4 Biggest Misconceptions People Have When Renovating

Nowadays, there are many house renovations shows providing unrealistic understanding and expectations about the entire renovating process, from time frame to costs. As a result, many people end up believing in things that aren’t completely true and get disappointed when they start their projects. 

Luckily, the leading house renovations and home design Brisbane company – Urban Scene Construction – is here to spill the beans on the biggest misconceptions people have when renovating. Continue reading to find out more.

  • Renovating a Bathroom is Costly

First and foremost, when planning such a major house renovations project as adding or revamping an old bathroom, don’t give up the idea as soon as you hear someone on TV saying it is very expensive. Instead, contact an experienced Brisbane renovations company – like Urban Scene Construction – to get an approximate quote on the costs. In general, the budget needed for a bathroom depends on the structural demo, plumbing needs, tiling, and fittings.

  • Ask Several Builders for Quotes

Finding the right house renovations company can be challenging sometimes. But, when you have someone like Urban Scene Construction near you, you don’t have to go around and ask for numerous quotes, which is actually quite time-consuming. Being one of the top contractors in Brisbane with extensive experience, you can rest assured that you will be given the most comprehensive quote and provided with the best services in the area. 

  • You Can Get a Building Proposal in One Day 

Here’s one of the biggest misconceptions people have regarding Brisbane renovations. But, getting a thorough building proposal from a contractor isn’t such a quick process. Namely, your builder needs time to go through the documentation, supply subcontractors, and discuss the house renovations project with them to formalise pricing specific to your project’s needs, and liaise with any other consultants, and most importantly discuss with you and confirm your desired specifications for the project. As you can see, this cannot be done in 24 hours. Sometimes, depending on the size of the renovations project, it may take 3 to 5 weeks to get the final proposal. Good quotes should be comprehensive and  tailored to your specifications.

  • Choose the Cheapest Contractor

Last but definitely not least, if you opt to go with the cheapest contractor, you’d better prepare to fail. Even though the price is one of the key factors to consider when planning a house renovations project, it shouldn’t be the factor that determines your contractor choice. The truth is, you don’t add a second storey extension or renovate your home frequently which is why you should ensure you get the best result that one time you go through the entire process. Thus, choose a contractor that will work with you to provide the result you desire.

The bottom line, undergoing a major house renovations project can be challenging. But, with the right home design Brisbane experts – Urban Scene Construction, you can rest assured that you’ll get the best possible result. We will help make your vision come to life with creative professionals ready to exceed your expectations with high-quality renovations and extensions. So, don’t hesitate and contact us today!
