Consultation and Quotations
Do you do free quotes?
Planning and Designing are a critical part of your Home Improvement additions. One of our experienced design consultants will be happy to visit your home or business to discuss your needs and take some measurements. Not all jobs are the same and neither are quotes from opposing companies. We look into all requirements such as strengthening, water removal, especially aesthetics and value for money. There is absolutely no charge for this service.
Do you handle Council Approval?
Yes we lodge Council, and keep in touch with the Councils throughout both Planning application and Building application, we act for you until entire Building approval process is complete. Our products are engineered to the latest Australian Standards (AS460) which simplifies the council approval process.
Is there any obligation to buy?
After our site visit we then bring your ideas back to the office to prepare a 3D visual concept drawing and quote. We then make a follow up visit to show you our concept ideas. This consultation process is free and there is no obligation to buy. We want you to feel at ease with your decision if you decide to have us build your project for you.
