What people are saying.
We enjoy working with our clients as much as they enjoy working with us and it’s great to get positive feedback. Both sub-trades and builders have often become friends with clients – even after the house is finished.
Here’s what some of our clients had to say about us:
A big thanks to everyone at DJ Hewitt for building our family an amazing home to last us for a life time.
We have found the entire team, from the people in the office to the people on site, to be very professional and helpful at every turn. Nothing was ever too much to ask and any problems that arose were almost fixed before we even knew there was one.
One of the biggest stand-outs has been how we have continued to be supported after moving in – any difficulties that have arisen have been dealt with very promptly.
We would highly recommend DJ Hewitt to anyone considering building in Christchurch.

Such great photos, thanks very much Daryl.
We love living here and will always be grateful for you enabling its creation for us.
Fiona & Jonny
We are currently building our new home with DJ Hewitt and chose DJ Hewitt on reputation alone. We bought an existing home built by DJ Hewitt and lived there during all of the major earthquakes – our damage was minimal and cosmetic – nothing structural whatsoever.
We have found the building process a real pleasure and always feel confident that the team at DJ Hewitt’s are looking out for our best interests in every decision we make. The builders have been exceptional to work with, the project management team “just make things happen” and the interior design service offered by Tara Hewitt has been one of the highlights – Tara is really talented and this is just another service offered in the build price.
Navigating a new build can be overwhelming – the endless decisions that need to be made can be daunting however the whole team at DJ Hewitt’s have ensured that we enjoy each decision, are involved in every aspect of the build and are fully informed at every stage of the project.
We highly recommend DJ Hewitt and the team.
Kelly & John Nicholls
I am terribly fussy and am something of a perfectionist and I was impressed with the standard of workmanship.
For a complicated build, it went very smoothly and any queries I had were dealt with promptly and efficiently by the building team.
We were impressed with how organised DJ Hewitt Builders was, right from the outset. During the building process we received regular weekly updates and every last detail was organised ahead of time, so there were never any last minute decisions to make.
We liked Daryl as a person and liked the way he handled his business. It wasn’t just price, it was the fact that Daryl could take control. As people who own a seven-day-a-week business, this was important. We were first-time home builders, and it was a huge advantage having Daryl as our builder – we felt like we were being guided properly.
Eliza Rattray and Alfred Lyons
I can only describe the building process with the D.J. Hewitt Team of contractors as simply fantastic.
The D.J. Hewitt Team were great. They kept us well informed with everything that was going on, they were professional, timely, very particular and took a lot of pride in their work.
Great build, with very few problems. Rob and Aaron were great! All the sub contractors were very professional, thanks.
From start to finish we found it to be a stress free and enjoyable experience working with Daryl and his Team.
Graeme & Jan Ashby
We were impressed with the amazing quality and innovation in the houses Daryl and his team build. Daryl seems to have extremely high standards like me, nothing was ever a problem for him and his team.
I have been very happy with the D.J. Hewitt Team. The house has been finished to a very high standard and the whole building process went smoothly.
The Building process was an absolute breeze.
The whole process was great. I found myself wanting to go to site every day & the team welcomed my input.
With Daryl its all about the client, without exception he makes sure the client leaves happy.

We chose D.J. Hewitt Builders based on Daryl Hewitts reputation as a quality builder with very strict controls over staff, contractors and subcontractors, therefore maintaining his good name he has established in the industry.
Paul & Nicky Garven
Many thanks for making our building experience a positive one. We thoroughly enjoyed the process and would recommend it to anyone.
D.J. Hewitt’s personal and genuine interest in the house was obvious. This was followed up with him taking a progression of photographs from the beginning through to the end and presenting us with a pictorial album once we had moved in.
Gavin & Marie Cook
Thank you Daryl, we are thrilled with our new home. It is perfect! Thanks once again.
Tina and Les Van Der Geest
Christine and I on a personal level would like to express our sincere thanks to you & your team for the high level of professionalism and expertise involved in helping us negotiate a suitable financial settlement with our insurance company for our property following the devastating earthquake and aftershocks, experienced in 2010/11.
Our property was extensively damaged and after lengthy protracted meetings with the insurance company with little or no progress, the difference came with the help and involvement of you and your company DJ Hewitt. The detailed professional repair strategy and cost analysis left little to be challenged by the insurance company who in all respects appeared to hold your company in very high regard.
We cannot say thank you enough to DJ Hewitt without whose help we would have been left us in a very difficult position still trying to settle with our insurance company. Once again many thanks Daryl!!!
John and Christine Clarke
Thank you and all involved for their standard of workmanship, communication and attention to detail!! The house looks and feels amazing!
Boyd Chamberlain, Boyd Chamberlain Architecture Ltd.
Daryl just stood out. He asked questions, he got to know us. It was important to him to understand what we wanted to achieve. He was warm and struck me as professional. He’s a builder with a good business head and marketing skills and he focuses on the core of his business – building.
Daryl is forthcoming with ideas and suggestions and his vast experience helps you make informed decisions. (This was the second home built for the Stewarts by D.J. Hewitt Builders Ltd)
Malcolm & Lynn Stewart
Honesty and integrity are vital to long term success and Daryl mixes in his other ethics of plain hard work and accountability.
