I contacted Gareth on recommendation from a family member. I had purchased a number of pre-fab classrooms from earthquake damaged schools that I wanted turned in to transportable homes. Gareth not only carried out the transformation of these buildings, he also offered input and solutions in the design phase and provided direction on ways to stay within my tight budget. Gareth and his team are quality builders who I will certainly use in future and would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Neil – Yaldhurst, Christchurch

Gareth and his team have done a number of jobs for us over the years – added an extra bathroom, built a fabulous deck, a new fence and now have just ripped out our kitchen and oversaw putting in a new one. Gareth is fabulous, very tidy, always willing to go the extra mile (took all the rubbish to the dump) and does a wonderful professional job every time – he has an expert eye for detail. He also has a raft of skilled tradesman at his fingertips too! We have no hesitation in recommending him no matter how big or small the job is. He will be there when he says and we would never use anyone else.

Mike and Sandy – Merivale, Christchurch

We took Gareth on to undertake our first real renovations that required fairly substantial work. Like many people, we employ professionals to do work that we just don’t know how to do. This however, can be unnerving as you are putting total trust in someone else.  From the moment Gareth and his foreman Dan arrived to assess what work was required, throughout the whole build and until completion, there was never a time we did not know what was going on. Further still, we were always told why something was being done. In fact, we learnt an awful lot about different construction methods and why it was done in a certain way…

Darren and Kerry – Waikuku Beach, North Canterbury

In 2013, following the Christchurch earthquakes, Karen and I engaged Gareth Davis Builders to rebuild a home on the site of our severely damaged former house. The new home was architecturally designed to be built of timber weather boards to both replicate the home we lost and reflect the homes in the street. The design required a significant amount of detail finish particularly in the exterior weatherboard cladding. Gareth’s skills and the skills of his preferred sub trades have given us a superb executive home while retaining the classical character lines on the exterior to mimic the surrounding homes…
