“RENOVA helped me to transform the ground floor of my home from a draughty, dark, badly laid out space into a bright, warm, comfortable living space. The attention to detail, professionalism and courtesy that I experienced in my dealings with John and all the trades personnel that worked on my home leaves me with no hesitation in recommending RENOVA, or working with them again in the future.”

PROJECT DETAILS

This dark and draughty house needed a complete overhaul. As a result of a previous rear extension, it felt gloomy and disjointed inside.

Deep Retrofit

Construction works carried out during the deep retrofit included dry-lining, rewiring, roof insulation and a heating system upgrade. A wood-burning Stovax stove by Fenton Fires was installed. During the course of the Deep Retrofit, RENOVA discovered that the existing sunroom was structurally unsound. RENOVA had their engineer carry out a structural inspection. To solve the problem, steel columns and tie beams were installed. These carried the weight of the roof down onto the foundations.

Finish

The house was finished to a very high standard, which included patterned tiling, triple glazing throughout by Grady Joinery, a new kitchen by Nolan Kitchens and new timber flooring by Balterio. The works included painting and decorating, and interior design.

The End Result

This project is a great example of how RENOVA took a regular house, which was dark and draughty, and turned it into a comfortable, warm and energy-efficient home, all with a design finish to suit the owner’s taste and budget. Including the additional engineering works, the total duration on site was 7 weeks.
