Hear from our happy homeowners on their Thistle Building experience.

“What I liked best about Thistle was the guys, the workmanship they put in, and just great people to deal with.”

Chris Davidson

“My wife and I would like to personally recommend Thistle Building Company Ltd to any prospective customers.

From our first meeting with Thistle it was apparent that they were professional, enthusiastic, willing to listen, make suggestions, and most importantly were trustworthy, and genuinely good people. Without exception the Thistle team and sub-contractors were excellent to deal with, were friendly, accommodating and respectful.

The standard of work was first class and the build process was very smooth from start to finish. We were kept well informed at every stage of the build so that there were no unpleasant surprises and the Builders trend program ensured that we could keep track of any variations.

We thoroughly recommend Thistle”.

Russell and Gillian Hedley, Architectural New Home, Greytown

“I was new to the area and I asked some people who had been here for a long time who they would recommend to use as a building company, and the first name they came up with was Thistle.”

Nick Theobald

“You build your dream home only once in a lifetime. With utmost professionalism and minimal stress, the team from Thistle managed to translate our dream into a beautiful reality. We love it!”

Jimmy Field

“There was plenty of open communication with what sort of design we want and we managed to come up with something that fitted our budget, something that we really liked, and quite importantly something that fitted the site.”

Steve Carlin

“We are happy with the quality of all the work in our new Thistle Home, and this is due to the workmanship of the Thistle team.

As we had no experience with the building process we had a lot of questions at the start and now we know that most of our questions are just part of the process and will be looked after.

We are not sure if we will use Thistle Building Company again… as we don’t want to leave our dream Thistle home!”

Marco and Clare Van Hofwegen, Thistle Clyde Home

“Tweed has clean stylish lines that I really love, and it goes with so many different interior designs.”

Jennifer Gayfer

“We couldn’t be more delighted with the end result. Simon and his workforce have made the building process a pleasure. They are highly skilled, easy to communicate with, have good ideas and above all are very efficient and hardworking. We would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Alasdair and Sarah Gibb

“The quality was really exceptional. We’ve been very very happy with everything that was done.”

Jim and Leslie Simmons

“The other benefit of using Thistle Builders was the software app they have, which allowed me to monitor the building of the house from my home up in Waiheke Island.”

Emma Clark

“Our building experience was very positive, enjoyable and stress-free. Thistle were approachable, helpful and professional. The quality of work was outstanding with impressive attention to detail. We were more than satisfied with the outcome of our house and would recommend Thistle to everyone considering building.

We look forward to working with Simon and his team in the future.”

Hamish Wylie

“Right from the word go – great communication.”

Pam Wickstead

“Thistles communication was great, they were always on time and made good recommendations for local trades people from plumbers to electricians. Their attention to detail was also noted and they would come up with practical suggestions to ensure that we had a seamless flow from the original part of the house to the renovated areas. Their professionalism was most welcome, they left the house clean and were conscious about us trying to live in the house at the same time they were renovating it.

We have no hesitation in recommending Thistle Builders for future work.”

Guy Farman

“The communication was really good while we were building. It was really easy to get hold of Thistle, which is good when you’re juggling working and children.”

Ben and Holly Winder

“We’d engaged an architect, and we wanted a building company that was going to do justice to the design plans.”

Doug Carter

“Thistle were great communicators and guided us through all aspects – from paperwork to completion. All the builders were tidy around the site and were always polite and friendly. All their planning and hard work left us with a home we feel really comfortable in.”

Russ and Kate Smith

“From the start they actually turned up on time and were really reliable.”
