Working with Michelle and Jason Zielinski on the complete renovation of our two bedroom, two bathroom, Perth apartment has been a flawless process. From our very first meeting with them, it was very clear that they were professional, ethical, held themselves to account but, most important of all, were as invested in the renovation project as we were. We immediately felt that we were in a partnership with them, that they would capture our vision for the apartment and, with their experience, enhance that vision. At that first meeting, we arrived with a list of “Absolutes” and a “Wish List”. Michelle and Jason delivered on them all, within the projected timeline, and within the projected budget. We could not be more pleased with their commitment to - and management of - the project, the workmanship of their team members, and the final outcome. Refresh Renovations provided a complete service from project commencement to completion, with professional documentation and communication provided at each step of the renovation journey. Additionally, an access internet link was provided, whereby Jason posted regular updates and photos documenting the renovation progress. This was so welcome during our six-week overseas absence, and reflects the trust we had in our partnership. We cannot recommend Refresh Renovations highly enough, and are so thankful that we were able to transform our apartment through the investment and expertise of Michelle and Jason.

Sue & Stuart Spiers

We had a vision of a complex under house extension - separate unit with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, living areas, deck looking over underutilised back yard and elevated views. We found it hard to get anyone to even look at the job. But Martin at Refresh Renovations Gold Coast took it step by step - ideas, concepts, initial plans through to full drawings, costings, engineers report etc. The result was a beautiful design that we loved. Unfortunately the engineering and construction aspects of building under our house on a steep gradient put it out of our reach. But Martin's approach made it possible to explore thoroughly before making our decision. We've referred family members to Martin since and their major renovation is now under way.

This review is taken from Google and is 5*:- From the get go, Martin and his team at Refresh made us feel comfortable in the choice to engage them - looking into adding a second storey to our house was a first for us and Martin explained each stage, what would be needed and the full scope coverage they could provide in extreme depth which was great. We went through both concept and feasibility stages. At the concept stage, JC from Perfect Square alongside Martin talked us through various option of how they had envisioned our plan notes and bought it to life - and they were very open to discussion and accommodating when we had queries as to whether other options would work. Once the final concept was agreed upon, we went to the feasibility stage and this was amazingly thorough and left no detail or cost unaccounted for - which is brilliant when you are doing a build/extension. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Refresh and Perfect Square

5 Star Review on Google Martin and the team at Refresh Renovations were wonderful to work with and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Martin always made himself available to us for any questions we had throughout the process which was very reassuring. The building contractors were efficient and produced a high quality of work. The team worked with us to ensure that we could get the best result within our budget! They transformed our small space into a bright and lovely tiny home where we can enjoy time with our grandchildren. Thank you.

Sue Reid

My home is now complete. After Martin and his team did a wonderful job renovating the first floor of my villa, I decided to go ahead with Refresh to renovate my ground floor; a space that could be used for a self contained unit, or additional space for spreading out and taking advantage of the garden. After discovering issues with the structural beam, and on engineers advice, the main beam was replaced, the kitchenette redesigned to sit unobtrusively along one wall and the back of the house opened up with bifold doors, bringing the outside in. Martin's team was efficient and the work was timely. Any issues were dealt with and resolved. I'm very happy with the finished product and now have a brand new home. Thanks Martin and Refresh.

Lynne Hill, returning client

Professional and polite. There was never any foul language from the different tradesman we had in. They were hard working, arriving early, staying late and even working weekends and public holidays to get the job done. Very knowledgeable and experienced in problem solving. Would highly recommend.

