Why buy new when you can renew?
At RENUIT Ventures Ltd., we specialize in interior and exterior renovation work.
Renovation is an excellent choice to improve the function and form of an outdated or damaged structure inside or outside your home. We can make your old home look, feel, and operate like a brand-new home.
Renovations can increase the resale value of your home, and will make it a better place for you and your family to live and spend time together.
A complete renovation project can be significantly less expensive than building a new home, and whether you’re considering a whole-home renovation or full-scale demolition to rebuild on an existing foundation, or you simply want to modernize your kitchen or bathroom, RENUIT is up to the task.
We will guide you through the entire renovation process, starting with an initial in-home consultation where you can tell us about what’s currently working and what you’d like to improve.
Bring us your ideas and inspirations, or an entire plan if you have one. If you require assistance in coming up with the concept for your renovation, we can connect you with one of our trusted designers.
Once you’ve decided on the changes you want to make, it’s time to create blueprints. This is particularly important when your project involves knocking down walls and/or moving electrical and plumbing features. We can recommend a local architectural and engineering firm to assist with this important stage of planning.
Next, it’s time to apply for a building permit. We can help guide you (or take the reins completely for you) through the building inspection process, as we are well versed in the various building codes for Cumberland, Courtenay, Comox, and the Comox Valley Regional District.
Home Renovation Projects & Services
Not all home renovations need to be massive projects. Here are some renovation projects and services we can complete for you:
Siding is an excellent investment for adding curb appeal to the outside of your home and exterior buildings. RENUIT offers installation of HardiePlank®, vinyl, cedar, smartlap (LP SmartSide® engineered wood siding), board and batten, and cedar or Hardie shingles.
If you are wanting to add your own unique touch to your home, tile is a great option. With so many styles, textures and colours, the combinations are endless.
The RENUIT team has completed many bathroom shower surrounds, kitchen backsplashes, and floors. We are also wizards at creating tile shelving.

New flooring is an easy way to update the look of your home. Whether you have one room or many, the RENUIT team can provide the installation of tiles, laminate flooring, engineered hardwood, hardwood, or vinyl plank.
We have completed many different jobs, including sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, house foundations, basement slabs, retaining walls, steps, patios, and decorative landscaping curbs.
Our professional concrete finishers are proficient in a variety of finishes including exposed aggregate, broom finish, magnesium trowel, and polished.
Carpentry consists of the cutting, shaping, and installation of building materials during the construction process. RENUIT can provide custom carpentry work, including bathroom vanities, decks, staircases, shelving units, cabinetry, fine woodwork, detailed finishing, and much more.
Should you or shouldn’t you?
Here are some things to consider when deciding whether or not to take on a renovation:
Is it worth upgrading your home based on your location and the comparable properties in the area?
Perhaps your home is already at the top end of the market in your area, or perhaps the overall real estate market is slowing down. In this case, renovating makes sense if it’s for your own family’s enjoyment and use, but not if you’re only doing it in the hopes of improving your chances of selling your home
Are you living in your home long- or short-term?
If you are planning to stay two to five years, it doesn’t make sense to spend a bunch of extra money on fancy upgrades, but if you are planning to live there for at least five to ten years, it’s worth investing in higher-end features and finishings.
Will you have a good return on your investment if you renovate?
Kitchen and bathroom refreshing projects, or investing in outdoor upgrades like new siding, garage and front doors, windows, or a deck are the projects where you stand to regain the highest percentage of the money you spend on renovating
Are you willing to live through a renovation?
Minor renovations are easy to handle, but a major project like updating your kitchen means you need to plan ahead. How will you cook and do dishes during the renovations? Can you move somewhere else temporarily?
Restoration & New Home Construction
We also do restoration work and new home construction in the Comox Valley.
Restoring your home after damage has occurred, such as in the event of a flood, can seem like an overwhelming process. RENUIT will work with you and/or your insurance company help return your existing property back to its original condition.
You have found the perfect piece of raw land and are getting ready to build your dream home! Building new, from start to finish, can seem like a daunting task, but the benefits are many and RENUIT is here to help you bring your vision to reality. We are able to assist with building your home from the foundation to finish, using custom blueprints or spec home plans. Design and architecture consultation are available, if required.
Here are some things to consider when you are thinking of building new:
- It allows you the freedom of customization
- If investment is a priority, a new build gives you immediate equity in your home
- You only have to work with the contractor, if you choose
- You will have to consider what services will be available at your location (e.g. sewer, water, electrical)
