" Ben from Modern Living was fantastic. We had a wall removed and he was very thorough and explained everything he was going to do. His price was fair and he was reliable. He completed the job quickly and efficantly. We would recommend for any kind of renovation.

"My wife and I had hoped that we had found a competent tradie that took pride in his work. However we are horrified with the quality of work produced by Ben.
I do not know how ServiceSeeking has allowed such a person to be recommended via your website and as a consequence we have been scammed $2000.
Ben’s first job for us was to take and replace the bathroom ceiling and insulation, with some general plastering of cracks. We paid Ben $875 for this work and we found it this work to be somewhat acceptable, however with slight damage to our bathroom vanity top.
Ben’s second job was to enclose the stairs from the ground floor to the first floor. This would provide us some extra storage space. We were really looking forward to this work.
He asked as to pay upfront $2000 to his carpentry, which we did, and in hindsight should have made us concerned.
However after explaining many times over the course of many weeks to Ben what we want, even sending diagrams of exactly what we wanted, Ben has failed to listen and produce what was expected. "

"Not only were you completely unreasonable in regards to the cabinetry job by not allowing it to be finished you were also unreasonable in regards to anyone coming in to repair any problems you had with the cabinetry. You asked for all materials to be replaced instead of just the shelving which was unreasonable considering the cost and high quality of the doors with no defects. Being threatened with a bad review if i did not meet all of your demands after very fair offers is unfair and not the way to treat people who have already offered a complete solution to any issues that you felt were intolerable. I work at a very high standard, but was not given the chance to complete the work requested. "
"en Nielsen from Modern Living gave us a sensible and reasonable quote for our bathroom repair.
He did the work efficiently and for the amount quoted. Ben was cheerful and took pride in his work. We are pleased with the result. Recommended."
