Brief on renovation

Diane contacted us via our website and we arranged to meet with her and her husband Mike to discuss their bathroom renovation.  During the conversation they advised they are planning to renovate the whole house internally, but wanted to start with the bathroom, toilet and back door entrance.  It was essential to them that we keep to the era of the house which meant we needed to keep the timber window and door frames incl. the doors.  Diane advised the layout of the bathroom was fine and worked well with the busy family but wanted to modernise the overall look and feel, so we discussed options within their budget and needs in mind.

The bathroom was stripped back to the studs and textured ceiling removed.  By doing this, we uncovered an issue where the shower was, where the floor was rotten, so it was an easy option to replace the damaged boards at this stage and fix the issue.  We suggested at this stage, instead of tiling all the walls and floor, we advised to install vinyl on floor and partly tile the wall, which provides the room with a softer feel.   

Diane and Mike requested we leave one toilet always installed/operation during the whole renovation which worked well and they are now enjoying their modernised bathroom.


After living in our house for about 20 years and no plans to move we decided to upgrade our bathroom. I set about 'googling' where to start and found Fix It so left a message on their website.  Within about 2 hours I had a reply and appointment set up to talk to Mike.  As my husband and I both work full time we don't have the time or inclination to run a project of this size.  Mike supplied a full quote along with suggestions that we found very helpful.  The work was started within a fortnight.  All the tradies were prompt and friendly and we were kept in the loop by emails from Mike on a regular basis.  Although the project went a little over time it was to our benefit so we weren't as inconvenienced.  I would recommend Fix It to my friends and we are already thinking about our lounge renovation.  Thanks Mike and team for our new bathroom.
