"We were very fortunate to have Celtic Builders worked on our house renovation at Willetton. We started planning in mid Jan 2013. We had a tight budget and were upfront with the proprietor, Jon who was very understanding and suggested different options for us, focusing on the major items instead. For example, he suggested we keep the wooden door frames as well as the bedroom doors which he said will look good after a nice varnish and paint job respectively (true enough that the end results are fantastic). We finally decided on (1) a complete remodelling of the kitchen, (2) plastering the dated internal brick walls, (3) complete remodelling of the toilet, bathroom and ensuite, (4) complete rewiring of electrical and lighting, (5) new plumbing, (6) restoring the roof.
The work started in mid Feb with a target completion of end May. During this period, Jon contacted us at least once a week to update us on the progress. He will also gladly take our call in between his updates if we have issues to clarify with him.
Jon understood that the key feature of the house is the kitchen and he recommended we checked out Mike from Custom Kitchens and More. We had a preliminary kitchen design which we showed to Mike and he made further improvements to the design and also included the laundry bench top and cupboard into his very competitive quote for which we accepted. Jon and Mike worked very well in co-ordinating the installation of the kitchen which we are very pleased with the outcome.
As we have chosen to get our flooring, security and balustrade installation done by other contractors, Jon readily helped to co-ordinate these jobs for us.
Before we started our renovation, my wife and I were prepared for the stress that comes with a major project like this. Jon from Celtic Builders helped us to reduce the level of stress and allow us to enjoy this moment in the process. We moved into the house four months later and are now slowly enjoying the fruits of our labour. Even after the handover, we can still rely on Celtic Builders after sales service for some minor touch ups and etc.
Will certainly recommend them for any one who wants a personable service from a very knowledgeable and friendly builder. "
