"We decided to go with HMA because of Paul and Lauren's responsiveness and helpfulness with our initial enquiries from the outset. We used HMA's Design and Construct Service and Interior Design Service, which took care of everything from early conceptual designs through to the actual build, as well as help with deciding wall and floor finishes, fittings and fixtures, plus too many other things to mention. One new baby and a pandemic later, we have a beautifully renovated home to raise our family in. It was not an easy build for HMA, given that we are on a steeply sloping site with limited parking and no side access, but Paul and his team approached the work with professionalism and good humour. Lauren's moodboards, flythroughs, and interior fitting and fixture selections were so helpful with getting the place looking great, and took so much of the stress of decision-making off our shoulders. We would definitely recommend HMA for anyone looking to take on a renovation project."

Steven and Jodi, Annandale



"We had planned to renovate the back portion of our home, and had difficulty finding someone who understood our vision. Then we found Paul Byrne and his team of superstars. Every aspect was a joy and the end result was even better than we had dreamed. Each person who entered our home was not only a delight but their workmanship is outstanding. Paul was constantly in contact with us, honest and straightforward with us, especially when the odd unexpected problem appeared - the curse of a house built in 1898! We are over the moon with our new home.

Lauren came, at our request, and provided fabulous interior ideas, all of which we went with. Gorgeous woman with a great eye for detail and understood what our ideas were.

We have no hesitation in recommending Paul and Lauren Byrne and their whole HMA team, and do say so, with pleasure.

Alexis and Robyn, Sydenham


"Paul and Lauren were recommended to me by friends who had used their services in the past. This recommendation meant I had confidence that Paul, Lauren and the HMA team would deliver. And they did not disappoint. The finished product is fantastic. I used their design, construct and interior design services. The three disciplines were coordinated to deliver a high-quality outcome. From the outset, the HMA team listened to my needs and incorporated these in the design and construction. Often these needs would require negotiation on possibility, cost and alternatives. Paul and Lauren always negotiated these outcomes with respect, and I felt that the decisions made, and the outcomes achieved, were the best outcomes with all things considered. I highly recommend HMA to deliver a superior product which will exceed your expectations."

Sean, Annandale 

"Working with Paul, Lauren and their team of experienced builders and craftsman made our full scale renovation ridiculously easy and has left us with an amazing family home which is so much more than we could have ever thought possible.

The project came in on budget, time thanks to Paul’s project management skills. Whilst there were the normal issues along the way with suppliers or unexpected finds when we opened the house up, what was really refreshing working with Paul, was the advice and options he provided. Based off past experience and proven solutions, it really allowed us to make informed decisions quickly. Having Paul & team leading the work with the engineers, draftsman, certifiers to ensure all approvals were in place for us, turned out to be a time and cost saving investment that set up the build.

Lauren’s Interior design skills saved many arguments as she collated all our design ideas and distilled them down to one consistent theme that suited our tastes and lifestyle.  Within that one theme she still provided 2-3 options for key items like colours, tiles and lights as we went through the build to ensure any changes blended into the look of the house and that we were happy with the end result.

I rarely make recommendations, but given the finished product, the solid advice and peace of mind throughout the process, I would strongly recommend anyone to reach out to Paul & Lauren for any renovations they are planning to do."

Sonia, Petersham




" We couldn’t be more pleased with our home HMA built for us. We have been living in our new home now for almost a year now, and as we reflect on the process (and hear of horror stories from friends and their builders) we are so thrilled to have partnered with HMA.

We engaged HMA from the beginning, working with Suzanne and Lauren to conceptualise our dream home. Suzanne was amazing during the whole design and council planning process.

Lauren was instrumental from the start with choosing all fittings, fixtures and colours saving us so much time, effort and money, and the result is a home which is functional and looks amazing.

The building process lead by Paul and his team was another great experience. Paul was upfront with all costs and variations, and we always valued his opinion and experience. I lost track of the number of times I asked Paul “What would you do if it were your place…”. The level of quality and attention to detail is second to none. Part way through the build we decided to install a pool and studio, and Paul took this in his stride, arranging the difficult excavation and coordinating all this around the house rebuild and challenging neighbours. We had Paul manage the pool contractors and again we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Even when issues came up, Paul was very upfront and fixed things (which anyone else would have not bothered to fix) often at his own expense.  

