Testimonials

"Terry [Buildaway Construction] is one of the most reliable and conscientious workers that I have had dealings with for some time. He is very upfront and motivated. Nothing is too trivial for him and it is so lovely to be able to discuss a variety of projects with him from building to landscaping and find that he is able to take care of them all. No false promises are made, if he says he will see you at such and such a time he does or he lets you know ahead of time if something prevents it and reschedules. Good workmanship is guaranteed in that he always checks with you if you are happy with the job before sending out his account. Everything is in writing from quotes through to the final account so no hidden extras. Would highly recommend him and will be using him again."

Audrey Van Laar, 2018

"I was looking for someone to do around my back door. It was in an awful state with the paint all peeling from it. Terry's name was given to Me. I rang him the same day and he came straight away and looked at what had to be done. "Shippy" the painter arrived a couple of days afterward. What a pleasant man. What a wonderful job he did. I will certainly tell anyone to go to them [Buildaway Construction]."
