Customer Feedback

27.7.2016  Alan Somerville from Kaharoa

"We constructed our macrocarpa house 27-28  years ago using board & batten untreated in any way. We used mac for all exterior (paint finish) and interior doors. Facia, exposed external beam section. All interior beams, skirtings, architraves, even some framing. All in macrocarpa (some splits in short lengths soon after construction; some superficial degrade and decay in bottom of wall finishing strip where it has been in contact with vegetation- otherwise still in good condition)."
As you can see in the photo the house is in excellent condition almost 3 decades later.

"We purchased 2 custom size raised garden beds. MacDirect quickly and accurately quoted a range of options to suit our needs and clearly answered any questions we had. Courier delivery issues that could have been really frustrating and inconvenient, were quickly solved by MacDirect staff who went the extra mile to make sure our experience  was great. A brilliant team who cares for the smallest of customers. Thank you so much".

Lin and Larry Pardey, Kawau Island

"We have used macrocarpa, Lawson cypress and Lusitanica provided by MacDirect for the complete rebuild of our home and boatshop on Kawau Island. We liked the timber so well, we have just recently used it to build an office and guest cottage. The people at Mac Direct have been helpful, on time and took care of any problems we encountered quickly. They are our supplier of choice for these timbers."
