Testimonials

Read what our clients and partners have to say about Tyson Building Group’s expertise, experience and attention to detail. We’ve been involved in a variety of commercial and residential projects that showcase our ability to deliver work of the highest quality.

We engaged Tyson Homes to construct an extension to our existing home in Diddillibah. From Mark’s first site visit we knew that he would be able to complete what was a challenging extension. Due to the sloping nature of part of the site, other builders had refused to even quote on the job, but Mark understood the plans quickly and shared our concept. Throughout the build, Mark and his team were approachable and innovative with their approach to issues. At every stage of the job, Mark went out of his way to provide transparency in quoting and costings which built complete trust. 

The subcontractors Mark uses are all of a high standard and work together very well. We have built other houses where the trades constantly criticise each other’s work, but on this job we frequently heard comments regarding the high standard of work that their fellow sub-contractors performed. The result of harmonious subcontractors is a well-integrated, high-standard job.

When we think of Tyson Homes we think of a standard of work compliant with Australian Standards, a very high attention to detail and honesty. The Tyson Homes quote was neither the cheapest nor most expensive we received, but we are very confident that we have received value for money by engaging Tyson Homes.  We would recommend Tyson Homes to build, renovate or extend your dwelling.

Extension Didillibah

Having been a Consulting Engineer on the Sunshine Coast for 20 years, I have had the opportunity to have an association with the majority of builders on the Coast. When it came time to build our own home “Tallwoods”, we engaged Mark as our builder as I knew the quality of his workmanship is second to none. Mark exceeded our expectations.

Our project was a two stage build as we wanted to live in our existing house whilst the new extension was constructed. We then lived in the new part whilst Mark undertook a major renovation of the existing. During the whole time Mark was very accommodating and considerate to our family and went out of his way to keep us functioning and as comfortable as possible whilst construction was being undertaken.

Mark’s quality of workmanship and attention to detail was outstanding and because he was hands-on and on site everyday, he ensured the quality of all the other trades were also up to his high standards. Mark was also able to offer suggestions to alter the design slightly which made the end product even better.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark to anyone considering Tyson Homes as their builder, particularly if quality matters.

We have very recently moved into our new home at Mountain Top Court, Mons on the Sunshine Coast.

Our home would have been quite a challenge for your average builder as it was built on a sloping site, and is double storey split level modern Spanish Style.

However Mark Tyson is not your average builder.

Always on site, or never far away, no issue that arose during construction ever became a problem.

In fact some of the design changes that were implemented because of Marks input as the builder, were better than the original concept conceived by our designer, with the designers blessing.

His selection of tradesmen during his tendering process are second to none, not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but definitely excellent workmanship at the right price.

My wife and I have no hesitation in recommending Tyson Homes if you are considering building a new home or renovating an existing one, as we have seen both aspects of the quality of his skills as a builder.

New Home Mons

We are very pleased to be able to provide a glowing testimonial to be used on Tyson Homes’ website.  After undertaking discussions with Mark Tyson, Director of Tyson Homes in July 2008 to complete a large renovation on our existing house, work started in September with an expected completion date March 2009. 

From the very beginning, Mark, together with his crew of tradesman and apprentices, have insisted on a safe work site, met all timelines and most importantly to us, communicated on a daily basis either by telephone or email.  Although this is the first time we have embarked on a building project, we understand this is a rare quality.  Mark has at all times obtained competitive quotations on our behalf and when we have been unsure of what direction to take, we have relied on Mark’s judgment and extensive experience. 

We believe Mark has built our home the way he would his own and comments from contractors we have had on site have been very positive.  One said “He would have Mark build his home!”

If you are looking for conscientious, reliable and professional builders who treat the owner (and neighbours) with a high level of respect, Tyson Homes are all of the above.

We are grateful Tyson Homes took on our project.

We highly recommend Tyson Homes after the completion of our external and internal home renovation on Kawana Island in 2021. From the planning preparation process to completion, Mark’s professionalism, communication and attention to detail was everything we could have asked for.

Every step was thoroughly explained to us, Mark gave us options and offered exciting alternative designs.  Communication was constant, through email, text and phone calls, keeping us informed about what was happening with materials, tradespeople, timelines and prices. Mark made sure everything was completed to his high standard, met all relevant Building Codes of Practice and always put safety first, especially during these COVID times. It was piece of mind knowing all the tradespeople used were high quality.

We cannot thank Mark and the team at Tyson Homes enough for our beautifully transformed home.

We trust Mark implicitly as he cares for every project as if it were his own home.  His attention to detail and insistence on perfection ensures that the end-result always surpasses expectations.

He professionally manages each project while communicating with the client closely.  Mark takes the time to stop and listen and is happy to make changes as required, all the while assessing and giving invaluable guidance.

We thank Mark for making every project a stress free, enjoyable experience with results that speak for themselves.
