Deep retrofit is our speciality – we turn cold, draughty, poorly-designed houses into modern, energy-efficient, comfortable homes.
What‘s included in Renova’s 360° home renovations?
RENOVA’s 360° home renovations involve a deep retrofit, which is the complete overhaul of the fabric of your home. This transformative home improvement includes: roof, wall and floor insulation; windows and doors; heating and plumbing; and electrical and ventilation systems.
As part of RENOVA’s 360° renovation package, all fittings and finishes can be included in the renovation too, if required. This includes kitchens, bathrooms, wardrobes, storage, fireplace, stove, flooring, tiling and full decoration – we’ll even supply and install the blinds if required!
We Always Look At:
Feel the benefits of both heat and acoustic insulation. Choose from a range of high-quality insulation materials and applications to suit your renovation.
Install a more energy-efficient heating system that makes use of heating zones, enhanced controls, energy-efficient radiators and a new condensing boiler.
With the precise and accurate installation of specialist membranes, tapes and seals, benefit from the elimination of unwanted draughts in the renovated space.
Create a healthier environment by introducing controlled ventilation. Balance ventilation with airtightness to maintain a continuous supply of fresh air.

What is Deep Retrofit?
A Deep Retrofit is a complete overhaul of the fabric of your home, with the aim of improving energy conservation, smart energy use and your Building Energy Rating (BER). A Deep Retrofit includes: roof, wall and floor insulation; new windows and doors; and improved heating, plumbing, electrical and ventilation systems.
Uniquely, a Deep Retrofit by RENOVA includes interior design and planning, plus a complete refurbishment and redecoration of your home. This means that not only will your home feel more comfortable, but it will look better than ever, and will be fitted with new furnishings and appliances.
What will my Deep Retrofit cost?
As with all construction works, the cost of a Deep Retrofit renovation depends on the scale of the project and the specification of materials and finishes.
As a very rough guideline, we advise customers that a whole-house, mid-specification Deep Retrofit Renovation costs from €650 per m2 for the retrofit works. This includes:
- Wall insulation
- Roof Insulation
- Windows and doors
- Heat & plumbing
- NOTE 1: If you have a floor void that can be insulated then this will incur an additional optional cost
- NOTE 2: A Heat Pump, Solar Panels and other similar technologies would also incur an additional cost
The cost of fit-out and finishes are additional and, in our experience, the budget for this part of the works needs to be an additional €750 per m2. Fit out & finishes normally consists of the following:
- Kitchen + appliances
- Bathroom fit-out
- Internal doors & skirting boards
- Painting & decorating
- NOTE 3: Layout changes and other reconfiguration works normally add cost
- NOTE 4: External works are not included here, eg patio or driveway
Always bear in mind that tastes and expectations vary greatly when it comes to fit-out and finishes, so naturally the cost of fit-out and finishes can vary greatly.
At RENOVA, we will always endeavour to tailor a scope of works to suit your budget. So, if you budget doesn’t quite stretch to €1,400 per m2, speak to us and we’ll advise on how best to spend the budget that you do have.
The figures above are based on a typical 3 bed semi-detached house with 1 bathroom and a WC, circa 100m2. Economies of scale have a significant impact on the rate per m2. A smaller house will cost more per m2 and a larger house can cost less per m2 for the same works. Other works such as layout changes, structural repairs and re-roofing will also increase the budget.
NOTE 5: Our pricing always includes design and management plus all fittings and finishes and VAT for a full turn-key service.
NOTE 6: The information above is provided as a guideline. Do not reply make any financial decisions based on the information provided here.
Do RENOVA only do Deep Retrofit projects?
No, while we specialise in Deep Retrofit, we regularly carry our renovation projects that would not be considered ‘Deep Retrofit’ projects.
At RENOVA we understand that the budget isn’t always there for the full Deep Retrofit and Fit-Out; or that maybe you just want to work on part of your house.
So we are happy to tailor a package of renovation works to suit your budget. Our chartered quantity surveyors have the required experience to recommend the wisest choices, so that you get the best out of your budget.
If you need an expert to plan, price and implement the wisest possible renovation of your home, then we believe we offer the best value and service in the marketplace.
Why Design & Build?
Design and build is appealing to homeowners for numerous reasons:
Why engage RENOVA?
A proper Deep Retrofit is a major project, where you will require clear guidance during the planning phase, expertise to price the project correctly, experienced tradespeople to do the job properly and skilled management and coordination while the work is being done. These are all core strengths of RENOVA.
We can guarantee you a fixed and final cost for your project up front.
We only partner with trusted, highly-qualified professionals. We are ideally positioned to act as a single point of contact to manage the Deep Retrofit of your home.
Our showroom and designers will ensure that the selection of all finishes is made as easy as possible.
What makes RENOVA different to other companies?
We guarantee a completely stress-free experience every time. Our service is swift and prompt, and when we say that your projects will cost €X, you can be confident that this is correct.
RENOVA will also bring strong management skills and quality of service to your project and then combine the best people and products to complete the job to the highest standards. If you scratch the surface of other retrofit companies, you’ll often find that they are really insulation or plumbing companies that have decided to expand the scope of their services.
Our showroom is a great location to learn about the technical elements of the project and to select all of your finishes too.
No one else we know of provides the professional input at design stage to ensure you get the right end result.
Can I choose materials and providers other than those specified by RENOVA?
Although we have no financial obligation to any supplier or tradesman, our service and warranty is based on using our chosen tradesmen, providers and materials. This will not restrict you in any way because our range of partners and suppliers at RENOVA can satisfy any requirement.
Where can I inspect materials?
Samples of all materials are available to view at our showroom in Kilmacanogue. At our showroom we have built examples of our insulation techniques and methods so that you can fully understand the works that we propose to do.
Does RENOVA build new houses or house extensions?
No we don’t.
RENOVA specialises in the renovation of existing houses. We do not build new houses or extensions. For this type of project, we recommend that you engage the services of a RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) registered architect who will manage your process.
