Where People Go Wrong When Building a New Home In Sydney

When building a new home, many people think it’s a good idea to try to save money by cutting costs and hiring each individual tradesman to do the different parts of the job such as the builders, plumbers and electricians, instead of hiring someone who can manage the whole project and can make sure everything is integrated correctly.

While this may sound like a good idea, the problem is that they are not experienced enough to know what needs to be done and correctly manage each part of the project, so they end up making mistakes along the way which cost far more to resolve than if they had just hired a professional to manage it all in the first place.

Along with that, just going after the lowest price will more often than not result in many corners being cut which will have to be remedied later, often costing multiples more than if it was just done correctly in the first place.

Here are some of the most common problems people encounter when building a new home:

  • Budget overruns due to poor planning and unexpected costs arising, leading to the final cost being significantly higher than initially budgeted.
  • Delays causing the project to take much longer than expected
  • A lack of clear communication between the homeowner and builder which can lead to misunderstandings, resulting in a final product that doesn’t meet expectations.
  • Subpar workmanship or the use of lower-quality materials leading to structural issues, imperfections, or reduced longevity of the home.
  • Permit and regulation challenges – Sydney has specific building regulations, and sometimes less experienced Sydney builders overlook or are unaware of certain requirements, leading to potential legal issues or the need for modifications which add to the overall cost and time to complete.
  • Misalignment of expectations, resulting in a final product which may not align with what was expected, especially if not detailed explicitly in the contract.
  • If the contract isn’t detailed enough, it can result in disputes about what was agreed upon, especially concerning finishes, materials, and specific design elements, adding further complications to resolve.
  • Site issues such as unexpected soil conditions, subterranean water, or previously unidentified site constraints can arise, complicating the build and potentially increasing costs. These often happen due to inexperienced assessors not being aware of what to look for before starting the work.
  • Post-completion issues like plumbing issues, electrical faults, or waterproofing failures which can arise after the build is complete. Addressing these can be a hassle, especially if warranties aren’t clear or the builder is unresponsive.
  • Design limitations, with pre-determined design templates provided by the builder which may not fully cater to the homeowner’s needs or the site’s unique characteristics.

Not all builders have the same level of expertise, experience, or reliability. Choosing a builder without thorough research or based solely on cost can lead to numerous challenges throughout the building process (including all those listed above).

How We Ensure That You Get the Home You Want, Within Budget and Timeframe, And Without the Issues Above

At SMR Builders, our main focus is the quality of work and the client experience.

What that means is that unlike many builders who just try to make a sale at whatever price it takes and then have to cut corners to deliver (resulting in many of the issues talked about above), we take a much more realistic approach.

We take the time to find out what your needs and expectations are, as well as your budget, and then based on those, we advise you on the best options to achieve what you want along with realistic cost expectations and timeframes.

However, this does not mean that we are the most expensive builders. In fact, we do our best to provide an affordable home while ensuring everything is done to the highest standard possible so that you don’t have any headaches and can enjoy your new home the way you envisioned.

By combining our expert knowledge and professionalism with efficiency, we are able to keep costs down without having to cut any corners to make it happen.

We also strive to provide the absolute best customer service possible, meaning there will always be clear communication as the project progresses, along with post-completion support.

We are not here to take your money and leave you with a headache. We are here to partner with you to make your dream home a reality.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“I’ve had Predrag manage four projects for me for over four years, and I’ve been completely satisfied. Predrag was completely professional, starting with the quotes for the jobs he undertook, breaking them down into sections. He also has an eye for detail and makes suggestions for anything he feels needs attention. He’s punctual and reliable, and so I couldn’t recommend Predrag highly enough.”

Helen Muir

“Predrag Loncar of SMR Builders was hired in March 2020 to carry out remedial repairs to our property, to reverse bad building practices during the original build 20 years ago, which had led to extensive damp problems in the walls. His initial inspection was detailed, wide-ranging and thorough. After we had accepted his quote, he made sure that he consulted and liaised with us at every stage of the work. When he opened the walls for repair, in several places, he discovered further problems which he carefully explained to us and then offered suggestions for repair. With Predrag and SMR Builders, you will get someone passionate about his work, who has a detectives’ nose for seeking out the best possible solution and who wants to achieve the best possible result. He is very aware that his work is in someone’s home, and he constantly stresses to his men to be respectful of their surroundings. We are very happy to say that the team of Christian the foreman, with Ivan and Caramba, were very pleasant to have around, and did not cause us any problems at all. We have no hesitation in recommending Predrag and SMR Builders; it would be very difficult to find a better builder for your remedial work.”
