"I have hired Dave on two occasions to do paving and landscaping at my home and can highly recommend the quality of his work.  Dave is very professional in his approach to understanding exactly what you want to achieve and is experienced enough to be able to offer suggestions that you might not have thought of yourself.


Dave’s rates are very reasonable and he’s always delivered exceptional value for money.


Dave is very personable and polite and is a pleasure to have around. He goes out of his way to please his client and always makes sure the site is cleaned up when he is finished.


I would personally recommend Dave and would definitely hire him again for any more jobs I might have in the future."

"M & D Carpentry. Having undertaken a renovation project Dave Gentle was the perfect fit for the job.  Why,  well other than having an accent and been a Spurs fan – major faults to start with I guess!, it still worked out well.   


Dave I found to be a very reliable, ethical, and capable builder/carpenter to achieve high quality workmanship with the resources provided.   He was able to provide many practical solutions and always contributed positively to budget and quality.  He was exceptionally well organised and always kept the place clean (I think I want him back just to continue the cleaning!) and was respectful to other key stakeholders whilst working on the project.  


A key reason that worked for me was the amount of changes I made after discussion with Dave and consulting with outside consultants (namely the family!) and Dave took it all in his stride.   Considering the renovation commenced with a wall to be moved and a window installed the final project was finished many weeks later with a few more walls knocked out!   I am very happy to recommend Dave to anyone and would gladly take your call if you would like a reference.

"I first met David Gentle several years ago as part of the carpentry team doing a bathroom renovation at my house. I was impressed by Dave's professionalism, punctuality and attention to detail. Due to the great job he did on that project, I engaged his services on other private renovation work subsequently offering him work in our rental property maintenance business where his skills were utilised on some of our larger jobs. Not only is Dave a skilled builder, but he is very easy to communicate with during and after work . I have no hesitation in recommending Dave to anyone and will be utilising his services for future projects that our company undertakes."

 "Dave worked on my narrow boat and turned an unused and unloved old boat into a beautiful home. Dave completely gutted the boat, and then everything was put back in new with a kitchen, bathroom, pull out bed, storage and seating, new floors and a fresh coat of paint. Dave did a great job and at a great price!