Renovation Consultant: Hashim Nasser

Krystle Payne

I would first of all say how impressive it was to have my call answered by a friendly helpful human being. I had found it was very difficult to even get a phone number for a renovation company it was all email communication or if there was a phone number you were answered by a recorded message. Secondly, I do apologise I don’t the name of the lady who I spoke with at your company, however she was friendly, courteous, took my details and advised me someone would contact me within the next two business days. Shortly after our conversation I received an email from your company confirming her advice, which I found was very professional and to my surprise I received a telephone call from you later in the day. In the rather impersonal world we now live in the whole experience was “refreshing” you have the perfect company name!
Renovation Consultant: Matt Dwyer

Michele O'Donnell

We just had our bathroom renovated by Refresh Renovations. They couldn't have done a more beautiful job. Sharon Giblett was our project manager and designer and helped us from start to finish. Choosing colours, tiles and even vanity and shower. She made sure all of the tradies arrived on time too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for any work to anyone.
Renovation Consultant: Sharon Giblett

Bronwyn and Jim Cooper

The entire Refresh Renovations team were excellent, from start to finish. Every aspect of our planned renovations was discussed, and Sophia and Rachel assisted in our decision-making with professionalism and creativity. Their knowledge of products, of feasibility and of practicality was invaluable. We were fully involved and updated at every step of the way, and they patiently and clearly answered our myriad questions! No detail was too small or unimportant and anything we raised was dealt with swiftly and efficiently. During the build Mike as Project Manager was at pains to make sure we knew what the plan was week by week. He was involved with the trades on a daily basis and ensured that everything was completed to his exacting standards. We are absolutely thrilled with the results. We would highly recommend Refresh Renovations to anyone looking to do renovations in the future and, if it's bathrooms, make sure you take them up on the option of the portable shower. It was a lifesaver and is bigger and more efficient than many we have seen in motels and holiday parks!
Renovation Consultant: Sophia Roydhouse-Ross

Jon and Anne

We cannot recommend Steve and his team at Refresh Renovations more highly. They were friendly & efficient and were very helpful in helping us plan our total renovation of our kitchen. When a problem arose as it does with old houses, we were treated more than fairly and were so grateful we chose to go with a reputable firm and will be asking them back in future to do some more renovation around our house. Special thanks to Polly (project manager) and Jason (builder).

John & Bubs

From the moment Rachel from Refresh Renovations came for a home visit, we knew we were in good hands. We did not hesitate to engage Rachel throughout our bathroom renovation from the beginning to the end. Rachel ensured everything ran as smoothly as possible including organising the trades (plumber, builders, electrician, glazier, flooring, shower dome installer). Rachel has a wonderful attention to detail and understood our needs. I highly recommend Rachel as a project manager and should the need arise, we would be more than happy to use her services again.
Renovation Consultant: Rachel Fenton


Rachel was fantastic to work with and is really exactly who you want if you’re renovating from a distance! She communicated regularly and clearly through the quote and design process which gave us the confidence to take the plunge. I immediately got the sense Rachel “got me” and my vision (as well as the budget). Progress on the build itself was swift and when there were changes to the timeline/plans/products again communication was great and I felt included and informed even from afar. I’m particular about how I like things and renovating can be overwhelming - having time and information was key. We were supported all the way through to the final touches at the end. I appreciated her warm, friendly as well as professional approach.

Renovation Consultant: Rachel Fenton

Rachael Sumner

We approached Refresh Renovations to discuss some ideas we had to improve our home. The consultant Sophia was extremely helpful and professional (despite our failure to remember the scheduled meeting). She outlined the processes, and timetables, the various steps involved and what the outcome would be. We concluded that we did not want to proceed due to the upheaval it would cause at this point in our lives. However, we would happily commission Sophia and Refresh Renovations to take forward our plans into the future when our situation changes. They were very impressive.
Renovation Consultant: Sophia Rojas

Peter Spence

We have recommended Refresh to EVERYONE. Wayne is an absolute professional, who put us first throughout the entire process. We are return customers again and again due to the communication, costing and professionalism of the team. Looking forward to working with them again in future.
Renovation Consultant: Wayne Gordon

Paul Colls

Such a nice bunch of people. They were very flexible in how many of their 5 step process we were able to use. If you have no design experience and need a team to help you design, plan and find you suppliers then this is the place to go!

Renovation Consultant: Tracy Kinsman

Sophie Stevens

I cannot recommend Refresh Renovations highly enough. Professional at every stage they can take the worry out of your project. Alana was great and explained everything clearly & succinctly. Thank you so much.

Renovation Consultant: Tracy Kinsman

Jade Hardrade-Grosz

Both Renovation Consultants were very helpful and explained everything very clearly.

