Mr & Mrs L Dawson, Saratoga.
TDG renovated part of our living and dining area in Saratoga. They were extremely insightful as to how we could maximise the use of our space according to our budget. They knocked through two walls, installed a window picking up a brilliant view, and creating a modern flow through that has easily improved the look and value of our home. We found Troy and his team very professional, honest and reliable. We highly recomend TDG and look forward to working with them in the near future. Regards, Lindsay & Emily Dawson.



Matthew & Michelle Hunter, Conells Point.
Troy assisted us with some major renovations we made to our beach-house in Copacabana. Because of the prominent location of the house, it was important to get a quality job done. From the start of the process we found Troy very easy to deal with and he really took control of the whole process, making it very easy for us. Troy completed the job on time and on budget, and delivered the quality of work we were looking for. We were very pleased with the job and would recommend Troy to any prospective customers. Regards, Matthew & Michelle Hunter.



Ken & Faye Schindler, Umina Beach.
We write to say thank you for the outstanding job you have done at our home in Umina Beach. The professional manner in which the renovation was carried out from our initial meeting to finish was outstanding. It was a pleasure working with Troy and all of the sub-contractors. We knew from the start that your collective work would be of a high standard, and it was. The personal attention Troy gave us was gratefully appreciated; nothing was ever too much trouble. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending TDG Building to anyone who wants a quality job.



Mr & Mrs Delohery, Wamberal.
I want to say that Troy and his team of carpenters were the most professional builder carpenters that my wife and I came across on the Coast during our tendering process of suitable builders - Job: House Extensions. My wife and I were conscious that we needed to select a good builder who had a good name in the building industry and who gave valve for money and quality of work. During the time that Troy and his team worked on our extensions the quality and speed of work was next to none. Troy's team never turned up late, they always turned up when requested and never missed a beat. Troy admitted he was a house proud builder and this is shown in his building work. Troy helped my wife and I achieve our extension goals without significant compromises of workmanship or quality. I would like to thank Troy and his team for the work they did on our home, we would recommend them to anyone. Thank you again, Miles Delohery and Family.



R & N Taylor, Saratoga.
We would like to express our gratitude to you and your team for the recent renovation your company did to our new property in Saratoga. We have been so overwhelmed with your attention to detail in your work, and the way that you communicated with us through every step of the process. Most importantly we stayed within our budget and were able to achieve everything that we had wished for. We loved your suggestions of moving some internal walls to create new living spaces. It was a pleasure dealing with all of your trade’s people; they were all so professional and diligent in their work. We are really impressed with the over all results and just love our new home, thanks again. R & N Taylor, Saratoga



Q: Can you tell us what you wanted TDG Building to do?
A: We wanted our chosen building contractor to be responsible for the whole project from start to finish, arranging and supervising sub-contracting where appropriate and assisting with the resolution of the many "other problems" of a non-building nature that always arise from such a project. Mr & Mrs Sinnett, Erina Heights.



Q: Why did you decide to go ahead with TDG Building?
A: With all such projects you need to vet quotations in order to make your choice. We had other builders give us quotations in their various formats but that from TDG Building was professionally and concisely produced to the extent that it appeared to be extremely comprehensive. More importantly it was competitive and gave the impression that, here was a person who wanted to take on a challenging contract and wanted to win it. Mr & Mrs Sinnett, Erina Heights.



Q: Can you tell us about the project as it progressed?
A: I suppose we put some pressure on the builder as we hoped for completion by a date in the future. But progress was thwarted initially by our own lack of experience with regard to all the necessary requirements, especially in these days of more and more legislation and red tape. But everything was eventually resolved and the project got under way late, leaving the completion schedule almost "non obtainable". But we didn't take into consideration the fervour with which TDG was prepared to commit themselves. In the end, the project was completed by the date discussed and this is a tribute to TDG and their chosen sub-contractors. Mr & Mrs Sinnett, Erina Heights.



Q: What aspect of the project stands out for you?
A: Apart from the way in which hold-ups were negated and delays caught up as referred to elsewhere, one thing (of many) stands out in my mind. Regularly, Troy would meet us at the end of the day and tell us which jobs were being done the next day and which sub- contractors would be in attendance. We were always aware of who were there and what the job was that they were doing. To summarise, the smoothness with which the project progressed was, I have to admit, more than I expected. Mr & Mrs Sinnett, Erina Heights.



Q: What you would say to others about TDG Building?
A: From my experience and, considering this was one of TDG Building's most adventurous contracts, I have to say that I was impressed throughout it's progress. Always open to small revisions which all projects will incur, the way the Company performed is both a tribute to their management and, dare I say it, a tribute to our ability to pick the right one. I have no reason not to recommend TDG Building to whoever might wish to avail themselves of their services and am pleased to have the opportunity to make this testimonial. Regards Mr & Mrs Sinnett, Erina Heights.



Kate Boni & Phil Sennett, Yattalunga.
Troy and his team are very professional and the quality of workmanship is of a very high standard. Troy personally has been extremely patient throughout our renovations, as our ideas and plans changed along the way. Troy also provided invaluable advice and suggestions, in order to save us money on the whole project. We would have no hesitation in recommending TDG Building to anyone looking for a builder they can trust. Kind Regards, Kate Boni & Phil Sennett



Fay & Alex Lang, Umina Beach.
We engaged the services of TDG Building to renew all windows in a block of units, which we partially own, on the Central Coast. From the time Mr. Troy Gruden called to give us the quote until the time the job was completed we were impressed by the professionalism and the pride of workmanship shown by TDG employees. The quote for such a large undertaking was extremely competitive. The timing of the job was as per the initial indications and we were completely happy with the finished product, as were the other owners in the block. We would have no hesitation in recommending Troy Gruden of TDG Building to any prospective customers. Regards, Fay & Alex Lang, Umina Beach.



