Our Frequently Asked Questions

  • We have met with some different builders who have provided us with cost estimates. Is there more from a builder we need before making our decision?

    Yes, it is imperative that you obtain a written quote before selecting a builder. If your budget is not flexible then you and your prospective builder must collate more information to reflect the actual costs that may be incurred by your site, your construction materials and your finishes. From there you can move forward with confidence to preparing a contract. Be aware that any changes that occur after the contract has been signed are considered variations and will usually attract additional costs.

  • I am worried about the size of my budget to complete this work. How can I make sure that I don’t experience a blow-out in costs during the project?

    A simple two-stage process, we offer a free consultation where we step you through the most cost-effective and suitable building solutions for your needs. This will give you an approximate idea to compare against your current budget. If you are keen to continue, we can then meet with you and clearly detail your requirements until we arrive at a fixed-price for your convenience and peace of mind. Enjoy no budget blow-out and no anxiety around hidden expenses.

  • We have a leaky home and I’m thinking about selling. Should we fix the problem up before putting it on the market?

    Absolutely. If you ignore the issue you will soon discover that your home sits at a significantly lower value than similar neighbouring properties. The best way to remedy the problem is to completely re-clad. It may take time and money to complete, but recent research has shown that newly-clad homes are perceived as superior and any losses you may have anticipated will no longer apply.


Friendly and approachable, we would be thrilled to meet and discuss your building needs. Even if you feel that you’re not quite ready, call us to step through your ideas so that we can provide you with guidance on design, budget and timelines.
