Hamilton Home Extension: Picking the Right Contractor

by Renovations | Feb 16, 2022 | Waikato South

One of our favourite types of renovations here in Hamilton is to add on a home extension. If you are feeling like your home is bursting at the seams, or maybe you just want something a little larger, then a home extension is perfect for you. It can be a daunting task to add on an extra room or two. But in the end you will be left with a more functional and appealing home.

Building a home extension is a great way to increase the value of your Hamilton home. Even if you plan on moving out, building an extension first can be worth it just for the increase in property value.

With all that being said, adding an extension is anything but a walk in the park. Experts agree that this is one of the more challenging renovations. It is vital to find an experienced contractor capable of managing such a task.

When approaching a renovations company it is important to be aware of the home renovation process. Here are the 4 stages of building a home extension:

  1. Planning both over the phone and in person
  2. Design concepts
  3. Working drawings
  4. The Build

It is important to find a contractor you can trust. Through the design and planning phases your contractor should guide you through the process. By working with you to come to a solution that is ideal for you and your budget. As qualified specialists they should offer you advice and rough cost estimations throughout the journey to ensure everything is understood correctly on both sides.

Once the plans are laid and approved by your local council the build can begin. This is the make or break stage for every home extension renovation. Before even signing on with a turn key provider, ask to see some of their past work. Ask if they have experience doing the type of specific work you are after. The last thing you want is a cowboy who is looking to pull a fast one. If you are confident with your choice of turn key renovation company then all that’s left is to sit back and let the magic happen.
