Without a doubt, the building is one of the most significant yet could be among one of the best decisions you would make during your life.
Many factors should be taken into account when selecting a builder.
It is important to make sure your builder is licensed appropriately and is insured.
Any individual or company who plans to either supervise or carry out building work values at $3,300 or more in Queensland must have the appropriate builders licence. This can be checked with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).
It is also a good idea to make sure the builder is either a Master Builders Association (MBA) or the Housing Industry Association (HIA).
When deciding on a builder, don’t be afraid to check out their past work. Most builders will have an online portfolio on either their website or social media channels of previous work. Otherwise, you can ask the builder directly for references.
Asking for past work isn’t just to ensure the quality of your future build, but to see whether their offering is similar to what you had in mind for a future design.
Lastly, it is best to choose a builder you are comfortable talking with.
As you may be working with your builder for months, it’s paramount that they are an effective communicator. Chances are if they don’t communicate well with you, they may not be communicating well with their colleagues or subcontractors.
