About Us

“We Listen. We Build”

Keith Root Building Services – your Northern Beaches builder – is a family-owned, multi-award winning residential building business that has been building and renovating homes on the Northern Beaches for over 30 years.

We are a fully licensed and insured builder, plus a member of the Master Builders Association.

We cover all facets of the residential building market, from a new deck or outdoor living space, to a knock-down and rebuild of a family home. With so much experience we have many clients who have used us for multiple builds as they’ve moved home within the area and of course, we have been responsible for some iconic building works such as Baleen at Whale Beach.

We work closely with specialist partners in tiling, plumbing and electrical services and our suppliers have been carefully selected due to their parallel business principles, attention to detail, timely delivery and environmental credentials. Living on the Northern Beaches ensures that we maintain best practice design and build principles for such a beautiful coastal area.

We pride ourselves on our workmanship, attention to detail, and our award-winning customer service, but what makes us different, is that we aim to exceed our clients’ expectations by going the extra mile, and value-adding throughout the build.

We find that the best place to start is to get to know our clients, and to hear their stories. This enables us to understand how and why their current home/ space isn’t working, as well as their ideas, dreams and vision for the future. Only then, and because of our considerable experience, are we able to recommend practical solutions based on the existing structure or land space that are in keeping with budget and style limitations. Maintaining a truly collaborative and consultative relationship with not just our clients, but also with designers, trades, and suppliers throughout the build ensures that we live up to our core values of “We Listen. We Build”.

Using a genuinely client-centric approach is enormously rewarding because, not only do we get to know our clients well (many become friends and repeat clients) but in modifying their homes, we are genuinely making a difference and changing the way that families live and how they interact with their spaces.
