Bathroom Renovations Malvern

JTDODD is a construction company in the Malvern vicinity. We have a passion for expertly managing all home renovations and improvements, with particular expertise in bathrooms.

Bathrooms serve different purposes for different people. For some, they are purely a functional space in which to make yourself presentable before leaving the house, or bath the kids at bedtime. For others, they provide a safe and relaxing space to leave the world behind and treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering. 

Whatever your desires for your bathroom, the JTDODD objective is to maximise your existing space. We’ll ensure a solution that best serves you and your family, by capitalising on current features and adding new ones. We’ll work to leave you with a room as beautiful as it is functional, and that will help boost the value of your property.

The Grandview Grove Renovation

The owners were thrilled with the results, and have reported that the new space offers improved flow, while the entire aesthetic is much more attractive. What’s more, the project was turned around on budget, and within the three-month timeframe initially estimated.

What Should a Bathroom Renovation Cost?

The total cost of any renovation project will vary due to the many different costs associated. How much you ultimately spend is determined by a myriad of factors, from style and size, through to complexity, quality and timeframe. The best way to get a realistic indication of the cost before committing to your renovation is to arrange a consultation with JTDODD.

This can be conducted either over the phone or on-site in your bathroom itself. We’ll listen and ask informed questions as you describe your unique vision, requirements and goals. This invaluable information will help us put together an indication of how much budget to allow for the right bathroom for you.

Our Consultation Process

What sets JTDODD apart from the competition is the thorough nature of our consultation process, which kicks in from the get-go. Our relationship with you will normally commence with a free no-obligation strategy call. This will include a few preliminary questions to help us identify how we can best make your dream bathroom a reality.

Step two is a more in-depth, on-site meeting. This will give our people the chance to view the space and understand some of the crucial factors including your lifestyle, wants and needs. Step three involves our people sitting down to consider various options before making our educated recommendations and working with you to agree on the final scope and concept. From here, we’ll develop a bespoke renovation plan to ensure the smoothest process and the most outstanding result.

Our Bathroom Renovation Process

The first question many clients ask is how much they should budget for their planned bathroom renovation. Many factors come into play, including the size, quality and complexity of the work, meaning it’s a difficult question to give a definitive answer to early on in the process. 

To help guide you, we’ll ask lots of questions at the very start, before taking everything we know to provide a rough approximation of the likely budget required. This figure will not only cover basics such as materials, labour, electrics and plumbing, but also the preparation of all necessary drawings, permits and reports. As the project evolves, we’ll collaborate with your chosen architect or draftsperson to ensure their plans are appropriate for the initial budgetary estimate.

Only after all plans are professionally drawn up will we be in a position to calculate your detailed fixed price. Variations from the initial estimate could arise at this stage, dependant on your final choice of materials, fixtures and fittings, equipment, any luxury items and overall timeframe.

Your Peace of Mind

First thing’s first, at JTDODD we know our stuff. Our reputation means everything to us, which is why we pull out all the stops to ensure your bathroom renovation is completed to the highest possible standard. 

We want to ensure the results not only look great and function well, but also meet the brief and fulfil your needs. On completion, we don’t simply return your keys, shake your hand, and shut the door on our way out. Instead, we walk our clients through their new space, completing a comprehensive 137-point quality control checklist, which considers every last detail of the finish. 

As we hope the above conveys, we are stringent about taking every measure to ensure your new bathroom is handed over defect-free. However, in the unlikely event an issue arises, come back to us within your 90-day maintenance period, and we’ll quickly be on-hand to identify and rectify the problem. And our involvement doesn’t stop there! Beyond those initial 90-days, you’ll enjoy the added reassurance of a two-year non-structural and ten-year structural guarantee. This adds up to the greatest protection for your property and your new bathroom.

You really won’t find a renovator with a stronger commitment to quality. Aside from our many years of experience, we are fully licensed and registered, are a member of the Housing Industry Association (HIA), and have all the necessary insurances. 

What can you expect from JTDODD?

When renovating bathrooms, we see our responsibilities as being two-fold. Firstly, we are passionate about bringing creative, beautiful and functional architectural renovations to life. Secondly, we want to guarantee a straightforward process for our clients, with minimal hassle and inconvenience. We strive to provide customers with a rare level of service that can’t easily be found with other renovation specialists.

So, how do we achieve this? We remain committed to the most efficient, tried and tested processes. We use only the very best quality materials, from suppliers with whom we have built solid, trusting and long-lasting relationships. We employ the best people, committed to flawless artistry for the best quality results, and who will keep your convenience top-of-mind throughout.

Following an in-depth period of consultation with you to ensure we fully understand your desires, we’ll develop the right plan to make your perfect bathroom happen. Our experienced team will faultlessly manage every aspect of the process, from initial concept, right through to design, costing, construction, handover, maintenance and beyond.

The thread running through everything we do is our unique motto, “educate and renovate”. We’ll continually communicate with you in a transparent way, working hard to ensure you understand what we’re doing and why, plus what to expect going forward. Our online client portal is a vital tool in helping achieve this. It’s a user-friendly interface that lets you easily monitor progress in real-time. With frequent updates and the ability to ask questions and sign-off decisions from wherever you happen to be, you’ll never feel out of the loop.

