Corey and his team were fantastic to deal with from start to finish. The renovation service was professional, and was well laid out and managed through online software. Renovating in an apartment comes with it's barriers and obstacles, which we were all collectively able to overcome. Was kept informed with the project throughout. We renovated a floor, laundry room, wardrobe and sun seat. Would recommend anyone to use Corey and his team for any mid to large renovation projects.
I hired refresh to construct a one story extension and create a kitchen dinner and downstairs toilet. I wanted someone to project manage it all for and was really taken on the idea of a fixed maximum price. Sergio took me through the whole process from all the planning through to completion. I am really pleased with the result. It is a really high quality job and everything was finished off before project closure. Even though there were some complications along the way refresh honoured the fixed price. Highly recommend.
I purchased a home and planned to remove some built-in joinery and give a fresh coat of paint, but unexpectedly behind the joinery in each room were concrete exterior walls and water damage- and I discovered this when I already had a team of painters there. I was quite stressed, as I did not have a builder involved in the project, but remembered I had Hashim's contact details from a previous tentative discussion about potential reno's down the track- one phone call to Hashim and he was there with his building manager literally within an hour- we had new walls installed for the painters within 24 hours- it was so fast that painters were completely uninterrupted. Saved the day is an understatement, Hashim and John worked so hard at a moments notice to not only fix our surprise wall problem but also to coordinate tradespeople and "finish the house" to an incredibly high standard. To get the job done on a tight timeline, John was there himself mixing concrete on a Saturday afternoon, we are beyond grateful for the help and high quality work. Refresh Renovations do very high-quality work with excellent attention to detail and are very experienced builders/renovators.
You have been great as always, my other property is now rented till Oct / Nov with a possibility to extend to the end of year. I will sing out then for a kitchen and bathroom job. Hope to work with you again

Thank you to Leigh and his team at Refresh from the East and South East territory. They built an amazing deck area for us and we are loving having the extra living space. They were all very professional and the quality of work was outstanding from start to finish. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
Refresh Renovations' service was excellent. From the first meeting with Guy Allenby we knew we were in the hands of an experienced professional who really wanted to create a beautiful home for us. He patiently introduced us to a variety of designers at the outset and was always available to discuss ideas and options. During the build, Guy worked through arising issues with us calmly and intelligently. He never failed to go the extra mile and we were so thankful for his generosity and support! We would highly recommend Guy and Refresh Renovations to anyone embarking on the journey to renovate and create a new home. We are absolutely thrilled with the final result.
Sergio and Christian were both professional and efficient. We had 2 projects successfully completed and only the pandemic was to blame for the 2nd one overrunning. The standard and detail was exemplary and we would thoroughly recommend.
Dianne and I want to thank you both so much and are grateful, not only for your professional standards, but also for your concern and loyalty during our renovation experience. Dianne and I were very fortunate to have you both as our project management team, organising all Registered Master Builders within the original renovation schedule. We were pleased with your ideas and vision, that gave our renovations a more modern and “Refresh” look to a higher standard than was previously imagined. Most importantly we want to thank you for the advantage of the realistic pricing, prior and to the commencement of our renovations. We have the privilege to know you both as passionate and resourceful renovation leaders, and look forward to our next renovation project together. Our Sincerest and Deepest Gratitude.

Hashim, John and team from Refresh Renovations have been highly professional and a pleasure to work with. Throughout our renovation they have been open and transparent, with great attention to detail and high quality workmanship. Nothing has been too much trouble and they have found solutions to our big and small issues. We would highly recommend the team from Refresh Renovations.
We wanted to modernise our thirty-year-old home and still retain the country charm. Where could we even begin? Thankfully we began with Refresh Renovations. They listened, talked, designed and redesigned. ( thanks Morgen). They organised, managed and coordinated ( thanks to Martin ) They turned the nearly impossible into the very possible ( a big thanks to builder Paul ). They brought thoughts into reality ( thanks to all those expert tradesmen ).
Refresh Renovations bring good old fashioned know-how to the table coupled with the integrity, patience and understanding that paves the way for an excellent outcome. They stand one hundred percent behind their promises ( even for up to seven years after the build ). Now that is refreshing!
This is a team that deserves to be, not only commended, but also, highly recommended.

