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!

Hi We would like to extend one side of the townhouse out by about 2 meters. It’s the side of the house with the kitchen, lounge, 2 bathrooms and main bedroom so this would be making these rooms bigger. Please see attached photo. We would like to add a covered patio with built in braai stand on the other side of the house which would be approximately 6 x 2 meters. Please see attached photos of where we would like patio to be as well as an example of the patio we would like. We would like to put in a swimming pool approximately 5 x 3 meters. Please see attached photo of where the pool would be. We need the building plans latest by Friday 13 August. We are going to the property on Wednesday 11 August at 5.30pm. We would like the person who will make the building plans to join us for this appointment to view the site and take necessary details/ measurements in order to make the necessary building plans and give a more accurate quotation for total cost. The building plans will need to be detailed enough for review by the body corporate. Please see the attached photos of what we have in mind. How much will you charge for the site visit and building plans? Kind Regards
