New Home Building is our expertise.

We’re there to help with land selection, designs, approvals and the build, right to the end. As well as looking at your end investing strategy… to happy ever after…   every single step of the way.

House and Land Packages that have been carefully designed to save you $s and headaches.

Putting land, home and families together is a jigsaw puzzle and many people see advantages in a total package to save you time and money. Our carefully designed house and land packages can be adjusted to fit with your personal needs and preference.

Our houses are designed and built for the home owner or the investor and always sell and rent quickly. We understand the process from subdivision, strata, units to single dwellings with experience in our own projects from buying, selling, designing and developing.

Renovation is the solution for those who love their location or see the potential in their investment strategy.

Maybe you just need some simple changes to make your home perfect… like an extension, bigger deck or granny flat for children or parents. We understand how much your home means to you and we take the time to listen to your requirements as well as giving you options. The process is the same for every project we undertake. We spend the time and actively listen to what you want, to turn you from customer to referrer.

We love renovations for profit or renting, we see the potential and we have the experience in doing these projects, from fire damaged, to old and tattered, the end result can be very rewarding financially.

Property Investment and Development can be very rewarding… financially and personally.

It’s a balancing act, but it’s an act made easier (and safer) with the right kind of advice. We’ve had our own personal success and over a decade’s experience with both investment and development. We’re in an ideal position to show you how to get it right from how to make it a rewarding and profitable experience whether you’re looking at a single investment property or larger development. With experience in the rental market, option contracts, rental purchases, subdivisions, conveyance and strata plans you can rely on our knowledge and experience.

What Our Satisfied Clients Say About Us

Having purchased an older house as first home buyers, we discovered a number of serious issues with the property that needed attention.
After being given the proverbial run-around by a number of other people, we had Platinum Homes recommended to us by friends.
Bruce and his team provided friendly, prompt and professional service to assist with our renovations. The quality of workmanship has been great and we received clear updates and explanations as projects progressed – with patience to spare for our many questions!

We highly recommend Platinum Homes and will be return customers for future needs. Our house is now the safe and healthy home that we wanted for our growing family and it looks great too!

Rachael & Lyndon, Austins Ferry, Tasmania
Dear Clarissa and Bruce,
I’m writing to thank you for building the beautiful new house for us. It was amazing that your dedicated construction team successfully finished the work within 3 months and within budget, even though the weather was extremely unkind during that period. And the outcome is completely satisfactory.
We found your company to be professional, patient and helpful. The attitude of the Platinum staff is fantastic. We will have no hesitation in recommending your company to everyone.
Ivy and Francis
They were good, easy going and understood the requirements of the job. They did the job to a high quality. Nothing was a problem to them and their price was good price. I was very happy with them. I would recommend them highly and will use them again.
John
My home was badly fire damaged and need rebuilding from the existing floor.
Platinum Homes came along and took care of everything.
They also suggested and made some minor modifications to internal sizes for the better and added built in robes to all bedrooms.
They then suggested that we Render the outside instead of weatherboards and the house now looks great. Platinum Homes did all the extra’s for the insured contract price.
My new home is roomier inside and looks great from the outside and this increased it’s value greatly. I highly recommend Platinum Homes, not just for the quality of their work but also for the ideas they suggested and because they actually cared about the finished product.
Kim
When I decided to build a house I had a good idea of what I wanted in a builder someone whom: return phone calls within 48 hours; keep appointments; listen to what I wanted; was not condescending; was layback but not asleep; and had a good sense of humour. Bruce was all of these things (but he could work on his sense of humour) and more, he was even accommodating when I made changes and creative when I picked bright colours for tiles. Thanks Bruce and Clarissa! Thanks Platinum Homes!
Jennifer Connell, Old Beach
I would just like to say thank you for your guidance, professionalism and all your help in the construction of my homes at 7 Travers Court, Claremont. You have gone above and beyond with your service. Having little experience in the Tasmanian property market, without your knowledge and guidance I would not have achieved the high quality of homes I have today.Bruce and Clarissa, running a family business give service that personal, friendly touch. They are always available to take any questions I may have whether it may be regarding the homes or even property advice. Their quality of homes they construct is second to none. They are fast, efficient with a no nonsense approach and work around your personal circumstances.
“Thank you again Bruce and Clarissa, looking forward to engaging Platinum Home Builders in many more projects to come in the near future.”
Tim Galea
I rented a home from Clarissa Leary and Bruce Sloan for four years, as Landlords the house was presented well, they fixed any problems quickly and continued to improve the premises to make my home more comfortable.
They were honest and understanding in harder times. Bruce and Clarissa offered me a rent to own property, which I took advantage of, the house was a hall and renovated into a new property inside. The house is to my expectations and work was finished within the timeframe stated.
We where given the options with the house design, number of rooms and colours. Bruce and Clarissa gave us lots of advice and options with owning a new home, financial and general legal. I recommend Clarissa and Bruce both as Landlords and Builders.
Sascha Lynch, Chigwell
Thank you for building us a lovely home and for addressing our concerns and “teething” problems in a prompt and efficient manner.
Lyn and Gerry Dinnessen
Hi Bruce and Clarissa!
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the rest of the team for our wonderful extension!
I have had friends that have had extensions/renovations done recently by other builders and they have had issues with delays and the work not being up to scratch and having to pay more than expected… It made me realise just how lucky we were to have everything go as smoothly as it did.
Once we got council approval, the work began and the team were very considerate and accommodating with starting times and working but still giving us liveable access to the rest of the house. They were great with communicating with us about the different stages and time-frames and the extensions were finished by the expected date given and within budget.

