In 2016 we extended our Grade 2 Heritage property with a kitchen and bathroom extension.

This was a great success. Blair was not only a talented tradesman but also a great communicator. He also did a great  job of managing all the other trades to make it a totally stress-free and enjoyable experience. He went the extra mile and I would certainly go out of my way to use his excellent services again. In fact I have in a subsequent renovation.

Renovation & landscaping

Khandallah, Wellington

In 2014 we employed Blair Helbron of Blair Helbron Building Ltd to undertake significant internal renovation and landscaping work at our residential property in Khandallah, Wellington. Blair is a highly competent tradesman and great to deal with. He is proactive and maintains excellent communication. He is very proud of his work and will always go that extra mile to find a solution and make sure the job is done well. We would not have any hesitation in recommending Blair and he would be our first choice for our next project.

Piling and deck

Lake Ferry, Wairarapa

I have recently built a new home in Lake Ferry, South Wairarapa. Due to some time pressures, I needed to employ a builder to undertake two key tasks, these being the foundation s (timber pile) and also the installation of a large timber deck towards the end of the project. I had Blair undertake this work for me and was very impressed with the results. His workmanship, professionalism and timely response was exceptional. He is very easy to deal with and a highly skilled tradesman. I would have no hesitation whatsoever, in recommending Blair to anyone for their building projects.

Custom Cedar Pergola

Karori, Wellington

Blair really is a craftsman! Our pergola project needed a lot of detailed work on large pieces of cedar (it's no ordinary pergola!), which BHB took a great deal of care and pride in doing. Blair is a perfectionist in his work and is mindful of keeping his client fully informed. We also appreciated his management of suppliers, respect for our property and affection for our dog :). Highly recommended.

Bathroom renovation

Stokes Valley

Blair and his team rebuilt our bathroom and replaced the rotting window with aluminium double glazing. Blair's attention to detail and quality of his work is second to none. The results of the work have been outstanding. The bathroom is now the best room in the house! Blair's communication is excellent and he always arrived when he said he would. I never had an worries using his services and I would not hesitate to use him again. Thank you Blair!

Bathroom renovation

Newtown, Wellington

Having used Blair for a number of different sized jobs, I've been consistently impressed with his approach - always thorough, always has the right gear and all with a genial no-nonsense personality. He reliably gives us great advice, is always upfront about the costs for each job before he gets underway and keeps us informed as he progresses; making sure we get the result we want and that getting the bill is never a bad surprise.

Blair has performed repairs and maintenance jobs for us at our home in Roseneath as well as building extensive decking on a sloping section. His work is of a very high standard.

Large deck, fence & gate

Upper Hutt

We have used BHB twice now. Both were big projects. These were a very detailed automated gate system and our 100 square meter deck. Blair has amazing attention to detail, every thing we wanted was achieved and more. Our friends are asking us, who is your builder? We would recommend BHB to anyone looking for not just a builder but a perfectionist. See you next project BHB.
