Mike Wickens was recommended to me by a friend after he had completed an extensive renovation for him, he came highly recommended by this person.
My wife and I were looking at buying a home that we had suspicions was a leaky home, Mike came and provided assistance with a building inspection and even assisted in the negotiation with the seller, he conducted himself in a very professional manner with his extensive building knowledge.
Mike helped us manage the re-build process, sub trades and provide advice and guidance through what was a very stressful time for us. During the house rebuild his workmanship was faultless; the finishing detail was completed to a very high standard and we are very happy with the end result.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike to anyone for any future works.
Rata Road was an extensive 150m2 addition to the existing house. A key requirement was for the ‘new to tie into the old’.Read More
Penrose Street renovations included a new entrance, lounge, kitchen, dining, bathroom and laundry. Firstly a 1970’s addition was removed and replaced with a 60m2 building as per the original 1930’s style. Bell curved cedar shingles, timber sill separators, timber double glazed windows with bi-fold doors completed the project.
Manly Street involved re-roofing, re-cladding, new windows and a new extension after the prospective new owners had reason to believe it was a leaky home. We helped initially with a building inspection which became extensive renovations.Read More
The Complete Building Company extensively renovated and extended our home in 2011.
Our home predates the 1930s so we were looking for a building company with the skill and experience to ensure the renovation maintained the integrity of the home, and we certainly found that in the Complete Building Company run by Mike Wickens.
From the design stage right through to completion, Mike was committed to ensuring that the 150sq metre renovation and extension would complement and add to the heritage feel of our existing home. Renovating these types of homes is always expensive so sourcing the best value material without compromising the overall design was imperative. Mike worked alongside us helping us to find that material and added a wealth of knowledge and experience to the process. We felt like he was as committed as us to bringing the project in on budget.
On site his staff were a pleasure to deal with, never without a smile and friendly hello and very respectful of what it meant for us as a large family living amongst a building site.
We are delighted with the finished product, the workmanship is top quality, the project came in on budget and on time and they left us with a home that we are incredibly proud of.
For all these reasons I would highly recommend Mike and the whole team at The Complete Building Company.
We required extensive renovation of our front section including new drive way, new fences, landscaping etc.
We contacted six reputable builders and of them only TCBC provided a timely quote and TCBC were also the only company to provide a break down of the quote.
Mike was communicative from the design stage right through the complete building process offering suggestions to both improve on our ideas as well as ways to reduce costs.
TCBC arranged all the sub contractors as required and completely project managed everything which we thought was excellent service.
The build quality and workmanship was superb and everything was on time and on budget.
The final product looks outstanding and we’ve received a wealth of positive feedback from friends and family.
We have no hesitation recommending Mike and his team at TCBC. We will definitely use their services again in the future.
We engaged The Complete Building Company to undertake an extensive renovation project on our Raumati Beach property at the beginning of 2013 after several recommendations from our friends who had used Mike in the past.
From the beginning Mike was totally on board with our project and also suggested some things that we had never considered possible that helped achieve a result that was better than we had originally hoped.
He spent a considerable amount of time discussing our options before we even actually agreed to go ahead and made the time to come around to discuss any questions we had which took a lot of the anxiety out of the initial planning stages and gave us confidence that we could achieve a great end product.
Once the work started, Mike and Ollie were always here first thing in the morning and were hardworking, efficient & tidy and made sure they were as unobtrusive as possible which on an 8 week build was much appreciated.
The level of attention to detail from both the builders themselves and tradespeople brought in by Mike was first class and we could not fault any of the workmanship, any slight niggles were dealt with promptly and without question.
Mike was always striving to find ways to do things better without putting pressure on the budget, in fact throughout the build process he was actively finding ways to reduce cost and due to this careful management we were able to press ahead with a large deck that we had originally planned to do at a later date when we could afford it.
We have no hesitation in recommending The Complete Building Company to anyone, the whole experience was far less stressful and challenging than we had thought and we are blown away by the end product.
