4 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Registered Builder

When needing work done on your house, whether it be a simple bathroom makeover or starting from scratch, you want to make sure the job is done right the first time and that they will pass building inspections. We get it; beginning a new home project is never that cheap, which is why it can be easy to cut corners and find a more affordable option – an unlicensed person. However, are you really saving money? Do you end up with more items that need fixing because they don’t satisfy the required building code? You also need to ask yourself, why aren’t they licenced with the Victorian Building Authority (VBA)?

At The Shower Repair Guys, our team gets lasting results regarding construction and shower/bathroom renovation because of our expert knowledge and top-quality products. In addition, we are registered with the VBA so have the right registration and ability to share with you why it’s the best option when choosing a contractor:

1. Formal And On The Job Experience

A licenced builder must have undertaken qualifications and have been supervised in their role for several years before being considered the real deal. Part of this process is passing a test, and they would have overcome many challenges before getting to this point where they have learnt to deal with varying issues which they can now troubleshoot.

There is something to be said about the work of those who put many years into learning their trade. At The Shower Repair Guys, our team has the right qualifications, having spent years perfecting these. In addition, they have the right tools to complete the job correctly, enabling them to get the best output efficiently. As a result, you can feel confident that the job will be done right when choosing a registered professional.

3. Being good at repairs doesn’t necessarily mean meeting code

While you and a friend may be fantastic at doing jobs around the house, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the outcome will adhere to building code, which may end up being a costly mistake down the track. Additionally, the expertise needed to rebuild a kitchen, replace your shower, redo your bathroom or knock a wall out is a passion for most contractors which means they know how to manage the project efficiently. While the efforts of a ‘home’ builder can be reasonable, using someone who knows how to meet Australian standard requirements is most ideal.

4. Contractors have insurance

It’s the law that those working on your residence, in whatever capacity, must have insurance. While regulations vary between states, this caution protects the homeowner, contractor, and their team if something goes wrong. Unfortunately, sometimes problems arrive or mistakes happen, and without insurance, you end up paying more. Overall, you are taking a risk when hiring a builder who isn’t registered with the VBA. They are likely to be uninsured, have less experience and may not meet Australian building standards. While it may save you money short term, long-term you will feel more confident in someone who has spent years working towards their future in the industry and has all the necessary tools and resources.
