About Us

TrueStyle Improvements was created because we felt there was a gap in the market. There were plenty of builders and landscapers, but not really anyone who was doing both.

At the time we had a small business, doing renovations, home maintenance, repairing and installing swimming pools.  We knew we had what it took to create a new business to take our expertise further.

To add to our qualifications Craig is a Licensed Building Practioner.

As the business has grown, our knowledge and expertise has expanded, along with our staff.

We now have a wonderful team of staff that have been with TrueStyle for a number of years now, and have over 20 years combined experience.  We are a team that over the years has developed into a kind of family unit.

Craig & Shona

Craig grew up in Galatea on a dairy farm, before moving to Te Awamutu to complete his secondary schooling.  Craig became trade qualified in the automotive industry, then moved forward into sales and management.

Craig is very practical and always has had a passion for creating and building.  Craig and Shona bought an old state house as their first home, and completely renovated it.  That was the first of four houses.  TrueStyle Improvements was formed as they felt there was a real gap in the market.  Craig and Shona felt there was builders or landscapers or pool builders, but not a company that could do it all.  TrueStyle Improvements is that company.

Craig has many other passions.  He has a real love of the great outdoors.  He often goes back to the Galatea foothills where he bow hunts.  He competes in barefoot waterskiing and squash, and has completed the Rotorua Marathon.  He also scuba dives and mountain bikes.

Shona grew up in Te Awamutu.  She and Craig lived in Hamilton for 5 years when first married, then moved back to Te Awamutu where they currently live now, just out of Te Awamutu.  They also have a property at Mangakino where they enjoy lots of family fun on the lake.

Shona and Craig have 3 adult children, with the eldest Liam working with them in the business. When Shona gets any free time she enjoys walking and gardening.  One of Shona’s big personal achievements has been completing the Oxfam 100km Trail Walk twice.

Happy Customers

From quote to finish - the replacement of our damaged pool has been made stress free and easy to navigate, mainly due to the professional support and input from Craig and his team, who have all been very friendly and approachable, despite any questions we have had throughout the installation. We are over the moon with the awesome new pool and entertainment area we now have for us to enjoy with our grandaughter, family and friends for the rest of our lives. Without a doubt, highly recommended, communication throughout the project has been excellent
