Carrie's Construction Tips

Welcome to my blog. I'm Carrie and I would like to share some of the top tips I have learnt about construction and repair work in the home. My passion is for buying old property and carrying out work on them to bring them into the 21st century. I started out doing this a couple of years ago. I used some money I had inherited to buy a wreck of a place and if I am honest, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. I was really lucky to find some great contractors who helped me out a lot and taught me lots of very cool things.


Why Building a Custom Home Would Be Advantageous To You

Whether you have outgrown your current residence or perhaps have received a sudden windfall to boost your finances, you may be considering the purchase of a new home. Rather than buy one that is already constructed, you should consider building your own property. Some people may be wary of undertaking such a project as they assume it will take too long and be filled with numerous obstacles along the way. The reality is that with proper planning and communication with your custom builders, you are bound to be more satisfied with a new home build. So why would it be advantageous for you to build a home?

A custom home will utilise the latest technology and materials

One of the primary things to bear in mind about older homes is that they were constructed with what was available at the time. Thus, although older homes may seem quaint and provide the appeal of being ready to use, they are also susceptible to a host of repairs or simply being outdated.

With a new home build, you can be guaranteed that your plumbing will be in optimum condition, as your contractors make use of new, high-quality materials such as PVC that would not be at risk of corrosion.

In addition to this, you can have wireless technology, appliances with high energy ratings, home automation and other technological additions that would make your residence highly convenient to live in.

A custom home will boost the safety and security of the property

Another top reason to opt for a custom home rather than buying a ready-built one is the enhanced safety and security your residence will provide. One overlooked aspect of home construction is how building codes and regulations have increasingly become stricter over time. As a result, newer buildings are subjected to intense scrutiny to ensure that they live up to the local building codes. By having your home built at present, you can be guaranteed that it will be structurally stronger than older residences.

Secondly, technological advancements have introduced many solutions when it comes to home security. Your building contractors will know which tech solutions would work best to ensure that your home is burglar resistant, fire resistant, flood resistant, earthquake resistant and more. These structural advancements would be particularly beneficial if you are constructing your property in a part of Australia that is prone to bushfires and other natural disasters.
