Excellent results, very satisfied

Having experienced the traumatic event of a fire, and seeing years of work and memories destroyed, Kennedy Builders raised a phoenix out of the ashes for us, my husband and I were impressed with Phil and the team in the way they presented themselves and the level of workmanship they used in refurbishing the building. Excellent results, very satisfied and highly recommended.

Jacoba and Klass

such a high-quality finish

We decided on extending our living space/kitchen area and chose Kennedy Builders to carry out the work. It is hard to put into words how the team at Kennedy Builders have made this project come to life and end the project with such a high-quality finish. If we have any projects in the future, we would use them again as they have made the process easy and simple to understand.
