Why choose to Build with Stroud Homes Ipswich
Building your dream home is not an easy feat, and one of the most important decisions you will make on the road to your custom home is choosing the right builder.
Choose well, and you will have a trustworthy building team which will bring your dream home to life, and make the building process enjoyable and unforgettable.
Settle for less-than-the-right-fit and you might end up in regrets, not just during the build, but for years to come.
We talk to Stroud Homes Ipswich General Manager Tom Sachs about why everyone should choose to build in Ipswich with Stroud Homes.
“We believe our build quality and commitment to customer service puts us above every other builder out there,” Tom explains. We were recently ranked #1 on Product Review for all new home builders in Queensland.”
The award is part of Product Review’s best products and services of the year 2018, selected by a community of consumers helping each other make better purchasing decisions.
And the company has made sure to not only look after their clients when building custom homes, but the environment as well.
“We build all of our homes to a 6-star energy efficient rating,” says Tom. “We include wall, ceiling a roof insulation to achieve this 6-star rating. We also use LEDs and design our homes to ensure the sun doesn’t heat up the main living areas during the summer.”
So, when building with Stroud Homes, you’re ensured to keep cool during summer using a minimal amount of energy.
And when building with Stroud Homes you can trust that your home is going to be completed within a reasonable time-frame, and stand the test of time, thanks to their reliable warranties.
At a minimum, Tom tells us, Stroud Homes offer a 7-year structural warranty, and the non-structural items have a 12-month warranty period at minimum. However, for customers’ peace of mind under stressful building periods, a lot of Stroud Homes warranty periods are far longer than the minimum, for example, frames have a 50-year warranty.
Stroud Homes also guarantees a 16 week build time for all homes under 250m2. Homes larger than this usually take slightly longer according to Tom, approximately one extra day per 10m2.
All Stroud Homes come packed with 81 types of standard inclusions. Part of the service the company provides includes a 2-hour colour consultation, as well as a tiles/floor consult so you can select exactly what you want.
Just because you’ve opted for a custom built home, doesn’t mean you cant make changes to the original design, Toms says.
“You can upgrade absolutely anything you like, we will just credit the standard item and install what you would like.”
To ensure clients are up to date with whats going on with their build, Stroud Homes Ipswich has site supervisor Dean to oversee the construction.
Dean makes contact at least once a week to update you on how your build has progressed and is generally available to meet with you or have a chat if you have any questions or concerns that come up throughout the construction process.
Tom also tells us that the company offers all clients up to five guided tours of their home in construction to make sure there are no surprises for clients in the end, and that they’re happy with the final product.
Stroud Homes Ipswich also highlights all the major events during the build, such as your slab pour, or when the frame is going up, so you can come out and be part of the build.
“We want you to be part of the action, whether that’s putting your initials in the slab, or driving the last nail into the frame. Building your new home is all about you and your family,” adds Tom.
