In August 2010 we contacted Kevin Evans about the possibility of building a home for us at Whiritoa. None of the regular plans suited us and Kevin was promptly onto providing a modified plan to meet our needs and our budget. We were particularly impressed with his willingness and skill in adapting plans and equally for the very good advice he gave us at all stages. It was never too much trouble to discuss plans from a distance or indeed to travel to meet us to go over details. Equally helpful and communicative were his staff on site at Whitianga who were not only involved at the planning stages but also handled the Council (no small feat) and choice of flooring, furnishings etc. It was a real pleasure to deal with everyone at the Evans Group.
We were equally impressed with the efficiency with which the work was carried out and the quality of the product achieved. There seemed to be exceptionally good communication with the people contracted to do the various works, coordination of which meant that the building progressed rapidly and was completed more than a week ahead of what was already a tight pre-Christmas schedule.
We could not be more pleased with the outcome. Anyone valuing a highly professional and efficient but personable approach to a building of the very best standard would be well advised to consult Evans Homes. Their enthusiasm in trying to ensure you get a home built quickly that you are really happy with is something that will doubtless set them apart from many other competitors.
We were fortunate in choosing Evans Homes to build our new holiday home at Wharekaho Beach, Whitianga. The ability to revise a sound basic design to suit our particular needs at very little extra cost, combined with innovative enhancements suggested by Evans Homes has resulted in a delightful low maintenance home built to a very high standard.
The friendly and professional staff kept us informed throughout the construction process, plus the high quality of work could not be faulted. Evans Homes went that extra mile to ensure the project was completed on time and to our satisfaction.
We wish to place on record our sincere appreciation for the fine job in constructing our new home on our farm property at Hahei. The entire project from inception to completion was undertaken by you and your senior staff with full understanding and empathy for our requirements, a high degree of workmanship from all trades and a high degree of professional supervision throughout the construction period.
Throughout the early stages of planning and consent Evans Homes Ltd was extremely professional, yet friendly and helpful. This continued throughout the entire project. Their Project Manager and Foreman carpenter always followed up on detail and changes.
Our home was completed on time and to a high standard. We would like to thank Kevin Evans, Susan and the team and have no reservations in recommending Evans Homes to any prospective buyers.
Seldom do I get the chance to write and thank people or a company for amazing service. In terms of the house, the finishing work, deadlines met and support contractors you and your team recommended, it’s all been beyond my⁄our expectations.
The other area we were nervous about and warned by many people (supposedly who knew) was cost. Without exception, everything has been on budget and as stated in the contract. How often does that happen?
Kevin, I keep on hearing all sorts of bad stories about people building new houses – my experience has been completely the opposite – nice to deal with open and honest people who know what they are doing.
Thank you all for making our recent experience of building a new house on our farm such an enjoyable experience. You were all great to work with and we felt nothing was too difficult for you – well you did all the work, we just did a bit of thinking at times.
Neil and Kelvin in particular did a wonderfully neat job on the building side.
We employed Evans Homes to extend our property, originally a single story, standard ‘Fantail’ Initial Home, built in 1998.
After considering various alternatives, we decided to lift the original house and construct a complete new floor underneath. Although this was not their normal type of work, Evans Homes produced drawings, organised an engineer’s report and obtained a building consent from the Thames District Council, all with minimum delay. Although this was not the type of project normally undertaken by Evans Homes, the contract proceeded with very few problems, any that did occur being sorted efficiently and amicably.
The contract price was met and any extra’s requested were approved and quoted prior to work commencing. Although the completion date was a little later than scheduled, the finished job is credit to the skill and efficiency of the Evans Homes work force.
We therefore are pleased to recommend Mr. Kevin Evans and his Team at Evans Homes to any prospective house purchaser.
