Thank you Scott, For delivering us a home we love.From our first meeting, we had an idea of where we wanted to end up.Throughout the whole process Scott worked with us taking our ideas on board and adding some of his own.We are so pleased we went with your suggestion of adding the deck as it makes a whole other living area. When i think back to the dated house with the sunken lounge, nib walls and small ensuite we started out with, I feel we now have a brand new house not a renovated one and Scott and his band of Tradesmen worked tirelessly to make the project seem effortless.Scott was flexible and allowed us to add in extra work as the project progressed and accommodated changes we wanted. Scott was Always on time, ready to listen and worked to a pretty tight schedule which we appreciated. So thanks again Scott, I am very happy to recommend you to anyone considering choosing a quality builder for their project

Scott - Cornerstone Builders
We love telling people who built our home. We are so proud to be homeowners. We spent months looking for the right builder to renovate our home. The reason we chose Cornerstone Builder was his service and expertise in renovations. Scott went above and beyond expectations. Your follow up was very impressive. We were never made to feel like we were a bother, even though we had a million questions, literally!, not to mention we change our mind so many times as the place was taken apart piece by piece. Cornerstone Builders delivered a beautiful home and we are so excited to start building a future here in our new home even the kids love it that they won’t even move out. Thanks Scott

Building with Cornerstone Builders was a very rewarding experience. We found them very reliable with excellent quality of work. They demonstrated excellent communication with us (the clients) which was very important to us and we were always aware of what was going on with our build and we would problem solve together. Cornerstone were a pleasure to do business with and we intent to engage their business again in the future without hesitation.

Cornerstone Builders professionalism and creativity helped us choose them over others. It was their personal, up front and honest advice that made all the difference over the course of our renovations. The attention to detail, reliability and excellent communication of Scott and his team, made sure that our renovation project was delivered on time, on budget and most importantly, what we wanted!

I just want to take the time to thank you and your team for the great experience we had in working with you as a home builder. From the time we met there was an immediate comfort factor. You gave us your honest professional opinion about the job and also offered some design ideas which we took on board, it truly felt that you had our best interest at heart. The project originally started out only to have the upper level sash windows replaced, basic plumbing and interior painting. The suggestions you made due to your experience made a lot of sense and in the long run a cost saving (and everyone likes to save). You took the time to listen and we had mentioned that in a couple of years we would require the exterior to be painted, you suggested it all be done together as the materials (scaffolding) required to do the windows would also be required to do the exterior painting. If done at a later date we would end up paying for two lots of scaffolding. So thanks for that suggestion. I also got my air conditioner installed based on this.
It was fantastic to see how well organised all the contractors were and a great relief that you were in control of their appointments and work. There is no way that we could have been able to organise a project like this and delivered it in the time that you did. You kept us up to date with the progress and notified us who would be in the house and what was required from us so they were able to progress with their work. This was a huge task that we are very grateful that you took on. So now it means our house that we have not done anything too in the 11 years that we have been here has had a major face lift and it feels and looks great.
Thank you Chris, Libby and Olivia

If s always easy to give a ' Glowing Testimonial' when you've just received the Front Door Keys to your Brand New Home.
Well nearly two years later we would like to give that glowing testimonial.
"Thank you to Scott Zurcher and his family owned business 'Cornerstone Builders'.
After looking for quite sometime at houses for sale, we decided that we needed to build. A lot of people and friends said 'Don't do it,,, most stressful time of your life! '
We are here to say, ' Scott involved us with every part of building our home. We had access to our house as it was being built. NOT LIMITED VISITS'.
We added and changed major aspects of our home along to way without any hassles.
If you're thinking of building, don't listen to the negativity that people are always willing to share.
Talk to Scott.
Happy Home, Very Happy Owners

