    I can not speak highly enough about Orlando and Lee at Invent. I had heard of a few nightmare projects by friends so was very cautious in who we used and was not looking forward this process. Orlando has been super helpful and patient with me over the last few months. He has always kept me up to date and whole process could not have been any easier. A great team.

    Extremely satisfied with every aspect of the service from the outset. Responses are quick, information is accurate and all options are provided to help with best decision making. Plus, the service is highly professional, friendly and provides clear guidance in what can be a minefield in the home renovation world. It was much more straightforward than anticipated and I put this down to the knowledge these guys have in their industry.
