Our Clients

Feeling right about engaging a builder for your project relies largely on trust. We value and respect your trust and use it as motivation to ‘go the extra mile’. During your project, Sam and the team will be ever present working with you to achieve your construction goals.

Samadhi Builds is a company that delivers on what we promise! Outlined below are some testimonials from some of our valued clients.


Annette and Brendon from Eastern Heights, QLD

"We contracted Sam and his team because of his expertise, his attention to detail and the fact that he was so approachable.  He listened to what we wanted and made helpful suggestions.  While closing in underneath our house, building a large deck and major renovations to upstairs, we were still living in our house!  Sam and his team made sure we were not overly inconvenienced.

The work when completed was of a high standard and the house and yard was always left clean, tidy and secure before they left for the day.

We highly recommend Sam and his team for any work you are considering having done.  We are definitely having Sam back for the renovations coming up in the future."

Shane from Mt Gravatt, QLD

“From quote to job completion Sam & the team from Samadhi Builds were nothing short of professional, high quality Tradesmen

I have been a Tradesperson for 20+ years, and seeing these guys work was an absolute joy! Professional, quality workmanship, no short cuts, quality materials and best of all on time!  Down to the finest detail our deck extension and timber joinery door installation was completed to perfection at a good price.

Highly Recommend!

Very Happy! Thank you!”

Carol from New Farm, QLD

“We needed to re-design our use of office space in a renovated Queenslander. Samadhi Builds was recommended to us.  Sam and his team were extremely flexible and so easy to work with. We changed our minds several times during planning and a few times during the build as well!!  Sam and his team took that in their stride and nothing was a problem for them. They worked to the time they stated and all of tradesmen they organised for us were wonderful.”

Tim from Holland Park West, QLD

“I couldn’t recommend these guys more highly. The work was top quality, and it was obvious they weren’t cutting corners on small details to save money. They are also great communicators, which made the whole process go smoothly. They gave a detailed written quote up front and never tried to add costs later on.

They always let us know with plenty of warning if we had a decision to make or a new phase of the job was about to start that would mean a change in access to the house or a temporary mess (and they always cleaned up quickly). They took real pride in the work, and it felt like they wanted to make the extension perfect for us, as much as we did. Use these guys!”

Scott and Nina from East Brisbane, QLD

“Sam & Paul were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. When they bid they were active & interested in securing our business. They arrived to inspect the job when they said they would. They showed that they wanted to do the best they could making suggestions of improvements as we discussed the job.

It seemed they put themselves in our shoes & thought how would they want this to turn out if it was their own reno. When we received the quote it was competitive, but they went further to keep in touch & ask if we had any questions. As for the work itself, Sam & Paul were flexible to our schedule, they brought their own sub-contractors in to do their bits & managed that whole process. They also worked around the jobs we had going on at the same time with other contractors we’d engaged ourselves.

Workers arrived on time every morning do to the jobs & they got stuck in. They communicated with us as they went – so we knew where they were up to at all times & we talked through any decisions that needed to be made. In the end they come in ahead of time from their initial estimate. And we paid the amount we’d been quoted at the start. As for the workmanship, we can’t fault it, although they were available to come back & fix any defects, we found none that warranted their re-visit.

In the end we’re extremely happy with the result & are now enjoying our new living space. It’s made a great difference to our lives. Sam & Paul are exactly what you’d hope to get when you engage a builder. Thanks guys!”

David from Kedron, QLD

“The guys from Samadhi Builds were excellent. I took 4 quotes for building a large decking job and these guys were not only the most competitive but also provided excellent workmanship. The guys are very easy to deal with and have a very personable approach and are trustworthy above all else.

I was amazed to see that the guys turned up on time and would not leave until every aspect of the job was completed above my expectations. They certainly went above and beyond what was necessary. We would have no hesitation in having them back or recommending them for any work.”



Nick and Anna, Mt Gravatt, QLD

“Samadhi Builds undertook a difficult renovation of our deck. Not only did they have to contend with the deck’s large span and intricate design, the innovative materials used and time constraints, they also had to operate from a significant height. Paul and Sam’s team conducted themselves in a highly professional manner.

They were prompt, courteous and operated within the defined scope of works, including time and budget. Most importantly, they were knowledgeable, well-experienced and carried out a beautiful renovation that continues to receive many compliments from visitors. We are very happy with Samadhi Builds and have recommended their services to many people without hesitation.”

Theresa from Mitchelton, QLD

“We used Paul and Sam to conduct an extensive deck renovation. From the outset they clearly anticipated the needs and requirements of the project and gave excellent advice about how to best achieve the results we were looking for. The work was undertaken expediently, both working long hours to complete the works in an efficient and timely manner.

Each day they took the time to tidy the work-site and left the area as they first found it upon completion. Prior to a hammer being lifted they committed themselves to performing a job well done and upon completion they have achieved this. We have since asked them to quote on another project. We would recommend their workmanship.”



Karen and Des Whelan, Mount Gravatt East  

“We have just had a deck built with Paul and Sam from Samadhi builds and I would like to recommend the guys to anyone looking to have a professional job completed for them.

It took me awhile to find a good builder but the wait was worth it, the guys are very professional and well organised from the quoting stage to completion they are good communicators so we always knew what was happening. They started punctually every morning and put in a long days work.

We had not long added a dog to the family and Paul and Sam were very careful of him being underfoot on the job. The job was a little more than a deck with the exterior wall being removed and one interior wall also. Paul and Sam were very easy to have around the house. The job was finished in the time frame they predicted even though we lost one day due to heavy rain, it was also exactly as agreed upon in the quote.

The finished job is amazing and the yard was left clean and neat.

We are enjoying the new space this has created and loving the deck. I would definitely employ these builders again.

Howard and Sandra from Red Hill, QLD

"To whom it may concern, in August 2013 Samadhi Builds (Sam & Paul) commenced and completed an approximate 3 week verandah renovation to our residence in Red Hill.  In essence the entire experience was faultless.

Sam and Paul’s commitment to basic customer service principals was considerably appreciated and illustrated in the following ways; they are excellent communicators, they’re punctual, they swept up every day, they’re (understandably within reason) flexible with changes to quotes mid-job, they have excellent sub-contractor connections (e.g. high standard painter , plumber – both very professional). They go the extra mile.

We initially gave them a budget and they provided us a competitive quote (yet to hear back from some others!). Throughout the actual job we were able to collaboratively monitor the progress/cost to both parties satisfaction – no surprises!  Mid-job we did seek other tradesman’s opinions on the quality of the work and were comforted to know that these guys are actually very good at what they do.

In essence would we have them back again to do another job? Absolutely – without hesitation.

We would be happy to provide further detail over the phone and similarly, subject to prior arrangement, accommodate anyone wishing to actually visit and inspect Sam and Paul’s work."
