In April of 2013 we moved into our new home at Heffley Lake, built on time and on budget by Meranti. As well as the team’s technical building expertise and excellent building construction supervision, this achievement was due in large to Darcy’s understanding of budgets and persistence in keeping to the agreed upon figures. Further, the team was always available to us and never made us feel that any concern or inquiry was frivolous or unwelcome.
We selected Meranti as our builder partly based on the detailed thoroughness of the estimates provided prior to the build. Meranti’s transparency in keeping owners informed, and the invoicing system, played a huge role in relieving the stress of the build. His ability to keep to the budget became increasingly evident in the course of the build and did much to alleviate the anxiety that we as owners might feel during the process. In addition, any work or materials that came in over the estimate was carefully researched and when additional costs were justified, Darcy was very careful to keep us informed. As a result we had additional finishing completed during the build, confident that the budget would hold true.
We have recommended Meranti to friends who are considering building and know they will do a great job.
