After getting several quotes for our renovations in East Fremantle, we chose Home & Heritage Constructions. We found their quote both reasonable in price and their plans for our residence were easy for us to understand. Les Halbert is the principle and at all times he was approachable and open to listen to any “changes” we thought might enhance the finished product. Les and his crews were always helpful, reliable, prompt and tidy. We could not be happier with the final outcome and we would be more than happy to recommend Home and Heritage Constructions to any of Les’s future clients.
Les came highly recommended by my designer and did not disappoint. His team of tradesmen were all highly professional, having worked together as a well-oiled machine for many years. Importantly for me, they were also friendly, trustworthy and considerate, as I was not only living in the house throughout, I was working from home due to COVID-19. As this was my first ever home renovation, I relied heavily on Les and his team to help with the decision-making process…and I am so pleased with the end result.
Les is a fastidious builder, with a meticulous eye for detail…I ended up having extra work done, as he identified important issues with my circa 1897 home during the works. Despite this, and the extra challenges of sourcing supplies during a pandemic, the job was completed on-schedule, and actually under-budget. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Les and his business Home and Heritage Constructions, and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Les Halbert is a very good builder. He knows what he is doing, loves what he does, is very good at it and cares deeply about the outcome. He has great attention to detail and relishes challenges. The substantial project he undertook for us was part renovation and part new build. It was not straight forward and I was not the easiest client with constant changes and new ideas to incorporate into the plans. Les took all this is his stride.
He listens to what you want rather than doing what is easiest for him and will never cut corners. When problems arise, and they alway do in any building project, he deals with them promptly and with good humour. His building site is always neat and tidy at the end of the day. Somehow he managed to keep our neighbours happy and cooperative which made our life much easier and is no mean feat for a project that took over a year to complete. I would without hesitation recommend Les for anyone looking to take on a either a new build or renovation.

We approached Builder Les Halbert early this year with an “impossible task” (using the words of other Builders we approached). To renovate our just bought old run down cottage in the Hilton area in five weeks. Removing asbestos, structural walls, insulate the new walls, redesign and install a kitchen, two bathrooms, install wooden jarrah beams and not to mention polishing the floorboards throughout the house.
Being new to this kind of house and not quite knowing where to start, Les designed a realistic plan that fitted within our budget and set to work straight away. We were impressed with the fast progress of the renovations and Lese`s professionalism of that of his crew. We felt that our little cottage was treated with respect and not just “Another Project” as we have experienced in the past.
Five weeks into the project we were able to move in, with only little jobs to complete. That would also mean that workmen would be in our space which can be disruptive in the best of times. Les showed great understanding and respect to our space. By regular updating us of who will be in the house and when to put us at ease.
We highly recommend Builder Les Halbert to anyone who is undertaking renovations or building a home. His honest, prompt, no fuss, can do approach made our renovation experience a positive, exciting and happy time in our life. We love what you have done for us Les.We are still overwhelmed with how beautiful our home looks, thanks to you and your team. We would have no hesitation to recommend Les to anyone that is looking for a trustworthy and reliable builder as his professionalism is second to none.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Les Halbert of Home & Heritage Constructions. Les did an internal renovation in an older house for me, and I am thrilled with the result. He is extremely competent and very professional, with excellent communication skills. Les has a high degree of integrity and is utterly trustworthy. We spoke and met most days; he also made a point of getting to know our neighbours. The attention to detail and quality of his work met all my expectations and made this project really enjoyable. Thanks Les!
Les came highly recommended by my architect and certainly did not disappoint. I had problems from the start with permits and approvals with the shire which Les took on and sorted out. As my renovation was an addition to an older style home i knew there would be unforeseen problems which Les handled and solved with his calm approach and even temper.
Any concerns I had or changes to be made to bring the plan to fruition were addressed immediately. I also added to the work load by requesting further work be done which was not covered in the contract. This was taken on by Les without hesitation. Les made homself available at all times and most importantly always answered his phone so I never had a problem with contacting him.
My Addition is now complete and I am very happy with the end result. I have been assured by Les that any issues with or maintenance of his work will be attended to. I would not hesitate to recommend Les as his dedication to his client is paramount and his work ethic is outstanding.

Les Halbert built our house in Mosman Park in 2005. We found the whole process to be totally stress free and it was a pleasure to work with Les. The build was completed to the highest specifications in the agreed time frame and 12 years later is still in excellent Condition.
Since that time Les has made a few modifications for and recently completed major alterations for two of our daughters. We have recommended Les to a few friends who were also extremely satisfied with his work. His professionalism and attention to detail make Les
stand out amongst his peers.
We are happy to offer this testimonial for Home and Heritage Constructions.
A friend introduced me to Les in 2016 as we needed to spruce up the house and garden and I was not getting round to the tasks myself. Les was superb in every way. He carefully and cheerfully made a list of all that we needed and no job seemed too small or too large. He arranged everything which needed a sub-contractors, e.g. fence replacement, rendering and painting, and did a number of fixing and carpentry jobs himself.
The best thing about all this was that he checked all the work meticulously, kept us informed of what was going on and gave a pretty good estimate of the cost in advance. I think the overall cost was lower than it would have been if I had organised things myself as I would not have known if contractors’ quotes were inflated (taking advantage of my lack of expertise). We would thoroughly recommend his services to others.
