Importance of Choosing the Right Renovators

Picking the right team is the most important decision when renovating your home. Working with experienced and passionate renovators ensures maximum functionality, aesthetic appeal and a high-quality build. Below we look at the difference having the right team makes and how to find them.

The Difference of a Quality Renovation

A quality home renovation completed by experienced professionals will:

Minimise the amount of maintenance required
Improve the appearance and functionality of your home
Add decades to the lifespan of your home
Strike a balance between the latest trends and timeless style.

Finding the right team isn’t as simple as looking for the best builder as there are plenty of competent construction companies out there. The key is finding the team that can best meet your specific goals.

Make a Plan

It’s hard to make an informed decision if you don’t have a good idea of what you want and who can best help you achieve your goals. Are you looking to redo your kitchen or bathroom? Knock out a wall or two? Add a first floor addition? Do you want a single company to help with the design and execution of the project? Know what you want and when you want it. That makes it easier to choose the right renovator and determine a realistic budget and timeline for the project.

Researching Builders

Research different contractors and building companies online to find a team that suits your needs. A company’s website can tell you a lot. Look at their completed projects, read what previous customers are saying about them, check credentials and browse through their list of services.

Get a few different quotes from builders and have a chat to them to see how you get along. You also want to find people you trust and feel comfortable with so you can properly articulate your vision and get the best possible results.

Ensure They Have Insurance

When choosing a renovator, ask what type of insurance they have. This includes:

  • Builders’ warranty insurance
  • Personal/professional indemnity insurance
  • Home Building Compensation (HBC) cover
  • Public liability insurance

Working with an insured contractor is essential for protecting everyone from injuries as well as protecting you from damage to your home, circumstances that lead to the project not getting completed or for any defects in the work.
