Based on the beautiful Whangaparaoa Peninsula, north of Auckland, Iconic Homes offers a range of building services for residential new builds and renovations. “We’re a high-end residential builder,” says owner Jason Mann. “We’re a small company, just six to seven staff.”
Small they may be, but it hasn’t stopped this bespoke building company from winning an Architectural Design New Zealand Award and breathing new life into old colonial villas. From design and construction through to the finishing touches and Council consent, Iconic Homes offers homeowners the flexibility to be as involved (or uninvolved) as they want over the course of their build. So, when a client requested DynexSoffit for both the upper and lower levels of their two-storey home in Stanmore Bay, Jason and the Iconic Homes team were happy to oblige.
“The owner wanted a great looking soffit that was low-maintenance and needed no painting,” says Jason. “That DynexSoffit is backed by a 25-year manufacturers guarantee is a bonus.”
DynexSoffit is a uPVC soffit product that is pre-finished during the manufacturing process, meaning it requires no painting after installation — and therefore, no repainting down the track either. An annual wash-down is all it ever needs in terms of maintenance. For Jason’s client, it ticked all the boxes.
For a bespoke builder like Iconic Homes, it’s essential that the products they use are of good quality and aesthetically pleasing. In that regard, DynexSoffit delivered. Made in New Zealand for local conditions, the soffit boards are designed with hidden fixings, so they aren’t scarred by any unsightly nails, and their sleek tongue and groove look complemented the home’s overall design.
“It was easy to cut and work with,” says Jason. “Even though it was our first time using it, it was really easy to install. It was very quick. All our team liked it. I’d definitely use it again.”
With the new build done and dusted, the client couldn’t be happier. And with a new quality product to add to their repertoire, so are Jason and the team at Iconic Homes.
