While Manawatu offers one of the more affordable housing markets in New Zealand, its housing prices are rising at a rapid pace. This makes it an ideal time to either add to the value of your home or buy small and renovate. With a wide selection of rural properties to choose from, there are plenty of options when it comes to creating a renovation design that suits your lifestyle. Whatever your renovation plans, finding a Manawatu builder is key and Refresh exist to help you achieve this.

Why is Refresh Renovations the best option?

Refresh is a   renovation company which has provided over 1,000+ high-quality renovations across the globe. What sets them apart from the rest of the home renovation sector is their unique process which is designed to keep projects on budget and to a firm deadline.

The Refresh process ensures your entire renovation build will be carefully managed for you. A Refresh Manawatu building consultant will initially meet with you to discuss your ideas and assess the project area. Next, you will be provided with working drawings of your project, until a final design and fixed-quote are agreed upon. Your building consultant will be your one point of contact throughout the entire renovation, managing each stage with high attention to detail.

Will my renovation require council consent?

This will depend on what your project involves. If it’s a small kitchen remodel, consent may not be required. Larger projects most likely will require a resource consent and building consent. If your home is listed as a heritage building, that is; a building “associated with human activity before 1900”, then you will also need to apply for permission to make changes to it through Heritage New Zealand.

Your Refresh Manawatu builder can take care of any of these applications for you, as they work closely with the local council.

How much will my renovation or extension cost in Manawatu?

Renovation costs are the biggest consideration for most people. That’s why the Refresh process has been designed; to create projects around your budget.

No project is the same, so it’s best to check in with your Manawatu builder to get an accurate cost estimate. However, as a rough guide; expect to pay somewhere between $20,000 - $100,000+ for a kitchen renovation, $20,000 - $50,000+ for a bathroom renovation and $60,000 - $200,000+ for a same level house extension.
