Building a home extension is often a more complicated task than many homeowners first think. There are a million and one things that your home extension builder will need to consider and manage including the overall design, materials and trades.
Find a reputable building professional who is appropriately qualified, licensed and who has the experience to help you plan and execute your extension project. It is also worth checking that your selected builder professional carries the appropriate insurance relevant to the state in which you reside. You may check these details with local licensing authorities and the relevant building associations.
After you have selected a builder to help you with your home extensions, there are many functions that you can expect them to fulfill. Firstly, you should do your homework and make sure the builder has good experience in producing quality home extensions, as they will be responsible for all general building work and the actual construction process. They should also provide all necessary equipment and material required for the home extension, and have the ability to arrange other tradesmen such as plumbers or electricians should they also be required in the process.
Builders typically charge on a square metre basis, and could range from anywhere from $700 per square metre to $2,000 per square metre. This range will vary according to the experience of the builder in question and the quality of the materials they use. Other costs to consider include plans, surveys and approvals which all add up to a significant amount - all before any work commences.
