Many homeowners are opting to wait for high quality builders, even if it means a 6-12 months delay. But is this really the best move? Let’s take a closer look at some of the reasons why.
Quality builders are now a hot commodity in Australia
Quality builders are becoming a hot commodity, with homeowners waiting up to 12 months for their services. The reason for the wait is that quality builders are in high demand, and they’re booked solid with projects.
Why is this so?
The high demand for quality builders is due to the current housing market boom. With many people choosing to build their own homes, the need for quality builders have also increased. So, if you’re in need of a builder, be prepared to start planning well in advance. There may be ways to speed up the process if you’re willing to compromise on quality. But keep in mind that a quality build will last many years and it’s definitely worth the wait.
It is also worth mentioning that the best contractors are always in high demand because homeowners and business owners seek them out when they need work done. Word spreads fast about a company that does good quality renovations, building or repair services.
High demand but shortage of labourers
With high demand for new homes and infrastructure, there are plenty of opportunities for labourers and skilled workers. However, what you may not know is that there is a shortage of labourers in this industry. Despite the fact that it’s a great time to be a builder, the lack of manpower is making things difficult for construction companies.
The skilled labour shortage in Australia is a problem that has been going on for years, but now it’s getting worse because of the pandemic and closures at our borders. As a result, the “National Apprentice Employment Network’s” Director Dianne Dayhew suggested that “We really need to train our own and not think we can just turn on the migration tap every time we have a skilled labour shortage.”
Long Build Time
Building a new house is not an easy task. There are many different steps that must be taken in order for it to all come together smoothly and on time, but if you’re expecting your builder to work quickly then think again because he or she will have plenty of other projects waiting just like yours.
It is not only Australia that has this issue, this is worldwide. In the Uk The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) say it’s common to wait five months for the interior of your home. This time includes installing a new kitchen, converting an old cupboard under stairs into bathroom space and removing any walls that are in between these two rooms so you can have open-plan living spaces.
Our words of advice
Quality builders take pride in their work and want to ensure that you’re happy with the end result. They have years of experience and know how to build a structurally sound home. They use high-quality materials that will last for many years and have experienced and knowledgeable teams that can answer your questions and concerns. They are also licensed and insured, so you don’t have to worry about any accidents or damages happening while your home is being built.
