We had contacted a number of companies prior and were not impressed with the attitude towards the extension or our modest budget which we could not afford to have blow out. Paul from Hurst Constructions meet us on site, discussed in detail our vision for the project and got back to us in a timely manner with a very reasonable fixed quote. Throughout the project, Paul and the team communicated well and kept us up to date with all steps of the process. Even when an unforseen hold up occurred, Paul's relationship with his contractors and local tradespeople meant that the job continued and was completed within the scheduled time period. We are very happy with the extension and have had no issues with the quality of the workmanship. Thank you again to the Hurst Construction team. Read more

Paul and the team were a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process and made it all seem easy. All tradesmen involved were polite and professional and took care of our pets including indoor-only cats. There were very minimal extra costs and they were accommodating of changes along the way.