Renovation Consultant: Matthew Hartigan


The advice I was given was helpful and I was not put under any pressure to make decisions. The timeline and costs for the project were 100% accurate. The work was completed to a high standard and with no time wasted. I am very happy with the result.
Renovation Consultants: Lawrie and Mandy Foster

Janet Jennings

When we bought our first house three years ago we knew it needed some work, but thanks to Lia and her team we've started 2023 in what feels like a brand new home. Our little 1960's weatherboard house has been modernised without losing it's 'Kiwi' character. A bright new open-plan kitchen/lounge, a seperate laundry, toilet, and bathroom, along with a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe. All which was done on time, and during a pandemic - very professional. It is a home we are very proud of, and we have you, Tina, Mike, and all your team to thank. Yours Sincerely Tony and Yuki

Tony Ludlam and Yuki Fujita

My wife and I engaged the services of Sharon Giblet at Refresh Renovations to project manage the modernisation of our garage. Sharon did a wonderful job , engaging with numerous tradespeople which freed up our time, and ensuring the job was completed within tight timeframes leading up to Christmas despite the “weather”. Sharon also kept in contact with us regularly so we always knew what was happening. We were very satisfied with end result and would recommend.
Renovation Consultant: Sharon Giblett

Martin Sadd

The reason we chose to work with Refresh is that we required a business that could oversee and project manage our kitchen and living area renovation. Sharon was just what we needed. She walked us through the process and kept us informed along the way as to what we needed to do at each stage. Choosing the layout and what we could do with our space was something that Sharon really assisted us with.  She listened and offered us professional yet personal advice about what was available and what would suit our needs. As with any large renovation, things don't always go to plan, but Sharon was incredibly flexible and forward thinking, moving tradies' time slots to ensure completion was as close to the plan as possible.We are so pleased with the end result and it's wonderful to finally see our plans move from paper printouts and 3D computer graphics to actually the finished product. We couldn't be happier and it has made our house a bright, modern and well-functioning home, linking the inside and outside areas seamlessly. We have had nothing but compliments from family and friends and we look forward to entertaining in our beautifully laid out kitchen - all just in time for Christmas!!
Renovation Consultant: Sharon Giblett

Debbie Rice

The whole process was made so much easier by the very competent leadership of Fionas her guidance and knowledge in all aspects was professional caring and of high standard.
Renovation Consultant: Fiona Fairbain

Trish Turner

Very happy with outcome. Good communication from all tradesmen who attended site. Great communication from Michael.

Staci Tanerau

Generally like to be in control of renovations but being new to area had no connections to tradespeople. Refresh was a simple solution. Job was managed well & tradespeople used were efficient & knew their stuff.

Karen Whittred

Jim has a great team of professionals and together they made everything worry free, of a high professional standard and easy to understand and follow where things were at.
Renovation Consultant: Jim Gleeson

Vilash Patel

We are in our seventies and downsized from the city to a country cottage that needed a serious reno. We didn’t have a budget. We had a set amount. Family and friends said “good luck finding tradies”. That scared us. Refresh quoted a specified (quite short) timeframe for our requirements and at our set price. THEY DELIVERED. Nadeene was exceptional with advice on interior design, appliances, fittings and where to spend and where to save. Little important details we would never have thought about. We are so grateful to have had our project managed for us by Refresh. on time, on price and problem free.
Renovation Consultant: Steve and Lee Roper

Fay & David Currie

Pleasant polite tradies. Good quality work. Prompt rectifying of mistake. PM kept me informed.
Project Manager: Michael Zhang

Allen Mudford

I am very happy with my new laundry. Nita kept me well informed on what was happening and all the tradesmen were great, plumber electrician and builder. I would recommend her to other people.
Renovation Consultant: Nita Craig

Anne & Ian Soper

We are very thankful for Alana’s professionalism and efficiency. Although we ended up not going through with this company we found the process was great.We will indeed recommend the service to others as if we had known about this offer, at the start of our renovation journey, we would have definitely have chosen this path. We think it might save lots and lots of headaches! Thanks

Rita & Sergio

Andre (Refresh Renovations) and the builder did a great job renovating our home. The job involved creating an upstairs area by adding 2 extra bedrooms, as well as removing interior walls to open up the existing space and creating a new kitchen. They were very professional. Andre worked closely with us to ensure the new work would meet our expectations & needs.

