Renovations are exciting and rewarding! That’s the way we like to look at it, uncovering history that’s been buried in wall cavities, or beneath floors.  On a recent job we found some very old newspaper from the 1800s which, the client has since framed. It is a unique finishing touch to their renovated room.

Selecting a builder with experience making alterations to existing structures should be the top priority when selecting a builder for your renovation. This will avoid potential costly mistakes and under quoting.

When you make alterations and additions to an existing dwelling, all aspects including existing framing etc, needs to conform to the current building standards.

On older homes, existing footings/foundations and framing spans will often not conform to current BCA Standards. If this is overlooked at the planning stage, your renovation may not be able to proceed until these changes are made.

This can be a considerable percentage of the cost of your renovation; it is necessary to know all costs before the building starts, to ensure you can achieve your desired result within budget.

H&M have extensive local knowledge of hidden costs faced with renovations, and will undertake and inspection to ensure you are fully aware of any structural defects at quoting stage.
