Renovation Specialist Leigh McDonald supported these homeowners with their ensuite bathroom update.

WORDS Mina Phillips

When retired couple Bob and Glenda attended a Burdens Bathrooms showroom in Dandenong to seek inspiration for their upcoming ensuite renovation, they were given the contact details of their local renovation specialist: Leigh McDonald. As they had already selected all of the fittings and fixtures they wanted for their new bathroom, they needed someone who could help them to organise the project and keep everything running smoothly. 

Leigh and his team worked with the couple to thoroughly understand what their ideal result would look like, what their budget was and how Refresh’s process would be able to provide them with an ideal bathroom update solution. From there, Leigh provided them with a quote and scheduled in his team of tradespeople - ensuring the project was expertly managed every step of the way.

The renovation required the expertise of more than ten different tradespeople who carried out demolition and waste removal, wall lining, plumbing, electrical work, carpentry, waterproofing, shower glazing and tiling using porcelain tiles selected by Bob and Glenda. To future-proof the bathroom, grab rails were also installed.

For added practicality, Leigh’s team also installed a new seperate toilet and also carried out some painting work in the laundry, toilet room and bathroom. 

Completed in 19 days, despite COVID-19 disruptions, the homeowners are now enjoying a modern and practical ensuite.   

“The renovation from start to end took (Leigh’s) professional team of tradesmen only three and a half weeks, including some additional works”, tells Bob in a 5-star Google review. “A special thank you to Richard (construction manager) for his help and insight to my many questions. My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend Leigh and Richard. Thank you again.”
