We had some reasonably complex excavation done which included retaining walls and drainage. Colin talked to us at length before providing a detailed and accurate quote. The work was done very efficiently, to our specifications and was of a high quality. Colin made sure we always knew what was going on and answered any questions accurately and courteously. We were very pleased with the work done and would recommend him to anyone.
I wanted a backyard makeover for my Villa. Several Quotes were obtained but Colin won the job, not because he was the cheapest but because of the professional way in which he conducted himself. He listened to what I wanted including budget, He made suggestions and the reasons why and came up with exactly what I needed. Rare for a trades person to call you if they are running late and even rarer for them to turn up on the day they say at the allocated time. Colin and his team of masterful tradespeople did a fantastic job and I keep admiring the transformation done by this professional band of tradespeople. Cleaned up afterwards as well which was a bonus and no hidden extra costs. I am one very very happy customer. Family and friends say I now have a “Wow” factor backyard. Thanks Colin.
We recently built in Stonecutters Ridge estate at Colebee, and Colin’s signs were plastered around the neighbourhood. When asking the neighbours their thoughts on his work, we received nothing but positive comments, so we contacted Colin to provide us with a quote. We did get quite a few people to quote, as we were working to a fairly specific budget. But even though others were cheaper, we kept coming back to Colin because he offered us a level of confidence and integrity that was missing from all the others. His knowledge of the Australian Standards and local council regulations is exceptional, and his ability to turn a vision into a reality is fantastic. Colin has done quite a bit of work for us, and it’s still going. He’s built a block retaining wall, poured a driveway, installed irrigation and turf, and will be back to do more work in our front yard, and also complete the landscaping around our pool when the time comes. Like all the other reviews say, he is a man of his word. He works long hours, over and above any other tradesperson I’ve come across (and there’s been a few!). He runs the show, and is always onsite, so knows exactly what is going on at all times. His attention to detail is fantastic – he is meticulous and a perfectionist. The old saying goes “you get what you pay for”. Colin from Active Industries is worth every cent!
