This sounds too good to be true, but The Renovation Team are all of the above!
I have recently bought my first home, on my own, hence I had to go for a ran down unit to be able to afford it.
James and the Renovation team have made the horror looking scene look like a catalogue picture!
Not only it looked modern and stylish, it looked spacious and practical.
I could not express my gratitude enough!
The job was executed perfectly, it was within the budget and advised time frame. James and the team are the only reason I was able to move in my home before the lockdown.
I was kept up to date with the progress and consulted on every step of the way, the team has helped even on things that were not part of their job.
For someone who knows little to none about DIY, it was stress-free, but engaging enough for me to be feel I have contributed and was in charge of the planning and decision making.
The Renovation team have been a fairy-godmother to me in making my dream first home!

Thank you James and the team for the fantastic, high quality job you completed on our renovation. Highly recommend!
James completed a full renovation of four units as one project. The quality is very high, communication great, and we are very, very happy with the work and project. Our unit looks transformed, it is warm, bright and our renter is very happy with their family accommodation. If anyone is looking for a project manager who can take care of everything from start to finish.. James is you man! Ngā mihi James and the team.
Andrew Simich
James you did such a incredible and professional job for us and we are grateful for all of your advice. Thanks for also helping provide such practical solutions to some of the challenges we faced along the way. We look forward to doing our next project with you.
Kelly Scott
As a newbie at renovations, it was invaluable to use The Renovation Team for our first investment property. To know that everything was being taken care of, in a tried and true manner meant less stress. All of the unforseen issues were just non-issues. 
Even though our renovation was over the Christmas close down, the project was completed on time. The quality was so high, if we could have moved in ourselves, we would have done!
Out customers reviews and feedback makes us go to work with a smile every day.
