Houses in Auckland are expensive. More Auckland homeowners are choosing to renovate or extend their homes, rather than move, because they feel trapped by the crazy property market and a lack of affordable ‘right type’ of homes.
With our years of building experience and renovation expertise, we can help you explore some of the many creative and possibly unexpected options in front of you. View our renovation considerations.
Sometimes all it takes is to knock down a wall.
Consider opening up rooms to make larger living areas: join the kitchen and dining room, convert that little-used ‘sitting room’ into a larger more useful living space or make two smaller bedrooms that never get used into one large sunny living area.
Done properly by licenced, experienced renovations experts like ourselves, a well-thought-out extension is always welcome and, in most cases, will bring a return greater than the amount spent.
We can get you organised by building customised storage areas.
Where possible, an extension should improve the access to the outside and capture light as much as possible. If designed well, a good renovation will give you a bright, comfortable space to live in that stays warm and dry the whole year around, making it healthy and efficient.
Upgrade the insulation of your house and you will get pay-back in terms of reduced heating costs. This also applies to windows. Windows are the most expensive part of the walls and they let most of the energy out. Replacing, double-glazing and ensuring windows are sealed properly is a great long-term investment in your comfort.
The skills and processes needed for renovations are quite different from building a new home. The process begins with a consultation. We work with clients and look at the various ways they can develop their existing property; to make the most from their home and their investment.
