Your Dreams, Nailed Together.

"Building our new home in Prebbleton with Allan and Rachel was an extremely enjoyable experience.  From the general concept and design to the finished product, they were extremely helpful, professional and nothing was a problem.  Rachel's project management coupled with Allan's building experience helped us build our dream house at a very reasonable price, in very good time.  It was fantastic to have the flexibility to make our own decisions on every individual element of the house, but still have the Kershaw's experience to call on when required.  We will definitely build with Kershaw Builders again."  Kelly & Dayle Eathorne, Prebbleton



"We chose Kershaw Builders to build our home in 2009/2010, having received good reports about the quality of their work from another builder.  We have never regretted our decision - all the work on our home was completed to a high standard, and we really appreciated the hard work, honesty, and helpful attitude of everyone we dealt with.  As a small family business, we found Kershaw Builders to be very approachable and accessible choice - whenever we had questions or were unsure about a decision we were able to spend time discussing the options available to us until we felt comfortable going ahead.   We are particularly grateful to Rachel, who put so much effort into bringing together all the necessary contacts and resources for building our home, from the planning stages right up until completion.  She went well beyond the call of duty in helping us, and was always a pleasure to deal with.  Most importantly our home was completed before the earthquakes and has withstood all the quakes very well.  When EQC came through to check our house they commented that it showed very little sign of any earthquake damage at all, and were really impressed with how it handled it.  We highly recommend Kershaw Builders to anyone considering building a home in Christchurch, both for the high quality of work they produce and helpful attitudes of everyone we dealt with."  Byron and Sara Cornish, Belfast



"Words are not enough to express our joy, pleasure, happiness and thanks to you for making our DREAM HOUSE come true.  You were a wonderful builder Allan with a great vision of how to finalise things.  Your amazing attention to all details of our plan was overwhelming.  And you Rachel, a big thank you for being the project manager of building this house.  Your very much care from scratch up to receiving the key of the house was unbelievable.  Thank you for managing all best quality trades with the best prices in the market.  We really can't thank you enough. We LOVE YOU and wish you all the best." Mosa and Mona Bekheet, Broken Run

"Al and Rachel have been fantastic to work with.  We are extremely happy with our new house which has been built to such a high standard.  They make a great team and were so professional and approachable making it a very enjoyable process. Rachel worked amazingly hard to ensure all our requests were met and we were kept in the loop with every stage.  We would highly recommend them." Chris and Trudi Irvine, Halswell

"We wish to thank Kershaw Builders for the exceptional job they did in building our family home. Rachel and Allan offer a very hands-on approach, that makes your build feel unique. This personal attention from our first meeting, at design concept, through to handing over the keys meant that everything was well handled and thought through. I highly recommend Kershaw Builders to anyone who is thinking of building - they really do deliver!" Vanessa and Leighton Johnston, Prebbleton

"Kershaw Builders were a pleasure to deal with. From the initial consultations with Rachel, to the onsite work with Allan, both were very approachable and professional. They were able to offer us a competitive fixed price contract and backed this up with a quality job. There were no hidden surprises, and the work was carried out in a timely manner. They were happy to accommodate all our requests, even if it meant the odd change here and there. We have recommended Kershaw Builders to friends who are looking to build and will continue to do so!” Randell & Vicki Townsend, Prebbleton

"We have had the pleasure of building with Kershaw Builders a few times now.  For us its all about a good fair price, flexibility in the design & build process, no hard sell and most importantly a great outcome – these boxes have been ticked every time.  We will certainly be building with Allan and Rachel again in the future.” Todd and Clare Cassie, Middleton

"We have known Al and Rachel for approximately 4 years. Al built the house we are currently living in. The build was exceedingly well managed. Al and Rachel and their team of subcontractors worked as a team to complete a well-constructed home. I was so satisfied with the workmanship and advice I was given by Kershaw Builders that we contacted them again when we decided to build another house.  We highly recommend Kershaw Builders to family and friends when they are thinking about building.” Todd and Sarah Hartley, Lincoln and Temuka

"When we decided to build a new home, we presented the concept to Rachel on a scrap of paper. She returned with a plan that was almost exactly what we were seeking, and the price measured up to other costings we obtained.  We had no previous experience at building, and Rachel was excellent in guiding us through the complete process, giving advice and visiting suppliers with us. We were involved every step of the build and felt empowered through the whole process. Allan and Rachel made sure everything went smoothly and to our wishes. Our decision to build with Allan and Rachel was a smart choice. We almost went with a standard plan with one of the building companies, and we are so pleased we decided to build with Kershaw Builders instead. We have been in our home 3 years and love every minute living here. If we ever build again, we will definitely call on Allan and Rachel.” Don and Carolyn Fletcher, Wigram
