Renovation Builders – What Questions Should I Ask?

1. During which stage can I inspect the renovation building project?

It’s standard practice for the homeowner to be participating in all stages of the project and to be enabled to check the project for any prospective problems they may see or not understand. Questions from the homeowner usually occur throughout the renovation building process.

2. Can I change my mind or suggest changes during the renovation building project?

To ensure the renovation project is as simple and hassle-free as possible for you, the homeowner and your renovation builder, it is essential to keep any modifications or upgrades to an outright minimum throughout the build. Pay attention to the end date your renovation builder provides you for when all your input and changes are allowed to be made. Unfortunately if you ask to make changes to agreed upon plans after the building project has started, it will cause problems and end up costing you more.

3. Who do I speak to if the renovation project is not meeting agreed upon deadlines?

When picking renovation builders, it’s crucial to be mindful that during the building project delays may occur due to unforeseen circumstances. The key is to keep communicating with your builder and discuss any issues early to ensure there are no miscommunications. Experienced builders have often been through these types of issues before and are best placed as the first point in working them out.
