Renova

“To put things very simply, choosing RENOVA was one of the best decisions we have ever made.

We undertook a major internal renovation downstairs in a regular 4-bedroom semi-detached house as well as installing a combination of internal and external insulation. We took the opportunity to upgrade our heating, electrics and windows and then simply did a house-wide redecoration.

There are so many things that they do excellently – the standard of workmanship is second to none across all areas, communication at every stage is thorough and inclusive, there is absolute clarity on all costs (including VAT) and on all savings for grants and tax, organisation of each step within the process flows seamlessly, agreed time lines are realistic and adhered to, any issues are dealt with promptly and undertaking of any follow-up issues is timely.

The personal involvement of John at the early stages, Alan on site, Penny for design and each and every tradesperson makes the experience stressless and even enjoyable. As a result we have a really warm and comfortable home which is a pleasure to live in and easy to maintain. We are also pleasantly surprised at our reduced energy costs which will be an ongoing benefit.

RENOVA is possibly the most professional, organised and hard-working outfits we have ever dealt with and they manage to achieve this without losing the personal touch. We simply cannot recommend them highly enough.”

PROJECT DETAILS

Consultation

Our client on this job had recently retired and was motivated by this to get their house ‘just right’. They had a lovely home but it wasn’t as comfortable as it could be and the layout needed improving. Both clients were quite particular and were keen to ensure that the job was done right. We initially met at the RENOVA showroom where they were quickly reassured that we’d do a good job.

A house survey was arranged and an initial proposal was issued within 1 week. Contracts were signed within 3 weeks. Design and planning were carried out and we were on site 5 weeks later.

Deep Retrofit

Retrofit works consisted of a combination of External Wall Insulation and Dry Lining, Attic Insulation, Windows & Doors, Heating and Ventilation. The final BER is a B2.

Finish

Penny took care of the interior design and with the client they selected a new kitchen, flooring, doors, stairs, fireplace, stove, and paint colours.  To finish off, our paving contractor Heneghan Paving constructed a new brick driveway. The finished house is exactly in line with the clients tastes – their house, their way.

The End Result

A comfortable, energy efficient house designed to suit our clients needs and tastes.
