In these times of leaky building syndromes and shoddy service it is all the more pleasing to come across a company who stands by their product to the full, even when a minor fault develops out of their control. My wife and I recently moved into a house that had been built approximately six years previously by Shore Build Ltd. We decided to repaint the house and while this was being carried out the painter discovered where a wooden cedar handrail on the deck had some patches of rot at the joins. I hasten to say this was only the rail capping and in no way involved structural parts of the deck or railing which was sound. We phoned Ash Hare who immediately said, not a problem, we will fix that easy. Sure enough he came round and inspected the railing, advised us what the problem was and what he would do to fix it. Some time later a builder appeared and replaced the railing. This was all done cheerfully. My understanding is that the original material used was not of the specification that should have been supplied by the timber merchants, so the error was not on the part of Shore Build. As a result of this service supplied to us, as subsequent purchasers of the building, I have no hesitation in recommending Shore Build as a builder of the highest standard.

There were so many things that we were pleased about with the job that Ash and his team did that I could write a recommendation pages long. However, I thought I would concentrate on a couple of key points that really impressed.

Firstly, was the fact that Ash actually listened to what we wanted. He came up with some great ideas but ultimately we felt that he had really listened to us and understood what we wanted.

Secondly was the respect that he, his team and everyone involved in job gave, my family, my home and the materials/tools that they used.

The job involved several parties and everyone that came round to our home was polite, professional and really cared about the job that they did. We are very happy to recommend Ash and are already working with him on several further jobs in our home - which ultimately shows how happy we were. Please feel free to contact me on 021 257 3747 to verify this.

I am pleased to provide a testimonial for Shore Build Ltd.

Shore Build did a house renovation on my 1903 villa which involved basically demolishing the rear third of the house and rebuilding it. This took approximately four months and my family and I continued to live in the home whilst this work was being done.

Having up to four builders working in our home for this period posed no problems due to their professional and personal approach to the project. Likewise their subcontractors were the same - professional and courteous.

Shore Build delivered totally in every respect. Everything was completed in a timely manner. Appointments were kept and things got done when they were supposed to.

As my home is an old villa it was important that the work and style was in keeping with the age of the house. Shore Build's workmanship was excellent and detailed. They did not skimp. At the conclusion of the project, their 'after sales' service in completing those small extra details was also excellent and no request was declined or challenged.

I never had one disagreement with Shore Build or their staff before, during or after the project. I have found them to be honest and of the highest integrity. I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending them to anyone else.

I invite anybody to telephone me on 021-958-481 to discuss this testimonial further.

I was recommended by architects Salmond Reed to use Shore Build Ltd for the new deck extension and alterations to the Cavalier Tavern.

As the Cavalier is an historic building, strict criteria had to be adhered to and I was assured that all work undertaken would be of the high standard required. The professional manner and standard of workmanship including all sub-contractors was excellent and this can be seen in the finished result.

I have no hesitation in recommending Shore Build Ltd for any future projects and am delighted with the job they have done for me.

Ray Wilson, Owner - Cavalier Tavern


I was recommended to Ash Hare of Shore Build Ltd by Ray Wilson, owner of the Cavalier Tavern.

I had a terrible experience with a local builder who walked off my job (literally) whilst not completing $120,000.00 worth of work he had been paid for and leaving us with no water, no toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities; exposed wires and cables and bare beams holding the walls up. After a phone call from Ray, Ash came around and took the whole project on and finished it to a no less than excellent standard in four months while we were still living there.

My project was a complete rebuild of a lean-to on a 1910 villa and an 80sq metre apartment underneath the house.

I cannot recommend Ash and his team enough. They were all top people to deal with, explained everything thoroughly and were very easy to communicate with. Nothing was ever a problem. Even when Ash had been paid and finished the job he is always available for follow up services. Ash makes renovation and building such a relaxed and easy experience I only wish I had known of Shore Build in the first place.

Shore Build Ltd is very highly recommended by me - thanks Ash.

Serena Shaw, Devonport
