Why it is important to get a builder involved in your renovation early on
Would you like to avoid spending unnecessary time and money on your renovation?
As we have found too many times, people embark on their renovation without consulting a builder, and find when construction starts that they could have saved both time and money.
Here are a few ways builders can save your renovation time and money:
- Builders understand construction, and can help keep your renovation drawings representing a project that fits within your budget.
- Builders understand the materials and fixtures required in renovations, and can provide advice on what would be best for your renovation and your budget. They can also give you a list of what you might need to get and think about.
- Builders have a commercial advantage when purchasing materials and products over regular retail prices. It is often worth waiting for the builder to make your purchases by saving you a huge retail markup.
- Builders have a wealth of experience and can impart valuable information to make sure you are on the right track from the outset.
- Most good building companies have systems and processes in place, and relationships with suppliers and contractors, to smoothly and efficiently order and manage what is needed for a renovation. This is often better than purchasing bits and pieces randomly through the project. A builder can save you time and money by using his preferred subcontractors and suppliers that he has a relationship with.
At Renovate Me, our systems and processes are based around helping the client from an early stage to best ensure you get the most from the design phase all the way through to completion. We will work with you and your architect to achieve renovation plans that fit within your vision and budget, and deliver you a fixed price that you will be happy with.
We use our relationships with key suppliers and subcontractors to ensure you benefit from their sharpest prices! We will also fully project manage your renovation from start to finish to make sure you are never left without expert industry advice, and never without someone to ensure the work is done to your expected standards.
