Guy and his team have worked on two renovations for us and both have been hassle free thanks to their professionalism, consideration and can-do attitude. Genuinely helpful, adaptable in their work and very tidy! A real pleasure to deal with, we wouldn't use anyone else for our building work.

The 5-Step Renovation Process

Our design & build process

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation.

2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up.

3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made.

4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life.

5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your consultant to ensure that all Council and Code of Compliance documentation is completed. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!

What Lawrie Foster’s customers say about working with Refresh Renovations®

Frequently asked questions

Are there financing options available for large-scale home renovations?

Home renovation costs add up quickly, especially when you are working on your whole home. To help ease the entire house renovation cost, there are plenty of financing options available including bank loans and finance company loans. Refresh Renovations works closely with financial providers to give homeowners the best solutions for their unique home renovation needs. Learn more about how to finance your large-scale home renovation.

Can full home renovations increase the value of my home in New Zealand?

They most certainly can! When you choose to work with a home renovation design consultant like those at Refresh Renovations, you are opting for a process that helps save you time and money.

Modern design, new fixtures, functional layouts, and sleek finishes make a massive difference to potential homebuyers. Get in touch with a Renovation Consultant today to talk about adding value to your property.

Can my designer or contractor get the building permit for my project?

Are you wondering what home renovations require a permit? That all could depend on where you live and the extent of your renovation. Your Renovation Consultant will be able to acquire a building permit for your kitchen, bathroom, home extension, and more.

Do I need a building consent for a new bathroom?

In New Zealand, the need for a building consent for a new bathroom largely depends on the extent of the work involved and the specific regulations of the local council. Generally, if your bathroom renovation involves structural changes, plumbing alterations, or electrical work, it is likely that you will require a building consent. This is because these changes may affect the safety, durability, and compliance of the building. It is important to consult with your local council or a qualified professional, such as a building inspector or architect, who can provide accurate guidance based on the specific details of your project and the local regulations.

Your renovation consultant at Refresh can take care of these checks on your behalf during the Working Drawings and Costing stage of the process. They will be able to assess whether a building consent is required and guide you through the process to ensure compliance with New Zealand's building standards.

Do I need to hire a professional designer for my kitchen renovation?

Hiring a professional can help you better understand and plan for your renovation to prevent a budget blow-out. They can bring their expert opinion and provide drawings so that you can envision the renovation and make changes where necessary before any construction begins.

Do Renovation Consultants work with specific contractors or can I choose my own?

Working with a Renovation Consultant means you’ll have access to a trusted network of contractors and suppliers in your area. But if you have a contractor already in mind, bring them up with your Renovation Consultant and they can work with them as well.

What if there are unexpected issues uncovered during the entire home renovation?

There are a few fears and apprehensions when it comes to home renovations, and unexpected issues are one of them. Such issues could potentially delay your renovation or increase costs. However, working with a dedicated Renovation Consultant means that you have a project manager who will do all they can to stick close to your original timeline and allocate your budget accordingly.

You might also consider investing in a home renovation insurance policy that could protect you if unforeseen issues do arise.

What factors should I consider when planning a bathroom renovation?

If you’re thinking about renovating your bathroom, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What design style are you drawn to? (e.g. minimalist, modern, classic)
  • Have you considered a budget? Do you need to talk to a bank or mortgage broker about finance?
  • Have you checked your calendar for the most convenient time of year to renovate your bathroom?
  • If you have only one bathroom in your house, have you considered an alternative solution whilst the bathroom is undergoing the renovation?
  • How much space is there to work with, do you need to extend or is there sufficient space available to achieve what you are looking for?
  • How much storage is required?Having this information ready will make it that much easier to plan your bathroom remodelling project with our team.
