"Over several months in 2016, I had 2 bathrooms and a kitchen renovated by MH Builders, who project managed all the work. I am delighted with the finished rooms and happy to recommend this team. As well as getting on with the work, the builders & tradespeople were respectful and tidy. I was comfortable leaving them in my house when I went out during the day. Special thank you to Diane, Rex, and Ken, who were always quick to deal with any questions or concerns I had. Kind Regards and thanks again”

“On a personal level, I want to say an enormous thanks to you, Mike and the team – accolades to you all for being able to take on this project at such short notice, deliver a wonderful kitchen, providing high quality workmanship but most importantly, some of the best customer service I have ever experienced in New Zealand.
Dianne, you took a lot of pressure and stress off me during a difficult time and made it all seem so much easier (especially when I discovered the rotten floor in the laundry!). I can’t recommend MH Builders enough!
The kitchen looks fabulous – the new tenants are really happy, as am I.
Kind Regards and thanks again”
"It is with pleasure that we highly recommend the registered builders M.H. Builders Ltd (Mike and Dianne Holloway). Our contract with them has been to carry out alterations to make a self – contained flat (Hamilton City Council approved) in the downstairs area of our two storeyed home. As we did not know of a registered building firm, we located M.H. Builders Ltd in the “Yellow Pages” advertising pages, followed by checking their online advertising site. The testimonials that we read there, really impressed us. This led to a contract being signed and the required alteration has been extremely well done. So now we are happy to supply another testimonial to add to their list from very satisfied clients.
The alterations started on the day stated, the work proceeded very quickly, there was a high standard of workmanship plus co-operation with the experienced tradesmen, resulting in a flat that was altered to provide for our needs and to satisfy our requirement to have first class job done."

"We have worked with MH Builders twice so far on the renovation of two historic homes.The attention to detail that the building team has for preserving the authenticity of the houses has really impressed us. They have been readily able to source and use ‘sympathetic to the era’ materials and consider modern solutions to some of the problems encountered along the way. Mike and his team are approachable and pleasant to deal with and we have really enjoyed working with them during both of these projects. The finished result has had many positive comments from others in the industry and we are very proud of how both projects have turned out."

We contacted more than one company to obtain ideas and pricing to have our bathroom and toilet renovated. We found that MH Builders were the most thorough and professional in their ideas and recommendation on what we should do regarding the changes to the two rooms.
The overall project was managed extremely well and we are very happy with the end result. The sub-contractors used on the job were very pleasant, professional, respectful of both us and our property. They performed a thorough clean up before they left each day.
We would not hesitate to recommend MH Builders to anyone else should the need arise.

"We have recently completed an extensive renovation, where MH Builders were on site for 6 months. Even though we were living in the house while this was happening we never found this to be a major inconvenience. Their staff were easy to work with, always keeping us informed about the next step. Carpentry completed on the job was extremely satisfactory and the site was kept tidy. We would have no hesitation recommending MH Builders to complete any work on your next project."

"When we decided to extend the lounge on our house, we chose Mike Holloway Builders as Mike had personally done a quality job on a previous renovation projects for us. The carpenters engaged on this extension job were friendly and conscientious workers and they were only too willing to do whatever work we requested them to do. They were very conscious of the fact that this was still our home while they were working on it, and they left the site clean and tidy at the end of each day, which was very much appreciated by ourselves.
The sub-contractors were all professional operators and did an excellent job as well. All tradesmen were respectful of our house and property and we can truly report that no damage was done to our property.
Our lounge is vastly improved with this extension, and along with the new ceilings and insulation throughout the house, it is a much warmer house to live now. It is like having a new house without building a "new house".
We would have no hesitation in recommending Mike Holloway Builders to anyone needing a first-class renovation job done on their existing dwelling. "

"After doing some homework looking for a suitable builder to undertake our proposed house alterations in 2009 we settled on using Mike Holloway Builders he was very approachable and was more than happy to help with the alterations on our tight budget. Mike initially gave us a quote and then we were able to do some things ourselves like painting and decorating and he helped us get discounts where possible to keep our costs down.
We lived in the house for as long as possible as we were adding on extra family room and a kitchen remodel but basically left the rest of the house untouched. Mike was very good at keeping us in touch with what was coming next and not interfering with the day to day living of our household as much as possible. If Mike says he will get back to you he will which I really appreciated.
The workmanship was of a high standard and Mike really understood that we didn’t want the house to look like it had been added onto and used lots of tricks of the trade to help with the overall finished look. He has a very good friendly team of builders and they were good at keeping the building site tidy after the day’s work. It turned out to be a very good experience and we are more than happy with our new additions and it’s made a big difference to our family life. I am more than happy to recommended Mike Holloway Builders to anyone and will use them again if needed in the future."

"Mike Holloway Builder was engaged to refurbish our ensuite bathroom. We had a clear idea about what we wanted, but Mike had excellent ideas about how it could be done better. There were problems encountered in the rebuild which were easily handled by Mike and his team. There was a major problem of water damage related to one of the subcontractors, which did set the project back by some weeks. However, Mike’s communication was excellent throughout this and a sense of confidence in his ability to see it through was maintained. In the end, we have an excellent result and without budgetary strain.
Mike can you please give us a call we are ready to get started on the kitchen now."
"Mike Holloway was recommended to us for our ensuite renovation and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The workmanship was spot on, Mike’s team were great and left the place tidy each night despite ripping gib out etc. The sub trades (plumbers, electrician and shower installer) all arrived as per schedule and having dreaded the drama of renovating we are confident to do it again.
I have subsequently recommended Mike to friends and they are equally happy."
"We used Mike for a renovation project. He turned up or called when he said he would; found solutions to ideas or challenges; oversaw (and chased at times) the other contractors involved and was conscious of the fact that money was a limited resource. His team always left the site tidy and safe. I would recommend him and use him again if we needed a builder/project manager. Thanks Mike."
"Early 2010 plans were finalized at Zip Plumbing & Bathroom Supplies to undertake a major renovation of our retail bathroom showroom. We decided that the best time to do this was winter 2010 as this is normally a quieter time for visitors to our showroom. I decided to ask Mike Holloway to be the major contractor for this project. Our requirements were that we minimized the interruption to both business and to the four Zip Showroom Staff; that the project would be completed within a tight timeframe (ten weeks); that we kept within our budget; and that the quality of workmanship was always at a high standard befitting the quality image we wanted our showroom to convey.
Alterations usually present challenges which can’t be foreseen looking at plans and don’t become obvious until walls are dismantled. We had some of those but Mike has the ability to present solutions so the project continued without serious interruption or cost blow out. The project was completed on time, on budget, and with minimal disruption to the business and to the staff.
I found Mike to always be available, to be honest, well organized, to provide options for any problems that arose, and to lead a team of skilled trade’s people who were very good to work with every day. I was very pleased with the high quality of the work and the finished result.
We often get asked by our showroom customers for referrals for builders who specialize in the bathroom renovation market. Mike Holloway is always given as a referral because we have full confidence that Mike will provide a professional service to our customers."

"In this age when mediocrity appears to be the acceptable norm it has been a real pleasure to have had Mike Holloway Builders Limited tradesmen and sub-contractors undertake a renovation project for us to an exceptionally high standard and at a cost well within the original estimate.
Mike Holloway, along with his wife Dianne, project managed the job very closely and as result we are extremely satisfied with the standard of the work undertaken.
At all times the tradesmen employed on the project were very pleasant, courteous and above all respectful of both us and our property, This includes doing a through clean up before they left each day. Mike Holloway and his team are to be highly commended for their exceptional work ethics."
