Behold the remarkable transformation of this renovated house, once ravaged by disaster when hot water flowed unchecked for three days, turning it into a sweltering sauna. Now restored to its former glory, this stunning home stands as a testament to the art of renovation.



Renovation after water damage


The home is an executive styled two-storied brick and tile residence set in the rear of a private right of way. During the owners’ absence of three days, the hot water fitting on the upper floor bathroom failed, resulting in boiling water flooding the house unchecked. The damage caused to the building was immense. The house had literally turned into a sauna.

Our Solution

The whole house needed to be gutted which included the removal of the mid-floor particleboard flooring due to delamination, architraves and skirtings, Giboard walls/ceilings, bathroom shower enclosures, kitchen and vanity fittings. Working with the insurance company step by step we brought the house back to better than new, communicating with the owner at every stage. The owner initially was very concerned that the amount of damage could be caused by a small PVC fitting. Plus the realisation that he would not be able to reside in the home while the work was carried out. Towards the end of the re-build, it became apparent that the refurbished home would be a great improvement on the pre-flooded one in both quality and design it. This lifted a huge burden off his shoulders and changed his personality over-night.

Happy Customer

I had a major problem in my house when a hot water pipe gave way while I was in the South Island and my entire 2 Storey dwelling was inundated with hot water/steam for an extended period. Damage was huge and took 8 months to repair and refurbish. My first telephone call when hearing of the disaster was to Peter Parris. Parris Williams were on the scene within minutes of being contacted. Their empathy, professionalism, advice, guidance and expertise as Builders and Project Managers were both exceptional and of the highest standard from the time Pete Parris and Shaun Williams stepped on to the property until the time they were able to hand the home back to me, beautifully refurbished. This was no surprise to me as I have commissioned the services of Parris Williams on previous occasions and I was well aware of their honesty, integrity and ability. I have always been very impressed with the efficiency and accuracy of the PW Office support procedures. This Company successfully strives for perfection in everything they do and they won’t accept anything but the same level of competence from other trade colleagues who are fortunate enough to be selected to work in with them. In my case, Parris Williams project managed a team of highly experienced builders, plumbers, electricians, tilers, plasterers and painters, all of whom were true experts in their field. Everyone worked in so well together, in perfect harmony and to the highest standards. I was kept fully informed of all developments and I always knew where I stood as the project progressed. I was so grateful for the personal support and advice I received from Pete Parris, Shaun Williams and indeed from all their team. They had me back in my house on schedule, within reasonable cost and very happy with the final result. In summary ‘fantastic value for money’. There were no negatives to report. Superb workmanship.
