"Chris and his team from Heineke Builders Ltd are ultra-reliable, friendly and excellent workmen. It has been a total pleasure doing business with them.

We had a large, leaky house in Waihi Beach which could have been such a stressful project, but wasn't because of Chris's determination to make sure we were kept well informed of any new developments re building, council, design etc.

I didn't have to worry about a thing and the cost was competitive - many thanks Chris.

The guys lived on site for several months which worked well for them and saved us money. They cleaned up all the outside building mess afterwards AND even spent three days cleaning the dust from all the nooks and crannies inside of the house. All part of the service apparently!

The new cladding, bathroom, exterior stairs etc look magnificent. Well done! If ever we need another job doing, Heineke Builders Ltd are first on our list - no matter where we are in New Zealand. Thanks guys."

As his business and team have grown his high standards have been maintained – he chooses excellent employees and trains his apprentices really well. I wouldn’t use any other builder for any work, large or small."

“We hired Heineke Builders to renovate our en-suite as the previous en-suite was leaking.  The builders thoroughly checked and quoted the job before we signed the contract.


The builders and contractors (electrician, plumber etc) were very professional, friendly and respectful of our property.  We were extremely pleased with the final result and would recommend Heineke Builders.”

"Heineke Builders were recommended to me by my Architect (a long time consultant from previous projects).

Based on this recommendation we engaged Heineke Builders to undertake a significant redevelopment project requiring the conversion of an old historic earthquake prone picture theatre in Papakura into an modern block of apartments and shops.

This was a large and complex project requiring a flexible and intelligent approach from our builders to meet the inevitable challenges we encountered as we progressed through the construction programme to deliver a high quality productive building from a run down, derelict and partially vacant old building.

This also required a significant upgrade to the services in the building to meet current fire and acoustic building standards along with earthquake and leaky building code requirements.

As clients we were very pleased with the outcome and enjoyed working with Heineke Builders who were always professional, resolved problems quickly and effectively and showed initiative when dealing with the myriad of consultants engaged on the project as we progressed through the rebuild project. They often created very cost effective solutions with civil and acoustic engineering consultants.

Another important difference with Heineke Builders has been their after sales service which has been nothing short of excellent.

Most building companies I have dealt with in the past have been very reluctant to return to repair anything under warranty. Not so with Heineke Builders who have always returned to ensure any matters were appropriately repaired and have actively enforced sub-contractors or product suppliers to honour their respective workmanship warranties. For example they arranged for a dishwasher to be replaced soon after the project was completed and within the product manufacturers warranty period. A new one was quickly reinstalled without cost. Another example was a burnt out automatic door locking mechanism, which proved to be a difficult problem to repair. Heineke Builders returned quickly and without fanfare on several occasions, re-worked the door closing design to avoid a repeat occurrence and got the product supplier to replace the burned out auto locking machine under warranty.

They always apply a high degree of common sense to problems and get the results we want.

They continue to address the ongoing maintenance of the building and recently arranged for the replacement of the roof guttering which was not part of the original re-build of the building.

As a client this is an important point of difference.

As a developer and hold Investor that always retains ownership of our properties we place high value on the quality of the build, compliance and workmanship.

We found Heineke Builders to be best of breed when delivering on this mandate and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone seeking a quality builder."

Chris delivered exceptional results for me.

The project was quite complex, involving the replacement of a large deck and retaining wall situated on a cliff overlooking Manukau Harbour.

Chris demonstrated remarkable collaboration with the architect throughout the development of the project brief, engaging in regular meetings and reviews.

Commencing construction on schedule, Chris provided weekly progress updates and promptly alerted me to any unforeseen challenges that arose. Chris's swift provision of advice and quotes minimised any delays caused by unexpected issues.

Maintaining adherence to the budget, Chris successfully completed a breathtaking deck that truly enhances the panoramic views of the Harbour.

Throughout the entire project, Chris remained approachable, supportive, proactive, and consistently maintained a high level of professionalism.

I wholeheartedly endorse Chris and Heineke Builders.

Heineke Builders Ltd. undertook a remediation contract at our home on which the imported exterior plywood panels had severely deteriorated.

The home is on three levels and required considerable safety, scaffolding, material supply and elimination, and project planning to remove existing materials and replace these with a similar treated product to make good.

Various unseen/concealed building deterioration issues were identified during the remedy process requiring specialist attention, undertaken with expert care and diligence by the builders.

Such was the case, that the task took longer than anticipated through the thoroughness of undertaking to ensure that the preparation and repair was of the highest quality.

The communication between the builder and his staff with the customer was first class. Respect for the client was very good considering that the access to various building areas, was through the home. The remedy process has been quite disruptive on site; however, the end result is most satisfactory with the completed project brining the home back to a better than original condition.

The builders were innovative and open minded to various methods of repair notwithstanding that the methods utilised needed to be out of the ordinary. As owners, we remained residing in the home throughout without too much inconvenience.

In all, we are satisfied that the project, although not completed on time due to issues beyond the builders' control, has been nothing but a gratifying experience and accordingly we would be very pleased to recommend Heineke Builders Ltd to other homeowners who require remedial building work to be undertaken and make good, defects or deterioration on their home.
