Insurance and Licences
Building, extending or renovating your home is a huge milestone in anyone’s life. You want to ensure that the company you choose to help you through this process has the proper insurance and licences in place to protect your investment, yourself and the company.
If the company doesn’t have the proper insurance and licences in place, you could suffer as a customer in the event that anything unfortunate arises. Additionally, you most likely won’t get the high quality of work you were expecting from an unlicenced and uninsured company.
Why Insurance and Licences are Important for Building Companies
There is no doubt that unlicenced and uninsured building companies exist, but it’s vital that you choose a company like Woodford Homes for a number of reasons. A fully licenced and insured company will give you:
- Competency — Licencing tests prove that the company is competent and that they have the knowledge to complete your build, renovation or extension project without running into issues.
- Backed by the State or Territory— If you have a problem, licenced companies come backed by the territory or state. This allows the customer to take advantage of a dispute resolution program should the need arise.
- Apply for Permits— Licenced companies like Woodford Homes is able to apply for the permits needed and submit paperwork on your behalf to start the building, renovation or extension process.
- Protection from Accidents — Insurance protects not only the customer in an event of a problem or accident but also the company and the workers. This can protect you against a legal battle if someone gets hurt while working on the job.
- Quality— Licenced and insured companies hold themselves to very high standards, no matter how large or small the project is. We only use materials that we know are excellent quality, reputable tradespeople and professional staff on each job.
