Lia is amazing. We had some renovation work done to our place 12 months ago. Throughout the process she was incredibly professional, and made sure our needs were met. During the lockdown recently, we noticed a leak in the ceiling (on a Friday night to make things worse). We emailed Lia, and within an hour we had roofers organised for the next day, and all covered under their warranty. We were incredibly impressed with this, and shows that the ongoing support will be there. It is one thing to have a good experience during the work, but to maintain this level after completion is on another level. If I could rate Lia and her team higher I would. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

Lia and her team at Refresh are such a breath of fresh air. Easy to deal with, extremely responsive and professional and what's more, they know their stuff and have a nice way of helping their clients achieve their goals. 

Paige Carlyle

Lia at Refresh Renovations is incredible - so reliable and knowledgable. Can't thank her enough for all of her hard work and professionalism.

We found Kim and the Refresh team great to work with. When we decided to renovate (knocking out a wall to make kitchen/lounge open plan, new kitchen, two bathrooms)  we had very little knowledge about the work that was required to achieve the outcome that we wanted.  Working with the refresh team made the whole process very easy as they had the knowledge and contacts to make our reno fast and easy. We found that everything was clearly communicated and when we had questions or wanted more of an explanation Kim was always available. We were able to share our ideas with confidence that what we wanted would be respected as well as being provided with some solutions to problem areas that we had been unsure of what to do with.  The building team in particular were excellent! We are thrilled with the end result of our renovation and would recommend that anyone who is thinking about using a renovation company give Kim and the team a call.

Kim and her Team were amazing to deal with. We went on the journey of a re-roof, reclad and upgraded to double glazing. From the initial consult through to the end, the Team were communicative, offered solutions, supportive, approachable and efficient. It made what was deemed to be a daunting project into an absolute breeze. They embraced a new cladding product and absolutely owned it. We can not recommend them enough. They will definitely be our go-to in the future.

I used Refresh and Kelley to completely redecorate the ground floor including large open plan living area, kitchen, office and utility room. The job involved re-tiling the whole area and painting some walls and wallpapering. As well as skirting boards and finishing: grouting/sealing etc. It truly is a fully managed service right down to prep work, removal of waste (including all the tiles), and even help/advice with choosing the right tiles and even colour scheme. The quality of the finish was outstanding; each worker was quick, clean and very professional. The pricing was very honest given the level of service, with no hidden costs. I would thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting a high-quality finish, and hassle-free experience.

I can’t recommend Kelley and Refresh Renovations highly enough to complete your home renovation. They kept me updated, were honest about costs and timescales and had amazing attention to detail. Very impressed.

Helen Wilson

Dan and his team were simply awesome with our renovation. The whole process was taken care of for us, down to the finest detail. Communication was clear from start to finish, and Dan accommodated our needs throughout the renovation. Pricing was very reasonable, and the process went through smoothly. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out! We'll get Dan and his team to help us with our next renovation project.

Arie Boer

Matt and Cinzia were terrific to work with. Creative ideas for our reno needs and finished two and a half weeks ahead of schedule. The planning process was easy and clear, and construction was fast, organised and professional. Highly recommended!

Nikolaj Nielsen

Thank you MJ and Refresh Renovations Auckland Central for the superb job with my bathroom upgrades. Personally, I appreciate the way your team listened to our needs, addressed all our pain points during the work and also guiding us with the product selection while giving us the space to choose the right fittings. Very happy with the end result. Looking forward to working with you and your team in future.

We could not recommend Refresh Renovations East and South East more highly. If we could give more than five stars, we would! From beginning to end Leigh and his team made our vision a reality. Hard-working trades - efficient and detail orientated, made sure our space was utilised efficiently and the end result exceeded our expectations. So many compliments on the work and the high level of presentation and workmanship. Its a pleasure to be in the kitchen every day and it has become the heart of our home. Look no further than Refresh for your next renovation. We look forward to using Leigh and his team for our next project.

