"Why do structural repairs cost so much and take such a long time to do?"
This is something Buildfix hear all the time and want to change.
Australia has one of the most highly regulated construction industries in the world.
But all too often we see building companies and engineers charge up to $2000 just for their inspection and report. These reports can eventually turn into home repairs that cost tens of, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Buildfix was started in 2011 out of a concern that regular homeowners were being charged too much to have their homes repaired. Not only are structural repairs necessary for a house to look good, but they’re an absolute necessity for safety.
Since then, we’ve successfully completed more than 5,000 home repair projects to the satisfaction of thousands of customers throughout Australia. On average we can save our customers up to $20,000.
Our mission is to deliver repair solutions for homeowners that:
Make your house solid and safe to live in
Don’t disrupt the structure of your home. We don’t use underpinning and we don’t knock down walls.
Are affordable. 95% of the work we do costs between $2,000 to $5,000.
Don’t disrupt your life. Most of our projects take between half a day to a day to complete.
And are permanent.
Our top priority is your satisfaction.
How the Buildfix team works
To fulfil our mission, we’ve refined our structural repair methods using the latest techniques and have innovated technological solutions for our customers from the ground up.
All of our technicians and structural engineers are employees and not sub-contractors. This ensures that all of our jobs are carried out on time, on budget and completed to the highest standard. We’re absolutely determined to deliver the best outcome for your home and your safety.
Our process is simple. Everything is FREE until the project is complete.
Get in touch
Our receptionist will take your call and all of your details. You will then be looked after by our project coordinator who will arrange a date and time for one of our engineers to come out and inspect your home.
Structural inspection - FREE
On the day arranged, our engineer will carefully inspect your home and ask you some questions. This inspection is FREE and takes no more than half an hour.
On the spot, our engineer will give you an informal verbal quote to give you an idea of how much your fixes are going to cost.
The official quote and structural repair detail - FREE
When we get back to the office, our in-house team of engineers will draw up a solution for your home. After a few days, we’ll send you:
An official written quote with a fixed project cost between $2,000 to $5,000
And a structural repair detail designed by our qualified structural engineers that will detail our proposed fixes for your home.
The written quote and structural repair details are FREE and there’s no pressure to work with us just because we came to your house.
Structural repairs with a 10-year warranty
If you’re happy with the cost and solution we propose, our project coordinator will arrange a date for our teams to carry out the repairs to your home.
Repairs should only take between half a day to a day. We’ll be in and out of your home in no time.
All our work comes with a 10-year warranty so you won’t need to worry about structural issues coming back. Or need to spend more money to fix them.
