    From Idea To Realisation

    Staying on Budget During Your Project

    Tyra  –   August 19, 2019

    Oftentimes, the biggest stumbling block for clients looking for home renovations is budget. It is difficult for clients without any construction knowledge to gain an accurate idea of the cost of their build; Cowboy builders are sadly all too common and give potential clients either a highly inflated price or a substantially low costing.

    Both tactics employed by such builders can have dire effects should a client goes ahead with the quotation. By highly inflating the price, the unknowing client ends up paying for totally unnecessary works. By pricing the job at low cost, the homeowners often endure a never ending spiral of costs which were not anticipated. The end result could mean a shoddy build costing tens of thousands more than if they instructed a reputable builder.

    We have taken on clients who have unfortunately found themselves in this situation. From builders deciding the job is too big for them to shoddy workmanship, we take pride in rectifying these kinds of issues and ensuring that the client gets what they original wanted to pay for; a high quality build.

    When you first contact us at One Construction, we take pride in the fact that our Director, Ali, deals with your enquiry from the outset. Ali surveys the site and discusses the various options and ideas which you present to him, whilst inputting his own knowledge gained from a great deal of experience in high quality residential builds and renovations.

    After discussing your project in detail, we then get to work on pricing the job. We have a unique approach in this respect; Ali himself works tirelessly to provide each client with a bespoke quotation. We recognise that each build is unique, therefore materials and timescales are carefully considered when quoting for each project.

    This crucial stage is carefully considered. The quotation is fully itemised allowing all clients to see how their projects cost is determined. Often overlooked elements such as site management and welfare facilities are always included. Our transparency is always appreciated by our clients.

    We are proud that each and every project we have completed in has come in on budget. Many hours are spent working through plans and having discussions with all involved parties to ensure that quotation is both affordable and accurate. All our builds and refurbishment projects are never finished until the client is happy and we do everything possible from the outset to ensure our client satisfaction at all stages.

    A bespoke, easy to comprehend payment plan is also included so clients can budget and raise funds accordingly.

    We would love the opportunity to quote for your project. We are confident that, when you compare the transparency and competitiveness of our quotations with other construction firms or individuals, you will see a drastic difference in the time spend on this crucial aspect to any build. You can be assured that the same level of commitment and consideration is employed during your build, should you choose to instruct One Construction.

    Working throughout the Islamabad/Rawalpindi Twin cities and the surrounding areas, Ali and the One Construction team would be delighted to undertake any works which you may be considering.

    Home Renovations With No Fuss

    Renovating your home can be stressful and for many people there are a lot of unknowns associated with taking on a project regardless of the size. In order to make things easier on your end, we decided to answer some of the most frequently asked questions we get about renovating or remodeling.

    1. MY HOUSE NEEDS SO MUCH WORK, HOW DO I KNOW WHERE TO START?

      If this is you, it can definitely feel overwhelming. Our advice is to start on the outside and work your way in. Renovating a bathroom or remodeling a kitchen definitely seems like the choice that is a lot more fun, but its pointless to take on a project like this when your roof is leaking or you have foundation issues. Once the major structural aspects have been taken care of to protect the building itself, you can work your way inside. Once inside, our suggestion is to start with any areas that are causing you stress and go from there.

    2. HOW DO I CHOOSE A GOOD CONTRACTOR?

      This is such an important part of any project going well! Some things to look out for are good communication and how openly they discuss the details of their work plan. It is so important that you are all on the same page in order to insure that you are getting what you are looking for. Feel free to ask questions too!

      Another important aspect is finding out what their plan is to keep your living space clean. Taking on a renovation in your home is stressful enough as it is. The people you invite to work in your home should not add to that stress, but instead should respect your space by keeping it as clean as possible throughout the project.

      The last and maybe the most important thing to look for is how comfortable they make you feel. Does the contractor listen when you are talking? Do they answer your questions patiently? Remember this person is going to be working closely with you for a period of time so make sure you get a long with them.

    3. OUR PROJECT IS NEARLY FINISHED, WHAT SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR ON THE HOME STRETCH?

      Before you submit the final payment to your contractor, you should complete a walkthrough of the project to make sure everything has been finished the way you want. Things to look for are paint touchups, making sure everything has been caulked and sealed the way it should be, working plumbing and appliances and other final touches. If you see something you aren’t happy about let your contractor know so that they can get it fixed properly.

    In the end, while taking on a project in your home is potentially stressful, it should also be something that is fun and exciting. Preparing the right way, having a good plan, and having the right person complete your project, whether its a full home remodel, a kitchen or bathroom renovation, or any other remodeling work you want to have done, can make for a really enjoyable experience!
