When I first met Anton my upstairs deck replacement seemed quite daunting to me and a major job, but he re-assured me with his professionalism, his 'can do' approach and his friendliness. He initially helped me over the first hurdle by pointing me to a designer and whose plans were subsequently promptly approved by the Council. Red Square Construction have now completed the work and, in spite of some small hold-ups, Anton ensured the work progressed with minimum delay and that things were being done properly. Anton was always available for any concerns and was a pleasure to work with, as also were his team, and I now have a beautiful and solid new deck to enjoy for many years to come.

After researching several building companies I chose to go with Red Square Construction, Anton was prompt with his reply to my enquiry and on meeting him on site he was able to give me an outline of the work he thought would be appropriate and from that moment onwards I felt confident that I had made a good choice. Throughout the project I found Anton and his team to be punctual, polite and considerate while working around my home and causing as little inconvenience as possible. I am very pleased with the work carried out and the attention to detail, I will happily recommend to family and friends. Margaret Ralston

We employed Red Square to build a deck and they did a fantastic job! Anton was very prompt, polite and professional with everything from the initial meeting right through to the final inspection. Although it was a simple deck, the only access was through the house via the kitchen and living room. Anton ensured there was good floor and carpet protection and his team were very respectful of our home, keeping their workspace tidy, creating as little mess and noise as possible and always keeping us informed on the various stages of the job. Throughout the process, Anton was always available to discuss any queries. They finished the job within the given time frame, stuck to the budget and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards leaving us to enjoy our new deck. We cannot fault them and will definitely be using Red Square again without question and can highly recommend them. Thank you Anton for a job well done!

We engaged Anton and his team to replace our rotting deck that was becoming an embarrassment. It was only a matter of time before someone fell through it. At first, we were a bit taken aback at his quote, but he was cheaper than the other guy and his obvious knowledge reassured us that we would be getting the better job anyway. Our deck was a large one and it had been well nailed, but was pine that had been laid wrong side up, without spaces to drain water. Watching them work, it became obvious why it cost a bit more than I had anticipated. It was a big job. Dismantling the deck, the rotting planks would break apart, few came away cleanly and easily. Rebuilding was more complicated. They had to sand every board checking for mold and rot, (not the new Kwila, of course), replacing what needed replacing, and levelling everything up. Removing all the nails from the joists, checking for rot, replacing what needed replacing and ensuring the joists were straight and level. They used screws instead of nails, a much more secure method. Cutting and laying the Kwila planks was an education. 24m x 130mm planks are not straight and required straightening as they were screwed down. Mounting them right side up meant they would now drain properly. They painted the ends of the planks with a waterproof coating before fitting them together. They made sure each angle, each join, was a perfect fit. The end result was a beautiful job, obviously done by a team of highly skilled proffessionals. Hopefully the photos do it justice. By the time they were done, I commented to Anton that I was amazed he could do such a big job, so well, for the price.

Anton and the team at Red Square are amazing to work with and deliver great results on time and to quoted budget. Everything about our small repair job went easily and according to schedule. A number of things really stuck out for us and made the Red Square experience one we would happily repeat and wholeheartedly endorse: Thinking with you, your requirements and budget – Anton had some great suggestions and alternatives to a design element we wanted. His ability to think outside of the box whilst still considering budget and practicality makes him a solid and reliable partner in realising the outcome you want. Anton’s friendly demeanour and easy way of communicating the scope and detail of the work in meaningful terms is testament to his professionalism. Attention to detail – Anton’s eye for a quality finish is second to none, if it’s not right, it will be. He treats each job as if it were being done in his own home and uses that lens to make sure you will look with satisfaction for years to come at the work delivered. Quality tradespeople – Good workmanship lies at the heart of any job. Anton’s core crew and the subcontractors he engaged were great; polite, skilled, efficient and cleaned up the job site after each visit so we could continue to use the space, meaning the impact to us was kept to a minimum. Clear and effective communication – Anton was very responsive to any query and made sure that subcontractors and team members communicated the timings of the scheduled activities to so we could plan around that. That helped immensely in making the best use of our time and reduced the stress of the unknown. We would happily choose Red Square again for renovation work knowing we are in safe hands.

We worked alongside Red Square Construction on a recent project. Anton was a pleasure to work with and his teams workmanship was of the highest quality. I was so impressed I have request him to construct a deck at my home. I have no hesitation in recommending RSC.
