About Us

Successfully building high quality, architecturally designed new and renovated houses for over fifteen years.
We care
about the quality outcome of your building project as much as you do.

Our proven track record of effective project management and administration offers you peace of mind with your project. We are a small, boutique building company so you will deal direct either Marty or the foreman.

We have a personalized approach with a strong emphasis on reliability, integrity, attention to detail and quality of workmanship. Our work not only results in outstanding homes, but more importantly in very satisfied clients.

Our price presentations before a project are clear and professional. Our contracts are arranged on a fixed price basis.
We believe price is an important factor. Equally important for a quality result and satisfied customer are:

  • reliability
  • integrity
  • attention to detail
  • quality of workmanship

The success of our projects is reliant upon open communication between the client, the architect and ourselves.

How do you know you are making the best choice? As a team we have won Local Gold awards at the Annual Placemakers Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition every time we have entered.

Please contact Marty van der Burg Builders to discuss your project requirements.
