Renovation can achieve wonderful results, and can also include valuable repair and restoration works as part of the overall project. Well designed renovations can effectively reinvent a home, creating options for features and amenities, as well as adding value to the residence.

All types of renovation need careful thought and planning. The best results are achieved through consultation and consideration of available options. This process ensures both practical and conceptual issues are fully addressed. The consultation approach also often brings down renovation costs, by analyzing possibilities and getting professional inputs into costs of materials and works.

Renovations can be complex, particularly for older or larger homes which may have structural requirements or site issues affecting them. Some forms of renovation work also require council approvals and consideration of heritage requirements.

Bourne Builders has a range of examples of renovation jobs for notably different types of homes. Our work in this field includes large houses, and some extensive heritage work which illustrates clearly what can be achieved through renovation and good design.
