      The renovation of my apartment in Newtown turned out exactly the way I wanted - actually even better than I expected. Samuel provided a detailed quote and communicated with me frequently and clearly. He also dealt with strata and provided them with all the info they needed throughout the entire process. I felt relaxed knowing that he had everything under control. He had great ideas and solutions for anything I asked, nothing was too much trouble. The work was carried out to an excellent standard and his attention to detail was impressive. There was also guidance provided for choosing fittings/colours/appliances and I'm really happy with the advice I received. I would definitely recommend Samuel and his team for their quality, service, reliability, innovation and care... they really go above and beyond!

      My apartment has totally been transformed and it looks AMAZING! The renovations have definitely added value and I love the new, modern look!

      I am so happy with the work from Mario and team and have already recommended Renovations by SM to my friends and family.

      Thank you for the professionalism throughout! Issues were dealt with swiftly with well thought out solutions resulting in even better outcomes.

      Well done guys!

      Mario and his exceptional team did such an amazing job renovating our kitchen, bathroom and en-suite. The result was exactly what we were looking for and has transformed our unit into a place we are proud to invite people to. Work was carried out by experienced craftsmen who all kept our unit exceptionally tidy, and gave a great deal of care and attention to every detail. Communication was frequent and the renovation was completed on time. Everyone I came into contact with was a pleasure to deal with.

      Being an Architect myself, I have worked with literally hundreds of contractors and I can honestly say that Renovations by SM are up there with the best I've ever dealt with!

      Renovations By SM's, Mario Savona and his team of subcontractors recently completed a major renovation of my apartment in Potts Point. I could not be happier with the outcome and the process. On rare occasions when we had issues to work out, Mario would already have 2 or 3 solutions ready for discussion. Honest, innovative and keen attention to detail are all hallmarks of Renovations by SM and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

      A complete toilet renovation was undertaken by SM for the Hoxton Park Seventh-day Adventist Church, this included both men's and ladies toilets. The workmanship was outstanding and the work was completed within the specified time period. There was no waiting period for contractors to come on site because of delays. They were there when required. The finished work was of the highest quality and we would not hesitate to recommend Mario and his team to anyone requiring similar renovations. As we are a large congregations we have had wonderful feedback from everyone including visitors.

      Samuel & His team are a competent, friendly and dedicated bunch. They renovated & extended our Inner West terrace to a high standard. The detail Chris & Mina have achieved is one of the finest, keeping the space tidy and cleaning as they go is a testament to their work ethic. From arranging preliminaries all the way through to obtaining the occupation certificate, Samuel has dedicated his ideas, hard work, weekends and responsibility to every aspect of the job. He keeps his eyes and ears on the job the whole time, with a 'can do' attitude from start to finish. Finding a builder / project manager who can juggle well is a rarity, but Samuel seems to have a firm grip on this. His team are there to support him and deliver outstanding results in a timely and well maintained manner. All variations were discussed and negotiated between us to achieve a high standard of work whilst keeping finances in check. Not as expensive as some other builders. Overall a very successful and much appreciated construction team, leaving no detail out. Thanks to all who have played a role in turning my house into my home. We will be sure to use this mob next time we require some building services. Thanks again to Samuel, Mario, Chris, Mina, Andrew, Emad & the rest!

      Renovations by SM were recommended to me and thank goodness they were. The entire crew were professional, courteous and did an outstanding job – their attention to detail was amazing. They undertook the complete renovation of my apartment (photos on website) which included a total refurbishment of my bathroom and laundry, new floorboards, new sliding doors to patio, painting, taking out ceiling cornices and replacing with shadow-line, downlights, the list goes on and on – the outcome is just WOW! From beginning to end the process has been flawless. Samuel, Mario and the crew I cannot thank you all enough for the spectacular work you provided, I am so very happy.

      I came across Renovations by SM through internet search. As such I was really hesitant at first, but after seeing some of their prior work, I choose to renovate 2 bathrooms and a laundry. (still with lots of trepidation)

      The results were amazing (bathrooms are on the website). They really take pride in their work, from ensuring the place was cleaned up every day after work, to ensuring dust and dirt was at a minimum. I like that they give input on design ideas, have examples, and lots of experience. Samuel and Mario are really easy to deal with, and do extra to what I was expecting (and I have pretty high expectations). They are keen to finish the job to a high standard, but also keen to ensure it completes on time. My wife loves the effort Mina puts in to the detail and final cleans for the end product, and I like that they come up with ideas during the process that could enhance it at a reasonable cost. (not just executing the brief). Overall their costs are very competitive from all the quotes I received.

      Post bathrooms, they have now done my kitchen, lots of lighting (the sparkie they use is great, and a magician in working in small voids), and a full renovation of an investment property. When I asked for a small item to be repainted, they repainted not only that roof, but all the roof in the a joining room for consistency.

      Very happy with the whole process, and they have given us a new benchmark to hold other contractors to.

      To say professionalism is an understatement. Mario and his team made a bathroom renovation a simple, smooth and stress free process. Being based overseas whilst my new bathroom was being installed didn’t feel like a logistics issue, regular communication and updates, not to mention if I wanted something specific or didn’t exactly want was available Mario went out of his way to source what I preferred for the bathroom. The workmanship is that of a 5 star hotel! I can’t say enough, except I still have so much more work to do in the house and it will be an ongoing process which actually I look forward to completing with this exceptional team.

      After an extensive planning, procurement and construction program we have just completed a long 8 week, 5 room (wet areas) renovation. We are extremely happy with the end result and we now once again enjoy using all the newly refurbished spaces. Whilst its always difficult to live in and around the construction work, the end result makes it all worthwhile. Mario has a great bunch of expert contractors that work for him from demolition to final clean and hand over. All the work is carried out with quality in mind and with no short cuts. This is all evident in the end product with everything working and looking as its suppose to.

      I classify myself as a difficult customer / client as I work in the industry and demand and expect a certain end product. Achieving that is not always easy and it often comes after heated exchanges with the contractors on site and the project manager. This project was no different but negotiation and resolving issues on site with Mario and his contractors was pleasant and stress free. We together managed to resolve all the issues to a satisfactory level acceptable to us and Mario.

      If you are contemplating a refurbishment, I highly recommend Mario and his team to do a great job.
