We undertook a major renovation and extension of our c 1890 house in Hawthorn. We are delighted with the finished product in terms of the construction and the finishes.

While there are always some unexpected complications, we found the Edgebuild team to be always approachable, honest and pragmatic throughout the process. Edgebuild were extremely attentive in following up any issues or queries once we had moved in.

If we were ever to undertake another building job we would be more than happy to work with Edgebuild again.

We first met  Edgebuild in 2009, when we had an interest in building 2 homes on our block. One of which would be our first home. When we first met Michael, he was polite and very natural to talk to, and this has only continued in last 3 years of dealing with him and the Edgebuild staff.

Edgebuild have sat with us and guided us through multiple changes and updates and throughout the process have been very helpful and thoughtful. This included the patience that Edgebuild had as we eventually came to the decision to build 1 house on the block instead of 2. Even in the process of meeting with the different suppliers to discuss the various materials in the build, the suppliers themselves regularly spoke of Edgebuild’s quality of work and service. This was extremely reassuring as a first home buyer/builder, as we obviously were not aware of what to expect.

Edgebuild were not the cheapest, but that was not the biggest factor in our decision to go with Edgebuild for the building we are expecting to call our long-term home. After going through the process, the service and quality of the end result have been of greater value than anything we could have saved by going with a cheaper builder. The fact that they were always happy to help with any queries or concerns we had was always appreciated, and the time they took to sit and talk through the various stages of the build has been priceless. We have been even more impressed (9 months on), by the follow up after the completion of the project, as this is something we had not expected once the build was complete.

Obviously this has been our first home build, and hearing of the horror stories of our friends and in the media, we are glad that we are not one of them. We have been exceptionally surprised and impressed with the work Edgebuild has done, and not only the professionalism, but the passion for building homes, and the people that live in them, that Edgebuild have.

We would gladly recommend Edgebuild to any of our friends or family who are considering building, especially if they are looking for something that they would be happy and proud to live in for a very very long time.

The most impressive aspects of our experience with Edgebuild were as follows:

1. Edgebuild were the complete package when it came to doing an extension, from recommending the Architect in the early planning stages to then recommending and helping to coordinate the Landscape Architect at the end, the most impressive aspect of this was that we as clients new that Edgebuild cared about the customers overall process and not just the building section that they were responsible for, they definitely went above and beyond what we would have imagined.

2. Edgebuild were able to get on top of problems/issues that are regular occurrences in the complex building industry, unless a problem was totally out of their hands they were able to offer an immediate solution.

We would like to thank all of the EdgeBuild team.

When selecting a builder to create our new home, it was an easy decision to make.  Unlike other builders we approached, Edgebuild were clear and prompt when it came to communication and quotes. They were enthusiastic to take on our project without changing our plans and vision and really worked with us to create what ‘WE’ wanted.  EdgeBuild discussed our plans and made us feel at ease.  EdgeBuild were always patient even when we changed our minds along the way and always willing to offer advice which at times was invaluable.  Any issues that arose were solved quickly.

What could have been a difficult process was a relatively easy experience and enjoyable journey.  Living through our renovations (a period of 4 months), The Edgebuild team were always respectful and professional.  Not a day went by during the build that there was not someone on site or someone communicating with us.  Our project was also finished before the agreed date.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Edgebuild to anyone else considering renovating or building.  The support, guidance and fantastic team has delivered us a beautiful home.  Our neighbours and friends cannot believe that our home is the same house. There is nothing better than to pull up in our drive way now and smile.

Thank you Edgebuild,

When we found our home in Briar Hill one point of focus was the backyard; it would be perfect for a growing toddler.

The 1960’s blond brick offered many opportunities and needed some TLC.

Most of the maintenance required was in the outer areas.

Once meeting Mick Watts both of us knew he would be the builder we wanted to help us find the path in making this property our home. He made us feel comfortable and we felt assured our desired effect would be the result.

Mick offered some fantastic ideas and was available on our every call.

We were overwhelmed with the service provided and the constant flow of communication. It didn’t matter how many questions we posed, Mick was always patient and very willing to offer a solution.

We had what seemed over a hundred jobs to be completed and managed. Mick ran with all of it; alongside his team both onsite and in the office, they found no issue too big.

We’ve been in our new home now for about 3 years, and we’re still in awe of how great it all turned out. We love it!

10 units at 1133 Frankston Dandenong Rd, Carrum Downs Edgebuild Carrum Units

I am pleased to advise that Edgebuild constructed 10 units at the above address being a retirement village satisfactorily over a period of 5 months.

The contract was a fixed price contract which was met on time and on budget together with a limited amount of claimed extras.

I found Michael Watts to be professional and extremely easy to deal with.

Since completion he has attended promptly to any maintenance issues.

On the above basis I have no hesitation in recommending Edgebuild for any building project.

To Mick and the team at Edgebuild

As soon as we sat down around a table with you, we felt as ease. I knew then we had found the team that would build our new home. Your vision and ideas made it so easy. You and all your teams’ expertise, dedication & care are of the highest standards here in Melbourne. What you all put into our home was nothing short of brilliant.

It is now 3 years since we have moved into the place we now call home.

Another excellent factor that your company holds is the ability to follow up any query we have, no matter how small.

As you say Mick, “every home must have a wow factor” and I can safely say that ours certainly does. Thank you always.

Your very happy clients & now friends

We looked at many builders when we decided to transform our small, very ordinary home into something completely different. It wasn’t simply quality we were looking for, but someone who had the same vision as us, and who would put as much of themselves into the home as we were.

Michael and the team at Edgebuild were a perfect fit, and the result is testament to their attention to even the smallest detail. They seem to take genuine pride in every step of their work.

To call ours a renovation project doesn’t do the complexity and level of skill needed justice, and we are grateful to Edgebuild for creating such a beautiful home, admired (and envied) by all that enter it. And, to top it off, throughout the project they were and still are great to deal with – feeling more like friends than “our builders”.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Edgebuild to anyone who is interested in “creating” a new home rather than simply building.

We have just completed building our Edgebuild home on a 20 Acre property we attained 4 years ago at Nutfield. Upon purchasing

the land, we started to plan our “Dream Home” and engaged with Edgebuild to begin the design and planning stage of the project. Right from the outset Kelly and I were at ease with Michael and, having been through preliminary design and discussions with several other builders, were both immediately confident we would be able to achieve the ‘Special’ result we were looking for.

I am quite a perfectionist and have very high expectations in everything I do. Working with Michael and his team gave me a great deal of comfort knowing they too were striving every day to meet those high expectations, and to deliver a superior product that would stand out from the norm. The superior quality of the finishing, and the attention paid to the endless list of small details, is a reflection on the integrity and capabilities of the tradesmen in the team… This was such an important factor for us.

To have Michael’s constant input and advice right throughout the project was invaluable, and the fact he too is continually striving for perfection has been instrumental in having delivered us a truly remarkable home.

To the Edgebuild team,

We want to thank you for our beautiful new home! We are constantly getting compliments on the quality of the work and the attention to detail on the finish on our house (and might we say we are rapt with it).

Your availability for meetings and communication and prompt follow up is I’m sure part of the reason our home was completed in such an unusually short space of time for a knock down rebuild.

We feel like part of the Edgebuild family and would, and do, highly recommend you to anyone looking to build.

Many thanks
