We commissioned Chris Picone (Build Strut) to undertake some repair and renovation work on our home late last year and were very happy with his quality of workmanship, communication and the overall process.
The project involved some minor repairs and paintwork to existing balconies, demolition of an old external timber pergola and construction of a new outdoor covered patio, as well as non- structural alterations and fit out of the laundry and service area inside. Internal work included new wall and ceiling linings, door openings, cupboards and shelving.
Chris's attention to detail, problem solving and time management was exemplary. Based on our experience we have no hesitation in recommending Chris for similar work and we would contact Chris again if we need further building work to be undertaken.
Chris has been working on my new home in Alfred Cove. It is an architectural design using SIP panels that requires a skill set that requires the builder to solve problems on a daily basis.
Chris has the ability to work with a large number of materials and shows precise workmanship.
He has taken over the build from the original builder who went into liquidation and has shown great ingenuity and skill to come up with solutions to fix the mess left by the previous builder.
I would recommend Chris to anyone wanting a builder.
Chris has helped me make our house feel more like a home with a few different jobs from wall removals, plastering, new doorways and doors so it is more open plan and functional. He is considerate, trusting and pays attention to detail which sets my mind to ease managing family and work amongst renovations.
It's rare to find great workmanship at an affordable price these days. However, Chris proved just that at our house. He did a fantastic job at our Victorian style cottage with a job others would be afraid to touch.
He shows confidence in his craft, reliable and a good problem solver. The end product had us completely satisfied. Highly recommended.
We recently engaged Build Strut to make some renovations and adaptions to a house that we purchased in Cooloongup W.A.
Initially Chris and Rick joined us at the newly purchased property as we went through our wish list, each offered constructive ideas on how this would be achieved and a time-line for each job was planned.
Due to my personal mobility issues the works were directed to improved access and ease of getting around the house on my small mobility scooter.
Being located in Canberra we relied completely on the organization and initiative shown by Rick and Chris in selecting expert tradesmen to complete the plumbing, tiling and gas fitting requirements as the kitchen installation progressed.
The jobs included a new cover to extend the carport, resurfacing the patio floor, removing the kitchen to bare walls and installing new cupboards and appliances, removing existing carpet from bedrooms and passage and replacing with wooden floorboards and finally building new bathroom vanity and installing a new toilet.
Chris provided detailed quotes for each job individually allowing us to discuss and take on board his recommendations. All jobs were completed to a high standard, with Chris going above and beyond with his detail and professional finish on new door frames and all carpentry work.
Chris made suggestions throughout the construction phases always with the budget in mind while keeping us up to date with photos and hand drawn plans as the works progressed.
With Richard's keen supervision of the project and Chris's overall exemplary workmanship we were more than pleased when we returned to Rockingham to view the completed improvements.
The site was cleaned with all rubbish removed, the finish on every facet was first class, we highly recommend this team for your building project.
Totally recommend Build Strut. Chris did a truly professional job to resolve our roofing problems - above and beyond what was expected and at no extra cost.
Without a doubt we will be calling on his services again.
