Visitors remark on the quality and standard of finish
"I am so pleased I put my faith in Versatile to build my home. It was a huge step for me as I am very much a senior citizen and have never been involved in such a project. The site meeting was 17th May 22 and keys handed over 17th October 22. Communication throughout the build was good which gave me confidence at a time when navigating supply and staff shortage problems in the industry were a problem. I have been living in my amazing two bedroom cottage for six months and just love it. Great design, warm sunny and practical. Visitors remark on the quality and standard of finish. No hesitation in recommending Versatile Builders Tauranga for your build."
We are impressed!

From the beginning Versatile were great!
"From the beginning of my contact with Luanne about getting a quote to have my garage built the team at Versatile have been great. Luanne’s communication was fantastic and her friendly, approachable manner gave me the confidence that everything was going to run smoothly. Plans were drawn up quickly and the alterations that I wanted were accommodated along with helpful suggestions to improve on what I needed. Garry’s dealing with the council to get building consent was invaluable and his suggestions were very much appreciated. The builders were great, friendly and easy to get on with. They even turned up early one morning in the rain to finish off part of the building. Les’ management of the build was amazing. His communication, ability to solve any issues, attention to detail and calm manner was the finishing touch to the building process."

An amazing sales person
"Jason is an amazing sales person. Knowledgeable, helpful, exactly the right amount of persistence and always followed through on everything. I would like to give him a 12 out of 10. The Project Manager is also deserving of 12 out of 10. Never appeared hassled or too busy to deal with any queries, yet we know he was so busy."
"We chose Versatile as our building partner because we had a great connection with Paula from our first meeting, felt that she ‘just got our project’ and trust her input. Paula is a gem, friendly and professional, nothing is too much trouble to ensure we have the home we envisage, and everything in the planning has been delivered within the time frames stated. Even last minute plan changes!!!"

Overall very positive feedback from visitors on the clever open plan, spacious feel and good presentation. Thanks team!"
A quality build
"Our experience was a very positive one and on reflection the people at Versatile performed extremely well in all areas. The remote location was dealt with very professionally and we did not feel disconnected with the build. Versatile did everything very well. A quality build where everything went according to plan."