Tammy Vu

We employed Andre to build a Garage and Decking (the Garage had complication due to the Land Sloping) At the start there were some small problem, but as the Job progressed Andre and his Team were total Professionals in ALL ways and very Good to work with. As Covid caused many many problems for Andre and his Team, but they worked tirelessly to get the project completed (thanks). We cannot recommend Andre (and his Team) highly enough, and are thankful for all that they did for us. steve (from Sunbury).

Steve Rees

Andre is dedicated, creative, highly engaged and extremely positive to work with. He had some great ideas for our building project. He is also very reliable and has excellent contacts within the building profession.

Andrew Harrison

Easy to work with, got the finished product we had envisioned

Sammy Mcintosh-brown

Effective communication and project management every step of the way. The entire team took great pride in the way they worked on site and their passion was clearly evident. We are so proud of the outcome that created a more functional living environment. We highly recommend Jim and the Refresh team.

Troy Restieaux

So great to have a service that takes care of everything for you. Even the smallest projects involve a wide variety of products and trades, so it is luxurious to know someone is across the detail.

Suzanne Macleod

Thanks so much for your help – it’s really reassuring when a company doesn’t try to oversell their capacity. I have already recommended a friend of mine to go with Refresh Renovations for her bathroom remodel. Many thanks, And Pasley

And Pasley

Our bathroom was unusable when we bought the house, so we decided to completely gut it and start from scratch. Refresh were an amazing team from start to finish. The whole project was completed to a high quality. The excellent communication through every stage of the project made it less stressful for us knowing we were being looked after. I would highly recommend Refresh to anyone wanting to renovate their home.

Kylie Kassan

Second time I have worked with Leigh from Refresh Renovations Melbourne. Our reno was completed on time, on budget, and we were kept informed along the way.

Lisa Connell

I worked with Feza to discuss feasibility of my renovation project. Very pleased with the communication and insight to how I should approach modernising my house. Thank you very much for your professionalism!

Sonila Dardha

From design to final sign off, Asif and his team were professional, courteous and informative. They managed to turn my vision into a beautiful house which I am delighted to come home to each evening. Queries were responded to quickly and I never felt unsupported in the process. Final snag list was completed promptly. I will definitely be using this company again for future projects.

Sarah McCready

Excellent project management and good workmen. Took a huge weight off my shoulders

David Thompson

Everything was organised, kept well up to date, tradesmen were friendly and accommodating.

Monica Huisman

Nita was excellent throughout. She project managed the conversion of an internal cupboard into an office with windows through to the internal swimming pool, and also the renovation of a dated laundry that didn't have enough storage space. Her team of tradies did a great job and her communication was excellent throughout. These two rooms are now much more liveable and practical spaces for us and we are delighted with the results, and we feel this will have added value to the house.

Dave and Jenny Stringer

1st class work , nothing was too much trouble to change . Friendly, polite and would recommend to anyone doing a renovation to contact Refresh Renovations.

Phil and Jeanette Ball

Professional unique service James introduced himself in a warm and friendly manner. He was upfront with me and had no hidden agenda and was passionate about the company. He presented a brief but detailed account of the business and with integrity. I appreciated how he assessed my situation. Unfortunately I felt my budget, time frame to get the job done and what i wanted done did not fit in this instance.


We are already recommending Refresh to friends & family. Those that have seen our new ensuite have been full of admiration for the high quality finish

Jill Shelley

Saleem and the team completed a few renovations and build projects across two of our properties. These included two bathroom renovations, converting a garage into a habitable space, and designing and building a carport. Saleem and the team managed the projects end-to-end – from initial consultation, design, build, consent, council inspections, quality assurance etc. Each project was delivered on time, within the agreed scope and to a high standard. The areas where Saleem excels are his clear communication and meeting commitments and deadlines. He also has a calm and reassuring manner, which was needed when unforeseen things crop up. For example, during our garage conversion, some rot was identified on timber framing. Saleem’s team pivoted and remediated this issue quickly and without too much impact on the budget. Another aspect that I want to call out is the team Saleem has picked is respectful and mindful of the noise. With hybrid ways of working, there was usually someone working from home. Saleem’s team kept the noise to a minimum, which was appreciated. I highly recommend Saleem and the team for your next project.

