7 benefits of hiring a registered builder for your kitchen renovation

Here at GOFORTH Kitchens Bendigo, we believe in seamless home improvements that don’t cause you any stress. That’s why we take care of your kitchen or bathroom upgrade from start to finish. Not only do you not need to worry about the logistics, but you also don’t need to worry about finding and dealing with all the various tradesmen involved with a kitchen upgrade.

There is a lot to consider when selecting the right builder for a kitchen makeover in Country Victoria. Especially when regional areas may not have as many options. One of the first and most important things to consider when selecting a building business is whether or not they are registered builders within the state of Victoria.

There are a lot of tradesmen out there offering relevant services, but not all of them are registered builders. There are many reasons why you need a registered builder practitioner for renovation work in Bendigo or Victoria in general, so we have detailed some of them below.

Home renovations can be enough of a nightmare as it is, so you don’t want to risk making the situation any worse. Here are 7 benefits of hiring a registered builder and why they are important:

  1. Quality Workmanship

Registered Builders in Bendigo are required to meet industry standards. These standards include everything from appropriate training and qualifications to relevant experience and competencies. Hiring a registered building company in Bendigo guarantees that your renovations are being carried out by competent operators providing quality workmanship.

  1. Insurance and Warranty

Registered Builders in Victoria are often insured and provide a warranty on their work. Here at GOFORTH Kitchens Bendigo, all our kitchen and bathroom projects are fully guaranteed with a 7-year warranty. We want your kitchen and bathroom upgrade to last as long as you do.  Our projects are also covered by Home Warranty Insurance. This is to protect you as a customer.

  1. Safety and Legal Compliance

Registered Builders in Australia are well-versed in the various safety and compliance measures necessary to reduce risk and ensure your next renovation is completed safely and in accordance with relevant guidelines. GOFORTH Kitchens Bendigo is no different. We understand and take seriously the safety and compliance measures that are in place to keep you and your home safe from any work done throughout a renovation. With domestic building projects often involving electrical work, gas fitting, plumbing and heavy materials, this is something you do not want to leave to chance. GOFORTH organises all of these works and the various qualified tradesmen associated with them, ensuring they are done properly and to high-quality standards so that you don’t have to worry at all.

  1. Project Scope

Did you know that in Victoria, only a registered builder is allowed to carry out domestic building work that exceeds $10,000 in total costs (including labour and materials)? Only a registered builder may carry out more than one type of building work (such as plastering and carpentry) on jobs that exceed $10,000. Not only that, only registered builders may engage in domestic renovations that require structural changes, re-stumping, demolition work, or any work that requires a permit, regardless of the total project cost. Going with a registered builder means you are not limited in the scope of your kitchen upgrade project.

  1. Project Management

One of the toughest parts of a home reno is managing the project. From organising tradesmen to appliances, and differing schedules to timelines; project management can be a headache. Registered builders are generally well-versed and skilled in coordinating the logistics of building projects. In fact, here at GOFORTH, we actually like managing projects because we like the idea of saving our customers time and hassle. We have existing relationships with many tradesmen and suppliers, and don’t mind rolling up our sleeves to ensure each and every project runs smoothly and finishes on time and on budget.

  1. Building Permits

Whilst not always the case, especially for kitchens and bathrooms, some building projects do require permits. Registered builders know what kinds of projects require a permit and which ones don’t. Here at GOFORTH, we are familiar with permits and more importantly the process involved in obtaining them. That’s another thing we take care of if need be.

  1. Peace of Mind

Becoming a registered builder is no easy feat. This ensures a certain level of quality amongst those who have achieved this qualification. This means you have peace of mind that the business you engage with has a certain level of experience along with quality standards to uphold. If you add in the fact that registered builders like us here at GOFORTH take care of everything at a fixed price, you have complete peace of mind that everything will run smoothly and on budget. That means any issues that may arise are solved and sorted out, quick-smart, by our team.
