Cinderella of real estate – Papatoetoe house renovation
Renovating old homes in below-average conditions brings many challenges. Still, projects like that are certainly one of the most rewarding ones. In four weeks only, Maintain to profit South East Auckland transformed this Papatoetoe run-down home into a beautiful, full of character residence. The owner has initially started the renovations himself, but his work commitments didn’t allow for spending the time needed for a project like this. By getting Ramin and his team involved, he got the work done much faster and professionally. We also helped him with unlocking the true potential of his home.   Gaining another bedroom By partitioning the area, which used to be a kitchen, we created a 3rd bedroom – a huge gain for the house value. The new kitchen was installed in the living areas without compromising on the living room’s space. The open-plan living area connects seamlessly to the kitchen and dining areas and creates an ultimate entertaining space. As always, we stuck with using quality, long-lasting materials, the kitchen cabinets are made of solid melamine MDF with an engineered benchtop and quality German-made hardware. Preserving the character The beauty of this house is definitely in character features you can find all over the place. The small stool located in the corridor designed for polishing shoes, the decorative skirting, and of course, the ornamental ceilings all add to the beauty of this character home.

South Auckland family home renovation

South Auckland family home renovation
After spending many happy years living in their beautiful home in south Auckland, the owners have decided it was time to renovate and modernize their house interior. Being a busy working couple, they were looking for a turnkey renovation and decided to put their renovation into our hands. The house has had its kitchen and bathroom makeover done quite recently, so this renovation’s focus was all bedrooms, hallways, and living areas. Flooring We have removed the original carpet and tiles and installed laminate flooring through hallways, the living room, and a poolroom. Laminate flooring is an excellent choice if you want a high-end hardwood look but need something more durable for pets and kids. It’s installed on PSA Sound Absorbing underlay designed to dampen sounds and insulate the floors simultaneously. The owners love their pets and appreciated the fact that laminate is a much better choice against scratches. The carpet was the choice for the bedroom flooring. Using a high-quality, dense underlay and 61oz carpet is the perfect recipe for long-lasting softness and warmth. Painting We have stripped wallpaper throughout the house, skim the walls and removed all imperfections, added new covings where needed, and painted all the rooms, including their doors and frames. New HWC and exterior door We have also supplied and installed a new exterior Hot water cylinder. Exterior cylinders are becoming very popular, as it’s a great way to gain more storage space previously taken by the bulky cylinder. We have also supplied and installed a new back entrance door and a laundry door. Our clients have decided to go for double glazed PVC joinery....