Nip Carthelis

Prompt responses. Friendly services and everyone we came in contact with were professional and knowledgeable.

Sarah Pettigrew

Very professional team that was thorough in their work. On time and very clear communication. Flexible and involve customer at every step.


Refresh renovations were refreshingly honest, professional and very innovative in turning a derelict flat into a lovely flat that was able to let less than a week after works were completed - very highly recommended-!!!

Stuart Mason

Very professional approach and quick to respond. We are still at the early stages, but so far it's been a pleasure to work with Refresh Renovations Leeds (& Wakefield).


I am very happy with the bathroom renovations in my house managed by Kathleen Magon. Nothing was a problem to Kathleen and she sorted out all inquiries in a timely manner. The tradesmen involved were all exceptional workers, courteous and helpful. The only negative comment I have is that it seemed to take a very long time to accomplish, six plus weeks. But maybe I underestimated the amount of work required and the fact that the various tradesmen needed to be on a timetable so they could do their part without being crowded out by another worker on site. I am thrilled with the finished product and it was good to have all options for the fittings and finished to be conveyed to me for a decision. All in all a great job accomplished in Covid conditions!

Renovation Consultant: Kathleen Magon


Kathleen was fantastic to work with. She is very customer focussed and proactive, and her attention to detail and follow through was exceptional. Kathleen was always very positive and nothing was a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending Kathleen and her team.

Renovation Consultant: Kathleen Magon


Personable, prompt and professional.

Anita Bradford

Peter and Danielle were great to deal with. Danielle helped me with the design side and choosing flooring, tiles, furniture etc. Peter managed the project and was very approachable, understanding and accommodating. I am pleased with the result of the renovation and would happily recommend Refresh Tauranga.


Nothing was too much trouble and we were given everything we wanted. The different trades persons employed did a very good job and were pleasant to have in our home.

Bill and Heather

I don't normally do reviews, but in this instance i think it warrants one. Totally professional approach from initial engagement right through to the completion of the work. It was such a weight off my shoulders with refresh doing everything, from the initial design, working from my requirements and suggestions, through to managing every aspect of the work (sourcing materials, workforce, deliveries) every aspect was managed in such a way that this has been the only renovation i've had done that has been stress free. everything was project managed extremely efficiently and respectful of my needs. Even when i had an issue, post the actual build (nothing to do with the renovation), refresh stepped up and helped me to resolve the issue, even though they had no obligation to do so. I would and already have recommended Refresh to my friends and would certainly engage with again if i carry out any further renovations.

Tony Mottram

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sophia and Tom, from Refresh. Top quality service and communication from start to finish. Professional down to every detail, with no missed appointments, and no stone left unturned. Divisions above, "average builders from down the road." On time and on budget - Don't doubt it!

Chris Allen

Refresh a excellent job of project managing our house renovation. What started as a bathroom renovation ended up being a total house renovation Really pleased with the end result.

Rod Whyte

Having Refresh coordinate the various trades was extremely valuable to us given we both work full time and have two children. They provided a great service and had the customer at the heart of their process.

Tom Herring

They achieved what I wanted according to my plan, and progress through the renovation was very good without any unexpected issues. I was happy with the project management and kept well informed.

Ian Cordes

We are so impressed with the team at Refresh Renovation - Hawkes Bay. Sophia, Rachel and Mike’s design flair, attention to detail, clarity of communication, and excellent project management ensured that a potentially stressful home renovation was actually really enjoyable and stress-free. They approached all aspects of this project with abundant professionalism, and any challenges were promptly and effectively resolved, with us being kept in the loop through the whole process. Their team of tradespeople were just superb, and it was a pleasure to have them in our home. All the tradespeople were on site when they said they would be and cleaned up at the end of each day, which was so appreciated as we remained in the house throughout the project. Mike went above and beyond on a daily basis, ensuring all aspects progressed seamlessly. We did have some variations that were unavoidable, but the Team provided excellent suggestions and modifications to our plans to ensure we adhered closely to our budget without compromising our vision. The project was completed within the timeframe indicated despite interruptions from Covid. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome and can not recommend this team of talented professionals highly enough. Chris and Mel Emerald Hill Havelock North.

