    "Alex made me a quote for deck + pergola + french door opening and installation. From the review here I was really keen to work with him. The quote was 50% more expensive than ODA construction (that I went for) so I wanted to ask for details of the quote. Especially since Alex did his quote in one visit of 10 min max without taking proper measurement of the area and did not update the quote while we were changing spec of the building... weird, no?
    I would stay away form this type of business that must be doing really good job but still do not have any problem overpriced their work as long as they have jobs.

    "Alex Anderson (Director of Life Time Construction) appears presentable, polite and arrives on time which makes you feel at ease quite quickly. We have been dealing with Alex for approximately 5 months and during this time we have had an incredibly disappointing experience.
    Alex requested a deposit of 50%, we negotiated this to 20% given we were borrowing funds to pay this. Alex agreed to start our job but deferred it for one month. He then started to look at the job in more detail and the price kept going up. We requested Alex do the job on cost plus however he refused this. We were now suspicious given the number of issues that we had experienced and therefore sought further opinion from two other builders and one architect. All three individuals said that the job should cost 50% of what Alex was quoting. We approached Alex who said that his cost reflected the quality of output and mentioned at this point that he would do cost plus. We said that we were not satisfied with how things had been conducted and were going to use an alternative builder.

    We requested our funds be returned given Life Time Construction had our funds but had not delivered a service.

    Fast forward to 12th March 2018 and we received a phone call from Alex stating that he is liquidating his business and that we should not expect to receive our funds back.

    To further add, we contacted Registered Master Builders (the logo appears on the Life Time Construction website) last week to obtain guidance around recovering our funds and were told that Life Time Construction is not part of the Registered Master Builders Association.

    In short, we want to avoid any other individuals repeating our experience and loosing funds in vain, for that reason we are posting this review.

    "So happy that we were recommended this building company through word of mouth from several different sources. The attention to detail is outstanding and the integrity of the work is extremely high. Wouldn't use anybody else from now on as the workmanship on our bathroom was pristine. I would use Lifetime Construction if I was building a home in the future"

    "I hired Alex and his team to renovate our tired Townhouse in Birkenhead. We went from Drab to Fab! The renovation time was shorter than we expected, great team to work with and most important the workmanship is excellent. Thank you!"

    "I find it really important to find yourself a great local builder. Someone you know you can rely on is invaluable! My husband and I are not the 'handyman' types, so with the boys from Life Time Construction, we knew we were being taken care of, all our questions were answered and all our requirements had been met (no matter how fussy and particular I was being). Our renovations are now complete and i'm so happy with how everything was timed and flowed so smoothly! Perfect timing for our expanding family :) We love our home and are so pleased we decided to extend rather than sell up! Thanks again team! You guys are rockstars!"

    "In December 2014 I employed Alex and his workers to undertake an extension on my house. The end result and workmanship exceeded excellence. Both Alex and his workers were polite, communicated well , on time, and on budget. I highly recommend using this business for any building work that you may require . Without a doubt I will be using them again. "
