"Earlier this year we looked into the prospect of doing a massive renovation to update a grand old home. We brought together a dream team including an architect, interior designer and Straight Line Builders. They helped us formulate the scope of the work, and as the due diligence progressed, Bryson came to the party with several options, giving us in the end a full scope as well as two cheaper but still complete options. Bryson was always incredibly professional, knowledgeable and perceptive as to our needs. His connections in the industry meant that he could have experts on site quickly to quote and advise, thus making his scope proposals incredibly complete, should we go ahead and begin this work. We are impressed with his know-how, his solution focus and his customer-care mentality. Straight Line Builders have shown a wonderful work ethic and we would recommend them for any project."

Grand Old Home

“I would highly recommend Straightline Builders for anyone looking to renovate or build. Bryson and his team worked closely with me to complete an upgrade of an existing bathroom, toilet and decking. Bryson and Ed were fantastic to work with on a daily basis as we considered each stage of the detail. Consultation was key for me. I had a certain budget to work to and Straightline worked hard to assist me to stay within that with different options and ideas. In fact coming up with great suggestions (a built in seat on the deck) to enhance the finished build. At each point the guys kept functionality and budget in mind. The quality of work is high and Bryson has remained available for after build questions. I’ll be using Straightline again.”

At each point the guys kept functionality and budget in mind - I’ll be using Straightline again

“We recently contracted Straightline Builders to build a complicated home show stand design. We faced many challenges including ensuring the safety of the stand pieces amongst a crowd of 45 000 over 5 days, managing the non-existence of supporting structural walls as well as having the ultimate goal of designing and building something that could be easily transported and re-utilised at future home shows. During this process Bryson and his team showed excellent foresight and both engineering and building knowledge. They are a team who are extremely helpful and seemed to constantly go over and beyond our expectations. They are the type of people who are team players and worked outside of what was required in order to get the job done well. The result was an outstanding home show stand and ultimate success for our company which meant an excellent return on investment. I would not hesitate to recommend Bryson and his team to anyone who not only wants a project build to perfection but with a team who are open to thinking outside the square with a positive attitude. It’s not easy to find tradespeople like this these days so it was refreshing to work with them.”

“A great job by Bryson and his team, right from the first meeting and quote to the final tidy up our two bathroom and bedroom/wardrobe renovation we were very happy. Bryson is a good communicator, very organised, fully project manages the work and subcontractors. Any issue he deals with it immediately. Only hold up was out of his control. He gave good advice re materials and fittings along with minor changes to our advantage. thrilled with the result and would recommend Straightline Builders.”

Thrilled with the Results

“Thank you so much Bryson for such awesome work! I cannot rate Straightline Builders highly enough. They were fantastic as I used Straightline to replace a window and to perform some small renovations such as new kitchen cupboards, a fantastic new built in wardrobe and pantry and to do some maintenance on my property. Bryson is excellent with his communications. He always got back to me and was very flexible at all times. He really understands what is required and he is efficient, creative, well organised and reliable. I am very happy with the results and the work in the kitchen was done to a high standard and just excellent. I would absolutely recommend this business and will continue to recommend Straightline to my family, friends and colleagues. Thanks to the whole Straightline team – awesome job.”

Such Awesome Work!

“We contracted Straightline Builders to undertake an extensive renovation to our property in Birkenhead Point. From the outset, Bryson Rangi, the director, always responded very promptly and efficiently to our requirements and was always open to different ideas and suggestions. His project management was excellent making sure that materials arrived on time and tradespeople carried out their work according to plan and budget. He has a wide network of trade contacts and suppliers which enhances his ability to deliver. On a personal level, Bryson was very communicative in his dealings with us keeping us fully appraised of progress and resolving issues as they arose through the life of the project. He is a skilled builder in his own right and was always willing to roll up his sleeves when the situation demanded it. He was a very pleasant person to deal with and he has surrounded himself with a team of people who are equally pleasant. From a financial perspective, Straightline was efficient and accurate with its quoting and invoicing and there were no unexpected surprises. We are very happy with our renovation and would recommend Bryson and Straightline to any prospective clients.”

