TESTIMONIALS

"Over the years, I have had built for me numerous houses and on existing houses purchased I have required renovations , but my best experience has been with Jon Penn of Build Taupo.

At all times Jon was professional and genuine. His positive attitude is outstanding and in times of (my) stress unflappable and everything was done on time and in budget.

Jon’s communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for him. Jon’s service went above and beyond all my expectations.

Would I engage Jon again? Absolutely.

I cannot recommend Jon Penn of Build Taupo enough, to anyone wanting to build or renovate their home in Taupo."

Above and beyond all my expectations | N. Smith
