Looking for builder reviews?

When you’re building or renovating you need reliable, skilled experts on the tools, not cowboys.

You come across loads of builders on the Internet. But how do you know if they’re any good?

Building or renovating is a big deal. To quote a post from the website Home Builder – Reviews and Advice

“If you’re looking to build or renovate, do yourself a favour and get some understanding of what you’re about to undertake. Building a house is a very expensive and highly complex project – way more than you think if you’ve never done it before.
There are great builders and suppliers out there, but there are rip-off merchants, too. …. Getting it right will make your life fantastic, but getting it wrong could destroy you financially, so prepare!”

As we have said many times on our website, if you’re looking to build or renovate, you need to take your time finding your builder. You need to do your due diligence. You need to ask around, talk to previous clients, check out homes your prospective builders have worked on and read the reviews.

Reviews for builders online

When it comes to reviews, a good place to start is Home Builder – Reviews and Advice. When we wrote this page in April 2023, there were 3,749 thoughts on “Builder Reviews”. Many of the comments were related to contracts, and many were about home building companies and building franchises.

As they site’s creator says:

“I was looking for home building companies and came across a number of builders. However, what I didn’t find was a review site, with customers providing feedback on different building companies.
Does such a site exist? There are plenty of sites for restaurant reviews, and I would have thought deciding which building company to go with would be much more an important decision than deciding where to go out for dinner.”

We take great pride in delivering exceptional service and high-quality workmanship to our clients.

We understand that renovating or building a home can be a significant investment. Which is why we are committed to ensuring that our clients are thrilled with the final result. Our team of professional and licensed building practitioners provides thorough project management, creative solutions, and attention to detail.

The testimonials here had been left on Google. They were written by some of our more recent Auckland clients. We hope they will give you an idea of the quality of our work, our commitment to customer satisfaction, and the level of service you can expect when working with DBS Residential.

What our clients have said about us on Google

It felt safe to work with a local team with good reviews. Steve and Josh came up with a good solution for new access and a storage room under the house, making the most of the space They listened to our ideas and delivered an excellent new room. When drainage became an issue they stuck with us to devise a solution. I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services in the future.

Dan and the team looked after the rebuild of two balconies, a large rotten deck and new deck! They also discovered and completely rebuilt/re-clad a rotted out section of garage/laundry that saved us from disaster further down the track. The quality of the workmanship with the woodwork especially was great, we have some beautiful finishing on our cedar home, with new stairs and decking/balconies throughout. Dan, Steve and their Builders Laurence and Chris helped bring our vision to life, making some great suggestions to enhance the finished product. The team were reliable and worked with us every step of the way to manage our budget, and figure out solutions when problems were discovered. We’ll be using DBS for our next project!

We contracted Dan and his team for our deck renovation project as the old deck has some H&S concerns. We ended up not only with a nice new deck but also having some rotten timbers removed around the house and part of the tilted floor remade. Now I can be confidently living in my house without having to worry about safety. Dan and his team are knowledgeable about the work process and they have the patience and skills to explain this process to non-handy people like me. Appreciate the help. Strongly recommended!

I cannot recommend Steve and the guys more highly. I had a tricky wrap around deck renno which included hard to find bespoke balustrades and the guys did an amazing job. I get the feeling with DBS that they genuinely care about their clients and go to great lengths to get things sorted for them. These guys are great!!
