Licensed Builders

Licensed Builders

At Refresh, we take care of all the Building Consents and mandatory requirements that are needed in order to proceed with any roofing project.  As an example for all roofing jobs, a scaffold or edge protection is mandatory. This can add a significant cost to the project so we make sure this cost is factored in upfront. Virtually all roofing-work now requires licensed professionals to carry out the installation.  If you are thinking about changing a roofline or an existing roofing product on your home, Refresh will also apply for a building consent on your behalf.

Metal Roofs

Metal Roofs

The traditional galvanized corrugated iron has been superceded by alloy-coated mild steel. It's lightweight, easy to install, and comes in a wide range of colours and profiles. It is usually considered the most cost-effective roofing option.  Metal roofing materials also come as pressed tiles made from G300 grade zinc/aluminium alloy-coated mild steel in a natural stone chip or a pre-painted finish, best suited for roof pitches over 10 degrees.

Membrane Roofs

Membrane Roofs

Butyl rubber membranes are suitable only for 'flat roofs' (between one and 10 degrees). Membranes can also be used on curved roofs. They are lightweight, tensile, easy to repair and resistant to UV rays, ozone and weathering. Some products are 100 per cent recyclable thus environmentally friendly.  Butyl or the wider EPDM rubber is fitted in two sheets over a plywood or concrete substrate. They can be lap joined by rolling or 'welded' using hot air.  Torched-on bitumen products have elastic polymers and a fiberglass component for extra strength, are thicker and are joined with a naked flame leaving a seamless finish.

Concrete & Clay Roofs

Concrete & Clay Roofs

Concrete and terracotta clay tiles are extremely durable, require less maintenance than most other roofing products and are conducive to all environments and steep pitched roofs over 10 degrees. A wide range of tile colours and profiles is available.  Concrete and clay do not rust, warp or corrode. They are impervious to frost and ice and can handle high winds. The thermal mass of concrete roofs will effectively reduce heat loss. The laps in a concrete tile roof allow the roof space to breathe so moisture can escape. They are naturally inert therefore any drinking water collected from them will not contain zinc or aluminium ions.

Slate Roofs

Slate Roofs

Slate tiles are hewn from actual stone. They have been used for centuries all over the world and as such have stood the test of time in saltwater locations and extreme temperatures. Slate roofing meets building code requirement in all corrosions zones. It provides good fire protection, is low maintenance, resistant to rot and insects and can last up to 400 years.  A lighter weight and cheaper alternative to slate is synthetic slate. It's made from 80 per cent post-industrial recycled rubber and plastics. Synthetic slate tiles are at least as strong and possibly more durable than traditional slate tiles. They meet the Class C fire resistance code and can sustain winds up to 160 kilometres per hour. They require a plywood substrate and are suitable for steeper pitches.

Re-roofing Specialists

Only about 6% of homes in the UK were built during or after 2012, which means there are quite a few old bathrooms out there! Many homeowners enamoured with the charm of older homes still want the convenience of modern features, which may seem like a difficult balance to strike but we’re here to help.

Describing a bathroom as “high performance” means that form and function have been given equal consideration throughout the design. After all, a beautiful bathroom that doesn’t function properly is practically useless and, as an essential facility, what’s the point of that? The ideal bathroom features an expertly designed interior complemented by modern-day amenities.

From compact city flats to spacious country residences, our team of experienced renovation professionals is dedicated to designing a bathroom that is perfectly suited to your lifestyle needs and your home’s aesthetic.

How does Refresh help?

Though bathroom renovations are relatively small scale, there’s no shortage of challenges involved. Having completed thousands of successful renovations, we’ve seen them all and are well-equipped to face obstacles head-on. The 5-step Refresh process was designed to mitigate risks; our experienced Renovation Consultants utilise this method to deliver renovations on time and within budget.  

“From the moment Refresh Renovations came for a home visit, we knew we were in good hands. They ensured everything ran as smoothly as possible during our bathroom renovation. Refresh understood our needs and I highly recommend them. Should the need arise, we would be more than happy to use Refresh again.” - Kim, Refresh client

Transparent communication and thorough planning are at the core of our process as we believe these factors have the most significant impact on a successful renovation. But we don’t measure success solely on the results of a project. Homeowner satisfaction is a driving force behind Refresh and it’s our mission to provide a positive and stress-free experience.

A smoother bathroom renovation process

Our 5-step approach to renovations was designed to keep projects running smooth, on schedule, and within budget.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

Starting off your bathroom renovation journey with a thorough consultation gets everyone on the same page. It’s an opportunity for you to share all your ideas, big and small, with your Renovation Consultant. If you need a walk-in shower for ageing parents or an extra tub for washing your dog, now is the time to let us know!

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

Once you’ve shared your goals, you and your Renovation Consultant will review concept designs to determine what’s achievable. You may find that you need to make tweaks to come in under budget, or that you can make some unexpected upgrades such as opting for a marble vanity. Regardless of what they may be, this is a great stage in the process to make changes to your bathroom design.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Working drawings are the next step. They differ from concept drawings because they take into account the functionality of your design and focus on aspects such as structural integrity and architectural engineering. You’ll always be in control, but to avoid additional expenses and delays further along, this is when you want to make any changes to the plans as it’s the last step before building begins. If no further alterations are necessary, you’ll be presented with a fixed quote and contract to sign off on before moving forward.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Now is when you get to sit back and watch your bathroom take shape. Reliable contractors and trusted tradespeople, coordinated by your Renovation Consultant, will transform your existing space into the bathroom you've been dreaming of. If any unexpected issues arise, you can rest assured they’ll be dealt with promptly and with minimal disruption to your daily routine.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

That’s it! Your renovation is finished! Alongside your fantastic new bathroom, your Renovation Consultant will provide you with the necessary council documentation. A completed Code of Compliance certificate is required to prove that all craftsmanship was completed to a high standard. Keep that somewhere safe, and then enjoy your new bathroom!

