We have greatly enjoyed partnering with Renova on achieving our dream home. Every highly skilled and professional member of the Renova team has been a pleasure to interact with. At every stage, they have gone above and beyond our expectations from design to implementation. They guided the process of our deep retrofit with thoughtful suggestions and professional advice throughout, without impinging on our personal goals for how we wanted our home to work for us. In addition to dealing directly with their own in-house team of experienced professionals, they recommended a selection of quality kitchen, bathroom and lighting suppliers, thereby ensuring we received great workmanship while giving us the flexibility to choose the personalities we wanted to work alongside. They saved us time and money by carefully coordinating each phase of the process so that we never had to follow up with individual contractors or see the house sit idle waiting for material, completing the process within our budget and weeks ahead of schedule. Overall, it has been a great experience and one we would strongly recommend to anyone interested in a home remodel they can really be proud of.

Project Details

Our clients had recently purchased this house. The previous owner had installed external wall insulation and had insulated the attic. But, the windows had not been replaced and internally everything was old, including the layout. We didn’t need to insulate the walls or roof but we did need to carry out all of the other usual RENOVA retrofit and renovation works including windows, heating, plumbing and electrics. Two COVID lockdowns slowed up our stages 1 to 5, but when we finally got to start we were fortunate enough not to have to close again and we handed over on programme and with no nasty surprises along the way. Our clients completed the works that the previous owner had started and now this house is efficient and comfortable as a new house.
