A flawless brick house renovation to meet your growing needs

Picture a house — you’re picturing a brick home. We’re sure of it. Whatever architectural style you’ve imagined, whatever era it’s from, whatever features it has, brick plays a part in its design. This versatile material has been a staple of the home building industry since the dawn of architecture, and while there are plenty of alternatives these days, this classic endures.

Today, bricks are used in homes of all styles, from bungalows to post-war to Edwardian. In some instances, bricks are used for their structural integrity and practical qualities; in others, a stylish brick facade adds curb appeal. The polychrome brickwork common to homes built during the Victorian and Edwardian eras are especially popular. But, you’ll even find many homeowners add visual interest by painting a non-traditional colour scheme over their brick homes.

Supa Group’s specialists have decades of experience renovating and extending brick homes across Melbourne, and we’re excited to hear about your ambitions. Maybe you’re after a stylish brick home exterior makeover, or maybe you want weatherboard extensions on your brick house, or a new covered porch. Maybe you’d like to improve space, flow and natural light with a home renovation. Whatever your dream home looks like, trust Supa Group to bring it to life.

Key features of Brick homes

Brick homes aren’t actually a defined style — this expressive and practical material can be integrated into any architectural style. 

Colourfully expressive

Brick’s natural earth tones evoke a certain nostalgia and comfort, yet the texture of a brick facade can be complemented with carefully chosen colour schemes.

Exceptional durability

Brick is both fireproof and weatherproof, making it an ideal home-building material. It’s also an excellent insulator, locking in heat or cold and keeping your electricity bill in check.

Classically attractive

Melbourne’s red brick homes are an iconic part of our architectural heritage. Using bricks in a modernist style is a great way to marry tradition and progress.

Brick home heritage overlays

Heritage overlays are council-specific restrictions designed to preserve and protect historically significant homes. Each council will apply different criteria to assess whether particular homes gain heritage protection. Just because your house is old, it doesn't necessarily mean that it has that protection. Our helpful design consultants will be able to advise you of any heritage overlay on your property, or any other factor that may affect the design response.

Heritage overlays don’t have to be a headache. With 45+ years of experience at our back, we know how to work with Melbourne’s councils to meet their goals of preserving historical significance, as well as your own goals of modern space, style and practicality.

Get in touch if you’re worried about the heritage overlays on your Melbourne brick home. We help you find a satisfying solution.

Frequently asked questions about brick home extensions in Melbourne

What’s the process for renovating a brick house?

We’ve spent decades refining our home renovation process, making it as straightforward, transparent and efficient as possible. Here’s how we work:

  1. The Design Phase: in collaboration with you, we’ll design the ideal extension or renovation that meets your needs and any local restrictions.
  2. The Contract Phase: we’ll apply for and secure any necessary permits. We’ll also assemble our contractors and are happy to bring on your chosen specialists.
  3. The Build Phase: construction begins, and we’ll make sure everything is exactly as promised before we shuffle out the front door. Our finished work is backed by a 10-year guarantee.

How expensive will it be to renovate my brick house?

Your project's cost depends on the scope and specifics of the project.

We’ll need to consider what kind of extension you want; ground floor, second storey or front porch extensions each come with their own difficulties and nuances. We’ll also need to factor in your material choices; for example, if you’re looking for a wooden or weatherboard cladding extension on your brick house.

Can I live in my brick house during the extension process?

Yes, as long as certain amenities are safe and available to you. If our work affects your access to your bedroom, bathroom or kitchen, you will need to find alternative accommodation until those areas are safe again. We’ll give you a schedule of our work so you’ll know when you need to vacate the site and when you can return.
