Renovation Guide

Looking to begin a renovation journey? Great move! Renovations are an exciting opportunity to bring personal style and flair into a living space, while making it functional and tailored to exact needs. Smith & Sons understands that along with excitement, it is common to experience a mix of nerves and self-doubt especially when considering the commitment and investment involved in a home renovation project.



The fear of making mistakes looms large, ignited by tales of unreliable builders, poor workmanship, budget overruns and endless delays. Yet, delve deeper, and it’s frequently found that flawed preparation or execution was the root cause of these nightmares.

Smith & Sons are aware of the complexities involved in making renovation decisions. As premier home renovation specialists serving Australia and New Zealand, it brings over 15,000 successfully completed projects to the table. Each renovation is approached with a deep understanding of its uniqueness, rejecting the notion of a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, Smith & Sons implement a tailored approach, guiding through key steps essential for achieving the desired outcome.
