Best Way To Hire An Auckland Renovation Specialist

Renovating your home or business is such an exciting time. Adding a new bedroom, moving a wall or putting in a door are some of the most common renovation jobs we do. Kiwi’s love DIY, but thankfully we know our limits. That’s why we hire Auckland renovation specialists to do the big renovation jobs for us.

Renovating a property can be incredibly stressful and an experienced renovation expert will acknowledge that. By using an Auckland home renovation specialist, the process is streamlined to make things easier for home owners. All of the design work and planning, materials buying, building and specialist outsourcing is almost entirely done by renovation companies nowadays. The most difficult decision you will have to make is which local Auckland renovation specialist to hire!

Four Steps When Hiring An Auckland Renovation Specialist

The most important thing you need to do is decide what renovations you want done. Listing down the specifics of you job will let you find the right tradesperson or company for your job. If you are unsure about exactly what you want, most builders are happy to offer free consultations with prospective clients.  In fact, a consultation is the first of four steps in the renovation process.

Consultation

Once you have decided on which renovation specialist to use, you need to nail the details of what you want. You will meet with project managers and carpenters to talk about your North Shore, Waiheke Island or Mangere dream home.

Design

Next designers will begin to create the plans and concept designs for your renovation project. Often done in 3D, concept designs let you actually visualise what the end result will look like. Now is the time to make any changes or ask for ideas. Once you have finalised what you want, the detailed working drawings are sent to the Auckland City Council for the consent process.

Quote

Quantity surveyors, engineers and project managers will have researched your job thoroughly. They will put together a quote, often one which has a fixed price and date of completion guarantee. Many have contacts within the industry to obtain discounted materials to save you money. Or you may be able to ask for cheaper building materials to use to lower the quote.

Renovation

Many building companies will offer you the complete house renovation package; building, carpentry, plumbing, electrical services, plastering and painting. They achieve this through outsourcing to other reputable businesses. Some will offer you guarantees on their workmanship and even materials used. Master Builders offer a 10 year guarantee on their work, especially beneficial for you if your renovation is costly.  

With all the worry and stress of managing a renovation project, it makes sense to hire tradies to do it all for you. We’ve made finding the right home renovation specialist easy by just listing your job with us. With all of Auckland’s best renovation experts ready and waiting, let’s get your dream home started today!
