Builders Christchurch, Paul McStay - Services

By: Paul Mcstay Builders  06-Dec-2011

Building a new home is a very important moment in your life. Whether you are building a home for investment or wanting to build your "Dream". It needs to be an enjoyable and stress free experience. Here is a list of some of the services we provide to help you achieve your goal of a Great new home.


We can assist you with building up a budget for your project. We will make you aware of all those extra's that are often left out of house quotations and items that may only be partially quoted for. This will help provide a true understanding of your project cost.

Section Selection

Where is land available? What are the restrictions and/or opportunities of certain sections for particular home designs? We can help you through this.

Concept Design

We have our own in-house design service and from here we are able to start turning your ideas into reality.  A free concept design is available to all clients.

Materials Choice

The appropriate choice of materials is very important. We can help you on the consideration to balance quality with cost.

Fixed Price Quotation

We provide a fixed price quotation. You should demand nothing less.

Council Approval

We understand local requirements and guidelines and from concept drawings we are able to produce full council ready consent drawings. We will then submit to council for approval.

Interior, Exterior Design & Colour Selection

Experienced in both exterior & interior design our designer will work with you to personalise your environment with colour. Our designer will also produce a colour board with your final colour choices pasted onto an art board and supply hand held colour swatches for use when selecting your furnishings.

Full Project Management

We completely manage the project from start to finish and keep in regular contact with you regarding progress. All of us here at Paul McStay Builders believe: "Meticulous planning and highest level of communication throughout all levels of the project result in a customer whose expectations are not only met but exceeded by the standard of the finished product"

Landscape design & construction

We can help with the landscape design to ensure you get the best out of your site for outdoor living. Often clients prefer to carry out the construction themselves however if you wish we are able to recommend professional landscapers and show you examples of their work. We are able to work in with and programme/organise the landscapers so landscape construction will be completed before you to move into your new home.

Quality Control

We engage the services of an independent assessor to write a report on the finish etc
of the property upon initial completion of your home. We allow a couple of days
to perform any touch-up work before we hand over to you. The house is handed over to you
in perfect condition. Quality checks are also performed through earlier stages of the
building phase.

Drive Ways, Concrete Patios, Paths, Clothesline, Letterbox

All of these items are standard with a Paul McStay Home. They are completed during the construction period. So will be ready before you are ready to move in.

Boundary Fencing, Internal Fencing, Drapes & Blinds

All of the above items can if you wish be included in your package and be completed during the construction period. Many building companies will often leave these items up to you to sort out. However we consider this to be lazy on their part whereas we are more than happy to provide the service.
