Home Renovation and Remodelling Specialists

After a long day of dealing with everything life can throw at you, crossing your home’s threshold should feel as if you’re entering your sanctuary space. If not, it may be time to make some changes. Being a homeowner in Aotearoa doesn’t come easily but at Refresh, we want to help make sure it’s rewarding. 
It’s no secret that older homes across New Zealand, be they character villas or heritage bungalows, come with a laundry list of problems: single glazed windows, poor insulation, and even hazardous issues such as asbestos. New builds tend to be constructed to higher standards than their predecessors; however, that can be paired with a lack of charm and personality. 
No matter what problems plague your homeownership journey, we’re here to turn it around and create the home of your dreams. Whether that means creating an open-plan layout during a 70s brick house renovation or embedding your style into every corner of a more modern construction, we’ll get the job done with our expert Renovation Consultants leading the way. 

How does Refresh help?

Having completed thousands of successful renovations, we know what it takes. Clear communication and thorough planning are at the core of our proven 5-step process. We know that to deliver large full house renovations on time and within budget, organisation is essential. Our Renovation Consultants utilise each of the five steps — briefing, concepting, costing, building, and delivery — to facilitate a stress-free and enjoyable experience for homeowners.
Homeowners can feel confident of a successful outcome, knowing a skilled Renovation Consultant is guiding their project. From start to finish, a Refresh Consultant will act as the single point of contact, bridging the gap between homeowners and contractors, keeping everyone on the same page to deliver a fantastic full house renovation on time and within budget.

A smoother renovation journey

Our 5-step process was designed to ensure that all Refresh projects, even large-scale full house transformations, are delivered on time and within budget.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

Whether you’re full of ideas or lacking inspiration, this is a chance for you to get on the same page with your Renovation Consultant. You’ll discuss your goals, budget, and ideal timeline at this early stage in the process to make it easier to manage expectations for your project. Taking on a full house renovation is an exciting opportunity that needs a solid foundation to be successful, so tell us everything! From two extra bedrooms to bronze doorknobs, no idea is too big or small during the initial consultation.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

Now that you’ve discussed the big picture, your Renovation Consultant will arrange for concept designs to be drawn up to determine the feasibility of your project. These drawings allow you to see your ideas take shape and see what’s achievable. There’s still a lot of flexibility in this phase; maybe you’ll find wiggle room within your budget here to upgrade to luxury marble floors, or you may discover some things aren’t worth having.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, your concept drawings will be developed into working drawings, in which technical details such as architectural, structural, and other practical considerations will be addressed. While you’re always in control of your renovation, this is the last planning step before building begins, so it’s the most cost-effective time to make any final alterations. Your Renovation Consultant will work closely with you to ensure you’re confident in the plans. To close out this phase, they’ll provide you with a fixed quote so you know the entire house renovation cost before getting started.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

When building begins, you can finally see your dream take shape. The excellent support provided by your Renovation Consultant will continue through this phase as they coordinate trusted contractors and talented craftspeople, and source premium materials from preferred suppliers. They’ll also monitor the construction closely to ensure your project is delivered on time, within budget, and with limited disruptions so you can enjoy the fruits of a stress-free renovation.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final step before your Renovation Consultant officially hands over your transformed home is to ensure that all of the necessary documentation is in order. A Code of Compliance certificate deems your project compliant with any local building or council regulations. Once you have that, your full house renovation is complete!

Why should I use a Renovation Consultant?

Working with a professional will alleviate much of the stress that comes with a renovation. There’s a lot to manage, from logistics like permits to the limitations that come along with renovating within an apartment building. Having an apartment specialist navigate these difficulties for you is invaluable.

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 services do Renovation Consultants offer?

These experts can help you brainstorm ideas for your renovation, build your budget plan, source the best contractors for the job, and take care of all council permits and paperwork required. They serve as project managers who oversee the entire renovation and keep open lines of communication with you along the way.

How can I ensure the renovation stays within budget?

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 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.

What are the potential challenges you foresee with a full home renovation project?

Some challenges in a full renovation project often appear when renovating the kitchen. This has to do with factors such as layout changes, expanding the square footage of your space, re-routing ventilation, and more. At Refresh Renovations, our consultants have access to a trusted network of complete home renovation contractors to work on every part of your house.

Another tricky part of home renovation can often be navigating permits and regulations. Lucky for you, our Renovation Consultants handle all of the paperwork for you to ensure your home is code compliant.

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.

Will I be able to live in my home during the complete home renovation?

At Refresh, our Renovation Consultants work to make sure your renovation involves minimal interference with your daily life. However, with a full home renovation you can expect a lot more going on in your house that might require you to find another place to stay during the renovation.

Your Renovation Consultant will be transparent about a timeline and will work to get you back into your home as soon as possible. After all, the benefits from a complete home renovation make the process worth it!

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.

What is your main reason for wanting a full home renovation?

There are a number of things to consider when renovating a house, and this question is one of them. It’s important to consider your main reasons for wanting to renovate in the first place. It could be to enhance your lifestyle or to prepare your home for a competitive price on the market.

Learn our five key considerations when renovating an older home in Waikato (though these points could apply to any home in New Zealand!). When you’re ready to call on a home renovation planner to make your vision come to life, get in touch with the team at Refresh Renovations.

Do you need a council permit for home renovation alterations in New Zealand?

Many home renovations do require council approval. But not to worry - your Renovation Consultant is responsible for obtaining any necessary approvals to make sure your home renovation alterations comply with the local codes.

Learn more about the process of navigating permits and regulations for your next renovation.

How much should you spend on full house renovation?

This answer is entirely up to you. Sometimes, the more you spend on quality work will have a positive impact on your home’s resale value. But that doesn’t mean you need to break the bank!

The experts at Refresh Renovations are here to consult with you on your ideal budget. They can inform you of the best areas in which to allocate your funds throughout your renovation. Before you start renovating, sign up online to download our free, intuitive Renovation Checklist and Guide to help you navigate the first steps of planning a renovation.

How long does house renovation take?

The timeline for your home renovation depends largely on the amount of work that needs to be done and the availability of materials. Successful home improvement projects require ample planning, which adds a bit of time to the process but pays dividends down the road.

In terms of timeline by room, kitchens and bathrooms often take longer to renovate due to the extra plumbing and electrical requirements. Get in touch with a home renovation consultant at Refresh to talk about a time frame for your next home reno.

How much would a full house renovation cost?

Several factors such as project size, scope, and choice of materials can influence your complete home renovation cost. After all, an entire house renovation requires the involvement of several different trades to renovate your kitchen, bathrooms, living areas, outdoor areas, and more. 

Costs will also depend on the kinds of changes you wish to see in your home. These changes may be merely superficial, or they could be more involved when it comes to changing entire layouts. Get in touch with a local Renovation Consultant to get an idea of how much it would cost to renovate your home.
