Testimonials

We are absolutely totally delighted with all the work carried out.  We have been renovating our home for 15 years and this is the first time we have had first class service.  The work of your trades staff has been excellent and they have been a pleasure to have around.  We would highly recommend Buildingworks to anyone embarking on a renovation project.

Brendon and his team recently successfully completed a significant renovation for us including a bathroom, separate toilet, wet room and surrounding rooms.

From the onset he displayed integrity and talked us through the project, providing expert guidance and always came with an alternative and not a problem, which resulted in a fantastic outcome.

Brendon constantly kept us up to date on the progress of the project and co-ordinated his team (and one or two extra we threw at him) for a tidy, efficient, timely quality finish. His estimates were bang on with very little variance, mostly introduced by us.

We cannot speak highly enough of the job Brendon and his team did and he went out of his way to keep us informed and are ecstatic about the finished result.

We would not hesitate to use his expertise again and highly recommend Brendon to everyone who wants to improve or build their home.

Elsie and Gary Hulst

Brendon and his boys have just completed renovations to my home - replacing toilet and laundry windows, removing french doors and ranch sliders and replacing them with stacker doors, replacing kitchen tiles, building a new cupboard for hotwater cylinder, building new stairs and landing to the backdoor, replacing boarding around base of house, replacing Gib on nearly all the ceilings.

I am more than satisfied with the workmanship and most impressed with the way my home was left so neat and tidy everyday.

I would recommend Brendon and the team to anybody wanting any kind of building or construction.

Brendon and his team recently completed a bathroom renovation for us. As our home is over 100 years old it was a bit scary seeing the room stripped back to the bones but it needed to be done to have some straight and level surfaces to work with. We cannot speak highly enough of the job Brendon and his team did and are really happy with the finished result – a beautifully finished tiled bathroom.

Brendon's professionalism was outstanding. He bought allied tradesmen (plumber and gasfitter) with him when he came to do the estimate – which was very close to the final cost. He communicated well, co-ordinated the team for a timely job completion and they were tidy and efficient the whole way through.

We would not hesitate to use his expertise again.

Brendon from Buildingworks worked in partnership with me to design and build my new home.  Brendon discussed and provided feedback to my design ideas using his experience and expertise as to what would work best from a building perspective.  Different types of materials were discussed and Brendon provided me with good lead time as to when I needed to start thinking about and deciding on certain materials and design features.  Throughout the project Buildingworks provided open and honest communication with respect to design amendments, timeframes and an update on costs.  Brendon was always contactable and willing to answer any questions or ideas I wanted to discuss with him.  The Buildingworks team provided a top quality construction job which was also commented on by the Council building inspectors.  The team are also really nice guys who respected my property and left the site safe and tidy at the end of each day.  I am delighted with my new home and love how we have utilised space on the property and gained maximum sunlight and privacy.  This was my first homebuild and I am really pleased with how stress free the whole project was!  I would definitely undertake another building project with Brendon and the Buildingworks team.

Buildingworks was great! My bathroom renovation went very smoothly, I was kept updated with progress and consulted for decisions as they came up. Buildingworks gave me good advice with regard to which bathroom fixtures would suit my renovation and why. I am delighted with the result, I have two stunning, contemporary bathrooms... Thanks Buildingworks,

Buildingworks recently completed the following jobs: shelving in 2 wardrobes and a hall cupboard, repair borer ridden stairs, install washing line in carport, install new front and carport doors, replace 2 small pieces exterior capping and repair sticky ranch sliding door. All work was completed within timeframes, budget and to a high standard. Brendon offered cost saving options and information as to limitations or benefits of using different materials and how job could be completed to achieve desired result. All work areas were cleared and cleaned very well after work completed. Communication was excellent and Brendon was on time and responsive to all requests. Not all builders would approach a bunch of small jobs with the level of professionalism Brendon displayed and for that I was truly appreciative. Although they were only small it is so reassuring to have them done and they have made such a difference to our household.
Many thanks and all the best,
Krista Kilmartin

Brendon and the team carried out major repairs on my home - removed the roof, erected a new frame for the new roof - replaced 15 windows, 2 sliding doors and 1 laundry door and completely renovated the bathroom.  All of which were carried out in a professional manner, I am completely satisfied with the workmanship and would contact Buildingworks again if I needed any further work.  Brendon had organised the subcontractors well so there were no delays.  Buildingworks were polite and importantly tidied up and removed rubbish at the end of the job.

Initially I found it hard to find builders from Whangarei, due to us living in Auckland. I chanced upon the Buildingworks website. It was informative, clean and easy to navigate. Once I contacted them they replied instantly and because of this I went for Brendon and his team.

Although not a huge job by their standards, Buildingworks were professional, accommodating and sensitive to my Mum’s needs.  The work was a high quality and Brendon gave us progress reports at every opportunity.  Brendon is approachable, intuitive and a down to earth individual.  His patience in seeing things through with the upmost care and quality left us feeling good that we had made the right decision to go with his company.

All in all, Buildingworks are dependable, trustworthy and they listen.  I trust their workmanship and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to prospective clients.  I am extremely happy with Brendon and his team and will definitely use them again.

Thank you for the opportunity to express our thanks and appreciation for the work carried out on our property.  
 
We decided as our family expanded to add an additional room and office to our existing 3 bedroom house and approached Buildingworks to quote us for this work (as they had been recommended to us).  We were very impressed with the professional and efficient way that they dealt with us and so building commenced on our property.  I had heard of others who had had trouble with the building process but our complete build went off without a hitch or a concern.  The team that worked on the building were always there when they said and worked tirelessly to ensure time frames were adhered to.  I appreciated the way that they ensured each day that things were left tidy and safe for my son to at least be outside.  I also found it very helpful that they kept us informed as to the progress and what to expect as each day went on. The Council inspectors at one point even commented on the high standard of work that they were carrying out. 
We are now happily living in our new extension and would highly recommend Buildingworks to others.  I am happy to give a verbal reference to anybody should they wish to contact me.

Brendon constructed large feature screening to form a backdrop to our subtropical back garden.

He translated our ideas accurately and gave advice on building aspects of the construction. He completed the job efficiently and quickly. We found at all times he was friendly, professional and extremely trustworthy.

We are very happy with the finished screening and would certainly use Brendon for building and landscaping projects we may have in the future. We can thoroughly recommend him.
