About Uthando Renovations - Gerry

Gerry Bezuidenhout

About Gerry

Gerry is a qualified construction manager with years of hands-on experience in the plumbing and construction industry.

Building and creating are in Gerry’s blood. His grandfather was a builder and a carpenter. Gerry is a hands-on contractor who isn’t afraid to get stuck into a job and sling cement.

Gerry isn’t only well versed in construction, he also has a love for woodwork and can be found in front of a lathe or saw creating custom tables, biltong makers or shelving on the weekends.

“I have a passion for woodwork. On the weekends, you’ll find me standing in front of the lathe with a piece of wood, shaping it and sanding it until I’m happy with what’s it’s become.”

Gerry takes this same passion and dedication with him to every job, and that’s an Uthando Renovations guarantee.

Our Projects

Uthando Renovations construction, renovation and custom jobs

A beautiful bathroom
in Blythedale

We loved this job because
it was a challenge!

A client contracted Uthando Renovations to update and transform their bathroom. This job started with a bit of a challenge because previous contractors had used the incorrect products and tools for the bathroom renovations. We stripped it down and did it the right way. 

Facelift for a flat in Durban North

We loved creating this
cozy living space!

Uthando Renovations had the job of creating a simple, fresh look for a flat in Durban North. After getting rid of the wood borer and old carpets, we laid down beautiful wood laminate flooring, made built-in cabinets and extended a wall to create better flow in the flat.

A custom made feature coffee table

We enjoyed creating a custom piece for our client!

Uthando Renovations were contacted to create a custom coffee table. We were excited to create this modern coffee table that suited our clients taste and living space! 

Custom work for a local saddlery

We loved adding upgrades to this local business
