Character Home Extensions and Renovations with Amerex
Amerex have 30+ years of experience and expertise in designing and building Character Homes Extensions and renovating the existing part of the home
Amerex have been building Character Home Renovations and Home Extensions in Perth since 1987. We are firmly established as your go-to character home experts and leading renovation company in Perth. Whether you have a Californian Bungalow, Federation era, heritage home or a home from any decade ranging from the early 1900’s thru to 1950 and beyond we can help.
With a proven track record and award-winning results in renovating and extending heritage and character homes, we are now starting to see an increase in enquiries from homeowners with homes from later eras such as 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s. These homes are now looking dated, old and tired and in need of renovation. Added to this, is the fact that the design of many older homes no longer meet today’s standards of living, we are helping famlies to remodel their floorplan and add space and a better flow to their home.
When it comes to Character Home Renovations, the most common approach is to knock off the old sleep-out or existing rear of the home. This is then replaced with a new and modern extension comprised of an Open Plan Living area with new Dining area 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. You may also need a new Laundry, additional bedrooms, etc…We can help design a home extension that will suit your family perfectly.
Along with a house 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.
When adding an extension to an older home, you can either opt to blend the old and new, OR, create a completely modern extension and preserve the era and style of the front of the home. Either way we can help.
Amerex have won many awards for our high quality craftsmanship and expertise in renovating character homes including Californian Bungalows, Federation homes and older homes with classic heritage features.
A popular option for the look and feel of your home extension, is to replicate certain character and heritage features in the new extension so that the old and new have a link to each other. This provides continuity of style, while also making sure it looks modern and fresh.
A brand new kitchen is at the top of the ‘must-have’ items in a new extension and all Amerex kitchens are fitted out with quality features including stone bench-tops, modern appliances, soft-closing draws and more. If space permits, many clients are also requesting a Butler’s Pantry or Scullery alongside their new kitchen.
Whatever approach you decide to take, we have experienced professionals at hand to guide your selections to ensure that your home renovation and extension will look sensational.
Increasingly we are finding that Home Owners are looking to add a completely modern home extension that is in complete contrast to the existing part of the home. Amerex are absolutely on board with this approach, and have undertaken several recent modern home extensions projects taking this approach with stunning results. Sometimes it can be the simple use of modern materials or products that can provide the extended home with an unique edge. For example, Amerex recently completed a character home extension in West Perth where the owners opted for polished concrete floors instead of floorboards in the extended part of the home (pics coming soon!) with stunning results.
Amerex love the opportunity to work with new materials and innovative products, and embrace the opportunity to do so. Whatever style you decide for the extension and renovation to your home, you can be assured that the Amerex commitment to QUALITY and CARE will shine thru in your end result.

“AMAZING experience. We have just completed a major renovation with Steve and the AMEREX team.
We had a 1930’s California bungalow and required the character at the front to be maintained whilst adding almost an entire new house to the back including a second story.”
“We have built twice before, both new homes one with larger builders. The difference between that and our experience with AMEREX was astounding.
This was actually an exciting and pleasurable experience throughout.
Rather than a number or just “another” client, we were made to feel part of the AMEREX family.
The office staff are a pleasure to deal with, nothing is ever too much effort. Kelly in particular is a great help with all the various selections and changes and is always smiling!”
“We did not have an issue with a single tradesman throughout.
I was able to speak to either at any time regarding any issue, many times Steve would suggest changes on site to improve the look or function of the renovation.
Great workmanship direct line to the owners/supervisor, quality finish.
We could not recommend AMEREX highly enough.”
