Last June we purchased a property on Albert road with the intention of extending the home and completely renovating the 1868 interior. After meeting and obtaining quotes from several builders, our neighbour Glynn Derrick stopped in and we asked him if he’d be interested in doing the project.
After having a look around he invited us to meet his wife, Tina who showed us around their lovely home and a neighbours which he had renovated. After a cuppa, a chat and eventually, a quote we knew we’d found the perfect people to entrust with our homes transformation.
We could go on for hours extolling this company but you wouldn’t read it all! What you want to know is…what was our experience like with Derrick Construction?
Glynn heads an amazing team. Each man is experienced and focused. They arrive, on time, every day smartly dressed and smiling. They leave In the evening only after a thorough tidyup.
We felt that they truly cared about fulfilling our vision. They listened to our ideas, often offering some themselves and never hesitated to say, “Yes, we can do that!” Glynn’s line was always, “Its your house! If you want it we can do it!”
And I assure you…they did!
We did not live in the house during the renovations. often we did not see the work for several days but when we arrived on site, generally unannounced, it was always a bee hive of activity. Work constantly progressed at an amazing speed.
Their quote was spot on. Glynn said from the beginning, “It will evolve…” and it did. Of course there were changes, additions and unexpected problems but each one was met with complete explanations and a fair quote. We happily agreed to stage payments which, we felt was most acceptable.
We’ve worked with many builders and renovated several properties. Never have we felt as happy and confident as we have with Derrick Construction. This is due, in no small part to Tina who runs everything from her office with efficiency, accuracy and a ready smile. Her communication skills are truly excellent.
We have no reservations in recommending this company for your next building project.
We would be most happy for you to contact us to see the end result…spring 2017

Just a quick letter to thank you for the work both of you and the team put in to building the extension, porch, patio and path. Both Chris and I are very pleased with the work and the patio area has certainly transformed the garden!
Whilst there was a lot of work going on at any one time we were very pleased with the way any disruption was kept to a minimum and everything was left clean and tidy at the end of the each day.
Thanks once again for being so helpful in assisting with all the changes/alteration/additions made during the course of the works.
Dear Glynn, Tina & Team
