Renovations & Alterations

Are you looking to add that extra to your home, restore its features or enhancing it's appearance and function, for you and your family?

From historic cottages of the late 1800s, turn of the century Villas, to contemporary 1970s homes, and the new century modern day construction, we have significant experience in all forms of restoration and renovation. Character Builders specialise in renovations of any scale and style, with dynamic teams of builders adept at tackling the challenges of restoration and renovation.

20 Years Experience

With over 20 years of renovation work, we have developed a solid reputation for getting the details right.

Some years ago, Character Builders coined the term “Sympathetic Restoration”. It’s what we love to achieve and not that difficult when you know what you’re looking for.
We want to walk away from your home extension or alteration with barely a trace of it having been changed, where the demarcation between the old and the new is not obvious, it’s “sympathetic” and knits in naturally and completely in a way that is authentic and discreet.

Every situation is unique

Of course, every situation calls for a different approach, and you might be a person who enjoys the juxtaposition of old and new…well this is a challenge we love too, it’s all in the planning, the communication, and the workmanship.

Come to us with your ideas, no matter how loose or well formulated, and we will connect you with our design personnel to explore the options and prepare your plans.

Adaptable and flexible

You may even have your own designer, or completed plans – we are very happy to start from this point, work through the process of pricing, provide you a fixed price contract and assist you through the various stages of preparation and construction.

Whatever your building needs; from small repairs and modifications, through to large scale alterations and restoration, Character Builders are right for your renovation or restoration project.
