Here’s how we make good on that promise.

In our business we spend a lot of time with our clients to see their vison for their home. To make sure we do the job right every time, we work with the best subcontractors, as well as trade-qualified carpenters and painters.

And to do our bit towards providing training and jobs for future of our industry , we’re also hiring carefully selected apprentices. Making them part of our team means they can benefit from continuous supervision by our more senior staff – which guarantees you’ll always get top-notch work.


Using our own staff also means we know exactly who we’re sending into your home, whether it’s for repairs, renovations or alterations. We know it can be uncomfortable having strangers in your house, especially if it’s a trail of different people from one day to the next.

You’ll get to know our team, and we’ll always treat you with respect. We’ll also take extra care in looking after your house and possessions. Previous clients have told us we’re ‘good to have in the house’. We think you’ll agree.


Having had EQC repairs and house painting recently done, I wanted to say a big thank you. JD Building Solutions doing my repairs, and the team of painters with Jonathon Exton as the paint team supervisor, were so great. The house looks absolutely marvellous, the job very well done, efficiently and in good time. We lived in a caravan on site during their work, with the recent cold spell of weather, along with an unfortunate health issue. The guys were so good, even going over and above in getting us back in the house ASAP. Jonathon and his team uploaded the container of our furniture so as not to delay our return. Great job guys – thank you so much.

We would like to register our utmost thanks and appreciation for a superb job completed by Jason Donaldson and his team from JD Building Solutions Limited.

The team of tradesmen that came and went from our property did so in a manner of professionalism. Their integrity in completing the job to a high standard was excellent. We were very nervous of the whole procedure, having lost our original family home to the earthquake, but our fears were quickly removed. The team were friendly and obliging and we would like to register and ask EQC to record our thanks of a job well done.
