We used Main Layne to do our outdoor patio area - double the size of our living space, and did such a beautiful job! Great builder and great contractors... We'll use them again for a new house in Ashgrove!
I have loved my house in Wilston ever since I moved into it over a dozen years ago. After years of planning a renovation only in my head turned into a real renovation, I knew I wanted a builder who would love the house as much as I did, and that's when I found Andy and Main Layne.What I didn't know before I met Andy & Chrissy was that they would fill every criteria that I had on my checklist:Builder who came highly recommended by friends he'd done work for, check.Builder who had a great crew with loads of experience, check.Builder's wife and partner who manages the non-building side of the business as well as Andy manages the building side of it, check, check, and check!Andy and his crew will treat your house like their own. Chrissy will manage the financial aspects of your renovation as if she was spending her own money. After all the horror stories of renovation that I'd heard from well-meaning friends and acquaintances, I'm like the mother who gives birth to a baby that sleeps through the night from the day you bring him or her home from the hospital; my renovation was done to budget, to time, and I could not be happier with the whole process and especially the end result. Everyone who has visited my house post-renovation has been equally impressed, from the valuation expert the bank sent out, right through to my mother. I don't know what I love more, my new red roof that doesn't leak, or my absolutely gorgeous ensuite. Actually I do know, my favourite is the back deck, the ultimate outdoor room built to suit our wonderful Queensland climate.
So go ahead, get those three quotes; I did, and then I went with the builder who was my first choice right from the beginning, Main Layne Constructions.
Well, our patio project is nearing its end, and I just wanted to write to say a huge THANK YOU for all that you have done.We are so incredibly thrilled with the outcome and our beautiful new patio. Main Layne was a pleasure to work with; always so professional from start to finish. I really loved the customer service you provided throughout the planning stages, letting us know where we were at with the Council approval, etc. I don't think we ever had to email you for an update or chase you down to find things out – you were always on the ball, providing us with information.The actual project also went very smoothly and the Main Layne staff, along with any contractors, were just a pleasure to have around. We believe the final product says it all – our patio structure and roof were so well-made, with such attention to detail. It looks so wonderful and we now have a beautiful addition to our home – a modern, huge outdoor room. Nothing was too much trouble, and Andy was so helpful in providing advice and organizing anything we needed from special structures to plants.
I must also thank Andy and all the Main Layne staff for being so kind to my children while conducting their work. I never felt on edge or that my children were 'in the way' – quite the opposite really, so much so, my children are very sad that you are all going away! Especially our little Finn, "the apprentice" – he will certainly miss 'the big fellas'!
Anyhow, I can't say enough how much we love the final outcome and our experience with Main Layne. I have some of your business cards and will definitely be passing those around to any friends interested in building/renovating! If ever you need testimonials, just let me know – I'm happy to speak with any potential clients to tell them about our experience working with you.
Hopefully we'll get to see you again with any future projects we may have.
Our restoration project is completed and we are absolutely delighted with the result. We began with a century old house in what could only be described as being in a very "tired" condition and now we have an asset in which we can take considerable pride.Andy and the rest of the team at Main Layne Constructions did a wonderful job for us and they certainly have our personal recommendation. In our experience, Andy is an extremely professional builder who always delivers what he promises.
We just wanted to say thank you for doing such a great job on our house and getting us back home so quickly after the flood. It really meant a lot to us to be able to bring Baby Owen and Felix home here, and Felix loves to talk about how Andy, Anthony and Aaron fixed his house. Thanks Again! Wendy, Scott, Felix and Owen
I showed some friends around earlier in the week and they said they have house envy!! Every one is commenting on what a good job Andy and the boys have done - totally stoked!!"
