About Raaen Renovations
Raaen renovations is a small, family-owned and run building company with a reputation for high quality work and exceptional communication.
We specialise in second storey extensions and home renovations for residential homes in the Redcliffe Peninsula, north Brisbane and Pine Rivers areas.
Our Founder – Dan Raaen
Dan Raaen founded Raaen Renovations after nearly a decade working first as a carpenter/builder, before becoming site supervisor and estimator with a specialist renovation and extension builder.
His vision when founding Raaen Renovations was not to be the biggest builder in Brisbane, but to run a business where clients can always interact directly with him, and where crews can be directly supervised.
In his experience, if too many people were involved in a job then mistakes could be made, particularly if on-site supervisors were only carpenters and not certified low-rise builders.
By maintaining direct contact and supervising each project, all standards and requirements are met, and projects flow more smoothly without delays and hand-offs.
When not building, Dan can be found on the water in one of his tinnies or jet skis, or four-wheel driving along the beach at Double Island Point.
Our Core Principles
Raaen Renovations is founded on the principles of high quality work supported by open and radically transparent communication.
Questions from homeowners are welcomed and encouraged. “No question is a stupid question” is the saying you will hear most from Dan and his crew.
That’s one of the reasons that every quote is thoroughly detailed and you always know who will be on site on what days. We proactively communicate with you so you are never left wondering what is happening, when it is happening and what is included in the price.
Your trust is important to us, which is why we don’t under-quote, and hide the real cost of your renovations with “out of scope” or add-on costs. While no project is 100% certain (you never know if you will find termite damage or leaking pipes in a wall for example), our experience means that our quotes are realistic and honest.
This matches our belief that by being open and honest up front, and by keeping communication channels open throughout the build, that our clients get the best possible outcomes from their renovation.
We stand behind our quality with a full twelve months defect warranty and six-year structural warranty on all work.

We would love to help you create your dream home. Simply fill in your details and we will get straight back to you!
Most people only build or renovate a few times in their life. Dan will personally meet with you and guide you through the process so you know exactly what happens and what you need to do at each stage. Having a positive relationship with your builder is vital to renovation success, which is why we believe that you need to meet and chat face-to-face, and not rely on email or over the phone.
Your first stage is meeting with Dan on-site to talk through your ideas and wishes. Dan will guide you through any requirements for drafting & give you some advice on what is possible for your home.
Once we know the exact scope of works, we will work out a detailed all-inclusive quote so you know exactly what is included in your renovation, as well as expected timeframes for your project.
If you are happy with your quote, as soon as you have signed it off and paid your deposit, we get cracking on organising your building approvals.
As soon as your approvals are through, we slot you into our diary and build your dream renovation or extension.
