Finding the best renovation builders in Brisbane can be a mammoth task, or it can be simple and stress-free. Want to make the most of your renovation adventure? Choose a renovation builders Brisbane who are innovative when it comes to renovating and reviving your living space. We have put together points of things to consider and ask when choosing a renovation company.
Things you should keep in mind:
The first, most important one is to always ask for references from previous jobs. This gives you a good idea of the quality of work they provide. If they aren’t willing to give any information, that can be a red flag. When planning, you want to avoid being talked over by pushy salespeople. Go with your gut feeling and someone you feel like you can trust with your home.
The second is to make sure you have a contract between you and the renovation builder that shows who is responsible for specific items. Things such as floors, paint colour, time schedule, when payments are due, a signed and dated contract. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You have to live with the changes made, so it is important you find out the benefits and drawbacks of any renovation made. If you believe that they are not listening to your needs, you can replace them. This is your house so do some research on what you need and want.
Choose a renovation builder who is transparent
Thirdly, make sure you have a clear understanding of the stages that the renovation must go through to get from the beginning of the project to the finished product. If you are going to be without essential amenities such as a bathroom, you want to be prepared and have back up options available. Especially if the renovation goes over time, which can happen. If you are getting a tile floor laid or replaced, you cannot walk on it for 24 hours minimum to avoid sinking tiles. Trying to access the area in this time is a bad idea. Something like that will not be covered by the builder’s guarantee.
The last thing to keep in mind is the possibility of hidden damage and/or changes that need to be made to progress. Most renovations end up having issues in the walls and floor that weren’t visible until after the renovation has started. They will need to be dealt with before the original plan can be continued. A lot of people who buy older homes take this into account, but for some, it can be a big shock.
