Questions to ask your Builder

No matter how big or small your project may be, it’s important to select a builder who is highly qualified and suited for your project. The team at Bishop Construction Services have many years of experience across a variety of projects throughout the Brisbane region. Below are just some of the questions we encourage our clients to ask us. It’s important to establish a strong builder-client relationship from the beginning and asking these questions is a great way to start the conversation. It also allows our clients to make an informed decision and decide if we are going to be a good fit for their project. 


“Can we see some examples of your previous and current work?”

We are more than happy to show you our previous projects. We have some examples on our Gallery page, however, we can show more in-depth works and testimonials from our happy clients. From Bulimba to Newstead and bathrooms to house raises, we have done it all, so we encourage our clients to ask to see our previous projects because we are proud of the work we have done over the years.


“What qualifications do you have?”

This is an essential question that we encourage anyone who’s considering building to ask any potential builders. You don’t want to get halfway through the project only to find that your builder is not licenced or doesn’t have appropriate insurance. We are licenced QBCC builders, so you can place your project in our hands with full trust. 


“How many years experience do you have?”

Bishop Construction Services has been a family run business for just over 20 years. Throughout this time we have worked on a wide range of projects, from small pergola builds to house raises and building underneath, all completed to a high standard and beautiful finish.


“Will you keep me informed throughout the process?”

We often have clients worried about being left out of the loop during their construction project. At Bishop Construction Services, we believe in keeping our clients up to date throughout the entire process, from start to finish. We maintain strong communication and we are more than willing to educate throughout as well. Building a strong client-builder relationship is essential to any project and it can ensure that our clients are left more than happy with their new home. This includes keeping you up to date with any engineers, site surveyors, certifiers or building designers that we reccommend for your project.


“What are your costs like?”

When you enquire with us we will provide a comprehensive and in-depth quote for you. Each project is different, which means costs are going to vary from case to case, however, we will provide costings that you can understand. We are also happy to find solutions that will work with your budget. We always suggest allowing for unexpected costs, because no matter how thorough our quotes are, there is always a possibility of a problem arising that no one could have predicted, and more often than not, these surprises will add to the costs. 


Overall, it’s important that you trust your gut instinct when selecting a builder, but by asking questions and gaining an understanding of your builder’s processes and experience, you can make a more informed decision. Don’t forget to ask any other questions that you may have, we are more than happy to assist in any way we can, so no questions are off the table.
