Ted Manuel fixed our 6-bedroom leaky home in Auckland in a modern suburban area. We had serious problems and it was difficult dealing with so many specialists for a complete rebuild. This was a huge investment for us and Ted took this work and completed it a high standard. We now have a liveable, healthy and warm house. Ted was responsible for liaising with all sub-contractors, engineers, local council and architect. He enjoys the challenge of taking on projects and shows a very high standard of workmanship.


Ted Manuel and his team built two new homes for me which served as a family home and an investment property. Both were modern four-bedroom homes built within Western Springs area in Auckland. Ted provided full contract services – labour and material and we benefited from his advice. He is an honest and respectful person and easy to work with. He is highly knowledgeable in his trade and we were very lucky to have him. He never failed any council inspections and all work was done to high standard. Buildings were completed on time and the first home was sold instantly. We recommended Ted to other friends in the area who have enjoyed working with him too.


Ted Manuel of Rapid Builders and Renovators Ltd were recommended to us by our architect to do our house renovations. Our house needed rewiring and it was an opportunity to update our original 1950 house. On seeing the house and plans Ted suggested simple changes to storage and slight movement of walls to improve the liveability of the house. We took out a full contract with Ted. All building work was completed to the highest standards, trades were organised on time and to a high standard. Ted’s communication was excellent, we trusted his advice and even his choices for fittings, when we were unsure, and they turned out great. Every wall was replaced, insulation installed, rewiring, plumbing, kitchen, bathroom, wardrobes, painting, tiling, every part of our house was touched. It has been over a year later and we are still thinking how lucky we are to be living here. We unreservedly recommend Ted and his team and would use them again without question.
