Extremely happy and satisfied we chose gj gardner Launceston for our new home.
We can't speak highly enough of the team at gj gardner Launceston. From the beginning of choosing the design with Warrick and Craig we believed that this was a very professional team of people particularly warrick who was very patient with us in the design stage. Tanya was most helpful and understanding with us choosing the colours externally and internaly as it took us time to decide on the choices as we live in north queensland and things were done by email and mobile phone this lady is very professional in what she does. The build went extremely well with the construction manager Garry who kept us very well informed with pictures and phone communication, a very helpful man indeed.The end result of the build was excellant. I must also mention the admin lady Natalie who was always a very cheery, happy, joyfull, helpful and pleasant soul to ring and talk to. A special thankyou to Chris who heads the team he is professional, full of knowledge and experience in the buiding industry, Thankyou everyone for your help in building our new home. I have no hesitations in recommending gj gardner home in Launceston to build their new home. In my opinion they are the best builders in Tasmania if not Australia and we genuinely appreciate what this team of people have done for us Paul and Julie. Townsville.
Tasmanian retirement in a G.J. Gardner home
From the beginning the team at G.J. Gardner Launceston were fantastic. Organising a new build from interstate could have been a nightmare but this was not the case. A couple of visits to Tasmania to start the process then to choose colours then the move and watch the building taking shape. The team at Launceston answered any questions and the whole process was transparent. I am now enjoying my new G.J. Home and love it.
We could not have been happier with GJ Gardner's in Launceston, and our new home is perfect!
When we were planning to move to Tasmania from Melbourne we did a lot of research to find the builder that suited us, and we have absolutely no regrets about choosing GJ Gardner's. We started the process of planning our new home with Chris and the team even before we arrived in Tasmania. They were very good at dealing with email and phone communications and it was great to get a "jump-start" on the project as we were keen to get out of temporary accommodation as soon as possible after we moved here.
The team were really responsive and accommodating to us with all of our peculiar "demands", the most unusual one, perhaps, being our desire to build a fully soundproofed recording studio as part of our home. We'd had a studio built in our last home, which we had agonised over designing, with a huge amount of research and trying to explain to the builders what was necessary. So I knew how tricky it was to make a room properly soundproofed. But this new one that Gardners have built (using the Boral Cinemazone Gold system) has been a great success and we're very happy with it. We can bang away on drums and bass and guitars and not bother the rest of the family, never mind the neighbours. And it's perfectly silent inside, so we can record without any extraneous noise. So if you need a "theatre room" or, indeed, a small studio (maybe a big one, even), Gardner's can do it for you!
The rest of the house is built to a very high standard and the team were happy to work with us patiently to make our little idiosyncratic ideas possible - and to make sure they looked good too. The ornate tiled entrance is gorgeous even though the poor tiler guy had to do a lot of head-scratching to make it perfect - but perfect it is, because this guy was a perfectionist if ever there was one!
Everything fits together as it should be. Maybe that seems like something you could take for granted, but it's not always the case with other builders, and it's an absolute delight when every door is hung perfectly, every window is right, the carpentry is accurate, the brickwork is tidy, and everything feels solid and properly put together from good materials.
It's now nine months since we moved in so we've had a chance to put the house through it's paces, so to speak. When Gardner's contacted us for the three-month maintenance the only problem in the whole building was the slightest little cosmetic flaw in one of the door knobs, which wasn't their fault anyway.
Our building supervisor was fantastic, and he did an awful lot to put our mind at ease and make sure we were confident that the build was proceeding as it should. We also should mention the bloke (and his team) who did the excavation and a bit of extra landscaping for us, especially in how careful he was to ensure that water run-off and drainage was taken care of properly. He mentioned that it was better to think about such things during the build rather than after you move in and problems with rain water flow become apparent.
Finally, the kitchen is brilliant. There were a lot of little streamlined touches that we didn't even know were possible when we put in our own "ideas" for how it should look. The carpentry is good and strong and, again, everything "just fits right" - which is what you want!
