• Robert has performed several small jobs for me over the past few years and the results have always been most professional. In this example, it was necessary to move the locations of some windows to allow for future internal room reconfigurations. Brand new timber windows were installed in the appropriate positions. In addition, all hardwood weatherboards along one side of the house were replaced. Happy to recommend Phoenix Building and Renovations for any type of building work!

  • Robert has performed some jobs for me in recent years and each project was completed in a timely and professional manner and I have been very happy with the results. My projects included the construction of a front fence, deck and concrete driveway and each one of these jobs were done to a very high standard. Robert took the time to discuss each job with me and he ensures that each stage of the construction phase is completed to my satisfaction. I am more than happy to recommend Phoenix Building and Renovations for any type of construction project work.

  • Being a first time renovator and acutely aware that I had almost zero knowledge of what had to happen and in what order, let alone costs, I was quite stressed even before I started trying to find a builder. I struck gold when, by a stroke of luck, a friend referred Robert at Phoenix Building and Renovations. Robert arrived on time (which is a rare quality in itself) and was polite, professional, patient and helpful when walking me though the renovation process. Robert’s approach is to treat your home like he would treat his own home and he is true to his word. He listened to my rough ideas, explained why something may or may not be a good idea, suggested alternatives but left the ultimate decision to me and respected the decision. He was aware I was on a limited budget and did his upmost to keep costs down and came up with design suggestions to overcome issues I had with the house. These included lack of lighting, lack of shelving space in the kitchen, ideas for a colour scheme which would maximise the impact of the entry way, floor sanding tips, installing a window which is now a main feature, taking out a wall, creating a new entrance as well as being able to organise an experienced and helpful electrician at short notice. Robert takes pride in his work, has strong attention to detail and sets a high standard for himself and expects the same high standard of anyone that helps him with his work. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone considering any kind of renovation and am extremely happy with how the whole process was managed from start to finish and, most importantly, the result.

  • I’m very pleased to have asked Robert Kaplan and his team from Phoenix Building and Renovations to build a deck, patio, driveway with paths and to complete the renovations on my house which had very little maintenance since it was built 30 years ago. In the beginning Robert explained what was to be done in a formal contract, helped with council applications, set out the stages of the work and finally completed the job on time. He was polite and considerate, expert and innovative and gave me lots of crucial advice which made the end product not only look professional but safe, solid, weatherproof and of high quality. I recommend Robert for any small or large building project.
