Reclad for value and add improvements for a great lifestyle

Project Brief

Shari and Dominic’s home was lacking value due to poor cladding when they first bought the property. We met with them to discuss options to upgrade the exterior of their home, and after thoughtful discussion they were more than happy with our offer to restore value by replacing the current plaster cladding with new Linea Weatherboards. Not only does this improve the liveability and health of their family, but recladding their home also gave the exterior an instantly brand new aesthetic look. After noticing the great improvement of their home, Shari and Dominic decided to take the plunge to remodel two bathrooms and include a beautiful new ensuite for optimum luxury. We also helped them fully upgrade their kitchen to cater to their needs of casual dining and family interactivity. To further improve the health and wellbeing of their family, they decided to go the full mile and double glaze all windows to assist with temperature stabilisation over changing seasons, we believe this was a great decision that they will be thankful for in years to come. The final addition was a pristine glass balustrade on their balcony. The home overlooks a beautiful view across the North Shore from a high vantage point, so it would be a shame to cover it up with a tall wooden balcony. Instead they went with a sturdy, safe glass option to provide the ultimate flow between indoor and outdoor living. Congratulations Shari and Dominic for having faith in us to create the home of your dreams, we look forward to beginning work on your rental property too!

  • Met Shari and Dominic’s design requirements.
  • Replaced old plaster cladding with nice new Linea Weatherboard.
  • Upgraded and fully remodelled two bathrooms, including a luxurious ensuite and a spacious family bathroom.
  • Upgraded the kitchen for improved casual dining and family interaction.
  • Installed a shiny new glass balustrade for unobstructed views.
  • Double glazed all windows in the home to provide more warmth in winter and cool down the house in summer.

Client Feedback:

After an initial meeting and going over our situation, RenoBuilders arranged an architectural designer to draw up plans, then supplied us with a comprehensive quote. RenoBuilders gave us the feeling that we were in extremely competent hands. We found RenoBuilders to be very accommodating and flexible of our needs, making the reclad of our home a less stressful task than it could’ve been.We found the workmanship to be at the highest possible level and are very happy with the outcome, so happy that we have in fact used RenoBuilders for another building job at a rental property we own.

Project Brief:

Joanne and Colin needed more space through renovation for their growing young family. They had some sensible renovation ideas for an addition to their home to create a new master suite; including masterbedroom, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. Joanne cleverly created more kitchen space by relocating the laundry too. With the addition of a great new renovated deck Joanne and Colin have created great flow of interior and exterior dining from the kitchen. Joanne selected some fabulous bathroom fittings to add a touch of luxury. Joanne and Colin found the perfect balance of participation in the project and trusting us to get things done for them. Many thanks from Reno Builders to Joanne and Colin for selecting us to work with you.

Client Feedback:

Right from the moment Hayden walked through our front door, I could sense he knew what he was doing. I thought I would go crazy with the mess while the extension was going on. In fact it was quite the opposite, I find my fortnightly grocery shop way more stressful. Hayden was very responsive, I could send him a text or email and he would reply the same day, if not within minutes of me contacting him. He kept us very involved in what was going on and made sure to give us updates as to the progress of the build. His team were absolutely amazing. Cannot find a single issue to fault them on, polite, courteous, showed up every morning right on schedule.

Sally and Jason wanted to upgrade their ensuite bathroom. The result looks great because of the excellent design and materials choices that Sally and Jason made. The new bathroom design was in keeping with the style of the house while also having a polished modern finish.
A great result for this home and the lovely family that live here.

  • Keep the family & possessions safe while they live on-site
  • Employ reputable people to be in our home and to complete quality job
  • Upgrade the bathroom and repair any damage to this much loved and well used room
  • Manage all of the trades required

Client Feedback:

Like a lot of clients when we made the decision to finally upgrade our tired bathroom and ensuite but just didn’t know what or where to start.  Hayden from Reno Builders was able to make subtle suggestions to us that would provide a contemporary and modern look in a character bungalow home.  Hayden was able to understand what we hoped to achieve and then broke it down into manageable pieces for us.
The result is simply stunning.  From managing the subtrades to organising program and delivery of items the transition was seamless.  We couldn’t be happier.

Client Feedback:

We can recommend Reno Builders without reservation. Our house was damaged during a landslip and civil work had to be carried out before the house could be fixed.  Living in a damaged house for almost two years was extremely difficult for our family and we consider ourselves lucky that we came across Reno Builders
Right from the start Reno Builders listened to and responded honestly to our requests. They provided us with an accurate and detailed quote and time line and never made promises which they couldn’t keep. We lived in the house while renovations were underway and in spite of this, the team was a pleasure to have around. They were always considerate and we never felt as if they invaded our privacy.
The excavation and building work was carried out to a high standard. Hayden communicated very well and provided us with regular progress reports.  In spite of the renovation being carried out through a wet winter it was completed within a few days of the estimated time line.
Reno Builders team did an excellent job and supported us through the CCC process right up to the final inspection. We are very happy with our beautiful home and if you are considering a renovation, you are welcome to come over to our place and see what Reno Builders have accomplished here

Client Feedback:

Before dealing with Hayden Searle we had quotes from other builders but none provided us with the same level of professionalism and assurance.

