Building a new home can be a stressful time, with so many unknowns, it often puts people under pressure.
At Nikal Construction, we help our clients avoid stress by explaining every part of the process of building a house with them up front.
Below you will find details on stages of building a house from beginning to end in simple terms to understand. Or download our free guide here.
1. MEET AND GREET
We meet you to discuss the possibilities for your home, you can let us know your wish list, budget, hopes and dreams.
We will explain our services and the stages of building a house.
2. SITE INSPECTION
An on-site inspection will allow us to make a preliminary assessment of your land characteristics such as slope, orientation, views and planning requirements.
A number of things need to be done for the design of your home. We offer a service that looks after the site survey, soil testing (if needed) planning report and concept design.
Once documents are obtained they are yours to keep. It is at this stage we can do a feasibility assessment with an estimated costing (ballpark figure) for your consideration.
4. PRICING – HOW MUCH WILL IT ALL COST?
Doing a price for a quote is something we take very seriously. We respect that when building a home, you are looking at a big investment and will need an accurate costing to keep your budget on target throughout the house construction steps.
If you are looking for a ballpark figure this is provided at the feasibility stage. Some builders offer a square metre rate as a guideline, we find at times this can be misleading, especially for luxury custom homes.
You are looking to build a custom home with unique design and finishes, so an off the shelf price can lead to a long list of unwanted extras and unnecessary stress. Providing an accurate quote allows not only transparency but peace of mind across the process of building a house.
5. WE WANT TO PROCEED
Contracts are signed, building approvals are organised and we book in the construction timelines.
6. START BUILDING
We organise a regular on-site walk through of the project with you. If you change your mind about something or it is not quite what you were expecting we can work with you to see if we can incorporate this change.
7. MOVING IN
We want you to love your new home. Before handover of the keys we will make sure that you are happy with all aspects. We do a full assessment of the home to provide a defect free exchange.
Our commitment to you doesn’t end when we hand over the keys.We do a maintenance assessment after thirty (30) days and again at twelve months after completion.
We know that a house needs to be monitored through all four seasons before we can give it the final tick of approval.
We find it rewarding in delivering a quality product to our customers and our maintenance period is an extra courtesy we like to offer for peace of mind.
