We were looking for a building contractor for our 4 bedroom modern design house with domestic quarters and 4 garages. Browsing the web for reviews, we came across Procompare and gave it a go. We were surprised how quickly we got sorted. 3 local builders contacted us in 2 days. Upon speaking to all of them, we went with Samuel. Although the project is still in its initial phase, I can say Samuel is extremely professional and we are very confident he will get the work done to a high standard and on time. He advises us on all aspects of the build and we really feel that we are jointly making the best decisions for our home. I can't wait to see the end result!
Living in a heritage area of Cape Town, we wanted to find a professional builder that doesn't cut corners. We turned to procompare to help us with the quotes for an extension to our 4-bedroom townhouse. Three building contractors called us, but only one wasn't scared away by the project. Which was the best thing that ever happened, because we can't be more amazed by the selected contractor. Really excellent! We are so happy with the end result of the amazing work that was done. Well done and thank you very much! We will call them again in the future. Thanks also to procompare!
Orlando's construction company did a phenomenal job for us! This was our first time using them. We came into contact with him through Procompare when we were looking for a building contractor to remodel our bathroom. Everything turned out beautifully. He called us literally hours after posting the request and gave us the pricing. He was very friendly and accommodating in his communication. Gave advice and showed he is really knowledgeable. The whole process later on was seamless! And the pricing, very reasonable. The workers were prompt, polite and professional. They were very respectful of our home. They also did a great job of being tidy and cleaning up after themselves! And the outcome is just beautiful! If you are looking to remodel any room in your house, give Orlando a call. Or use Procompare. You will not be disappointed!
