Testimonials

A lot of people have a lot of nice things to say about Thistle Building. Some people wrote their comments down, while others we managed to catch on film!

“What I liked best about Thistle was the guys, the workmanship they put in, and just great people to deal with.”

Chris Davidson

“I was new to the area and I asked some people who had been here for a long time who they would recommend to use as a building company, and the first name they came up with was Thistle.”

Nick Theobald

“You build your dream home only once in a lifetime. With utmost professionalism and minimal stress, the team from Thistle managed to translate our dream into a beautiful reality. We love it!”

Jimmy Field

“There was plenty of open communication with what sort of design we want and we managed to come up with something that fitted our budget, something that we really liked, and quite importantly something that fitted the site.”

Steve Carlin

“Tweed has clean stylish lines that I really love, and it goes with so many different interior designs.”

Jennifer Gayfer

“We couldn’t be more delighted with the end result. Simon and his workforce have made the building process a pleasure. They are highly skilled, easy to communicate with, have good ideas and above all are very efficient and hardworking. We would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Alasdair and Sarah Gibb

“The quality was really exceptional. We’ve been very very happy with everything that was done.”

Jim and Leslie Simmons

“The other benefit of using Thistle Builders was the software app they have, which allowed me to monitor the building of the house from my home up in Waiheke Island.”

Emma Clark

“Our building experience was very positive, enjoyable and stress-free. Thistle were approachable, helpful and professional. The quality of work was outstanding with impressive attention to detail. We were more than satisfied with the outcome of our house and would recommend Thistle to everyone considering building.

We look forward to working with Simon and his team in the future.”

Hamish Wylie

“Right from the word go – great communication.”

Pam Wickstead

“The communication was really good while we were building. It was really easy to get hold of Thistle, which is good when you’re juggling working and children.”

Ben and Holly Winder

“Thistles communication was great, they were always on time and made good recommendations for local trades people from plumbers to electricians. Their attention to detail was also noted and they would come up with practical suggestions to ensure that we had a seamless flow from the original part of the house to the renovated areas. Their professionalism was most welcome, they left the house clean and were conscious about us trying to live in the house at the same time they were renovating it.

We have no hesitation in recommending Thistle Builders for future work.”

Guy Farman

“We’d engaged an architect, and we wanted a building company that was going to do justice to the design plans.”

Doug Carter and Elizabeth Garvie

“Thistle Builders constructed our new house 2013 – 2014. Simon and his team were great communicators and guided us through all aspects from paperwork to completion. His builders were tidy around the site and always polite and friendly. All their planning and hard work has left us with a home we feel really comfortable in.

We have already used Thistle Builders on other projects and would recommend them to others.”

Russ and Kate Smith

“From the start they actually turned up on time and were really reliable.”
