The Company

DJ van Tonder & Seuns is a registered and licensed company ensuring high quality work by subcontractors as well as our own team.

The company has been involved in a multitude of building projects since its establishment, acquiring invaluable knowledge, skills, experience as well as expertise. We have the resources as well as expertise to accept a wide range of projects, small, medium as well as large and complex. A superior standard of quality has become synonymous with our company due to the commitment and drive of our team, the unrivalled workmanship, service and work ethic as well as staying within the time-line and budget.

Our team handles most of the construction work, but when required, we work with quality subcontractors to complete specialised work which fall outside the expertise of our team.

We take on any construction related work, be it complex and comprehensive or simple and small. However, our main focus is new projects in the form of modern residential homes, cottages as well as beach holiday homes.

Whether constructing a new house, restoring an old building, or renovating/extending your existing home, it involves special knowledge and skills. A large number of prospective home owners are blissfully unaware of all the different aspects and pitfalls involved in the process. DJ van Tonder & Seuns has years of experience and an unblemished track record.

In 1980 DJ van Tonder (Danie) started a construction business called DJ van Tonder & Seuns. His three sons assisted him over weekends while attending school during the week. His son, Gerdus, completed his training as Building Surveyor and entered the building industry full-time in 1993. Currently Gerdus is the proud owner of this construction company specialising in the building of new houses as well as restoring, renovating and extending existing houses.

We strive to deliver on schedule as well as stay within the budget. Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, therefore each project is handled personally by the owner. Our team members, most of which have been with us close on 15 years, take pride in their work, and rightly so.

We are very well aware of the constant changes in the building industry, ever changing building regulations as well as the new building related products on the market. We stay abreast of new trends such as installing solar geysers, solar panels and solar pumps where those are required by the latest building regulations, or where customers prefer to go green.
