Building relationships one house at a time...

(1/3) We have needed to update our dated bathroom for a long time but always put it off believing it was an unnecessary expense when all our ablution area was still fully functioning and doing its job. I also dreaded the idea of having a building site within our home.

We eventually got it done and I definitely wish we’d done it sooner! I never realised that a bathroom could enhance my life in the way that it has. Like many we are a very busy wee family, navigating all that life brings. We have now gone from a difficult to clean, can’t wait to get out, cold room to a warm, easy space to navigate as we all do the busy morning routine. It’s now a fun, calm, safe-for-toddler space as we negotiate the witching hour and a relaxing full wind-down space for this tired mama at the end of a busy day. The whole family is benefiting and really enjoying it.

(2/3) Evoke's communication was gold standard throughout the process. We felt very heard by Anthony as we discussed our thoughts around design. He supported us to make the right decisions and was able to tactfully point out how some of our thoughts about design could be disappointing. My fears of having strangers, dust and noise in the cherished privacy of our home were unfounded. This team were respectful, friendly, reliable time keepers and always very clean. Once they were finished, they left the house like it hadn’t been touched other than this wonderful new space that has been created.

(3/3) I guess my message is, if you need/want a new bathroom but having some doubts about it being a priority, I would recommend you go for it! It’s enhanced our day to day living more than we could of imagined. If you are looking for a professional company with integrity and go above and beyond to provide the best service, check out Evoke Renovations. As you will now know from this review, I can’t recommend them highly enough!

Evoke recently completed a complete bathroom renovation. The result is outstanding. More than that the process from beginning to end has been smooth and untroubled mainly due to Evokes excellent communication and considered attention to detail. Anthony, his team and associated sub-contractors were always professional, friendly and reliable. Beyond that, Evoke were affordable, always punctual and highly knowledgeable. A team we can highly recommend.


Evoke Renovations transformed my tired, old bathroom -completing the job on time, on budget and to an exceptional standard. They responded quickly whenever I had a question and suggested tweaks that made the final result better than I ever expected. They also bent over backwards to ensure that the only shower in the house was only out of action for a week. I can't recommend them highly enough, and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.


Anthony and the team at Evoke did a superb job with my shower install. We had some unexpected complications when the delivery of the shower components by the supplier were not to specifications. Anthony did an excellent job in liaising with me on my options and managing all the logistics with the plumbing supplier while I was at work. Calm, organised and solution focused and an excellent outcome for me. Highly recommended.


Anthony Wheeler and his exceptional team at Evoke Renovations have renovated 90% of my home and I wouldn’t have any other team to do renovations for me. The care, dedication and eye for detail the team bring to each job is reassuring and I know they are a team that I can trust. Uncovering many problems in an old house was no problem to them. I can’t recommend them highly enough!

I must thank you for all you have done to make my home the lovely place it now is. I have appreciated the friendliness and skill you and your staff have shown and the way you have worked in with me as we went along. Again, it has been a pleasure working with your crew and I will be happy to recommend you to anyone needing work done.


Anthony and Liam provided a perfect service in our shower replacement. They kept us informed as to when and what was to take place, worked in a neat and tidy manner, and unlike so many tradespeople kept to their stated time table leaving us with exactly what we expected. We'd happily recommend Evoke to anyone undertaking a project like this.


We are very happy with our renovations. Our bathroom has been transformed into a modern airy visually-pleasing space. It is so much better than our 30 year-old room!

We are pleased with the laundry - again - a more modern space - feels clean and airy. Looking forward to filling up the cupboards!

The team were pleasant and hard-working. We had minimal disruption from their presence onsite and we received great communication throughout from Anthony.


