Renovations are a lot like new homes in some regards as we always strive for the perfect finish. For this to happen we require good information and communication with the project manager. Renovations often have the homeowner acting as a project manager in an effort to save money. We realise that project managing may not be in a lot of people’s experience or skill set…so we give further advice based on our experiences to assist in a good outcome.
Renovation projects can vary in size from just putting in a vanity next to existing toilet or a total refit of the bathroom. Some work will require a council permit and some will not. We are happy to help define this when at your property.
There are certain products like toilets that are designed to be retrofitted with a minimum of pipework alterations, making a lower cost Installation. Then there are others that will involve removing wall linings and redecoration due to the pipework measurements and layout.
What often gets overlooked on a renovation build is how many showers or sinks may possibly be used at one time. On older homes it is common for a 15mm galvanised pipe water main to be currently installed from times when people had different expectations of their system. In contrast for a 25mm water main and 20mm cold mainline in a new home will barely service a busy 2 bathroom new home. The mains and the cold water into the property will need to be a larger diameter for homes with 3 or more bathrooms. We work this out with calculations so that fluctuating water pressures and temperatures do not happen when more than three fixtures or showers are in use and somebody turns on the sink to fill the kettle. That is our aim for your renovations to offer advice based on experience to improve your home’s services.
What we also offer is extremely good pricing on fixture items such as showers baths and tapware etc, as once the project is confirmed with us will issue a purchase order to you for use of our account to pass on the savings possible. We offer this as anact of good faith and will also assist with product choice to ensure a good quality product is chosen. There are many unrepeatable products on the market these days.
Similarly, with building contractors and other trades, not all are considered equal. We have compiled a list of contractors that are willing to assist with your smaller job or renovation. We have worked with them frequently and can say they are top blokes that do a top job. Will grow the list as we progress…
