Decks, Pergolas, Fences & Retaining Walls

Making Building Projects Easy

A well designed deck can make a remarkable difference to the useable space of your property. Outdoor living is an important aspect of the New Zealand lifestyle, not only do you need space on decks for al fresco dining but also herb gardens, plants, children’s vehicles and more! Many houses may feature multiple deck locations to allow for sun or shade at certain times of the day.  By adding a steel or timber pergola roof you have a complete outdoor room to enjoy all seasons of the year. 

We can also assist you to repair your current deck due to rotten or unstable areas.  Have you considered extending onto the current deck layout, potentially allowing for a covered deck area.  

Retaining walls can help create a flat, bigger area by removing the slope on your section and creating much more useable space.   Include fencing on top to create a safe play or parking area.

The style of a fence can transform the look of your home and also provide privacy and security for your household.  There are a number of different options available to create the look you want to achieve, by discussing your requirements with us we can help design a solution to fit your needs.

What Our Clients Are Saying


I am super happy with the work you guys have done. I love my house now.  I was really impressed with all Buildingworks staff - helpful, informative and professional.

V Wright - Pergola installation and exterior house paint

We have used Buildingworks for a number of years for various projects, including home renovation, maintenance, new build and house painting.  Throughout this time we have found the overall service and standard of work consistently excellent, with a high level of communication.  Brendon and Steph have a skilled team which really does deliver.  With Buildingworks we are able to trust that any job big or small will be completed to a very high standard. 

Karl and Renee Willis

We recently replaced our entire kitchen and carried out bathroom renovations. Buildingworks was recommended to us by the kitchen designers to carry out all the preparation work and other aspects of the renovation. We were very happy with the work they did and as there were several different trades involved, it was a great relief not to have to engage them all ourselves and then project manage their work. Brendan organised all of that and made sure they all turned up when they were supposed to and did whatever they needed to do to allow the next stage of the work to be completed – that removed a lot of potential stress for us. The tradesmen were all skilled professionals and we were very pleased with the quality of their work. Brendan even sent someone along to clean and tidy our house at the end of the project – a nice touch! We would have no hesitation in recommending Buildingworks for renovation projects.

Alistair - kitchen and bathroom renovation

Renovating the bathroom for the first time in 25 years was rather daunting.  I really appreciated Brendon’s ability to listen to what I wanted, offer advice, but find a way to make what I wanted work.

Communication was the key.  Even though I know that my project was small in the scheme of things, I felt like I had 100% of the work staffs attention, from start to finish.  Also, this is the only building project where things started on time, stuck to plan, and stayed on budget, except for a couple of hidden issues discovered along the way.  

Thanks to the entire team!

Melinda - bathroom renovation

Brendon and the rest of the team at Buildingworks did a fantastic job on the renovation of our 1912 bungalow.  Brendon communicated well with us throughout the project, so there were no surprises on completion.  Brendon’s knowledge and experience, as well as the capabilities of the rest of his team enabled the project to run smoothly and be completed on time.  We are extremely happy with our renovation, we would definitely use them again for any future building projects – big or small. 

Josh and Kim - bungalow renovation

Thank you all for the nice job done, we are very happy.

Patty and David Wilson - bathroom renovation

Buildingworks constructed a 25 metre retaining wall on our property.  Their excellence in organising the project and the two builders that did the job was top notch.  Will use them again for sure.  Please pass on my thanks to staff concerned for a great job, I passed on to my neighbour your firms phone number as needs a price for a big job there.  Thanks Buildingworks.

Harry - retaining wall and fencing

Thank you to the Buildingworks team for the amazing work they have done for me and to you in the office as well.  When I have saved enough money for the next lot of work that needs to be done I shall be back in touch.

Wendy - building and repairs

Thanks so much to you Brendon and your wonderful team of contractors, they were great guys - friendly, easy to work with and very high standard of workmanship and your efficient management of the project made it so much less stressful.

Lyndie - kitchen renovation

Thanks again to Brendon and the team, I appreciate that this wasn’t the most straight forward job and there were a couple of other builders that obviously avoided having to take on a difficult project, so I am really thankful that you helped us out and gave us such a great ensuite.  We’re really stoked with the outcome and would definitely recommend Buildingworks to anyone looking for a builder.
