“Simon designed and built a pitched roof pergola replacing an existing a flat roof aluminium structure. Given rough specifications Simon went about designing an ‘A frame’ structure in treated pine and colour bond materials. The job presented several challenges which Simon negotiated with professional ease, whilst at all times checking back against the original customer specifications. The job was completed on time and on budget with workmanship and customer service of the highest quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon’s work to others.”

“We employed Simon to construct a pool fence and gates at our property in Wahroonga, we already had some existing fencing that we needed to match and were unsure as to whether it would be possible. Simon had no problems in promptly sourcing the materials and went about completing the job in an efficient and professional manner. Nothing was too hard for him and his enthusiasm was really refreshing to see. Simon was punctual, courteous and very organised which is a rare thing amongst trade’s people now days. We know we got real value for money and have no reservations in highly recommending his services to others. We will certainly be using him again in the future!

My wife and I employed Simon to build our pergola. After struggling to even get return phone calls from other contractors, we found Simon a pleasure to deal with. He arrived when he said he would and was always contactable, even on his holiday. Simon was extremely accommodating to our time frames and his workmanship was to the highest standard. I would strongly recommend Simon to anyone.”

S Ballard Carpentry was recommended to us by an good friend to design/construct/build our entertaining deck and terrace. From the moment we contacted the company, to meeting Simon himself, we knew we were in good hands. Simon’s extensive proven track record in similar projects, great references/testimonials from previous clients, once we met Simon himself, that sealed the deal. We didn’t even get a second quote as we knew we would be very happy with his work. Simon was able to work around our time frames and was always reliable, trustworthy, on-time and respectful of our needs. From an initial concept and planning discussion, Simon was able to bring us from an ‘idea’ stage through to concept drawings with a variety of finishes. From his extensive knowledge and passion for what he does, S Ballard Carpentry ensure the entire process is carried out with a level of professionalism and quality not often found in the trade these days.”

“Simon was a delight to work with on our 3 decks (Merbau). Always on time, listens and responds promptly and very polite. The quality was high and Simon worked through rain and shine getting the job done without fuss. His attention to detail is superb and all of our requests were met satisfactorily. Extremely pleased with the result and in particular with Simon himself. Already booked him in for the next job. Highly recommended but need to book early! If only everyone was as good. 5 stars”
