Looking for a Timber Decking Quote?
So you’ve decided to look for timber decking quotes – but first and foremost, you must choose the right builder for the job. It’s an extremely important step – one that can make or break your project. And if you’re throwing thousands of dollars at them, you want to know they’ll get it right!
And unfortunately, we’ve heard the horror stories from WA homeowners falling victim to the wrong builders. Builders that sting homeowners with extra fees, use unsuitable timber for their environment, and don’t take the time to truly understand what the client wants. It’s appalling.
So to avoid this happening to you – we’ve put together this 6-point checklist to follow when you’re collecting timber decking quotes.
Let’s get started…
Check Their Experience Level
Whilst some of the new building companies might offer an excellent service – it’s always safest to choose one with long-term experience. Experienced builders have a wealth of knowledge – and it is likely that they’ve completed a similar project in the past.
Confirm They Are Fully Qualified and Insured
It should go without saying that your deck builder is qualified to do so – but unqualified and uninsured deck builders are more common than you might think! If they refuse to show their insurance liability cover and qualifications – that’s an immediate red flag.
Check Their Reputation & Reviews
You can learn a lot about a deck building company by reading their reviews online. Word of mouth is also a great way to choose the right person for your project – so ask around your family and friends.
Are They Generous With Their Time?
Your project is important to you – and the right builder will understand that. They should be willing to visit your site to make recommendations on design, timber, and materials – as well as offer free expert advice.
Will They Assist You With Your Building Permit?
A good quality building company won’t leave you in the lurch. Experienced builders will be knowledgeable in where a permit is required and how to secure one – and they should help you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
Do They Offer Maintenance Advice?
Your builder should offer advice on how to maintain your deck. The protective coating needed on your deck will vary depending on your environment and type of timber – and they should communicate this with you, as well as recommend suitable products and procedures.
By following this checklist, you’ll soon get a feel for the price of a good quality build. And with the right builder, your deck will be exactly what you envisioned – or better.