Very happy with our Renovation - thanks

“From the first visit to quote, Bryson impressed us with his can-do attitude, respect for our 1920s bungalow renovation ideas and his endearing, warm character. The quote was comprehensive and delivered quickly. Throughout the project, the quote was adhered to with no surprises. We raised variations along the way and Bryson responded just as professionally as at the outset of the project. His team were all professional, hardworking and very amiable – a pleasure to have around. This matters a great deal when your project runs into a couple of months or more. Since we worked from home we had a special requirement not to have a radio on site and this, like every other aspect of their approach, was not a problem. The works were fully swept and tidied at the end of each day and rubbish taken away. Our restoration meant a long period of time without a kitchen and bathroom however they ensured we had temporary facilities at all times which kept us going. The standard of workmanship throughout was professional. Bryson managed his team brilliantly with crucial daily onsite visits, bringing contracted tradesman when required meaning no undue waiting. We always felt Bryson was on top of the job and personally aware of every aspect. This made a large job run smoothly with sanity in tact! As with other reviews, we found Bryson’s communication excellent – always replying to phone calls and emails promptly. For future building work we wouldn’t dream of using anyone else.”

For future building work we wouldn’t dream of using anyone else

“I needed an urgent building job done in my laundry. I phoned countless builders who were all booked up for weeks even months. It was only a small job that required a couple of hours, yet no one would look at it. When I phoned Bryson, he listened, understood the urgency and said he’d come and look at it. I couldn’t have been more relieved. True to his word, he turned up, assessed the job, organised what needed to be done and before I knew it the problem was solved and fixed. I did incur a rather high callout fee in the invoice, but considering it was an emergency, it was definitely worth it. Bryson did an excellent job but more importantly he rescued the situation, I am one very happy customer!”

One Happy Customer!

“Really happy! We engaged Bryson and his team initially for some renovations to our downstairs rooms and were impressed enough that we kept them on to build a large deck and do further renovations to the outside of our property. Bryson is a great communicator and very relaxed and positive in his ability to find solutions for any problems or changes that come up along the way. His team are courteous and tidy and he was able to come up with great ideas for how we could shape our deck and what materials would both look modern and be hard-wearing, no cut corners. We had a vague plan for our work inside and he was able to quickly understand our needs and deal with issues such as a very low ceiling height in the back bed room with little problem and always describing clearly exactly what they would be doing to achieve the results we wanted. I would definitely look no further than Straightline for my next job and recommend Bryson and his team.”

I would definitely look no further than Straightline for my next job

“Right from the get go Bryson understood our vision. Along with his team he was able to make that vision a reality. We absolutely love our new deck/outdoor area. We have used many trades over the years Bryson and the team at Straightline are stand outs I’d happily recommend them. ”

We absolutely love our new deck/outdoor area

“In September 2014 I rang and left a phone message for Bryson Rangi, who is the Director of Straightline Builders. His response to my voice message was prompt and I met him (and one of his team members Matt) within hours of our first conversation. As soon as I met Bryson and Matt I knew my renovation project was going to be in safe hands. Bryson is a great listener, an excellent communicator and a reliable hard worker. He has gone over and above all expectations in project managing and building a two-and-half-month house renovation, on my behalf. Nothing, absolutely nothing was too much trouble to Bryson, as there were several times when I changed my mind about a colour, a style, or a design!! Throughout the project I had the pleasure of meeting most of his professional team of tradesmen from the outstanding painters and electrician, to the dymanic tiler, plasterer and builders. Bryson has exceptional relationship and networking skills, which are essential for coordinating the wide range of stakeholders involved in full house renovation. It has been a stress-free experience working with Bryson and his team from Straightline Builders.”

It has been a stress-free experience

“We engaged Bryson Rangi in a re-construction of our existing front door steps and extended decking at our rural property August 2014. Albeit the design was already created, Bryson was mindful of the functional aspects of the project which he made us consider before commencing work. In hindsight the minor changes made were crucial to the finished product as they made better use of the space and visually appealed from high traffic areas. Throughout the course of the re-construction Bryson and his contractors were consummate professionals updating us of progress and other aspects outside of the build that we should also be considering. Our job was done with care and precision. Bryson is a talented builder shown in attention to detail to timber selection, carpentry finishing and clear communication with us throughout the project. We will be using Straightline Builders in the future and would not hesitate in recommending to others.”

John - September 2014

Bryson is a talented builder

“It is with pleasure and satisfaction that we recommend Straightline Builders. We had a general idea of what we were looking for without any real knowledge of how to achieve it. Bryson from Straightline Builders was able to help us to formulate a plan through his knowledge and expertise. No request was too menial or frivolous- they respected us and our ideas. They were always pleasant and courteous, as well as the subcontractors they brought with them. We never felt uncomfortable with them at our home. Our job was achieved on time and within the budget submitted even though we made changes along the way. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any job, big or small. Thank you Bryson and Ed for making this building experience a pleasurable one.”
