What sets Refresh apart?

Our mission is to provide our expertise to create your dream home on time, within your budget, and to exceed your expectations. The second step of the Refresh Process is the Concept & Feasibility stage, where your initial ideas are translated into visual concepts and rough costings so your Renovation Consultant can assess the feasibility of what you would like to build. We'll analyse your project to identify risks or constraints and explore ideas for different ways to meet your brief and budget range.

“We have always had 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.”

“We continue to enjoy the renovations and will gladly use this team for any future building work.”
