Fall in love with your home again

Written by: JKC Building | June 4, 2020

If you are feeling uninspired by your home, it’s time to show it some love. A few simple changes can breathe new life into your home and considering how much time we spend there, it will be worth it.

With the many options of tradespeople out there, most people wonder where they actually start? Is it with the design or is it with the right builder? We like to think that it’s a bit of both and with almost 50 years’ experience in building and renovations, JKC Building pride ourselves on quality, professionalism, and client satisfaction. While most residential building companies prefer to build new homes, JKC Building enjoy the challenge of renovating existing homes and making improvements that make big differences.

As licenced builders, JKC Building are experts in home renovations and improvements including creating an open plan and removing walls, window and door replacements, new decks and entertaining areas, kitchen upgrades and extensions. No matter the size of your job, the JKC Building team will have the licence and qualifications to get the job done right.

JKC Building was established in 1972 by founder, John Kenna, in his hometown of Winton in Western Queensland. By the mid-seventies, John moved the family to Townsville as a better place to service both North and Western Queensland. The business is now run by John’s son Patrick, who grew in awe of his father’s work, which also launched his passion for building.

When you choose JKC Building, you are choosing a team who prides ourselves in quality workmanship and customer service. We are here to listen to your ideas for your next project and do our best to bring your visions to life. Why not call today for a free quote?
