How long does the building process take?

Every project, depending on its requirements, will have a different construction period. At Michael Chilcott Building & Renovations, we use scheduling software to maximize the efficiency of the building process. Generally, bathrooms and kitchens take a 3-week period or less. 

Why do builders’ quotes vary so much?

Has a specification been prepared for the project?  The specification outlines in detail the scope of work to be carried out and the materials that are to be used. This is an important document to provide to the builder as he is able to price the works according to the specification. It will also force all builders quoting on the project to price and allow for the same items listed in the specification, enabling you as the customer to compare apples with apples. 

How much will my building work cost?

At Michael Chilcott Building and Renovations we do a comprehensive, detailed quote prior to commencement of work. You will know exactly what your renovation will cost from the beginning.  

Can I make changes?

Should any unforeseen changes arise we will consult with you prior to proceeding. Any changes made during the work by the customer outside the original quote will be put in writing with costing of materials and labour.

There are a number of variables that affect the cost of a project. Some of these include the level of finishes, materials used, site access, and technical nature of the job and level of design service provided.

Each project is specific in its requirements and is quoted according to those requirements.
