Daryl and Tara Hewitt have owned and operated D J Hewitt Builders in Christchurch for 20 years. The company builds architecturally-designed new homes and rebuilds particularly in the hill suburbs.
DJ Hewitt Builders Ltd is aligned with most leading insurance companies as re-build specialists. We have gained vast knowledge and have spent time getting systems in place.

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.

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 & Alfred Lyons
Thank you and all involved for their standard of workmanship, communication and attention to detail!! The house looks and feels amazing!
