Hiring An Expert Home Remodeller

One of the most important things to do for a successful remodelling project is to hire the right boutique builder Perth to handle it. Even if you are not having large renovations done, it is important that someone qualified and experienced handles the project in order to achieve a high standard. It is also important to use a licensed electrician for electrical work and a licensed plumber for plumbing work so that the work done is to code and passes all inspections. When you want work done swiftly, to a high standard, legally and safely, you need the best remodelling contractor.

Choosing the best one for you

We all have bugbears and our own criteria when judging quality. Turning up time for work each day, being respectful, staying on target with time and money, good communication skills and professionalism are important when enlisting a renovations expert. Here are some tactics to ensure you choose the right builder for you.

  • Throughly research the renovations companies you’ve shortlisted - When you have compiled a shortlist from various sources such as online, word-of-mouth, local area advertising and such, you need to figure out what sets each of these businesses apart from the competition. Do they each have genuine certifications, have professional websites and are a registered custom builder Perth? Cross off the businesses that do not meet these expectations.
  • Ask for references - Some people do not think to ask each builder for references, and some do not contact them when they do. This is a great way to establish how well previous projects went including timekeeping, attitude, skill level, etc. Ask the referees if are they still happy with the work done and how long it’s been since the renovations were carried out.
  • Check they are genuine - There are a lot of businesses working from mobile phones with a van and no fixed address, no reception staff fielding phone calls and so on. While we are not saying all of these builders are untrustworthy, the builders with a permanent address, easily accessible license numbers and employees answering your phone call are more likely to be genuine, settled and experienced. When in doubt hire a boutique builder Perth that shows stability.
  • Choose a company you are comfortable talking to - A lot of contractors are good at talking to people, making a sale, seeming friendly and so on. But you want to find a company that you feel comfortable with. Their sales staff and management should not be pushy and should allow you time to think before signing any contracts. The company you choose will be coming into your home, possibly for a long period of time if you are planning a larger project, so you should feel happy and comfortable with having them around!
  • Be wary of low bids and requests for money upfront - Money is often a big factor when hiring a custom builder Perth but it is not the only thing you should think about. Compare estimates of course, but also consider how skilled the builder are at their job. Also consider their experience, and their reputation. Be careful with bids that seem too good to be true, and be wary of builders who ask for money before they have done anything.