We chose Hayden because he was well organised, always professional and reliable. He demonstrated knowledge and experience which was critical when we were investing such a large amount of money in our home.

We were really impressed with the quality of work in our renovations. Hayden listed to us and interpreted everything we asked for.

The renovation ran to schedule and we were kept fully informed and involved through weekly site meetings.

Hayden provided guidance and recommendations based on his experience and knowledge of current products and our spaces which we appreciated.

Project Brief:
Russ gave us a brief to upgrade his family home on the North Shore. We gave his home a thorough inspection and assessed every feature which required updating to ensure the maximum potential was achieved and to increase the liveability for his family. The 70s home was outdated and needed a spruce up, so the Reno Builders team got to work on replacing wall linings, ceilings, exterior cladding, indoor features such as the kitchen and bathroom, and much more. We want to congratulate Russ for taking such a big and valuable step in securing the longevity of their home, the results look great!

  • Repair exterior cladding

Client Feedback:

Hayden Searle was among half a dozen builders we contacted in relation to renovations at 74 Queen St, Northcote. The house we built there in 1978 was looking out of date, tired and in need of some attention. After visiting the site and reviewing our brief mission statement, Hayden put together a program of repair and renovation, priced the project and provided concise descriptions of the work involved. The work was extensive requiring new kitchen, bathrooms, replacement of every door and window, roof repairs, rewiring, painting inside and out and a good quantity of general repair work. Hayden was a fairly easy choice to make given the quality of the pre contract effort they made to assess the project. Weekly updates were provided with set payments on an agreed contract price and scope of work. Any additional or contingent items were discussed and agreed as the work proceeded. Good effort was made to condense the time taken to complete the project. In terms of renovating and modernizing our home the final product exceeded our expectations. We have no hesitation in recommending Hayden and his team for similar work.

We were given a brief to prepare our Remuera based client’s home to go on the market. Our mission at Reno Builders is to increase the value of people homes and this is what we were able to achieve with this project. The job needed to be done fast, which the Reno builders achieved, with impeccable attention to detail. This was a great decision made by the client and we’re glad to hear they had a successful sale following the renovation.

  • Manage council compliance and regulations
  • Maximise value of home
  • Get the job done quickly
  • Respect the neighbours
  • Combine new and old features seamlessly
  • Provide excellent contact as client is based overseas

Client Feedback:

We were preparing our Remuera home for sale. There were a lot of unfinished details that were required to be finished for both council compliance and for maximising the value of the home. Hayden & his RenoBuilders team stepped in and professionally completed all of the work required. They worked efficiently and to a very high standard. RenoBuilders team respected the house and our neighbours too. One of key requirements for us was that we were dealing with renovation specialists. Combining new and old homes requires an art to make everything appear as one. I had one point of contact and things happened smoothly even though I am based overseas. Many thanks to Hayden and Reno Builders.

Project Brief:
There’s nothing quite like a hot shower to wake you up in the morning and lull you to sleep at night. When we heard Anna and her family had been living with a weak shower, we offered our expert assistance, and the rest is history. Now the Gao family enjoy lovely hot showers in their brand new bathroom. While we were at it, we fixed up the floors by uncovering the wood and giving it a polish. We also installed a new window to improve airflow and light. Anna was happy with the results and so were we.

  • Renovate bathroom
  • Replace window joinery
  • Repair damage caused by water leakage
  • Strengthen floor
  • Install new shower and other bathroom fittings
  • Install gas water heater
  • Remove the old fireplace
  • Upgrade flooring

Client Feedback:

Our family has been using a tiny space, low pressure shower and decided to upgrade to a better one. We are very happy that we contacted Hayden after we tried contacting several other companies without any further replies.

He quickly arranged a time to come to investigate the project and provided the quote in the next few days. From the starting to the finishing of the renovation, Hayden came to the site often to make sure everything went right. He responded promptly to our enquiries and alterations and provided practical advice helping us on decision making.

Hayden’s team are friendly and experienced – always on time and do the job to a very high standard. The trade people he is using are very skilful. Our renovation experience was stress-free and very satisfying.

I can recommend Hayden and his team because:

Prompt response to client’s first enquiry
Approachable, open communications between project manager and client
Team carries a diligent and responsible working attitude – client no need to worry about the quality of their work.
