How much will my renovation cost?


We understand how important your renovation budget is and how the project costs will drive your decisions. But as all homes are different and all renovation projects are different so It’s difficult to provide you with renovation costs without knowing more about your project.


We would love to book a consultation with you to go through the details of your home renovation so we can run through estimated pricing and talk about the details that can make a difference to your renovation budget.


Give our office a call to book in a consultation today.

When are you ready? JDL Construction are selective with the projects we take on to ensure our clients are getting the absolute best service throughout the renovation journey.


However, with a 20+ strong team of permanent employees working together both onsite and, in the office, we are able to run projects concurrently meaning your wait time is less but you still get the benefit of a customised and dedicated service.

Will I have to move out while my house is being renovated?


Yes. While moving out of your home may seem like a chore, it provides multiple benefits and allows for a much smoother renovation journey.


Our team are able to get in and transform your home while you are not inconvenienced on a daily basis with constant changes, noise from power tools and machinery and dust and debris that is unavoidable when it comes to renovations.


Moving out while your renovation is taking place is the safest option for your family. And moving back in will be all the more rewarding once your house transformation is complete.
