Having spent time in the north island, learning his trade and gaining a passionate appreciation for the art of renovating, the Director of JMI Construction returned home to Canterbury determined to put his skills to practice on the character-filled villas and potential-packed homes of Christchurch city.
Renovating a home takes care and attention to detail, sympathy for the original design and an ability to blend contemporary conveniences with the timeless appeal of period architecture. Renovating is a broad field which encompasses everything from the addition of an extra room to the full restoration of character features, and requires an equally broad skillset.
Now more than ever before these skills are in demand, as Christchurch’s residents strive to retain the tradition and charm of the city whilst ensuring their homes are structurally sound and safe. We’ve expanded our capabilities to meet these ever-evolving needs, using all the tools and resources at our disposal to revive, rejuvenate and repair the homes of those affected by the earthquakes.
This article from Stuff is about one of our clients in Christchurch whose new house we are now fixing after their previous builder ran into some trouble and left them with only half a house. The article highlights the issue of houses being built in NZ by companies with little or no control over the standard of workmanship. Have a read and if you would like to discuss your house and the level of workmanship please feel free to contact us.
This particular house is not the worst house we have re-repaired and gives a shocking insight into the future of buildings and the question about how many other houses out there have not been checked.
We believe that it is always easier to control workmanship when the builders are employed directly by the company. All builders that work with JMI fully understand the level of workmanship expected of them. Not only that, they are completely invested in working with JMI to produce the best outcome for our clients.
