MEDIA INFORMATION

Enter and track your renovation budget and expenses from anywhere at any time!

The founders of this app were undertaking home renovations and quickly realised that there was no easy to use mobile app where they could manage and track their project budgets. Most renovators still use spreadsheets, which were frustratingly complex, and meant that they couldn’t be shared in real-time with their spouses aka the project managers :). They also wanted a single repository where they could store any information relevant to their renovation project such as supplier contacts, invoices, receipts, and design ideas to ensure it was a success. BudgetMyReno has the following advanced features:

This app appeals to renovators as well as small to medium-sized property developers who manage their own renovation projects. Contact Us if you have any questions about the app, or if you like a promo code for review. We can also set up a demo account if you want to give it a spin.
