5. Cheapest Isn’t Always Best
Don’t fall into the trap of simply opting the cheapest quote. Yes, of course the bottom-line counts, but a quote that is far too cheap to be true should flag a warning: how much detail has the builder gone into in the quote? Is the builder being realistic with the cost of materials and/or hours of labour? Nobody works for nothing, so where are they cutting the corners?
Similarly, if one company’s price is far higher than all the rest, take a good look at why – is the builder quoting for more extensive works than is necessary?
6. Be Realistic
Quality home renovations don’t come cheap, so be realistic about the costs when getting a quote for building a house or remodelling an existing one. Treat your home as an investment and remember that cheap renovations won’t help its re-sale value down the track.
Talk to your renovation team about areas where you can save a penny or two, and areas where it’s best to spend a little extra – they understand what counts when it comes to ensuring that you add real value to your home.
