We are very happy to provide a reference for Lance Irving and his team at Smith and Sons who built a large extension onto our 1950s home in October 2010. This included a new kitchen, dining and living area, ensuite, and large surrounding deck.

The build was finished on time and budget, and to the highest standard of workmanship. At all times the team were professional, friendly and courteous. The site was always kept tidy and safe which was greatly appreciated as we were living on site for half the build and have young children. From the very beginning we felt confident in the advice we were given and they showed honesty and integrity throughout.

Lance had the builders and all subcontractors incredibly well organised and he kept us well informed and updated at all times. The guys took obvious care and pride in their work and there were very few problems. Anything that did crop up was dealt with swiftly and with no dramas. We were particularly impressed with how seamlessly they tied in the extension with the old part of the house.

Probably our only regret was not taking Lance’s advice to use his recommended joiners to supply our doors and windows. If we were to do it all again we would certainly go with all Smith and Sons choices of trade’s people and subcontractors as this would ensure quality work and peace of mind.

We are absolutely delighted with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend Smith and Sons to anyone looking to extend or renovate.
