In May 2015 we purchased our home which was built in 1994 and other than a new modern kitchen and some painting all other areas were original.

Another home owner in the street who used J Lewis Building (JLB) to do a major renovation on their house 12 months earlier recommended them to us, which we were very thankful for.

STAGE 1; After we had gutted the 2 bathrooms and laundry, JLB did all the relining and other building work to get ready for tiling and painting. This work was done very quickly to a high standard and at a very reasonable cost.

STAGE 2; After seeing the workmanship of Stage 1 we had no hesitation in getting JLB to do this next major extension. This was to extend off the end of the garage and add new floor for office area and new ensuite both linking from master bedroom. Extend the deck, close in the end and roof for a spa, plus extend glass balustrade.

As the property is on a steepish section, a pole foundation had to be put in place to attach to existing house and support new extension. Also a major alteration to the roof line was required, this had to fit in with the existing style and lines of the house, the existing roof tiles and outside cladding. All this was excellently achieved and from all angles very hard to tell there has been an extension.

JLB gave us a quote and a time frame to complete the extension, this was within our budget and estimation, very acceptable price.

Workmanship;This was of the highest standard. Excellent group of builders, always neat and tidy, very reliable hard workers.

The job foreman Cody always informed us of how work was progressing, very good at discussing options, a good listener and excellent at making suggestions on how to improve the building process. Jonny Lewis was always on hand to discuss progress.

Site was always neat and tidy and rubbish taken away regularly.

We also had comments from other trades (plumber, electrician, painter, gib stopper, tiler) how easy it was to work with JLB and the quality of their finished work.

Our extension was completed to a very high standard which we are very proud of.

We would and have no hesitation in recommending J Lewis Building to do any type of building.
