MJ Bishop re-piled a 2 storey house in Hastings for me in March 2013 I was very pleased with their excellent work ethic and willingness to help the job go as smoothly and hassle free as possible, from dealing with the council building inspector (who had no issues, every inspection passed first time). To keeping the tenants happy. We had problems with possums getting into the house through holes in the subfloor which Mark & his team were happy to find and block up for me, touch wood we have been possum free since! All the old piles were removed from the site at the end of the job as promised, and the site was left clean & tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend MJ Bishop to re-pile your house, they made what could have been a difficult and worrying process into a stress free experience! Thanks Mark, Julian & Ryan.
Dear Mark Thank you for repiling the historic St Oran's Community Church, Ongaonga. We are completely satisfied with the job you did for us and appreciate the thoroughness with which the work was carried out. Everything was completed on time and according to the quote given to us. We would recommend your services to anyone considering repiling. Your work was professional and carried out to a very high standard. Thank you once again.
This letter will serve firstly to confirm that our house at No. 81 Joll Road, Havelock North has recently been re-piled by Mark J, Bishop and, secondly, to record our entire satisfaction with the results of that project. In all respects our contract with mark Bishop has been completed smoothly and efficiently, while Mark has kept us fully informed on his timetable and has maintained an excellent standard of organisation and tidiness around the site as work has proceeded. Our agreement also provided that he would arrange the necessary permits and inspection by Hastings District Council and all of those took place within the time-frames he had promised. Not unimportantly, the cost of the re-piling contract has been, in our opinion, a fair and competitive one. As to the standard of workmanship we can report that all of the structural improvements to the house which we had anticipated from its re-piling have been realised, so that we are now able to proceed with further internal alterations confident of the stability and integrity of the building. In this respect perhaps the most telling compliment to the standard of Mark's work was made by the foreman of the installers of the underfloor insulation planks which were fitted after the re-piling was complete but before the base-boards were fixed. When his job was finished he said to us "Well, I don't know who it was who has done your re-piling, but you can imagine that we see a lot of this sort of work, and a lot of varying standards achieved, and I can tell you that whoever has re-piled your house has done a beautiful job." As an unsolicited testimonial from another tradesman we thought that this was indeed high praise. Finally, we should mention that it has been a pleasure to have Mark, Jules and Ryan around the property. Not only have they given us their excellent skills but they have been unfailingly courteous, helpful and good humoured. It can't be too often that one can sincerely describe this sort of undertaking as good fun! On the basis of our experience we would not hesitate to recommend Mark Bishop and his team to anyone wishing to carry out similar work.
