“John and Alan transformed a drab, dated house into a modern, bright, high-spec home, all within budget and on time. From the first, exploratory meeting right through to the completion of the Deep Retrofit project, the team at RENOVA were terrific to deal with. Their enthusiasm and positive approach made the project a wholly enjoyable experience.”

On this project, our client’s priority was to improve comfort and energy-efficiency.

Deep Retrofit

The walls and roof were highly insulated, with membranes and tapes being used to secure airtightness. The walls were dry-lined using a combination of ‘spray foam’ by Insulation Plus and insulated plasterboard slabs.  A-rated triple glazed windows with a U-value of 0.8. by Grady Joinery were installed along with a new heating system.

The internal layout was modernised by removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create a modern open plan kitchen/diner.


The finish included: a new kitchen by Nolan Kitchens; Balterio flooring;  new doors; and a wood-burning ‘Scan’ stove by Fenton Fires. The finish also included a new bathroom, wardrobes, carpets, paintings and blinds.

The End Result

Through Deep Retrofit, this newly renovated home is now effectively a new house within an original house. It has been transformed from a cold, dark, dreary, badly-designed house into a modern, comfortable, cosy and energy-efficient home.
