A few of our most popular requests for home renovations include:
Whether you’re adding a new bathroom or renovating one, a remodelled bathroom is a great way to add value to your home. Homeowners today want much more out of bathrooms than they did in the past. Especially in the master suite, homeowners are looking for an almost spa-like experience, with beautiful tiling, interesting fixtures, larger baths and spas and showers and more. There are so many more options available on the market than ever before—at a wide range of price points—so there’s never been a better time to hire Symcorp, the "bathrooms renovations Gold Coast" expert, to renovate one or more of your bathrooms.
We offer a 10 year guarantee on all our water proofing work.
Waterproofing generally lasts around 10 years but house movements can cause fibreglass showers to crack. Over time water seeps into your walls, other rooms and through to the sub-floor. When that happens it's time for a bathroom renovation!
What happens is that the timber under your tiles and waterproofing layers starts to rot and will need to be ripped out and replaced. The presence of moisture in your walls and floors is a beacon for termites and unless your home has a termite protection system in place you could be in for extensive and costly repairs. Termites might be small but the can wreak massive havoc on homes, particularly here in South East Queensland where 1 in 3 homes will suffer from termite attack and damage.
And, if you get your home protected from termite attack you get a guarantee on that as well. Note: we are not in the business of pest control but we can recommend a reliable termite professional for you to use.
Should your renovation plans call for relocation of your wet areas, that’s not a problem for us. Want to put in a spa bath where your shower is now and then move the shower? Just ask.
Top Bathroom Renovation Trends
Regardless of the size of your budget, you’ll be amazed to discover the possibilities in style, materials and features available today for today’s bathroom.
Here are a few of the biggest trends we’re seeing:
Sinks. If your bathroom still has a basic porcelain or ceramic top-mount sink, replacing it is one way to give your bathroom a new, more sophisticated look.
That’s not to say top-mount sinks—the kind with a lip that extends over the counter-top—don’t have advantages, including a lower installation cost. On the other hand, for a sleeker style, under-mount sinks are fast growing in popularity. And if you plan to put your house on the market sooner or later, it’s a small investment for a more up-to-date look.
Other options include pedestal sinks, perfect when space is limited, and the “vessel” sink—an avant-garde look in which the sink sits directly on top of the counter-top, like a bowl. Vessel sinks come in just about any material you can think of that holds water, including ceramic, stainless steel, glass and stone.
Counter-tops. Laminate used to be the standard, and it still has its fans. Laminate counter-tops available today are a lot better looking than they used to be, with many designed to mimic natural stone.
But if your budget is tight, there are other inexpensive options that look and feel richer while creating a more up-to-date style. Tile counter-tops, while nothing new, have a clean, classic look and are easy to install. Meanwhile, “solid surfacing” is a man-made product that can mimic almost any stone, with the same sleek feel. It’s also stain and bacteria/mould resistant.
On the higher end are natural stones like granite and marble, while quartz counter tops cost a bit less and provide one of the most durable surfaces on the market. And for a more adventurous look, concrete and stainless steel are gaining in popularity.
Bathtubs and showers. When space is a factor, tub/shower combinations are the standard—but there is still great variation in the look you can create. Some homeowners choose a stand-alone bathtub and simply add a shower nozzle, provided you have a curtain or glass panel(s) to keep the water in. Others prefer the shower head installed in the wall, but you can still create a unique look by installing a single glass panel for the shower end of the tub, leaving the rest open to create a more expansive feel.
If you have space for a separate stand-alone shower—or choose a shower in lieu of a bathtub—full-glass enclosures are all the rage, while others opt for a built-in shower accented with a frame-less or semi-frame-less shower screen.
With so many options available and decisions to make, it helps to have a contractor who will take the time to answer any questions you have. We have built and remodeled a wide variety of bathrooms at all price ranges and can help you sort out the choices to create the bathroom of your dreams.
Homeowners regularly tell us that their beautifully renovated and remodelled kitchen makes the whole house feel new. As with bathrooms, there are so many more options available in terms of benchtops, fixtures and cutting-edge amenities for the kitchen than ever before—so whether you want to update a little or a lot, we’d love to help you build the kitchen of your dreams.
