Jason Wescott Builder knows that open communication and a good relationship form the basis of an enjoyable building process. Because of this, we have many happy clients, but don’t just take our word for it. Please feel free to hear from some of our past clients and what they had to say about their experience building with us.
Firstly, let me make the statement that both Judith and I are absolutely delighted with the house Jason and his team have built for us!
In broad terms, the scope of the project was to completely strip our 1890’s Victorian era property, rebuild it to its former glory, and include a substantial extension that would seamlessly blend in with the rebuild. The location of the house and the heritage overlay coupled with our requirement to replicate period features meant that Judith and I spent considerable time meeting with builders that had been recommended for this type of work. Through this process we became very comfortable with the approach Jason and his team took working through our “vision” with us and we gave the “go ahead” for the project late December 2014. It is difficult to describe our experience with Jason and his team in a short testimony however the following summary attempts to capture key observations and experiences over the build program.
Strong understanding of our requirements and “value adding” experience with this type of build. The proposal was clear, provided a detailed scope of work and prompt attention was
given to queries and revisions that developed throughout the project.
Project management was excellent and no delays of any significance were experienced.
As with all projects, there were interesting and unexpected challenges to be addressed. The “can do” approach displayed by Jason and his team certainly resonated well with Judith and myself and any variations (changes to the original contract) identified were discussed, costed and presented promptly for approval.
Jason has a great team and in particular we acknowledge the assistance and support from Susan (administration), Matt (foreman) and Gregory (mumbles).We should also make the point that throughout the project we had the opportunity to meet with a number of subcontractors to Jason (Plumbing/Electrical/Painting/Plastering etc) along with Suppliers, and were impressed with their assistance and commitment to this build program. At the end of the project we felt we had met some great people and developed some wonderful friendships.
Another strong point! All matters were handled promptly and professionally. Meetings were conducted on site as required.
It should be noted the house is in a very high profile location and drew lots of comments/complements throughout (and beyond) the build process.
Having access to the house throughout construction was very important for us as we were keen to contribute to the process, in particular with the selection of features such as cornice, mantles, fire inserts etc. Jason and his team were very obliging (we were at the house at least once per week) and their experience and knowledge certainly assisted and guided us with our decision making.
In summary, our “journey” with Jason and the team has been a great experience and we would
like to believe that as a result of project we will all share a lasting friendship that will endure for
Would we recommend “Jason Wescott Builder?”.

“What a great experience to work with Jason and his team to build our beautiful new house. We had used a project builder in Bendigo on a previous build and what a nightmare! Needless to say I was quite nervous to do it again but a totally different experience right from the beginning to the end.
Professional, flexible, obliging, quality finish, nothing was a problem, great communication, he made the time to listen and we have ended up with a house that is exactly what we wanted and we love it. We wouldn't think of using anyone else but Jason and his team again and I am always recommending him to friends who are thinking of building.
Thanks heaps Jase and Co, we’ll be back.”

“Don and I could not be any happier with our new extension. We had already restored our beautiful home, originally built in 1872 , but wanted to add a large family room and master bedroom.
Jason and his team made the whole process really enjoyable. From the onset we found Jason Wescott builders professional in their approach - starting from our initial meeting, quote presentation, time frames, quality through to the finished product. It was great to find a builder who kept us in the loop with everything and was happy to work with us.
If you are looking to build in the Bendigo area, we would not hesitate in recommending Jason and his team!”
Don and Penny Shearman
“We had 3 quotations for our proposed renovation to our house. The Jason Wescott price was middle of the range but what l was impressed with was not just the price but his way of achieving the end result with a high regard to a quality outcome.
I asked Jason not to take shortcuts and l always felt when we were discussing potential problems that he would offer different scenarios but recommend the best quality outcome and on every occasion we went with his recommendation. Consequently, we ended up with a house better than we first anticipated.
I am aware of the many stories where the renovation experience has been difficult because of builder attitude and poor communication but the experience we had with Jason and his crew was very different. At no stage did we find this stressful or difficult and this was because of the continual open communication that existed right through our 10 week renovation. We found the affiliated trades that Jason uses were very friendly, helpful and would always answer any queries we may ask.
I would always recommend Jason Wescott Builders for his quality of workmanship, fair and reasonable pricing and for his attention to detail that is done in a very open and friendly manner.”
Greg and Jenny Galloway
"From our initial discussion to the completion of the warranty period we had a wonderful interaction with Jason Wescott Builders. Jason was not the lowest cost quote but it was his attention to detail in the quoting process that gave us confidence in keeping to our budget. Jason was able to use his extensive experience to offer advice to our drafting firm that resulted in an improved design. Jason himself was regularly onsite and anything that came up was dealt with professionally. What we liked the most was that Jason gave us options and took accountability for the solution. Importantly there were 'no surprises' as variations were agreed and signed off in advance of works being commenced. Although many builders say this is their process, Jason Wescott Builders adhere to it and the outcome is certainty for all. Jason’s team of tradespeople headed up by our foreman Austin showed great care in their work and also great respect for our wishes allowing us to remain in the house throughout the renovation. The office staff was always available and the paperwork prepared on time and easy to follow.
We also congratulate Jason, Kylie and team on attaining a prestigious and well-deserved MBA award for our renovation.
A great experience for our family and we unconditionally recommend Jason Wescott Builders to any prospective clients."
