Testimonials


"“We have been in our house for 8 weeks and are loving the experience. We are very impressed with the quality of the build and the craftsmanship your team demonstrated throughout the project. The detailing is superb and the finishing is to a standard that fully complements the great design. We really appreciate the attention to the finer points of the finish, and the commitment to excellence in construction which characterized the job from the start to its finish.

Equally important to us though, was the manner in which you and your team interacted with us over the course of your build. Your communication was excellent, as was your willingness to adapt when we asked for changes, and your patience in explaining what was possible and why you were carrying out construction and fit-out in particular ways. In that regard, we really appreciated the way you managed all of the sub-contractors. It was clear to us that there was a lot of mutual respect and professionalism among the wider team, and that you all worked very well together to deliver such a great outcome.

At the start of the build we were both quite anxious about what lay ahead. However, we found the entire process to be positive and enjoyable. Your guys were smart, industrious and skillful, and were obviously keen to make sure we had a great experience. Thanks to all of you for a great house and a wonderful journey.”"

"“From my first meeting with John Garlick Builders, until the day they handed me the keys to my new home, they’ve been a pleasure to deal with. From helping me find ways to save costs, to guiding me through decisions that needed to be made during the build, they helped make building a house an enjoyable experience. The quality of their work was high; it’s clear their team of builders and subcontractors hold themselves to high professional standards. I can recommend them to anyone.”"

"“I just wanted to say how incredibly impressed both of us have been by the amazing job the sub-contractors are doing/have done... What a great team you guys have got working with and for you. Everyone has been really tolerant of and lovely to us and the quality of work has been really high and many of our stresses have just evaporated into thin air. It has been really clear how much everyone has pulled together which has meant a lot to us and the house is looking amazing.”"

"“John Garlick Christchurch Master Builders were contracted to renovate and extend our Sumner home. The build quality, guidance and ongoing support were superb. Living in Dunedin and renovating and extending our house in Sumner meant that we placed a lot of trust in our builders. John Garlick builders never let us down. We are thrilled and, the feedback on the quality of our build has been amazing! John Garlick Builders offer building excellence and integrity. We would most certainly work with them again.”"

"“Now we are back into our Browns Road Property, I write to express our delight with the work undertaken by your company. It was on the recommendation of a family member in your industry and knowing a well-satisfied Sumner client that J. Garlick became our preferred builder. Since you accepted the job we have nothing but praise for all involved. From the sub-contractors (Paragon, Wicked Mud) employed to the way the house security was maintained we are a more than satisfied customer.
Pivotal too has been the work specifically of John and Kade. They have both been thoroughly helpful, professional and knowledgeable. Kade, as project manager has been wonderful to work with. We could not have asked for more from them.”"

"“The aim we had for the renovation/extension to our 1920’s bungalow was that, when we came home each evening, we would walk through the door and smile. John Garlick Builders have done just that for us. Kade and his team understood what we wanted and worked hard to do produce it. Their ongoing suggestions and advice gave an outcome way ahead of what we had expected. The process was very collaborative, with frequent discussions and options, and any issues that arose (as they do when working on older buildings), were invariably accompanied with a proposed solution. The standard of his own tradesmen (and those of his sub-contractors,) was very high and we appreciated their attention to the fine details, that make all the difference to the finished product. Despite adding extra work to the original scope, John Garlick Builders pulled out all the stops to ensure we were still able to get back into our house on the original programmed date.

Thank you again to John, Kade and all the team.”"
