Our clients who have supplied these testimonials are more than happy to speak to you about their renovation experience.
I understand why GSB has achieved such a great reputation and multiple awards. Please pass on my appreciation to the team. Very best regards, Mark
From the start, we appreciated their flexibility and patience while we made changes and
chose the fittings. Kelly and Stephanie in the office couldn’t have been more helpful or easier to work with.
Green-Shore quoted a build time that was less than half that quoted by other builders we approached and they
achieved it. This was particularly appreciated as we chose to live on site throughout the renovation.
They achieved this in part through excellent scheduling and there was hardly a day when there weren’t several people onsite. Clint, our site manager, regularly worked with us to devise the best outcomes for each area of the house and we are grateful for his gentle feedback and flexibility when we made some last minute changes. He quickly responded to any problems or concerns and we much appreciated his attention to detail.
We so enjoyed having Green-Shores’ regular team on site, in particular Kyne and Barry who worked so hard and were so patient with all our questions. We always felt completely comfortable leaving for work knowing that they were on site.Green-Shore clearly has a good relationship with their sub-contractors and we very much benefited from that.
We have enjoyed the whole process of building with Green-Shore and would have absolutely no reservation in recommending them to anyone else or using them again ourselves.
While I was so apprehensive at first as it was a huge commitment financially, this was overcome by your professionalism and care. We would also appreciate it greatly if you could pass on our sincere thanks and appreciation to all the people who worked on our home. They were all great people and highly skilled.
From the start to finish I dealt with brilliant people – Quentin and Jamie drew up plans and walked me through what was possible and put my “wish list” into a tangible building plan.
Once we had Council approval – Clint took charge – he is truly amazing! Every issue was addressed promptly and finished to perfection. I know budgets and timelines were met because of his dedication, expertise and attention to detail. I am extremely grateful he was with me on this journey and appreciated his advice, understanding and guidance with some of the tough decisions.
A function often overlooked is the work done behind the scenes – administration! I was very privileged to know the girls in the office – Kelly, Steph and Lisa – thank you for all your help, especially understanding the contract and variations, choosing products and colours, passing on my concerns and giving me a boost when I needed it.
Last but not least the “subbies” – what an amazing bunch of tradesmen – needless to say this build would not have been possible without their expertise. The cabinet maker Gerd – his genius with my kitchen, laundry and bathroom cabinets has to be seen to be believed! The painter James and his team were fun to have around and they worked to perfection. I could only compare their work to a fairy tale where the ugly duckling is turned into a beautiful swan. To the brickies, chippies, tilers and everyone else involved – thank you for making my home just the way I wanted it.
At this point in time we simply can’t afford to do the extension. I thoroughly appreciate the lengths you went to in order to get us a quote that fitted the budget I specified while making sure we got the rooms we wanted. Unfortunately, after sitting down and doing some specific calculations we simply can’t justify the costs.
Thank you so much for what you did for us. If we were going to do the extension, it would certainly be through Green-Shore as you’ve been nothing but friendly, professional, mindful of the budget we stated and timely with getting back to us.
Apologies again that we won’t be doing the extensions and that it took me so long to reply.
I’ll send your practical completion final invoice to the bank for payment.
We are absolutely thrilled with everything and everyone. I shed a tear saying goodbye to Kyne and Ian. It has been so fun having them and all the other guys around.
Now the real work starts for me to organise the rest of the work and sort everything out!
Bev and I would like to extend our thanks to the both of you and your team.
The work was done well, and by people who know their trades and are proud of their work.
Clint has especially impressed Bev for quietly listening to her requests and suggesting solutions that have made the renovation project a big success in her eyes.
Thank you gentlemen.
We had a major renovation and upstairs extension completed recently by Green-Shore (while we lived in the house!) and throughout the process we were impressed by the quality of their work, their overall approach and their dedication to providing an end result that exceeds expectation.
