What Our Clients Say

We have used Graham for several jobs; some minor repairs and maintenance and a major kitchen alteration. We cannot praise Graham and his team enough. He is thoughtful with ideas and considerate in his approach. He has been responsive to our building needs, including demands at short notice. Graham is also reasonably priced. – David Voss


The friendly, professional workers at Graham Ross Builders take pride in their work and it shows with the excellent finishes. There was great communication throughout the process to ensure everything was done in a timely and efficient manner and to a high standard. It was a smooth process from beginning to end. – Rachel Voss


Graham was a pleasure to work with from planning to completion of our window replacement and entry-way renovation. He was patient and helpful as we chose the scope of the project to match our budget. His choice of products, joiner and glazier were first class. He and his crew were very professional with attention to quality and detail. The final cost was more than fair given the nature of the project and modifications that we made along the way. We highly recommend him! – Dr J. Michael Palin, Department of Geology, University of Otago


We had weather tightness issues with our 28 double-glazed windows and needed them to be re-fitted to a high standard and in accordance with the NZ building code.

Graham undertook a site visit and made a thorough inspection of the state of window fitting, framing and surrounding structure of the house. Within a few days he had worked out an in-depth action plan and also provided a detailed quotation and schedule.

Graham and his team started the job on schedule. The work was performed in a professional way, carefully following the action plan and taking safety into consideration. The latter is of particular importance where family life with young children has to continue for the period of construction work. Additional issues that arose during the procedure such as rotten timber hidden beneath the structure were carefully inspected, discussed with us and then handled as required.

As a result all 25 windows, 2 sliding doors and one front door were installed, meeting the most current NZ building code for new buildings. Graham and his team provided superior quality work within the estimated time frame. The communication was excellent; Graham was available at all times throughout the whole process. As an end result we have a weather-tight home with windows that blend well into the existing structure of the house.

We are very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Graham Ross Builders. – Dr Torsten Kleffmann, Dr Anne von Zychlinski-Kleffmann, Dunedin


I have been fortunate to have Graham Ross Builders renovate the iconic “The Hydro” at St Clair Beach, Dunedin. The level of workmanship has been outstanding and Graham and his professional team have been a pleasure to work with. The Hydro renovation included earthquake strengthening, the transformation of three rundown flats into five-star apartments, extensive rooftop decking, and the rebuild of the Hydro Surf Shop retail space. Graham and team listened to our wishes, offered creative solutions and worked well within time frames and budgets. You can see the results at the Hydro Surf Shop, 250 Forbury Rd. I highly recommend Graham Ross Builders for both new builds and renovations. – Katherine Greer


I strongly recommend Graham Ross Builders, who did up our kitchen. They were very responsible and highly efficient, keeping the place tidy and neat throughout the renovation. The job was completed with precision and care. – Joel Lim
