Comment: Jason responded to the job quickly, gave an honest appraisal and likely cost. When the work turned out to be more than initially anticipated there was no problem with delays and we were kept informed of costs throughout. Communication was excellent. Kit was great to work with and made an extra effort to make the repair in keeping with the style of the house. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys. 🙂

Dear Jason Harvey,

During July-August your company completed repairs to my home, (at) Hammersley Avenue, Shirley Christchurch.

I have written to ‘Housing New Zealand Corporation’ advising how pleased I was with the work carried out. But wanted to write to you personally, to tell you Karen, Hayley and all the contractors were excellent. The work was done with consideration, thank you.

My sincere thanks, Patricia Hall October 6. 2015

New Church Building – 9-11 Burwood Road, Burwood

After the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake hit, Pastor Ron Boersma and his wife Jan knew that their building was in trouble.
Ron and Jan

Having just purchased their first building less than a year before, the congregation was just starting to get used to having their own chapel to meet, hold services, and use as a base for various community outreaches when the quake struck.

“We were thankful that no one in our church family was hurt” says Senior Pastor Ron Boersma. “But the building itself was a total write-off with a structural engineer marking it with a red zone warning sticker.”

 “However, Cornerstone Building Ltd was a tremendous help to us and very understanding of our goals and mission statements as a church. Jason and his team really pulled together and we are eagerly awaiting our first service in the new building. I can’t recommend them enough to any fellow Pastor or Community Organiser out there! – give them a call and see what they can do to help you like they helped us!”

James and Teresa have used Cornerstone a number of times over the past few years. Originally, they selected Cornerstone Building James & Theresa

as their main contractor to repair the earthquake damage to their home. They were so impressed with the workmanship, professionalism, and knowledge of the team that Cornerstone was their first choice when it came time to renovate the laundry.

 James says “We were very impressed with Jason’s knowledge about the job and how he encouraged the painters (in particular) to take the extra prep time to ensure a quality finish” In a world where everything is rushed, it is rare to find a company that pushes for that extra quality instead of speed.

 “The workmen were polite and approachable, and we got the impression that they all knew what they were doing. They took good care of our home and ensured that everything was taken care off.

 “I would have no hesitation recommending Cornerstone Building to anyone.”
