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.

What Our Clients Say

Project: When the house was renovated by Extend a Home, I felt as if we’d doubled our house size.I just felt this was realy the home the would set us up for the next 10 years. The way they designed and built into it, it felt a lot larger, like we got a lot more bang for the buck than we expected we would

Trent & Emma

Project: I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven in this house.I walk in, and it’s a sense of peace ’cause the openness and the light. It’s like people rent a place like this for their summer holidays and I feel like I’m here.


I felt like my dream had come true. This is a house that we can leave our sons with confidence so it was an investment as much as it was a lifestyle change. With renovating and extending,we’ve got more storage, especially the study and the library. As a handyman myself, I was looking for attention to the work they did, the quality of the work, so nothing is too hard and it sort of just ran smoothly
