Kevin, you and Sapphire Home Solutions have done great work on renovations and extensions at my mother’s place over the last six years. We’ve really benefited from your advice, problem solving and excellent building work – the house has been nicely enhanced. Thanks too for being on hand and keeping the projects well-managed when I wasn’t around, reliability is much appreciated. Best wishes, Rick.

Kevin has done excellent work at our place a number of times. His work is of a high standard, with great attention to detail and reasonably priced. And he's such a nice fella, too. The best in the business, in my opinion.

Mr Kevin Ison, our local builder, recently completed a renovation of an old shed at the rear of our home in Blackheath. The objective was to convert this rough shed into a studio which would provide a writer's retreat and, when required, additional sleeping accommodation. We are pleased to say that the final result has far exceeded our expectations. The completed studio is a fine tribute to the exceptional building skills of Kevin and his team. The workmanship is first class and his devotion to detail is evident, and his unfailing courtesy and availability at all times were a feature. The work was completed on time and on budget. We have no hesitation in recommending Kevin to anyone seeking a fine honest builder.

We have had the benefit of Kevin’s highly skilled work in adding decks and associated changes to our house in Blackheath. Kevin has been wonderfully reliable, with great humour and flexibility to deal with any challenges that arose. The result is is that we have excellent additions to our home and the knowledge that we could engage Kevin in the future with great surety that he would deliver within budget and in a timely manner.

Ron Bell - Mount Victoria

Kevin from Sapphire Home Solutions and Johan from Candor Handyman Services working with Kevin have completed several jobs around our home at Wentworth Falls including our deck extension and veranda. The work far exceeded our expectations as Kevin’s craftsmanship is evident in every job he undertakes. There were no short cuts and every detail was perfect. My wife adds that both Kevin and Johan are a pleasure to have around when they are at our place. We recommend their work highly.

Bill - Wentworth Falls

Kevin has been my ‘go to’ carpenter, builder and handyperson for many years. As well as some landscaping works and structural modifications (including removing a wall, repositioning and hanging doors, installing windows and a sliding door, raising a floor and re-cladding external walls), Kevin has created some fantastic, functional solutions to maximise liveability in my home, including loft and platform beds. Not only is Kevin’s work always strong, beautifully finished and elegant, but Kevin himself is a person of the highest integrity, who is a pleasure to deal with.

Customer Testimonials

Re the Recently completed Yarran Early Intervention Centre, Bateau Bay.

We write on behalf of our client and ourselves for the proficiency, courtesy and even tempered approach which your firm brought to the project.

As you well recall, not everything went according to plan, mainly due to suppliers. However, the quality of workmanship, attention to detail, your responsiveness, even under strained circumstances, we found refreshing and very much appreciated, in an industry which increasingly seems to delight in aggravation as an incentive to perform.

As a firm, nor individually, do we subscribe to that mindset, and even so, the work was carried out within goods time, all things considered and within budget and all concerned are happy with the building.

I am the Secretary of the Bulwarra Co-operative Society Pty Ltd which operates a holiday complex for soldiers at Terrigal NSW. Over the past twelve months we have carried out some major renovations to one of the cottages in the complex. Kevin Ison was successful in winning the contract for this work as a result of submitting the best and most competitive quote from a range of building contractors who we approached.

We found Kevin to be a very capable contractor. He is a skilled carpenter, a very competent organiser of his sub-contractors and an honest tradesman. He completed his work on time and to a very high standard.
