Guide To Hiring Wellington Home Renovation Specialists

Renovating your home ranks as one of life's most stressful events, right up there with weddings and having kids. Luckily though, we acknowledge that major house renovations really need to be done by experts. That’s why we need to just sit back, relax and let our local Wellington renovation specialists to do all the work for us.

Most renovation companies nowadays work as a one stop shop. They have streamlined the process and most will do all the designing and building themselves. The hardest decision homeowners have to make is deciding which of the capital’s renovation experts to hire.

Four Steps When Hiring A Wellington Renovation Specialist

Before seeking out tradespeople, make a specific list of what you want done on your property. Once your list is complete, it’s time to start the renovation process with the company of your choice.

Consultation

Nailing done the specifics of your renovation project occurs during step one. You will meet with a project manager to discuss the home of your dreams and how a renovation will achieve that. They can also offer suggestions about your ideas and even come up with things you hadn’t even thought of.

Design

Your project manager will share your ideas with a designer who will then create the plans and concept designs for your renovation project. With the majority of plans created in 3D, you will be able to actually get a sense of what your home will actually look like. Once you have agreed on the design and made any changes, your plans will be sent to the Auckland City Council to go through the building consent process.

Quote

A quote will be given for your renovation job after quantity surveyors, engineers and your project manager have thoroughly researched it. Many New Lynn or Henderson renovation specialists offer fixed price fees and guaranteed completion dates too. Materials will be included within the quote, as they are most probably able to source them at a lower cost by bulk ordering.

Renovation

Finally comes the exciting bit; the renovation itself. Your project manager will coordinate all of the tradespeople and materials, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and to schedule. Your chosen company may offer a 10 year Master Builder or Certified Builder guarantee on their workmanship and materials. While it probably won’t be needed, it’s a great security blanket for a homeowner to have.

Now is the time to act on your dreams and get your renovation started! List your renovation job today and together with our experts, we will achieve your dream home.