What are popular bathroom design styles in the UK?

This is a list of some of the common design styles that we are seeing in our projects across the UK:

  • Classic Contemporary: Classic contemporary style interiors are curated, minimal, and uncluttered. This style focuses on refined elegance, where handcrafted, quality-made pieces, deliberate use of colour and texture, and attention to detail combine to achieve sophistication and timeless beauty.
  • Modern Traditional: Modern Traditional combines the classic shapes and vintage appeal of traditional decor, with the clean lines and simplistic hues of contemporary furnishings. It's the balance (and it is all about the balance!) of old meets new that can make a space feel refined and elegant yet relaxed and cosy at the same time.

Do I need Buildings Regulations approval to renovate my bathroom?

In the United Kingdom, the need for a Buildings Regulations approval for a new bathroom largely depends on the extent of the work involved.

Generally, if your bathroom renovation involves structural changes, plumbing alterations, or electrical work, it is likely that you will require a building consent. This is because these changes may affect the safety, durability, and compliance of the building.

Your renovation consultant at Refresh can take care of this on your behalf during the Working Drawings and Costing stage of the process. They will be able to assess whether a building consent is required and guide you through the process to ensure compliance with the UK’s building standards.

How long does a bathroom renovation usually take in the UK?

The duration of a bathroom renovation project can vary greatly depending on a number of factors such as the scope of the project and the specific circumstances of the remodel. A minor remodel that involves primarily cosmetic changes such as painting, replacing fixtures, or updating the lighting could take a few days to a week to complete.

However, a major bathroom renovation that involves significant changes to the layout or requires extensive plumbing or electrical work could take several weeks or even months to complete. During our working drawings and costing stage of our bespoke 5-step process, we will work with you to prepare a gantt chart showing expected timeline for your bathroom remodeling project.

What factors should I consider when planning a bathroom renovation? UK

If you’re thinking about renovating your bathroom, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What design style are you drawn to? (e.g. minimalist, modern, classic)
  • Have you considered a budget? Do you need to talk to a bank or mortgage broker about finance?
  • Have you checked your calendar for the most convenient time of year to renovate your bathroom?
  • If you have only one bathroom in your house, have you considered an alternative solution whilst the bathroom is undergoing the renovation?
  • How much space is there to work with, do you need to extend or is there sufficient space available to achieve what you are looking for?
  • How much storage is required?

Having this information ready will make it that much easier to plan your bathroom remodelling project with our team.

How much does a bathroom renovation typically cost in the UK?

At Refresh, we’ve completed a range of bathroom renovations costing anywhere from around £8,000 to upwards of £30,000, each one accomplishing a different goal. Get in touch to schedule an initial briefing meeting - we can work with you through our concept and feasibility process to understand the options, ideas and costs for your project.

Copper Roofs

Copper Roofs

Like terracotta and slate, copper has an architectural legacy dating back hundreds of years. Properly installed copper meets the full building lifetime durability required by the Building Act. It's very strong and can withstand temperature extremes from minus 196 to 600 degrees Celsius. It will not melt, burn or give off toxic fumes in a house fire.  Copper, like zinc, aluminium and stainless steel, can be laid on roofs with pitches from 3 to 10 degrees depending on the profile, length and local conditions. As one of nature's trace elements it's 100 per cent recyclable and impermeable to contaminants from the external environment. Copper is also a natural inhibitor to bacterial growth and is essential to health and diet, so makes an ideal surface for tank water collection.

Asphalt Roofs

Asphalt Roofs

Asphalt shingles are one of the fastest growing roofing choices on the market. They are made from fibreglass-reinforced asphalt with non-combustible fibres and a ceramic-coated metal or stone chip surface. Resistant to corrosion and rot, they can weather harsh conditions and are generally low maintenance. Some heavier weight shingles boast warranties of 25 plus years.  A 15 to 18 degree pitch is recommended as a minimum, but with special installation procedures they can be laid to pitches as low as 10 degrees. They are installed over a plywood substrate (with stainless nails and a bitumen based adhesive/sealant) and can be physically bent into shape to provide workable solutions for complex roof profiles.

Timber Roofs

Timber Roofs

Timber shakes and shingles are similar products cut from treated or naturally durable timbers. Shingles are tapered with relatively smooth front and back faces; shakes have a more textured, rustic surface than shingles. While most timber shakes and shingles are imported western red cedar, you can also get locally produced first grade ACQ-treated radiata pine products. Both provide low maintenance durability with low thermal and moisture movement properties.  Timber shakes and shingles may have a limited lifespan of between 7 and 10 years in damp conditions, but will last much longer in a drier climate. They can be laid on 18 degree or steeper pitches (25 to 30 degree pitches are best for effective water dispersion).