They have assembled the A team across all the trades and there was never a time when they didn’t deliver something they promised. It could not have been an easier process for us as a busy family.
Thanks guys, an amazing result.
As Em alluded, to say we are impressed is an understatement; both the house and experience with GSB has far exceeded our expectations.
Yes we are great clients 😉 but that is more a reflection on your approach, or perhaps a combination of your skills and our building intuition (or lack thereof).
Whilst we cannot wait to experience the house, we will also have a touch of sadness that we will not see the tradies on site; they are what stand out to me as your greatest asset ; Hamish and William will miss them I am sure, perhaps the tradies won’t miss Williams questions (not to take away from the work done behind the scenes of course).
On that note, please use the house as you see for for an referral/reference point/marketing.
Thanks again to you, Clint and your team ; looking forward to a sneaky beer/champagne with you all when all is done over the next few weeks.
Thank you for your message. It is with a heavy heart that I pay this last invoice tonight, only because it means this most excellent project with you all is now coming to an end. It has been SUCH a pleasure working with you all, I am not sure how to describe it. We have loved every moment of our renovation. More on that later.
We will be in touch,
Thank you for turning our 70’s ugly granny flat into our dream home – we absolutely love it. You did such an outstanding job.
Clint’s ability to manage our build in such a professional way and to a high standard was very impressive (my husband is a stickler for detail!).
You all made the process very enjoyable.
Thank you and I wish you all the best in business.
From design to handover, all the staff at Green-Shore were a pleasure to deal with. We lived in our home during the process and all site trades were respectful of our young family and worked so efficiently that completion came around surprisingly early.
The final product is a dream come true, so light, bright and spacious for our growing family.
We had a great experience designing and building our extension with them. From design to completion, the whole process was handled brilliantly by a fantastic team at Green-Shore and everything exceeded our expectations.
Our extension was completed right on schedule with no delays to a very high standard and 6 months later we are still happy.
We were very impressed with the entire team and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again on any future projects.
At every meeting and stage of the planning Green-Shore Builders were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. All communications were dealt with promptly, and if there were any issues or changes to our plans or variations, they were addressed with the minimum of fuss.
The work commenced with a realistic scheduled and we had a clear understanding at each stage what was planned. The renovations and works were carried out with a minimum of fuss and sensitivity to the fact we were living in the house throughout the whole process. The Green-Shore team even managed to have our new Ensuite completed in just two weeks so we would have as little disruption as possible.
Green-Shore’s trades and contractors were all polite, courteous and helpful and all their workmanship was to a very high standard. Every trade introduced themselves on arrival and at the end of every day the site was cleaned up before they left. These sort of considerations certainly had a very positive impact on our renovation experience.
The renovations were completed on time and before the scheduled finish date. Even after completion, any follow up we have had has been addressed promptly and without hesitation.
We would like to thank Quentin, Clint, Mike, Peter, Jamie, Barry, Stephanie, Kelly and all the Green-Shore team who we have met during this journey, for making this such a positive experience. We are thrilled with our ‘new’ home.
We would definitely recommend Green-Shore Builders to anyone who is planning to build or renovate.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Green-Shore for renovations on your home. Green-Shore were recommended to us by a friend who was pregnant and building a second storey on their home to accommodate their growing family (much the same as us!). After some initial hesitation and anxiety about whether to renovate (vs buy), on the whole we found the renovation experience with Green Shore to be unexpectedly pleasant. The things that we most like about them are..
- their carpenters that built our 2nd storey were Green-Shore staff and were professional, friendly, helpful and tolerant. They humoured our 3 and 5 year old boys almost every day they were here and helped me out of a bind on several occasions (e.g. helped me organise replacement of my broken hot water system)
- the office staff are all very patient and helpful
- Clint, their Site Supervisor, has very high standards of his trades and sub-contractors which suited us just fine. A few times he picked up imperfections before us and had already organised a repair
- the variations on the contract price for “the build” amounted to less than 5% which seemed pretty good to us
- they genuinely seem to care about their clients
Thank you so much for all the time and effort that the whole team put in to complete our renovation.