Aside from updating/replacing cabinets, benchtops, paint colors and other aesthetic details, trends also include knocking out walls to create wide-open spaces between the kitchen and dining or family room. Homeowners are embracing the notion of a kitchen that truly is the heart of the home. Whether you’re a serious cook or more of a take-out aficionado, the kitchen often sets the tone for the whole house.
At the same time, we understand that kitchen renovation represents not only an investment of money but time, and we know that temporarily losing your kitchen to renovation work is a major inconvenience. That’s why our project management is second to none in making sure the work gets done efficiently and always on schedule in order to get you back in your fabulous new kitchen as soon as possible.
Are You On A Budget? Consider Kitchen Cupboard Re-Facing
For approximately two thirds of the price of a complete kitchen re-fit, we can give your kitchen a face-lift by simply replacing the bench tops, doors and front panels. Your kitchen will look brand new and, if you’re considering putting your home on the market this is a cost effective option that will improve the value of your home to potential buyers.
When you have changes in your family or lifestyle, you may find that your home isn’t meeting your existing needs like it used to. Maybe you have a new baby and need extra space. Or maybe it’s the opposite—the kids have left the house, and now you want fewer bedrooms but more space for entertaining friends.
The home renovations we perform range from room-to-room renovations to re-configuring entire floor plans or adding a new story. Some clients buy homes because they like the lot and neighborhood but know from the outset the home itself does not fit their needs, requiring a complete overhaul. Others have lived in their home for years and simply want to give it a new, updated look and improved functionality. Whatever the reason, we’ll help you figure out what’s feasible, draft plans, create a timetable, and execute the precise home renovation you want and need.
A request we frequently get, particularly from property investors, is for a bathroom and a kitchen renovation combination. Updating these two rooms at the same time can often be profitable for the investor. We love doing these two rooms together and we love the extra challenges it brings with coordinating tradies and materials.
Today’s homeowners are going beyond the walls of their home to create outdoor living spaces for relaxation, entertaining and enjoying the open air. Adding decks and/or pergolas—or renovating the outdoor spaces you already have—is a great way to do that. While requests range from the simple to the elaborate, new outdoor decking and additions including pergolas, benches and other built-ins often have the added advantage of opening up your living space for far less expense than adding interior rooms. That makes it a great value for improving a home for your own enjoyment as well as resale.
We have a lot of experience in helping clients find creative ways to use these outdoor spaces. Many homeowners are adding or expanding decks to create outdoor connections between different rooms or areas of the home, while others are setting them farther out to create new spaces that become private escapes from the home proper—a great place to host an intimate dinner or just to enjoy a nap or read a good book. Along with helping to draft a plan, we will also help educate you from the outset about the pros and cons of different decking materials available and what might work best for your intended use and the budget you have in mind.
Pergolas, too, are a huge trend, and the sky’s the limit. They are design features that can completely change and enhance the feel of a new or existing outdoor space—from clean and modern to rustic and cozy. Depending on how you want to use the space, you can have as much sunlight or shade as you desire. We always encourage homeowners who are interested in adding pergolas to browse magazines or the Internet—they’re always inspired by the many ideas they find, and no matter what you’re looking for, we can make it happen.
South East Queensland homes are vulnerable to termite attack. Unfortunately we’ve seen our fair share of the damage these little blighters can cause, even experienced it ourselves in an investment home we own.
If your Gold Coast or Tweed Heads home has been damaged by termite infestation, give us a call and we’ll quote on the job. I’m sure you’ll be happy with our prices and our professionalism!
As a full-service construction company, we are experienced in a full spectrum of home repairs to keep your home in great shape for years to come. In Australia, however, one particular area of concern for our clients is termite damage. Unfortunately, due to our particular climate, certain species of termites love Australia—and they may love your home, too. (There’s even a popular saying you might have heard: “There are two types of homes in Australia: those that have termites, and those that will get termites.)
Termites can cause major structural damage, including floor and ceiling supports, posts of all kinds and more. In some cases, the first signs of damage are in wood paneling, decking or even furniture.
Let us be the first call you make if you see signs of damage and suspect termites. The earlier the problem is caught, the less costly the repairs can be—but even damage that’s been occurring over a long period can be fully repaired with an expert team familiar with the problem. And the risks are simply too high to trust a termite-damage repair job to anyone else.