Home Renovations

Are you looking for extra room to suit a growing family, or an impressive new space for entertaining? If the answer is yes, consider expanding your home with a beautiful extension. An extra bedroom or expanded living space not only increases your home’s functionality, but also has the potential to boost its value should you decide to sell in the future.

Our Clients

“We purchased a house that Josh built and had a professional building inspection conducted on the house prior to purchase.

The person undertaking the formal building inspection told us that it is one of the best examples of quality that he has seen in a long time… that the builder’s prowess and attention to detail was outstanding. We had friends through the house who are also builders and commented on the quality and finish! Well done to Josh, we are would highly recommend him to anyone who would ask.”

“Josh and his team were thoroughly professional in the complete rebuilding package they offered me. The design and solutions to my problems were innovative and offered me a better result than I had initially anticipated. The job was completed on time with no fuss.

While I was not necessarily seeking the cheapest quote available. I was delighted that the works came in the right on budget. But the standard of work and service exceeded my expectations.”

“As a retired registered builder and now a building and maintenance supervisor for a large organisation in the retirement sector I have no hesitation in recommending JTDODD for your next renovation.

They have now completed a number of renovations for us over an extended period of time and are now our preferred contractor because of their good communication skills, their high quality of work and their pre planning all of which go to taking any stress out of the project and helping the job run smoothly.”

“I sold a beautiful house that JT Dodd built in late 2018 when the market was very slow. We had a whole range of different people through who all commented on the quality of the build. Myself and others were very impressed with the quality of finish throughout the entire house.

JT Dodd produced both quality and fast build times. Josh is a very professional, registered builder who knows his stuff and truly cares about end result. I would recommend Josh to anyone who would like to renovate & create that new home feeling.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much value does a renovation add?

This is not an easy question to give a definitive answer to in the early stages of planning for a renovation. There are many different factors that come into play, including the style, quality, functionality and size of the space that’s being renovated, to name just a few.

If it’s done right, a renovation has the potential to add a huge amount of value to your property, as well as having the capacity to open it up to a whole new market of interested buyers, should you decide to sell. It is therefore vital that you select your builder carefully to ensure a high quality finish and maximise the financial gains.

How do I find a good renovation company?

A quality renovation can add significant value to your property by opening it up, creating extra space and boosting functionality, as well as improving the overall aesthetic. It’s a big investment, so selecting your contractor based on price alone might not be the smartest move. You’ll want to make sure whoever you employ to carry out the renovation work is up to the task in terms of reliability and quality of workmanship.

The first thing you’ll need to do is seek out fully-licensed, registered and insured practitioners for consideration. It would also be a good idea to look at their website and check whether they have solid testimonials and case study examples of projects they have worked on. Online reviews can be a good indicator of how reputable a contractor is, and proven experience working on similar scale projects is also a plus. In addition, you could try speaking to friends, family or the owners of neighbouring properties for their first-hand recommendations.

What type of renovation increases home value the most?

There is no one answer to this question. It is impossible to say whether a newly renovated bathroom, kitchen or living space will add the most value to your property, as there are so many factors to take into consideration, not least what your property already has and what it may lack. For instance, if you already have a beautiful bathroom but your kitchen is dated, an updated kitchen is likely to add more value than a new bathroom.

What really makes the difference is the quality of the end result. A well done bathroom, for instance, is going to add more value that a poorly done kitchen, and visa versa. The size of the renovated space, functionality and possibly even aesthetics may also play a role.

How much should you spend on kitchen renovation?

Again, this is a tough one to answer without knowing some of the specifics around the property in question and the extra room itself. The potential costs can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors, from style through to size, timeline and quality. The best way to get an idea of the potential costs involved with adding an extra room to your property is to book a consultation or on-site meeting with your builder.

By discussing your distinct requirements and what you hope to achieve with the new space, they will be able to give you a good indication of the amount you should expect to spend in order to get the results you want.

What renovations have the best resale value?

There is no one answer to this question.

How long do house renovations take?

Because every project is different, it’s not easy to give a general timeframe. However, on signing your contract you’ll notice we include a timeline itemising Actual Work Days, Inclement Wet Days, Non–Work Days, Public Holidays and Annual Leave Holidays. With this timeline, you’ll know what to expect and when, so nothing should come as a surprise. You’ll also have access to our work schedule via your online client portal. This outlines all tasks and timelines, ensuring you remain well informed of the progress of your build.

For added peace-of-mind, we have penalties built into our contracts. If we haven’t completed the construction within our allotted timeframe, therefore, you will be compensated. However, it’s important to note that at JTDODD no client has ever needed to claim this penalty, thanks to our proven ability to complete every job on-time.

Is a house renovation budget important?

Starting the process of designing a custom home renovation without a budget in mind is a risky business. It leaves you open to all manner of disappointments. You could be stung with unexpected costs along the way, or end up having to sacrifice the quality of some aspects of the build just to get the project completed.

This is the reason JTDODD takes the necessary time at the very start of every project to listen to your needs before customising a renovation plan to suit your needs AND budget.
