Build it Gansbaai – Building Materials and more to make home building simple!

Build It Gansbaai

Build it Gansbaai are the Market Leaders of Gansbaai Building Supplies, Construction Materials, and DIY for the local Community.

Living in Gansbaai it soon became clear that there was a gap in the market and a dream was born. In February 2004, Build it Gansbaai established by Eddie and Silvana Burger, became a reality.

The popular Gansbaai building supplies, construction materials, and hardware store has its core values aligned in Family, Entrepreneurship, and giving back to the community that supports them.  

This is the reason for their success story! 

Therefore it comes as no surprise that growing up in the business, Dylan and Clayden Burger following in their parents footsteps have played their part in this success story, as they too share a passion for the business and the people involved.

One of the ways the Burger family gives back to the community is through ongoing sponsorship of under 13 soccer development, the sinking of water boreholes and renovating schools in Gansbaai. 

“We are building a better future for our youth.”

An independently owned building materials company, offering a personalized service, Build it Gansbaai is part of a group of 374 independently owned retail stores that has been serving their communities for over 32 years across Southern Africa.

Due to the store’s prime location, friendly staff, and local delivery, Build it Gansbaai, can be found in the industrial area on the outskirts of Gansbaai, supplying the greater Overberg area with building materials, do-it-yourself home improvement tools, and expert advice.

At Build it Gansbaai they do not only see themselves as a supplier of building materials but as partners, in accomplishing all local building and renovating projects in their community.  Focusing primarily on the building of urban and township housing as well as all your Do-It-Yourself (DIY) home improvements.
