You do not have to move away from your beloved suburb or spend your savings on stamp duty for a new home.
Instead, as a client recently told us: “you get to live in your own holiday home” at home!
If you want to take advantage of practical renovation advice coupled with solid designs and meticulous delivery, then let us give your home a makeover.
We first start by consulting with you on your design preferences to ensure your vision is worked into the project from early on. We give you guidance and feedback on timelines, potential costs and how to build real value into your project.You get to touch and feel various samples and we also point you towards the showrooms of our high quality suppliers. We believe the design stage should be fun and informative.
The next step is to settle on a design specification. Depending on the scope of the work involved, you will receive design drawings that cover everything from cabinet detail to wall colourings and light fittings. Once you approve the design, we can firm up the quotation. Our quotations are always fixed, so you can be rest assured that everything in the quote is fully accounted for.
Here we go! We consult with you a convenient time to do the renovation and then draw up a full renovation program. You will notice that out sites are always left clean and you will have courteous tradesmen working at your home. We also offer other services like container storage for your furniture and temporary bathrooms. It is all about making the renovation as convenient for you as possible.
There is no need to be at home to open up for trades. Most clients let us have the house keys so that we can manage the work accordingly. Some clients decide to move out temporarily, especially with the full home renovations if the bathrooms are impacted. Usually with a single area project like a kitchen, clients tend to stay at home, taking advantage of the odd dinner out and the backyard bbq
Most renovation works are second fixing items. The Building Regulations Act draws the conclusion that unless the improvement works are of a structural nature, there is no need for a building permit. Therefore, if you are planning on taking out an internal wall (the most common structural work), then we will have to prepare a building permit application by getting your existing house plans marked up by a structural engineer and submitting them to council for approval
Our project scopes are very comprehensive. We invest a lot time to ensure that every “t” is crossed and every “I” is dotted. If a renovation item cannot be quantified (common with old houses), we would flag it in the project scope. That way you receive a fixed price and that price is honoured. We find that 9 out of 10 variations on our projects are changes from the client, usually associated with additional work around the house.
