Why is it important to choose a Quality Builder?
If you’re planning to build a new home, you’ll be presented with numerous options and choices. This includes picking a builder, choosing a suburb, and selecting your new home’s colour scheme. But the very first and the most significant thing that should be considered when making your decision is whether quality or quantity is more important to you.
There is a lot of difference between builders that focus on quality and those that focus on quantity, but unfortunately this difference is often ignored when choosing a new home builder.
If you want attention paid to the little things in your home, you must chose a builder who focuses on quality. Some builders seem to be able to offer a large home with many extras at very appealing prices. As the saying goes, if the something seems to be good to be true then it usually is. These packages may appear attractive, but it is critical to understand how these ‘special prices’ are offered: to absorb the cost of providing all of you these additional inclusions, most builders will cut expenses by bringing down the standard of the quality of the home.
If you choose builders that prioritise quantity of builds over the quality of the build, you can expect to experience some or all of the following issues:
Structural defects: This is perhaps the most serious and expensive issue. The foundation, windows, doors and roof may not be structurally sound and fitted correctly.
Maintenance problems: When the builders use low quality products and materials in the construction of your homes to save costs, they will start fading, breaking and cracking before time. It will cost you more in maintenance from the outset.
Comfort issues: Your level of comfort in your new home also relates to the quality of your construction. A quality builder will make your home more stylish, comfortable and enjoyable. When a builder compromises on quality, you will feel it – something not quite straight, a blemish visible in natural light, painting that is not quiet perfect.
Resale value: What about if something happens in your life that requires you to sell your new home? A home built with a focus on quality will always achieve a higher price. The value that you recognise in a home built by a quality builder will be recognised by prospective purchasers.
Some other reasons why builders may offer low cost while claiming that they will construct a high quality home-
· They have not done proper research on your requested features
· They will decrease the quality of the products used in the construction
· They are eliminating some features that you requested
If you’re wanting a builder who prioritises quality over quantity, do your research before signing a contract. Many companies market themselves as ‘quality builders, when in actual fact they just aiming to add to the number of homes that they build without caring about the impact on their clients. Brisbane is considered to one the best areas to invest in property in Australia, but even people who know the local area should make sure they do their research thoroughly to ensure that they engage the correct quality builder for their requirements.
