Testimonials

"We have had the pleasure of working with Dean and his team over 3 pretty major renovations to our house over the last 20 years.  Dean is a great communicator and has very high standards in terms of workmanship and quality, attributes that were absolutely essential to us.  Acting between the architect and the client can be tricky at times but Dean was able to navigate that dynamic extremely well and was always proactive in identifying pragmatic and workable solutions when theoretical design concepts were at times impractical to play out in practice.

We without hesitation would use him again and we highly recommend prospective clients to use Dean and his team.  You will not be disappointed."

"It is our pleasure to recommend the services of Dean Wareing Builders (DWB) Nelson Ltd.
We have had the pleasure of enjoying a long standing working and personal relationship with DWB spanning 6-7 years.  From substantial refurbishments at both our residences in Golden Bay and Nelson, and a full rebuild on our commercial property in Nelson city, DWB handled all these with a high level of care, consideration and attention to detail.
DWB's proactive willingness to engage in discussion as to how to deliver our expectations was to be admired, and was highly appreciated as this often resulted in cost effective and creative problem solving.
Their onsite project management was always professional, and their entire team engaged well with not only ourselves, but directly with our clients, neighbours and various third parties.  On all projects the work sites have been tidy, well managed, without accidents and we had no reports of disturbance from neighbouring properties.
From our experience, we would have no hesitation in recommending Dean Wareing Builders (DWB) Nelson Ltd for your next project."

"I have known Dean for about 20 years. He was an apprentice when he worked on alterations and additions to our own house. He was then the foremen on the Eichbaum house. This was a major alteration and addition project to an old house in Nelson which was designed by Arthouse. We have found Dean to be conscientious and thorough. His work is always to a very high standard. He thinks ahead and deals with all the sub contractors well. The project we were involved in have run very smoothly. I am very happy to be contacted."

"Our family home was built by Dean and a young apprentice prior to Dean starting his own building company. The floor plan is challenging and the roof structure multi curved and complex, three different ceiling heights exist in the design together with nearly 40 separate window and door frames and internal curved walls. All of the wall frames were hand made on site by Dean. The final results are excellent, it is a wonderful home with heaps of character and style. Dean’s enthusiasm and determination to produce a first class job has resulted in no maintenance costs for several years. One day when we move on from the large section that surrounds this home we will gladly engage Dean with his honesty and skill to assist with new developments."
