What You Need to Know When Hiring Builders

Are you thinking of building a new home? How about updating your current place by adding some rooms or an outdoor area? Whatever you go for, make sure you get a qualified builder to do the job for you.

Having a new house built is one serious and expensive project. Surely, you’ll be spending heaps of cash to have everything planned, sorted out, and built. If you want to get real value for the money you’ll be forking out, get a fully licensed builder to handle the construction work. The same goes for when you opt to just improve the current look of your home.

What do builders do exactly?

The answer can be summed up in two obvious words — they build. Builders take on a range of tasks including doing property repair and maintenance jobs, building a home extension, constructing decks, and building new homes. Aside from doing work themselves, licensed builders can also source subcontractors to do other tasks that they’re not authorised to do and even oversee the entire project to ensure quality.

Why should I hire a builder?

Many people today, in hopes of saving some dollars, opt to do things themselves. However fulfilling it might be, DIY is still unfitting for certain jobs including building work. If you’re wondering why you should count on the expertise of a registered local builder, here are some good reasons.

  • Professional builders are skilled and knowledgeable.
    Registered builders are highly trained and experienced. You can be assured that they have already acquired and developed the skills needed to produce top-notch results, making them competent. They also know different building techniques and the best ways to solve problems that may arise. Most importantly, they are well informed about the current building codes and regulations that you and they need to stick to.

  • Professional builders have all the needed tools and equipment.
    Yes, you can easily buy tools from the store. But what will you do with them once the job is over? Save yourself from extra spending and find a builder for your work instead. With them onboard, you won’t need to scramble to buy equipment as they always come to work fully equipped.

  • Professional builders have reliable contacts.
    Finding a builder who’s not only qualified but also experienced has another upside — if they’ve been in the trade for years, chances are they already have a wide network of qualified and dependable suppliers and other tradesmen. This means that they can easily get you the best deals from suppliers and introduce you to trustworthy roofing experts, tilers, electricians, plumbers, handymen, and more.

  • Professional builders are insured.
    Accidents happen all the time, whether or not a job is being carried out by an expert. It’s a good thing most builders are fully insured. If they and your property are protected, you won’t have to shoulder the medical expenses and property repair costs when something bad happens while they’re doing the project.

What do I need to check when finding builders?

Many people skip this part of the hiring process and just settle for the first tradesman to give a quote. However, this is not advisable, as there’s more to a builder than the price they give. Be sure to talk to them about some important things, including the following:

  1. Their qualifications
    You’ll be putting your and your family’s safety and security at risk by not checking whether your prospective builder is fully qualified for the job or not. Always take the time to check the qualifications of the builder you’re thinking of hiring. These include a valid licence and other documents. Also, find out more about their years in the trade and the previous projects they handled.

  2. Their insurance
    As mentioned before, most builders are fully insured. Most, not all. So it’s always best to ask about the insurance policies that they have when looking for a builder. Find out whether or not they have a public liability insurance, a home warranty insurance, a builders indemnity or structural defects insurance, and a professional indemnity insurance, among others.

  3. Their previous customers
    Make sure you ask them about their past customers and what they all say about your builder’s work. However, don’t just rely on what you prospective builder will say, check them out for yourself. To do this, you can simply visit their website or business profile page and browse through the reviews section. There you’ll be able to know if the house builder you’re considering for your job is professional, accommodating, punctual, courteous, diligent, hardworking, and more.

  4. Their quote and the contract
    Quotes and contracts need to be reviewed thoroughly every time. Once they give them to you, read the documents through and through. If there are some questionable points, don’t hesitate to ask them about it. This will clear up misunderstandings and help lessen (or completely eliminate) your chances of paying for hidden fees once the project is completed.
