Character Home Renovations

from 150k

Amerex are experts in Character Home Renovations and have firmly established themselves as leading Builders and Renovators of Perth Character Homes. We have worked with Californian Bungalows, Federation era heritage homes and homes from eras ranging from the early 1900’s thru to 1950. We have also worked with homes from later eras such as 1950’s, 1960’s and beyond, however these do not normally come under the category of Character Homes.


When it comes to Character Home Renovations, the most common request from Owners, is to knock off the old sleep-out or existing rear of the home. This is then replaced with new and modern Open Plan Living, Dining and a new Kitchen. The existing parts of the home are often renovated at the same time. This includes the mandatory upgrade of your electrical system to meet today’s safety standards.


Along with the extension at the rear of the home, many clients also opt to add a Second Story Addition at the same time. This is the ultimate renovation where you gain Open Plan Living from the downstairs, and upstairs you gain additional bedrooms and a great deal of extra space in the Second Story Addition e.g. Master bedroom, ensuite, children’s rooms and perhaps an activity/study area.

Seamless Blend of Old and New

We are experts at blending the old and the new part of the homes. There is a great deal of attention to detail involved in doing this, and Amerex have won many awards for our high quality craftsmanship and expertise in renovating homes built in the decades spanning 1900 to 1940.


We discuss with you what character and heritage features you would like in the new areas, so that there is continuity of the heritage style, while also making sure it looks modern and fresh. Typically, jarrah floorboards are continued into the new extension, high ceilings and heritage style skirting boards.


Kitchens have all the mod-cons including stone bench-tops, modern appliances and work equally well with a completely modern look, or by adding acknowledgement to the heritage of the home with style elements such as subway tile splash-backs.

Contrast of Old and New?

Increasingly we are finding that home-owners are looking for a complete contrast from the older part of the home and the new extension. For example, Amerex have recently completed a home renovation in Jolimont where the owners have opted for polished concrete instead of floorboards, and we embrace this approach also.


Whatever style you take with your Character Home Renovation, you can be assured that the Amerex commitment to quality will shine thru in your end result.
