How can I ensure that I am getting the best price for my building project?

It is important to make sure that if you are comparing quotes from builders that they are all quoting on the same items.

Some builders might under quote on various fittings or contingencies in order to appear cheaper. Take the time to go through quotes line by line in order to make sure the details are all the same.

How can I communicate with my builder during the construction phase?

At Bull Carpentry Building & Construction, we believe in regular and honest communication with our customers.

We will conduct regular site meetings throughout the build, as well as phone calls and/or email as work progresses.

We are happy to include your architect and yourself in all communication.

Do I need an architect for my project?

This is a matter of personal preference, but at Bull Carpentry Building & Construction we generally work on projects that require engineering and building certification and council approval so they will need professional skills and expertise in order to make sure they meet the required building codes and standards. Well-drawn and detailed plans will save you money and stress in the long-term. Take the time to choose an architect who understands you and your requirements – it’s important to have a good relationship with your chosen professional.

Will I need to move out while my renovation is being completed?

This can vary according to the scope of the building project, but most owners find that the noise, mess and disruption of a build makes it very difficult to remain in a house while extensive work is being done. In addition, a building project will often be completed more quickly and cheaply if the house is vacant during the build.
