We engaged Finch Constructions to build a master suite (bedroom/sitting area, ensuite and WIR) onto our existing home. We also wanted to update our existing lounge/dining area by re-tiling, and replacing the wooden concertina doors with double glazed sliding panels. We also wanted to move and extend our rainwater harvesting. Paul helped us flesh out and refine our plans with practical suggestions. Gabby and the admin team provided excellent support with product samples, documentation and approval processes. Initial consultation, quotes, approval and completion occurred over 2020-21 and needed to meet the requirements of the government Home Building grants scheme. This was a difficult time in the construction industry with shortages of materials and trades as well as a Covid lockdown. Finch met the challenges. Chris oversaw scheduling and supervision of trades, managing with care and attention to detail. He also provided valuable suggestions about materials and finishes. We are very happy with the final result. The quality of the build and finish is excellent. It is a beautiful space. We would highly recommend Finch Constructions.
I cannot say enough how happy we were with the result. Paul’s eye for detail and knowledge of building is seemingly endless. Tom, the project manager, kept us informed of everything that went on throughout the build – he was incredibly professional and easy to deal with. All aspects of the process were well explained and the team at Finch Constructions were more than willing to work with us on any changes that we wanted to make along the way.
Overall there was a co-ordinated team of professional trades people that went about the task with clockwork precision. Gabby was a great source of information, always willing to point us in the right direction in terms of style choices for the various components of the build. I commend Finch Constructions to anyone considering renovation, extension or building.
I have recently used Finch Constructions for a full renovation on a house in Pasadena. It was a pleasure to deal with an experienced team of professionals lead by Paul. Paul is a classic ‘old school’ experienced builder, full of great practical advice and good ideas.
Paul quickly came to terms with what we were trying to do and gave us great advice along the journey. Our objectives quickly gelled into a plan and then a fixed price quote. As I was not living nearby, communication was key. Paul’s office manager Gabby was great at sending us regular updates, checking in on key decisions and documenting everything clearly and quickly.
I was very pleased that the timelines that were promised were kept, even with the usual level of building surprises. When issues were found along the way, a range of solutions were offered and variations quickly documented and agreed.
Paul’s team of trades did a great job and were co-ordinated seamlessly. The workmanship was to a high standard and any concerns properly addressed quickly and professionally.
I am happy to say that it was a real pleasure dealing with Finch Constructions. I expected this project to be stressful, complex and difficult to complete from another city. I am really pleased that it turned out to be an easy and fun experience where we created a significant property transformation that I was proud to be part of.

When it comes to building or renovating there is a significant investment of time and money but the most important outlay is trust, without it, the rest is at risk.
We had conversations and quotes from four building construction groups before working with Finch.
Four projects later (main bathroom, oversized en-suite bathroom, awesome laundry and full house exterior refresh) – I couldn’t use or recommend anyone else.
Paul is a fountain of knowledge in Adelaide, patient and pragmatic if there is a way to achieve almost anything, Paul will know how best to achieve it.
Tom’s level of attention to detail and care for a high quality finish – you know, he is looking after your home as though it was his own. Communicative, providing highly effective leadership and coordination of all works we simply didn’t have the stress that so many people experience in renovating. Queries were answered promptly, and anything that did come up was resolved quickly and efficiently.
Gabby’s customer service and advice hit the mark every time – incredibly resourceful and knowledgeable in local industry contacts and providers – questions and detailing finalising to get the right product and the right look, she accurately deploys the options and sources in a timely fashion to ensure smooth running of the project from start to completion.
Using only the best quality craftsman and trades in direct and subcontracting, you know the project will have that level of finish above and beyond, taking the standard to prestige through skilful execution.
Many thanks to everyone who worked with us on the house but especially Paul, Gabby, Tom and Jarrod – super stoked with end result!
— Tony & Bronwyn
Thanks to Paul, Gabby and Tom for their first-class work renovating our home.
We are very pleased with the results, are grateful for their advice throughout and their efforts to achieve our outcomes whilst keeping within our budget.
They patiently worked around us as we remained in our home throughout the build, and made it all look easy (even when it definitely wasn’t).
We would recommend the team at Finch to everyone and will continue to use them for many more of our ongoing projects!
— Hayley & Stuart
From day one we were impressed with Paul and his team working on our extension. The organisation and communication we received along the way made for a smooth process. We were always kept in the loop with what was happening from day to day.
Having just had a baby we thought we were mad trying to renovate at the same time but we were not inconvenienced in anyway and were able to stay in our home throughout the process.
