Home Renovation & Extension
| Client Reviews |
I was nervous to embark on building a new home. After the initial meeting at Addstyle, however, the nerves turned to excitement. They are not only master builders but master listeners. They took our vague ideas and turned them into a carefully planned, implemented (and much improved) reality. From design through selections and into construction I was impressed with their attention to detail and friendly advice. Tricky problems with implementation were quickly solved. This confidence and calm determination is why I would recommend Addstyle to my friends. Even when I was freaking out with the details they were there to help. Another plus is their relationship with skilled and friendly trades. I met one of my future neighbours who said the build team was the best he has seen. When he walked past they were friendly and seemed to be enjoying the work. So thank you very much to the Addstyle team. My family and I really appreciate the effort and care you put into our home.

I was introduced to Addstyle through one of their young architects who bought a guitar from me! I was considering building a small home studio on a spare bit of land I had behind my garage. He recommended Addstyle for the sort of project that i envisaged. The decision was sound. Between Joe, the architect, and myself we concocted the best way to use the available space. The construction team headed by Simon Hill and John Peacock proved to be very helpful and flexible. The workmanship was excellent and the contractors considerate and friendly. The project was completed on time and the site was left tidy. Some areas of the contract were ambiguous, however Addstyle did everything in their power to make me happy with the finished result. The whole team is very professional , including the Dee and the rest of the office staff. Special thanks go to Simon for being always available and personally taking care of any misunderstandings. Good company!!
I feel compelled to commend you on the team of roof carpenters you have working on the building next door to my place in Busselton. What a fine group of young men who work diligently, appear to care about the accuracy of their craft, also appear to be very happy and get on well with each other.
Importantly I have not heard a swear word out of any of them, after our own experiences, we know this is rare.
Even their music is pleasant and certainly not annoying. Congratulations and good work is not luck.

Addstyle did our kitchen renovation earlier this year in our Claremont house! I was blown away with the service from their tradies and the site supervisor. Addstyle understood from the very beginning the image we wanted to create and it was so well delivered. The workmanship was second to none. I highly recommend such a professional company to anyone that is a little hesitant of renovating.
Andy and Louise, Capel
What an experience ! My wife and i reached a stage where we were deliberating between relocating or reinvesting and decided to bring some life back into our family home and renovate. Addstyle were magnificent, from the initial consultation, patience of Rob with walking through the possibilities to seeing the proposed end result with a virtual reality experience !
Addstyle were incredibly understanding and provided great patience even when we ran aground with our initial finance and had to seek another institution ! There was always ongoing encouragement and support.
We were guided through our prestart with the knowledge and experience of Dee, who made the final touches and considerations a breeze.
We had trepidation about the what was going to happen, how it was going to look, if we had picked the right choice of tiles, cabinets, but from the go it was full on. We had taken the punt to renovate all the wet areas at once, which meant relocating to a temporary kitchen, bathroom and toilet, to provide the shortest of time of the works.
Demolition and Construction – Addstyle did not disappoint in any area, under the watchful eye and leadership of Simon, all matters were completed, with constant feedback and consideration of us, Simon was a joy to work with, nothing was ever too much trouble (even travelling the state to pick our personal bathroom orders!). We were kept regularly informed of the proposed works, contractors and who expected when. The contractors were absolutely fabulous, and maintained the respect and consideration of our home (as we were still living in here), completed their tasks and maintain a really clean site, in fact the most cleanest builders i have ever met !
Everything ran to schedule, and without a hitch, even the little grumbly issues that pop up along the way with building were quickly addressed and sorted out.
We are absolutely delighted with the finished product and Addstyle were magnificent in their role and provided a top class finish. We are so pleased and have no reservations in recommending anyone to go and see the fabulous Addstyle team !
Thank you to Rob, Dee and of course Simon, our go to man for absolutely everything, you all have made such a difference to our home !!!
Ted and Marie, Churchlands
Extremely happy with the new look. Overall, an enjoyable experience, especially considering the challenges we gave the Construction Team. A pleasure to meet these friendly, flexible & efficient individuals.
F Harvey, Menora
Addstyle was the last on my list as I searched and got got several quotes from other builders to carry out an extension to our very old and treasured home. I walked the streets of Menora and having seen their work I thought they would be far from my budget. After my first consult with Simon I was sold!