Melanie Leef

It was a large project, as I was not only wanting to renovate my bathroom from the ground up, I also wanted to replace the plumbing for the whole house, all while we were in the middle of the pandemic. It took a while to get going, but once it started it felt like it flowed from start to finish. There were a few issues that popped up but Michael and the team were flexible in working around them so that they didn't become big problems, and throughout the job, they provided heaps of useful ideas. All in all it only came in a little over budget with the last minute additions, but the quality of the work was much higher than I expected and definitely worth it.

Ashley Taylor

We were looking to renovate and extend our home. Sharon was very professional and friendly and great to deal with throughout. Although we decided to go a different route, her advice was excellent and very helpful. Highly recommended.
Renovation Consultant: Sharon Giblett

Tim Jamieson

I was very happy with my project outcome and the step by step process to get there. Thank you to Lawrie, Mandy, and Rob for their support and guidance throughout.

Karen Mac Kenzie

Appreciated the genuine care to find out what we were after and the solutions provided.

Matt Adsett

Very happy with outcome and the project was handled very efficiently. Excellent communication.


Kathy was very professional and a pleasure to talk through ideas with. She was thorough and dedicated her time to understanding the overall vision for our property. I would recommend having a discussion Kathy to work through your vision.


Very happy with the service, contact and communication from Nita. She listen to what I envisioned and was happy to work through ideas until I was happy with result. I was very unsure of what I had wanted and had been a project to sort out since 2018, (it would have been a lot cheaper then!). I love the look and function of my new wardrobe, One satisfied customer. Thank You.

Denise Williams

Trouble free throughout the journey of the renovation process. Dealing with one very knowledgeable project manager Anita from Blenheim office. Our bathroom ideas came to fruition and within our budget. This project will enabled us to future proof our house.

Lyn Bevin

I found them easy to communicate with and the workmanship was of a high standard

Malcolm Tasker

Consistent communication and timely completion


Communications 5/5, Very Professional Thanks for your time, putting a quote together for us. We appreciate your quick turn around and quote breakdown.

Matt Baker

It was a seamless experience from beginning to end.

Jane Rutherford

Sharon was amazing. We never could have managed our own Reno the way she did, and through a pandemic too.

Julie Kirkland

Wayne looked after us and went beyond my expectations.

Jamie Derkson

Unfortunately our renovations were severely hampered by Covid 19. However, the efforts of Leigh McDonald to ensure we were delivered an outstanding renovation, despite all the problems, were absolutely superb.

Robyn Cameron

Saleem and the Refresh team came and gutted and renovated our only bathroom. They were great, guided us through the whole way in a professional manner and delivered on time and in budget and kept in constant communication with us, popping by to make sure everything was going as it should. They were so good that we got them back to gut and renovate our kitchen too! Again they delivered on time and in budget and always let us know what was going on, even keeping great communication with me when I had to travel to Europe for a family emergency halfway through the build. I felt very safe leaving everything in their hands and it all looked absolutely wonderful when I got back home. Every thing has been done to a really high standard and all the tradies were lovely and turned up on time and were very respectful of our little house. They were a great team to work with and I highly recommend them!

Rachel Burcher

We had been considering renovating our home for a number of years but had always been reticent to start, given the inevitable complexities of the process and the potential pitfalls of project managing something so significant ourselves. Our decision to engage Saleem and his team was the best choice we could have made. From the first design meeting - through planning, costings, consenting and then the actual build process - the communications, level of engagement and renovations were exemplary. Saleem and the team always had pragmatic and high-quality solutions to any complexities that arose and dealt with our ‘bright ideas’ with aplomb. The completed renovation was everything we could have hoped for with the final costings and timings also consistent with the estimates provided once the design was finalised. We haven’t hesitated to recommend Saleem wherever we can and will definitely use them again if and when we decide to undertake another renovation.