Our home was delivered on budget and on time, despite battling the difficult weather and other factors outside their control.

Thank you again for the home you designed and built for us. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have worked with you. Unfortunately, you built us our dream home so it's unlikely we get to experience the whole building process again, but if we do, you will be our first call.

Andrew and Jennifer, Maroubra 


"We have no hesitation in recommending Home Mend Australia. Building during a lockdown, with an industry shutdown as well as labour and timber shortages, not to mention product delays, could very easily have turned into a disaster but thanks to Paul, Lauren and their fabulous team we had minimal stress. We feel like one of the lucky ones. They did everything they could to keep us on track and we’re eternally grateful to have entrusted them with our extension. Having an in-house designer saved us time and money; Lauren was so patient with indecisive first-timers. We’re so happy with the final result - thank you!"

 Iona and Peter, Rosehill


 "Paul, Lauren and their team of super tradies are simply the best. We used HMA's Design and Construct Service and Interior Design Service which took everything from design stage to delivery. No problem was ever too much for Paul and Lauren to handle. Their eye for detail, advice and expertise was spot on every time and we are thrilled with the result. Highly recommend."

Rachel and Brett, Stanmore




"We engaged HMA from the very beginning of our home renovation project, using them from the preliminary process and design stage, to the submission of plans to council and all the way through construction to completion. It provided such consistency and peace of mind to have Paul, Lauren and their team oversee every step of the process. We are incredibly thrilled with the result. They have taken our tired weatherboard cottage and made her into a beautiful, comfortable home all the while maintaining her original charm and character. The workmanship of the HMA team of trades is fantastic and they are all a pleasure to have on site. Thank you Paul, Lauren and all the team at HMA. We love our new look home."

Charlotte and Mark, Lindfield

"Paul Byrne, a rare find. At a time when other builders had been taking advantage of the glut of work available, I heard first hand stories about many builders being dishonest, charging a lot of below par workmanship. As a single woman undertaking major renovations, I was very lucky to have hired HMA for the total gutting and internal renovation of my apartment. I found Paul Byrne to be very honorable, reliable, honest, and he had an easy, calm and patient temperament. Paul was quite the opposite of the norm, his fees were extremely fair and reasonable, and he found the best prices for materials and shared this on. He always looked after my best interests/his client. Suppliers I dealt with also spoke highly of Paul. He is very pedantic about details and was very cooperative in fulfilling my requirements in a timely manner. Paul is an excellent builder with a great disposition and went the extra mile throughout the project. I recommend HMA highly and was definitely one of the lucky ones." 

Liliane, Bronte

"Paul and his fabulous team worked on a major renovation of our home, which required us to move out for a number of months. Paul is extremely easy to work with. He was responsive, was always looking for the best and most cost-effective option, worked well with our architect and made his own creative suggestions. Most importantly he did what he said he was going to do, at the time he said he'd do it. If things were behind because of unavoidable delays he'd work overtime and on the weekends to make sure our home was ready to move back into. As with any building, there are sometimes small defects that arise some months or even years after the build. When this happened, a phone call to Paul saw him attend our house within days, and fix the problem immediately - no questions asked. I would use him again without any hesitation and have recommended him to many friends."

Lyn, Erskineville

"Paul and his team were a pleasure to deal with when we extended the back of our terrace in Paddington. They demolished part of the rear, built the extension and landscaped the garden with new sandstone pavers and planter bed walls. The project was completed on time and almost to budget (Owner's last minute changes). I can honestly say that at no time did we have any difficult conversations with Paul or any of his team. They were fun to work with. Our neighbours were very complimentary about the way they minimised noise and respected their access to their properties when building materials were being delivered. A number of our friends have used Paul and all have the same high regard for his professionalism."

Ross, Paddington

"Paul, I wanted to thank you for building our new home!  It was exactly what I had pictured it to be and we couldn’t be happier with the results.  I had heard so many horror stories about reno’s in our area, about builders themselves and their crew.  I can honestly say its been a great experience for us.  Thanks for your patience along the way, and your guidance to ensure we did things the right way.  Your attention to detail in not just the work, but the bills and invoicing has been amazing. I couldn’t say enough good things about the guys working for you.  They always had a great attitude, always helpful and professional, and just so lovely! Thank you!"                                 

