    "Steve,

    I have left a number of messages with you over the last few weeks and as yet I have not had a response. On advice from my solicitor, I have been advised to write to you and advise you of the problems I am experiencing with the quality of your work.

    1. You left the job with the pantry roof leaking. You fixed one leak in the roof by sending Dean and Andrew and I advised you that here was still a leak and that there was water coming in to the kitchen via the internal wall. I called you several times, with no response. I eventually replaced two broken tiles myself and this has solved the leak. 2. The quality of the waterproofing in the ensuite and main bathroom was unacceptable with several faults such as exposed nail heads, tears in the waterproofing, unfinished lining of joins between sheets and torn joining strips. The tiler refused to tile the showers as he could not guarantee a moisture seal. I had to get another qualified tradesman to redo this work at my cost. You represented to me that you had been trained in how to apply the waterproofing membranes correctly - I would like you to show me your certificate from this training as I do not believe you are qualified based on the difference between your work and that of the plumber who repeated the work. 3. The drains on the ensuite and main bathroom were blocked. The plumber removed building rubble from the drains but they still remain blocked. I have a qualified tradesman coming to unblock the drains tomorrow. 4. When you lined the lounge with Gib, you put a nail hole in the radiator feed line. This has since ruptured and I have had to remove the Gib in three areas to fix the leak. I now have the cost of relining and gib-stopping the damage. 5. Your delivery drivers caused considerable damage to my garden. As of yet, you have not made this good. Steve, despite over 30 unanswered calls and texts, I am willing to give you one final opportunity to correct these issues. Please contact me by the 25th February to resolve these issues otherwise I will seek damages through the courts. Yours sincerely, Jim Jim Moylan"

    "WARNING: DO NOT HIRE THIS TRADESMAN: We hired Steve from Bedford Building Contractors in January to do some building work on the property, which included building the framing for a new deck. Steve was the supervisor on this job and had been on site during the build, and had a team of 2-3 guys working on the deck framing. After they completed the job and Steve was wanting final payment, we had some concerns about the work, some of which we had already raised with Steve previously, and these concerns were confirmed when we had another two other builders out to have a look at the work to give us a second opinion on it and they were horrified at the poor standard of the workmanship, and advised us that much of the build did not comply with the current building code, and were appalled that another Licensed builder would have supervised and signed off on this work as being acceptable & complete. We then decided to seek out an independent building inspector to come out and have a look at the deck, and produce a thorough, full written report on the issues with the build, so we knew exactly what the issues were and had it in writing so we could discuss these with Steve. The report stated ‘Overall the workmanship is not up to standard and in many areas does not meet current building code requirements. Aspects such as the the support for bearers, support for the deck, specifications of the stairs, bracing, and the size and type of bolts and fixings used, are not in accordance with the current building code requirements and need to be addressed’. The deck wasn’t even built level in some parts. This has left us with a big problem which Steve has not made any attempt to fix. He has ignored our emails, phone calls & texts. In trying to find out how much it will cost us to repair the deck framing to get it up to an acceptable, safe and compliant standard we have been told by other builders that we are looking at a complete deck rebuild, that the whole deck framing & piles (which do not meet minimum depth requirements) need to be ripped out and the deck framing build started again from scratch. There are just too many things wrong with this build to reasonably fix it. Steve has made no attempt to put this right or fix his mistakes and still continues to ignore us. Anyone considering to use this tradesman should think again, the incompetence of his team and his lack of communication and incredibly poor, outright rude customer service and business skills have made us wish we never hired him to do this job."

    "I engaged Steve in Aug 2015 to do a re-clad job for my property, the job was done approx Sep/Oct 2015. However, later on i found out they have mistakenly cut one of the hot water cylinder overflow pipe, this caused leak in the bathroom and walls. I contact Steve immediately to get his plumber to fix it. His plumber came in Dec 2015 did half of the job, and told me he will be back next week to compete it before xmas. So far in Feb 2016, i haven\'t heard back from Steve anymore. I emailed, called, texted......To me, this job is not completed!!!!!"

Rung me 1/2 an hour before he came etc. however that's where the service ended. After promising to send the quote through we never heard from him again. I tried calling, leaving messages, emailed him for a reply and even texted him but to this date have not had a response back."

    "Recommended via another architect when we were let down by landscapers. Steve came round the day of my call and our deck was done in 3 days, very prompt, good team, materials sourced by them came out more cost effective than even we could get. Great result.
    Highly recommended and we will be getting Bedford Building Contractors to price a couple of projects we have in the pipeline.

The job was to combine a bathroom and toilet, install new vanity, new shower, new toilet, they estimated 10 days and finished in 9. They managed the Plumber, the Electrician, the Gib stopper, the painter, the skip, the tiler etc etc.
    These guys know what they are doing and are professionals.

    "In the past I have problems with building work, and when I wanted to renovate a bathroom and wash house I was worried about how the job would be done. Bedford Building Contractors were recommended by a friend and I am very pleased with the work they have done. The quality of work is excellent, and I was particularly pleased with the way that Steve project managed the job, he sorted out tilers, plumbers, and electricians and told me what was happening and when. Steve's team were all great. They were pleasant and respectful and worked hard. I would not hesitate on recommending Steve and his team, Anne, Torbay"

Steve and his collegues did a fabulous job - Steve coordinated all the trade people involved - it was so easy just dealing with one person and him coordinating, builders, gib stoppers, electrician, plumber etc. Everyone turned up when they should have and for me the whole thing was painless and looks fantastic as well. I'm wrapt with both the process and the outcome - and all of them are so pleasant and professional to deal with, and great at communicating along the way. I thoroughly recommend using their services !!!!"

    "Steve is an honest guy & a pleasure to deal with. He is very knowledgeable and built a timber retaining wall about 12m long and 500mm high (at the deepest part) on the boundary of my One Tree Hill property which has a lot of rock. He achieved this by Dyna-Bolting posts to the rock and pouring a concrete anchor beam beside it for extra fixing & strength. This was an excellent solution which saved me money and one that even a qualified builder turned fencing contractor with over 35 years experience (who is on no cowboys with loads of great feedback) was unable to come up with! He was also flexible enough to do this for me 'labour only' thereby not building in any excess profit to allow for the unexpected as a 'fixed price' quotation would entail. I've already used Steve's services again twice since to do a lot more work as this property is being sub-divided. I will continue to use Steve in future and of course, I highly recommend him."

    "We started using Bedford Building Contractors for all of our building work back in February. We are a gasfitting company predominantly installing gas fires in multi million dollar properties, and as such needed someone who has an eye for detail, and is very meticulous in their finishing work.
    From the start, Steve has always been very professional, from pricing right through to the end, always finishing within the required timeframe.
    We have also had fantastic feedback from our customers who regularly ask for his contact details for their own building projects. We would highly recommend Steve and his team for any building project you may require.