Dean Werder

We worked with Saleem and his team on the renovation of our kitchen, laundry and hallway, two bathrooms and lounge. It required design work, stripping everything out and upgrading all areas. Our experience was extremely good and we would have no hesitation in recommending Saleem. The communication was very good, both in person and via emails and so forth. We found the online system really good. The quality of the work is very high. The site was kept clean and tidy throughout, and checks on quality were regularly undertaken as the works progressed. We completed on time, even with Covid 19 being a consideration. There were no delays and they were actually able to install the kitchen earlier than planned. We would definitely work with Saleem and the team again in the future. And it was fun!

Sally Manuireva

Very good communication from start to finish. Very professional and a great job was done!

Michelle Nicholas

I highly recommend Sharon Giblett from Tauranga for bathroom renovations. Throughout the design and build process she listened to my requirements, gave her professional advice and we came up with solutions which created the perfect bathroom. The finished bathroom was better than expected.

Sanjay Patel

Mike, Sophia, and their team were a godsend from start to finish with my bathroom renovation.The whole process was seamless, they arranged everything, from making appointments, bringing samples to go through, giving advice, plus making suggestions.  Once the project began I received regular updates on how things were progressing; watching it on a daily basis and seeing all  the trades do their thing, it all came together!!I value the trusted working relationship Mike & Sophia have with their wider team, i.e. Tradies and the suppliers they work with, giving the total package of “customer service”. Thanks so much.

Catherine Sheridan

I highly recommend Sharon Giblett from Tauranga for bathroom renovations. Throughout the design and build process she listened to my requirements, gave her professional advice and we came up with solutions which created the perfect bathroom. The finished bathroom was better than expected.

Sanjay Patel

Excellent, Supportive, Innovative and Consistent. These are words that capture the services we received from the Refresh Team. The team took away the stress of project managing and oversaw the entire project from the beginning to the end.

Paul Ilo

Finally deciding to proceed with a major renovation of my 1886 cottage was an extremely big deal for me, especially given the current building and renovation climate and the horror stories you would commonly hear. It’s fair to say I procrastinated a lot before finally committing and I appreciated Mike and Sophia’s patience at that time. And I’m so pleased I did commit and proceed! Not only was my renovation experience excellent, the outcome exceeded my expectation and I absolutely love my beautiful home! I did not have any of the issues I was worried about. The team of tradespeople that Refresh chose to work with were all great. There were no hold-ups due to product issues and, apart from a couple of variations that seemed sensible along the way, we stayed within budget. There was only one hiccup involving the colour of the benchtops which was an error on the part of the supplier, not Refresh, and this was resolved quickly and without question. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike and Sophia. Their advice was sound throughout the process and although I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to achieve, they contributed many helpful ideas along the way. In terms of managing the project once the build got underway, exceptional! Everything went extremely smoothly and if not for the bench issue the job would have been completed well under the projected time. As it was, it still came in on time. I know I could not have taken on such a big renovation without their expertise and professionalism for which I remain very grateful.

Renovation Consultants: Sophia Roydhouse-Ross & Mike Ross

Jenny Ryan

From the outset of the project and throughout, a totally friendly and professional service. Was impressed with the clear explanation of the plan of the project stages. Consultations were detailed, knowledgeable and informative. During the planning stage appointments were arranged promptly and conveniently which I very much appreciated. The supporting literature and IT portal to allow me to track the project were excellent. I could review any plans and documents related to the project with ease at any time. Communication was always responsive. During the build stage I was kept informed of progress. Change requests were dealt with quickly, efficiently and managed well. Highly recommended.

Kulraj Bhogal

Refresh helped us to achieve a really good renovation in trying times, with Covid putting stretches on resources. Danielle and Peter were quick to help with any queries and were very professional and easy to deal with. We are very happy with our refreshed home.

Renovation Consultants: Danielle Renèe & Peter Jenkins

Ross & Michelle Baird

Peter and Danielle from Refresh Tauranga have been wonderful to deal with, are genuine and truly care about the outcome of your project.

