James and karen - surrey renovation consultants

Refresh Renovations Surrey-Hampshire transforms homes across the region with a wide variety of renovation, refurbishment and extension services enacting the likes of kitchen and bathroom re-modelling, extension building and room conversions. The team is headed by James Teague and his project manager partner, Karen Blackburn.

Home Renovations in Surrey and Hampshire

James’ background perhaps isn’t typical for a renovations expert, as professionally he spent over 30 years working as a sign maker. A career he embarked upon straight from school, he worked his way up through a local sign company and since then has flourished to work on hundreds of projects and with a wide variety of materials. Of course, such roles have seen him work heavily with a myriad of stakeholders – which places him well to deal with varying homeowners and property projects. Indeed sign making projects are not always as straightforward as many may assume, as lots of third parties and subcontractors are involved. This is also the case with lots of property renovations; changing situations and ever-developing events that all need to be managed efficiently! James has worked all over the country as a sign maker and has been involved with plenty of recognisable household names. He works to the mantra that customers should never have to chase for information and so strives to keep all involved parties up-to-date at all times and communicating clearly.

Project Managed Home Renovations in Surrey

James works collaboratively with his partner Karen Blackburn, and she’s certainly well-placed to work with our approach, given that she has 10+ years’ experience as an IT Project Manager. It’s this experience of working on projects, systems and set processes that ensures she’s the comprehensive eye for detail that every renovation needs; managing all involved parties and weathering the unexpected along the way. This combined with a truly customer-centric attitude ensures that amazing house transformations are delivered on time, to budget and to (if not over and above) expectations.
Away from the workplace, Karen is currently renovating her own home – so the stresses and strains of working on your house is currently front of her mind when it comes to managing Refresh Renovations Surrey-Hampshire customers! She’s also renovated a full property on a buy-to-let basis, and this now successfully houses tenants who live there full-time. No one could understand more how best to streamline and simplify renovation processes to make things as easy and hassle-free for homeowners during their refurbishment, extension or addition period.
