This is part of our first home reno series. Please remember to read our "Reno & Home Improvement Advice" blog before you attempt such a large project on your own.
Tragic to Magic!
We wanted to create a decked area that gave us ample room to entertain and relax on day or night, which also had a storage element below for non water perishable items like surf boards and the likes.
After measuring up to see what would fit the bill we included it into the renovation plans/drawings for council approval.
We then looked at how we would make it just that bit more special so added in a low maintenance water feature, lined the roof of the pavilion with some Tasmanian Oak left over floor boards, added in down lights to lining boards, placed a night sky colorbond roof on it so it tied in with the rest of the overall project and made it fully waterproof at the same time (originally we were going to have a thatch Bali hut roof but thought better of it as the deck evolved).
Other lighting added was LED spot lights in general including for the water feature and LED stair lights both on stairs and on side of deck above a raised garden bed lighting it and part of the garden up.

From our first call to Chris re a quote to have our fence replaced until the job was completed we have been extremely pleased. Chris was both very professional and reliable to deal with. He is a lovely young man and did a great job. 10/10!

Sid has built a perfect colorbond fence for us. He was knowledgeable, courteous and efficient with his services.The pedestrian gate is also a perfect match to our home.. We thoroughly recommend him, and his services, to anyone interested in getting a job done properly with super friendly and honest service. Thanks Sid!

Bryan came in day before yesterday 9th May and completed the job very well in a professional way. He took his time to ensure that everything was installed and fixed properly. He was very mindful of children and parents coming in. Me and my staff are satisfied with his wok. Also, the children are happy to see the new gates. If I have to recommend it then I would highly recommend to choose VIP for any fencing work.

To Whom it may concern, We are absolutely thrilled to have had the pleasure of working with Angelo (Ange). We were so lucky Ange was able to fit our job in due to a cancellation. Ange went above and beyond to ensure that both ourselves and our neighbours were happy throughout the whole process. He worked back during the week and was there on the weekend. The fence was completed on-time even though there was some lost time initially. Ange you are a credit to yourself and the VIP brand. I will certainly be recommending Ange and VIP to all my friends and family. All the best mate and Merry Christmas

Looking for a decent fencer is like looking for a good plumber, difficult. What makes Terry different to the others is he works alone and does the whole job with the same consistency and quality. He does not waste time and there is no loud music playing. He uses quality timber products and concretes in the posts. He also cleans up as he goes and leaves no mess. Some maybe cheaper, but I wanted a quality job that will last 20 or more years. I have had Terry construct 2 fences for me and would highly recommend him.

Matt did a great job getting the fence fixed in a highly professional matter. I can recommend him to others seeking quality services.
