We had the pleasure to deal with David McIntosh while looking at building a 3 car garage and substantial fence at the front of our property.

David was referred to us via an Architect in Cairns although we live in Port Douglas it was no issue for David to come and work up here. We had contacted around five builders who all seemingly had very little professionalism and that is where David surpassed them in leaps and bounds. From first contact we felt comfortable putting everything in his hands and with plans drawn up, approvals done, builders contract signed and a hand shake we were into it. 

David McIntosh is now the builder we recommend through our property care taking business for any major works or renovations.

McIntosh Builders were recommended to us by a friend.

Dave proved there are builders that do turn up, answer the phone and email a quote through quickly. Whilst undertaking our car port extension, we received excellent advice about how to improve the look, as well as adding extras, such as metal brackets for kayaks etc that were not on the original plans.

We have recommended McIntosh Builders to others and will use them again ourselves for the next part of our house renovation.

I have used David on a number of occasions for some substantial renovations on my home. I am always impressed with his professionalism, reliability and attention to detail, words you don’t often hear in the building industry. Renovating is always difficult as there is the potential for undiscovered issues to crop up as work progresses. When this has occurred David has always been very helpful, offering multiple solutions to allow us to make the best possible decision. Plan to use David for a lot more work, can’t speak highly enough of his attitude and skills.

I approached McIntosh builders to pull down an small exiting patio to be replaced with a much larger outdoor under-cover area. Minor problem was a tight budget to work with, but David McIntosh and his staff could not have been more helpful to make it all fit together and still come up with exactly what I hoped for.

The roofing, ceiling and guttering took no more than two days and at the end of each day a clean swept work area was left behind, so I could enjoy my breakfast outside until the morning-shift would quietly tiptoe through the gate.

I am absolutely thrilled with the end result , thank you Dave, Peta and the crew.

We were extremely happy with this work. David is a very pleasant person, and was easy to work with. His attention to detail, combined with a good work ethic, made for a good outcome on the project. His suggestions for improvements on the original plan were well thought out, and the extension was much improved by this.
