Our Area

We work with home owners across the Manawatu region including Palmerston North and surrounding districts.

You'll find every type of house in the Manawatu.  Weatherboard bungalows and statehouses from the 1940s and 1950s, brick, plaster and weatherboard family homes from the 1970's alongside cottages & villas from earlier settlement.  More recently built modest town houses to million dollar dwellings are adding to the mix, along with some lovely lifestyle block and rural homesteads.

Although they have solid bones, many older homes fall short of today’s building standards - especially in the areas of insulation, open-plan spaces and indoor-outdoor flow. Combined with the increasing difficulty in securing property in popular locations it will make sense for many home owners to renovate – making the house they have into the home they want.

What People Are Saying

I highly recommend Smith & Sons Manawatu.  I will be using them again for any building projects, especially if it has to look good.  As a ‘do it yourself’ bloke, I had my doubts about using professionals but the results are far better than I could have achieved.  Best of all, it was all done within budget and completed on time -- the quick completion was a MUST for the main bathroom, but would also be true for kitchens, as each day costs more in takeout food.

As there weren't many builders reviews available in late 2014, we decided to go with Smith & Sons because we felt we could trust them.

Firstly, they are a professional service with good project management.  Secondly, they had good ideas - practical solutions to getting the finished bathroom we wanted.  This really showed in their knowledge of current products and experience with similar jobs.

They didn’t have to lowest quote, but it was fully itemised, easy to understand, and they had a great relationship with the subcontractors.

In the end, the final cost was LESS than the quote for two reasons:  we didn’t change our minds on any major, and there wasn’t as much re-building as initially thought (you couldn't tell until the demolition was finished).  Most importantly, everything was finished and tidy when they left -- no little follow-up jobs or call backs required.

We have been looking for some time now for a good builder around Palmerston North and came across Smith & Sons on the Internet.  We gave them a call and Paal came down to the house straight away to have a look at the job I wanted doing.

After carefully going over what was wanted he came up with a brilliant solution for the repair that actually cost a lot less than what we had originally budgeted for.  He and his team arrived on the day he promised (yes truly amazing for a builder) and started work completing a first class job, well within budget.

Since then we have used Paal for all our repairs on both our 1924 two story character home and our rental property.  Each time he has completed the job on time and well within budget completing a first class job on every occasion.

His team of craftsmen conduct themselves very professionally, are polite and complete a fantastic job leaving the area clean and tidy every day.  Paal is a great guy, easy to talk to and happy to explain the job in laymen’s terms from start to finish.  We will use Paal for all our future building work and have recommended him to all our family and friends.

We would recommend Paal and his team without hesitation, to anyone who wants a reliable high quality builder who can do what he says and completes a very professional job every time.

As home owners we look to accomplish tasks that add extra quality and function to our family home.

Having worked with Paal Iversen previously, it was natural we returned to him.  My wife and I have found Paal approachable, receptive (to ideas and changes) and also very good at advancing concepts for us to consider.

Having experienced shortfalls with another building contractor, especially in the small order job, I found that Paal was eager to assist and help accomplish what we wanted.  His crew were exceptional, polite and keen to assist in delivering a quality end job.

I would certainly use them again knowing that they will look at the task at hand, discuss the project, provide a cost effective quote and then deliver a quality end product.  We have already recommended that my son use Smith & Sons services without considering anyone else.
