Support to Expect

Initially, your construction project will undertake planning and be scoped in detail. Our earthquake builders will visit your property and carry out an in-depth building inspection on both your exterior and interior, for your repairs and renovations.

Next, Wrightway will give you an accurate time-line, staging milestones, so there are no surprises. If you ever feel we're off target, please understand that you can openly talk to us, and together we can ensure you're comfortable with our performance and progress.
We'll communicate throughout your entire earthquake service or building project, so you always know how your project is progressing.

From time to time, all Christchurch earthquake builders face weather interruptions to our schedules, but such delays are easily communicated, and assuming that everyone is fair and reasonable, your construction project can adapt to suit.
Again, our goal is to help you navigate your home renovations, design and earthquake repairs with as little disruption as possible.

EQC Support - Earthquake Repairs

Most Christchurch homeowners who were affected by the earthquakes aren't aware of EQC's recent announcement. If you have purchased a house, post-quake, that was fixed, and you've discovered a substandard earthquake service and building repairs, or if you're experiencing evidence that your home hasn't been repaired correctly, then Wrightway can help. EQC is now accepting new claims to protect buyers of EQC repaired homes.

Wrightway Construction is one of the few ECQ approved Christchurch construction companies, and we can help you through this process, providing guidance on claims, your insurance terms and your best options including addition renovations.
