Whether you're considering the time involved or the capital required, taking on a renovation is a significant investment. At Refresh, we want to relieve the pressures and provide homeowners with a stress-free and enjoyable experience. So much so, that we’ve made it our mission to change the way the world renovates.
To put homeowners first, we’ve centred our 5-step approach around them. From the initial consultation, a local Renovation Consultant will be there to guide you through the process. You don’t have to come to us with a well-thought-out plan; you’ll work alongside your Renovation Consultant to refine your design until it’s perfect. And, if you’re interested in a more hands-off approach, that works too.
Our streamlined channels of communication put you in direct contact with your Renovation Consultant who will remain your single point of contact during the renovation. There will be an experienced team of contractors and specialists working behind the scenes, but all communication will be funnelled through your Renovation Consultant. This helps your project to stay on time and within budget while keeping you abreast of all the important information without any insignificant details.
Since many North Sydney properties are high-density buildings, it’s common to see balconies, rooftops, and terraces as outdoor spaces to relax and unwind. Planter boxes are ideal to optimise compact layouts, artificial turf helps create low-maintenance urban landscapes, while outdoor bar set ups allow for entertainment without taking up the space of expansive outdoor dining tables.
Heading north to Hornsby, there’s a little more area to work with. Hornsby homeowners with a swimming pool may want to update their pool area. Resurfacing the surrounding patio, upgrading fencing, and creating adjacent splash-free seating zones are simple ways to give the hardscaping, and your backyard, a new look.
Whatever your project needs, Refresh is here to help. As part of our mission, we aim to make renovations as seamless as possible. This means we offer a comprehensive list of outdoor renovation building services to ensure you can get everything you need for your project in one place.
