Qualified builders in Cambridge, Waikato


Some feedback from our clients...

While planning to build our eco house, we inspected houses already built and decided Jay had an edge in quality. I got to know the subcontractors he used, who all belonged to a business organisation (BNI) to which I belong - great accountability!

Our experience with using Jay Cowley and his team was brilliant. Firstly, the build quality was superb. The site management was like a well oiled machine. Jay kept on top of construction and anticipated any potential problems early on. He was not afraid to confront an Auckland specialist contractor and insist on our standards, making them perform to specifications of ours and not just Auckland specifications. Nothing was too much trouble and the "can do" attitudes of Jay and team took most of the stress out of a very different and at times challenging project, and we are still the best of friends!!

Without any hesitation or reservation, I would recommend Jay Cowley builder (and team) for any building job, big or small. We are very happy to let people view the project and talk with us over our experience, in the first instance by phone (07 829 5393) and then by inspection, as a measure of our satisfaction.

Building a new home may be the single biggest financial undertaking you ever make in your life, so understandably the decision of who you should choose to build your home is the most important decision you are likely to make.
You will need........

A builder who will listen and understand all of your requests or concerns and keeps you involved during the complete build process.

A builder who has a genuine passion and pride in what he does and transforms these qualities into his work.

A builder who surrounds himself with skilled staff who share their employers work ethics and take pride in creating your new home.

We choose Jay Cowley Builders to build our new home in Norfolk Downs Cambridge as he ticked all the boxes that were important to us. Jay and his team were totally professional during the total build process whilst creating a welcoming reception whenever we visited the site. The quality of tradesman ship was excellent with attention and time shown to detail.

We have built new houses before so are fully aware how stressful and costly things can be if you fail to choose the right people involved in your building project.

We would recommend Jay and his team for your building endeavours for a guaranteed quality job that you will be proud to call home.

Jay Cowley Builder completed a large scale renovation of our house in 2008. Jay project managed the build, which expanded our house from 160sq.m to 350sq.m. Jay and his team were a delight to work with.

They are always professional, have attention to detail and have given us a house to be proud of.

We needed a job fixed from our previous builder who had failed on numerous attempts to correct his initial mistake. Even though it was only a small job, it only took Jay a few moments to flesh a plan and had his boys make it all happen quickly. The fix has held up without any problems and no doubt will continue to do so for some years yet.

We were delighted with the job Jay did on our new home. He is an excellent builder who is very honest, highly skilled and a meticulous tradesman. He demands extraordinarily high standards of himself, his team and the subcontractors he employs which made building our home a pleasurable experience. We have no hesitation in recommending him.
