It is a pleasure to write this letter of referral for Sure Thing Carpentry.

Our association with Sure Thing Carpentry began in 2002 when our company Dune Australia required some minor building and carpentry work to be undertaken at our then Frenchs Forest office. The work involved required partitioning an office and enclosing an area in the warehouse.

What led us to commission Sure Thing Carpentry was that Stefan was licensed, arrived on time to quote the job, provided the quote on time and appeared to know what he was doing and even offered suggestions building and carpentry is all jargon to us so we needed someone who could understand what we wanted.

The work was completed on time, the workmanship was of a high standard and the price was competitive. We were pleased with the result. So pleased that when we moved from Frenchs Forest to Milperra in early 2006 we again used Sure Thing Carpentry to construct our offices.

The work at Milperra was more much more extensive and complex than what was undertaken at Frenchs Forest. It was no surprise that the work was again of a high standard, competitively priced and completed on time. (Stefan worked throughout the Easter holiday period to ensure the deadline was meant)

We are currently in the process of fitting out a trade showroom and Sure Thing Carpentry is conducting the fit out.

Dune Australia has no hesitation in using and recommending Sure Thing Carpentry. We take this opportunity in thanking Stefan for his commitment toward us and in making our job easier.

Yours Sincerely

The Forest High School has utilised the services of Stefan van den Berg on a number of occasions to renovate the Front office,create two secondary offices from a large existing room and renovating a large space for an alternate use.

On each project Stefan provided a service that gave valuable advice,was totally reliable,was financially competitive and was of high quality. I was particularly impressed with the fact that he was dependable and completed each assignment on time and within budget.

We will continue to use the services of Sure Thing Carpentry because of our positive experiences and I have no hesitation in recommending this business to others.

I approached Stefan from Sure Thing Carpentry upon purchase of a unit in Balgowlah. As the unit was in disrepair I required extensive work to be carried out. What impressed me at the initial stage of discussions was the level of interest which was expressed to me regarding my needs of the property, my lifestyle requirements, ways of increasing the value of the property as well as constructive criticism on my ideas with positive options to solve the problems.

I had no hesitation in agreeing to contract Sure Thing to the first stage of work which included hanging new doors, removing a wall to open up the kitchen, and the building of 2 built in robes.

During the whole time of work Stefan was punctual, provided me with up-to date progress reports, finished in the agreed timeframes, and also kept the unit in a state which enabled other tradespeople to complete their work., and myself to live with minimal disruption.

Because of this I also had Stefan build from scratch 3 custom blanket boxes which he formed into a window seat (solving storage problems as well as providing a functional seat), the complete fitout of the built-in robes with shelving and hanging rails. Stefan also organized for me a cement rendered to complete the new opening to the kitchen.

I would have no reservations recommending Sure Thing Carpentry for any work you may require.

The 3 key things which I believe best represent my experiences with the company are;

1. Dependability
2. Creative
3. Respectful

We can highly recommend Stefan and would not hesitate to contact him in the future should we require any further work. Stefan built a pitched pergola over an existing deck at our home in Forestville for us in April 2007.

We found Stefan very reliable and competent and all work was carried out in a very professional manner. Stefan kept us informed and updated at all times, deliveries arrived as stated as did Stefan for quotes and actual commencement of work. We found Stefan and his tradesman, Peter, to be very considerate and pleasant at all times. They were also punctual and tidy in their work at all times.

We have no hesitation in recommending Stefan and Peter and Sure Thing Carpentry, we are available to be contacted via Stefan if a verbal references is ever required verify and confirm this reference at any time.

I have used the services of Sure Thing Carpentry over the past 2 years. On each occasion I have found Stefan to be most professional. He takes great pride in his work and is a clean and thorough workman.
I have recommended him to others who are also impressed with his reliability and efficiency. Recently I have renovated an apartment as a project and Stefan carried out several different tasks including window, door replacements and work on ceilings, which were badly damaged.
He works well with other tradesmen and I would be very happy to use his services again.

Stefan has been know to my wife and I for some three years and during that time he has most satisfactorily attended to two projects, that of constructing a pergola on our back deck and corrected a water leak problem to our bathroom shower recess, which involved some restoration. Any additional tradesman required to compliment the jobs have always proved most adequate.

Stefan has always been reliable and most able. I believe he would not undertake a project that he could not competently complete.

We can highly recommend Stefan from Sure Thing Carpentry as he did a fabulous job building a roof over our existing deck. It was not a straight forward roof as a bay window and low eves complicated the project.

During building works, the area was always left in a clean and tidy state at the end of each day.

The end result provided us with a more functional deck and entertaining area.

We would thoroughly recommend Stefan and Sure Thing Carpentry as they were reliable, dependable, punctual and very pleasant to deal with.
