"We have no hesitation in highly recommending Petras Nesteckis to anyone who is thinking about renovating or extending their home. He is polite, professional, skilled and very creative.
We originally asked Petras to fix our carport which was in dire need of repair. The gutters were rusted through, the aluminium roof needed patching up and ceiling needed replacing because of water damage. In three days we had a carport that basically looked like new.
About a year later, we were thinking about extending our kitchen and building a deck for outdoor entertaining. We didn’t even think of trying to contact anyone else but Petras. His experience and creativity shone through right from the design stage. Not only does he have a great eye for detail, Petras is always ready to advise where to save on costs and where to spend more to improve the project. The finishes and details are exquisite. His demeanour is always happy and positive and will work until the job is done rather than watch the clock. We are deliriously happy with the new kitchen and deck - Petras has created the most wonderful space for us.
All in all, our experience with Petras was positive and that the potentially difficult time during building works was made that much less difficult than it could have been."

Renovated rental property
I have known Petras for about 6 months now. During this time I have engaged his services as a contractor to rebuild my minor dwelling after the tenant of 20+ years moved out. The flat was damp and mouldy due to various leaks. After 20 years there was pretty much nothing worth saving! The job required the following...
1. Complete demolition of everything except the floor and exterior wall structures.
2. Management of timing of all sub-trades thru to PS1 status.
3. Redesign of a new more efficient space layout
4. Adherence to building code including ensuring all waterproofing practices are industry best practice.
5. Tasks performed include, framing, insulating, concreting, tiling, waterproofing, gibbing, finish trims, fitting windows/doors, fitting kit-set kitchen, exterior cladding, flashings, decking, pergola reinstatement and fencing to name a few.
I have found Petras to be a polite and conscientious tradesman who is remarkably well rounded in his experience and skill. He hates cutting corners so his ‘do things right the first time’ attitude has meant minimal time for me spent on the rebuild with maximum confidence. If I added tasks to the project, Petras and I would discuss to make sure he is clear and he just gets on with it. If he thinks something needs doing, he will point it out to me with good level headed reasoning and for the most part, I am persuaded. You’d be a moron not to hire this guy and I hated writing this letter because it just makes Petras harder for me to use him next time! Victim of his own success I would say.

"Outstanding. We have had Petras helping us for many weeks. On a major build and subsequent smaller builds, His workmanship is superb. Our family loved having Petras round every day and the quality of work was just amazing. I have no hesitation in totally recommending Petras. Come round and see what he did - it's amazing."
"Nest Renovation helped us out with a very tricky project, in the end, Petras's attention to detail saved us a lot of money and future headaches.
I'd have no trouble recommending Nest Renovation for any renovation job, they are straightforward to get along with and professional at each project stage."
"Petras and his team are awesome.
They've just finished a new extension on our property which includes a new dining area, master suite, a complete re-roof(Coloursteel) and an amazing deck.
From quote to completion Petras has communicated through every step of the way to complete a project that has joined together a 1948 weatherboard house to a brand new extension.
Petras is a true craftsman and we can't recommend him enough. Not only that but his attention to detail, suggestions and ideas have given us a space that is better than we could have imagined.
Even more impressive is that he did all this whilst our family lived in the house and also managed to answer every building question our 4-year-old threw at him with a smile on his face!"
"Petras (Nest Renovation) has been great to work with for the renovation of our property in Hillcrest. Petras came highly recommended by friends of ours for whom he undertook a renovation for, I am very glad that we took their recommendation and invited Petras to quote for the works.
Petras was very professional from the initial request for a quote, through to project closeout. He presented a complete and competitive quote, contributed to the design and construction planning, demonstrated insight in identifying potential issues, assisted in developing solutions, and completed the work with excellent attention to detail and high quality.
I would have no hesitancy in recommending Petras to others.
"It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Petras Nesteckis. I have employed him, in my capacity as Facilities Manager of the Latvian Community Centre in Melbourne, for various jobs over the past 3 years and have always found him trustworthy, diligent and highly competent.
He quickly became our preferred in-house contractor for jobs both large and small. His ability to use initiative and can-do attitude, coupled with creative solutions to problems, made him perfect for some of the more complicated projects involving complex older buildings.
Petras was also the main contractor to fully re-furbish the Latvian Community Centres old commercial kitchen, cafe and storage areas ($230,000 budget). He completed this project on time and on budget and to an excellent standard with quality workmanship. We were very sorry to lose his services when he moved to New Zealand, and I have no hesitation in recommending Petras as a very competent Master Builder. "
"Petras is experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of building and renovating and was able to provide some advice and make suggestions on materials, suppliers and design. This was very helpful, as we have no prior experience in renovating.
Petras has tried his best to accommodate our busy schedules and worked around our commitments to fit his working hours accordingly. He was always punctual and kept in touch with us, his clients, to manage our expectations.
Petras is very professional, polite and pleasant to deal with on a daily basis.
Petras did a very good job in our bathrooms comprising of an en suite, a bathroom and a separate toilet. Both my husband and I were very happy with his services and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a builder."

Our new deck looks absolutely amazing and the finish is to such high quality - you are a true craftsman. Its a complete transformation.
We really appreciated all your input and were so impressed with your honesty, integrity and reliability. Highly recommend Petras if anyone is looking for a new deck. We will definitely get in touch for future projects."
