Director/Project Manager

I’m John, and along with my core team, we have a combined total of over 50 years of renovation experience. We are the residential renovation experts!

We love the challenge of taking an older home and bringing it up to today’s modern styles and features while keeping the original style of Kiwi classics like bungalows and villas.

More and more people are choosing to renovate, which can be a smart option to add value and improve their own lifestyle.

We will help you throughout the process of your renovation, from design to completion. To guarantee more peace of mind, we will be happy to share with you our experiences of renovations over the many houses we have completed.

When you choose to work with Rag Reno’s, we guarantee to make the building process as easy as possible!

We will provide you with a fixed price contract to ensure there are no hidden surprise costs during your renovation. This will give you the ability to know exactly how much you are going to spend on your home.

During the renovation, you will have access to our online management software to keep you up to date in real time. You will be able to see the daily progress on your project and any choices that need to be made.

To ensure you have a quality home to enjoy for years to come, we use our quality building checklists, backed up by the 10 Year Master Builders guarantee.



We value transparent communication to keep you informed throughout your journey with us. You will have access to our project management software giving you real-time progress on site and any decisions that need to be made. We will also have a weekly onsite meeting to go over the work in progress.



We are a family owned and operated business. We bring our personal approach and family values to the build. We will personally guide and help you through the building process from design to completion.



Being a member of the master builders association of New Zealand means we can offer our clients a 10-year master builder guarantee as well as our own Rag Reno’s Guarantee.

While our insights are valuable, it’s the experiences of our clients that truly narrate the tale.
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.”



When working with us, we guarantee clear, consistent communication as well as maintaining an effective line of dialogue throughout the building process, even if you are not physically present. This is a high priority for us.

Step 1: Let’s chat and meet up

Get in touch with us and let’s see how we can help you with your building and renovating needs.

After the initial call, we will send you a small questionnaire to complete. Once you send it back to us, our Director John will personally give you a call to discuss your project and to arrange a site meeting with you. This will enable us to look at your project and you can show your ideas, sketches etc. so that we can help you create your dream exactly how you want it.

Step 2: Plans and preliminary estimate

Depending if you have pre-made plans or not we can recommend you one of our reputable and trusted architects. We will work together as a team to come up with a plan that suits your needs and budget. Once the concept plan is complete, we will be able to provide you with an initial cost estimate.

Once you have accepted this estimate, the architect will complete the working drawings and lodge your plans with the local authorities.

Step 3: Final quote

After receiving the final consented plans, we will work with our trusted partners to provide you with a full fixed price contract. This will give you the satisfaction of completely priced build.

We will present this to you in person, explaining every part in detail and answering any questions you may have.|

At this stage, we will give you the satisfaction of a completely priced build.

Step 4: Signing of paperwork

Once you are satisfied with our quote, we provide you with the following documents for signing:

  • Master Builders full building contract
  • Master Builders 10-year Guarantee
  • A copy of our Rag Reno’s Guarantee

Step 5: Construction

Once your project is underway, we will meet on-site to introduce you to your building team and site foreman from Rag Reno’s. During construction, we will schedule regular on-site meetings with you to discuss the progress.

We will liaise with the architect, local authorities, professional services, subcontractors and suppliers to provide you with regular updates about what’s happening on site.

You will be able to keep up to date in real time by accessing our online project management software. We will have everything sorted to deliver your project on time and within budget.

Step 6: Project completion and sign off

We will arrange the final inspection from the local authorities as well as all documentation to submit to the Council for the Code Compliance Certificate.

Apart from our own completion checklist, we will walk you through and around your new home to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the standard of workmanship.

At this stage, a reconciliation of your final account is presented to you for payment.

We will hand you your new keys and Gift Basket to say thank you! We know you had a choice in builders and we are glad you choose us! Enjoy your new home.


Our CEO, John, will personally conduct the session, which is normally valued at $300. However, we are offering the session FREE to people that are seriously considering building a dream home to help them make informed decisions towards the next steps.
