    Joe & Natalie – Repair & Prepare for sale (Newport)

    We recently engaged  Ben from In-Form Building to assist with a full building update to our 1930s California Bungalow family home. Living overseas at the time, it was difficult to find someone willing to work with us that we felt we could trust to coordinate all trades and work onsite to a quality standard. Ben managed everything for us across up to a dozen trades. His communication throughout was excellent, and he offered timely advice and additional services as needed throughout a technical refurbishment of all internal and external works. We are grateful we found Ben and absolutely love what he has done with our property.

    Alison – Balcony Repair (Balaclava)

    I cannot recommend In-Form highly enough. Ben completed a Balcony waterproofing plus some water damage to a downstairs neighbour and did a brilliant job. He managed the whole process flawlessly and made my life easier. He managed this whole project whilst I was stuck overseas due to Covid. He was easy to deal with and explained things thoroughly. I have referred him already to people and will continue to do so.

    Michael & Mandy – Garage Conversion & Roof Top Deck (Warrnambool)

    We undertook an ambitious project to remove the roof of our garage to create a rooftop deck, and to also convert a detached garage into a separate living area for family to visit. The project turned out so well, we were given an offer to sell that was too good to refuse. We were so happy with the finish and detailing of the project, we are planning another project and intend to use In-Form again for this.

    Karsten & Cheryl – Major Renovation & Repair (Essendon)

    We can’t praise Ben and the team highly enough.

    We have a 2 storey town house in a difficult to access site, which had been the subject of a lengthy insurance claim due to water damage and soil movement.

    The building had been uninhabited for 7 years and was in a state of disrepair that required a total refurbishment and repair of many structural issues.  A number of builders were invited to quote, but declined due to the poor state of the structure.

    Not only did the team rectify the damage to the roof and ceilings, walls and floors (internally and externally) but they also transformed the house to better than when it was new.

    Every floor was covered with either tiles or carpet. A new kitchen with stone bench tops and European appliances was installed. All wet areas, including a full bathroom, ensuite, powder room and laundry were redone, which included stone bench tops and new tapware.  The job was done at the height of the pandemic when it was difficult to get trades and supplies.  Ben managed everything, coordinating trades and making sure that work was done properly.  Particularly impressive was that Ben managed external trades and would not let them get away with sub-standard work.  In our case, a full concrete pour of the back yard paths and patio area was ripped up and re-done at no cost to us.

    Ben was also flexible by allowing us to change some previously signed off design decisions and we ended up with around 6 variations that ensured the end results was what we wanted.

    We are grateful for the professionalism and diligence that Ben and the team demonstrated in helping us to get this difficult issue resolved and we are both pleased and proud of the end result, which was an unrecognisable transformation of our property.

    Anthony – Apartment Renovation (Richmond)

    In-Form were great to work with. They took the time to understand my specific requirements, and gave me plenty of options and how it would affect pricing and timing. I was also impressed by their commitment to quality workmanship and making sure I was kept informed every step of the way. On balance it was a great experience. It probably sounds weird to say, but it was the absence of horror stories I’ve heard about that was the best bit. I got what I needed - a partner to see the project as a whole and see the dependencies and risks.

    Carl & Sandy – Major Repair and Renovation (Richmond)

    I am thrilled to provide an overwhelmingly positive testimonial for Ben and Sam, the outstanding Builders who recently repaired two damaged balconies and replaced two bathrooms at my house. Their work was nothing short of extraordinary, and we cannot express our gratitude enough for their tremendous efforts.   From the moment they stepped foot on our property, Ben and Sam showcased a level of professionalism and expertise that instantly put me at ease. They approached the project with meticulous attention to detail and a true passion for their craft. Their knowledge and skill were evident in every aspect of the job, and their commitment to excellence was truly unparalleled.   What truly set Ben and Sam apart, however, was not just their exceptional workmanship, but also the remarkable personalities and dedication they brought to the table. Throughout the entire project, they consistently demonstrated a friendly and approachable demeanor, making it an absolute pleasure to work with them. Their communication skills were top-notch, ensuring that we were always well-informed and involved in the decision-making process.   In addition to Ben and Sam, I must commend their incredible team of builders—Liam, Jake, Patrick, and Vince. These individuals were instrumental in bringing the project to life, working tirelessly alongside Ben and Sam to ensure that every detail was executed flawlessly. Their professionalism and dedication were truly inspiring, and their expertise in their respective areas of specialisation was evident in the exceptional results.   Thanks to the combined efforts of Ben, Sam, Liam, Jake, Patrick, and Vince, our damaged balconies have been transformed into beautiful, sturdy structures, and our bathrooms now boast a level of elegance and functionality that we had only dreamed of. Their craftsmanship has exceeded my highest expectations, and we are confident that their work will stand the test of time.   I wholeheartedly recommend Ben and Sam, along with their team, for any construction or renovation project. Their outstanding work, combined with their friendly nature and unwavering dedication, make them the epitome of excellence in their field. It was an absolute privilege to have them work on our home, and we are grateful for the positive impact they have had on both our property and our overall experience with the building industry.   NB: Actual names withheld at client request.
