What our clients say about us


They have exceeded our high expectations

Having JS Henderson builders renovate our older home has been an excellent experience.

It was very important to us that the builders be not only highly skilled but also have the right attitude and knowledge. We are very pleased that this was certainly the case from the very start to finish. They were all so well mannered and showed great respect.

Communication channels were always open which helped smooth out the whole amazing journey. We always felt that we were very well looked after with the builders being honest, clean, tidy and of pleasant dispositions.

Their attention to detail and expert craftsmanship won them an award for our home. We are so happy and proud to live in what feels and looks like a brand new beautiful high quality home. The builders have had decades of experience in building award winning homes, because of this they were able to think of solutions and ideas that we loved and definitely helped make the whole process so much easier.

They have exceeded our high expectations and the end result is truly amazing.

We highly recommend JS Henderson builders.

JS Henderson has been our builder of choice for a period exceeding 30 years, completing renovations, major extensions and new home construction. From the initial meeting to the final handover, each stage is discussed in detail, with full cost disclosure. The business ethics are second to none, resulting in attention to detail in every aspect of the construction process.

This company employs a skilled and dedicated team, which together with carefully selected trades, resulting in a build of the highest standard.

Adam guided us through each phase of the construction of our new home, completed in 2017. This company comes highly recommended.

Kevin and Margaret
Ballina, NSW

We had the good fortune to have JS Henderson as builders of our new Byron Bay home.

We had a relatively complex design with full concrete floors on both levels, corten steel cladding, roof deck, "wave” timber ceilings just to name a few features.

The JS Henderson team produced a top quality build.

Adam, John and Simon were easy to work with and catered for quite a few design changes we requested.

We were very happy with the home they constructed for us
