Renova

“We stumbled across RENOVA at a time when we were disillusioned by other firms who wanted a large initial outlay for assessment, design and planning.  Given that we both work full time, the last thing we wanted to do was project manage a big renovation.  All the decisions were made in a few meetings with John, Alan and Penny and we then let RENOVA get on with it.  The all inclusive product RENOVA offer and the one point of contact are invaluable.  Unlike friends who spent all their time during a renovation chasing contractors, RENOVA took it out of our hands and did all the chasing, even when we had organised an extra piece of work in the garden which was not in their remit.

RENOVA completely transformed a badly laid out and neglected house into a warm and comfortable home and they did it on time and in budget.  When they say 8 weeks turnaround, they mean it.  All of the team are professional, friendly and nothing is too much trouble both during the works and afterwards.

The best thing we could say about RENOVA is if we were lucky enough to renovate another house again, John and Alan would be the first people we would call.”

PROJECT DETAILS

This Sale Agreed house was bought with the knowledge that it needed complete renovation. Built to 1980s building standards, it was cold and had very little insulation. Inside, everything was old, dated and the decor was old-fashioned.

Consultation

The specification and budget for the renovation were agreed upon within 2 weeks of the initial consultation. Some compromises were made to the specification, but not many. Once the sale was closed on the house, the contracts were signed.

Deep Retrofit

The detailed design stage commenced and six weeks later construction began on site. Works included the dry-lining of external walls, new windows and doors, roof insulation, a new heating system, electrical rewiring and a new stove.

Finish

New flooring, wardrobes and storage were installed, and a new kitchen and new bathrooms were fitted. All works were completed within ten weeks and included a final clean by RENOVA’s contract cleaners.

The End Result

This house was completely rejuvenated and it is now a warmer, more modern and better laid out home.
