Join the many Nelson homeowners who have had a full kitchen makeover done by us. The kitchen is often the hub of the home, especially if it’s open plan, so it makes sense to get the job done right and have your kitchen looking terrific.
When parts of your house exterior is past it’s best, and a few weatherboards are rotting, creating a risk of a leaky home, we will ensure your home is sound, watertight, and safe. We have Licensed builders on the team who are qualified for this type of work.
Leaking Roof Repair
If a leak is left long enough there’s the risk of further damage to your ceilings, internal walls, and framing. The sooner we get onto it and remediate the damage the less it’s going to cost you in the long run.
Older houses have a lot of charm, but don’t always have a roof that lasts forever. If your own roof has seen better days, maybe replacement would be a safer option than a repair and repaint.
Re-Gibbing House Interiors
If your external walls never had insulation installed when the house was built, one of the ways we can install insulation for a warm cosy house every winter, is to take the plasterboard off inside, install the insulation, and fix new Gib sheets. Our team can also look after the plastering and painting if you wish.
Interior Home Alterations
Insulating Floor, Walls and Ceilings
These days there are a good choice of insulation products with a range of insulation ratings to achieve the desired result. the bottom line is that a well insulated home keeps the occupants healthier and your heating bills lower.

What a great team! Having a project manager, Gary, took all the stress away. He did a wonderful job coordinating everyone and the job was completed ahead of schedule. I now have a totally revamped bathroom and all in 2 weeks. The tradesmen were all friendly, helpful and very efficient. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone who needs work done however big or small.

Nelson & Tasman builders FAQs
A Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) is legally required where the work being done requires a Building Permit to do the work, and a Code Compliance Certificate (CCC) once it’s completed. All other carpentry and building work does not require an LBP.
We have LBP builders on the staff, but not all are LBPs as that’s not required, but all are qualified and experienced.
For specific examples, enquire with us and we will have one of our project managers get in touch with you regarding your own set of circumstances.
In general terms, new house building, extensions to the footprint of a house and new plumbing work, creating a wet area for a shower and installing windows or doors to an external wall requires a building permit.
We have a building designer on the team who can draw plans for you, submit them to the council, and nurse the application through the bureaucratic process on your behalf.
We don’t employ apprentices or unqualified staff. Any of the staff we send you is both qualified and experienced in their role.
Not it isn’t, however you need to be comfortable with the fact that if a particular item you have bought fails within the warranty period, the complete responsibility for its replacement falls on you if you’ve made the purchase.
If we buy the materials, then the responsibility falls on us and we’re happy to make it right, whatever the item.
On rare occasions, clients will help with the removal of wall linings prior to our builders becoming involved.
We take no responsibility for your work, although our project manager will provide some guidance.
For health and safety reasons we prefer that our own staff take over beyond that point.
