Customer Feedback

Dear Gavin

On behalf of Westering Primary School, I would like to thank you most sincerely for the excellent work that you did with the extensions to our Aftercare building. I can honestly say dealing with you was an absolute pleasure.

Thank you for the concerned and highly professional way you went about all the various tasks, from the initial quoting, right through to finally completing the work. Every query I had was always calmly and efficiently dealt with and it was obvious to me that you take great pride in your work. I must also complement your staff on the quiet work. In the many weeks that they were on our site, we hardly even knew they were here. They always worked quietly without troubling or interfering with our children, and every evening when they left, the site was left in a clean and organized state.

Once again, many thanks for all your efforts. I can assure you that were we to do any building in the future, we would definitely call on you.

Best wishes for the future and may your business go from strength to strength, as you deserve it.

Builders are well known to suffer from a syndrome known as 3-2-1. What this means is that the building they do takes three times as long as they said it would, the final cost is twice what they tendered for and it leaves you with a feeling that you want to deal with them only once in your lifetime! However, with Zeelie Builders this syndrome just was not true! We did extensive renovations entailing banging, smashing, breaking down, building up and redoing most of our living area. Morne’ Zeelie’s quote was the best and he stipulated exactly how long and when things would happen. He also undertook to clean up the messy rubble after each day’s activity. Let it be said here that he kept to all of the foregoing, it all happened exactly as he said it would and the finish was fine-tuned to perfection. No mess, no fuss was the order of the day. And best of all, the final cost was exactly as he said, plus a few extras ordered by myself! So, I can recommend Zeelie Builders to anyone, who want to the job done at the quoted cost, in the time undertaken. And certainly for me it will be 1 -1 Many times as needed, certainly not the 3-2-1 of other builders!!

Kind regards

Hi All, I have just had my new home built by an amazing builder, a must to use- Zeelie Builders. Morne Zeelie went the extra mile with a smile on his face. Even with all the rain he was still able to finish in time. Just had to tell all as you don't always get such good service from a builder in PE.

We recently had some building alterations and other work done at home. From start till finish, I had the pleasure to work with Gavin Zeelie and his professional & more than competent team.

I highly recommend Gavin (Zeelie Builders) for fast and effective service, as well as a high standard of building quality.

Gavin, thanks for all the additional efforts, updates without having to ask, being kept informed as well as your recommendations from time to time. Not to mention the understanding of the sometimes changing needs, as well as ability to stick to the budget, with even the "after-sales-service" to be complimented.

It had been an absolute pleasure - I hope to do business again with you in the future.
