There has never been a better time to renovate!

Our clients love where they are living and are coming to the realisation that they can’t easily replace their property. As circumstances change and families expand and contract, we require very different needs from our home. But why move from an area that you feel connected to and go through the costly exercise of starting afresh, when you can simply renovate or rebuild to suit this new lifestyle?


We are experiencing many requests for renovations and re-building work. People are becoming more confident to invest more into their property as house values are retaining their value and even increasing in some circumstances.


As people have established some equity in their homes they are able to spend accordingly on their renovation, knowing that moving would be a far more costly exercise. In highly sought-after areas there is less risk of overcapitalising when renovating.


Unique Builders offer the following types of renovation work:


  • modernising homes, for example key areas such as kitchens and bathrooms;

  • extending size of a dwelling by either adding more bedrooms or living space;

  • raising the house to build underneath;

  • adding a second storey for extra bedroom/living/parents’ retreat;

  • building a stand-alone granny-flat;

  • building new decks or extending existing decks and patio areas for more dedicated entertainment areas;

  • incorporating dedicated barbecue/pizzas areas in outdoor spaces;

  • opening up internal spaces to allow better integration between spaces;

  • linking inside and outside spaces for all-weather living.


The overall result allows people increased enjoyment of their lives.


Renovations or additions involve extending or restructuring your existing home



  • A good option if you like your current location

  • If your home is in a popular area there is less risk of over capitalising

  • Usually cheaper than buying or building a new home

  • You may not need to relocate during minor renovations

  • A well-planned renovation can match all requirements of a new house

  • For character homes, you can retain period features whilst modernising facilities

  • Modernising your home will make it more energy efficient and easier to maintain



  • May not match your exact requirements

  • You must work within constraints of existing building and land

  • May be more difficult to contain costs


In some instances, where renovating is not the best option, rather than trying to fix an unworkable floor plan or update a sub-standard building by extending or raising an existing house, it can be easier and cheaper to start with a clean slate. Rebuilding allows people to choose a new home design to suit their needs, rather than trying to modernise an older home.
