Broaden has assisted with extensions to our St Peters home on 2 stages

The major extension involved adding significantly to our family area including constructing a timber framed addition which encompassed our kitchen area and improved family area.  This included a roof extension, significant Hebel wall covering, through to new timber flooring.

The second stage included updating bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and creating an en-suite to the main bedroom.

Mark brings to the job a great deal of building experience and expertise.  His approach is to co-operate with his client and to assist them with advice and assistance where requested and appropriate. His management style insures he has happy staff who also desire to give a quality job in a timely fashion.

We are very happy with the outcome of both stages of our renovation.  He and his tradesman completed our job in the time expected. He concentrated himself and his trade’s efforts on our project and used quality professional tradesman to complete the work.

He also carefully selected his sub-contractors for the specialist work they carry out.

We found Mark and his people easy to work with and very trustworthy.

We believe we received good value for the quality job he did for us.

We highly recommend Mark and Broaden.

St Peters

Friends of ours used the Broaden Team to remodel their home from a single level to a 2 storey. We watched the progress of this build and was impressed by the high quality and standard of their work. We bought a new home and we decided to do renovations- without hesitation we contacted Broaden. Mark went through the process with us, once we had council approval, our dream home became a reality. Mark was always accommodating and went above and beyond our expectations. We could call him anytime of the day or night if needed. The Broaden team including Kyla in administration were very approachable and helpful. We cannot fault the Team. We highly recommend Team Broaden to anybody thinking of renovating.

Port Noarlunga

My husband and myself decided to build a second storey to our house to accommodate our expanding family. We found that Broaden was more than competent to help us achieve this.

Mark was more than happy to sit us down and talk about a reasonable price for the both of us. My husband and I thought that we got value for money.

We found that Mark and his co-operative team were very professional, trustworthy, and completed the project in a time that we were happy with. This is also highlighted by the fact that Mark and his team had to take time off work to avoid extreme weather conditions. With Mark being the professional person that he is, he came through out-of-hours to check on our house through these times.

We chose Broaden purely on face value, and one of Mark’s comments that stood out to us, was “I prefer to start and finish a project before starting another. This was vital if he was going to pay full attention to the house of our dreams.

Overall, we were more than happy with Mark and his trustworthy, reliable, and honest team. Mark was very considerate and approachable with our entire family and we are quite grateful for this.

Everyone that has approached us are more than impressed with the modern change to our modest house.

Noarlunga Downs

As first-time renovators we had no idea where to start. We met with several different businesses – both big and small – and found a lot of them impersonal and pushy. Then we met Mark. Straight away we really liked Mark’s honesty and the way he genuinely listened to what we wanted and gave us feedback. Before the conversation ended, we knew that Broaden was the company we wanted to complete our second storey extension. Mark worked with us to plan out our ideal home and made recommendations to us based on what we told him of our wants and needs now and into the future. He guided us through the whole process – from architect drawings to council approval and everything in between. We really like the way he didn’t rush us to make decisions and offered suggestions of things that would or wouldn’t work and what he would do if it were his house. Mark and the boys were prompt, reliable and professional from the beginning to the end of the project. They made it all look easy and despite a few setbacks and changes of mind on our part, built us our dream home within our time frame and budget. We loved the experience of building with Broaden and have recommended them to a number of friends and will continue to do so into the future. We can’t speak highly enough of Broaden!

Kind Regards,

Daniel and Cherie Clarke
