John and Nicola – Major Renovation

I just wanted to send another note to say thank you so very much. I feel that in the moment, when a camera is pointed at you, only a small amount of info springs to mind. It’s only afterwards, now, that I think… why didn’t I say that… etc? You may want to use this for your website as I know there is text on there… feel free if so, but I honestly can’t talk highly enough about you and your team of people supporting “RedKem”. As Craig would say, very off the cuff… “well… we can do anything”, I honestly felt you did.

There were plenty of afterthoughts by myself and John and you and your team simplified that and made it possible, effortless! Your communication through the whole project was a credit to you all. You stuck to your word and delivered the goods. I’ve know plenty of people go through a build and be promised weekly updates, to never receive as many as one in every 2 months. Craig emailed progress on our project weekly and answered and questions or concerns within 24 hours. This is a huge credit to yourselves, as this I feel is paramount during a renovation. Your team also coped so very well with John and myself being on site so much! There is a time where our home gets handed to yourselves and it becomes your work place. You never once made myself or John feel anything other than welcome during the whole experience. John was there daily, analysing every little detail and you worked with him and his requests as a team. Never was it any different, your company was so accommodating.

The quality in the build itself and it’s finish is far better than I imagined. It is schmick! (love that word!). I love every single thing about this house and it was never just John and myself driving that vision. I know Craig was very particular during the whole process, as was Jeff during the foundation stage. I really feel as though we received quality on all elements along the way. We renovated at mid to top end range and definitely received that to our standards. It’s the first time we have took on a renovation project and your team made it very easy. We are not easy customers and have high standards I feel. Your team exceeded our expectations over and above that. The house has been matched from old to new fantastically! I honestly never knew you could still get half the stuff you sourced, e.g. door handles and doors to match the existing structure. Anything additional to new and old has been matched identically and the thought gone into that has blown me away. I’m still, 2 weeks on, noticing finer detail that shines out beyond my expectations. It’s such a credit to you and your team. You dealt very professionally through some tricky weather during the ‘none lock up stage’ and I have been more than happy with your schedule and work rate. You had a large team working on our project daily and made excellent progress throughout. I can’t believe how quickly it’s happened from start to finish really.

You never made us feel anything other than comfortable, secure and supported during this venture and we all definitely worked together as a team. Susan was AMAZING. She is such an asset to RedKem and will turn the finer details of any project into a beautiful, well proportioned, colour co-ordinated, clique styled space. She sources elements I have just never seen before and at a great price. Again she is so accommodating and quick on time frame. I would recommend all people using her in the future as she just thinks of and see things you just don’t see yourself. She’s very professional. Thanks for letting us keep our crazy dogs on site, for feeding them on occasion… and probably the fish too! Your team helped look after the place. We’re fortunate to have been through this experience with yourselves at such a crazy time in our lives. Four kids alone is challenging enough, let alone a baby and 2 year old within that count. We’ve been so time poor and have just had to rely on you and your team to come up with the best possible solutions along the way. We trusted you and definitely got the best and fairest choices .

Thank you so much. I hope my “schpeal” does you justice and you feel good about it all (even more so!) once read. Thank you thank you thank you… we are one lucky, happy family xxxxxxxxxxxx.

From first contact to completion, I could not speak highly enough about Jared and his team. This was our first renovating experience and what a wonderful experience it was. They were extremely helpful, accommodating, and no issue was too big or too small. We will definitely use RedKem again, and recommend them without hesitation!

William and Steph

“If you’re thinking of doing a renovation then we can highly recommend RedKem Constructions. From the moment we met Jared, we felt he was keen to produce the outcome we wanted. He was readily available on the phone at all times and frequently met with us to discuss the progress. His team are first-rate and produce high quality work. They were always easy to chat with and were happy to listen to any suggestions we put forward. As well, they tidied up at the end of each day even sweeping all saw dust. We were encouraged to look over any work and make sure we were satisfied with the work. Jared’s concreting team also produced a superb driveway. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our renovation – so thank you RedKem.”

We were looking to extend our home by adding a new laundry, master bedroom with en-suite and walk in robe (a parents retreat we like to call it!). We met with a few builders, mainly those recommended by friends. But we felt information could be sketchy and they didn’t feel right. Upon seeing the RedKem sign on a neighbour doing a renovation, we thought we’d give them a ring. We are so happy we did. From the first meeting, Jared was not only incredibly easy to talk plans with but he supplied us with every piece of information we needed to help our visions become an amazing new space to suit our family.
The RedKem crew were efficient, punctual, fantastic tradies with years of knowledge and experience behind them and really easy to communicate with. The quality of the work is outstanding. We would not hesitate in recommending RedKem to anyone who is looking to renovate or extend. They made the process run smoothly and on time. We felt that by having RedKem look after the build, we didn’t have as much stress. A big thank you to Jared, Craig, Mal, Andy and all the tradies, we absolutely love what you have created!”

