Testimonials

 

"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!"

"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."

"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"

"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."

"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."

"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

"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."

"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 womwn 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."

"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 becuase of unavoidable delays he'd work overtime and on the weekends to amke 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."

"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."