We contracted Refresh Renovations to renovate our existing kitchen and convert part of the integral garage into a utility room and downstairs washroom. The work started one week before the country went into Lockdown, and quickly the work fell into difficulties with having to reduce the workers on site due to the need to maintain social distancing and problems obtaining supplies. The issues meant that the agreed timescales were eventually doubled, but despite this, the work was eventually completed. There were various specification changes due to the supply problems, but the team were very pro-active in bringing these changes to light and flexible in their approach to resolving these and other issues as they arose. Many thanks to Sergio, Christian and their always cheerful team for their work in bringing this project to a successful conclusion, and we are very happy with the final result.
I was delighted, after having had what I felt were a few quick quotes from others, when Martin came and spent about an hour with me at the first visit – so important to me as someone with no other way of judging the likely quality of end results from different builders. I felt Rick, our builder, and Martin, made an excellent team, with Martin providing excellent communication, and calling on Rick’s extensive knowledge of the construction side, whenever I asked a question Martin was not sure about. The process of negotiating with the council to maximise the size of the deck I was allowed was also invaluable.
The uncertainties of timelines for completion were I feel well explained, and set out in the contract, and although exceeded to some extent, I was comfortable with this having to some extent been forewarned about delays with council approvals.
Likewise, with the budget, it was higher than I had anticipated but seemed reasonable for the attention being paid to the project.
I would strongly recommend Refresh Renovations to someone not quite sure of how to go about the whole process of translating their idea into reality, and as I think the photos show, along with favourable comments from neighbours, the excellent end result is witness to the value of the careful, unhurried thought and planning which Martin and Rick put into every step along the way.
Refresh Renovations did the best renovation on my flat - so creative, so well-priced, so precise and careful and with so much kindness and professionalism. And on time and to budget. All of their team members are expert at what they do - design, colours, electrical, building, plumbing, floorboards etc, and Refresh really listen to what you want and what you can afford and advise you accordingly. Very, very highly recommended. I would give more than 5 stars if I could.

Matt helped us access various tradespeople in a very efficient and seamless manner. Took a lot of stress out of a renovation involving a number of parties. Very easy to communicate with, good knowledge and very responsive. Thank you!
Recently we contracted Refresh Renovations and Martin to compile a mapping of all the area around the building. We asked for the mapping to show all the areas we intend to have irrigation installed in. We also wanted all the other existing infrastructure, car parks, pathways, drains, Stormwater. ventilation outlets, pool and surrounds etc included. We also required drop-down files in various formats.
We are very happy with the plans and files that have been done. They were always very helpful in making any changes we required during the process.
I am happy to recommend them in their service and professionalism.
We were really impressed with Leigh, Refresh Renovations East & South East territory, and all his assistance as we enquired about renovations. He was prompt in communication, clear in the process and professional in all aspects of our dealings.
I can't recommend Guy and Refresh Renovations highly enough! From the initial discussions through to the finished renovation, Guy delivered on the promises. The renovation was delivered on time, on budget and the quality of workmanship is second to none. Michelle and I had high expectations in terms of what we wanted and I'm happy to say our expectations were exceeded.
We are very happy with the outcome of our bathroom renovation despite Covid-19 intervening close to final fit-out. Steve and Nadine listened to our requests and the finished result was excellent. Communication was great throughout the whole process. We liked the fact that they engaged some local tradesmen as well as from their team. We would certainly recommend Steve Roper from Refresh Renovations.
Lovely extension and deck. Heroic work through appalling weather. Good price. Some communication/coordination issues but Sergio got all snags fixed without quibbles.
We recently used Saleem and his team for a total renovation of our 2 bedroom unit. We found the entire process exceeded our expectations and the project was well managed and completed on time - it was a tight timeline of 3 months to have it move-in ready. The workmanship of all the trades involved was of a high standard. At all stages through the process, there was clear communication, a common-sense approach, regular meetings and with the customer portal that you get access to, we could always see the total costs, change requests, approvals and the timeline. We would definitely use Saleem and his team again for future projects as he really made the entire process stress free for us and delivered an amazing result.