Our Promises

Our Promises aren’t just a strategy to get your business.

  • We do what we promise.
  • We put things right if we let you down.
  • Then we do a little extra to make you happy.

We Call This Our Triple Guarantee

  • We promise to say thank you when you refer us to your friends and family… and we’ll say it with cash… and it’s more than a pocket full of change.
  • We promise to answer the phone, so leave a message if we are busy working on your project. If you aren’t happy with our communications we’ll send one of our people round to do half a day in your garden.
  • We promise to build your home like we’re building it for ourselves. Actually, we are building it for ourselves. Our entire reputation is based on what we build and we’ll do everything we can to protect that reputation.

From replacing your windows to building your dream home, we take every single thing we do seriously. If we don’t make you happy, we’ve failed.

  • New Home Building – we’re there to help with land selection to happy ever after… every single step of the way.

    We’re here for the long haul, so it’s crucial that we have happy customers who tell their friends how we operate. We simply won’t start work until we’re absolutely certain that we know what it is that will make you happy. Your style, your lifestyle, your budget, your expectation… we need to know everything and we’ll spend as much time as it takes to make sure we do.

    And we operate with someone we believe is the best finance broker in the business. Someone who really understands construction… and banks, someone who can arrange a total home build finance package that makes sense.

  • House and Land Packages that have been carefully designed to save you $s and headaches.

    Putting land, home and families together is a jigsaw puzzle and many people see advantages in a total package to save you time and money. Our carefully designed house and land packages can be adjusted to fit with your personal needs and preference.

  • Renovation is the solution for those who love their location.

    Maybe you just need some simple changes to make your home perfect… like an extension, bigger deck or granny flat for children or parents. We understand how much your home means to you and we take the time to listen to your requirements as well as giving you options. The process is the same for every project we undertake. We spend the time and actively listen to what you want, to turn you from customer to referrer.

  • Decks are more than just a platform. We know decks.

    When some people build a deck, what they really want is a party… every weekend. Some want to show off their views. Some like breakfast in the open air. And some want the dog to live outside. And some people just want somewhere that’s neither inside nor outside. We understand decks, and we’ll go out of our way to understand exactly what kind of deck you want.

  • Maintenance to avoid major facelifts… or worse.

    A $165.00 maintenance check could prevent costly major works.

    Minor tasks to gutters, bathroom, drainage, paint, footings, flooring, electrical, windows and doors can save you a small fortune… maybe even a large one.

  • Window replacements can add serious value… simply.

    Add value, add style and better quality by replacing your old windows with new stylish aluminium windows in either single or double glazed. With a small investment this can add a new look and price to your existing home.

  • Insulation is key to saving thousands

    You can spend too much… and you can spend too little. Platinum can give you advice on getting the spend in balance with the benefit in a new home. Insulation can be added to existing homes. Call us for more information that may suit your specific requirements.

  • Property Investment and Development can be very rewarding… financially and personally.

    It’s a balancing act, but it’s an act made easier (and safer) with the right kind of advice. We’ve had our own personal success and over a decade’s experience with both investment and development. We’re in an ideal position to show you how to get it right from how to make it a rewarding and profitable experience whether you’re looking at a single investment property or larger development. With experience in the rental market, option contracts, rental purchases, subdivisions, conveyance and strata plans you can rely on our knowledge and experience.

“It’s taken us more than ten years to build our reputation and we’ll be buggered if we’re going to do anything to stuff it up now.”
Bruce Sloan
“Our reputation is everything to us… and it’s a reputation we’ll fight to keep with everything we have.
If that means putting every available man and woman on the job to get it done right and on time, that’s what we’ll do.

If that means working into the night, that’s what we’ll do.

If it means driving half an hour to look at your land before you buy. That’s what we’ll do.

If it means answering a call immediately, that’s what we’ll do.

And if it means that it costs us a little of our own money to make sure you have every reason to recommend us to your family, friends and colleagues, so be it.”
