Testimonials

We can give you lots of reasons why you should choose Urban Homes as your builders – but how about hearing what our customers have to say? We understand that a personal recommendation is really important when choosing a builder so we have collected a few comments from some of the people we have worked for to help you make that choice.

Along with a constant flow of satisfied customers, our consistent high quality workmanship has also won us numerous Registered Master Builder Awards in almost every category from renovations and family homes to extravagant executive designer homes.

We chose Urban because of their exceptional quality.  And we knew we were going to get a fixed price contract.

Urban understand quality.  Any question we threw at them around design or style, we could really trust their judgement.

We had regular site meetings and emails.  No question was too hard. The open and consistent communication meant that we felt really informed and there we no surprises.

The Urban team were absolutely fantastic to work with and we would definitely build with them again.  We recommend them to anyone else who is looking to build.

When a family is seeking the services of a builder to construct the home they wish to reside in for many years, it is vital to choose the right building company. It all comes down to the leader and their team. We were fortunate enough to have had Urban work for us in 2004 when building our last home, so when attempting to decide who would build this home, it was easy. Their calm yet professional manner put us at ease right away. Daniel is a perfectionist who works hard to make your home the way he would like it to look for himself. His team is reliable, honest and friendly. The home we have built is not conventional style for New Zealand, yet Urban and their team understood what we were trying to achieve and the result is stunning! We have enjoyed every moment of the three months we have been in our home and feel fortunate to have had a builder with an ability to help our dreams come to fruition.

Our project was carried out in a very short timeframe as we had already received bookings for the pavilion so it needed to be completed on time. The finished product has turned out very well and Zealong continue to receive great feedback and as for serving its purpose it is becoming a very popular venue for functions of all types.

When asked – Why you chose Urban?  Gigi Crawford (General Manager Zealong) replied “they came highly recommended by our architects and they are an award winning company. We would definitely recommend Urban and their excellent team, they are efficient, friendly and their site manager is excellent”

From our first meeting to the day when Urban handed us the keys to our perfectly finished home, they never ceased to amaze us. Their professionalism and positive attitude made our build process stress free and enjoyable. As with any renovation/build there are decisions to make that can be unexpected, costly or stressful. Urban always handled our project in a calm and informed manner giving us the information we needed to make a decision with ease. We have no hesitation in recommending Urban Homes to anyone looking for the highest levels in craftsmanship.

We moved away from a previous building company because our trust was dented. This was the most important attribute we were looking for in a building company. We’re glad to say we found it in Urban. We could trust Urban to be fair, truthful and with quality delivery on time! The rest flowed from this. Urban has an excellent system of recording and following up queries and questions. Their attention to detail, non-compromising attitude towards quality and excellent `feel’ for design all contributed to a house that exceeds our expectations. Their excellent team made it an enjoyable and fun journey! We have no hesitation in recommending Urban Homes to other people.

Our two-level French provincial style house was built by Urban Homes. We found Daniel Klinkenberg, the director of the company to be a pleasure to work with and nothing was too much trouble in his effort to build our home, to both the designer’s and our specifications. Urban’s sub-contractors were all of the same high standard and everything ran like clockwork, thanks to the overall direction and leadership of their project manager. Urban’s team was punctual at all times, arriving on site early and working hard all day, including leaving the site tidy at the end of each day in readiness for a new start. Their workmanship was without fault and we would not hesitate to recommend Urban Homes to anyone who is building or renovating a home of quality. Our home stands at 10 Tamihana Avenue, Hamilton, and anyone with a view to building using Urban would be welcome to visit and appraise their workmanship.

I was pleased with the quality of Urban’s work and their attention to detail in the recent renovations at my home. Through the whole exercise we were impressed with their approach, integrity, willingness (when changes were necessary), paper work, care, attention to detail and – most importantly – result. Urban did an outstanding job and, I hasten to add, beat the pants off the last guy we used.

About one year ago our family decided to build an ancillary dwelling on our lifestyle block at Tamahere, near Hamilton.  After considerable research, we selected Urban Homes as our builder.  Our enquiries indicated nothing but praise for Urban’s previous achievements.

From the outset, Urban’s team proved to be very capable, efficient and totally reliable.  They assisted us with great care and consideration at every stage of the development, from draughting the plans right through to completion of the finished home.

Their project manager has an uncompromising commitment to excellence.  This became more and more obvious as work proceeded on our project.

As usual with most building developments, we decided on a number of unforseen amendments during construction.  These were all handled in a courteous and professional manner, calmly and with good humour.

The house was completed exactly on target and is precisely what we planned.  We would definitely  recommend Urban Homes if you are wanting a home built exceptionally well.

When building our home we knew we wanted a builder who was willing to listen to our ideas and wishes, with a team producing a high quality finish. We are happy to say that with Urban and their team we got both. They took the stress out of the whole building process and we would be more than happy to go back to Urban Homes for any future projects.

Professional, helpful and friendly.  Nothing was a problem for the team from Urban Homes.  They all helped make the process of building a house as hassle free as they could.  From the initial plans through to handover, Urban’s team were always on hand to give advice and help.  The end result is a great family home.  The finish on everything from the painting to the concrete on the driveway was as if they were doing it for themselves.  We would have no hesitation on using Urban for any future projects that we will embark on.
