Project: Extensive renovations to an inner city terrace house including an upstairs bathroom, modification of an external laundry to an internal laundry with bathroom, a full kitchen renovation plus a complete rebuild of the heritage house’s façade.
“Canstruct were professional from the start. They showed great attention to detail, offered advice and options and worked with us in partnership to achieve our goals. We handled the DA process but Canstruct made it easy with the support provided. They started on time, were willing to change as we progressed and still completed on time. Our federation facade is still the talk of the area, and while heritage we managed to achieve a modern look that met council requirements.” Andre, Chippendale
Project: A series of jobs over a 3 year period covering complete bathroom, kitchen and ensuite renovations, installation of bi-fold doors, rear yard excavation, structural wall removal and a roller door installation.
“Fantastic service from Jason, a friendly and personable guy. Always on time, always open about where the process as up to and fantastic access to top-notch tradies like electricians, plumbers, tilers, plasterers, roofers and more. I always felt part of the process, got to have my say and made the final decision with helpful advice around design, construction and standards. Cannot recommend highly enough.” Brenden, Forest Lodge
Project: A top to bottom upgrade of a three level terrace house on Birchgrove Oval including a major external laundry conversion into an artist garden studio plus excellent referrals for an electrical upgrade, new roof guttering and landscaping of the back garden.
“We have lived in Balmain since 1976 and recently rented our house and down-sized to East Balmain. Over the years we have done five major sets of renovation on our two houses in Balmain and Birchgrove. We have learned a lot about working with architects, assessing builders’ quotes and just how priceless it is to get someone like Jason who gives accurate quotes, provides an excellent standard of work, is completely trustworthy and gets the job done as quickly as possible. Jason sourced and installed reproduction French doors for a new doorway from the kitchen to the veranda which he ensured perfectly matched two existing 1884 doors in the adjacent lounge room. He also completed a major renovation and conversion of our outside laundry to a beautifully lined and weatherproof artist’s garden studio. Jason hid the washing machine, dryer and heritage tubs behind new panelled doors and a matching fully lined ceiling. He also re-roofed and waterproofed the studio with an enlarged skylight. Jason’s superb services have ensured our house looks magnificent and remains in perfect working order which underpinned the premium rental we achieved.” Cathy and Geoff, Birchgrove
Project: A first floor rear extension of an old terrace house to lock up which included updating the existing roof, creating an external modern feel and an internal feature brick wall. Also guided the owner through the internal fit out.
“As well as top quality work Jason also offered quality service and advice, even after his part of the job was complete. We hired Canstruct to add another story to our terrace house, just to lock up, and then I handled the inside. Not only was Jason’s work superb in blending a modern exterior with an older terrace he was also happy to offer advice and assistance as I went about finishing the inside rooms. Knowledgeable, easy to work with and his regular updates mean you always know how the job is progressing.” Beau, Surry Hills
Project: Installation of a bi-fold door to create a spacious, open area from the back room to the garden which also included the construction of a hallway and back deck. Other jobs involved the replacement of a rotting window, fitting of a sliding door and repairing the flashing to the neighbour’s house on the roof.
“There used to be just a small window overlooking the backyard, Jason’s work has opened up the back of the house. We love the deck as it’s really made our under utilised back yard into an entertainment space. Jason communicated with us the whole time and issues that arose during the build were easily solved. Jason listened to our ideas and then gave us his thoughts, opinions and provided us with some really good suggestions to achieve the best results. If we do anything more to the house we will call Jason. I have already recommended him to a friend!” Fiona, Camperdown
