FAQ About Remedial Building

A remedial builder is a builder who specialises on the repair, restoration, and rectification of existing buildings rather than constructing new ones. The aim of remedial work is to address and rectify defects, damage or deterioration that may have occurred over time to the building or due to specific events or poor workmanship.

The job of a remedial builder typically involves diagnosing the issue, recommending the solution to resolve it, and then carrying out the remediation work.

A remedial builder will also ensure that the building meets current legislation and legal standards, and can often carry out upgrades when required.

Remedial work is required when a building has issues arising from wear and tear, poor construction, environmental factors, ground movement, or design flaws. The purpose of remedial building work is to prolong the life of a building and ensure it is safe to use.

While there’s no strict rule as to how often you should inspect your property for issues, regular inspections every few years or after severe weather events are a good idea to identify potential problems early on. For older buildings or properties in high-risk areas, more frequent inspections are recommended. Catching problems early on and carrying out remedial work can often prevent minor issues from escalating into major, costly problems.

The longevity of remedial repairs depends on the quality of work, materials used, and the nature of the issue. With high-quality materials and work done properly, the repair should last many years, but it’s crucial to maintain and inspect the property regularly.

This depends on the type of insurance policy you have and the cause of the damage. Some insurance policies might cover damages from specific events (like storms) but not issues arising from wear and tear or poor workmanship.

Maintenance is routine work done to prevent deterioration and keep a building in good condition. Remedial work addresses existing issues, defects, or damage to the building.

Remedial builders require specific knowledge to properly perform the repairs. Using a builder with specific experience in remedial work (such as us at SMR Builders) will ensure that they are able to correctly carry out all repairs and remedial work up to standard.

This depends on the scope of the work and severity of the issue. For smaller issues, this will probably not be necessary. But if it’s a big job, you may need to temporarily vacate.

The cost varies significantly based on the issue, the extent of damage, materials used, and labour charges. It’s best to contact us so we can give you an accurate estimate of what you’d be looking at cost-wise to repair your building.

Regular maintenance to your property, using quality materials during initial construction, and addressing minor issues promptly can reduce the need for extensive remedial work in the future.

Building codes and standards in Australia ensure that remedial work meets current safety and quality benchmarks. Any remedial work needs to comply with the relevant Australian Standards and local regulations.

While minor repairs might be within the realm of DIY, many remedial tasks require expertise, specialised tools, and knowledge of building codes. It’s usually recommended to engage professionals for remedial work.

Remedial Building Projects We Have Completed

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.”