Having Scott as our Builder was the best descision we have made with regards to our recent renovation. Scott is a perfectionist but he is also patient, honest and gave us some amazing suggestions that resulted with the renovation outcome of our dreams.
The process of giving us a quote (based on actual drawings) was also a testament of his professionalism and honesty in the way he conducts his business.
The whole process was not only hassle free for us, but it was an exciting experience, and every day we could see the process of our dream coming to life.
We would strongly recommend Scott to any of our friends who are planning to go through a renovation.
Thank you so much Scott, and till the next renovation.......
Sincerely Art and Eva Abal

To whom it may concern
I am happy to recommend Scott Zurcher and his building company, Cornerstone Builders Pty Ltd to anyone considering undertaking a renovation project or building a house. Scott is an experienced project manager as well as a builder and ensures all trade work done on a project is to the highest standards. He only employs accomplished professionals and the quality of his company's work reflects this.
Scott was of great assistance in guiding us through the building approval process and acting as an intermediary in dealing with our draftsman, who Scott knew well. This enabled modifications to the job to be referred to the draftsman efficiently as and when they arose during our project. Scott as an experienced project manager was able to use his knowledge of the industry to advise us on structural, design and colour options to ensure that the overall design and "feel" of the renovation was maintained. Scott's attention to detail is reflected in the fact that he required a number of tradesmen to come back to ensure the job was always to the high standard that he expects of work done for his company.
Scott is easy to work with and is a "people" person. He readily and as a matter of course provided us with updated quotes and costings for the various designs additions that almost inevitably occur during any renovation. This prevents awkward surprises during the work. Scott documents everything in detail and we were never in any doubt about the cost of the changes and additions which we made during the project. Scott was always contactable at short notice by phone or email.
I was very impressed by the professionalism and high work standards of Scott and his company. forget the horror stories you may have heard about building - anyone who uses Cornerstone Builders will find the building or renovation experience to be as painless as it can be.

To whom it may concern
We knew that Scott at Cornerstone Builders was different to a normal builder. When we started looking for a builder to quote on our home renovation project, we started searching online as most do nowadays, and sent some emails away, not really expecting a response from anyone. But Scott responded the next day. Scott took the time to get inside the vision we had for the renovation, came up with some great improvements and presented us with a simple to understand quote.
Looking at the final result, we can't fault any of the workmanship. The finish of the job was excellent. But that's just the start of what impressed us. We chose to live in the house through the construction period. This meant that Scott and his tradesmen had to make the house child friendly every night, tools away and house cleaned of construction dust. They started on time were easy to work with. Like any renovation, there were problems and surprises, but at every stage, Scott kept us informed with waht was going on. Scott has the ability to know what will look good just from looking at the plans. he takes great care in the choice of tradespeolple he uses. Scott is a builder you can trust.
We would have no reservation at all recommending Scott and Cornerstone Builders for your next construction or renovation job. we just love the new home he created for us.
Yours sincerely, Richard and Melissa Grimshaw.

The work caried out by Scott and Cornerstone Builders was done with complete professionalism, on time, and extemely thorough. All work was described up front and detailed with great accuracy, generating new ideas we did not consider. The longe extension was even carried out in a way that we did not have to leave the premises. All work was co-ordinated through Scott, and even some minor alterations to the plan by us did not interfere with the timeline or completion date. I cannot think of any negitives around the work carried out, or the finished article, and would definitely recommend Cornerstone Builders for all building works.
Again, thank you Scott for a great job.
Sincerely, Kevin and Sandra Hall

To whom it may concern:
I could not have been happier with Cornerstone Builders (Scott and his team) with the job they have done to my entertaining areas around my pool, this was quite a significant job that was done with total professionalism, the workmanship and attention to detail was A1 and this meant I did not have to worry at all how the job was going to turn out and was thrilled with the result. I would heartily recommend Scott and his team for any building job.

