This review is for Frankston Door & Window Centre, Carrum Downs VIC

28 Jan 2015

I had various quotes to supply custom made bi-fold doors providing I engaged a builder to install the doors, this is where Frankston Door & Window Centre stood out amongst the rest as they came to the house and provided a quote to manufacture custom bi-fold doors, demolish part of the kitchen wall and install the doors for a very reasonable price.
Installation occured with minimal disruption, the guys arrived on time, demolished the wall and installed 3 great looking bi-fold doors with no nasty surprises or hiccups. They left the kitchen and courtyard spotless and took the old doors and all the rubbish away with them.
I highly recommend Frankston Door & Window Centre, they provide excellent customer service, have excellent product knowledge and the installation team are outstanding.

This review is for Precise Paving & Dr. Turf, West Footscray VIC

28 Jan 2015

Ange from Dr Turf came out and did an amazing job. The front garden bed was tired, overfilled with soil and was in need of repair. Ange has enhanced the front of the house by landscaping the garden bed, removing the excess soil and finishing it off with a great selection of river rocks. The house now looks amazing from the street.
Ange also completely transformed the courtyard by installing a new section of lawn, the size is approximately 5500 x 2000. This required supplying and backfilling with top soil and new turf. Ange arrived on time and completed the work in under 4 hours. I highly reccomend Precise Paving & Dr. Turf to all people looking for a landscaper. I am very satisfied with the work Ange has completed, and the house now looks amazing. Thank you Ange.

This review is for Chatterton Lacework, Tullamarine VIC

17 Dec 2014

Gary from Chatterton Lacework provided outstanding service. It all started with Gary allowing me into the showroom outside his normal trading hours. Gary's advice on selecting the best suited lacework for our Victorian period home was excellent. This also ensured I had the correct amount of lacework for the front veranda of my home. The lacework was powder coated to suit the colour scheme of the home. Gary also recommended a suitably qualified person to install the lacework.

I highly recommend Chatterton Lacework to all people looking for lacework or decorative fences. Chatterton provide a excellent service and the quality of the product is outstanding.

Since installing the lacework to the front veranda, this has transformed our home and it looks amazing.

This review is for Avondale Steel Fabricators, Avondale Heights VIC

15 Dec 2014

I engaged John from Avondale Steel Fabricators to install new lacework on our front veranda. John provided a very good quote and even suggested we relocate a veranda post for the lacework to be fitted around a corner.
John arrived on time, collected the lacework from the manufacturer on my behalf and completed the job which included relocating the veranda post. The quality of work was excellent. Our house now looks amazing with the new lacework.
I highly recommend Avondale Steel Fabricators.

This review is for Victorian Hot Water, Nunawading VIC

26 Nov 2014

I needed my hot water system replaced due to a defective pilot and was fortunate enough to locate Victorian Hot Water. I was provided with a competitive quote over the phone for a replacement unit, as well as a price to have the pilot repaired. Due to the age of the hot water system i decided to replace the unit. Victorian Hot Water arrived to the house on time with a new hot water system. The job was completed in less than an hour, and even disposed of the old system. A great job done for a very competitive price. I would definitely recommend Victorian Hot Water to others.

This review is for Aspen Air, Patterson Lakes VIC

14 Nov 2014

Choosing a suitable air conditioning system for our period home was an experience that Chris Thomas from Aspen Air made a very simple decision for me. I had received 3 quotes, and they were all very different from the size of the unit to the number of ducts to install. I have a 2 bedroom period home with no space under the house to install a ducted air conditioning unit, so our only option was to install a refrigerated system in the ceiling. I chose Aspen Air as Chris provided expert advice for what is best suited to our home for a very competitive price. At no stage did I fell pressured to make a decision, I was comfortable to have Aspen Air install the air conditioner in our home. I highly recommend Aspen Air, Chris is fantastic and his knowledge is paramount. Aspen is well priced and I highly recommend Aspen Air.

This review is for Rollaway Shutters, Seaford VIC

31 Oct 2014

I received 3 quotes to supply and install plantation shutters in our period home. Of the 3 businesses we chose Rollaway Shutters due to exceptional service we received from Jim. My wife and I found Jim to be very knowledgeable, Jim offered great product knowledge and was able to match the colour of the plantation shutters to the colour scheme in our house. Jim's quote was reasonable, and we were very confident we chose the right business for the job. The lead time from accepting the contract to installation exceeded our expectations, we were informed it would be a 12 week turnaround, however installation occurred within 8 weeks. I have received great service from Jim, Norm and the team back in the office at Rollaway Shutters.

When it came to installation, Norm was fantastic, very flexible and worked around our schedule. The quality of the plantation shutters is excellent and the installation was also very well done. Norm did not leave any mess behind after he finished his work. I would be more than happy to recommend Rollaway Shutters, we are very happy with our purchase, and they look amazing in our house.

I have since been back in contact with Rollaway Shutters to now look at installing a retractable awning in our courtyard.

Thank you Jim, it has been a pleasure purchasing from you.

I highly recommend Eucalyptus Tree Services, excellent service for a very reasonable price. Thank you Josh, will definitely have you back out for any future work required.

This review is for Budget Price Security Doors, Albanvale VIC

06 Oct 2014

My first initial contact with Budget Security Doors was a positive experience. Charlie came to our house to quote for a new triple lock security door and door frame extension. The price was fantastic, best quote we had received. Not only did we accept the quote, we also had Budget Security Doors install a new fly screen and lockable window winder in the bathroom and a security screen on the bedroom window. All 3 items were made to measure and installed for a fantastic price. Charlie was a pleasure to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and offered fantastic service and advice. The security door looks amazing from the street. I will definitely have Budget Security Doors back later this year to install a rear security door and security screens on the remaining windows.
I highly recommend Budget Price Security Doors, fantastic service, exceptional quality products and a great business to deal with. Thank you Charlie, I really appreciate your products.
