About the M.J.Harris Group

Welcome to the M.J.Harris Group, home to “every trade under one roof.” Our family of skilled tradespeople includes painters, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, interior designers, carpenters, landscapers and more. We hire the best tradesmen and tradeswomen in Melbourne to meet all of our clients’ renovation needs, whether that means repainting a house, building a new deck or renovating a kitchen. At the M.J.Harris Group, home renovations and restorations are our bread and butter. Our design, carpentry, painting and landscaping divisions work together to transform your property into the dream home you always wanted, while our plumbers and electricians take care of the nitty-gritty work. From initial design consultation to construction, to project management, to completion, we work with you every step of the way to achieve a professional and lasting result.

Our aim

Our aim is simple – to wow our clients by taking care of all their home renovation and maintenance needs professionally, efficiently and affordably. Quality and efficiency are the name of the game for us. That’s why we only hire the best tradespeople who are committed to doing the job right. We follow an extensive preparation regimen prior to undertaking any home renovation project – power washing, measuring, filling in, burning off and sanding down all surfaces as necessary to ensure the best possible finish. We assign project managers to act as a liaison between our clients and our tradespeople, answering any questions that may come up during the renovation process. And we even take care of all the pre-renovation planning requirements, working with our preferred draftsman, surveyor and engineer to obtain all necessary permits and inspections. We are not happy unless our clients are ecstatic with the results we achieve. It’s what motivates us to put our all into every job and make things as easy and hassle-free as possible.

Every trade under one roof

“Every trade under one roof” is our motto, and we live up to it with every project we take on. With our complete team of tradespeople at the ready, we are more than equipped to handle any home renovation project. Many trades companies in Melbourne specialize in only one or two areas, but at MJ Harris Group we take pride in the full-service capabilities of our talented team. Right from the outset of your home renovation, our designers at MJ Harris Design can help you clarify your vision and set out a blueprint for the work going forward. Then our carpenters, landscapers, plumbers, electricians, painters and plasterers can get to work bringing that vision to life. Since we don’t have to outsource any trades work to outside companies, we are able to keep costs low and provide you with a single quote for your renovation. Efficiency, affordability, and ease – those are just three of the advantages of working with a full-service trades company like us.