I've left out whole teams of people - roofers, plumbers, electricians and more, but they all did a great job and were really helpful and communicative when necessary, and sometimes went out of their way, too, to accommodate us.
Oh, and the site was cleaned and tidied up very nicely indeed for us moving in, which I can say was definitely NOT the case for certain other houses that friends have had built by other companies.
So thanks from these happy customers to Chris and Tanya and everyone at Gardners for a very good job done very well!
Couldn't be happier
We are currently living in another state and have been dealing with GJ Gardner Homes in Launceston via, phone and email. Nothing has been too much trouble for any of the team. From the very beginning when we started dealing with Scott who took numerous calls and responded to emails and texts very quickly. Scott was able to recommend a home to us that suited our family perfectly. On more than one occasion the Launceston team have gone above and beyond to help us as we are so far away and were unable to arrange necessary modifications, such as blinds and fencing, even down to colour choices which was a huge help that Tanya was able to provide as well as regular emails. Chris was also able to answer all of our questions regarding the build and sent regular photo's of the progress.The quality of the build is excellent. We would highly recommend GJ Gardner homes to anyone considering building a quality home. It has been a pleasure dealing with Tanya, Chris and the team in Launceston.
[Name removed] and the team @ GJ Gardner Launceston were excellent to deal with, from the pre-planning and quote stage right through to the completion of the build and beyond. The team are so quick to respond to any questions or phone calls and are on top of things. The site supervisor was very impressive, I could not fault him. Always on time to meetings, always informing me as the build progressed, and got me in just in time for Christmas!! :)
The quality of the build is excellent, the very few minor problems were promptly fixed.
If anyone is after a stress-free, well managed building team, please consider GJ Gardner Launceston.
GJ Gardner Homes Launceston Rocks
This was the first time we have built and had been told all the normal stories. Don't do it, you will get divorsed before its done. Well none of it was true for us thanks to the team at GJ in Launceston. We built over an hour away from Launceston so all tradies made the trip every day. The build just flowed from start to finish and the communication lines were always open. Our plan was an adaption of one of their standard plans and we could not be happier with the finished home. Thanks once again to all the team at GJ Launceston you guys are great!
I would highly recommend building with G J Gardner Launceston the whole experience was a pleasure, friendly and helpful staff members and all the tradesmen I met during building were helpful and efficient. The standard of the build was great and I am so happy with the finished product. Thanks so much *******
Good prices and very good quality and excellent designs.

The initial thought of building a new home is extremely daunting. What to do what not to do? Where to start? Who to talk to ? What is the right direction to go? When we arrived at GJ Launceston, we knew we had come to the right place. We were treated with respect and were given a very honest appraisal of the packages available within our price bracket. During the entire process GJ Launceston we very open and honest about where things were at. We were given realistic time frames and as we watched our house being built, we knew we had made the right decision. The communication during the entire process gave us comfort and allowed us to participate and any decisions impacting our new house. We now live in our new home and we are more than happy with GJ Launceston for giving us something we always thought about (build a new home), but were too scared to do. Would we recommend GJ Launceston? yes we would without doubt.
The communication between the building supervisor and us. Was brilliant. [name removed] was always available and supported us throughout the entire process. He treated the construction of our place as it was his own.
Dissapointed with one contractor, however the issue is being worked through.
High quality home
The quality of our home built by G.J. Gardner Homes Launceston was outstanding. This was our second home that we have built. After the stress of maintaining a budget with our first build (with another company), the idea of a fixed price up front was the only way we were going to consider building again. We viewed different display homes & was so impressed by G.J.Gardners that we made an appointment with their consultant. We never looked back! They made it so easy. I can honestly say the only problem we have had is with a seal in a toilet which their plumber came & fixed promptly after we moved in. Everything opens & shuts like it should & things line up! Even the lines in the floor tiles are perfect. I'm very happy with the result
Easy, excellent result.
