Deciding to build a granny flat is the easy step! Choosing a Granny Flat Builder takes a little more research and deliberation. There are some key things to consider when looking for your ideal builder.
Not all granny flat builders are created equally. If you’ve started looking around, then you may have also noticed a big difference in services, building types and designs from one builder to the next. Not all builders specialise in Granny Flats.
You’re investing a lot of money, yard space and effort to create a new home granny flat on your property. Here are some critical steps to follow when choosing a Granny Flat builder:
1. Check that they are a licensed builder. You might be surprised to find that some advertised granny flat builders aren’t registered builders. Go to http://www.licensedtrades.com.au/ to check the license number.
2. Make sure they know the Building and Planning regulations in your area. Even better, make sure they assist you with the permit process, helping to relieve the pressure of dealing with Councils and other Governing bodies. A good granny flat builder will help you with permits and other legal hoops to make your experience as smooth as possible.
3. Value good communication – there’s nothing more frustrating than stumbling through poor communication or even lack of contact when you are investing so much of your money and heart into something. If you experience good, friendly and accommodating communication from the beginning, you have found construction treasure!