Evoke recently renovated my 89 year old father-in-law's bathroom and delivered a safe, simple, good quality and efficient bathroom for a reasonable cost. The quote provided by Evoke included a work breakdown that gave me confidence Anthony had understood the brief accurately. The job started on the promised date and was completed within the forecasted 2-3 weeks. Anthony maintained good communication throughout the job and always responded when I needed to contact him. The Evoke team were well organised and the sequencing of the work by the trades people was well co-ordinated. We are very happy with the quality of the finished bathroom.  Having undertaken a number of building projects Evoke is one to the best firms we have worked with and I recommend Evoke to anyone undertaking a renovation project.

We are delighted with our new bathrooms! The standard of service and workmanship has been excellent and we would happily recommend Evoke to friends.

(1/3) I selected Anthony and the team at Evoke Renovations to manage the majority of a significant renovation of our mid-century (built 1959/60) home, total renovation value ~$270K. The principal aspects Anthony was involved in were a full kitchen renovation, two bathroom renovations, some other electrical, heating and plumbing work and other general building work. Given the amount of money involved and the scale of the project, I was anxious to find the right person for the job.

(2/3) Anthony has a calm efficiency about him. He's a capable project manager and a very sound tradesman, who has built a small team of similarly likable, professional and capable people, all of whom we were very happy to have in our house, often unsupervised. The team was always friendly, with a good sense of humour. Importantly, they were at all times accountable for their work and quick to correct any minor glitches that inevitably happen on a project of this scale, without argument or trying to point the finger elsewhere, which is something we have seen with previous builders.

(3/3) We shall forever be grateful for Anthony's willingness to help us establish a temporary kitchen, having just gutted our old kitchen, on the day before New Zealand went into COVID-19 Level 4 lock down. I should also add that the team left the site tidy throughout the project. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony Wheeler and his team at Evoke Renovations if you are considering renovating your property. 5 stars.

Simon C

We wanted our bathroom gutted and re-done. The team at Evoke renovations gave us alternative ideas for optimal layout etc. Communication was constant with them providing updates during COVID-19 and they pushed to get things done quickly once they could resume. We are very happy with the result and they will certainly be our go-to for any future renovation needs. Very friendly and they went above and beyond for us. Would definitely recommend. A+

Brett M

We were very happy with the shower and toilet install.I can’t think of anything that could be done to improve the service and would happily recommend Evoke!

Ray Gillespie

We can't thank the pair of you and your workers enough for helping us to transform our old dingy bathroom!
We love it - plenty of room and just as you suggested and recommended.
Everything was very timely, prompt and professional, plus Anthony was very supportive and helpful when it came to small changes once we saw the 'big picture', communication was excellent. We couldn't recommend your company more highly - 5+++!

Frances and Graeme Nimmo

We engaged Evoke to completely renovate our bathroom, toilet and laundry. We are absolutely delighted with the end result.  
We found Anthony to be very professional and very organised.  
He always communicated well and nothing was too difficult for him to do.  Anthony went above and beyond what would ordinarily be expected, and we are very grateful for this. There were a number of additional issues that cropped up around our property, which Anthony was very quick to respond to, assist and resolve for us.
Anthony, we are very happy to recommend you to anyone who is contemplating renovations to their home.

My bathroom needed the custom vanity replaced. I was referred to Evoke Renovations and couldn't be happier. Anthony was fantastic to deal with, the price was great and less than other competitors for a better solution. There was great communication throughout the process with any questions quickly answered and the site was left spotless. I will be using them again for my next projects.


I came across Evoke Renovations when visiting one of the bathroom companies looking for ideas. Anthony was unofficially recommended as a good guy to work with. Without him, our bathroom would have looked much different and certainly with not as much wow factor!
All the trades involved were organised without a problem by him and he kept us up to date with what was happening.

I would recommend Evoke definitely for any renovation work you may need done.

Vicky and Sharon

You are both excellent to work with. Very professional, reliable and trustworthy. Would have no hesitation in recommending you.

Mark & Nikki

We are over the moon. Your communication was excellent, with good old fashion service that is hard to get these days.
