Trust Henry Brown & Associates with your house renovation

If you had any doubts about a house renovation being the activity Kiwis are most passionate about, look no further than the fact that the ‘The Block’ television finale is the biggest TV event in New Zealand for Kiwis aged 25 to 54 – even beating out the All Blacks test series.

At Henry Brown & Associates we share the Kiwi passion for beautifully renovated homes, and that’s why we like to be in at the ground floor all the way to finish for your house renovation or new build project – there’s something about watching an idea come to life before our eyes.

Having been on the ground floor of hundreds of renovations and new builds, you can rely on the experience that Henry Brown & Associates brings to every project; it’s the sure way to make sure you avoid expensive mistakes but, at the same time, discover the small things that will add tremendous value to your home.
