Frequent Questions

Do you offer pensioner discounts for fencing?

Yes we do. We believe that small improvements around your property add significant value and as such are happy to support pensioners in their quest to improve on their home.

What is the smallest job you will take on?

We are happy to accept projects from just a few metres to a few hundred metres. Or, in the case of repair or maintenance, we will attend to all job requests but in instances such as nailing back on a couple of fence boards, it may be more economical for you to get a friend or family member to do it for you.

Do you offer free quotes?

We are very happy to provide free quotes. Just make contact with us here and we will arrange a time to visit with you to discuss your requirements

Do I need a permit to build a fence or retaining wall?

For outdoor structures like fences, decks and retaining walls, the main reason you may require a consent if you're building over a certain height. If you're building below the height limit set in the Building Act, you won't require a building consent. However, the Act still requires you to make sure that all work complies with the Building Code. Generally, you will need consent for a retaining wall if it is over 1.5mtrs high or has a building or driveway near the top. Sometimes there is an exception to the rule in that even if you don't need a building consent, your structure may be affected by other rules in the district and regional plans. But there is no need for you to worry about that right now as we can advise you upon a site visit, or even sometimes over the phone. Call us, we can help you.

Do you offer any warranties on your work?

YES. All our work is built to a strict building code and we are happy to warrant same. Each task has a different requirement which makes it difficult to give definite detail in brief. However, the short answer is, Yes, we guarantee our products and workmanship. Once we know the detail of your work, we can give you clear details on what warranty will apply.

Do you have any insurance cover while working on my property?

Yes. We have complete cover for any accidents or damage that may occur which we are responsible for. This includes property and persons.

Our team consists of well experienced tradesmen with each of them specialising in particular skills. Our business owner, Nick, will be the one who evaluates your project and he will appoint the team members who are the most proficient in your particular requirements. This enables the project to be completed in the shortest period of time with the best possible outcome.
