Why We Don't Give Out Free Building Quotes

Why we don’t give out free building quotes
March 29, 2018 admin

Here at Eco Building Services, we often get asked why we don’t give out free quotes when some building companies seem to offer this service. The answer is quite simple. Eco Building believes in constructing unique homes that will last you a lifetime.

In order to do this, careful consideration must be taken from the start of the project, which means that a lot of research goes into the quotes that we provide. Read on to find out why an Eco Building quote is much more reliable than a stock standard construction company quote at the start of your home build.

We ensure that there are no budget blowouts.

Whether you’re planning extensions, renovations, or designing and building a completely new home, you want the end product to be sturdy, beautiful, and exactly what you envisioned. This is why our team puts fifty hours of work into every quote that is given out. We are fully committed to delivering projects on time, and to a very high standard.

This requires the fastidious planning of every aspect of the design and build before construction begins. You won’t see any ‘rough estimates’ based on stock standard builds in our quotes. We lock down set prices with our contractors, so you don’t get any nasty surprises during construction.

We hand pick all of the tradespeople on our team.

That’s right, we hand select all of the tradespeople on our team so you can rest assured that your home is only receiving the highest level of attention and care. This means finding carpenters, tilers, plumbers, drywall plasterers, painters and electricians that specialise in the type of work that needs to be carried out in your home. These tradespeople are stringently reviewed by us, so you know exactly who is entering your home and when. This puts many of our clients’ minds at ease, especially if they’re living in the home during a renovation. Furthermore, we only choose highly trained professionals so that you know that your home is built right the first time – no setbacks or patch-up jobs!

We strive to be as sustainable as possible.

Eco Building Services only uses top quality materials, and plan the ordering of these in detail and ahead of time, to reduce wastage. We also only order what we need – which is good for the environment and for your wallet! Once again, you won’t find any rough estimates here.

We also try to source our building supplies locally, wherever we can, to reduce our carbon footprint and support good, old-fashioned Aussie trades. These suppliers are often small businesses that make handcrafted products (that are worth every penny in quality!) and require decent lead times for projects, so locking them in ahead of time is essential. The less distance the supplies for your home have to travel, the less your paying for transport, too!

We do give out free assessments.

Of course, you don’t want to be charged just for an initial chat about your plans and ideas. Eco Building offers free assessments, where we talk to you about your objectives, see if they align with your budget, and recommend the best course of action.
