What our Clients Say


We feel very fortunate to have been recommended IQ Homes to do the rebuild of our house in Christchurch.  They were extremely professional, friendly and easy to work with.  We were having to do the project remotely which is always a concern on any building project, but they went out of the way to collect us from the airport, suggest when we needed to be there for decisions and kept us up to date on progress.

We also couldn’t ask for a better builder on site.  Maurice – you are the star.  Very high quality workmanship, with amazing attention to detail – plus using quality tradespeople absolutely shines through in all aspects of the build.  We are delighted with our home and really can’t thank you enough. 

To be a happy customer at the end of a building project probably says it all.  

I can highly recommend IQ Homes.

Thanks to the whole team.

After the September 2010 earthquake my house was badly damaged and needed to be demolished.


I spent considerable time looking at show homes to decide which company I would trust to rebuild my home.  I am 99% sure that there was no building company left in Christchurch whose show home I had not inspected, some of them several times.


When I walked into the IQ show home I knew that this was the company that would rebuild my home.  The unique design, the quality of the workmanship, the attention to detail was impressive.


From the beginning IQ Homes went out of their way to accommodate my thoughts and ideas for the house plan.  Their architect was innovative and very willing to make suggestions to improve on my ideas.


Once work started on the rebuild I was kept up to date with the project progress.  Their builder was in regular contact and the other contracted tradesmen completed their work on time and to a high standard.


To say that I am fastidious about my home would be a massive understatement.  I need to know that everything about my home is finished to perfection, and I need to be kept in the loop every step of the way.  IQ Homes ensured that I was kept up to date with all aspects of the rebuild and answered all of my questions (and there were many) with caring and understanding, a great comfort to those of us who have needed to cope with all the emotional turmoil following those big quakes.


Since the completion of the house IQ Homes followed up by ensuring that I was completely happy with the finished home.  A couple of minor fixes were completed very quickly.


If I was to bullet point the reasons why IQ Homes ticked all the boxes for my rebuild it would be as follows:-


  • Reliability and honesty of their staff
  • Attention to detail
  • Willingness to accommodate their client’s requests
  • Providing regular updates on the project
  • Contracting qualified trades people who complete their work to a very high standard
  • IQ Homes staff are all qualified trades people who are in a position to provide sound advice to all aspects of their projects
  • Caring and understanding given the current situation in Christchurch


In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending IQ Homes to anyone who wants a quality home built within an agreed timeframe.

My Wife and I are thrilled with our new home. If we had to describe the building process in one word, it would be 'easy'. We actually enjoyed the building process. We were warned by friends that it would be a stressful time but found quite to the contrary, we looked forward to seeing the progress on site daily and dealing with one person who took care of everything. They are a company that strive to build the house you want, not what they think you should have like some other companies. The team at iQ Homes were always available to answer any construction queries we had and always with a cheery disposition.

During the planning stage nothing was a problem and communication was superb. If we thought of a question late at night we simply emailed the team and had an answer by phone call the next morning. The tradesmen used by iQ Homes have obviously selected as top of the choice available as the workmanship in our new home is in our opinion superior to that of many show homes. We had the benefit of advice from specialists in each area of the construction and their answers to our questions made the building process so much easier.

When we visited the site we were always made to feel welcome by the crew working there as they all were proud to be building with the iQ team. I have referred several friends and they are all amazed after the first meeting at how flexible this company is. The customer is always right and anything can be accomplished.

We feel that this attitude will see iQ Homes become a very big company soon and wish them all the best in doing so.

The team at iQ Homes are fantastic. From our very first consultation they have proven themselves to be a company who will go that extra mile to help you achieve your dreams. We love how iQ Homes have taken our own design and turned it into reality. Every question raised has been answered, each request has been discussed and where possible applied to the building process. This is the second house we have built but our first with iQ Homes. The team at iQ Homes are very approachable and treat you like one of their own friends. This has enabled us to build a trusting relationship with all members of the team which has made the building process this time round a breeze. Thanks iQ.

I am absolutely thrilled with my new home built by iQ Homes. My house was a challenging design based on an American traditional two storey home with a steep pitch roof, numerous gables, a dorma window and varying ceiling heights. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail were a credit to the builder. Their construction team and subcontractors were a pleasure to deal with and were of the highest calibre. I would highly recommend iQ Homes to any discerning home builder.

At 86 and 81 years of age, with no experience of modern building but with very set ideas of what we wanted, we decided to build a large family home and asked iQ Homes to give us a quote. My husband had spent many hours drawing the plans in great detail and we were not going to be the easiest clients to deal with but iQ were happy and we felt confident with them and decided to go ahead. From the onset we found them extremely patient, helpful and anxious to fulfill the sometimes minute details of our requests. We were encouraged to be involved in the various stages of the building so that any little problems were ironed out as it went along.

We found everyone friendly and anxious to please us and wish to thank especially Sue, Ian and our Project Managers Scott and more recently Vaughan who were always there for us, our builder Don and all the specialist craftsman, electrician, plumber, tiler, bricklayer etc who all played an important part in putting this project together so successfully. I particularly wish to thank the joiner for my fabulous kitchen, carefully designed so that all my utensils are at hand and Decra Art for my stunning granite bench top.

We have only recently moved in and it will be several weeks before we are straight but already it feels like home. This has been a huge undertaking for us both but well worthwhile and I feel we made many friends along the way.
