They have an extensive network of suppliers, installers and experts that they call on to help with your residential or commercial project. They also understand the tricky, technical aspects of a project. They are experts at assessing your build and explaining what is involved, as well as being able to highlight potential issues which may hold up work. An experienced builder is familiar with council regulations and project management and is well-versed in the schedule of construction, therefore able to organise workers, trades and delivery of materials and supplies. They are able to keep track of expenses and maintain a work site, dealing with the unexpected. Sometimes surprises occur during a build, perhaps the wrong roofing has been delivered or the wrong tiles have
been installed. A good builder will calmly solve any issue which arises, always prioritising the client to ensure your peace of mind. Your builder should be a good listener and communicator. They should provide a written contract, clearly outlining the work involved. They can also explain the construction process so you always know what is happening. They can provide you with regular updates, encouraging you to ask questions if you have concerns about any aspect of the project. Even if your project is modest, make sure you choose a reputable builder. Most companies are happy to work on a range of projects from small to large-scale.

Be confident when starting the quotation process, keep in mind the right builder for your job will make the whole process seem easy. Once work is underway, you and your builder must be able to work closely together to ensure everything goes smoothly. When the job is completed you will conduct an inspection of work with your builder. This is the time to look very closely at work done before making the final payment. The builder’s commitment does not end when the project is finished. Your contract, whether it’s for a residential or commercial project on the Central Coast, should very clearly specify a warranty on all work.