As an inexperienced renovator with no trade skills, contacts or ideas heading into a renovation is a very daunting process. When I called Leigh to come out and give me a run down on the process involved in a garage conversion I felt immediately assured that I’d made a smart decision in outsourcing this overwhelming task. To Leigh’s credit despite his belief that the project might not even get off the ground due to council regulations he did the professional thing and went through with the presentation anyway. Fortunately he was only half right and the project could continue. The entire process from start to finish was entirely stress free, the only hands on involvement I was required to have was choosing flooring, fittings and finishes (the only parts I felt reasonably comfortable in having input). All the trades were organised and managed, materials and deliveries coordinated, as well as a skip bin for demolition and a cleaner to finish it all off, all I had to do was give him an ok via text. All this right through the stage 2 and 3 lockdown restrictions. The finished product significantly exceeds our expectations and I could not recommend Leigh and the team at Refresh Renovations East & South East any higher!

We knew we wanted to stay in our home as long as possible but with only 3 bedrooms and one living space room was getting tight with toys galore after having our son in 2017.   I reached out to the land of facebook and a friend reached out and advised her brother in law Leigh owned his own renovations business and to have a look.   I jumped on to the facebook page and immediately saw a garage conversion and loved the results. I knew what I wanted and I knew I wanted quality work and I didn’t want to have to deal with organising tradies etc myself so it worked out well to go through someone who would do it all for us.   We met with Leigh and he went through the process and straight away we felt comfortable with him.   The process was smooth enough, and each step was met with lots of communication along the way. We always knew where we stood in the process and there was never any unknown with Leigh.   Once we agreed to the price and the permit was approved it was all steam ahead from there.   Any questions throughout the process Leigh was very quick to respond and any concerns he was right on top of it and onto it promptly.   Whilst the cost of doing jobs like this doesn’t come cheap especially when you are using a renovation specialist, it does take the stress out of having to arrange tradies, quotes, etc and that for us meant more than saving some money.   Overall we are very very happy with the renovation, it has allowed us to stay in our home which we built for many more years and provided us much more room and a lovely outdoor pergola for upcoming summer.   Love our new space, Thank you so much Leigh, Richard, Rob, and all the boys!

From the outset of the project and throughout, a totally friendly and professional service by Asif and Team. Was impressed with the clear explanation of the plan and 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. Highly recommended. 

Kulraj Bhogal

Peter & Danielle from Refresh Tauranga were amazing. Great value, timely & the finished product finished to a standard I have never experienced before- perfection! The kitchen is amazing, their design advice invaluable. Products recommended were very well priced. Their unique processes make so much sense & the cost of the project amazing. The renovation was so simple. Cannot recommend them enough! 

Trudy Hart

My experience with Refresh Renovations was only positive. From the outset, Saleem was helpful and knowledgeable. He offered lots of good ideas and nothing was ever too much trouble. The job was completed on time and there was constant communication. He even managed to find painters with a couple of day's notice for an emergency job outside of the original plan. Saleem is a perfectionist - once the work was done he came round and spotted things I hadn't even noticed and called tradespeople back to sort touch-ups. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.

Stuart Dye

It was clear what our wish-list was, but this didn’t always quite line up with our budget and Lia managed this very well  – we’ve just never learnt how to do that when we’ve tried to do it by ourselves.

Lia was very hands on right through from concept through to completion, including managing the drawings process, council approvals, liaising with suppliers, and offering knowledge on the selection of products.

There’s genuine complexity with some of this stuff, Lia was really good. Occasionally we’d make a call and say something’s not right, and she was nothing but proactive in owning the issue with us and making it right.

We were extremely pleased with the end result.

Scott McCallum

Thank you so much Refresh, Lia and team for making our bathroom renovation so easy and for taking care of all the details for us, especially in seeking out all the fixtures and fittings we wanted and managing the schedule and tradies. The whole experience was very low stress and now we have a light and modern bathroom instead of a dark outdated one – wonderful.

Cate

The team I dealt with (Lia Boersma) were friendly, honest, efficient and had great communication.

James Skinner

We had renovated a previous house ourselves and knew this would be a large job. We were attracted by the idea of having the work professionally project managed to ensure that it was done on time and to budget. We initially met Lia at a home show and were impressed enough to request a site meeting to talk through what we wanted done. After discussing our ideas with them and suggesting solutions, Lia and her team began putting together a design. Lia was excellent at preparing the initial quote, finding ways to fit the work we wanted done into our budget, and then overseeing the ongoing work with (construction manager) Milo. We were particularly impressed with her estimates as they were pretty much spot on…(She) was unfailingly polite and patient in her dealings with us and managed our expectations well. She also provided good advice about interior design.
