Character Builders

Your experienced and award winning building team based in Christchurch, NZ since 1997

For over 20 years Character Builders and Character Homes have been building a reputation for renovating, repairing, building and checking homes in Canterbury.
Our teams are known for their skill and commitment to the details that ensure whatever the scale of project, it is completed to your satisfaction. Hundreds of clients, many recommended from others, attest to their communication and management approach that gives them peace of mind and assurance throughout the process!

Having been a significant part of the rebuild and repair programme across Christchurch following the earthquakes, we are now more focussed on renovations, and adding that extra value and space many are looking for in their existing home. Size and scale are not important, as our team adapts and can work on any project to give you the end result you desire.
