Go Design Solutions residential drafting services in the Sutherland Shire with things to think about when demolishing your home
Here at Go Design Solutions, our residential drafting services in the Sutherland Shire explain that when you have the right builder and designers by your side, a knock down and rebuild can be an exciting yet demanding time for anyone.
While knocking down an existing property sounds complicated and expensive, it can be in-fact comparable, or even less expensive, than undertaking extensive renovations.
Offering the best residential drafting services in the Sutherland Shire, our experts explain that there are a few things to keep in mind when knocking down your home.
Firstly, ensure you are very clear about what is staying and what is going. Remember, once it’s gone, it’s gone. If there is a garage, tree or pool you wish to keep, make sure the demolition company understands the scope of works. By making this clear from the start, you can minimalise the chances of a negative event occuring during the demolition. Whilst sourcing contractors make sure building quotes are comparable and have a well-defined scope of works.
You must also ensure all of your services are disconnected before the wrecking ball hits. Gas, water, power and telephone services must be turned off and removed where required.
If your contractor is applying for a council demolition permit, be sure to understand the fees involved to avoid any surprises. A reputable builder will help you understand what is required.
When it comes to a smooth demolition process, timing is everything. You want to ensure that you have your council approval for your new home before demolition commences. This will minimise the time between moving out, demolishing the house and commencing construction of your new home.
