Christchurch Builders Specialising in Earthquake Repairs

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

Wrightway is a trusted Christchurch construction company who can provide you with end-to-end EQC repairs, and building renovation services. We have built up specialist knowledge of earthquake repair methodologies over the last decade and are one of the few building companies still working closely with EQC and private insurers to ensure that earthquake damaged homes are correctly repaired. Using our knowledge and networks, we can simplify and manage your EQC repairs from start to finish, taking the stress out of the repair for you. We have access to all the expert services required to repair your home.

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 more and more homeowners are approaching us directly when they have cash-settled their claims and are looking for a company that truly understands the earthquake repair process, and can support them through that. Others just want to move on, and in this case, we are open to purchasing properties AS-IS to facilitate this.

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

  • We really appreciate the great work Wrightway team has done for us. Particular mention to the change of repair strategy that not only saved time but also saved a significant amount of money for us .I would certainly recommend Wrightway to other homeowners in the future.

    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 contractors 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 a preferred, trusted construction partner for EQC repairs because 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 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.
