Alterations and additions
In houses of all ages, sizes and characters we enlarge your living or storage spaces to suit your requirements and your home's style. Whether it's a substantial extension at the rear, an entire new storey or just an attic conversion, we will ensure the work is carried out professionally and on budget.
We remove internal and external walls of all materials such as timber-framed gyprock, stone, brick and other materials including load-bearing beams and other overhead support. We then focus on restoring the surrounding area to make it appear as if the wall was never there.
If you've always wanted a cool basement we can safely remove the earth and rock under your existing house using excavation machinery if access permits, or hand excavation (yes, jackhammers, shovels and buckets!). We also cater for subsoil drainage which can create real problems if not taken into account.
Renovating the fabric of your home is vital to keeping it in good condition as it ages. Relaying floors, replacing exterior cladding, replacing and/or matching windows of timber or aluminium are smaller but no less important and quality work will last like you expect it to.
Kitchens and bathrooms
Without a doubt the most intricate renovations are kitchens and bathrooms. This is where a professional building firm can turn the potential for a frustrating and drawn-out experience into a constructive and satisfying project. Our plumbers, cabinetmakers and contractors are top-notch and very experienced in their work, so you can be sure of a superior result.
Decks, pergolas and patios
A great way to improve the use of your back yard, our decks and pergolas will look great with your house whatever its style. They also need to be built to last and cope with the elements. Substandard decks can be a safety hazard in the longer term.

Not only was Scott's quote reasonable but he went out of his way to make the entire building process simpler for us. From dealing with Council, to advice on the build, he saved us a lot of time and money as the renovation progressed. We couldn't recommend his workmanship more highly and our entire experience was nothing but positive. Next time we build, we'll be going straight back to Buildwyse.
