We engaged Pro-Builder & Jim's team through word of mouth. Our experience was excellent and we are strong advocates of the people in the team, quality of advice, quality of workmanship, and ultimately value for money. Jim's advice and... counsel was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. We are very happy to speak to any prospective client of Jim's in more detail.read more

Thankyou to ProBuilder for the much needed rebuild of the back deck at my house.The entire process, from the initial contact to the conclusion of the work, including the first inspection of the existing structure, the planning , the... implementation and the successful conclusion, was all undertaken with an exemplary degree of professionalism. The high level of competence, attention to detail, punctuality, reliability, courtesy, and excellent communication continued throughout the build. At the conclusion of every day the site was left immaculately clean and tidy.The project was scheduled to begin as the COVID-19 lockdown was announced. The ProBuilder team took every precaution to implement and ensure complete safety and compliance with regulations. The work proceeded and was successfully completed on schedule.Thankyou to the ProBuilder team, the new deck is a thing of beauty and structural integrity, we all love it.L.L Manly, QLD.read more

I recently contacted ProBuilder to discuss a concern with a renovation that had been completed in 2011. Even after this time lapse, Jim promptly called to inspect and agreed to send his team around to address my problem. Great Back Up... Service. Thanks Jim.read more

Jim McIntyre is the most organised builder we have ever used.
The transformation of our home was fully quoted and finished to perfection ahead of time and under budget !!!


We lived in our home during the process and so many aspects of the project delighted us. We received regular updates of the work schedule and appreciated the precision involved. Workers were only on site when needed – everyone was always busy!


Many thanks to the entire ProBuilder team, we won’t hesitate to use you again and would highly recommend your services to anyone requiring an excellent building service.

About 5 years ago I contacted Jim at ProBuilder to do some maintenance on my house.


It turned out to be more extensive than I first thought as a steel beam had been compromised.


I placed my trust in Jim and was not let down.


The work that he and his team do is of a very high standard, they are extremely professional and are good to have on site.


Since the first job very complex job that I had ProBuilder do I have had them do work of varying sizes on three other properties and I have recommended them to family and friends.

Renee H – Wynnum


It was an absolute pleasure dealing with ProBuilder over the last few months and I highly recommend them for their professionalism, consideration and excellent work.


I was away overseas for most of the project, which involved several other suppliers apart from ProBuilder, and Jim McIntyre organised and brought everything together brilliantly.


I have recommended them to family and friends.

Jim provided innovative and quality solutions for our spatially and topographically challenging upgrade requirements in Paddington,
and he and his crew were a pleasure to deal with.

A big thank you once again to our preferred builder, Jim McIntyre.


This is the third time we have used Jim and we have always been impressed with his professionalism, punctuality and his enthusiasm.


This time we left him the onerous task of a renovation when we were absent from the country.


We were kept informed with updates and photographs via email and as usual all went according to plan.


Delighted with the end result, which was entirely due to Jim’s attention to detail. Jim’s tradespeople are pleasant and efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them.


Would have no hesitation in recommending Pro-Builder to anyone seeking good old-fashioned service and a renovation or build that you will be happy with.

Paul & Lisa M – Lota


Jim and his team at Probuilder were extremely professional, neat and particular about getting things done right. From the first time we met Jim we felt confident that he would help us achieve the results we dreamed of within our budget. He listened to what we wanted and also gave some really great suggestions.


Our renovation was stress free and we are so proud of the results. The trades people turned up on schedule and got the job done.

‘We would like to sincerely thank you and your Probuilder team for the work on our home extension/renovation.


As a builder and project manager, you understood our vision, worked in partnership with us and delivered a high quality project, on-time and on-budget. We also achieved a ‘no stress’ renovation much to the surprise of friends, family and work colleagues.


We had already lived in our home for 5 years in what we considered to be small house with solid bones and had explored all options including a full demolition and start again, sell and buy elsewhere, a small renovation or a major extension/renovation of the existing home. We were initially very apprehensive of doing a major renovation after watching many renovation shows and listening to friends go through stressful cost blowouts. You were able to convince us otherwise and we were pleased as that meant not wasting precious materials such as the existing hardwood floors.


We got the impression early on that you were listening to what we had to say and that it was valuable to build a successful working relationship. As the project progressed it was clear you understood intuitively what the vision for our home was, particularly which materials and finishes we would be happy with. It was easier for us to make decisions as a result.


Here are a few points that worked for us:


    • Whilst you had a network of professionals, trades and suppliers, you were happy for us to source services and materials where we had contacts, or use a combination such as engineering, kitchen and bathroom supplies;


    • You had a good network of expert suppliers and consultants that helped us with choices in design and materials;


    • You managed and controlled your sub-contractors well. Your sub-contractors were always polite and attentive to us whilst on-site and listened if we wanted something and fully aware that you were in charge of the project.


    • If we wanted to talk about anything or if we wanted to meet on-site to talk through works, you were willing to do so. Even if this was us just wanting to feel comfortable with progress.


    • The site was tidy and clean at all times which was important to us.


    • Where any issues arose you were skilled at problem solving and providing options to use for a quick resolution.


    • You had a clear project plan that you shared with us and you did what was written in the plan. The plan was realistic and it helped us understand the dependencies of timing around different trades on site and the time frames. This gave us clear guidance as to when we had to make material choices such as tile choices, paint colours and fittings.



6 months on we are enjoying our lovely ‘new’ home and are very happy we made the decision to invest with your company. We wish you all the success in your future business and would not hesitate to recommend you highly to others.‘

‘Our initial contact with Jim McIntyre was as a result of a BSA dispute application in regard to a water incursion problem into our property. Jim was engaged to rectify the problem on behalf of the BSA. His conduct throughout this period was exemplary. He identified the necessary scope of works required to resolve the issue and actioned the works most professionally with a very competent level of communication throughout the process. Because of this very positive experience we again engaged Jim’s company when we required extensive works at our property.


Our contract included further water proofing works across our roof and doorways and refurbishment of internal floors. The works required Jim to conduct an extensive degree of investigation into the causes of the problem and liaison with other contractors in identifying the most efficient timing of the specific works. Jim was able to very efficiently organise the contractors and administer the works.


The site imposed a number of difficulties in regard to access, public health & safety and general amenity of neighbours. Jim and his tradesmen were very conscious of the above and there were few, if any, issues arising during the period of the works.The overall outcome was a most pleasing series of works combining to produce a very credible outcome. We will have little hesitation in engaging Jim for any future projects we require at our property.’

Brett D, Davies Drafting & Design


‘I have known Jim for the last 10 years after being involved in many projects and have always found Jim to be professional and easy to talk to. I have met Jim on the job site before building work commences and I know from his instructions that he thinks about designing the best outcomes for his clients, whilst considering a cost effective budget.


I know Jim’s clients are always happy with his work and I would have no hesitation in recommending Jim for future building projects. I regularly advise my clients to contact Jim as I know they will be getting a good builder and will achieve a fabulous result with their projects. I wish Jim and his team all the best in their future endeavours.’

G. & S. Sneesby – Manly
