Testimonials

“Our story started with great difficulty over many years on wondering what can go in our yard. The options were (pergola? decking? shade sail? and gazebo?) Majority suggested we go with a pergola but the problem was they provided limited shading. We thought of an elaborate roofed decking with landscaping but placement was a real problem. We thought of shade sails but didn't like the inconvenience of taking them down when extreme gustily winds occur and the placement of support poles were an eye sore. The gazebo ended up being the most logical choice however, there was little to choose in terms of gazebo like construction in NZ. What was available locally were gazebos that didn't resemble the durability of what a proper gazebo should be. At Cameo Gazebos, what you actually get is a gazebo that will last for the life of the house. Proper roof with gutters and drain to handle storm water. Concealed stainless steel screws and caps, and a wide choice of options for the balustrade inserts. Yes other gazebo suppliers were cheaper but they simply were not comparable to the vast options that Cameo Gazebos provides. Thank you Grant! ”

“We are delighted with our new gazebo. Cameo Construction did an excellent job of making and erecting the gazebo. They were efficient and very pleasant to deal with. The finished product looks great.”

“One of my smarter decisions was purchasing a Cameo Gazebo on display at the Ellerslie Flower Show. I knew I had to have it as the perfect companion for my 100 year old villa. The fretwork matched the house, the shape mirrored the bay house-front, even the colour was the same as the house. It’s a valuable addition to set off the garden, the perfect place to entertain guests and somewhere to take coffee and the newspaper and get away from it all. I found the service Grant provided erecting the gazebo was excellent.”

"I write to express my appreciation to both Grant and Mike for their excellent and timely service and the quality of the gazebo. Given that it will be used for weddings, quality was a determinative factor."

“In October 2014 I approached Cameo Construction to quote a manufacture a Gazebo and asked if it could be completed before Christmas. Cameo Construction’s reply was that they thought a delivery and installation before Christmas was really tight but would see what they could do without any promises. Come the 23rd of December the Gazebo was completed and installed. The quality of workmanship and installation was superb and working with Grant Snodgrass was both friendly and obliging. I have no hesitation recommending Cameo Construction, and acting as a reference for their workmanship.”

“We first employed Cameo Construction to create a gazebo in the courtyard at The Olde Creamery Cafe to enhance our wedding courtyard approximately 10 years ago.  We were impressed with their quality workmanship, professionalism and the outstanding attention to detail during the planning and installation process.

As a result of an unfortunate fire that destroyed the gazebo in 2014, we contacted Grant again to create a replica gazebo. His response to our predicament was immediate and nothing short of outstanding.We totally appreciated his compassion to our plight. We would unreservedly recommend Cameo Construction for anyone requiring one of their quality products and be happy for potential clients to view our gazebo at The Olde Creamery.”
