Top 3 warning signs of substandard builders

At Shed Boss Fleurieu, we take pride in providing our clients with professional workmanship, but not all builders are the same.

Hiring a substandard contractor for your construction needs can cause you a lot of headaches, not to mention cost you considerable amounts of money.

Fortunately, there are certain red flags you can use to determine if you may have chosen the wrong builder.

Ignoring permits

Obtaining the proper permits is an essential part of the building process. If you plan on constructing a shed, garage, carport, barn, or commercial building, you'll need to make sure you have the Council Development Approvals to do so.

If your contractor says that applying for a permit is not necessary or asks you to withdraw an application for one, that should be a big warning sign.

Shed Boss will help you obtain the proper permits and ensure your custom designed shed is built in accordance with the law.

Hard to reach

A missed phone call or two may not be a big deal, but if you find it a chore to actually get in touch with your builder, it's not a good sign.

Shed Boss is dedicated to keeping our clients informed of progress every step of the way, from the designing stage to the finished product. When it comes to something as important as your building needs, we believe open communication is essential.

Won't sign a contract

If a builder makes you an offer, they should be willing to put it in writing. A contractor who refuses to sign a contract is a major red flag.

Shed Boss believes in contracts that let our clients know exactly how much construction will cost without any hidden fees.
