Licenced Builders in Christchurch

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

Let’s work

For over 20 years Character Builders 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 home check 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.

Our Services

"Their quality of work is of very high standard. And they have been very patient with us.
We cannot find fault with them."


Project Showcase

Character Builders is proud to showcase the full extent of our work from New Builds, to renovations and our "Sympathetic Restorative" work on character homes.

Our showcase is designed to give you a glimpse of each project, its scale, scope, costs and times frames, along with some great pictures to demonstrate our workmanship and the wide scope of our work.
Of course this is just a snapshot, and we have numerous other records that can further back our capabilities and give you the confidence to consider us as a builder or renovator of your home!
