Specialists

Most builders focus on building new homes, and only do renovations as a sideline. The Renovation Team at First National is different because it specializes in renovations - it’s all they do, and they love it. What’s more, the skills and processes needed for renovations are quite different from building a new home. That’s another great reason to choose a specialist renovation company like First National

One point of contact for the entire renovation. Tradespeople, designers, engineers and regulators all speak different languages. A Project Manager is someone who can act as your ‘interpreter’ throughout your renovation. They will explain what’s involved, what you should expect, and the pros and cons of different decisions. Throughout your project, you’ll have the benefit of their renovation knowledge and experience – and it’s all included as part of the First National service!
