How To Find A Home Renovation Builder

A home renovation is your opportunity to have the dream home you deserve at the location you know and love. There are various reasons as to why you might want to consider a home renovation in Sydney. You may be looking for some extra space or to update your existing space to accommodate different uses. There are a variety of designers and builders who are willing to take up your home renovation project along Sydney’s North Shore or Northern Beaches, and transform it into something beautiful. And this process needs the right builder that matches your wants and needs. Here’s what you’ll need to help find the right designer and builder for your home renovation in Sydney:

Reviews

Past clients will be able to speak to the quality and professionalism of a builder, and a true, heartfelt review is impossible to buy. A good builder will have a host of reviews to explain why they are the best choice for the job, and demonstrate their qualifications, years of experience, and any other important bits of information that can help you make a more informed decision.

You can read our reviews and watch testimonial videos here.

Referrals

A common method of finding out the very best contractor for your home renovation in Sydney is to ask the people close to you like your loved ones, good friends, next-door neighbours, and so on. Apart from this, you can also look for important assistance from different advertising boards and hardware stores. This will assist you in taking the decision. Word of mouth is such a powerful tool in your arsenal to get information about the contractors around you that you might not get anywhere else.

Proper Credentials 

With the referrals, you might have come down to a couple of house renovation contractors. The next step to get home renovation in Sydney professionally done is to confirm they can carry out construction work in NSW. All builders should have their license number on display on their website and written or spoken in their advertising, as required by Australian Consumer Law and the Home Building Act 1989. You can check online whether the license is valid and whether the holder has had any public warnings or paid certain kinds of insurance claims.

Contact

Now is the time to make contact with your chosen designers and builders. Choose your favourite companies for your renovation contract in NSW either by calling them or visiting their website. Explain the goal of your project and they will be able to tell you if they can help you. Some good questions to ask your potential builder:

Do you design and build?

Who are your designers?

How often will our Supervisor meet with us?

How do we keep track of our project?

How do we finance our project?

Cost

Some designers and builders offer fixed price contracts, while other offer more flexible cost plus contracts. It is important to check if your designer and builder offers one or both of these options.

Family Home Designers & Builders replaced our balcony and pergola in Mosman. It was apparent from the first contact that we are dealing with highly professional people. They have a great transparent process in place. This supports their personal approach and makes them easy to do business with. The owner, Roman Pazniewski met with us on site within 48 hours,  Roman listened to our needs, clarified and made suggestions, took measurements and gave us a high level indicative cost. Walked through the process, our rights etc before we signed the contract.  The work started and finished ahead of schedule. Although this job is a relatively small job for what they normally do, they gave it the priority and attention as any large project and they cared about it as much as we do.  The quality of their work is outstanding, the team is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, caring, have high work ethics and proud of their work. The communication throughout the project was effective The people are a cut above, when dealing with the Owner, the Business Manager and their team, the Construction Manager or any of their tradespeople we felt confident and they always delivered on their promise. We are more than satisfied and delighted with their work and highly recommend them William and Fulyana

Excellent job from Family Home Designers & Builders. I had an exposed balcony on my third floor which needed a complete new roof in order to use it properly. During my very first meeting with Roman, he advised me about the design, council procedures, cost and time needed to finish the new roof. And Paul, who was assigned to be my supervisor; he has kept me well informed about their daily schedules until the job was completely finished. Both Roman and Paul were very caring about my concerns through out the entire construction period. The job was finished nicely and timely as we have expected. Professional teams and managements, I would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to renovate their properties.

We have had the pleasure working with the Family Home team for approximately 2 years now. They are hands down the best and most professional building company we have done work for. We have built wardrobes and done other joinery work for them and find their work is of high quality in comparison with other builders we’ve had to work around. Roman, Paul, Gavin are always professional, reliable and proficient at every job. Couldn’t speak highly enough! and Marie in the office is pleasure to work with.

Family homes is a company I had the great pleasure of working for over two years. I can say with firsthand experience the commitment to quality and service is second to none. I have and will continue to recommend the company to anyone seeking a professional work environment or anyone searching for a builder on the North Shore.
