I engaged Renova to modernise my old, cold, and draughty house. When selecting a contractor, I was looking for a reliable and trustworthy builder and after consulting with a number of providers, I found that Renova’s services were best suited to my needs. From the onset, the Renova team were incredibly professional and guided me through the entire process from start to finish. The project was completed on budget and a week ahead of schedule.

Project details

This was the type of project that RENOVA was set up to carry out. Our brief was to modernise this house including layout changes, no extension. Our client had recently purchased this house with a view to modernising it. They had carry out their due diligence and explored their options to procure this renovation. We were pleased that they selected RENOVA. They were decisive decision makers and we had settled on a design and specification within just 3 and a half months of our very first engagement. We took a further 2 and a half months to carry out workshops, finalise all fittings and finishes and prepare construction drawings. The works on site took 16 weeks to complete. The finished house has an A3 BER rating. Our client lives in the equivalent of a ‘new build’ house but in a mature neighbourhood with all the benefits – the best of both worlds.
