Benefits of Building with Stroud Homes Fraser Coast

Aletha Walters - Stroud Homes Fraser Coast

Local Fraser Coast Builders

When building with Stroud Homes Fraser Coast, you will experience the knowledge and experience of a locally born and bred family that comes from a long line of second-generation builders, and with a strong family history of giving back to the local community.

“The benefits that we offer range from strong communication, specialist educated advice, quality assurances, guarantees and a friendly team,” says co-owner Aletha Walters.

We chat to Aletha about the process of building with Stroud Homes Fraser Coast.

What type of new home warranty do you offer? How long will it take to build my new home?

I had a client come to me recently and tell me about the great warranty that the builder down the road offers. He offers an amazing six years and six-month structural warranty and 12-month non-structural warranty.

I considered this carefully and advised them that this was a standard warranty offered by any builder who holds a QBCC license.

The “used car salesman” tactics used by others in the industry amazes me. It always makes me sad that our industry is known for these type of tactics.

We are authentic, upfront and honest builders. We want what’s best for our clients because we don’t want to hide our faces when we walk into our local supermarkets.

We are proud of the amazing guarantees we offer, from Guaranteed 16 week build times, Guaranteed Quality Assurances, Preliminary timeline processes and great communication from all our staff and owners alike.

What standard features do your homes include? What options and upgrades can I select?

We offer an amazing range of Standard Inclusions in our homes. Our range includes:

  • 20mm stone tops throughout our homes
  • all custom made cabinetry
  • no MDF skirtings and architraves
  • no direct stick plasterboard to ceilings
  • only Colorbond to all our roofs
  • undermount kitchen sinks
  • full reticulation systems to all our homes.

The lists go on and on. Upgrades and options that you can choose are limitless – you tell us what you want and we will make it happen!

How and when will the final price for my home be determined?

We determine your final price from your quotation.

When we move to the Preliminary stage we complete Preliminary Plans, Site Classifications, Council Pre-Checks, Contours and Home Sewerage Treatment Plan designs (if required).

Through the investigation of all these items, we can then finalise a ‘Fixed Price Contract’ that can ensure your financier and yourselves that your price cannot go up on the builder’s whim.

We guarantee authenticity and the knowledge that we have done our due diligence because we understand that your budget needs to be met.

How often (and when) will I have access to the home during the building process?

You will have five guided tours during the build process with our supervisor guaranteed.

However, if you wish to visit your home more, all you need to do is reach out and we can organise this process for you to take place. Communication is key!
