Our Client Testimonials

“I had the privilege of meeting Jay when he came to inspect my house for a suspected 'leaky home' (horror of horrors).

The unknowns of what Jay was to find from room to room … and being given advice of what work should be undertaken – (which was total removal of exterior of whole house, rotten wood
replaced, new windows fitted and structure prepared within new compliance regulations for plastering.) Jay undertook this work when many would have run a mile.

I knew I could go off the property to work each day leaving Jay to take care of my house …. Apart from his own very professional workmanship, he took it upon himself to be 'Project Manager' and
had all other tradesmen on site when needed. A very hugely stressful and emotional time, but Jay was my rock through the process. It goes without saying that I have no hesitation in recommending Jay for any building work - from structural to refined interior craftsmanship.”

“When considering our options for building our new house we talked extensively with both building companies and independent builders before deciding on engaging Jay and the team at Cambridge Building Services. Jay gave us the reassurance that we could be as involved as we wanted to be - either hands on or leave the project management up to him. With both of us working in busy jobs we chose the latter with Jay running the show but we always felt well informed and knew exactly where things were at. We were always welcome on site and we regularly visited to see how things were progressing. The guys - both CBS crew and all subbies - were always great to deal with with and left us with the feeling that our money was being well spent. We were able to engage directly with the subcontractors if we wanted to and they were happy to deal directly with us if needed.

In the early stages one thing we really appreciated were Jays suggestions on how we could cut costs, offering alternate product suggestions etc... This gave us the option to either upgrade or downgrade in areas depending on our priorities. We also really appreciated Jay's attention to detail and this gave us the confidence that we were getting a quality build. If any building materials or the finish of any work was not up to standard then Jay was sorting it, and these could be things that we probably wouldn't even have noticed which speaks volumes about his
integrity and professionalism. If we did notice something out of place then we could raise this with Jay without any issues and know that it would be sorted.

On the whole a relatively pain-free building process resulting in a high-quality build that we are very happy with!”

“Deciding on Jay was the easy part. I knew there were interesting set out challenges... irregular shapes, unconventional arrangements of blocks; but the understanding and cooperation
he had with us throughout was second to none... They would talk through the difficult details with Kevin and we knew they would get it right. That attention to detail, the willingness to get it absolutely right, was always important to us”

“We would wholeheartedly recommend Cambridge Building Ltd to anyone considering building a new home. The whole process was seamless and Jay's fastidious nature instilled confidence at every step. We are thoroughly happy with the end product and wouldn't change a thing. Having previously built with a large building company we would never go back as the personalised service we received was outstanding. Thanks to Jay and his team.”

“Thank you for doing such an fantastic job on the final stage of the reno; the deck looks amazing and we have had so many people comment on it, they can't believe how good it looks. Kyle (architect) rung to complement us and stated that whatever fence we wanted he was more than happy to go along with our choice; I think he was blown away by how the downstairs and deck came up and perhaps thought we could be trusted with the design of the fence!”
