“This is a recommendation for Home Renovations a week following the construction of two extensions, internal restructuring, new kitchen, new living room and new plumbing. The project was completed on budget, on time and to a very good quality.

Johan (the owner) and Jakub (Operations Manager) come and quote, and they seem very knowledgable and professional. They put a site manager on the project, who will attend everyday and manage the schedule. Alvydas, our site manager was very good. He was hard working, passionate and always keen to explain where in the project they were. As both my wife and I work full time, it was very important he was able to manage the project without us there, which he did very well. Whilst no project is stress free, this made a big difference to us. And when we had problems with the plumber and bifold doors being a few weeks late, he and the team found smart ways to rejig the schedule, which meant that they were able to still finish on time. Pricing is very transparent, and the team will not do any work without my authorisation of the price, so it was very easy to manage. Finally the quality of the finish has been very good. I hope that the team continues to support me if any major problems arise – on current track record I am sure they will. Overall I would definitely recommend Home Renovations for a building project.”

“We worked with Home Renovations in November 2012 when we decided to go ahead with our extension. Our first contact with them was through our architect, Malcolm Herring, who took on the job to do the plan drawings and the submission to the council for approval.

We could not have been happier with the results from his very capable and professional approach. Malcolm came up with a totally different design to the one we originally had and managed to maximize the space to its true potential.
It was Malcolm who first introduced us to Home Renovations, after checking over the phone with two previous customers we arranged a meeting with Johan who explained the process, the costs involved and any other queries we had. Once we agreed on price and timeframe for the job we met our project manager for the first few weeks, Stephen. We found Stephen very professional and helpful and he always found time to answer our queries.
The project started on time and all workers on site were fast, professional and good to be around. As we were living in the house while the work was being done as a family of four it became apparent that a good relationship with the workers on site is key. We found Home Renovation’s men always polite and honest.
We are extremely happy with the finishing product and would not hesitate to recommend them. We would also be happy to use them in the future if we were carrying out more work in the house.”

“Very happy with build quality on large, complex 90sqm extension. Excellent work ethic, nice guys. Great quote detail, we saved costs by doing work ourselves. 17 week build, longer than quoted but impressive anyway for complexity.

Lived on site with great temp bath/kitchen set up. Issues on site managed proactively. Contract price slightly over quote, some grey areas as to what was included, but compromise agreed. Johan keen to improve quoting accuracy and seeks customer satisfaction. Very highly recommend.

read as problematic) and they did their best to work around the issues that cropped up. They were considerate with our neighbours, with parking (in a small close) and always moving their vans/cars immediately if neighbours needed to get out. We also had a few problems on site that all projects will undoubtedly have, but most importantly they were managed well and a proactive solution sought to both our satisfaction.

I chose to supply the workers with a kettle, tea, coffee, milk and a biscuit tin refilled daily throughout the build which they did not expect, but appreciated. This worked well as they helped themselves when they wished. Add this into your build budget to keep your workforce happy – they eat biscuits as if they are going out of fashion!”

“After interviewing a number of prospective builders we decided to go with Home Renovations Ltd, mainly based on visiting some of their prior clients and viewing the quality of their work and hearing positive feedback.

We had a rear extension built (with new cloakroom), new kitchen installed, garage renovated, new decking and garden landscaping. Overall we were extremely pleased with Home Renovations, they are honest, hardworking, and the quality of their work is to a very high standard. Highly recommended.”

“Work was completed on time and on budget. A rare occurrence these days! Finishing was of a good standard and they came back to remedy small problems after the job had been completed, cannot recommend highly enough.”

“Johan and his team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. My previous experience with builders was that they under-quote both in terms of cost and time; and towards the end of a job they become disinterested.

This could not have been further from the truth with Home Renovations Limited. They came in on budget and on time, and the workmanship was excellent quality. My project was a complete refurbishment of a newly purchased garden flat. I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“Home Renovations knocked down an old existing conservatory and rebuilt it into a much larger room with a skylight and bifold doors onto the garden. They repositioned a downstairs cloakroom and put in a new kitchen, new boiler and radiators. It looks great and is much admired. It’s nice to find builders who work hard and turn up every day!”

“We had a new side return extension with bifolding sliding doors into garden, a new kitchen, cellar converted into utility room with small toilet room, new solid oak floorboards laid throughout house (ground floor to third floor) and painting/decorating in every room. Overall we are extremely impressed with the finished product and are loving living in our new home!

The workmen are such lovely people and very friendly – they even entertained my little boy! They are hardworking and always start the day at 7.30-8.00am and finish at 5pm with few breaks. The project manager was onsite everyday for the first few weeks and then every second day for the remainder of the job. He is always contactable and very honest about everything, which meant we built a very trustworthy working relationship. They ran two weeks over but through no fault of their own (my failure to get party wall agreement signed!) and virtually stuck to budget – the extras were either unexpected items which were agreed at time of discovery or scope creep from me! I am extremely confident in recommending this company and my only regret was getting a separate kitchen company to fit the kitchen – I should have done supply only and let Home Renovations do the rest!”
