You’ve seen the current affairs program exposés on unlicensed builders performing shoddy work and the havoc they wreak on the unsuspecting.
Fortunately, they are far in the minority, and the internet makes it very simple to check out your builder before you have any work done.
As Adelaide custom home builders, we have years of experience; we have compiled the following tips to keep you safe.
You should always seek a builder that complies with high standards for registration and licensing. In South Australia, the Office of Consumer and Business Services offers a free online license search to verify your builder is fully licensed and registered.
Professional Association Membership
Professional associations are very active in the training and compliance standards for their members, ensuring professional conduct and investigating any complaints regarding member conduct.
At Serenity Homes, we are members of the Housing Industry Association (HIA) in South Australia
The HIA recognise the excellence of their members with annual awards. These award recipients are recognised by their peers as providing innovative and exceptional solutions for their customers.
You can find out who sets the bar in the industry by having a look at recent recipients and nominations on the association websites. Check out our awards here.
Custom Home Builders
As Adelaide custom home builders, we take particular pride in our work. Each home is a piece of craftsmanship that we want to last a lifetime, and we know that other custom home builders share our enthusiasm for the trade.
There is a gap between project home builders and custom home builders, both in their approach and in their execution - if you’re seeking the best quality work, we strongly recommend a custom home builder.
The housing industry is highly regulated, and South Australian builders lead the way in innovative construction techniques and quality assurance practices.
