Guaranteed Completion Date

We are so confident in our processes, systems and workmanship that we guarantee our completion date. If we should ever fall short of delivering this this we will gift to you a $350 gift voucher of your choice. Just our way of saying sorry.

Estimate Price Guarantee

At A Cut Above Building we are so confident in our ability to deliver a realistic budget on new builds, that we guarantee our quotation will be within 10% of our initial estimate. We spend that extra time at the beginning getting your estimate accurate so you don't end up with a budget blow out at the other end.

Total Fixed Price Contract

Contracts can be full of loop holes and open ended costs. We minimise the use of provisional costs so that what we agree on is what you get. We will provide you with a full building contract stating clearly what is included or excluded. We guarantee to build your home for the amount stated in our contract ...not a penny more.

Regular Communication

Communication is key to a happy build, and we want you to be just as excited and involved with the creation of your biggest investment. Regular updates and our site systems are just one way we help this process. We guarantee at least one call a week to let you know how everything is going.

Maintenance Guarantee

Just because your house is complete, doesn't mean our job is. Six months & twelve months after completion we will follow up and make sure your pristine home is still a cut above the rest. Over and above this we will provide you with a comprehensive BRANZ Maintenance Schedule, which guides you through looking after your largest investment, as a lack of maintenance alone can bring expensive problems.


We take such pride in all aspects of our work. We only use the best products and we only allow trusted subcontractors on site. We guarantee you will be happy with our workmanship, sub contractors & materials we use.
