Building Advice

Giving Advice

Looking to renovate or extend your home? We can assist and save you time and money by steering you in the right direction. Draftsmen and architects have great ideas, but before you outlay money on plans for a renovation or extension, why not first see if it is viable and in your budget.

We Inspect It All

The Buy Wise Team inspect the subfloor, roof space, get on the roof, inside the roof and take many photographs so the information can be easily explained to you verbally or in a report. We get into the places that you are unable to see yourself and others claim to have been:

Are tradesmen or builders being honest with the extra works they say are required costing you more money?

Are you an owner builder and would like advice on how to coordinate your tradesman and in what order?
