Sometimes a clever renovation is preferable to brand new. This massive home project took out National Winner Supreme Renovation in the Renovations over $500,000 category at the Registered Master Builders Award.
Glover Homes is a niche building company specialising in high-end properties in the wider Auckland area. The company is involved from the foundations through to finishing works.
The multi award-winning renovation shown here was really more like a new build with only a few existing strategic walls retained, says firm owner and general manager JD Glover.
"The original four-bedroom house has been reinvented as a luxury split-level family home with six generous bedrooms and spectacular open-plan living spaces that open to sheltered outdoor areas. There is now a large office, a games room, media room, and a new pool complex, pool and tennis court. An ancillary building has also been built by Glover Homes and there has been extensive landscaping on the property.
"The project took two years to complete and is a testament to all parties involved, not least the owners who were kept informed and part of the decision process from beginning to end."
Perhaps the single most important feature on a home is its roof. For this large, multi-roofed residence, Colorsteel® pre-painted steel provided the dramatic upmarket looks and low-maintenance protection the owners required.
Laura Coffey, for New Zealand Steel, says Colorsteel roofing really is capable of handling almost anything mother nature can throw at it.
"This tried-and-true roofing product boasts our toughest paint system ever, complete with a scratch-resistant finish.
"For more than 30 years, New Zealand Steel has been monitoring, testing and refining the performance of Colorsteel in New Zealand's most extreme UV, wind, rain, snow and ice environments. As a result, today Colorsteel provides complete peace of mind for builders and owners alike," says Coffey.
And not only does it retain its integrity, it retains its good looks, too. Colorsteel's hard-wearing, baked-on paint finish has undergone long-term exposure testing to ensure enduring colour performance as well as durability.
Non-combustible, lightweight and secure, Colorsteel pre-painted steel is designed to protect this pristine home for many years to come.
roject is only as good as the quality of the materials supplied and such was the case with this Supreme Award remodel.
