If you’re renovating your home or commercial space in Tauranga, one of the most important decisions you will make is who to work with. The right builder will carry out a quality build, follow your vision and communicate with you along the way. But how do you know who to choose? This guide should help you select the best building company for your next renovation.
Look for a reputable building company
There are a lot of builders in Tauranga – it’s a good idea to compare a few and make sure you are choosing a reputable building company. You can do this due diligence yourself, or work with a building broker who can do it on your behalf.
You are looking for a building company with a solid reputation for the quality of their work and customer satisfaction. You might want to know how long the company has been in business and learn about their industry relationships. It’s also a good idea to choose Registered Master Builders as this ensures they have met certain criteria around experience, qualifications, workmanship and ethics.
Your builder’s past work
Become familiar with projects your builders have worked on in order to make sure their quality is stellar. You can look in person, online and in any print media they have to showcase their past work. By looking at previous renovations they have carried out, you can really get a feel for the size and scope of their usual projects and make sure their style suits your own.
Past client referrals
A good builder is one that leaves a slew of happy customers in his wake. From website testimonials to word-of-mouth, positive referrals are an excellent sign that the builder you’re entrusting with your renovation is dedicated and experienced, trustworthy and capable.
New builds and renovations are very different sectors in the world of building. If you are renovating your home or workplace, it’s a good idea to find a builder who specialises in and is well-versed in all things renovations.
Trust your gut
Finally, when all else is said and done, there’s a lot to be said for trusting your instinct. Choose a builder who you get a good feeling about, who listens when you describe your vision for the project and who is someone you will feel comfortable communicating with throughout the project.
