What Our Happy Clients Say
"Reduced Energy Costs through Quality"
My wife and I have engaged James and the Hazelwood Homes team a number of times and they are excellent to deal with. They delivered on time as scheduled; however what we love most is the reduced energy costs we now have through good design and quality workmanship.
"Amazing Renovation Under Unrealistic Timeframe"
James renovated our house in Rye. He did an amazing job. We have him an unrealistic time frame to build as we were pregnant, and he did in time! The house is like a brand new house. There’s not much of the old house we kept which would have been challenging for his team. We now have the most beautiful 2 story weatherboard house and we could not be happier. They finished in time for us to move in, get settled and have our baby in our new house. Highly recommended by us 🙂
"Highly Recommend James and Team"
Working with James and the Hazelwood team was such a pleasure. He would answer any questions and concerns I had straight away and resolve all issues promptly. The small details in the house from the corking to the hand rails were all done to the highest quality. James had a very difficult time frame to complete the job and we were in by Christmas just as promised. I couldn’t recommend James and his team more highly!
"Builders with Actual Integrity"
We've used James and his team many times over the years to renovate our federation home. James and the team have replaced our roof, gutted and renovated our bathrooms and stumped and rebuilt our wraparound veranda. Their work is always excellent and they're a pleasure to deal with. Builders with actual integrity. I've had no hesitation in recommending James and the team to others over the years - I always know people will come away happy.
"Highly Recommended Building Company"
We cannot recommend James and his team highly enough. They are approachable, professional, friendly and build homes of the highest quality, setting the standard for other builders. We have used Hazelwood Homes time and time again over the years and have recommended them to all of our family and friends who would all say the same! One of the best guys going around with a phenomenal team, running an impeccable building company. Thanks Hazelwood Homes
