Excellent - the business showed up on time, all the trades that they organised showed up right on time. I've had a lot of building work completed in the past and my experience with Renomate was very impressive!

Renomate built a loft with ample storage, however the extra unexpected jobs amazed me way too much! The sagging floor level was meticulously adjusted, leaning walls were dealt with, and even when I added to the brief, Renomate happily completed a second loft and even window box seating with stora... Renomate built a loft with ample storage, however the extra unexpected jobs amazed me way too much! The sagging floor level was meticulously adjusted, leaning walls were dealt with, and even when I added to the brief, Renomate happily completed a second loft and even window box seating with storage. This was followed up with plumbing work to accommodate the new washing machine, and even new power points for convenience. All work was completed in the initial time frame of one week, and the cleanup service made moving in easy. If you require a genuine tradesman who always starts on time, provides suggestions and improvements, and just works non-stop, then don't hesitate to contact Renomate.

Greg was very prompt in doing my gyprock repair. Despite it being a small job he was able to fit it in to his schedule and was very professional. Price was excellent and he was able to give me a guaranteed quote over the phone. I would highly recommend and would use Renomate again.

With a set budget in mind, Renomate designed the work area incorporating floor to ceiling shelving, new linigns to walls and ceilings, LED lighting, new external colonial windows and to finsih off....a solid door. The client has never been more happier since he can now offer a more comfortable setting to his personal clients.
