• Rick's ability to anticipate, manage and resolve problems ensured for a smooth and worry free experience. His professionalism yet ever-so friendly and approachable manner at all times was hassle free and acommodating.

    His eye for details, finish and craftmanship is second to none, and I believe, can not easily be surpassed. Everything about the house was quality and of a fabulous standard that replicates the personal pride that he and his workmen took in their craftmanship.

  • On a professional basis we confirm that we have clients who are domiciled outside New Zealand who have employed Mr Pettit in respect to the construction of a new dwelling in this district and whom we understand to be more than satisfied with the work undertaken by him on their behalf.

  • Sarah and I were highly delighted to have acquired the home and were delighted with the finished result. The standard of finish was very good and completed alteration maintained the strong character of the old while comfortably blending into the new. We loved the private indoor/outdoor friendly living style Rick's design skills had created.

  • In my forty years experience of letting contracts at various times Rick has the singular distinction on not having come up with cost over runs two times out of two.

    His intelligent input has been much appreciated on both contracts, as been his intelligence off the job.

  • We are delighted with the house that Rick has built for us. The house was designed by Preston Stevens and Rick and Preston have worked together to create a house that we can find no fault with. Rick and his team worked on a difficult site which incorporated a lot of different building materials - wood, polished block, concrete and tiles and very large expansive windows. Friends observing the progress of the construction of the house have commented on the quality of the build and we are extremely happy with the finished details.

    Rick and his team are particularly honest and hard working and he has excellent sub-contractors. We thoroughly recommend Rick to anyone contemplating building.
