Wanted to know of any recent experience with Better Built Homes - in terms of do they stick to the budget or are there hidden charges one need to be wary of? Thanks

Vely asked on Feb 25, 2017

Answer this

Hi, I had no problems with them sticking to budget or any hidden costs. I found the team at Better Built Homes very honest and was always kept in the loop.
Hope this helps

Hi there, so far we have not had a problem with hidden costs. They communicate very well and will keep you updated on things. They have even saved us a significant amount of money on one occasion. We have gone a little over budget but this is due to us wanting specific upgrades and not as a result of Better Built team. They are also very clear in terms of variation costs and there is no pressure to accept these costs.
