    "After having Major Back surgery, I needed my Bathroom Renovated to suit my new requirements. I called Dewar Drainage again and I am really pleased I did. John organised the work from start to finish and made it easy for me. He has done a reasonable amount of work for me over the years and I will continue to use him. "

I have really appreciated John\'s willingness to listen to my very vague ideas and then turn them into exactly what I wanted. His patience and experience gives me confidence that I will have a quality addition to my property."

    "After building 2 lifestyle properties from bare ground and having dealt with 2 supposed \"master builders\" and their related subcontractors.I would have to say that John Dewar is one of the very few I would want to work with again and again. It\'s much more that a guy with a digger, or someone who can install a water tank, build a retaining wall, lay pavers and a whole lot more. John brings ideas and practical solutions to a job. I\'m not sure if he\'s the cheapest around (and I hope he\'s not) remember though that \"quality exists long after the price is forgotten\"

    I\'ll be using John for any other work on my property.

    "John Dewar excavated a difficult site for us that involved around 1000 cubic metres of material, which he relocated for us to another part of our site where it was beded in profesionally and compacted while removing topsoils and then mounding for later use. Large augered holes were also required and this also was done with precision.

    A 33 metre mains sewerage extension was required where once again John with his versitile selection of diggers and machinery, easily obtained the councils high expectations of speciifications.

    With our site development John went on to dig out and lay in all of the storm water and domestic waist requirements in a professional manner.

    The councils plumbing and drainage inspectors never found fault with Johns work.

    In summary we hired John to undertake our site excavation on his price and profesional approach to our quotation request, but soon became apparent that John was a one stop shop when it came to site excavation, sewerage and stormwater/drainage. John saved us a great deal of money with his work, his material supply and professional suggestions.

    I would not hesitate in recomending J R Dewar Drainage for any number of projects and fully intend to use John in the future.

    "We used John for a large amount of work over a period of more than 12 months. The work included retaining walls, drainage, pergolas, installation of a Spa Pool, concreting and more. The workmanship is excellent. We have many comments from visitors about how great everything looks. We would not have got anywhere near the results we have without John’s input. We were able to give him the general concept and he made it happen. He is incredibly detailed and discovered and avoided way more issues than we could have imagined. We followed almost all of his recommendations and they have all proven to have been excellent decisions.

    We have also recommend John to some friends who have found him to be excellent as well.
