I employed ElH constructions to complete a 3bed, 2bathroom extension to my property. Evan was extremely professional through out the build.
Evan and his team replaced the fences at our place. The work was done quickly, the team were very professional and tidy in their work approach and the price was right. Have happily recommended them since and would certainly go back if we needed any other work done.
We have had ELH Construction complete a few jobs around our house (BBQ area, new solid timber rear steps fitted & internal door fixings). We have always been very happy with the quality of workmanship plus the reliability & honesty of the ELH Construction team. We’d have no problem recommending ELH Construction to anyone.