Paul made some of our decisions a lot easier for us and with his knowledge and experience a few last minute changes on our part were of no trouble to Paul and he came up with adjustments accordingly.
We felt that our home was in the best hands and put all our trust in Paul and the team when we were not there.
We have highly recommend Finch Constructions to friends and family already.
I would like to say my experience with Finch Constructions was very good considering that I used your company because a job done installing air conditioning in my home by another business was not good, resulting in water damage to my home.
I would like to thank Tom who oversaw my repairs. He was professional all the way and all the tradies involved, and to the Finch office staff who helped me promptly when I dropped in with any queries or help with paperwork.
— Rohan & Anita
We cannot speak highly enough about the work that you have carried out for us on our home. The whole team provided excellent service which was of high quality. Finch were good at keeping us informed along the way. We were also very impressed that you are able to complete the job in a prompt manner.
The experience of Paul and his tradesmen really shines through. Nothing was too difficult and they were able to introduce many ideas that complimented the original design of the home.
Overall, we can’t say enough about your company and crew Paul. On the occasions we weren’t home, we felt secure in knowing it was your team looking after things. We will (and have already) highly recommend you at any time that construction comes up. It has been such a good experience and outcome for us. Thank you, thank you!!!
— Greg & Rae
We have a local heritage listed house and Paul Finch and his skilled trades have just completed two quiet complex restoration projects for us. We can recommend this company for the quality of their work and attention to detail, open and friendly communications and timely reporting of progress. We believe that we had a good value for money.
— Darren & Suu
We recently had an upstairs extension done with Finch Constructions and we would happily recommend them to anyone! From start to finish to entire process was as painless as we could have hoped for, including getting all the plans done, council approvals etc. When the building started the Finch team were extremely easy to deal with, friendly and well scheduled, and above all when we asked them to take care of a couple of extras, they had no problems and helped us out. On top of that the majority of the heavy building was finished in just two weeks! (The initial estimate was a 6-8 week job). I have already recommended them to a few people and if anyone starts talking to me about doing any building work, I without hesitation tell them they should give Paul a call. We are more than happy with the whole project.
— Adam & Dona
We highly recommend the team at Finch Constructions. They worked with us and our architect to understand what we wanted, then delivered an excellent product, exactly what we wanted, on time and with the minimum of fuss. We are absolutely delighted with both the process and the result. Paul was always available, provided excellent advice, managed the trades extremely efficiently and no detail or issue was too small or too troublesome for him. Marcus is a skilled craftsman and delivered the excellent on-site product. Gabby was a delight to deal with, following up all of our questions and queries promptly and efficiently. Overall, the service and attention to detail from the entire team, including the trades, was professional, reliable and personal – far beyond anything we expected. Finch Constructions made what could have been the traumatic experience of renovating & extending a house while living in it with young children as pain free and quick as possible. Aside from the high-quality delivered product, what really stood out was the fact that everyone who came on site showed tremendous respect for us and our property – the garden was not damaged at all! Many, many thanks to Paul, Marcus, Gabby and the team for the wonderful extension to our home.
— Sam & Julia
Many people describe building or renovating as a “stressful” life event. I have to say that our renovation has been anything but, and that has been due to the extraordinary team that is Finch Constructions. The entire team is a powerhouse of prompt efficiency. They were always one step ahead of me the entire build, and absolutely nothing was too difficult. The attention to detail throughout every stage of the build was amazing, and the high level of pride taken in their work was obvious to all. Paul Finch has not only got a talented team of tradies working for him but they are also extremely friendly and easy to get along with. Special mention to Gabby for her amazing efficiency with everything admin related, Marty for his focused and careful carpentry, and Marcus for his ability to do everything and anything. Paul Finch and his team have been a stand out choice for us and we would highly recommend their services.
— Gael & Dean
We couldn’t be happier with the transformation of our home. After selecting products and finalising our list with Routleys we sought quotes from builders recommended by them. Before the last quote was in, we had settled on Finch Constructions. Paul’s approach to our immediate and future needs was impressive and his attention to detail was the decider. Work progressed smoothly and the program provided was so helpful- everyone knew when and which trade would be working on a particular day, this made it easy to continue our usual daily living with minor disruption. Throughout the renovations, Paul was always available and very hands-on. Morning site checks ensured tradespeople were following his well set out plans, each job as finished was inspected and any imperfection noted and attended to. Our bathrooms, laundry and kitchen are beautiful and the quality and finish is outstanding. The newly laid wooden flooring and freshly painted rooms have given our home a breath of fresh air. We highly recommend Finch Constructions.