The brief was to build our boys a games room large enough to store all the Lego that we have acquired over the years. The room that they have ended up with is spacious, sunlit and their own little haven to allow their imaginative and artistic minds to run free. It will also allow them easy access in and out of the pool.
I am also delighted with my new laundry. Although Jamie tried to convince me that he could have renovated it himself (which I’m sure he could have) it might not have been completed in our lifetime and to the high standard that you have created.
We are also very thankful for how you accommodated our little extension on top of our extension. Although in shock when we first realized the damage that those pesky termites had done to our roof we were grateful that you discovered it during the process as the ramifications of the roof had collapsed would have been a lot worse.
I hope I haven’t miss anyone but please ensure that you thank each of these people who were apart of the process for us Quentin, Clint, Peter, Jamie, Stephanie, Kelly, Russell, Barry, Ben, Adrian & Allan at Green-Shore.
Ivan & Carl the Bricklayers, Stuart the Electrician, Paul Mitchell & the boys from Two Dogs Roofing, Robbie the Plasterer, Matt & Tom the Gyprockers, Carl the Cabinetmaker, Greg & Harley the Tiler’s and Kevin the Carpenter.
You’ve all played a vital role in putting big smiles on all of our faces especially Jono and Hugh and their own little LEGOLAND.
The professionalism of all of your staff and trades should be commended.
To have staff like this only comes from great leadership so well done Quentin and Clint on your amazing building company, we would have no hesitation recommending you to anyone looking for a reliable building company.
We would like to wish you all the very best for the future and once again many thanks for our wonderful renovation we are over the moon with final result!
Melissa, Jamie, Jonathon & Hugh Morphett.
All aspects of our extension were thorough and efficient, from the planning stages through to hand-over, especially as our young family were living in the house with the renovations going on around us. Some of the highlights were the S.W.A.T. team style of demolition crew, the courteous manner of ‘tradies’, the range and quality of selections and the time to complete the build, which actually was completed ahead of schedule. We would highly recommend Green-Shore Builders to anyone else.
They were very accommodating as we lived in our home during the renovation and they aimed to minimise the disruptions. Green-Shore’s employees in both the office and on site are a credit to the company. We love the finished product and our home. We wish Quentin and Clint all the best.
Approximately 10 months passed before we had made up our minds to undergo our renovations – and Green-Shore was still our first choice. Quentin continued taking my calls after all this time, and with Jamie, continued to send new ideas and plans through to me.
Once we had finalised our plans Deborah was amazing in guiding our final choices and decisions for all our finishing touches. As we were living in the house Clint, Kyne, Matt, Ben, Adrian, Marcus and Pat were fantastic about working around us and even chased the dog home a few times!
The comradeship that the team had with all other tradies and workers made them a pleasure to have working on the house. No problem was too small and Clint was always happy to help out with any concerns or queries-even responding on a weekend when needed!
The renovation was completed in an amazingly short time and not a day went by without something happening! We were very impressed with all aspects of our renovation and have loved moving upstairs and entertaining in our new dining room. Thanks again for all your hard work and dedication.
We did contact a number of building companies and experienced a variety of feedbacks, ranging from getting no response at all, some who in spite of our clear wish to keep the existing ground level structure recommended knocking down and rebuilding to very high quotes that were far above our budget. Green-Shore was the only company who replied to us within a very short time after our first contact and Quentin took the time to listen to our first rather vague ideas.
Several constructive and helpful meetings later the very positive first impression continued while Green-Shore helped us prepare the detailed plans and provided us with clear and very transparent cost estimations. The scope of our project included a second storey addition as well as quite significant changes to the ground level floor plan opening up the entire space and removing a lot of dividing walls. Especially during this planning and approval process which can be a bit overwhelming at times for someone without any building experience, we really appreciated the guidance, honesty and diligence with which the team tried to realise as many of our wishes within the given structural and financial restrictions. The timely and thorough approach and expert advice during the council approval phase as well as their support and guidance with the selection process enabled us to make the right decisions and we couldn’t have been better looked after in the phase leading up to the start of the building activities.
