Are you putting up with damaged decks and broken fences?

Luxury bungalow renovation
The Artbuild team is proud to have renovated some of Auckland’s most beautiful bungalows. Working with our trusted surveyors and architects, or your own, we can help you to create the perfect space for a growing family, entertaining or just chilling.
We are happy to work alongside your favourite interior designer to create harmony from the inside out; our craftsmen take instruction well and have plenty of experience to suggest alternative construction methods or materials if structural problems inhibit your original choices.
Bed, bath and beyond
Previous Artbuild clients will happily recount their experiences of working with us on their bedroom renovations, installation of ensuite bathrooms and general modernisation of their bungalow. We have many repeat clients who enjoy regular upgrades to their property; it’s definitely a feel-good factor to sit back with a large pile of interior design magazines and decide which room to refresh next!
Timber cladding, decks and fencing
What could be more relaxing than sipping a cool drink on your tidy deck in the glorious Auckland sunshine?
Timber cladding looks stunning on bungalows when it’s properly maintained and appropriately weather treated. But many homeowners suffer problems with rot and don’t know where to turn.
Artbuild has a team of specialist joiners and carpenters who can magically transform your outdoor space.
Repairing Water Damage
Flooding and water damage can wreak havoc on timber, espcially if you were unaware that there was a slow leak from faulty plumbing. Our team can identify the cause of the problems, treat any damp or rot and replace any structural walls, wooden beams, ceilings or flooring.
Artbuild will project manage your entire bungalow renovation, which includes appointing any structural engineers and building surveyors we deem necessary to ensure your refurbishment complies with the Building Code. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way, so you can be an active part of the chosen solution.
Restoration and modernisation
We are proud to have worked on heritage properties across Auckland, and across the world. Artbuild’s founder Zed has personally transformed some of the most beautiful palaces in Italy, so you know we will take outmost care in your home.
Considerate tidy builders? Yes, really.
Our team take health and safety seriously; you won’t see us balancing on your pitch roof or leaving piles of rubble in the lounge for you to trip over. We keep the work area tidy and clean up at the end of the day, so you can stay in your bungalow while the renovation is happening.
The sky’s the limit!
Well, almost! We build roof extensions, skylights, install large picture windows, fit ranchslider doors… we really can help convert your tired dreary space into a bigger brighter reality. Ready to get stuck in? Call us for a friendly chat and we’ll arrange a site survey (and a cuppa).
We kick things off with a free phone consultation to hear about your renovation goals followed by a meeting with Founder & Lead Home Builder, Zed, to discuss the project in further detail and inspect the property. The concept design will be carried out by an architect – we can recommend one of our trusted experts if you don’t have one assigned – and we’ll draft an initial budget proposal. When both concept drawings and cost estimates are signed off, the architect will create working drawings. This is followed by a detailed quote and tailored master builder contract.
BUILD & MANAGE
Now the contracts are signed, financing is secured and schedules are confirmed, the construction work can begin! We will manage the entire renovation project through to completion, keeping you up to date with weekly on-site progress meetings where we can discuss any challenges or adjustments which may need to be made. Our expert team will also conduct regular quality control checks to ensure high standards.
HANDOVER & ENJOY
Once the renovation is complete, we have the property professionally cleaned so that it’s ready for you to settle into. We’ll have a handover meeting to discuss all of the functionality – from heating controls to lighting operation – to make sure that you feel comfortable and confident. You’ll also receive a file with any relevant documents and information regarding your project such as instruction manuals, warranties and reference photos for plumbing etc. Then all that’s left is for us to do is hand over the keys so that you can enjoy your new home!
Hear what some of our past clients have to say about working with Artbuild...
Adam and Philip hired us to fully renovate a 'do-up' house they bought to resell, whereby the downstairs was not being used to its full potential. We carried out a full house renovation, added an ensuite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe, plus added a ranchslider for indoor-outdoor flow. "Looking back, it was a very easy and smooth process, it was easy to deal with the team and during the construction process, there was never a big mess. The final product I was really impressed by."
Luxury Villa Renovation in Parnell
Felicity Morgan Rhind has used Artbuild to renovate her beautiful villa in Parnell, Central Auckland. Renovations included building walls, fitting doors, painting, plastering, general maintenance and removing the decking when her cat got stuck! "When Zed was working here you felt he was just working here, he wasn’t trying to do million other things. His focus was on us and getting our job done swiftly."
Renovation of damp house in Avondale
Greg and Karina Smith from Avondale contracted Artbuild to fully renovate an old, damp and cold house that had been neglected for 50 years. Building work included structural changes throughout the property. We installed quality insulation, which brought an end to their daughter's asthma symptoms and improved the family's quality of living. "We’ve got a brand new house, really, in our renovation. Is not just the part of the house. It’s just so lovely and warm and easy to live in."
Full House Renovation in Glendowie
Anthony and Moira Flannery from Glendowie were introduced to Artbuild by a friend. We renovated the upper floor and downstairs bathroom. We created feature walls with lighting for artwork display, an office where structural walls were removed, undertook a full bathroom renovation and built two new walk-in wardrobes. "The entire building process was very good and very smooth. I’m an architect, so I do know how things can go wrong, but on this one, as good as you could hope for a project to go."
