We signed a contract with Risen Developments to demolish & rebuild the front half of our home. We are very happy with the resulting transformation, designed by architect Mr Tom Cox, overseen and built by Risen Developments. We found the team to be very diligent, prompt & professional. They were always helpful & polite, and the entire project was completed to our satisfaction, within the promised time line & as close to the quoted price as possible. Any problems that cropped up were attended to without delay. We would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone considering work on their property.

This is to thank you for the wonderful work your team has done on our house. We are thrilled with the outcome, and have really appreciated the way you have done the whole job. You were the only builder who quoted, that took the time to speak to us to understand the job, and we had a lot more confidence in the quote as a result. You started on time, and finished on time and all the way through, respected the fact that we were living on the premises with two very small children. We couldn't believe it when you cleaned up every day. You kept to the project schedule even when the bath was stuck on the wharf for days and the wrong floorboards were delivered. You fixed the problems we raised (and there were not many) promptly and without arguing, and you responded to the changes in design that happened along the way. We also really liked the team you brought in to work with you — they were competent, friendly and committed to doing a quality job. And this is what you all produced — a beautiful house that is lovely to live in and an experience that we can look back on with pleasure. Thank you all so much.

We would very highly recommend Risen Developments Pty Ltd. Their work was of good quality. He & his team were always polite and nothing was too much trouble. The things that I like most about Risen was that they always communicated with me and kept me informed on what was scheduled for each week's work. His team finished the job within the allocated time frame and met with all council regulations. My husband & I would be happy to use Risen Developments Pty Ltd for any building work in the future. Thanks for the work Craig.

We had decided to renovate our home & were concerned about how to contract a reliable builder. We saw an ad for Craig Preston & thought we would give him a go. We went no further. He prepared a very professional quote & discussed it with us in thorough detail. We just had a ‘gut feeling” that he would do a good job. He & his team were friendly, approachable & worked hard. In fact, they finished ahead of schedule. Craig was very easy to talk to & was always willing to compromise & work with us. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any job.
