To The R&M Builders Team,
Our recently renovated home was a long time coming as we had heard a lot of horror stories about renovations gone wrong and dodgy builders – thankfully thanks to Rod & his Team this was NOT one of them.
Right from the start Rod was upfront with everything and went out of his way to explain any detail whenever I rang up to ask the dumb question (and I did a lot).
Apart from the fantastic job they did with the build and the quality, it is the little things that they did that helped to make the whole experience less painful, like getting Matty our friendly and best ever foreman to disassemble our beds when we moved out as I couldn’t get the bolts out (turns out I was trying to unscrew the wrong ones) or playing removalists and moving furniture around or ensuring that a buried pet was not disturbed during the excavation. There are many other examples too numerous to name that were all done, nothing was too hard.
Of course there were some hiccups but they were handed quickly and professionally by Rod & his Team to everyone’s complete satisfaction.
Our renovation was completed two months ahead of schedule which ended up saving us two months’ rent – a big plus for our budget.
A special thanks to Mandy, Roselle & Rees who operate a well-run professional and personal customer centric engine room that allowed Rod and his team of builders to focus on what they do best – BUILD.
It is not often that you can honestly recommend a builder but in this case we most whole heartedly do.
If you want someone you can trust to build your dream then you will not be disappointed in partnering with R & M Builders.
When we are ready to do any other work then we would have no hesitation in choosing Rod & his Team again.
Thanks for everything – Bob, Di, Alex, Luke & Buddy (The noisy cockatiel) – Alexandria Project
That was entirely my pleasure. I am really confident that you're the best team for us, and Matt trusts my judgement. I place a lot of importance on the feeling I get when I meet and work with people, and every single one of your team made a fantastic impression. There were 2 other builders that, although they were competitive, I just didn't like to interact with, so for me the choice to go with you was easy.
Dear Rod, Mandy & Team,
We are now at the end of the build and I just wanted to express our thanks for the work your Team has put in to our renovation.
You have of course turned the plans we had into reality and helped us achieve a much better home than we had before. All our family and friends are amazed at the transformation and in such a short time. The schedule you prepared at the start of the job and the expected completion date were exactly right. We are thrilled with the end result and our home looks fantastic. We have a pool, a level garden for our 4 young children to play in safely, a 2 car garage, a roof-top deck and, my kitchen is a thing of great beauty and all this in Annandale. I am a very happy woman!
We lived on site for all bar 3 1/2 weeks and had ample opportunities to watch the progress and see your team at work. Your Team on site was wonderful, your foreman Mark was at all times, professional, courteous, hard working, involved and fair. All the trades and sub contractors on site worked well together, there was a good line of communication and I never witnessed a single dispute and I was there for most of it. Living on site had its challenges, but Mark and the rest of your team was not one of them.
The Office Team was great also, from the very beginning of the tender process, Rees and Roselle were in frequent contact and once the project started, they continued their involvement. Now that we are nearing the end of all works, Rees has continued to help where he can, providing advice and suggestions in relation to the painters and final details with the pool. I cannot praise his involvement enough.
You are very lucky with your personnel. I have already recommended you to my friends and I will again. If I ever need to renovate again, which I hope I won't, I will certainly contact your team first.
Kindest regards to you all,
I am delighted to provide a referral for Rod Clarke, R+M Builders
We first got to meet Rod in 2000 through our Architect. Rod bid competitively for renovations to our terrace in Newtown. I am glad to say that he was successful in his bid. Rod and his team did an excellent job, which made us seek him again for our major building project last year. This time it was a demolition of an old terrace in Alexandria and rebuilding a 3-storey terrace from scratch. We are again extremely happy with the results.
Rod and his team have many strengths including:
The team is excellent in its work doing quality building works with attention to detail
Rod and his team are very easy to deal and work with, making stressful situations easy.