Rebecca and Charles, Erskineville


"Paul, I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with you and your crew. From the moment we started work on our kitchen and bathroom renovation there was not a hitch. The work went smoothly, promptly, neatly and cleanly. When there were problems that were unforeseen with the house, you dealt with them as they arose to a good conclusion. All our dealings were done in a business-like manner and I was well pleased. I was so pleased that I asked you to build another area for me outside. This time a driveway and parking areas. This too went well and again with a great crew of workers. As in any build, not everything goes smoothly, and when this happened with our cement pour and concrete cuts, you were more than willing to take it up with the contractor. And in fact, I know some things came out of your pocket. I also appreciate the support and advice you have given me, as my husband could not participate in the decision making. I would be happy to work with you again anytime."

Evi, Coogee



"Paul and his team undertook our renovation of a heritage listed Victorian terrace house and we are extremely happy and pleased with the result. Paul was easy to communicate with; he kept us up to date with progress, was transparent with costs and always gave an honest and professional opinion on decisions made. Due to the size of the build we needed to move out and we felt that Paul was mindful and considerate of the time pressure. As our house is so old, a few things did not go to plan however Paul was able to problem solve and find other solutions. The quality of workmanship from Paul and his team is outstanding and we would not hesitate to recommend HMA."

Jason and Jeanette, Erskineville


"Hello Sunshine" is exactly how I feel to move home to my amazing new home! Words don't really express how grateful I am to have met you Paul and "thank you" just doesn't seem enough. Your workmanship, your attention to detail, your workers and trades are all superb. Most of all I personally have enjoyed our honest communication, our problem solving together and can honestly say you have made the whole build process a pleasant one. James and I are eternally grateful and will continue to recommend you to everyone we meet. I know our paths will cross again one day. One thousand thank you's!

Tamara and James, Marrickville



"We've had four houses renovated, about one every ten years: a Federation in Canberra and three Victorian terraces in Sydney, the latest with Paul. We've had really good builders but Paul is the best, outstanding on all counts: a delight to work with, helpful and accommodating, cost-conscious for you the client without cutting corners, and one hundred percent reliable. Working with him was worry-free, because he is scrupulous about costs and charges, explains and keeps you informed about what's happening and what comes next, and is meticulous about quality and detail. He and his team are exceptionally good (and good-humoured) in working around you if you are living in the house through a partial renovation or extension. Its a great satisfaction to recommend him without reservation."

Steve and Gay, Surry Hills



 "Paul has been our builder on several projects and we've found him to be trustworthy, efficient and considerate. He is a very knowledgeable and 'hands-on' master builder with an excellent team who really know their stuff. They clean up well and are careful not to leave any mess or upset our neighbours in any way. We have always used Paul on a cost-plus basis, which works out cheaper and better if you have an honest, reliable builder who you can trust not to waste time or money. Paul is definitely all of those things."

Christine and Martin, Centennial Park and Stanmore



"I have contracted Paul Byrne from HMA many times for work related to my interior design business as well as my own home. I am always pleased to work with Paul, he is not only thorough but hard working, honest and genuinely keen to save money where he can. Paul will also make sure things are done to my aesthetic, not just take the easiest solution. The end result is always fantastic. I would highly recommend Paul and his team for your project."

Rennel, Vaucluse

"We have had several projects constructed by HMA. The most recent, our garage studio, was built Nov 2016-Jul 2017. We discovered Paul through 'word of mouth' from friends in our street. His work is so good that he is always busy and doesn't need to advertise. We found that Paul was easy to work with, had a thorough understanding of the building code, his pricing and quotations for any variations were 'spot on', and he has a professional building team who were easy to get along with. His attention to detail ensured that out studio was completed to our satisfaction."

Dick and Sandy, Newtown



"In any building project obstacles crop up. It's quite simply impossible to anticipate everything. That's when you need a builder who will work with you to resolve those obstacles. You need someone you trust, who raises issues as, or before, they happen and who happily explains what needs to be done in a way you understand. Paul Byrne is that builder"                                          

Annie, Surry Hills, Architect and past client




"Paul is the best builder you will ever find. He is reliable and honest and produces the best work."
