As homeowners of the 2021 Registered Master Builders award winning home, we would like to say we are extremely proud and grateful to the team at Premium Homes.

Andrew stood by us through two and a half years of difficult times while we negotiated a successful resolution with our insurance company, which enabled us to manage our own repair.

As this was Phillipa’s family home we wanted to preserve and enhance many of its original features while creating something new and modern.

The project was a pleasurable experience through Premium Homes’ superb craftsmanship, attention to detail, continuous communication and organisation skills. The team was dedicated to the project, and this resulted in a unique house, which we are delighted to call home.

The exchange of ideas between us and the builders was so rewarding and resulted in a finish beyond our initial vision.

“We want to thank you all for the brilliant transformation of our house. The result is wonderful, but the experience was also excellent. Your communication was superb, you were on budget and on time - no mean feat with our 100-year-old house - and added the unforeseen along the way.

So, again, we appreciate your care of us and our home. Thank you.”

Phillipa and Lawson

"We feel that Premium Homes are the builders benchmark for excellence and you can be proud of another success. "

"When EQC said  "Maybe the floors are out of level again.. get yourselves an Engineer’s report"  Premium Homes took the ball and ran with it from that very first phone call we had.

They built rapport from day one and with a Master Builder's guarantee with experience and  testimonials to back them, they instilled confidence that they were well qualified and would navigate us through to a successful, quality EQC repair.

Little did we appreciate the attention to detail, advocacy of issues to EQC and a pride in workmanship that far exceeded our expectations of an early 1900 rental.

What started as an EQC foundation re-level  morphed into a transformation that is of an exceptional standard with a pristine finish both inside and out.  By incredible project management through pandemic shortages, the team finished the month it was promised.

Premium also went above and beyond in accommodating additional non EQC improvements during the project.

We feel that Premium Homes are the builders benchmark for excellence and you can be proud of another success.  Thank you!!"

"When we saw the completed build for the first time it was with some well earned awe at the quality of build and craftsmanship, all the little details that couldn't be captured in photos were realised and we learned how lucky we were to have chosen Premium Homes"

"We adore our house Premium Homes built for us in Castle Hill Village. In our search for a building company that could build in a remote location at a high elevation and wind zone, Premium Homes caught our eye with their Healthy Homes building philosophy.

They exceed expectations creating a healthier, stronger and more energy efficient house. We were excited by the use of wool insulation and magnum board (in place of fiberglass and Gib) and it has proven its worth in reducing noise, keeping the air clean and feeling fresh and the house breathes not getting too hot nor too cold.

Premium Homes were able to effectively go through the build process whilst we were in Australia during COVID times and unable to visit site. No corners were cut and any issues and decision making requirements were communicated and dealt with effectively.

When we saw the completed build for the first time it was with some well earned awe at the quality of build and craftsmanship, all the little details that couldn't be captured in photos were realised and we learned how lucky we were to have chosen Premium Homes.

To us, the little extra cost in building a healthy home is well worth it. We are so proud of our house we would love to show it to anyone who is interested in building a healthy home. Who wants to build to the bare minimum requirements when going a little further to improve makes such a big difference? building healthy homes can only improve NZ living and we would now never build any other way. Our heartfelt thanks goes to all the team at Premium Homes for executing such a fantastic home for us."

Thank you, Georgie and Steve.

"I discovered Premium Homes and I am more than grateful that I did"

"Upon discovering that my original EQC repairs hadn't been completed properly, I was literally lost not knowing where to start. I discovered Premium Homes & am more than grateful that I did. The Premium Homes team could not have been more helpful at this stressful time, right from the first contact. Their knowledge & craftsmanship are of the highest standard & nothing was ever a problem.

Premium Homes went above & beyond to repair my 1960's home to a 'near new again' standard

Thank you so much Premium Homes for an incredible job, I highly recommend your team."

After a failed first earthquake repair on my sister’s lovely old home and many months of stress finally, the go-ahead was given from the insurance company proceed with an over- cap repair.

I decided to take the role as overseer of the project for my sister with the first task being to find a Building company who had a good track record of working on older homes. Premium Homes impressed me from the first day with their planning for the project beginning to end, an amazing support team who were so patient with us as they guided us through the repair process.

One of the strengths of Premium Homes is its ability to give clear and regular communications and to make an effort to establish a meaningful relationship with us. The workmanship was of a high standard with a focus on detail making sure that my sister's vision of the completed repair was achieved.

Thanks to Premium Homes my sister’s home is level, very warm with insulation installed and beautifully finished from end to end.

Gloria and I would recommend Premium Homes to anyone who is looking for a reliable high-quality building company to complete your new build or to restore your older classic home.

We planned to build a healthy home based on the ancient Indian science of home building (Vastu Sastra), with modern NZ specs, and of course within a budget! Premium Homes met all our requirements. During the very early stages when we lived out of town we were guided through the whole process, from planning to final hand-over.

Groundwork began two days ahead of our timeline and from there construction progressed quickly, with the team making sure all the Vastu aspects were carried out with utmost attention to detail. As with any construction process, we wanted to improvise a few things impromptu. Premium Homes provided insight and were flexible to accommodate these changes. It is also important to emphasise that Premium Homes have a very impressive line-up of sub-contractors, who were friendly and proficient.

Having moved in, the COVID-19 lockdown was a great opportunity to evaluate the performance of the house, and we came to appreciate the workmanship and the healthy aspects of the house.

Overall, when the builders treat your dream project as theirs, the end result is remarkable. The team at Premium Homes are a trustworthy lot.

A&P, Lincoln.

"Premium Homes managed the earthquake repairs to our 100-year-old house and did an excellent job. They got on with the work and kept us in the loop despite us being out of Christchurch for most of the build period.

Before the work began, they made an effort to build a relationship with us. This was invaluable later on when we had to rely on them from afar. The trust we had in them was well deserved, and a tribute to an organisation working in a community that has lost faith in many earthquake repairers.

As well as clear and regular communication, they understood our tight budget and stayed within it while still managing to indulge our special requests such as making rustic shelves out of the floorboards or building desks into cupboards. They even re-installed the fireplace facades so that they still look as if a fire might be lit in them.

They were patient with our decision-making about small details. And they gave us plenty of worthwhile advice, including replacing the old heat pump with a house-wide ducted system. They communicated when there were holdups with third parties and problems encountered, such as the leaking hot water cylinder.

The house is solid and level now and beautifully finished with a mix of remodelled and restored heritage features and lots of modern storage, and it will be warmer and healthy in winter.

"We thoroughly recommend the team at Premium Homes for price, advice and communication, excellent building quality and sympathetic treatment of an older home."

The team at Premium Homes has helped me with three projects, residential and commercial. Initially they worked with me to settle our insurance claims for our own home as well as our rental property. Premium Homes then carried out a re-level and repair for our home and they’ve repaired our rental property, tightly adhering to the budget they were given to work with.

The work to our commercial building involved a change of office layout as well as replacement of our shop frontage.

I recommend Premium Homes to anyone wanting to build or renovate because you can rely on them. You can trust that pricing is transparent and accurate, that work is done when they say they’ll do it and the quality of their work is always spot on. Their level of service and advice is impeccable from the ideas stage right through to help with plans, colour choices and the build itself”.

"Premium Homes is a great building company, and we are recommending you to our friends and colleagues, We have had lots of visitors sneaking in at the weekends and admiring your work. We always found you friendly, approachable and easy to communicate with. As our repair became an expanding project you were very generous with your time and ideas and we have enjoyed working with you all. For Richard, Becca and I, we will be reminded of you all every day. You have created our “Forever Home” and it’s a work of art."
