Unfortunately for WA residents, the cost of home renovation services in the state has gotten steeper over the past year. Based on pricing information from ServiceSeeking.com.au, the average price of household renovations in the state rose by a further 8%. From only $60/hr last year, the median rate is now $65/hr.
Premium renovation companies raised their fees even higher; the cost of premium renos increased by 21% and is now at $85/hr. With prices this high, it's not surprising to see many homeowners looking for a more affordable option. Fortunately, the cost of budget renovations remained stable over the past year, so you can still hire budget renovators at approximately $50/hr.
Renovation costs in Australia generally exhibited an upward trend. Aside from WA, places like ACT, NSW, SA, and Tas also saw higher rates for home renovations this year. The average cost of renos remained unchanged in Qld and Vic, but no state or territory experienced lower home renovation prices for FY15.
