Client Reviews

Ben and Caleb were amazing from the first consultation, to follow up work. They worked efficiently and always made sure the work site was clean and tidy, which was a blessing as we lived in our home while they renovated it. Ben was always happy to discuss any problems or alterations with us. Whenever a change to the design had to be made during the renovation, Ben always provided on the spot alternatives with an accurate pricing estimate and what the changes would mean for the final product. From this, Ben's expertise and vast knowledge of building and the industry was evident. Rise Residential makes any building process seamless and I will be using them for all building projects in the future.

Ben came to talk us through what our options had. Quote was sent in a timely manner and a time frame of when the job would be done. The work was carried out in tidy manner. Would be more than happy to use Ben and his team again for any work around the house inside or out.

Couldn’t recommend Ben and his team more! We were stressed and nervous before starting our work, having heard stories of the horrors of building but that wasn’t what we experienced at all! Ben and Caleb were awesome to have around, they had the job done quickly and to an high standard; and Ben dealt with any issues quickly and without any added stress. He really went in to bat for us a few times which was well above and beyond what we expected. Ben and Caleb were professional but so friendly and we felt comfortable having them around our home. Have already recommended Rise Residential to several people and will continue to do so. Thanks so much guys!

We decided to build a self contained flat onto our existing house. We selected Rise Residential and we had a very good experience working with Ben and his team. They were prompt, very well organised and always on time with their project planning and management. If we suggested any changes, they were exceptionally good at listening to our needs and making the amendments, sometimes suggesting even better ideas! Rise Residential were a pleasure to work with and I would happily recommend them to others.

You won’t find a better building company in Canterbury. From day 1, Ben has been spot on with communication and made our 12 week renovation as easy as it could be. And as a result of his work ethic, all his sub trades were the same. Can not recommend enough. Massive thanks to Ben, Caleb and Tom. You guys rock.

Ben assisted with and managed the remodelling of our ensuite bathroom. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product and Ben’s professional service.

Ben replaced the exterior weatherboards on a wall of my 1905 cottage. He responded quickly to my initial inquiry and I was really impressed by Ben's friendly, capable manner as well as his experience in dealing with the quirks of an old property. He understood that I had a budget and I felt confident that he was willing to work within this. The workmanship is of a high quality and Ben and his team left the property immaculate. I have no hesitation in recommending Rise Residential for professional, efficient, quality workmanship.

Ben was great to work with on my latest renovation project. He spent time working through the quote and refined expectations before we started. Once on site he was timely, professional and communicated potentional issues as they came up, with solutions. As a result his final invoice had no surprises.I am very happy with result. I would highly recommend Rise Residential to anyone looking for an exceptional builder that is easy to deal with and delivers what hes says he will.

We employed Ben to undertake repairs on our home after a recommendation from a friend. We have been most impressed with both his workmanship and his level of contentiousness. He communicates his intentions well, is on time and completes paperwork such as quotes in a timely manner. I would highly recommend.
