Decks, pergolas, fences and retaining walls

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 pergola roof with blinds on the side 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.  Or extending onto the current deck layout, potentially allowing for a covered deck 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.

Retaining walls can help create a flat, bigger area by removing the slope on your section and creating much more useable space. 

Paving and concreting

Outdoor areas are fast becoming extensions to our indoor living areas. Paving to these outdoor areas provides more usable space and a safe area for children to play. Add a covered in UV roof and you have an all weather extension to your home. Buildingworks have the experience and some great ideas to offer.


Sometimes even the smallest of jobs can be difficult if you don’t have the right tools or know how. Buildingworks would be happy to help out. We can also discuss maintenance plans to keep your property in good working order.
