Client Testimonials

Hear it from our happy clients

  • We used Ponman Constructions in a renovation of an investment property. The cottage itself was a virtual knockdown. We could not be more thrilled with the result. Brad and his team’s attention to detail and innovative work throughout the process were amazing. Brad was always willing to engage with us in every step of the process. The result was better than we could have ever expected. The service Ponman Constructions provided did not end on completion of the project and Brad was always available with any information we required down the track. We would not hesitate to recommend or use...

  • When it comes to Ponman Constructions there isn't a single factor that draw us in, it was multiple. We were building our dream home and brad from the beginning showed determination, innovation and dedication.  Brad lived up to all the things he said he would, our home was completed in record time and by our deadline (our wedding which was to be held at our new home), the quality was never jeopardised (in fact was at a much better standard than ever expected). Brad went above and beyond, turning up on weekends and public holidays to complete tasks to ensure...

  • Hi Michelle It is very hard to pin this answer down to one thing as there were many aspects to the build that were all important. However i suppose the absolute professionalism that came with all aspects of the build. This started with first contact prior to the build until now. We felt from the beginning we were in safe hands, and kept informed each step of the way. We never had a moment of worry the whole way through as i knew Brad and his team had the experience to sort any issues out. This attitude was matched equally with...

  • In 2013 Ponman Constructions undertook significant renovations to our 30 year old home.  Brad made himself available in the pre contract stage at mutually convenient times and suggested many good ideas and tips.  He discussed costs and the timing of the work openly. I know from other people’s experience with other builders that doing major renovations can be a difficult experience.  For us the difficulty was only in the things that could not be avoided- such as the disruption due to the actual renovations, and not with the builders or the tradesmen. Brad and his team arrived as planned on...

  • I was referred to Ponman Constructions for my bathroom renovation from my neighbour who recently used Ponman Constructions for their home renovation.  I was impressed with the work I had seen at my neighbours home, it was good to be able to see the quality of the workmanship. The thing that stands out for me about Ponman Constructions is the detail, Brad is very good with detail and he likes to make sure that, it’s like he is doing it for his own house, so he wants to make it perfect, tries his best to make the detail that he...

  • The quality of the building and the workmanship from Ponman Constructions  was outstanding.  The process was really really good, we really enjoyed the building process. Brads communication was very good, he kept us in touch all of the time with what was happening and he explained everything, he is actually quite creative, he just comes up with these ideas and tells the boys to build them, theres no plan or anything.  They were prompt and they just kept at their work and getting it done, it was a good experience, there was nothing bad about it that’s for sure, we’re...

  • Ponman Constructions undertook the project of “refurb-ing” my home, bringing it back to the standard I am happy with and touching up the signs of ageing on the home.  Brad and his team were able to maintain the integrity of the home to continue its original state, maintaining the quality of the existing building Working with Ponman Constructions you deal with who you deal with, with other building companies you often have multiple points of contact.  This single point of contact during the building process decreases the opportunity for communication breakdowns and delays.  It is a real advantage opposed to...

  • The best thing about Ponman Constructions was that the efficiency of the build, the 14 weeks that it took to complete a total interior and exterior renovation of my old beach cottage, and of course the quality was there, but the efficiency is the thing.  That’s what you need otherwise you lose momentum and often the quality drops too if you don’t have that efficiency.  Everybody in the street commented on the way Brad ran the site, they can see it wasn’t going to go off track. It really helps to be around during the decision-making process, and I feel...
