About Black Dog Builders

Black Dog Builders is a Christchurch-based home alteration and renovation company founded by Joshua McCarus.

Josh developed a passion for building when he bought his first home in his early twenties. It needed a lot of work, but he could see the potential from the start. Determined to turn his fixer-upper into a dream home, Josh rushed home from work every day and worked well into the night bringing his ideas to life.

Many more projects down the line, Josh decided to turn his passion into a business, and has been building in New Zealand since 2009.

Specialising in renovations, alterations and extensions, Black Dog Builders’ mission is to help local Christchurch homeowners create the perfect property. With a team of experts covering every craft and trade, we have the skills, experience and dedication to bring any building project to life.

We know that undertaking a renovation project can be daunting, so we’re there for our clients every step of the way. Our motto is ‘Quality Craftsmanship, First Time’, and that’s exactly what we deliver. In an industry that relies heavily on reputation, we’ve worked hard to become synonymous with quality and reliability. Our clients trust that when they work with Black Dog Builders, their homes and livelihoods are in safe hands.

We treat our clients exactly as we’d want to be treated, and we place a high value on transparency and honesty. We maintain a strong commitment to finishing projects on time, on budget and to the high standard we are dedicated to.