It was very exciting when the actual building activities started in January 2013 and the progress the team made within a short time was simply incredible. We were pleasantly surprised by how professional, quality orientated and friendly everyone on site was at all times, always taking the time to listen to our questions and explaining the work stages.
We also certainly did not expect the team to be executing very hard physical work on days where temperatures soared towards and above 40 degrees! Clint’s personal commitment to delivering the highest quality and customer service which we experienced seeing him onsite very regularly, showed in the excellent craftsmanship of the work and the remarkable planning of activities that resulted in the building activities being finished several weeks ahead of schedule.
We never experienced a day where there was no tradesman on site, there was always work being carried out and coordination of all the different activities was exceptional throughout the whole period.
As we have never built or renovated before we did not know what to expect but could not have expected a smoother and more pleasant experience. The customer service of the entire team and throughout the building progress is something which we think is very unique for Green-Shore and which has led to our project being delivered with impeccable quality, within budget and several weeks ahead of schedule! We are thrilled with the way our plans have translated into our beautiful new home and couldn’t have had a better partner to realise this project and can very highly recommend the Green-Shore team.
We accepted their planned renovation that matched our budget beautifully and work commenced on the site in late November with a proposed finish date of mid to late June 2014.
Our slab went down on the 14th December 2013 & all the while the Green-Shore tradesmen from the Granite workers, plumbers, electricians, demolition crew to the roof carpenters had been friendly, prompt & professional with a fantastic finish, we were getting very excited.
Work continued unabated through January 2014 until on the 31st of January 2014 our youngest Daughter Maddie was diagnosed with cancer at 8 months old.
Once Green-Shore became aware of our situation they piled on the trades, worked long hours in an endeavor to complete our renovation well ahead of schedule due to the fact that Maddie could not come home while the house and front and back yards were in such a state. It was almost like watching an episode of renovation rescue or the block, with tilers, plumbers, sparkies, renderers and roof tilers working together like a well-oiled machine.
Our house was completed 2 months ahead of schedule and with the help of a load of volunteers (some from Green-Shore) we finished the landscaping, painting and tiling by the first week of April and Maddie, my wife, Courtney and our 4 year old daughter Charli came home to a completely finished house which well exceeded our wildest dreams.
If Green-Shore doesn’t win the National award, then I believe they should be given some kind of recognition for helping a family in need.
With a finish second to none and massive hearts, I have no hesitation in recommending Green-Shore Builders to friends, family or anyone in the market for renovating or extending their existing home.
I also have great pleasure in letting you know that Maddie has just about kicked cancers butt & is doing exceptionally well. Thanks Quentin and Clint. Thanks Green-Shore.
We have continued to be impressed throughout the build, they were always fantastic at communication, resolved issues instantly on site, very organized and the finish was such a high quality. All the trades that came through understood their jobs on site and were also of a very high standard. Our dealings with the GSB office staff were always so friendly, helpful and supportive. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making it such a stress free and rewarding project for us. We love our new house, it is such a pleasure to live in and can highly recommend Green Shore Builders to anyone who is thinking of building or renovating.
During the building period, we requested a number of additional items to be included and Green-Shores flexible approach ensured that they were readily accommodated. As our site supervisor, you were professional, approachable, unflappable and ensured that you kept us well informed of progress. All the tradesmen and other workers were excellent and considerate of the fact that we were living in the house. A number of our neighbours and friends commented on the effective organisation an speed of the building and the quality of work achieved. Many Thanks to Quentin, Clint and the team at Green-Shore for a positive renovation experience and a great new look to our home. We would definitely recommend Green-Shore Builders to anyone who is planning to build or renovate.
