Achieve Your Dream Home With Our Christchurch Renovation Specialists

Just hearing the word ‘renovations’ is enough to make many Kiwis tingle with excitement. With DIY a prominent feature in our culture, planning a dream renovation is on the cards for many of us. Luckily for us though, we understand that only an expert Christchurch renovation specialist should do those major house reno jobs. To prevent a DIY disaster, let’s find out the steps to take when hiring someone for your renovation job.

Four Steps To Take When Hiring A Christchurch Renovation Specialist

There are four major steps which you will follow when hiring a tradesperson or company for your home renovation. But before you start on your journey, you need to decide what you want to achieve. Do you want a larger living space, an extra bedroom or a wall removed? Clarifying exactly what you want your dream home to look like at the start helps you to hire the best people for the job.

  1. Consultation

    Talking, talking and more talking is what happens during the consultation stage. Your project manager will meet with you and identify exactly what it is you want. They will bring in other specialists such as carpenters and designers to meet and discuss yours and other possible renovation ideas.

  2. Design

    Designers now have all the information they need to create a 3D plan and concept design for your renovation job. The location of your property, such as in Lyttleton or in the CBD, is also taken into account during this stage. You are able to request any changes to your plans anytime during this process.

  3. Quote

    After the project manager and other experts (such as quantity surveyors and engineers) have researched your job thoroughly, they will give you a quote. The quote usually contains all of the services and materials required to complete your renovation job. Often quotes offer a fixed price guarantee on the cost of your renovation, along with a fixed completion date too.

  4. Renovation

    With the majority of Christchurch renovation experts able to complete the entire job within their company, renovating your home is mostly stress free and enjoyable. The project manager will coordinate the services of all the tradespeople, the delivery of materials and the outsourcing of jobs if needed, such as painters or plasterers. Many of the renovation companies will offer a 10 year Master Builder or Certified Builder guarantees on their workmanship or materials used.

We know that renovating your home ranks high on the list of the most stressful events we can go through in life. That’s why hiring one of our Christchurch renovation specialists makes great sense. List your renovation job here with us and get ready to enjoy achieving the home of your dreams built by our expert tradespeople!
