"Thank you Trent and your team for turning my dreams into reality. You did an amazing job and we now have an awesome living space we thoroughly enjoy. Your advice and guidance was really appreciated as were the little things you did for us to make living on site throughout the renovation with a small baby as easy as possible. Trent and his team are easy to talk to and easy to work with, we would highly recommend them."
"Firstly, Trent actually turned up on the agreed date and time to inspect and quote the refurb on our kitchen, bathroom and loo. We had been chasing builders and the like...people who were regularly advertising in and around Hamilton that they were immediately available to undertake building projects. Sadly most of them never turned up at an agreed time, so this was points in Trent's favour from day 1. He then prepared plans (including recommendations) and a quote and also guided us to other suppliers or sub-contractors who could assist in areas not directly part of his own work. We explained to Trent that we commute backwards and forwards to Australia for work and as a consequence he offered to take control of the whole job in the form of being the Project Manager. He then scheduled a complete refurbishment to take place while we were overseas working, coordinating all the suppliers and sub-trades including plumbing, painting and cabinetry. Thus we left NZ with 35 year old unit with an associated, tired and out of date kitchen etc and returned to a sparling new repainted laundry, loo, bathroom and kitchen. The job included installation and commissioning of a gas fired hot water system. It was a complete transformation. Better than anything you see on makeovers on TV. This was for real. Keith Jamieson at Jamieson Design planned, supplied and installed the kitchen cabinets. On now living and using the kitchen, bathroom, etc, there is not one aspect of the ideas or suggestions put forward by either Trent (MACos Builders) or Keith (Jamieson Design) that we would now change. Communications with the various members of the construction team under the control of Trent was superb. Everyone was approachable and although we contacted various parties prior to the final sign off and agreed contract price, it was never a problem for anyone. We simply cannot give a stronger endorsement of Trent and MACos than to say you have to have full confidence that you can hand someone a set of keys and let them loose in your house while you are overseas unless you have the utmost confidence in what they are about to do. As a consequence, we highly recommend him and his team. You will not be disappointed. If you are considering Trent at Macos for any planned work and you want to inspect what he did at our unit as part of your decision making process, we'd be more than happy to coordinate this with him. M & G Brown, Aug 2018 "Trent & his team completed an extensive renovation & build-on to my home. I found him easy to deal with, responsive to my questions and Queries (there was a lot) and all round an accommodating tradesman. His team were awesome, on time and did great work. I felt they really listened to what I wanted, let me choose my own style, indulged my 'out of the box' idea's & worked with me to get the outcome I wanted. I would 100% recommend these guys to anyone wanting building work done!"
"Macos was the building company subcontracted by Huntly Joinery to install my retrofit double glazing. While installing the doors to my deck they found that the framework was rotten. I was informed and gave them the go ahead to fix the problem which they managed to fit in very quickly. Despite not getting a quote, the job was priced fairly and done to a good standard. I would use these guys again without hesitation."
"CDM the company I work for does building work for the ASB all over NZ. In the Waikato region we use Macos Builders. They recently did a job for me in Matamata. this is the feedback I got from the branch. Hi guys, Just want to say awesome job thank you. Once it’s plastered and painted you would never know. I have got the lads to check the height by going up and down the stairs and they said it’s great. I would also like to provide some feedback on the lad that came and did the job today, Joshua. He was terrific, he worked hard, did a great job and cleaned up after himself (He did a better job than our cleaners to be honest). He was personable and great to deal with. He is welcome back on our premises anytime. Finding good tradies who actually care about what they are doing and tidy up after themselves are very hard to find these days. What a gem!"
""Great job done by Trent and his team on my house. Good communication and he worked with me to ensure I had the opportunity to make decisions where needed. Very polite and helpful team working with Trent. Looking forward to working with them again."
""We used Trent 3 times as our renovation was staged over 3 parts, taking more than a year in total. For each phase we went back to Trent to continue the work as the high standard achieved throughout meant we wanted to keep using him. Trent has a team of sub-contractors for painting/gas/plumbing/electrical/plasterer/AC etc. that he uses who also perform to a very high standard. I recommend appointing Trent as the project manager and letting him organise his sub-contractors for the job as he only uses people he trusts to put to his name so the standard is also very high and the end result is very good. Trent has experience and vision to make suggestions that improved our build and gave us a better result than we would have got had we stuck to our plans, I would suggest taking his feedback on your ideas as there are often reasons to do things another way that us non-builders are not aware of. Simply I would and will use Trent for any building work I need in the Waikato area because the finished work speaks for itself. To use Trents own words our house is now "Looking pretty mint!"
"If I could Rate… 5 Stars for sure. We had an alteration with our door needing to be replaced. Trent exceeded our standards. Helpful, Friendly and quick to get the job done."
"Trent delivered as promised. He looked after the whole project, kept me informed, listened to my ideas and used nice sub-contractors."

"Many thanks to Trent and his excellent team of "sub-ees" for their top quality workmanship, punctuality, work ethic, consideration, and very reasonable charges. We unconditionally recommend Trent and his Team and have already booked MACOS for a further job."

"I was referred through a friend after seeing their renovations on their home and was really impressed with the job, so I decided to use Macos Builders for my renovations too. Very professional and helped walk me through what was happening. He provided great recommendations that saw the job done fast and efficiently. Highly recommended!"
