It’s an exciting time to renovate your home in the Queenstown-Lakes and Central Otago districts. The economy is in overdrive across the region as permanent and visitor populations continue to grow, and the property markets are buoyant. A quality renovation can dramatically increase the value of your home, potentially boosting your sale price by much more than your investment. And if you’re not thinking of selling yet, you can enjoy that updated kitchen, bathroom, extension, indoor/outdoor living or open-plan reconfiguration that you’ve always dreamed of!
The unprecedented level of construction activity in our region brings its own set of challenges for homeowners. Trades people can afford to be fussy about the jobs they take on, and are price-setters rather than price-takers. Often the smaller renovation projects struggle to compete for priority, or end up costing much more than expected. Even worse, the level of competition for trades people means homeowners can end up lumbered with someone who is under-qualified, inexperienced, over-committed, unscrupulous, or who leaves a poorly-finished mess behind them and few options for redress.
Refresh Renovations in Queenstown-Lakes and Central Otago is here to help. We are a specialist home renovation building company that has the skills, experience and drive to deliver your renovation project on time and within budget. Director David Dolphin and his experienced team are totally committed to making your renovation experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
The Queenstown and Central Otago districts offer a wide variety of housing stock, reflecting the historic origins of the various settlements, and how they have grown in popularity and expanded over the years. Everything from historic cottages and former Ministry of Works houses to terraced townhouses and multi-million dollar standalone homes can be found in our region. Successfully renovating different styles of house requires versatility of vision, approach and solutions. That is what Refresh Renovations is here to provide.
We use only the best licensed building practitioners and qualified trades people who enjoy the unique nature of renovation projects and who care about delivering you an outcome you will love. Local knowledge is indispensable. Our network of sub-contractors includes businesses that are well-known across the region for their commitment to quality and customer service.
Refresh Renovations has completed more than 1,000 renovations across New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, with a reputation for quality, reliability and professionalism. Using our world-class stage gate process, Refresh can guide you through all the phases of your renovation, from concept design to completed project. With only a handful of exemptions, most structural building and plumbing work requires building consent, and some projects will also trigger a resource consent requirement. We can help you navigate tricky compliance areas such as these with the relevant local authorities.
Our systems include industry-leading project management tools that customers can access directly to track progress on their project. Our comprehensive insurance policies cover just about everything that could go wrong in a building project, so you never need to worry about where you stand if the worst should happen.
Is it going to cost you more to use a specialist home renovation builder like Refresh? No! The design-and-build service we offer can actually save you money – for example, by exposing project risks at an early stage, and by avoiding costly mistakes and delays – meaning that more of your money is spent on the project itself. We look forward to meeting you and helping you bring your renovation project to life.
