Choosing The Right

The first question you should ask your
Renovator is:
“Are you a Registered Builder?”
If they answer YES, you are in good hands.

Renovating With Ease


With any  renovation, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes to ensure your renovation is not only beautiful, but functional and safe as well.

Mistakes and poor DIY workmanship can not only spoil the look of your renovation, but they can also cause major structural and usability problems long-term which can cost a fortune to fix!

So, it pays to find the right renovator.

Here are three key questions to ask your prospective renovator:

Q1. Are you a registered building practitioner?

Q2. Are you fully insured?

Q3. Do you use contracts that offer me warranty insurance & legal protection under the State’s domestic building laws?

Our Happy Client Renovation Reviews

“Very easy to deal with and we wanted to say a BIG thank you for the outstanding works completed on our bathroom makeover and renovation. Very professional service and we will be in touch later this year for our kitchen renovation!“

Hilda & Kevin – Bathroom Renovation, Montrose

Cannot recommend Martin James Builders highly enough – Bernie and the team renovated a bathroom en-suite for us and the finished room looks excellent. Great communication and quality of work from the whole team.”

Domenic & Mary Ann – Bathroom Renovation, Lilydale.

“Of the many projects we have had done to our house this was by far one of the best companies we have ever worked with. The renovation team was great and all the trades were professional and always on time. I should say this review is well overdue, we did this renovation two years ago, during COVID and it still looks so new and refreshing – fantastic work!”

Alister & Louisa – Home Renovation, Doncaster

“Bernie was great and explained everything from start to finish clearly and succinctly. I would definitely recommend Martin James Builders. Our bathroom makeover came out more beautiful than we thought. Thank you so much.”

Julie & Family – Bathroom Renovation, Mooroolbark

“After 15 years, our bathroom was looking very tired, old and outdated. It was time for an upgrade and renovation. Bernie from Martin James Builders came out and gave us some help, advice and some great ideas from day one of the renovation Bernie and his team were such a pleasure to work with. The quality of the work carried out is faultless and the final result is a stunning new bathroom.
We love our new bathroom and would highly recommend Martin James Building Projects for any renovation work”.

Jacinta H – Rowville

“We cannot recommend Bernie and his team at Martin James Builders more highly. They were friendly & efficient and were very helpful in helping us plan our total kitchen renovation. When a problem arose, as it sometimes does with older houses, we were treated incredibly honestly and fairly. We are so grateful we chose to have our renovation done by such a reputable firm. We are more than happy with the new kitchen.”

Brian & Gertie – Kitchen Renovation, Ringwood East