The experience with Addstyle has been a very positive and the final finish product has surpassed all our expectations. The build has not interfered with our life and we have found ALL Addstyle staff have gone far beyond to create such beautiful extension. Rede has been a huge support to me and his knowledge and expertise has made my life easier. Nothing has been too much for him to do. I would also like to mention Dee and thank her for all her help to get this project on its way.
From my initial meeting with Simon Pullen to my daily contact with Rede I hold Addstyle in the highest regard as a builder, workman ship, contractors etc will recommend them to anyone. The feed back from family, friends and strangers to the finished renovation make me very glad I chose Addstyle and I will continue to use them to complete my home.
K Ranson, Alfred Cove
Best Reno team in Perth! They converted my single garage into an amazing laundry/scullery and the end result is fantastic. The service was next to none from the initial design stage, through the building and construction stage and to handover. All the staff and tradesmen we’re exceptionally helpful and went over and above to make this process smooth and efficient. Thank you for such a great service and probably the best laundry in Perth.
A J Parker, Salter Point
Our renovations were quite small, a few rooms with a powder room upstairs to accommodate a growing family. From design to Practical Completion the team at Addstyle were very attentive. The design was smart and fit our needs exactly, plus we got some great improvement ideas for modifying the original build which we took up.
Now the difficult bit…. The build… I can say all trades were extremely courteous and respectful. Plus without exception did quality work. We are a family of 5 and stayed living in the house during the build so I cannot say how important the trades behaviour was. I cannot speak highly enough of the site supervisor (Rede McMillan) who had the difficult job of keeping the job moving, keen eye on quality and dealing with me on a regular basis. Especially in the lead up to Christmas he and his team pulled out all stops to reach PC before the break. We got our house back into some order and expand our living space again after 17 weeks.
We are really happy with the quality of the build (which at the end of the day is what you are left with after you get over the stress of the disruption). The surprise outcome is living space where the stairs were placed, it was never meant to be a feature of the build, purely an access to new rooms upstairs. So we ended up with a bonus utility room which the stairs add an interesting feature. Only one more thing to sort out and that is my wife’s much wanted loft space for in roof storage. Then the renovations will be complete. There were a few minor issues during the build as you would expect but Rede’s (and Addstyle) response was outstanding and these were dealt immediately and respectfully. Will definately enjoy the changes to the house and extra room. From design and through construction I can certainly recommend Addstyle. Great team & good quality build.
So unbelievably happy as I have now moved back into my renovated house and am totally amazed at the final transformation.
The design team have done a stunning job in changing the internal structure of the living areas, kitchen and ensuite. When I walk into the front door it is as though I am in a totally new house. My dealings with the Pre start Consultant Dee have always been so positive. She guided me through the process of choosing colours and items. She was so capable and her advice was invaluable. Each week I was sent an email as to what was about to occur and that was excellent information to receive.
There were so many “wow” moments as the house was being rebuilt. From the initial rebuilding of the initial walls, the LED skylight, the kitchen installation and the ensuite transformation. The tradesmen were all very friendly when I visited whilst they were working. I am very impressed with their standard of work. My renovation was finished well ahead of time. My experience has been so positive and I am so pleased I chose Addstyle to complete my renovations.
Charlie, Mount Claremont
We approached Addstyle to complete our renovation after seeing and hearing about a number of their very successful projects renovating character style homes over a number of years. Right from the start, it was obvious they had stood the test of time through a difficult building cycle by delivering a quality service and product. We are very impressed with the quality of our renovation which was completed well ahead of schedule and the result is what we envisaged when we first met with Addstyle and talked through a concept. The build team and contractors, and particularly our supervisor Rede, were professional at all times and did what it took to ensure we were happy clients. I would have no hesitation in recommending Addstyle.
