We have always have confidence in Refresh because once a project is accepted they accompany the tradesman on the first visit, visit the site at intervals as the work progresses and visit again with the appropriate tradesman to sign off the work, ensuring at all stages that we are 100% satisfied.

I worked with Refresh from the planning stages through to the completed project. They were professional and easy to work with through all the ups and downs of project this size. I am so happy and impressed with the finished build that I recommend them for your project. Thank you to the team at Refresh.

We are delighted with our renovation project. We now have a lovely new kitchen, an open living area and a beautiful bathroom. Sophia and Mike, from Havelock North, guided us with great ideas and paid close attention to every detail of the renovation. They liaised with quality companies and tradesmen who in turn, produced an excellent result for us. The inevitable challenges were quickly dealt with. We found them to be always accessible, quick to respond and communication between all parties was clear and timely. We would definitely recommend them and, in fact, we have booked another job with them for next year.

Your rapid response to my initial email was impressive. High level of communication and appointment that was arranged was kept. I'm a very punctual person and i guess tend to view people who are late to appointments as representative of the service-casting a shadow over what they are trying to sell. The person who came was right on time. Great start. And she was a wonderful communicator too.

Mike and Sophia are very friendly, helpful and supportive. They are very knowledgeable of the construction industry and went beyond what was expected of them during the Napier floods in November 2020.

I found Sophie incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I liked the Refresh approach. There system was explained to me which I found really good because there were no hidden costs down the line.

Mandy Spence

I would never have been able to have the results for my project without Refresh Renovations, who provided the coordination & peace of mind that I was in need of. With so many horror stories from friends who've undertaken home building or reno work, it's hard to know who to choose, especially when the decision so significant and hard to change once you're committed. Of course, I didn't know David or Refresh either, however from our first meeting, it was clear that the structure they would work through is what I required and I was very comfortable from the get-go that I could trust their work. Communication & follow-up was great throughout, and everyone has been raving about the end result (new kitchen & bathroom). Hoping to be able to use David again in the near future on other projects.

A lot of the Tradies and other Companies in Palmerston North looked and acted like escaped convicts wanting a quick buck with little care about how the house will be in 10 - 15 years time. Refresh were very professional about the entire process even whilst going through the Lockdowns we had as well as working in with my partner and I as we work from home. I'm not familiar with the rest of your Company around NZ, but in Palmy, I would recommend Wayne and Sarah to anyone. 

Taylor Jacobs

I was given a fresh look at our home through the eyes of a Refresh consultant. She not only gave me her recommendations for immediate ways to take the house forward now, cost effectively, she also suggested a modification for the bathroom upstairs, should I get less mobile. Her visit has made us feel enthusiastic to get on and put her recommendations into effect soon. We have already written to seek quotes from recommended providers.

We owned a classic Auckland villa in Onehunga which required the usual renovation requirements of an aging villa. These included full house re-piling, exterior and window rot repair and paint (including new timber joinery), roof repair and paint, interior painting and tiling, and some plumbing work. Dominic at Refresh initially led us through the design and council consenting process for the re-piling work. Following this, Dominic and his team undertook all the renovation works mentioned above, dealing with all the subcontractors without us having to get involved. Renovations can be stressful (especially through COVID), and there were issues which popped up, however these were communicated and resolved satisfactorily. Dominic took care of all the council documentation, inspections as well as the final CCC. Overall we are really pleased with the results and glad we engaged Dominic at Refresh to help us through the process. We would definitely recommend Dominic and his team.