To Whom It May Concern.
It is with pleasure that I give this recommendation to Cornerstone Builders.
From day one I was rewarded with professional advice and service. Scott consulted with me regularly to ensure I received the best value for money. He was consistently responsible and professional, and his ‘no-fuss’ approach never varied. He made himself available to me and shared my enthusiasm for the project throughout the whoIe process.
During the construction, Scott’s timeliness of his tasks was never in dispute, always having his tasks completed on time. The competence in which Scott and his team completed their work is a credit to him. The standard of craftsmanship is superb, and all that have viewed it has agreed.
It was refreshing to deal with Scott. his competence. workmanship, supervision, professionalism and expertise was invaluable in ensuring the successful completion of my house.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Scott all the best in the building industry and would not hesitate to genuinely recommend Cornerstone Builders to any future clients.
Yours faithfully, Quyen Lu

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I am delighted to provide this personal reference for Mr Scott Zurcher of Cornerstone Builders.
Shortly after purchasing my present residence at McIntyre Street Wooloowin in 2006, I engaged Scott to undertake a number of renovations to the house including:
- Repairing and replacing the front deck joists and decking
- Rebuilding the front staircase
- Building in an insulated ceiling on the rear deck
- Replacing the rear decking
- Retiling the kitchen
- Renovating the downstairs bathroom (tiling the whole bathroom, installing a vanity cabinet, basin and all new fittings etc.)
- Repairing and replacing a downstairs outside window framing that had been subject to termite attack
- Repairing and replacing a downstairs inside wall that had been subject to termite attack
- Repairing and re-securing the corrugated iron roof to the extent necessary
I confirm that I was completely satisfied with all aspects of Scott's work including, its quality, timeliness, cost, value for money, efficiency, cleanliness and the advice and suggestions he gave me. I particularly appreciated the fact that Scott was flexible in that no aspect of the job was too big or too small for him. All the work was done in a no-fuss and timely manner, and to a high standard - Scott takes real pride in his work and aims to satisfy. And the cost worked out to be very reasonable as Scott always worked very efficiently and assiduously.
I highly recommend Scott Zurcher of Cornerstone Builders.
Sincerely, Neal Macrossan

As work on our renovation project is nearly complete we would like to express our appreiciation of the quality of workmanship and high standard of customerservice you have maintained throughout the process.
Living in a house while it is renovated is never easy, with a complete renovation to the master ensuite upstairs and levelling up the upstairs bedroom floors the disruption and stress has been minimised due to the calm and efficient management of the project,. you have maintained good comunication always, thoroughly explained every aspect of the work and kept us informed of the work schedule and appointments.
We look forward to enjoying our beautiful,contempory ensuite which has been well designed to complement the style of our home. the very high standard of work in levelling the floors as well as other maintenance and repair work undertaken has significantly improved the look and feel of the house.It is such a joy to walk on floors that no longer creak and groan!
Inevitably when renovating, unforseeable challenges arise, in our case several additional maintenance and repair jobs were necessary, these were all carried out to a high standard and at a reasonable cost.
We would not hesitate to recomend Cornerstone Builders to others, from start to finish it has been a pleasure working with you to achieve an end product that meets all our expectatiopns while remaining within our budget.
Yours Sincerely, Annette and Tony Mitchell

We would just like to thank you so much, for the renovations that you have just completed for us. You transformed an area that was unusable, to the most amazing outdoor entertaining area, that most people only get to dream about.
We commend you on your quality of workmanship and we thank you, for the time and effort that you put into our project here. Above all, we really appreciated the fact that the extras that were put on you at the end, something so small as turning a very basic, small main bedroom, into a large, open plan parents retreat (ha ha), was done without a sidewards glance, knowing full well, you had so much work ahead of you, with other contracted work.
Above all Scott, the renovations that you achieved here for us, has literally lifted the resale value of our home immensely, and we thank you so much for the personal interest you undertook in doing so.
We wish you well in the future, with your business Scott, and would thoroughly recommend your honesty, integrity and quality of workmanship to anyone.
Yours sincerely, Donna & Peter Wappett.