Peter & Danielle were great to work with on the bathroom & laundry renovation in our 100 year old beach house. Peter project managed the process, showed us sample tiles, flooring, shower and hardware to consider. The project was completed on time and handed back to us after the new bathroom & laundry had been cleaned. We love our new bathroom /laundry and would love to recommend Peter & Danielle from Refresh Renovations, Tauranga.

I highly recommend this company. Peter and Danielle were amazing, and made the whole renovation run smoothly. We had one on one and Zoom meetings along the way, and they organised all appointments for us to view products. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were kept informed of where things were at with the work. I would definitely use this service again.

I have really enjoyed working with Mike, Sophia and their team at Refresh. It was so great to have lots of advice on the initial plans. My renovation ideas completely changed after our first meeting .So many fun things to think about!!! From the beginning stages to the finished product they were nothing but professional. Communication was excellent and any questions I had were answered immediately. The tradesmen were all so respectful, friendly, professional and informative. It was much appreciated to have Mike on site most days to check progress and keep me updated. The work was carried out to a very high standard. I would highly recommend Refresh and would love to work with Mike and Sophia again if the situation arose.

We are so thrilled we employed Sharon Giblett of Refresh Renovations Tauranga to project manage our new kitchen. From the consultation process, right through to the design, choosing the kitchen company, demolition, co-ordinating all the tradies, to the final sign off she was "hands on", overseeing every aspect of the build. Given the difficult climate with material shortages, delivery delays and COVID isolations, she kept our project on track and we have ended up with a beautiful kitchen in a reasonable timeframe and with very little stress. Many thanks Sharon. We will be using you again and highly recommend you to anyone looking at taking on a house project.

Danielle and Peter did a very professional job on our kitchen and two bathroom reno earlier this year. There were disruptions around supply of some products but alternatives were found very quickly. They were very easy to deal with and very honest and trustworthy. We love the finished product and know it has added so much more value to our home.

Peter & Danielle- Refresh Renovations were amazing. Cannot recommend enough. Great service, communication, price & overall product. Everything was so well organised, well priced, timely and finished to perfection- contrary to our prior experiences renovating. The process was so simple! And the way they structure their process was unique but makes so much sense! Products recommended were very good value and well priced. Design advice top-notch. Would definitely use them again & am recommending them to everyone. Our kitchen is amazing & their service was outstanding.

We had Danielle and Peter help us quote and investigate doing extensive renovations to our home. They were wonderful to work with, always professional, great communication. They made the process easy and were very down to earth. We would absolutely recommend working with them and should we have any renovation needs in the future would have no hesitation to employ their services again.

Had our initial consultation with Danielle for our renovation and she provided a really good service made it easy to understand she was honest and practical. Will definitely be using Refresh Tauranga once we are ready to go ahead.

Positive: Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value For some years we had thought about renovating the large double garage at the rear of our family home in to an apartment. We googled and contacted a couple of builders and also Refresh Renovations. Scott Randell came out with a builder and looked at what we wanted to achieve. The process was set in motion. We liked the concept of having someone - Narelle Randell to manage the project. A concept design was created and presented to us by the architect Narelle chose. The pool filter had to be moved out of the existing garage and a small old bathroom in the corner demolished. The space was gutted. Covid and lockdowns delayed things but basically it took 8 months. Narelle was patient when we thought of things along the way. She introduced us to an Interior Designer who assisted in process of colour and fitting choices. We do not hesitate to recommend Narelle Randell and Refresh Renovations to manage a renovation process for you. PS Since the renovation was completed Narelle & Refresh Renovations have gone above and beyond with sorting some little things that have cropped up - especially with the huge Sydney rains. We are both so very happy with the outcome!

Sophia and Mike were amazing, professional and had great communication throughout the project management of our house extension of master bedroom, ensuite, walk in wardrobe and laundry. Great at listening at ideas/issues and giving advice of products. Right from design to end of build they were there. Great contacts for sub contractors and local trade business. Can not fault them. Would recommend Sophia and Mike and will definitely use them in the future. Lynda and Steve Westaway.
