We'd both like to thank Brett from Smith & Sons Hornsby and all of his crew for the works just completed. We're very happy with the quality of the work. It must be said that Rab, the Tiler, did an outstanding job on the tiles. We have no hesitation in making any recommendations in respect of your company - everyone was friendly & polite in addition to the quality of work.

Dear Brett & Jean

Vispy and I just wanted to convey a "BIG THANK YOU" and express our appreciation to you and your fabulous team for the building work you completed for us.

You were always very personable and professional, and we could rely on you and your courteous and helpful team to listen to us throughout the renovations, respond promptly and act on our feedback and requests. These qualities are very important to us and made our building experience so much easier to go through.

Brett, we will be happy to recommend you to friends and wish you the very best.

Warm regards

Alix Help Interiors

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brett and his team. From the initial consultation we appreciated Brett's collaborative style, communication, and 'can-do' approach. We were able to agree on a fixed price contract which was important to us. The project has run exactly to schedule and Brett's team have been of the highest standard throughout, whilst very respectful of our family living on site during the build. We are very pleased with the results and as a designer in the industry, I look forward to working with Smith & Sons in the near future.

Brett, Mark and his team were amazing. They went to great lengths to ensure the dog & kids still had access to the back yard during the renovations, the site was always left clean and they were very accommodating with any questions or queries that arose during the build. I would have no hesitations in recommending them to anyone (and have already done so!)

Michael & Joanie

Brett and his team from Smith & Sons Hornsby were a pleasure to work with. We were always aware of what was going to happen next and when. The team from start to finish were always polite and respectful and delivered a top quality extension to my home. We have no hesitation in recommending Smith & Sons Hornsby and would be happy to talk to anyone personally who's considering using them for their building work.

North Shore Couple

We have just finished a large extension to our home (North Shore - Sydney). After Design & Spec stage we spoke to 6 builders and Brett from Smith & Sons was a standout. He listens, comes up with excellent advice and solutions to budget.
Brett's builders, and tradies were excellent - very skilled, great rapport and a clean-up each day before leaving our worksite
The build was finished early, exactly what we wanted on budget and well supervised. 
Highly recommended!

Greg & Kim

Just a quick note to say thanks to the team from Smith & Sons Hornsby for delivering a top quality result at a great price. You're definitely our first choice for the next project. Thanks again!

Greg & Debbie

The whole renovating experience was made as painless as possible; all of Smith & Sons Hornsby’s tradesmen were polite and respectful of us and our home. A top quality finish, no complaints.


I approached Brett from Smith & Sons Hornsby because I needed a verandah and carport built in keeping with my holiday house in an eco-estate that has strict building guidelines. Brett came out to look at the property, then came back to me with plans on how it would look and gave me pricing, based on progressive stages of completion. I went ahead with the verandah and plan to complete the carport and covered walkway in the near future. They were very easy to work with and I am very happy with the quality of the job. I would highly recommend Smith & Sons Hornsby to anyone needing help turning their ideas into a reality!


Brett and his team were very professional to deal with and the job on the clubhouse went really well. We would like to involve Smith & Sons Hornsby on more works in the future.

To Whom It May Concern

I write this letter in recommendation of Smith and Sons Builders Hornsby. We have had a major alteration and extension done using this company and  I can recommend them  highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of the renovation, they were professional. In addition they  were  accurate in the initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project.  The build was well managed as well as the sub contractors. Our job was done with care and the builders  extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. Moreover they never left the worksite in disarray as they vacuumed and cleaned the site daily.  Although our project took additional time  to complete due to some unforeseen circumstances  I think we have a wonderful outcome .

Yours Faithfully
