Questions you should ask before building a Granny Flat

floor plan Telopea 2B 53m2If you are planning to build a Granny Flat, it is important to choose a builder that has the experience and ability to organise the many tasks involved into a quality construction.

Ensuring that it is built to stand the test of time depends very much on the quality of the materials used, plus the expertise and qualifications of the tradespeople.

Here are some important questions to ask when choosing a builder:

  • Is the building company well established? Do they have a successful track record and a solid reputation? Are they adequately insured?
  • Ask about warranties. Required Warranties must include: Statutory 6 year Home Owners Warranty for building work over $12K and the Statutory Home Building Act Warranty for all building work.
  • Ask to see a copy of their license. Consumers who hire unlicensed builders can be themselves liable for on-the-job injuries incurred by an unlicensed builder and their employees.
  • If they offer a 'Total Service', does it include: design and quote, council approvals, construction, quality control, fabrication, logistics and after sales support?
  • Can they offer a wide range of choices and costs … like a selection of architectural plans, sizes and inclusions, rather than a one-size-fits-all basic design?

Here’s just one example of the many testimonials we receive:

"I'm loving my new granny flat. The staff at Ian Cubitt's Classic Home Improvements were absolutely wonderful. The sales staff were excellent and able to answer all of my construction enquiries without hesitation and my supervisor provided informative weekly updates with deadlines that were always met. The actual build was stress-free, efficiently programmed and was completed well within the timeframe specified. Thank you Ian Cubitt's for providing me with a beautifully constructed home that I'm proud to show off to my family and friends."
