Swainston Road St Johns

The Project

To give this run down St Johns rental a serious facelift with plenty of attention to detail.

The challenge

With the owner overseas, we worked remotely using Skype, phone calls and emails to ensure transparent communication from start to finish. With plenty of ideas on the list, our client was about to blow his budget, so we needed to be clear on what could and couldn’t be done.

End result

The client made a conscious decision to increase the budget once he knew the scope. We built a new deck, kitchen and bathroom, flooring, painted the interior, put in a back and front door, installed an air conditioning unit, bedroom heater and made sure the entire property complied with the latest regulations as a healthy home standard. “The result is outstanding and we’re really happy with it!” Watch this video to hear more from this happy client.

Russ, Jen and the entire crew were an absolute pleasure to work with! They came into a flood damaged home, with half walls missing and have worked alongside us to create a modern and upgraded home to our dreams! As our first time renovating they really have made it easy for us to renovate in the future and we even picked up some new skills along the way from the team! Big shout out to Tony, Jordy, Ben and Finn for the hard work to the house and even being super respectful while I was doing overnights! Can't thank them enough and so happy to have our home back after over a year!

“The team at Licensed Renovations were great to deal with. Their brief was to manage the renovation of our existing bathroom and addition of a new en suite. We are delighted with the end result, they managed the entire process and communicated well throughout the build. Will definitely use them again.”

“I just wanted to say before the house is completed how happy I am with the workmanship and quality of the renovation! My wife and I are really impressed and glad we chose you guys. I had a good look around yesterday and please tell all your tradies they have done a first class job. The plumbing, electrical work and painting are first class. And your advice on colours and floorings was spot on. Lastly my wife and I are going to sell the house and we’re looking forward to getting a good price. Please thank the team for a great job.”
