Description  Obey has done building work for me for the past 8 years on projects ranging from contemporary design, to restoration of heritage buildings. He is currently renovating a property for me in the Randburg area. I have absolutely no hesitation in endorsing Obey as a capable builder who is absolutely trustworthy and hardworking. His rates are very fair, and he can either quote per day, or per task. He has done major structural brickwork, including finishing details, brickwork, screeds, removing and replacing windows, doors and french or sliding doors, and doing minor work such as relocating plumbing, and repairing ceilings.

Feedback  I have appreciated the fact that Obey is self managing needing only occasional site management visits.

Punctuality

Description  Built a wooden pergola on patio, put in a step on one side and at back door

Feedback  We are very happy with our new pergola area. Ernest came up with good solutions. The advice we might give is for Ernest to assess more carefully what is required, as the pergola structure turned out to be more complex than he initially realised. More discussion would help. Brickwork and tiling very good, carpentry on pergola was more complex and problematic, though it looks good, all-in-all.

Punctuality

Cost  2500

Description  Ernest scraped the wall in my kitchen which had been damaged by water and plastered and painted it.

Feedback  I wasn’t at home when the work was done so I appreciate his independence. The work is good, everyone looks great and the tidiness is on point. However, he did promise to come one day and didn’t communicate with me at all that he wasn’t coming.