— Robin & NickyWe cannot speak highly enough of Finch Construction. A renovation can be daunting, particularly merging an established 100 year old house with a modern extension as in our case, but from the initial meeting to discuss our options and Finch Construction’s capabilities, we were very much at ease. Professional, courteous, efficient and skilled, both the renovations to the existing house and the extension were completed to a high level of finish and in a timely manner. We would also pick out the various trades employed as meeting Finch’s and our own high standards, with each and every one demonstrating dedication and pride in their finishes. Under the oversight of Paul and with the planning and organisation of Gabby, all ran smoothly. A family friendly builder who delivered an above expectation project, on time and on budget, and managed to do so with a strong rapport continuing through the entire build. We cannot recommend Paul Finch and his team more highly.
— SylviaPaul, Marcus and the Finch Constructions team took over from another builder to complete an extension and renovation of my property. They methodically fixed all the problems and came up with extra ideas and suggestions for improvements. Nothing was too hard for them, they were always available and consulted with me throughout the process. Their professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail shone through and the house looks wonderful. The Finch Constructions team worked tirelessly to meet deadlines and deliver an outstanding result. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone.
— Tim & NicoleWe sincerely appreciate the great work of Paul and the Finch Constructions team in creating such a fabulous extension and renovation that was delivered to the highest quality and on budget. A stand out for us was the constant, clear and pro-active communication between Paul his team and ourselves. We would definitely recommend their services without any hesitation.
— ISMAPNG – AustraliaWe have worked with Finch Constructions on two large building projects. On both occasions we found the entire team to be professional, courteous and hardworking. The ‘finish’ on both projects was outstanding in terms of quality, and their willingness to go that extra mile was really appreciated. Both projects finished ahead of schedule and on budget. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.
— Vincent & SallyWe are so happy we found and used Finch Constructions to restore our 1880’s period home and build a modern open plan extension on to the back of the existing house. From our initial meeting with Paul we knew he would build our home to a high standard. His knowledge and attention to detail are what set him apart from the other applicants to build and renovate our home. The period features he wanted to reinstall into our home that had been neglected or removed by past owners have restored our house into the grand stature it once was. Finch Constructions work and products supplied was of the highest quality and no doubt our home will last for another 130 years. The Finch Construction’s are always contactable to answer any questions and to help with selections. The quality and knowledge of the contractors was impeccable. I can say we have our dream home with all thanks to the team at Finch Constructions.
— Elanna & Brian ( Directors of Bardrill )We engaged Finch Constructions twice recently to undertake major renovations of commercial premises. We wish to thank Paul and his team for their organisational skills, quality of workmanship plus wise and practical guidance throughout the whole process. Paul was very accommodating, nothing was ever too much trouble and we were very pleased with both outcomes being timely and on budget.
— Tristan & KateWe had a fantastic experience with Paul and his team. The project ran to time and the finishes were very good. The team was friendly, easy to work with and very efficient. If ever there were any problems, they were dealt with quickly and effectively. Even after the project finished Paul continues to assist with any issues that arise in regard to the house. We would definitely be happy to work with Finch constructions again on the next project.
— Special Needs SchoolWe have contracted Finch Construction twice to do demolition and reconstruction work in three bathroom areas. They have been required to work to a very tight time schedule on both of these occasions. We found them to be very efficient, thorough, accommodating and professional and we have been very pleased with the final result. We will certainly use them again.
— Peter & MargaretWe have used Finch for three jobs over five years, a kitchen and bathroom renovation, a substantial house extension that involved a new guest wing and portico, and lastly installation of a slow combustion heater. Whether a small job or substantial multi hundred thousand dollar job, Paul and his team have been outstanding, very attentive, very professional and thorough and met or exceeded all of our expectations.
— Jenny & CharlieIt is obvious that Paul and his team take pride in delivering a high standard of workmanship and service. They listened to our ideas, and made some excellent suggestions, which were improvements on our original plans. Throughout the entire construction they kept us fully informed and proved to be extremely reliable. If we were to do it again we definitely would only use Finch Constructions.
— Sophie & BenPaul Finch and his team renovated our 100 year old home in 2010. The project took six months and stayed on schedule even over the Christmas period. We were impressed with Paul’s ability to ‘get the job done’ with minimal fuss and maximum efficiency. Paul’s professionalism has earned him the respect of his sub-contractors who were also very good to deal with. Paul delivered on his commitments and it was a great to have him following us up rather than the other way around! We would recommend Finch Constructions for any building project.
