Testimonials | What our clients say

"...Hard as Rocks are a pleasure to deal with, the product range is extensive and workmanship on site is extremely well finished at a cost effective price! The service which they offer us is great and the end results look fantastic. All of our clients which have used Eldorado Stone product are extremely happy." - Darren Sears, Director, Stonewood Homes Wellington Ltd

Estilo Homes has used Hard as Rocks Wellington exclusively for our feature stone work now for several years and have been very satisfied with both the product, and the installation service.

The range to select from is extensive which is important from a client perspective, and the product goes up quickly and easily and can be treated as a ‘feature’ rather than structural, which is important from a build perspective.

We look forward to offering this range as an option for any clients interested in achieving a quality stone look product for many years to come.

"Good afternoon all, 

This is just a brief note to inform you of what a great job your installers did here last Friday. The three guys, Rob, Blackie and the third young guy who's name sadly escapes me, did a fantastic job of installing the stacked stone for my new fire surround. 

They worked all day without a break, were conscientious of the out come I wanted as the client and displayed a real attention to detail when installing the product, that by all accounts is not without it's design complications.

All too often in the trade and service industries, the only feedback received is complaints and negative comments, so please ensure these guys are acknowledge for their stellar work here last Friday, along with my gratitude to you all for your assistance, from start to finish, in this project.

Very pleased,"

Steve Bonham
