A builder is just a builder right?

What you need to know about choosing a builder with Director of Nexus Home Improvements, Matt Keogh.


 

Customer experience is the biggest factor when choosing a builder. You aren’t just purchasing products, you are purchasing a home, your home - something in which to make your life better! Therefore your builder should always make the building process enjoyable for both of you by focusing on providing a premium customer experience as well as a premium product.  

Choose a builder that is suitably experienced. This helps to ensure that there are no costly mistakes made along the way and that you can put your complete trust into them, knowing that you will receive your dream home at the end of the process.

Choose a builder who you feel comfortable with, it's important to be working with someone that will follow your instruction if need be.

How did you find this builder? A lot of quality builders will source their work through referrals and word of mouth, so speak to your friends, look online, read reviews, can they show you current examples of their work, where was the last house they built? 

Big - but not too big is important. Ideally it’s best to deal with a boutique company where the director or owner will personally work on your project - they will have a support system of supervisors, trades and designers that will assist with the day to day running of your project.

Building with Nexus you are always in contact with a director which allows for organised communication throughout your building process.

Something that we love about Nexus is their Prefab 'pods'. They are a super modern ‘pod’ addition which contrasts perfectly against the traditional and/or original facade of your home. The ‘pod’ addition is a modular extension, which in basic terms means it is pre-made and finished offsite and then craned into place (scroll down for progress pics), this allows for a faster build time, less chaos at your home over an extended period of time and it’s obviously just pretty amazing!

Exterior Paint Trends 2018...

 
 

The end of 2017 is soooo close, 10 sleeps close to be precise... so it's time to start looking to the new year and what trends will be flooding our screens and pages. 

For our first trend report of 2018 let's talk about exteriors! The exterior of your home is just as important as the interior, however it sometimes gets forgotten about, neglected or just left until last, and it's time that changed.

The exterior of your home is the first thing people see when they visit you, it's the first thing you see when you arrive home and it gives everyone an idea of what they can find inside... So whether it's cute and quaint, modern and bold or minimalist and refined, it's time to bring your exterior into 2018 and the easiest way to do that, is with paint!
