Repairing the Repairs: WD Build + Hardy Projects

The EQC $300m policy for homeowners of over-cap on-sold properties in Canterbury enabled affected homeowners to apply for an ex gratia Government payment to have their homes repaired.


The payment was also available if the same owners had the home, but believed the repairs done post-earthquakes were not satisfactory, or overlooked levelling.

WD Build and Hardy Projects have been at the forefront of this process, helping homeowners get the correct repairs.

Recent client Ben McLean is delighted with the result he has received, “working with company owners Mitchell James and Paul Hardy was so easy – they made the process really straightforward when we didn’t have a clue about what was required.”

The house required foundation repair, partial relevel, new flooring, tiling in the bathroom, internal painting, electrics brought to code, and the underfloor insulation which had been noncompliant all replaced. he garage had its foundations dug out and replaced as well as blockwork repaired.

“The house now looks amazing,” says Ben “and the estimate of four to six months work was actually completed in 12 weeks!”

He says with Mitchell and Paul on the job the work was very well planned, started quickly, ran smoothly and was completed to a very high standard.

“I’d recommend W D Build and Hardy Projects to anyone in a heartbeat,” says Ben.

So If you need repairs undertaken or advice on where to start, call WD Build or Hardy Projects to book your free, no obligation, meeting and take the first step to getting your home repaired properly.
