Emma Chapple, Mt Eliza

Chris from CRICO Pty Ltd was a pleasure to work with from our initial consultations and throughout the entirety of our project.  He and his team of tradespeople were efficient and approachable, ensuring that all preferences and details were confirmed before each stage of works were commenced. 

Chris communicated effectively with us along the way to check all of the finer details and to keep us updated on the progress of our project, taking into account our work and home commitments when doing so.

We are very happy with our renovation project and most grateful that Chris and his team could ensure that handover occurred with no fuss, minimal disruption to our family and within our preferred time frame for completion.

Thank-you, Chris for our beautiful new bathrooms and laundry.

Andrea and Paul Johnson, Aspendale

When deciding on a builder to renovate our house that was to be our home for the next 20+ years, we were after a quality job, and with CRICO Pty Ltd that’s what we got.

During the quote process CRICO Pty Ltd were the only 1 of 4 builders to quote who sent their main trades people over to view the job and scope out any possible difficulties.   The result was a realistic quote; compared to others we thought might “blow out” in costs.

Once construction started we were impressed nothing was pre-fabricated, it was all done on site to exacting standards.   The quality of work from the trades people employed was excellent, attention was paid to detail and the finishes, and all work was scrutinised by builder to meet his own standards.  If not up to scratch it was re-done.

The project manager was accessible to us and managed in a manner that allowed us to make variations to the contracted specifications with minimal fuss.    Any problems were addressed and rectified quickly and the contract was completed on time and to price originally quoted (plus variations).

We are very happy with our final product and would wholeheartedly recommend CRICO Pty Ltd.

Amanda and Tim Johnson, Moorooduc :

“I wanted to write and let you know how pleased we are with our new deck and renovation! The pergola and 100+ sqm deck design is fantastic and is a real focal point of our home whilst our new laundry and entrance area ties in beautifully with the existing building structure.

Chris Richards of CRICO is a hard working, courteous, well-mannered person who is always willing to stop and answer questions and review progress. His attention to detail really impressed us and along the way, he made a number of suggestions which greatly improved our overall result. Chris obviously enjoys his work and takes great pride in every step of the process – from submitting plans on our behalf, dealing with contractors and inspectors, through to cleaning up and leaving a safe environment for our family at the end of each day. His craftsmanship is excellent!

I would highly recommend Chris Richards for your next building job and would be happy to give a personal recommendation if necessary.”

K Watson: 

We were recommended by friends who had recently renovated their home using CRICO PTY LTD and after seeing the results, made the decision to give them the go ahead.

 We had an unusual design due to the odd shape of our block of land but that didn’t faze Chris and his team and we could not be happier with the final result. 

The project was very well managed, timings were met where required and the finish is fantastic, we couldn’t be happier. 

We have no hesitation in recommending CRICO PTY LTD; and have two of our neighbours, who after seeing our renovations, ask for Chris’ number.
