Take a moment to peruse a selection of testimonials from them below.

“I employed Rag Reno’s for many jobs over the last 5 years including new builds, garage conversions, relocated houses, as well as minor and major renovations. I have been impressed with every job but was especially impressed with the outcome of a 1916 villa renovation as John has a real eye for what needs to be done without going over the top; he found solutions that were within budget but also in keeping with the style of the house. John and the team are respectful, easy to communicate with and take pride in completing all work to a high standard. They treat tenants with respect and have managed neighbours/shared driveways/other contractors with no issues. I find their pricing to be fair and transparent. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending John and his team, and will be continuing to use their services for all of my future projects.”



“We chose to work with Rag Renos because they were professional but low key, so that throughout the quoting process we didn’t feel pressured. The communication throughout the whole time was excellent, any changes noted immediately, and all figures above board and inclusive. The build was forecast to take 18 weeks. Rag Renos finished a day early and were about 2% over the original budget. This is remarkable considering that it was winter and I was out of the country for 14 of the 18 weeks. The crew really helped reduced the stress on my wife who was having to manage it on her own, and were always positive and happy on the job. When we did change our minds they were accommodating and didn’t make a big deal of it. For the first time in our lives a building company delivered what we wanted on time and on budget. I have already highly recommended Rag Renos to anyone I know who is thinking of renovating.”
