When you have been in the business of building homes as long as Frank Verheyen has you know what will work, and more importantly what won’t when it comes to implementing a building solution that meets your needs.
Whether it’s an alteration, renovation, extension or a new home you are needing, Frank Verheyen Builders has over 40 years in the industry and has seen many different building styles come and go.
“Having been in the industry for over 40 years, we have the advantage of having worked in many types of markets and have seen what works well in a home and some of the things that sounds good, but really don’t work,” says Frank.
Based in Pukekohe, Frank immigrated with his parents in 1964 from the Netherlands after they fell in love with the landscape of New Zealand from photos they had seen. He completed his building apprenticeship with Fletchers, who were keen to develop him as a foreman due to his attention to detail in detailed work such as kitchen cabinetry.
From there, Frank honed his experience with Lockwood Homes before starting out on his own and becoming a builder of choice locally if you were wanting a quality build with a commitment to the highest standard of craftmanship along with competitive pricing.
The same commitment to customer service continues today and as a member of the Master Builders association Frank prides himself on working closely with clients throughout every stage of the process to make sure they expectations are being exceeded.
“I’ve seen a huge shift in building and how things are built since I started out. Some things are for the betterment of home owners, and I think some things perhaps not so much. The cost that it takes to build now, takes into account all the mistakes of those in the past, and I believe if they had just built them right the first time, we wouldn’t have so many hoops to jump through now. I undertake to do all jobs, whatever their size; like I would want someone to build for me. Quality work, it goes a long way these days.”
