Communication, efficiency and professionalism are what sets Custom Outdoor apart from the rest and we now have an outdoor space that we love and will see our busy growing family through for many years to come!”



“Very happy. Matt was great from the start, helping us through some of the key decisions and working with us through all the COVID regs and around us stuck WFH. Glenn and the on-site team were thoroughly professional and respectful of our property. Balcony looks great, can’t wait for the shops to open up so we can get some chairs and table out there!”



“Fantastic experience with Custom Outdoor Living. Communication throughout the whole project has been very professional, and we’re very happy with the finished product of our carport and patio. A lot of care was taken, especially with little details that we didn’t even think about, that made all the difference.”



“They turned up on time, every time; materials were delivered when they were supposed to, and any changes or variations were costed immediately and put in writing so I always knew exactly how much I was paying, so there were no surprises.

I would use this company again.”



“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Custom Outdoor Living to anyone wanting quality. Special thanks to the Admin team who put in a staggering amount of work in dealing with our council to obtain our building permit.

A job well done Thank you!“

Carrum Downs

“My experience with Matt, Demi, Glen and the team was amazing from Day 1, Matt quoted the work and project managed the job through to completion.
We were kept informed, and felt supported through the process, the entire team were punctual, friendly and kept everything neat & tidy..
They managed to navigate the complexities of lockdowns and backlogs with what appeared to be little effort, and the time to build was spot on.
The end product is better than imagined. If you are looking for reliable, punctual quality service don’t look any further than custom outdoor living.”


Dandenong North

“We can’t thank Matt and his team enough for transforming our outdoor area into something that we love and are enjoying every single day. Right from the first time Matt came to check out the site he was so professional and thorough. We knew what was happening every step of the way. He consistently rang to let us know what was happening with permits etc and start dates. The old area was demolished in July and it was completely finished by September. Every single tradesman was so professional and the site Manager Glen was amazing we can’t thank him enough as he went far beyond all expectations. If you want perfection and on time delivery don’t look past Custom Outdoor Living. Thanks Matt.”



“The company clearly prides itself on its reputation and customer service – the experience was totally positive and seamless.

Highly recommend!
