“Hi
I have had a great experience with Kieren from New Vision so far, his communication is excellent and his knowledge of product/service fantastic, and he will try and get you the best deal on materials without impinging on quality. Unfortunately due to service not being so great from designers and still working through purchase of Property and coucil consent, the build is still a fair way of. Kieren went out of his way to help me and gave me good contacts for other services.”
