Having a new home built is exciting, but there’s a lot to understand along the way. As the premier new home builders in Cairns, Michael Hoare Builders can help you with many of the steps to having your dream house finished. Having a home built is a different process than buying an existing home and that means you should be asking the following questions to make sure you’re getting what you pay for.
What’s Included in the Quote?
Are You Qualified and Insured?
When you hire a new home builder, it’s vital to be sure they are experienced and trained and know what they’re doing. Ask to see qualifications, including documentation that tells you that you’re hiring someone qualified. At the same time, your new home builder needs to be insured. If they aren’t you could be liable for damages or injuries that occur during the building project. Your home builder should have workers compensation, public liability, and home warranty insurance.
At Michael Hoare Builders, we are fully insured and ready to do the best job for you.
What are the Details of the Building Plan?
Building a home is a big project and the details can get lost in the process if you’re not careful. That’s why you need to clarify everything before work begins. Make sure that you see in writing everything you want included in the final product, from the kinds of windows to the colour of the flooring materials. Don’t assume anything is included if you don’t see it in the building plan.
