Living in Australia, you will know that your home is most likely one of the most valuable investments you will make, not just in terms of financial value, but emotional as well.
That means that if you want to renovate your cherished home, you want to ensure that when the dust clears, you are left with a house that you absolutely love. It’s because of this reason, and other factors that we’ve outlined below, why you should hire a professional renovation and extension builder, instead of trying to do it yourself:
More than just construction skills
An experienced renovations company brings more than just building skills to your project. They will also be able to manage the entire process to ensure there is ample time to deal with inevitable problems or material issues, while still staying within your timeline and budget. As a design build company, Supa Group handles the process from concept to completion. If you use a drafting service or architect, you will rarely know how much your renovation or extension is going to cost until you get a builder’s quote after the concept is complete.
The inside track
Most renovation builders have various industry contacts that they might be able to leverage to ensure you get quality materials at trade prices. Experience counts for a lot, having a builder that’s been there before can solve a lot of issues before they arise.
Know the cost of your build up front
With the experience that a successful renovations expert brings to the table, they will also be able to provide you with an accurate estimate of the costs involved in your future project, which will help you immensely when you’re creating your preliminary budget. The HIA has a range of different building contracts for different circumstances. Supa Group uses a contract that incorporates a fixed price and fixed completion time that takes a lot of risk out of a build for clients.
Help with planning and permits
Before starting the renovation, you will have to ensure that the various council permits and insurance documents are processed. A professional renovator will be able to assist you with all the documentation to ensure it doesn’t hold up the project getting underway.