New Build – Granny Flat

RedKem Recently completed a steel frame granny flat for us. We found that Jared was always easy to contact, replied quickly to any queries, and nothing was too difficult.
The team’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and meticulous attention to detail has given us a truly quality product, which they can all rightly be proud of.
We are extremely happy with the result, and have no hesitation in recommending RedKem for any building project.
(They are also cheerful, friendly, and easy to get along with. Great job, everyone!)

Deck renovation – Morningside

Customer Service – it does exist!If you ever need a builder give Jared at RedKem Constructions a call. Firstly, he actually returns your call within 24 hours and does exactly what he says he would – a rarity these days. The guys are amazing to work with, nothing we threw at them during construction was ever an issue and they even brought ideas to the table, one of those being our LED lighting under the handrails.

Thanks again guys – what a job!

Gaslight Bistro – New Farm

Gaslight 2

Our experience working with Jared and the team from RedKem constructions was overwhelmingly positive and we cannot recommend them highly enough to any potential clients. From the initial consultation through both planning and design phase, onto the execution and follow up visits, the team at RedKem showed themselves to be true professionals.Jared and his team made the process of building our venue Gaslight Bistro, as stress free as possible. RedKem set the expectation from the beginning of the work to be done, the timeframe it was to be done in and the total cost for the work. And true to their word, the expectations were met.

The quality of the craftsmanship from RedKem is of the highest standard. We were delighted with the finishes the team provided, from the flooring, to the bar tops, to the minor elements that were treated with at much care as the major features.

We would not hesitate in recommending Jared and the RedKem constructions team to anyone considering having building work done. Their standard of service sets a benchmark for the industry and the conduct of the team and the finish product are a credit to Jared and RedKem Constructions.

Bathroom renovation – Sunnybank

RedKem renovated our bathroom in June last year. As much as anyone loathes renovations, it was a pleasant experience from commencement to completion. Jared was always contactable and communicated himself well. A quality rarely seen in this type of industry. He was always on time and took care to protect or cover other areas of the house which may have had a bit of foot traffic. Tools were always stored out of the way and the guys always cleaned up. Not only was the whole process completed in the time frame stated, but also within the quote as stated.

Jared offered great advice to us during the whole renovation. Things that we’d not thought of or hadn’t seen before were a great addition to our bathroom. We’ve gone from a dated 80’s to a sleek modern bathroom. The quality of his workmanship is far beyond his young years in the
trade industry.

We look forward to our next project with Redkem and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them for any type of work.

Renovation – Coorparoo

Jared is a professional builder and tradesperson who listened to our needs. His first response is always ‘yes’ instead of no or it can’t be done that way. We were very comfortable working with a professional with that mindset and who delivered a project on time and within budget. And they actually cleaned up the site each day – believe it !!

– Jim And Jan Connolly


Kitchen Renovation – River Hills

We recently decided to undertake a full kitchen renovation. We consulted with Jared about the removal of a wall between the kitchen and lounge room to open up the space. Jared and his team from RedKem did the structural part of our kitchen renovation. We were very pleased with the result. They accommodated our requests, listened to us, got on with it in a timely and professional manner, cleaned up every day and the positive attitude of all the workmen was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Redkem and will certainly use them again for future projects.

FrameSteel Granny Flats

Jared and his team constructed one of our granny flat kits for a customer in Logan Village.

Our first impression of Jared was excellent. He took the time to learn our product and wasn’t afraid to give it a shot (or at least didn’t show it)!

As our frames are all steel, most builders are reluctant to build with them. This was not the case with Jared and his team. He put in a lot of effort during the whole process to ensure that the customer was receiving exactly what they needed and wanted out of their kit.

Jared was always a pleasure to deal with, even when everything didn’t go to plan. He was happy to work with all parties involved to reach the desired outcome.

The end product is amazing and the quality is second to none. This is a direct result of RedKem Constructions’ abilities, knowledge and understanding of the building process.

Frame Steel would not hesitate to recommend Jared and his team to anyone looking to build or extend.

We heartily recommend RedKem and the crew for building work. Trust is important to us – we weren’t disappointed by engaging RedKem.

We had a rear patio badly in need of repair as well as some internal work in a bedroom and stairwell adjacent to the patio. Over about a year, Jared visited a number of times to help us through a process to decide what we wanted and what we could afford, including visits from a certifier and a designer, and a soil test. The real benefit from this process was that it opened up affordable options that we hadn’t thought of yet, as well as taking anything unrealistic out of play.

The work was completed on time and within budget. The communication with Craig (the team leader) and Jared was great and the energy and skills demonstrated by his crew were impressive. The job wasn’t easy because we live on a slope and access for machines was tricky. There were no real issues, when anything came up we would talk to Craig or Jared and it would be sorted.