J. Guy, Norah Head.
TDG Building has done two jobs for us. Each job was completed within one day and the workmanship was excellent. In total TDG installed four large upstairs windows, three of which required removal of existing solid panes of glass; and one that required a wall to be opened along its entire length and new supports installed. They also built and installed awnings for each of the new windows. The whole process was completed professionally. Firm times were made for quotes and Troy always arrived on time. At the time of the quote, a rough timetable was sketched out and later confirmed once the quote was accepted. All work was carried out on the promised days. We have dealt with many builders over the past ten years, and TDG is the only one we have recommended to our friends. J. Guy, NORAH HEAD.



Kylie & David Gubbin, Kareela.
Dear Troy and all at TDG Building,   We are writing to you to offer our thanks at your professionalism and work carried out in our home.   You recently built our large back deck and we are extremely happy with the results and quality. You went out of your way to explain the job to myself and to put myself at ease with any potential problems. We were also very impressed with your professional approach and reliability being on time and getting the job done when you promised us.   We found everyone at TDG Building easy to deal with, professional and trustworthy and would not hesitate in recommending your services.   Our sincere thanks, Kylie and David Gubbin



Dawn & Michael Holding, Umina Beach.
We just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with the personal & professional way in which you carried out the renovations on our property. I was amazed at how quickly it all got underway and completed. A superb result of outstanding workmanship with attention to detail that we could not fault in any way. Nothing was too much trouble, things were checked and double checked with myself and my husband to ensure we were happy at every stage of the process and we are very grateful to you and your team for making our vision a reality. I have never met such a dedicated team and found you all to be punctual, trustworthy, hardworking and friendly throughout, and for this we truly thank you. We have no reservations at all about recommending TDG to others, we have already done so and we will continue to do so. A superb job Troy, keep up the great work. Dawn & Michael Holding



Mrs L. Lunn, Davistown.
Designing for my new kitchen was anything but easy. Choosing a kitchen company had its many concerns, but having done that, I was recommended by that company to Troy Gruden to undertake the complicated building work before the kitchen could even be measured. Troy proved himself as reliable, arriving punctually for the initial quote. He presented as knowledgeable and professional. The new kitchen required demolition of a load-bearing wall and relocating a 6 metre long wall. This would have posed a problem to many, but Troy confidently described what had to be done and undertook ordering and delivery of all the materials required. The members of Troy’s building team worked methodically. Engaging other tradesmen and collaborating with them relieved me of so many issues with which I was unfamiliar. Troy’s quote was so reasonable; I knew there could be no comparison. The site was always left safe and clean and the work was conducted quickly. I have no hesitation in recommending TDG Building to future clients. Yours Truly, Mrs L. Lunn.



Melissa Coates, Umina Beach.
To Troy, I felt the need, to again express my appreciation on the prompt completion of the work done on my residence. From our first initial meeting, I was impressed with your ideas and always following up on my calls and enquiries. I was comfortable with you to assist me in making decisions on my reservations. You made the whole process easier than I had imagined it would have been. It was obvious to me that you have a lot of experience and seem to give sound advice. What really impressed me was how your whole team removed there shoes every time when entering inside and took particular care with furnishing and personal belongings through out the entire job. All your team showed tremendous respect. I have never had trades men vacuum the floors and pack away there tools and belongings at the end of each day. To me, being a compulsive cleaner! and living in the house during the renovations. This really helped take a bit of the pressure and stress away at the end of each day. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is considering work done on there properties. Obviously I was extremely happy with the new windows, though it was the professionalism and honesty of a young man with a great work ethic that really impressed me. Thanks again Kind regards Melissa Coates Umina Beach 2257



Gavin & Emilia Knight, Umina Beach NSW.
TDG Building are consummate professionals whose building and carpentry work merits recognition and it is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation in support of TDG Building. We have known Troy and his team for the past 7 years and have had the pleasure of utilising their building services on at least 4 occasions - with the most recent renovation being our bathroom. On each occasion Troy and his team from TDG Building have exceeded our expectations and we have been thoroughly impressed with the quality of their workmanship, professionalism and integrity. We greatly appreciate the commitment Troy gave to our most recent renovation and for his willingness to meet with us on numerous occasions to make alterations of additions to the original plans. As the old saying goes, 'A happy wife is a happy life' and it is difficult to please someone as meticulous as my wife. So Troy, well done! We would not hestiate in recommending the services of Troy and the team at TDG Building to others and we look forward to utilising their services in the near future. Gavin and Emilia Knight Umina Beach, NSW



Simon & Jenny Hill, Umina.
We approached TDG Building to add a second storey to our home after hearing positive feedback from other clients. From the beginning of the project Troy and his team went about their work in a professional manner, and they were always available to answer any questions or follow-up with any requests we had. We were especially impressed with Troy's regular communication to keep us informed about the progress of the work, and he was always willing to offer advice and suggestions to us as first-time renovators. We have nothing but praise for Troy's quality of work and his commitment to his client's, and would have no hesitation in recommending him to other potential customers. Regards, Simon and Jenni Hill
