“Marty Bamford and his team are in the process of completing building work at my home in Arkles Bay.  The timber frame showed signs of such extreme deterioration that it was uneconomic to attempt a repair.  After close consultation with Marty it was decided that demolition and a complete re-build was the best option – he was right.

Marty has rebuilt the house with an improved design and I am extremely pleased with it.

The team of tradesmen working on our home were absolute professionals and the communication between myself, Marty and his sub-contractors was first rate.  The expertise and advice given to me was excellent – my new home is simply outstanding as a result.  It’s great to have a builder you can trust and someone who can make the process enjoyable and rewarding.

I have no hesitation in recommending Marty.”

“Platinum Pacific Homes assessed, quoted, and completed a thorough maintenance programme on our property in Manukau City. All the staff, contractors, and crew were nothing but professional and reliable, and completed all work to a very high standard.

We were also provided with a follow up Maintenance Report and Maintenance Booklet outlining suggested timeframes to ensure the property is kept in the optimal condition. Many thanks to Marty and his team for the excellent service!”

“Our home had been extensively damaged by fire and when you’re faced with a large and expensive repair job, it takes a lot of pressure off to know you are dealing with a professional you can trust.

The team at Platinum Pacific Reclad Ltd, apart from rebuilding our home, had the skill and experience to carry out additional work including changes to the roof design and complete refurbishment of the interior, including modernisation of all the bathrooms and kitchen. We took the opportunity to reclad with timber weatherboards, rather than the existing plaster system, which resulted in an increase in valuation of approximately $300,000.  It also made the house more “saleable” as a lot of buyers will not look at a plaster house even if there are no leaks.

I have renovated multiple houses before and built several but wanted to concentrate on my business and let the experts take care of the project. This meant we didn’t have the additional hassle of working with multiple contractors, in fact we had the confidence to let Marty and his team handle all of the details. They were a great team to work with and any problems that arose wore sorted out quickly and without any hassle.

The work was done with quality materials and workmanship and we don’t think we could have got a better outcome.”

Having your home diagnosed as ‘leaky’ is a very stressful experience. We engaged Platinum Pacific Reclad to ‘fix’ it. The whole process was managed very well by Marty, he responded promptly to any queries we had, taking the time to explain any detail we wanted to discuss, big or small. He was always mindful of keeping within budget without compromising design or workmanship. His team were always professional, respectful and also willing to explain anything while working on site. We felt we could trust him and his team, not an easy thing to do after years of getting differing advice and costs to rectify our home. Leaky home owners will I’m sure identify with this.

We have no hesitation in recommending Marty and his team to anybody needing a total reclad of their home.

“I have used Platinum Pacific Homes to sort out a major problem in a rental property that I own.  The tenant had not advised that there was a leak in the bedroom and as a consequence the ceiling fell in.  Platinum Pacific Homes dropped everything and rushed to the rescue, making the place habitable again in only two days.

They not only fixed the roof, ceiling and bedroom but found another leak around the shower and replaced the surrounding areas and put in a new shower for me.

I was most impressed with the speed and professionalism with which the job was undertaken.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Platinum Pacific Homes for any building work.  They were speedy, efficient and did a really good job.  As an owner of a rental property it is good to know reliable, competent and reasonable tradesmen.”

“I can highly recommend Marty Bamford and his team at Platinum Pacific Reclad.   They carried out extensive remedial work on my bathroom and laundry in 2009.

His tradesmen are first class and Marty kept me informed throughout the entire repair process.”

“We have recently had our house renovation completed by Platinum Pacific Group of builders and we are extremely happy with our outcome.

We were lucky enough to be able to stay downstairs while the renovation was in progress and the builders were great to deal with. Suggestions made to enhance our final outcome but never too pushy.

Every morning, 6.50am we would hear the container door open, the front door unlocked and then you’d hear whistling to announce their arrival.

The team led by Richard were extremely approachable and we totally enjoyed our build with them. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this team to anyone wanting renovate in the future.

We would like to recommend Platinum Pacific for your building requirements”

“Hillary and I want to acknowledge the tremendous job you and Richard and the team have done in rebuilding our home. 

There were two early realizations that we were in very good hands. One came in the form of advice from neighbors who had worked with you and the second occurred when one of the building Inspectors told us Richard was the best builder he knew and he didn’t really need to inspect his work.

We were initially a little apprehensive about staying in the house during the reclad but our anxieties were unfounded as the team were great to have around and made it easy. There were several things we really liked about your approach. You and Richard made everything seem manageable and relatively easy, with a very helpful ‘can do’ attitude. We soon realized we could trust you both and that we were able to rely on the advice given.

We also really appreciated how well Richard related to and managed the team and we never heard raised voices in all the time they were onsite. The quality and standard of the work speaks for itself and we are extremely pleased with the outcome in what was clearly an extremely challenging job.

We would be more than happy to act as referees and we will recommend you to anyone needing any work to be done. A huge thanks to you both and the team and we wish you all the very best.”

“Platinum Pacific fulfilled our hopes and need for understanding of the issues, insight into cost-effective and market-effective solutions, and generally timely work schedule. From Marty on through every staff member was courteous, helpful, and a credit to the team. Highly recommended.”
