Why talk to us?

Operating in Wellington for over 35 years, the Ludlow Builders team has a well-deserved reputation for superb quality craftsmanship, and knowing how to make our clients happy.

We take a professional approach to managing our projects down to the smallest detail, and you can count on our experience, expert advice and specialist knowledge of the latest building techniques and trends as well as a deep understanding of the techniques used to construct many of our region’s older and historic homes.

We’re proud that many of our clients keep us on speed-dial, and come straight back to Ludlow Builders when they have a new project in mind.

Our promise

Our clients’ wishes are our top priority. We will listen carefully to you, and make sure we understand how you see yourself living in your home. You can rely on our knowledge, expertise and skill to make sure that you get exactly what you want.

You can confidently leave it all up to us – we will give you a detailed estimate of the cost, and manage the entire process for you.

You’ll be able to open the door and move in with a smile, knowing we’ve organised all the right tradies and subbies, arranged the delivery and storage of materials, built and supervised the construction, dealt with all the consents and inspections, and kept everything on track. We’ll keep you in the loop, every step of the way.

It’s all part of our wrap-around service!
