from a few of our Customers

We rebuilt our earthquake damaged home in Halswell with HGF Construction over an 8 month construction period from June 2016 to February 2017.
After the failure of two building companies we had previously tried to build with, we were cautious about engaging a solo builder to do our build. We engaged Henry after being introduced by a third party and viewed a couple of other builds he had in progress. It helped that he was a Certified Builders member which offered reassurance with their build guarantee.
Our build started without delay in June last year and reached all the required progress milestones without hassle and on time. Our major worry was construction delays would stretch our cash flow during construction but this concern proved to be unfounded.
Our fabulous looking home was completed on time and on budget by February of this year as promised.
Henry was very easy to work with in regards to actual building matters, he was very professional in all his dealings with us and remained calm even when inevitable pressure points occurred. All of his subcontractors also delivered on time and as budgeted.
On the finance front Katy was also great to deal with and was really reassuring throughout the process as progress payments were required.
We would totally recommend Henry and Katy for a building project of any size.

HGF Builders built a large deck and fence for me outside my lounge doors. Their advice in guiding me through all the timber and design options was really appreciated, the work was undertaken without delay, and great workmanship to boot! Even the neighbours looking over the fence were impressed! I definitely recommend HGF Builders to others and will use them again when the time comes.

HGF Builders were fantastic to work with and Henry was very approachable and professional throughout the whole building work. He completely renovated our home, added an extension and carried out some major alterations.We wouldn’t hesitate to use HGF Builders again. Thank you so much.
