We first used Dean and his team to replace an old front deck on our house and were very satisified with the result. His quote was reasonable and realistic and he was quick to give us tips on how to save money by doing certain parts ourselves without cutting corners. His team were always courteous to both of us and they would always double check with us if input was needed. Even when we had a few concerns or issues about the build, Dean was quick to adjust his plan and materials to suit our expectations. We have since engaged his team to place a large window into one side of our house in the diningroom, an excellent job that has given us a mesmerising view, and to replace a back stairs and landing which now is very safe and looks great. Because of this consistent work and the attention to detail (including a thoughtful thank you gift pack dropped off at the end of the last build which was a nice surprise) we are now considering McDonald and Son for a full bathroom renovation. Happy to recommend Dean and the team to others!
McDonald & Son builders did an excellent job on our major extension which included two bedrooms a bathroom and decking. We are on a very difficult site and most of the builders that came to quote either wouldn’t take the job on or quoted an exorbitant price. The completed job is excellent with the team ensuring they matched both the internal and external finishes to the rest of the house – it is a very professional job. The finished product is something we are very proud of and we are very happy that we chose McDonald and Son Builders. They were incredibly reliable and courteous throughout the project. We have no hesitation in recommending Dean and his team for any building project and have even had them back for a couple of smaller projects – each of these finished with the same attention to detail.
Dean, a special thank you for all your hard work and organisation – the house looks so much better than I could have believed possible and it’s also reassuring to know that you have made it more stable and secure. Your “can do” attitude was so refreshing and your attention to detail speaks for itself. I’ll remember to thank my nephew and niece for recommending you, I’m so glad they did.
We are so grateful to McDonald and Son Builders for the work that was performed to our Retaining Wall, Fence and Pergola maintenance. The constant communication and professionalism that Dean and his team showed was second to none. We were so impressed with the final result that we recommended them to family members. This resulted in McDonald and Son Builders being awarded the contract to fully restore our Grandfather’s house who was seriously affected by the Brisbane floods in 2011.
McDonald and Son Builders were recommended to us by our good friends in 2010. After meeting Dean and getting the quote, we contracted the crew to build a back patio for us. Unfortunately our house went under in the January 2011 floods. Dean rang us to offer help and actually sent around one of his apprentices to spend a whole day helping us rip out the inside of the house (poor guy – sorry DJ!). After we recovered, we were able to get Dean and the crew back to finally build the patio and a portico out the front. We were very happy with the whole process, from the very competitive quote to the finished product. They worked ridiculously hard in horrid conditions, and didn’t complain when all I had to offer were some measly icypoles! Dean and the crew are precise, flexible, and accommodating. They made sure we were happy every step of the way. They also cleaned up the site at the end of every day and kept us informed of the schedule. We’ve already recommended McDonald and Son builders to two of our friends, who have both contracted them to do the job. All of our future building projects will be done by McDonald and Son Builders without a doubt. No need to bother ringing around anymore. We definitely recommend them to you.
I first employed McDonald and Son Builders to do repairs on my veranda. Found Dean’s quote to be fair and extremely honest. Workmanship was carried out to the highest quality they went well and beyond the work requested. I was very impressed as they found other problems that I did not know of and they fixed them with no charge. They cared for my house and brought it back to it’s original condition. I would highly recommend McDonald and Son Builders and use this company again and again.
