Is it time for a revamp of your outdoor entertaining area? Are you stuck on creating a new design or managing all the trades? Or are there just too many options and products available, overwhelming you to move forward?
A new outdoor entertainment area can offer you and your family so much value. However there is so much to consider; design, plans, approvals, documents, products, and trades. Finding the time to fit it all in can be overwhelming.
Have you considered engaging a builder to help you from start to finish? Finding one that specialises in outdoor construction is a wise choice.
The ‘right’ builder should be able to offer you years of experience, industry advice, reputable tradesman and manage your whole project from start to finish. But with so many to choose from, selecting the best builder to use can be confusing. Without the right research, you run the risk of finding someone who is unregistered and unqualified, which can be an expensive mistake.
Choosing a builder registered with Master Builder Association will help alleviate some of those concerns.
Why a Master Builder?
Master Builders are expected to act with integrity at all times
A Master Builder is required to;
- Comply with all relevant laws, codes, and regulations
- Obtain the permits and approvals relevant to your job
- Arrange required building inspections
- Carry out and supervise building work
- Achieve final permits and certificate of final inspection
- Actively improve their skills and preserve their skills
- Be fully covered by warranty insurance and public liability insurance.
Master Builders are expected to achieve a legal and approved standard of work on your project
Get to know your builder, build rapport with them, and gauge the transparency they display and the quality of communication between both parties. These are crucial indicators of how well the build will progress. Also, ensure that the contract and design process is clear and in plain English so that you can easily read and understand it. Review the building plans and estimates thoroughly and talk them through with your builder, making sure that you’re completely confident with the process, know what is included and what isn’t. Your builder should be more than willing to explain to you anything that you don’t understand. These steps will give you assurance in your builder.
