Please do not hesitate to use us for any form of testimonial as to your service and professionalism….you did a great job!!

Mike and Debbie

I have known Michael Sladden for many years and have always found him to be a likeable, trustworthy and reliable person. He has done work on my house on a few occasions over the years and the work has always been of the highest standard. Michael always turns up on time and can be totally trusted to complete a job he has promised with very little fuss including being one of the most tidy of tradesmen I have ever had. He has completed general maintenance work for me including replacing rotten weatherboards and window trim which required taking down many outdoor blinds and replacing them, replaced tiles in my bathroom, building a pergola and other general building work around my home. I consider him to be totally trustworthy and am happy to leave him in my home when I go to work. I have recommended him to friends of mine who also have been very happy with his professionalism and I can not recommend him highly enough.


We engaged Michael to repair our bedroom balcony as the load bearing posts were beginning to rot. On his initial visit he had a good look at what needed to be done, submitted a quote accordingly which clearly listed what needed replacing and how much it would cost and gave us a date for when he could do the work. He turned up on time, was very polite and just got on with the job, despite the temperature being in the low 30s. He also reused what he could of our existing materials and we are very happy with the finished product. If you are looking for someone who is efficient, polite and provides a quality service, Michael is your man. I wouldn’t hesitate to engage Michael again and would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.


We contacted Michael after receiving a Coastal Carpentry & Repairs flyer in our mail box. Having not come across him via a referral we were a bit hesitant at first but when Michael turned up for the obligation free quote he won my husband over with his punctuality, professionalism, friendly can-do attitude and inexpensive rates. The work Michael undertook was for us was varied: replacing pickets in our internal staircase, building sturdy handrails for our external stairs constructing doors for the workshop under our house and general patching and painting. Michael is obviously very skilled on the carpentry side of things but we really liked the fact he was more than happy to do other jobs too, it saved us from having to manage multiple trades. They say the sign of a happy customer is repeat business and we`ve just asked Michael to come back in a couple of weeks and do some more work for us. We would, and have, recommend him to anyone looking at undertaking some work.
