Our Story

Eddie and Silvana Burger established the original family owned store based in Gansbaai in February 2004, recently in 2015, the Burger family embarked on another adventure with the acquisition of Build it Hermanus. Following the 12-year success story of Build it Gansbaai it was time to expand, making Build it Hermanus the flagship of Hermanus building supplies and construction materials; setting a new standard in the building materials arena.

Dylan and Clayden Burger recently took over the management and ownership of both stores from their parents and will continue to offer the Hermanus community the same service excellence they have become accustomed to over the years. Growing up learning the business and connecting with their local communities, Dylan and Clayden have a passion for both the business and the people involved.

As an independently owned building materials business, Dylan and Clayden Burger offer a personalized service to their local community free from corporate red tape and hassles.

Build It Hermanus

Always deliver more than expected, customer service shouldn’t just be a department, it should be entrenched in every area of the business. Instead of focusing on the competition, let’s focus on the customer, how can we help them make home building simple?

Clayden Burger

Owner, Director

Make every detail perfect, limit the number of details to perfect, and always look for the fool in the deal. If you don’t find one, it’s you. We are serving customers, not a life sentence we need to enjoy our work – service, is not what you do, but who you are!

Giving Back

Our values are the principles that help guide our business and shape our brand into something special that customers can rely on consistently, no matter which community we operate in.

Build it Hermanus is deeply involved in the local community we serve and believe that it is our duty and responsibility to give back to the communities that support us. The essence of our business is building, renovation, and home improvement and by extension, development. One of the ways we do this is through our ongoing sponsorship of under 13 soccer development in Hermanus.

The youth are the future of our beautiful region and by nurturing a healthy lifestyle through sport, we are building a better future for us all. Our contributions to community projects such as water boreholes and school renovations are also a massive priority for the Hermanus Build it, team.
