I know that selecting the right builder is important – not just so you aren't surprised by the cost at the end of the job, but also because you need to know that the job will get done on time and will last.
So why should you choose 4by2?
Qualified and Licenced....I am fully qualified and licenced. The Licenced Building Practioner (LBP) scheme is administered by the government to ensure that people working on your home are competent. If your work is considered “Restricted building work” it must be done by a LBP. To find out more, see their website http://www.lbp.govt.nz/lbp.
Do it once, and do it right.... I don't take shortcuts and don't do cover ups. All my work meets building standards and good practice guidelines. I make sure my work is professional and will last – even if it doesn't need a council consent. If your project needs more than a builder, then any tradesperson I'm using will also have the right qualifications and attitude.
No surprises...I will always keep you updated about the jobs progress, and anything unexpected that I find. Sometimes I am quoting on what I can see – and what is behind the walls or underground can be unexpected! If that's the case, I'll make sure that you approve any extras before I proceed. I will also make sure you are clear on your options and the implications; bringing my professional knowledge to help you with your decision.
Friendly and hard-working... My business relies on repeat customers. I will work hard to answer any questions you have, and get the job done quickly and professionally. That means keeping the site as clean as I can, taking away the rubbish at the end of the job and putting down protectors when I'm working inside.
