Seona and Thomas van der Pol, 2014
“To whom it may concern,
Ricardo recently completed what turned out to be a fairly large extension build on our 60 year old post war cottage. The building had some structural issues that Ricardo resolved including raising one entire corner of the house. He transformed what was a ugly outdoor concrete slab into what is now a very nice, well insulated functional living room.
The job included a new porch to replace the one that was rotting in front of the house, several new windowsills, frames and external weatherboard walls that had been damaged by termites, replacing the carport entirely including several sections of new roof, and rebuilding our storage shed.
Ricardo has a very useful network of contractors that he called on for any specialty work that needed to be done and we are very happy with our new dining room, entry and storage!”
Paolo Denti, Architect RAIA
“I have known Ricardo Nogueira for over 8 years.
Over this period we have been involved together in several renovation projects including some extensive hard landscape structures at our own residence.
He has demonstrated excellent knowledge of building construction with the ability to solve problems in tricky building situation as well as constant attention to details.
Ricardo is dedicated to whatever task is at hand and he has always been hard working, very pinctual and honest person.
I have no hesitation in recommending him for his building enterprise.”
Alex Lima, Director of Brazilian Touch
“Ricardo Nogueira renovated Brazilian Touch in November 2001. He is a very conscientious employee who works very well both in a group and as an indivisual. He is a very dependable and well organised worker. I would definitely recommend him for any future positions, and I am happy to be a character referee.”
Shannon and Jacqueline, 2013
A quick note of thanks for all your help on our Highate Hill house renovation. This was a signfifcant body of work that included a lot of challenges and uncertainty, and we greatly appreciate your energy and commitment to a quality job.
We also really appreciated the multiple instances you took the initiative to identify and fix problems elsewhere in the house – these little things have made a big difference to the look and feel of our home. In addition, you were quick to involve other people and resources as required to ensure work progressed smoothly and in a timely fashion.
The end result is an enormous improvement from where we started, and we are both thrilled with the outcome.
Thanks again, we look forward to continuing to work closely with you in the near future.”
Gerard & Rachael, Everton Hills 2015
“My wife and I engaged Ricardo to undertake a broad range of home renovation work over the last 12 months; for a period of more than 23 weeks, the has included: re-laying timber decking boards, re-construction of pool and lower decks, stair constructions, complete garage re-build, internal wall demolition and redesign, bathroom renovation and installation of doors.
Ricardo always does a great job; he manages his trade’s people well and has taken on the role of ‘site supervisor’ throughout the time he has been working for us.
We remain very pleased with the work Ricardo has done for us and have no hesitation in recommending him to prospective customers.”
Michael, Red Hill
“I engaged Ricardo Nogueira in early 2016 to undertake significant renovations to my colonial Queenslander home. He is the best builder I have ever encountered. He is trustworthy, highly competent, hard working, very reasonably priced and was able to give me ideas and make suggestions to the renovation that have added more value to my property than I could have imagined.
The scope of work he completed for me included converting a sunroom into a carpark, installing a driveway, moving and reconstructing internal and external walls, bathroom renovations, fixing a rotten deck, building an additional deck, demolishing and building a new laundry, building retaining walls and fences, replacing stumps and many more things. Ricardo was able to and willing to help me with everything I needed done at my house, all for a very reasonable price. Ricardo has my highest recommendation, and I will be using him for any and all building and renovation work in the future.”
Ann Dyer, 2014
“I employed Ricardo for a small extension on my house in Brisbane. He is a tradesman who is both competent and creative. While the job was small, it presented a number of challenges, most of which I was not aware of until Ricardo had not only identified them, but had also come up with a solution. As well, he made a number of other very useful suggestions, which resulted in a finished product that was even better than I had initially envisaged. Several of his ideas actually saved me money on the job. Women employing tradesmen can sometimes feel in an invidious position. With Ricardo, this was never the case. For example, I had no hesitation at all in providing him with a key to the house, and his style was always consultative rather than directive. As well as all of the above, his price was more than competitive.
I would definitely employ him again, and am very confident in recommending him to others.”
Caroline Summers, Wilston 2012
“Ricardo completed a job over several weeks at my house in Wilston.
The project included rebuilding a rotting back deck, replacing floorboards and joists on the front deck, sanding and painting the outside of the house as well as many other handyman type of jobs. I found Ricardo always courteous, punctual and enthusiastic. I was very pleased with the standard of work done.
Ricardo is obviously passionate about his work. I would use his services again the future.”
John Lester, Annerly 2013
“Ricardo has completed an extensive renovation on my house in Annerley.
His team built a new en suite bathroom and walk in robe. They landscaped the garden and pool area.
The whole house was painted inside and the floors polished.
Ricardo and his team were a pleasure to work with and their attention to detail was an important part of their work.
Ricardo completed the work in a timely and professional way and at an extremely competitive price.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ricardo Nogueira as a builder and renovator.”
“Ricardo worked on a project with me in 2003-2004. I supervised the construction of a large engineered retaining wall, concrete steps, pathways and a timber fence.
Ricardo worked hard and took directions from me without any hesitation to see the project finished to a satisfactory standard.
Therefore, I am confident with his workmanship and willingness to fulfil any task he is willing to take on.”
“Ricardo worked on two projects for me – a room reconstruction and deck replacement in 2007 and a large privacy and noise fence in 2012.
He provides exemplary service – reliable, value for money and always willing to follow up. He is very knowledgable about many building matters, and is good at practical solutions. Ricardo is always willing to please and is very honest in his commercial dealings.”
Keith Brewster, Bald Hills 2013
“Ricardo completed an extensive renovation project of our investment property at Bald Hills. This was not a standard renovation, it was more like reconstructing the house from the ground up.
It involved partially rebuilding the foundations, removing asbestos and installing a new roof, a total rewire, replacing all the plumbing, construction of a new third bedroom, rebuilding the the existing bathroom and adding an ensuite, removing all the ceilings and internal wall cladding and replacing with gyprock, replacing all internal doors, installing wall and ceiling insulation, constructing a new covered deck and bi fold doors, installation of a new kitchen, new entrance stairs, fencing plus numerous other repairs.
Ricardo, with the help of a carpenter, an occasional labourer and only a few other trades completed this work in 12 weeks.
He loves what he does and on several occasions went beyond what you would expect from a contractor, like helping in his own time, to put a tarp over the roof at night before an approaching storm, something I very much appreciated.
Ricardo was dependable and punctual throughout the project and in the end completed a fantastic transformation from a wreck of house to a very appealing home.”
