The Business

Revamp is an independent, family business established in 2006, initially to support our own aspiration for developing properties for resale. With extensive experience in home building and renovations, the business was then expanded to take on developments ​and general building works for local customers in St. Albans and the surrounding areas.

Along our journey, ReVamp has built up a regular, reliable crew of sub-contractors, consisting of bricklayers, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, carpenters, decorators, roofers, landscapers and many more.  All are familiar with the high-quality standards and delivery timelines we expect and Mac co-ordinates them like clockwork when running a project.

Today, as a result of Mac’s passion, commitment and high-quality build finish, ReVamp is recognised locally as one of the leading builders of choice.   Hear what customers have to say about ReVamp here.

Our latest development also sees us moving into new build eco homes, building more energy efficient homes for the future that are superior, stronger and airtight whilst reducing site waste, significantly easing the cost of living and supporting a greener Earth.

ReVamp Interiors was also launched in 2022, rounding off the services we offer.

“We were extremely pleased with the work ​undertaken by ReVamp on the rear extension to our house. They came highly recomm​ended and exceeded all of our expectations. ReVamp is of an extremely high standard and we found Rodney (Mac) and his team willing, respectful, very hard working and reliable. At every step in the process we were consulted, advised and kept up to date with progress. Their customer service is first class”

Mac

Rodney McNamee, aka “Mac”, is the main man behind ReVamp and pretty much the best Project Manager you will come across.  ​ A few things to know about Mac:

He is very hands-on on site and runs a slick project, co-ordinating all the trades and supplies whilst keeping on top of progress daily.  A well-run operation saves you significant time and money.Mac lives life at 110mph, he’s a whirlwind, but you can be assured your building project will move forward swiftly and precisely, communicating prompting with you along the way where decisions need to be made. ·

Over the years Mac has become very familiar with planning legislation, dealing regularly with both the Planning Office, Building Control and Service providers. He has a good eye to recommend how to get the most out of a property, whilst understanding what can be done whether under permitted development or with planning permission.

Mac is a problem solver. He’s had many hurdles to overcome through years of building and renovation work – he’s all about getting to the route of any problems and finding best solutions to move things forward.

Mac does not cut corners.  Even if you can’t see what’s behind a wall or under the foundations, he will go above and beyond in ensuring the house is sound, solid and well insulated.

Finally, Mac is a bit OCD which makes for an interesting combination with a builder, but he prides himself on keeping a clean, organised site.

Emma

For every property development we’ve undertaken, the other half of ReVamp (aka Mac’s wife, Emma) has personally and thoughtfully selected all the interiors from the kitchens to the bathrooms, the flooring to the stairs, the colour schemes to the lighting. This is where Emma’s passion for interiors and creativity comes alive, she thrives on it, and nothing gives them greater pleasure as a business than helping people create, or buy, their dream home.

Taking ReVamp fully in to the world of interiors therefore seemed the natural next step, so Emma formally retrained gaining a diploma in Interior Design with The Interior Design Institute, launching the Interiors side of the business in 2022.

She’s now working with customers to create harmonious home interiors that resonate with the personalities of those within and the ambience they're looking to emanate.  Key to every design is always the functional optimisation and practicality of a space, relevant to its intended use, whilst respecting the character and era of the home itself.

Having moved over 10 times themselves, every design being an enhancement on the home before, Mac and Emma have learnt a few things along the way, and Emma brings this practical and creative insight to every interior she has the pleasure of designing.

Our Blog

The ​ReVamp Diaries blog is intended for those embarking on their own building and renovation projects, small or large, for Mac and Emma to share their knowledge and insight in the hope that their experiences can help guide others through the process with the things that come up and decisions that need to be made along the way.

The blog will both follow real-time case studies of building  and interior projects ReVamp are undertaking, as well as bring to discussion key themes surrounding all matters related to building and renovating houses and home interiors. We therefore invite you to sign up to our blog in the hope that it will provide some clarity, food for thought and tips to help you on your own building journeys as you look to create your dream home.
