Christchurch Builders Specialising in Earthquake Repairs

Stress-free EQC repairs
& we'll handle any claims as a team.

Wrightway is one of the few trusted Christchurch builders and construction companies that can provide you with end-to-end EQC repair, as well as general construction services. Our experience in Christchurch has compounded over the last decade, developing specialist expertise in earthquake repair methodologies. We are also one of the few remaining Christchurch builders working closely with EQC and private insurers to ensure that earthquake damaged homes are repaired to an acceptable standard. Our intimate knowledge of Christchurch homes, as well as our extensive network in the construction industry allows us to simplify and manage your EQC repairs from start to finish. We are amongst the best of Christchurch construction companies who can take the stress out of earthquake repairs.

While we continue to work directly with EQC to manage repairs, our business has evolved as the property, and insurance markets in Canterbury have changed. We have found that an increasing amount of homeowners are approaching us, having already cash-settled their claims and are now looking for Christchurch builders that truly understand the earthquake repair process.

Previously, other Christchurch construction companies have just wanted to punch through the repairs as quickly as possible, leaving you, the homeowner, unsatisfied and having to make a new claim. In contrast, if you're cash-settled and need your repairs handled professionally, Wrightway would love to hear from you. Lastly, if you have a home but you don't have enough funds for the repairs, we are open to purchasing as-is-where-is properties, or chatting with you about a repair partnership where we contribute the funds required.

If you want to discuss your EQC repairs and options, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

    This company has been real good to me. Just want to say thanks for all they've done. Can't really thank them enough!

    They were great, helped me with the process, in getting a review, from EQC. The previous botched earthquake repairs were not great, but with the help of Wrightway, EQC came to the party and reviewed their contractors previous work. Thanks Wrightway!

    Hamish and the team at Wrightway were excellent to deal with when completing earthquake repairs on my Uncle's property in Monaghan St. Prompt, efficient, a tidy paperwork trail and excellent work. Thoroughly recommended. They care about their clients. Thank you! Rebecca Toone - agent at Ray White Real Estate.

Projects run smoothly when EQC repairs are scoped with the end-goal as a delighted customer. Not exactly rocket- science is it? What seems to have occurred within the Christchurch rebuild, is that Christchurch builders are only focusing on individual elements of a repair, rather than managing an end-to-end solution that’s frustration free. EQC repairs should be completed correctly, accurately and on-time. As a result, Wrightway Construction has committed to a zero defect guarantee.



Wrightway is one of the few preferred, trusted Christchurch construction companies working with closely EQC on earthquake repairs. Wrightway doesn’t accept mediocrity and doesn’t under-quote simply to win the job. An understanding that repairing a job correctly in the first instance is far more intelligent than having to rerepair, time and time again. A “Zero Defects” guarantee shows that we value our good name, our integrity and that we’re committed to excellence.



Every step of your EQC repairs is documented and reported to you, throughout the process. Clear direction and communication form our Christchurch builders and project managers promotes healthy relationships between all parties involved in your project. As well as keeping everyone in the loop, it also allows us to anticipate challenges, and easily adapt, when jobs uncover their true colours which are sometimes unavoidable. Communication is what keeps everybody positive and focused on a great end result.
