Chris Riley of Aussie Outdoor Living who we phoned, spoke to and within less than two hours was at our front door, very well presented, completely kitted out with an impressive heavy duty carrying case which contained a variety of building sample products.
Chris listened intently as we spoke, made notes, wandered outside our property, visualised what was possible and then carefully articulated how it would be achieved. It sounded wonderful, everything that we dreamt of and more; the biggest selling point was the aluminium deck that resembled a wooden deck! This was remarkable, no protruding nails or screws, no deck staining or on-going maintenance.
We then visited Chris’s showroom where we were able to touch and feel the products. The displays were neat and professionally presented. Throughout this phase, there was no hard sell approach from Chris. The ideas and products were presented for our consideration.
These building professionals were different; they arrived on time, respected our property, they were polite, cleaned up afterwards and neatly packed their materials away before leaving. This approach really impressed us. The excellent quality of their work was a reflection of their attitude; good, enthusiastic with an amazing attention to detail. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen building professionals work with such pride as a team.
The entire project, which included the drawing up of plans, council submission, DA approval etc. was expertly handled by Chris Riley and his colleagues. We were kept informed at every step of the project and did very little except arranging payments at the end of each scheduled phase.
We are entirely satisfied with the work that Chris and his team delivered. We have no hesitation in recommending Chris and his team to any prospective client considering practical outdoor home improvements professionally built for the long term. John & Delysia”
