Kitchen & Bathrooms
Planning is needed, materials need to be ordered and appropriate sub trades need to know the scope of works before commencing.
Planning and understanding exactly what is needed before commencing is absolutely critical before starting any renovation project.
The first site visit is needed to understand:
- The scope of works
- Will this project require council consent
- What sub trades will be required
- Materials that will be required
- Site access / logistics
- And most importantly the estimated project costs
We ensure that we get the first site visit and an initial estimate back to our clients within 48 hours of the first meeting being booked. That is an absolute guarantee and we stand by that.
Secondly, once an initial brief has been discussed, the price estimate sent back, we ask for a buyer's commitment fee once the client/contractor are happy to proceed.
This is a fee usually between $1500 -$2500 to cover costs such as
- Planning time
- Quantity surveying costs
- Engaging contractors
This is to make sure we have a level of commitment from a possible customer to reduce wasting clients' time and especially contractors' time. We are in a professional industry and deserve to be paid for our time.
Your house is your biggest investment so you want it done right.
Once we get underway we set out a contract including:
- Deposit and payment structure
- Scope of works to be completed
- Timelines and estimated sub trades booked in
The renovation begins and we are underway. We always notify our clients when each sub trade is turning up, whether via text or email or call. That is justified through our project management costs. You know what is going on at every stage of the project:
- Bin booked for Monday
- Material deliveries
- Painters starting
- Tilers starting
- Council inspection timelines
As the project moves on plenty of work is being completed and we are in touch on a daily basis with all clients making sure work is progressing and being completed to the standard. The biggest disruption with renovations is ‘Unforeseen Scope Creep’.
What tends to happen with renovations is finding outdated work or existing work that won't tie in with new work being completed. As a licensed building company and signing off work it is paramount that we do not cover up or try to hide ‘dodgy work‘.
This can put our license at risk. This comes at a cost and we notify and explain these costs to clients as soon as they arise.
Final Touches & Check
After work has been completed we tend to walk around and work through the defects process, anything clients are unhappy with, ‘within reason' we will fix for free as a part of our fixed price contract.