Margaret, Connolly (mid-construction)
Wow, what a fantastic company to be working with. Renovation part completed and all the staff and tradesmen have been so easy to deal with. From the first meeting with Simon and then seeing the plans – what a transformation was to occur. Dee has been so wonderful in guiding me through the pre-start process which as times was very overwhelming. The demolition was so quick and the walls rebuilt. The house started to look so different and it was so exciting to see the progressions. Now the “Wow” moments when I see the kitchen taking shape, the tiling nearly completed and the LED skylight – a suggestion from Addstyle – makes the bathroom so light. I would recommend this company to anyone wishing to renovate their house
Shahjahan, Southern River
We have done our second story extension by Addstyle Master Builders. We are very happy with the job they have done. The plan was done the way we wanted it by the design consultants and materials as we wanted to be used. Pre-start meeting was a smooth one, as we were struggling in selection of right materials/fittings and colours, the Contracts Administrator was very helpful and rightly selected those as per our likings. contracts Administrator was always available, friendly and took us through the journey smoothly, we appreciate it very much. The construction Engineer/Manager and the Building Supervisor were helpful and attended to all those things that we pointed out while the works were in progress. we were always kept informed about coming week work schedule, this is very unique to the Addstyle M builders.
Liam and Carol, Mount Hawthorn
We decided to use Addstyle Master Builders for our renovation project after meeting with Simon and going through a number of design changes. Their professionalism and flexibility gave us the confidence to entrust them to take our vision and make it into a reality. This was especially important to us as we were managing the project while overseas. Their strength lies in the fact that renovations is their business and they worked closely with us to maintain as much of the original 1930’s home and incorporate the new design to maintain the look and feel of the original as much as possible. The Addstyle team from back office support all the way through to the trades has been excellent to work with. In particular the Client Managers, Rebecca and Dee were just very easy and helpful all the way through the project. The Project Manager Rede was just fantastic to work with, especially coordinating the trades and was always there to help with any changes, and there were a few, to just smoothing over any issues that came up. Any problem was dealt with quickly and with often innovative solutions. The trades used by Addstyle have done a great job and always with a helpful attitude. For trades outside the Addstyle work scope we used several of their recommended ones, Above Board for flooring, Cedar West for doors and windows and Centurion Cabinets for the Kitchen. They were highly professional and the workmanship has maintained the high standards of all the other work done on the project. We would certainly recommend Addstyle Master Builders for any renovation project.
Our 1880 limestone house in Fremantle has taken on a new lease of life thanks to Addstyle’s professionalism in updating our kitchen/dining area, bathroom and laundry, as well as installing an ensuite and large roofed deck. We were particularly impressed, first, by Addstyle’s speedy and detailed response to our initial query. Second, we appreciated Addstyle’s attention to detail, from their design ideas to their workmanship in restoring the house’s ‘traditional’ features and matching up existing cornices, architraves, etc. Third, as the renovation progressed we were struck by their flexibility in dealing with the unforeseen issues that invariably arise when renovating an old ‘character’ house. Fourth, we were impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of the Addstyle people, including those with whom we had very regular contact (our supervisor Pete and client manager Dee). Overall, the project was much less stressful than we expected and we are delighted with the result.
I just wanted to say how impressed we have been with the employees of Addstyle while they were erecting a huge addition to our neighbour’s home at 37_________ Avenue in Connolly.
Despite the fact that the building took about five months and that we live in close proximity at 37a (a sub-division) and are both retired so we are home most of the time, our quality of life has not been hindered in any way. In fact the workmen that we have encountered have been friendly and polite with no loud radios blaring away!
So I wanted to congratulate you on your team.
G. O’Connor, High Wycombe
The renovations done at my property by Addstyle involved demolition, asbestos removal and the building of two new bedrooms. I was told the project would take six months and it was finished within that time. At all times I was kept up to date with what was happening via phone, text or email. Rede, who oversaw my renovation was just the best per
son to deal with, any concerns I had were dealt with straight away. It has taken another few months to get painting done, built-in robes, blinds installed and carpets laid. Over all Addstyle were an efficient and capable building company to be in charge of the changes to my home. I am very happy with Addstyles way of doing business, the way I was treated and I always recommend this company to family and friends.
Darge Family, Menora
We have built with Addstyle twice. It was important for us to have a quality builder who took pride in their work, had attention to detail and excellent client communication. Addstyle achieved all of that and more.
And they did not disappoint the second time round. The superior finish to our renovation is a reflection on Addstyle’s commitment to quality. We often receive compliments on our home and the work completed.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Addstyle Master Builders to anyone.
