Welcome to PR Builders
New homes and renovations in the Rodney and Kaipara areas
At PR Builders, we aim to build high quality homes, efficiently. We specialize in the construction of custom and architectural homes. Depending on the particular project we can either construct a home from the plans as supplied, or work with the individual client to design a home to suit their specific requirements.
Peter Richards, originally from Whangarei Heads, founded PR Builders in 2006. His aim was to maintain a very high standard of workmanship, with an emphasis on integrity and results. These core values influence the PR Builders team.
Peter is a member of Certified Builders New Zealand and a Carpentry and Site One Licensed Building Practitioner. He has completed many successful projects, including, recently, a home designed by architect Peggy Deamer.
"As a company, we enjoy completing challenging projects that exceed client expectations and we would relish the opportunity to build your dream home!"
PR Builders NZ Ltd is a member of Certified Builders New Zealand and will provide a 10 year Halo guarantee for your project, as well as provided up-to-date construction insurance and agreements contracts.
Pete can provide a quick budget estimate, comprehensive estimate or a fixed price quote.
Pete is also able to draw basic plans electronically. He is happy to work with you to capture your ideas before you contract a draftsman or architect.

New home build, Wharehine
Beautiful new house for recent arrivals from Wellington. The owners bought the beef farm with an existing house where their son and daughter-in-law live, and the children farm the property. The owners lived in a Total Span shed and caravan, right on site, so they developed a great client/builder relationship with Pete during this efficient 6-month build. With views across the Kaipara Harbour and all day sun, this house was an ideal candidate for solar panels.
What Clients Say
We had Pete Richards, Shane and Ben complete a major extension/alteration to our home in Mangawhai Heads. From the start date, Pete and his team worked and communicated tirelessly, in our best interests, building to an extremely high standard to complete our project in the time frame he indicated at the beginning. Throughout the build process, Pete managed and communicated very effectively, coordinating subcontractors and identifying any potential hiccups or issues before they became a problem. He was always proactive, approachable and responsive to our needs in finding solutions as necessary.
We would recommend his services without hesitation and would be happy to talk to any future clients who may require a reference.

New Custom Home
Peter Richards was employed as the main contractor to build our house in Warkworth by Lockwood Coast to Coast Builders.
Peter in all aspects of his work shows extremely high professionalism and gives his all. No detail was too small and he was very good at suggesting alternatives if we ran into a problem. He is a very hard worker and ran a very tight ship. Nothing was a hassle and he quite often went beyond what he was employed to do.
We have no hesitation in recommending Peter to anyone contemplating building a new home or doing alterations and would employ him again if we did another building project.

New Masonry Home
During 2006 Peter Richards played an integral role in the construction of a new 900 sq metre masonry home for my wife and I, situated on our ten acre property in Karaka, South Auckland.
At that time Peter was employed by Jaros Construction. Our principal contact was with John Moros, the owner of Jaros Construction. During the construction period we gained much respect for not only John Moros, but for Peter Richards also.
Peter's role was our Head Builder and Site Manager. At most times Peter was responsible for managing a team of three full time builders, to coordinate and manage all subcontractors and the supply of materials.
Peter was always thoroughly professional and efficient in all areas of operation. Peter always adopted a positive attitude towards any "issues" and generally helped to make what can be "a stressful process" a much easier and enjoyable experience.
Our home is valued in the "several million dollar category" and as such the building skills and expertise required to implement a detailed and complicated architectural design, comprising high end internationally sourced products and materials was always going to be a challenge!
Peter certainly rose to the challenge and we are extremely pleased with not only the finished look and quality of our home, but also with the process and experience to achieve the finished product. Peter was an integral part of that journey.
In my mind it probably wouldn't matter what level of building project Peter is involved in, from alterations and additions to spec or architecturally designed homes of varying size and cost, the principles of professionalism, thoughtfulness and efficiency combined with exemplary workmanship as displayed during and post the construction of our home, would always remain as a key component of any project Peter was involved with.
