Part 1: Check the reputation of your Builder
It is important to research your builder and to find the right building company to work with you on your project.
You need to take into consideration whether or not the builder has a good reputation, and if they are respected for their quality of work.
If you are looking at extending or renovating your home, it’s important the builder is capable of this type of building. The best referrals are those from previous clients, so you should ask to see testimonials and projects that they have completed that are similar to your project. Good builders should have nothing to hide.
Make sure the builder has all of the necessary licenses and insurances in place:
- Google builders and check online reviews
- Do a Queensland Building and Construction commission license search at www.qbcc.qld.gov.au – they provide licensing in Queensland to all subcontractors and builders
- Ask to see their license and insurance details
