When shopping around for a licensed builder, we recommend getting at least three quotes.

The cheapest quote isn’t necessarily the best option, so don’t feel you have to accept the first quote you get.

Create a job brief

When sourcing quotes, the more specific you are about your plans and requirements, the more accurate the quote is likely to be.

If you create a job brief setting out exactly what you want and supply it to every builder you're getting a quote from, it should make the process of comparing quotes much easier. This is because the quotes will be based on the same specifications.

Compare quotes

Review and compare each quote you receive, but don’t make your decision off price alone. View previous work from a builder – you might find a folio of work on their website – and speak with past clients if possible.

Be sure to choose an experienced builder who you can trust to deliver the level of quality you’re after.
