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.

Our Simple 3 Step Renovation Process




What People Are Saying

As we had not had any need to use a builder before we were unsure of who to use. The company who we engaged to draw our plans recommended two building companies one of which was Paal and his team.  The plans drawn for the renovations were very basic and our kitchen laundry area was very limited for storage space and room. Paal was very thorough and discussed the plans with us, asking questions about what we wanted and giving us a lot of great ideas that we had not considered or were offered by the draftsman.
Paal recommended a Kitchen specialist and worked with them to ensure the layout of the kitchen and laundry worked well for the area. If they had continued with the original plans the kitchen and laundry area would have been a disappointment. Paal was very accommodating when we changed or added things to the renovation project. Paal project managed the renovations and ensured everything was completed efficiently and to a high standard. Paal and the foreman Sam explained everything to us throughout the project. When decisions needed to be made Paal gave us options, explaining the advantages and disadvantages so we could make an informed decision. The tradesmen were very polite and always tidied up as much as possible each day, this was important to us as we were continuing to live in the house while being renovated.
We would recommend Paal and his team to our family and friends, as we were delighted with the results.

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.

We were absolutely delighted with the renovation Smith and Sons did on our bathroom. From start to finish the process was seamless, the communication excellent and time line spot on. All the sub contractors were very professional and great to have in the house. We would highly recommend them.
