We cannot begin to say how happy we are with our experience with RENOVA. First and foremost, thank you! Really, from the bottom of our hearts. This is our dream home. We feel entirely blessed that not only do we have this gorgeous home, but the whole process from beginning to end was smooth, even though the project suffered some minor delays due to external factors arising from Covid-19.

The house has been in the family since the 1930s and we needed to bring it back to life. It has been a wonderful family home for many years, but we needed to inject some TLC.

When we were researching for this project, we wanted to find a partner who understood what we wanted to do, but also to share due care and attention to make it a home suitable for modern living. The one-stop shop approach from RENOVA was very appealing to us.

From the initial discussions, RENOVA offered genuine assurances to us and understood our needs. A welcoming meeting with John, Siân, Paul, Barbara and Anthony was encouraging, as it showed us a sign of their genuine care towards the client.  All the lads on site were always professional and courteous to us. The site managers either Fiachra or Richard were very responsive and answered any questions from us promptly. The finished version shows how talented the tradesmen are. Their craftwork has received many compliments from all our family and friends. The vision from the design to completeness has been fantastic when it all came together. Our space has been completely transformed and maximised to get the full potential from it. The attention to detail was thorough and the communication to us was well explained throughout the process.

We agreed the design, and colour schemes at the workshops which RENOVA facilitated, including visits to showrooms. This was coordinated with all the other partners, and they too made the process as easy as possible while maintaining the high standards that we experienced with the initial discussion with RENOVA.

RENOVA’s management of the project on our behalf was excellent which took away any stresses and worries. We would strongly recommend RENOVA to anyone looking to renovate their home. You will be 100% satisfied with your decision!  Our final word is Amazing!

Project Details

This was one of these lovely jobs, working on an old family for the next generation. Our client on this project had grown up in this house and was now moving back in. She loved the location and the neighbours, and she was fond of the house. But the house was old and dated. What she wanted was a modern  version of her old house. Not only did she need it insulated etc etc, but she needed the layout changed to suit her lifestyle. We completely gutter the house as we always do and we demolished the old extensions at the rear of the house. These were re-built and the layout of the house was changed completely. The building fabric was modernised and we installed all modern utilities. The finished product is familiar to our client, but completely different at the same time. Handover was great fun because our client hadn’t visit site at all during the works. She was overwhelmed.
