Monique Bond - IC Frith
I have worked with Woodend Builders since early 2013, and they have consistently been appointed the preferred builders to multiple body corporate earthquake claims, ranging from domestic to commercial. I have found them excellent to deal with. They are problem solvers, have great communication skills and have delivered. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to engage with a professional and trusted building company, in the knowledge that you are working with one of the longest established and best building companies in Canterbury.
Tania McKenze - Rangiora
Building at any time can be a mind field but when it is your first time it is even more daunting. From the first meeting we had with Woodend Builders we had no hesitation putting our dream project in their hands. Shaughan and Mitchell guided us through the process and found solutions to any issue that arose. The building team are easy to communicate with, patient and go out of their way to make sure you understand things. They are brilliant at their craft. Our home is everything we dreamed off thanks to Woodend Builders
Matt & Christy Joli – Loburn
When looking to build our third house we had a lot of options before us, having worked within the industry for the last 23 years, we have come across a lot of builders. Woodend Builders stood out as a great team. The choice to go with Mitch and Shaughan soon showed to be the right one, their communication and skill set, kept things moving without the compromise of quality. This became apparent very early in the build and continued to the end of the project. Shaughan’s presence draws so much respect due to his humbleness and experience, this brings the best out of all those around him, while Mitch’s down to earth realism keeps everyone motivated and on task. As father and son they complement each other perfectly. Their staff continued to go above and beyond, Christy enjoyed the fact that whenever she was on site she felt they always made her comfortable and aware of what was happening. The result for us was a build that was completed under program to a high quality of finish.
Alice Strange – Cheviot
We chose Woodend Builders to undertake the complete renovation of our property in Cheviot. Mitchell's skilled and experienced team has delivered a superb result, built with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. We are completely delighted with our newly renovated home and would recommend Woodend Builders without hesitation.
Owen & George Paterson - Rangiora
Thanks to Woodend Builders’ careful costings, workmanship and attention to detail the building of our two properties, and North Canterbury’s new radio station, was almost completely stress-free. We would certainly look to them again with complete confidence for any future construction needs whether large or small.
Helen & Les – Devlin Real Estate Rangiora
Woodend Builders have completed commercial and residential projects for us and we endorse their quality workmanship and ability to complete architectural concepts with skill and imagination. A great team effort.
We have engaged Woodend Builders Ltd to undertake and project-manage a six-figure alteration and renovation on our home at 400 Boundary Road, Ashley, North Canterbury. We spoke with Shaughan James early in the project, before the drawing up of final plans by our designer. His advice and guidance proved invaluable. We quickly formed the view that Woodend Builders was the obvious choice to undertake the work and our faith has been entirely justified. The team has been extremely well-organised and efficient. They clearly have an excellent working relationship with their subcontractors and the council. They have kept us well informed throughout the project and have been very successful in minimising the disruption - particularly important given that we run a home-based business. The work has involved a number of technical challenges, which they worked through carefully and thoughtfully. The result, to our untrained eye, looks fantastic and we would not hesitate to recommend Woodend Builders to our friends. We would, without question, use them again
David Leech - Architectural Designer
We engaged Woodend Builders between 2008-2009 to build a residential dwelling that I had designed for ourselves for a site in 'The Oaks' subdivision Rangiora. The design, although not complicated had a reasonably high degree of detail and we were quite particular about the finish. We needed a builder who was not only able to take our ideas through to completion, but was approachable, open to discussion and flexible enough to accommodate some specific trades that we were arranging. I would have no reservation in recommending Woodend Builders for a future building project. They had a professional yet personal manner which allowed for a comfortable builder/client relationship. Their workmanship was of high standard, they were knowledgeable, organised and obliging.
Kane Hampton – Sales Manager
We built with Woodend Builders Ltd on our 10 acre block. We were careful to choose a “local” builder whose reputation goes back 3 generations in North Canterbury as you can’t plan for every contingency and we wanted a professional we could trust. I guess I called with a lot of ideas and changes as I still have Shaughan’s home phone number committed to memory! Nothing was ever a problem and the final product has met our expectations and that’s saying something! As a local real estate agent in Rangiora for the last 14 years I know most of the builders and was impressed with both the quality and pride in finish and the easy and friendly manner of Shaughan and Mitch throughout the process. I have no hesitation in continuing to recommend Woodend Builders and have recently sold a home they built in Arlington subdivision to a very satisfied Christchurch couple. Building doesn’t need to be hard!
