Has your home’s interior become dated, dull and stagnant? Or have you recently invested in a property that needs structural alterations and other major repairs? To meet every need, South East Building Service carries out property refurbishments and home renovations in and around Kent. No matter the type, size and complexity of your project, our builders can breathe new life into your neglected property. This includes upgrading interior aesthetics, reimagining layouts and restoring compliance with the Building Regulations.
Operating out of Maidstone, we cover all surrounding areas. Some of our key service locations include Canterbury, Chatham, Cranbrook, Gillingham, Rainham, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and West Malling. We undertake projects in Essex and across the South East too.
With a trading history stretching back to our establishment in 1994, South East Building Service takes pride in the range and quality of our refurbishment and renovation portfolio. We’re happy to show you examples of how we modernise and improve properties in line with any design and lifestyle aspirations.

From the outset, it’s important to understand that home renovations and refurbishments are two standalone services. They are not interchangeable terms. While there is some overlap at times, refurbishments and renovations involve markedly different approaches that deliver distinct results.
From Maidstone to Canterbury, it’s essential to recognise which service applies to the work you want our builders to carry out at your site in Medway, Kent or the wider South East region.
For your convenience, we have outlined the core differences between these services.
During a refurbishment, we focus on the processes that return tired, stagnant and outdated rooms, or entire properties, back to a good state of repair. These projects typically include aspects of re-equipping, retrofitting and redecoration. We may also perform minor building work.
A refurbishment, then, involves decorative services that upgrade aesthetics. As your chosen builders, we supply and install an array of fixtures, fittings and new materials as per your specification.
From paintwork to new flooring, and from woodwork to a full kitchen upgrade, you can rely on South East Building Service for property refurbishments of any kind.
The clearest difference between renovations and refurbishments is the scale of the work involved. As opposed to the more superficial nature of a refurbishment, renovations dig deeper under your property’s skin, fixing much bigger problems. It’s common, then, for us to start renovations with houses in a damaged, rundown or even dilapidated condition.
No matter the initial state of your property in Maidstone, Canterbury, Medway or the wider Kent area, our team of builders returns it to a safe, aesthetically pleasing condition. Most importantly, we make it fit for modern use with new installations that comply with current safety standards. This includes electrical, plumbing and heating upgrades completed by professionals with Gas Safe and NICEIC certification.
Unlike property refurbishments, home renovations can also include changing the internal layout. This frequently involves knocking through non-load-bearing walls. Not only does this improve access, it also increases natural light transmission.
Of course, if your project needs a combination of both services, we happily meet your needs.
