We were very happy we chose to build with 4Life Constructions.
It was clear that Matt and his team are highly experienced, and they were always friendly and polite. Throughout the whole build Matt's scheduling of trades was well organised and ensured the project progressed at a pleasing rate.
His team of local trades is professional and committed to working on his projects. Communication regarding all matters was efficient, clear and fully supportive of achieving the best result. Things like thorough checks of workmanship, protecting the site during bad weather, careful storage of appliances and cleaning up all helped make our build a pleasant process.
The end result is exactly what we wanted, finished to a high-quality standard. We fully recommend 4Life Constructions to anyone undertaking a building project on the south coast.

We approached Matt Cates at 4 Life Constructions for a renovation to our existing house with an attached new build, & couldn’t recommend anybody more highly.
From the initial meeting all the way to handover we felt at ease because Matt knew exactly what we wanted & had exceptional communication with us in all aspects of the build. Matt was a great advocate for us when we couldn’t be there to do something ourselves & his expectations from suppliers for quality & finishes meant we have ended up with the house of our dreams.
Matt’s quote was more than reasonable & any variations due to our changing of mind were made clear.
The 4 Life team were amazing the whole way through the build too, they were kind, respectful, talented & extremely tidy - always leaving the work site spotless. It was actually a sad day when they packed their tools up at the end of the build.
If we were to build again, it would be with Matt Cates & his team at 4 Life Constructions, simply because there was never a moment of disappointment. The most heartfelt thank you

Being a first-time owner builder & not involved within the building industry, there was a mixture of excitement & self-doubt with achieving the outcome! I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to such professional tradespersons. Your communication, flexibility to alterations & advice of experience was appreciated & made the whole process run smoothly. Matt, your supervision of the carpenters, workmanship & overall quality was out-standing. I was so impressed with the attention to detail to what isn't even seen in the finished product; stud-work etc; the way the site was left tidy for other trades, off-cuts, rubbish etc, is to be commended. We are both so appreciative to all involved & enjoying our new home.

Matt, Bec and the guys at 4life Constructions did an amazing job managing and building our sustainable eco-friendly home. Their attention to detail, craftsmanship and efficient use of time and materials were outstanding. Matt and his team are professional and friendly, a pleasure to work with! We have and will continue to recommend 4lifeconstructions to anyone looking for a high quality, custom built home.

Matt and his team were amazing! Advising on the original design, through drafting, gaining approval from Council, all the way to completion. While I was not on site for any stages of the project, Matt kept me fully informed on progress, including suggested modifications to improve the atheistic and functionality. It's the often-overlooked components that makes a real difference. Their use of Stainless-Steel fittings, high quality timber and treatments highlights the quality of their construction. Not to mention the fact that the place was left spotless after they left. Thank you. I'm loving it!

Building our home with 4Life Constructions was a pleasurable experience. Matt’s attention to detail and focus on ensuring that the client gets what they desire was perfect for our custom build. Matt and his team were great to deal with and we could not fault the service we received throughout the build. Would highly recommend 4Life Constructions.

“We approached Matt Cates at 4Life Constructions for a quotation to build an outside entertaining area as an attachment to our house in Encounter Bay. Matt had been recommended to us by neighbours.
The construction by Matt and his team was fantastic. He designed the build to compliment the gabled structure and colour of the existing house. His attention to detail plus his exceptional construction skills was first class. He managed his team well, a group of young, enthusiastic and competent tradesmen. Matt also coordinated the work of other contractors, including electricians, painters and paving contractors.
At the completion of the job, his fee was exactly as he quoted. No variations.
Apart from his actual work, Matt is a very personable and professional man who is a pleasure to deal with. I commend him to any potential client”
J & J Barnes - Encounter Bay
I dealt with Matt when building two commercial buildings in Goolwa. He was a pleasure to work with and always easy to contact. Even when we made changes to the plans nothing phased him. I would highly recommend 4Life Constructions to anyone looking at building a New Home or Commercial Building.
K Anderson - Goolwa
4life Constructions came recommended to us by numerous locals and we in turn would highly recommend carrying out a build with them. We had a decent sized extension put on our existing home whilst still residing their full time and Matt and his awesome crew made easy work of this with minor disruption to our family. Matt is very friendly and quite easily the most thorough and prompt tradesman we’ve dealt with, always answering communications within minutes and dealing with any issues quickly and efficiently. The work is to a high standard and we’re very impressed with the end result.

MATT CATES AND 4 LIFE CONSTRUCTIONS DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB BUILDING OUR DOUBLE GARAGE. HIS ATTENTION TO DETAIL, REASONABLE PRICES AND QUALITY FINISH, STAND HIM OUT FROM SO MANY OTHER BUILDERS. HE HAS A TERRIFIC GROUP OF TRADESMEN WORKING FOR HIM AND EACH PERSON MAINTAINED THE HIGH STANDARDS EXPECTED BY MATT.
HE WAS VERY APPROACHABLE, RETURNED EMAILS AND PHONE CALLS PROMPTLY AND DELIVERED ON EVERYTHING HE STATED HE WOULD DO, AND IN A VERY REASONABLE TIMEFRAME.
IF WE WERE TO BUILD AGAIN, WE WOULD GO TO MATT CATES AND 4LIFE CONSTRUCTIONS FIRST!