N. Yearwood, Hillarys
We just wanted to say a huge thankyou to all who helped in the renovation of our home.
We are thrilled with the results. The whole process was run smoothly and exceeded our expectations.
A special mention to our supervisor, whose professionalism made us feel like we were in very safe hands, nothing seemed too much and for this we are very grateful.
Once again, please accept our appreciation for making this renovation a worry-free time for us.
We will definitely recommend Addstyle to anyone we know who need renovations done.
David and Elaine, Shelley
From our initial meeting to discuss ideas, to the drawings they gave us to show us what it would look like, the final result very much exceeded our expectations.
We found Addstyle were very professional especially when it came to ensuring the safety of the foundations for the addition. As we live very close to the river water table, they also had to fill in approx. one quarter of our pool to lay
larger foundations for the building. It was never a simple renovation and was I believe one of the most difficult sites they had come across.
The supervisor was on site on a daily basis. Every detail was professionally executed & all aspects were given attention to detail including the cleanliness of the site, always.
We are extremely happy with our outcome and have already had many a happy hour in our extended (party) outdoor kitchen area. We would very happily recommend Addstyle to anyone considering building, additions or renovations. The home does not give a hint to it being a renovated property.
Richard and Jenifer, Nedlands
To whom it may concern ,
Addstyle did renovations for us to a house which was built in the 30s. This involved internal modifications and the building of a patio. This was quite complicated as the roof had to be realigned and part of the back of the house removed.
Right from the start all staff from Addstyle were helpful and professional, coming up with ideas and their expertise for us to achieve what we wanted. We have ended up with exactly what we set out to achieve at a cost we are happy with. They handled submissions to the council and work started promptly.
Special thanks must go to Luke our co-ordinator who was great to work with and who made the whole renovation run smoothly, his daily visits to the site were much appreciated and productive.
All tradesmen were friendly and their work was very professional. Afterwards the whole site was left clean and ready for us to move into. It has certainly lived up to expectations in its use and the standard of work done. We are happy to recommend their work.
W. Dyer, Karrinyup
We have recently completed a renovation with Addstyle and were very happy with both the progress of the project and the final product.
The staff and the contractors used were very professional and respectful of our privacy and personal effects.
Living in the house during the renovation was not an issue as Addstyle made sure that the intrusion was kept to an absolute minimum.
The initial design process was very thorough and we felt like we could freely discuss any ideas or changes we wanted to make.
The Supervisor made himself available whenever possible and maintained contact throughout the project advising us of what was coming up etc.
Even though our renovation was relatively small we still felt that we were given full attention and that our project was as important to the company as any other.
I would not hesitate in recommending Addstyle Master Builders to anyone looking to renovate or extend.
Prendiville Family, City Beach
We completed a substantial renovation and extension with Addstyle in early 2012 and absolutely could not be happier with the finished product and the service throughout the process.
We were initially referred to Addstyle through both a business colleague and a close friend, both of whom had completed renovations with them previously. We found them to be very thorough from the outset and their close attention to detail compared to the other companies we spoke to was evident from our first meeting.
We built through winter and we stayed in the home while the works were being completed and can honestly say we barely had an issue (save for a small leak into an exisiting ceiling during one stormy night, which our supervisor Ray attended to immediately).
Variations? No, nothing much to speak of (certainly far less than when we built a new home previously) I also found their communication to be excellent as the Client Liaison lady called me regularly and the supervisor was on site daily.
All in all we have a wonderful home that we are constantly complimented on and would recommend Addstyle to anyone who asked.
S. Brand, Menora
Have built two extensions with Addstyle over fifteen years and on both occasions their service and attention to detail has been superb.
Award winning builders and it’s obvious why. Thank you to all their staff, a great company.
A&K Kusabs, Mount Lawley
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to a job well done by Addstyle on our extension and renovation.
Your team exceeded our expectations and we were very happy with the service provided.
We have found people stopping by to look and trying to work out just where the extension was done, of course they can’t tell!!
It has made a big difference in the enjoyment of our home and all of our family and friends are very impressed with the end result! I am sure we won’t have a word to say when it comes to recommendation because the workmanship will speak for itself.
