“I met John Martin at an Ideal Homes exhibition in 2015.  At the time we were looking to renovate an old apartment in order to sell it on.  Renova changed the layout, put in a new heating system, kitchen, bathrooms, flooring and complete redecoration.  The work was completed on time and on budget.

We were so impressed with Renova that when we were contemplating moving ourselves, we asked John to view the apartment with us.  He gave us confidence that we would be able to make a very dated space into the home we wanted.  The apartment was gutted and the space rearranged.  Extra insulation and a new heating system was added.   A new kitchen, bathrooms, wardrobes and fitted storage was added.  New floors were laid, and the place was completely redecorated.

Renova’s experience added greatly to the design of our apartment and we are very grateful for their persistence in making sure some of our ideas could be achieved.

This was not an easy build.  All rubble, equipment and new supplies had to be carried up and down three flights of stairs.  We found everyone on the build professional, thoughtful and good humoured throughout.

We are now well settled in our ‘new home’, and every time we turn the key in the door we know we made the right decision in moving and engaging Renova.”


This was the second apartment we renovated for the same client. They had just bought this apartment which had not been updated since it was first built and had been rented out. The wanted to change it from a ‘rental’ to a proper ‘home’. The apartment needed to be to fit their needs, be to their style and it needed to be comfortable.

The apartment was large at 200m2 and was unusual because it was laid out over two floors. To manage costs we concentrated the bulk of the retrofit works on the ground floor which included the master bedroom. The ground floor received a RENOVA Deep Retrofit level of work with the exception of the windows which we were not permitted to replace. The first floor received a more cosmetic renovation.

As usual this home is comfortable and efficient. It is also to our clients taste and the layout suits their needs.
