Home Renovation Firm in Perth Warns: “Always Get a Quote for a Home Extension.”

Providers of home extensions in Perth reveal why it is important to get a quote before starting a home extension.

Perth, WA, 13 July 2015 - Next Level Extensions is a firm that provides home renovations such as second storey additions and home extensions in the Perth area. They specialise in home renovations and have more than 70 years of combined industry experience. They are adamant at recommending a firm quote before agreeing to have any home renovation completed.

According to Craig Johns, Director and one of the owners of Next Level Extensions, “When looking for the right builder, it is important to get a quote that tells you exactly how much it is going to cost to get the work done. There are a lot of reasons for this. First of all, you need to know if you can afford it. Second, you need to be able to budget and apply for a loan if necessary.”

Mr Johns continued, “The last thing you can afford is surprises. A lot of builders give estimates but no firm quotes. Then, you find yourself suddenly being asked to come up with more money. A reputable builder will give you a firm quote telling you exactly what your home renovation is going to cost and how long it is going to take to do the work.”

Factors to Consider

Before getting a quote, homeowners need to figure out whether they want to rebuild, build up or build out. If a homeowner has a large land block, they are usually recommended to build outward with a home extension. This is usually less expensive because there isn’t as much structural work to be done on a ground floor as there is with a second storey addition.

Many homeowners choose to modernise by combining a second storey addition or home extension with a full renovation of the current living space. Some also choose a knockdown and rebuild, where the entire home is knocked down and rebuilt from scratch.

Mr Johns recommends deciding what would constitute one’s dream home and go from there. According to Mr Johns: “You need to ask yourself what you really want. How many bedrooms? How many bathrooms? Do you want a living room and an extra family room? Do you want a home office? How about an alfresco living area? An upstairs deck? Do you want a lounge area on your roof?”

Getting the Quote

At Next Level Extensions, they have a five part process from beginning to completion. After initial contact, a consult is arranged with award winning home renovation designer Max Sardi. After ideas are discussed, Mr Sardi provides an estimate of approximate costs. After plans are drawn, a firm contract is presented with actual costs and time within which the renovation will be completed.

Mr Johns concludes, “After the contract is signed, your home will be completed for exactly what we told you it would cost in the amount of time we told you it would take.”
