Experienced & Registered Builders

Peter Wishart, owner of Facelift for Homes, is a qualified carpenter and Registered Building Practitioner #DB-U4331. With over 40 years’ experience, Peter has “DB-U” registration as opposed to “DB-L”; the “U” is for “Unlimited”, which means there is no limitation to the scope of work he can undertake. Apart from replacing windows and doors, Peter can build a whole house if he chooses, but his expertise is in structural alterations or “lifestyle renovations” as he likes to call them!

Product & Materials

We are one of the most trusted window suppliers in Melbourne. All our products are Australian made and custom-designed to suit your décor and budget. Our aluminium windows and doors offer a broad choice of profiles, colours and finishes available in semi-commercial and commercial grade products for optimum structural stability.

Our timber windows and doors use eco-sustainable FSC certified Victorian Ash Hardwood – sturdy and resilient with a low environmental impact! We use quality hardware for all fixtures and fittings, and all windows and doors feature our superior weather seal technology. We also offer a range of single and double glazing with thermal and acoustic options, such as low emissivity, laminated, tinted, translucent, frosted and patterned.

Structural Alteration Services

As our name suggests, Facelift for Homes is so much more than window and door replacements. We not only specialise in windows and doors, but we also provide solutions to enhance the functionality and value of your home. We can transform a simple window into French doors or sliding doors for access to your garden. We can install a panoramic picture window for your viewing pleasure. How about turning your tired kitchen window into a modern servery with an outdoor bar?

Better still, Facelift has particular expertise in enlarging your living space. We can remove walls and install stacker doors or bifold doors to bring the outside in. It’s one of the reasons we truly are “The Best in The Business”. Registered with the Victorian Building Authority (CDB-U 52315), we can enter into a Domestic Building Contract with you to ensure you’re fully protected! We’ll even take care of drafting, structural engineering and building surveyor consultations, domestic building permits as well as insurance. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy your lifestyle!

Professional Design Advice

Our dedicated team of qualified, professional tradespeople can help with just about any project inspired by your imagination. We’re more than happy to assist with design advice, and we’ll always be honest as to what is realistic and achievable for your home in Melbourne.

General Manager, Operations

Steve joined us in 2017 as our Accounts & Administration Co-ordinator having a background in Property Management and Warehousing & Distribution. Following an internal restructure in 2021, Steve took over the helm as our Installations Coordinator working with the trades, sales and manufacturing teams. In July 2023 Steve transitioned to the position of General Manager (Operations) overseeing all activities company-wide and providing invaluable support to our MD allowing him to step back a little from the day-to-day operations of our company. Steve is essentially the man with his finger on the pulse and your “go-to” person for all things Installation. He’s your Project Navigator through the complex world of Victorian Building Authority and local council compliances, domestic building contracts, insurance, and building permits. Steve actively keeps up with the latest legislative and contractual requirements. He also constantly streamlines our procedures to ensure you’re cool, calm, collected and, above all, well-informed throughout your project. He essentially takes out the hassle factor for you! As another upbeat and friendly character on our team (and the most infectious laugh you’ve ever heard!), your interactions with Steve will be truly memorable.

Customer Support Co-Ordinator & RetractAscreen Product Manager

Simone joined us in 2015 heading up our Customer Support team, a pivotal role in our company that reflects the importance we place on listening to our clients. We refer to her as “CSI” – that’s “Customer Support and Information”. Simone really knows her stuff and if she doesn’t have the answer for you on-the-spot, she’ll find it! As your first point of contact, Simone will accompany you throughout your project to ensure your complete satisfaction with our work. In 2018, Simone took over in a ‘caretaker’ capacity co-ordinating various aspects of the RetractAscreen division of our business. She did it so well that in 2023 we gave her a new hat and a fancy title to go with it, and she now seamlessly handles the sales, production, installation scheduling and after-sales service for this ever-expanding range of quality retractable flyscreen solutions. Simone genuinely enjoys what she does and strives to be well-informed to provide you with comprehensive information in all aspects of your renovation, from window and door replacements to larger structural projects. With her quick wit and sense of humour, your communications with Simone will be a delightful experience.

Jan is a bubbly bright light within our internal administration team and brings a wealth of experience from a solid background in bookkeeping and customer service across a variety of industries, including having been a business owner herself. Parting with your hardearned dollars will prove almost a delight, when dealing with Jan… OK maybe not that easy, but less painful for sure – especially with her cheeky English accent (although she’ll deny she has one!) Jan is a great asset to the team, not only with her brilliant sense of humour, but her cheerful and professional manner working with our valued clients and supporting our sales and administration crew. A stickler for clarity and accuracy, Jan makes a point of getting to know our clients and ensuring all the t’s are crossed and the i’s are dotted, especially in the preparation and execution of Domestic Building Contracts. There’s no doubt your interactions with Jan will always be both informative and enjoyable.
