Wagga Wagga Site Costs Explained
Site Costs cover any processes that need to be done to get your block ready for construction. These costs include but are not limited to costs needed to level the block, tree removal, clearing, retaining walls and connecting services like water and sewer to the block.
They are extremely important to understand, not only for your budget but also so that you’re home stands the test of time.
To understand and uncover these potential site costs, it is important for our team to conduct a site inspection – often before the client has made their purchase.
This way we can make our client aware of potential site cost before the final quote is delivered. “This will allow us to ensure that the quote is as accurate as possible,” says Sales Manager Mariah Foley of Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga.
Being front about site costs is one way that Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga stands apart from other builders.
“By far one of the most attractive benefits of building a home with Stroud Homes is that their site costs are fixed and locked in before the contract is signed,” Mariah explains.
This eliminates the nasty unknowns and makes the beginning of the building journey as enjoyable as the end.
“Before a house can be built, we need to make sure we know what type of ground it’s being built on,” Mariah tells us. Soil testing is important as it helps determine the type of soil you are about to build your home on and slab it will sit on.
The engineer will determine your soil’s movement to wet and dry conditions and your slab type will be designed based on these results. This is perhaps the most important stages in the planning and building process.
“If not done correctly, this can create potential maintenance issues in the future, the foundation of the building could crack, sink, or worse–the building could fall!”
As Stroud Homes Wagga Wagga want your home to last a very long time, it is extremely important to have the soil engineered and certified by professionals.
