This unique house built by Scott Findlay is an outstanding example of his superb building capabilities. Created from a plan of the traditional French villa the single storey home has been made from the highest quality materials obviously evident both inside and out. The number of compliments that have been expressed to me as people watched it being built have been countless - I know it captivated the interest and admiration of the locals. Scott's attention to detail and design is phenomenal, he is a perfectionist and really cares about what he builds and is always available to help with any queries. He and his co-workers must be congratulated.

Yvonne and Ron's Testimonial
From our first point of contact they were easy to relate to and provided us with a timeline of the proposed repair. They started on time and had the repair done ahead of schedule, quality was excellent. These people are now my preferred builders..


Craig's Testimonial
A very skilled team and during the time when they were laying bricks they had no hesitation in explaining to us the reasons for doing little improvements or alterations to the work in progress...

Thank you for the excellent work you have done repairing my house. Gaynor was extremely helpful in the run up to the repair and as a result I felt very confident about a good outcome. The entire work team seemed enormously proficient and very friendly and cooperative. These days one hears some negative sounding reports and so I feel I want to very firmly express an absolutely positive opinion about the perfect result achieved here.


I can’t tell you enough how grateful we are that you managed to get our house all finished yesterday. It was an outstanding effort – especially given the difficulties you faced (taking over someone else’s work, and short notice to complete the extra 2 rooms). We’re just thrilled. Other people had let us down, but your team didn’t. Thank you, and your team, for delivering on what you said you would.
We are delighted with the workmanship and professionalism shown by all those who worked on the property and we would not hesitate in having SFB doing further building work for us if we ever need it...

Thanks for your recent efforts, and your crew on my house repairs at Avonhead Road. Sorry for occasionally stuffing up your family meal times when you kindly agreed to evening meetings to suit my busy work schedule...


Heather's Testimonial


This is my testimonial on work completed at my home, in March 2018. I must admit at first I had my reservations at my house repairs as this would have been the second time that my house had to be re done. The company and all their tradesmen were excellent and when I went there which was very seldom, I was greeted with the utmost respect and was taken around and shown what they were actually doing and had already done. The place looks amazing and I now have no leaks, which is a huge bonus now that winter is upon us.  Thank you so much for taking the time to take care of my house and fix it up so it looks like new again, as the team had to re plaster the whole outside of the house and put up new flashings around it which was previously not even thought of to be done, it was repainted.  The team went over and above to ensure all was completed to perfection and my place was certainly left in an immaculate condition when they had finished it all. A huge thank you to all concerned with the repairs to my place and also finishing the work 2 weeks ahead of schedule. I would certainly recommend your company/companies to anybody who is or will be in the process of doing EQC repairs.

Thank you and your staff for the standard of repairs carried out at my house. Special thanks to: Gaynor and Paul, to plasterers Nick and Brendan, painter Amanda, and Lynda for her paperhanging. Everyone showed high skill levels including yourself! The electrician was first class too. So Thanks again, I am very happy...


John's Testimonial
Please have it put on file that Scott Finlay and his staff are people I would have work on my home again. They are polite, punctual, tidy, and carry out a good standard of work. If I ever had a question or issue they would reply or rectify it in a short time frame. Over all I am happy with the work carried out on my home and would recommend this contractor...


Jay's Testimonial
We have found Scott Findlay Builders to be wonderful to work with... Very reliable, jobs totally completed and if we needed to have any of the tradesmen back, there was no problem at all. We are very satisfied with the work completed and would certainly choose Scott and his company for anything in the future...

Colin and Sue's Testimonial
I found Bruce from Scott Findlay Builders to be a very nice & easy person to deal with, was always amazed at our tidy he was with his work.  I was concerned about my garden being damaged but when I explained to Bruce about one special area of concern he built a platform around the plants so they could be protected from the workman & scaffold...


Joe's Testimonial


I have much pleasure in being given the opportunity to express my gratitude and heart felt thanks to the team at Scott Findlay Builders. My home in Fendalton, Christchurch was damaged in the earthquakes and came under the EQC management for repairs. Personally, I was stretched to the limit with business and general stress about the situation. Gaynor was very supportive of me and patient with my many emails and calls. The SFB team communicated well and were cooperative when it came to attending to details as they became apparent with the progress of the job. I have no hesitation in recommending SFB as a reputable organisation that provides excellent service and professional skills.
