Our ability to ensure consistent quality makes us at Character Builders stand out from the competition. We have processes and procedures that prioritise quality from the very beginning of your project. It then remains a consistent feature throughout the build until the work is fully completed.

We will fully project manage your renovation or new build, making sure the work stays within budget and is completed according to the schedule. We also manage all construction trades, companies, and suppliers that will be involved at various stages on your Christchurch site, with the aim of ensuring the entire build runs smoothly.

When we are providing building services on your home, our standards of communication will be excellent, whether we are communicating with you or the subcontractors and other companies in Christchurch involved in the build.

How to Choose the Right Builder
Getting the right builder for your project can be a tricky process. Here are three steps that can help you make the best decision for your requirements.
- Carefully Consider the Quote
Read through the quote carefully, checking the breakdown of costs and the various other elements. If something doesn’t make sense, looks too good to be true, or you simply have a question, raise the issue with the builder. It is better you get the answer now than later.
- Ask Questions About the Schedule
Make sure you get detailed information on the schedule. After all, timescales are important, especially on renovation projects, as you will need to know when you can get back to life as normal.
- Look into Their Capabilities
Finally, check the capabilities of the builder in as much detail as possible. Read testimonials on their website, look at their project portfolio, and check their accreditations and affiliations. Are they Certified Builders, for example?
It is also worthwhile asking about specific expertise and experience related to the project you are planning. The objective of these checks is to feel as comfortable as possible that the builder can deliver on what they are promising.
