Concrete laying

30th October 2018

“Paea and his team did a great job with our concrete floor for the basement.
I did my research before deciding to go ahead with Tupou’s Contacting offer and I am happy to say I chose the right company.
It wasn't an easy task, but Tupou's team made it happen with a smile.
Paea knows his stuff, he offered us sound advice and cost-effective solutions.
We are very pleased with the result, would pick them again in a heartbeat.
Thanks, Paea and the team😊”

“I chose Frank to build our pergola which he did. The original job grew and the size of the pergola got bigger than originally intended but this never stopped Frank. He took it all in his stride, his workmanship is outstanding, very professional and we are thrilled with the finished product. The cost was very reasonable as well and Frank spent a lot of attention to detail. I am definitely going to utilize Franks skills in the future.”
