Here's what our clients are saying about us.

"We had heard good things about Duncan Taylor Builders prior to starting our new home and we asked our architect to include them in the tender process. Duncan's price was competitive but more importantly for us Duncan's team, especially the onsite Forman & tradesmen, took a proactive role advising us of any conflicts with design or materials so that the issues that invariably arise in a project such as this could be dealt with in a timely way. We have a home that is beautiful, functional and well built. Thanks Duncan and all the team at Duncan Taylor Builders."

 - Ross & Bev Christoffersen.

"We engaged DTB to build the first stage of our home at Kirwee in 1999. From the first meeting, Duncan had a real empathy for what we were seeking to achieve in the project, and to meet the aspirations of the architect, David Childs. We were living overseas at the time and DTB completed the first stage of the home in conjunction with the architect as project manager. I was very impressed with the team's attention to detail and their ability to complete the job while we were away. In particular Duncan visited the site frequently. Four years later when completing the final stage of the home, we again engaged DTB and we have been pleased with the overall result. Duncan can always find a practical solution to any problems or changes that were necessary as the project developed. DTB's attention to detail, strong project management and frequent communication with us were the main areas that I was impressed with. The team were all good to have around and responded quickly to any questions we had or changes we wanted to make. I would recommend DTB to anyone seeking to create a high quality family home that they will be able to enjoy for a long time."

"It was easy to build with them. They really took the stress out of the whole thing, nothing was a problem. They were all very professional, gave us all the options and talked us through everything."

"Dalman Architecture put our extensive renovations out to tender and while Duncan Taylor weren't the lowest, they came highly recommended. It was a major project _ we had a 500sqm house built in the 1970s and we were gutting a quarter of it back to the floor slab. Naturally we encountered a few challenges, such as when all the structural steel in the country was in limited supply for four months because of the filming of King Kong, but Duncan Taylor helped us through it and solved a number of problems for us. They were good guys who communicated well and we continue to keep in touch with them.''

"We were building a 700sqm hill property which involved a lot of architectural work. The foreman on the job made sure anything we wanted we got and didn't accept anything that wasn't up to standard. So when we had another small job to do, we didn't even ask them to quote, because we had the confidence in them that the job would be done in a professional manner."

I do want to place on record my deep and sincere appreciation for the way you and your company have executed the plans for alterations. In particular I want to record my admiration and gratitude to James for his professionalism, courtesy, attention to detail and his consideration to me the owner.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for completing the project to such a high standard and within such time constraints. We appreciate that at times you were required to work in with numerous contractors and we thank you for having done this with a minimum of fuss thus making the whole project from our point of view stress free."

We would both like you to know how immensely pleased we are with the whole process and building. We have heard nightmare tales of some others problems with building a house. The only reason we are not planning to build again is that we are so content with our first effort.

Duncan Taylor Builders Ltd was head contractor. The refurbishment was planned to take place in four stages over four weeks as we wanted to keep working during that time and Duncan Taylor worked around us to finish on time. We hope that when you do visit us you will enjoy the new facilities as much as we do."