The subcontractors used by Rod also have high quality standards and are expertly managed by Rod leaving the client with one point of contact
Rod is a very good project manager keeping the project within budget and time. He is quick to bring to our attention any variations so we can then decide on the next course of action
Rod and his team bring a wealth of experience of their trade to the party giving good advice as required
The team is very good in building relationships with their clients and other parties (council, neighbours, etc.
We are very happy with the results and have no hesitation in recommending Rod to prospective clients. You are welcome to call me if you require and further information.
Our site was a difficult one due to the amount of sand that had to be removed and the fact that the ground also had to be stabilised before construction could commence. You undertook the job with competence and professionalism and you also dealt with our many questions with great patience. The placement of the concrete piers was our main concern as they had to virtually hold our house up, but the work was carried out without stress or technical hitches. Most importantly for us being inexperienced renovators you and your workers arrived when you said you would and the job was completed on time.This is most unusual in the building industry in Sydney.
Hi Rod, Chris and I want to say thank you very much to R&M for the great job everyone did on our new bathrooms. Special thanks to Greg who kept the work schedule running on time and kept us up to date with progress and the next stages. The quality of the workmanship and attention to detail of all the trades didn’t just meet our expectations but excelled them and we are thrilled with the perfect tiling lines and the way our fittings and fixtures were professionally installed. We will certainly be recommending R&M to anyone who are looking for a reliable and quality building company.
In 2006 I went to select tender to develop a new three storey terrace house in Woollahra. My Structural Engineer recommended I invite R and M builders to tender. Their tender price was very competitive and they won the project. I developed a very successful working relationship with Rod, Mandy and their team right from the beginning. They are professional, friendly, helpful, honest and full of good ideas. They also developed a very good relationship with the Council who were the PCA and the neighbours. My family was very happy with the final result and the high quality of the finishes. The project came in on time and to budget. In September, 2010 I commenced a major refurbishment of a large eight bedroom, five bathroom residences in Bellevue Hill. I went straight to R and M builders to develop this property for us since I was so happy with the outcome of our first project together. This job is a cost plus contract and Rod and his team are making innovative suggestions to improve the design and save us money. Their attention to detail is excellent and they take great pride in their workmanship. They have a wonderful passion for building the best that they can and the mood on site is very positive. I have no doubt that this project will go as well as our first project together. I highly recommend R and M builders and I am already planning to use them again in a refurbishment and extension to a residence in Dulwich Hill in 2012. Jacqui Krause - Woollahra
Dear Rod and Mandy, we have been meaning to email you for so long now, that the delay is getting embarrassing; it is our pleasure to recommend you to our friends. We had a great experience as a result of using your services. Best wishes. Soraya and David – Stanmore
I cannot praise highly enough the work conducted at my home over a period of three months (from August to November 2010) by Rod and his team of trade professionals at R&M Builders. What began as a relatively small project grew into a major undertaking as I decided to do a much larger refurbishment and replacement project at home than I had originally planned. Rod is thoroughly professional, reliable and was able to put into a clear and concrete form the ideas I had and the concept I had visualised. The end result is simply first class. Some particular keywords I would use to describe Rod and his team: professional reliable responsible supportive attentive to needs and issues timely dedicated hard-working fast at completion top-quality work and results personable consultative solutions-oriented economical communicative cost-effective efficient As a project manager, Rod excels: he gives clear directions and sets and communicates clear parameters for and expectations of his team, to which they respond. He also has profound knowledge of planning and consent issues and in short, provided a total service: I never once had to worry about any detail whatever as Rod was always in control and thinking ahead as well as having a ready answer for any issue or question. In short, Rod is a building and construction genius! I would recommend that anybody needing any building work, talk to Rod first. I also intend to appoint Rod to undertake other projects I have in the future. Dr Benjamin Pittman - Lilyfield
Timeliness and good communication have addded to the level of professionalism we have not been used to when dealing with builders and tradespeople. It has been a pleasure working with you and your workmanship and care for detail is greatly appreciated.
