And construction completed in 40 days!

Timber clad 1930s home renovated with striking white deck and modern grey blue and white colour matching. Renovated under a fixed-price home renovation package.

The owners of this property were doing repairs before a sale wanted to maximise the value of the property. Jumping at the challenge, our expert team modernised the home’s layout and colour scheme as well as ensuring that any existing damage to the property was repaired before it went on the market.

We completed the whole renovation for a fixed price agreed from the start and the construction only lasted a total of 40 working days (with a lockdown in the middle!). One of the keys to the success of the project was the open line of communication between the owner and the Constructo Project Manager, which led to staying on schedule, on budget and delivering quality work.

Full Roof Replacement

Like many other homes of the same era, the old roof of this property had extensive damage and was in need of a full replacement. With great care, we removed the old concrete roof, inspected the roof trusses to ensure their structural integrity and then installed a modern, durable, ColourSteel corrugated roof which will last for decades to come.

Ceiling Replacements

Along with the roof, some of the ceilings required repairs, so the owners took the opportunity to also replace the popcorn ceiling in the dining, living and hallway. We installed downlights in the new ceilings which created a more modern and enjoyable interior atmosphere.

Interior Improvements

In addition to the installation of new downlights, we removed all the old wallpaper throughout the house and painted all internal walls with a fresh coat of paint.

We also opened up the walkway between the living and dining rooms for the ultimate open-plan living. We installed all new flooring of plush carpet and stylish vinyl.

A new laundry was installed to modernize the laundry space from the original plumbing and design.

House on Tremaine in Palmerson North. Renovated Hallway with dark carpet and white walls as well as newly installed downlights.

Exterior Improvements

Improving curb appeal was the goal with the exterior improvements. In general, the exterior cladding of the property was in good condition, so we did some minor touch-ups, cleaned and painted the exterior weatherboards in a modern, trending colour scheme.

The existing deck and timber balustrades on the house were repaired and refreshed, as well as the PVC Guttering and downpipes.  We repaired a section of fence with a broken fence post and the whole fence was painted.

Our clients were thrilled with the outcome of what we have achieved for them and are happily recommending us to their family and friends. We are very proud of our quality workmanship and efficiency on this project and have enjoyed sharing this experience with you.
