Choosing Carpentry and Joinery Services for Home Renovations
After weathering the global economic slowdown better than most countries, home prices in Brisbane and other major cities in Australia started taking a hit in 2011. While not by any means as dramatic as in other countries, the fall in the value of their homes made thousands of Brisbane homeowners rethink their priorities and decide to renovate their existing homes rather than sell. The smart ones contacted quality carpentry and joinery services and reaped the benefits of their expertise.
Cost Benefits of Quality Carpentry and Joinery
Whether you’re planning on staying put or selling, the benefits of quality carpentry & joinery cannot be overemphasised. Both practically and aesthetically, high quality work pays off:
- If you love your home and have no intention of selling, well-constructed renovations, large or small, will withstand the test of time. A solidly built timber entrance door, for example, will initially cost more than a mass-produced door, but will never have to be replaced.
- Your entry door is your home’s “opening statement” to the world. It either reflects your good taste and sense of style or your willingness to settle for the ordinary. If you’re keeping your home, you will never regret having spent a little more on your entry door and if you’re selling, potential buyers will place a higher value on your home.
These principles apply throughout the home, but with a catch. If you are renovating to sell, it is possible to overspend or to spend your money on the wrong things. The kitchen is the perfect example of this. If you have an outdated kitchen that is in need of replacement, it can hamper your sales prospects. However, your dream kitchen may not be everyone’s dream kitchen. A good custom kitchen cabinet maker like Allkind Joinery can help you choose a kitchen design that will appeal to a broad range of clients or may even recommend refacing rather than replacing your kitchen.
Home Extensions with Carpentry and Joinery
One reason why many homeowners decide to sell is because they feel they have outgrown their existing home. A better idea may be to extend your existing home. This is where a good commercial joinery that specialises in both carpentry and joinery can give you better quality work and save you money at the same time.
In Brisbane, you need planning and building approval before you can add an extension to your home. There is a lot of red tape involved and, amongst other things, you will need to submit draftsperson or architect prepared plans. The whole process can be very costly and time consuming. When you choose experienced professionals like the Allkind Joinery team, they can guide you through the whole process as part of their service.
When work commences, it will be supervised by licensed and insured tradespersons. Since you have chosen a prestige joinery company like Allkind Joinery, you can rest assured that the work will be of the highest standard, yet needn’t cost more.
Another benefit of allowing a team of carpentry & joinery professionals manage your renovation is that they will be able to coordinate all aspects of construction. While the carpenters are putting up the framework, the joiners will be busy making the timber windows and timber doors to exact specifications. When the time comes for them to be hung, they will be delivered on time and fit perfectly.
There is no substitute for quality in carpentry and joinery. If you live in the Brisbane area, why not contact Allkind Joinery, have a chat and find out what they can do for you. There’s no cost or obligation, so there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain if you decide to let the Allkind Joinery team help you with your home renovations.
