Your boys are awesome and work extremely hard – but at the same time are most courteous and accommodating, as well as meticulous.
It’s so nice to see a good team!

Kind regards, Sue During


Nathan and his team completed a large outdoor seating area for us in 2018. What was immediately apparent is Nathan’s unwavering passion for assisting his clients to create spaces that are ascetically pleasing but functional. Nathan’s very high standards of workmanship are replicated through his team of qualified tradesman. Both Locky and Jordy of Nathan Cook Builders were meticulous with detail and their finishing work was superb. Our project didn’t have a plan and was designed and built with little information provided. Victoria and I would highly recommend Nathan and his team to anyone and we will certainly use them again when the opportunity presents itself.

Delighted! – Blair & Victoria Page, Darfield


Lounge Renovation– Nathan and his team were awesome to deal with and we would happily use them again! We really appreciated the time and ideas Nathan put into designing our lounge renovations… he achieved just what we wanted and the standard of workmanship is outstanding. His entire team are just great and very easy to deal with.

New Build– We engaged Nathan – Owner of Nathan Cook Builders to build our new house in late 2017.

Building can be very stressful but right from our very first meeting we got a warm friendly helpful feeling and felt very comfortable and confident we had made the right decision for Nathan and his team to get a quality home built for us.

The team of builders that Nathan has are and were exceptional to work with along with the Project Manager who kept us informed regularly of schedules and times different sub-contractors would be on site doing work and kept us up to date of all completion dates at each stage of the build.

The workmanship of Nathan and his team of builders was done to the highest standard, every detail done with expertise and whoever was on site were helpful and obliging if at anytime we had questions or wanted to make changes. Not one thing was a problem and we worked together to achieve a wonderful outcome.

Both David and I are confident and have no hesitation to recommend Nathan and his fantastic team of builders to build a new home for anyone wanting a professional hands on service.

We sincerely thank you Nathan, your team of builders, Paul your Project Manager for the high level of professionalism and expertise involved in helping us complete our beautiful home.
Kindest Regards

Renovation – “Nathan and his Team converted our old woolshed into a beautiful rustic fitness studio with working kitchen. From the outset Nathan and Lachy made great suggestions for the build from gutting the shed through to the construction of a mezzanine floor and conversion of this amazing space. From the combination of recycled timber (from the woolshed) new lining on the walls to the rustic architrave – Nathan’s team took personal care in creating an area that feels warm and inviting where my clients now love to workout.

We found the boys to be friendly and enthusiastic on our project and each had real heart in their contribution.

We have no hesitation in recommending Nathan Cook Builders for their craftmanship, professional approach and thank you for creating a very special place which is being enjoyed by many!”

New Build – “We are extremely happy with the finished product of our new build. We found Nathan, Paul and Locky extremely easy to deal with. They were always helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. They provided us with great suggestions on how to improve the house and any changes we made were happily accepted. Inevitably with a project such as a new house there were going to be some small issues and we emphasize ‘small’ but these were happily resolved and to an above satisfactory standard. We would happily recommend Nathan and his team to anyone thinking about building a new house.”

Earthquake Repair– “Our gratitude to Nathan and his team for the recent repair to our home. His quest for excellence and his integrity is beyond question, and we would have no hesitation recommending Nathan
Cook Builders for any repair or construction.”

Earthquake Repair – “We couldn’t be happier with how the whole process played out. Nathan Cook Builders were amazing to deal with. Their communication and advice throughout every stage of the build was superior. Over the last 9 months, I had to learn a new language for talking to Paul over the phone from Auckland but he was so patient and respectful that I never felt stupid or annoying to him. Additional to that, the workers were so pleasant, mannerly and polite, a real credit to Nathan’s team. And last but not least, the standard of repair we received has been incredibly high. Thank you for making the whole experience so simplified and easy, and of course, for giving us an amazing new home, we absolutely love it.”

Earthquake Repair– Following the Darfield earthquake in 2011 my partner and I contracted Nathan Cook Builders to rebuild our 1930’s weatherboard bungalow. Our home was extensively damaged and given it’s age and the complications that came with EQC and our insurance company this was a challenging time for all concerned. Nathan and his team worked calmly and methodically with me every step of the way, no problem was too difficult to overcome and consequently this professional, dedicated can- do building team put a difficult time behind us and had us back in our renovated home. Since then we have had Nathan Cook Builders back on two occasions to build a couple of three bay sheds. The quality or the build in both sheds could not be faulted. Should we have another building project come up in the future Nathan and his team would always be our preferred builders.

Earthquake Repair– “Having contractors on your property is like parenthood. They just arrive, you have no idea how to cope, or what to expect! With contractors, Chippies in particular, foremost in your mind is a finished job which meets your expectations.

What you don’t appreciate at the time, is how you will handle having them on your property, in your face, day after day, week after week, month after month.

In our case, Nathan and his men were here for 15 months as they completed a major earthquake rebuild. Nathan had come well recommended, giving us initial confidence in our dealings with him. Like attracts like, and this was so with the gang of chaps he employed. We found all Nathan’s team a delight to have working on our job. Pleasant, cheerful and helpful to a fault.

Workmanship, well, tops, not only that, Nathan has an eye for finishing and an eye for suggesting how a particular task is best approached, planned and how it will look. We found his advice of immense value as we charted the unknown path of our rebuild.

The completed job is a credit to Nathan and his team. Anyone who would like to view our resplendent home, would be most welcome. Nathan will provide you with our contact details.”

Renovation – “The project was far-reaching in terms of structural and corrective elements necessary to rearrange and update this large two-storey, brick-clad house. Nathan and his team performed extremely well, – both the engineer and architect were impressed with his management of the site and control of his team/trades and the quality of the work. Hi technical ability is obvious and his proposals for solutions to the inevitable problems were always sensible, cost effective and acceptable to the local authority inspector.

I would recommend Nathan as an experienced, capable and responsive builder without hesitation.”

Perry E Miles


Renovation – “Seven years ago, a building contractor who viewed our 100+ old residence told us “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear” – referring to the state of the house and size of the project. Seven years on with tremendous enthusiasm, patience and expertise, Nathan has been instrumental in achieving the “silk purse” effect – elegantly returning a run-down home to its former splendour. We quickly learnt that Nathan has a high level of integrity ie. he does what he says in the time frame that he sets – he has never let us down.

We have absolutely no hesitation is recommending Nathan as a communicative and competent builder with a solid team.”
