Simple Answers for Common Questions
Below you’ll find answers for frequently asked questions about Rye River Extensions, our services and how we work. Please contact us if you’ll have any other question.
Can I get a quotation immediately?
Depending on type of project, we aim to provide our quotation within two days of the viewing and measuring up consultation. We prefer to provide it in writing so there are no doubts as to what is being quoted for.
Is the price quoted fixed?
Yes. This is why we provide it in writing so both you and we have a record of what the price includes. Any additional jobs not quoted for (for example if you originally decided not to paint or get floors laid but subsequently change your mind) will cost extra. We can provide a new or updated quote in writing if required.
Do you only take on construction projects?
No. We offer a complete building service and can finish a construction project from start to finish. Alternatively, no job is too small so any carpentry, including decking, tiling, painting and decorating or roof repairs that you may need, we can easily accommodate you.
Do I need to arrange a plumber or electrician?
No. Our complete building service includes all aspects and we have our own plumber and electrician. All you have to do is decide to use us for your home improvement, whatever it may be. We will complete the project to whatever stage suits you. For example you may decide to do decorating yourself. Just let us know when we come to discuss your project so we don’t include it in the quotation.
Do I need to pay anything upfront?
We usually take ten percent up front. Depending on size and type of project we may need a payment at each stage of the project. Again we can discuss this at the initial consultation. Balance will be payable upon completion.
Will you be able to start the project immediately?
It depends on what it is. For small decorating or carpentry projects that will only take a few days, we may be able to fit you in immediately. Larger construction projects will probably take a little longer. It depends on the work schedule at the time and what other projects are in progress.
How long will it take to complete a project?
This depends entirely on what the project is. We can give you an approximate timeline if required when we provide our quote but some projects have external factors that will influence the exact completion date. For example for an extension or sunroom there may be a break in works while waiting for windows to be measured and fitted. Of course there may also be unforeseen factors such as the weather which may also adversely affect completion. We do however endeavour to complete the project as timely as possible.
Will you exclusively work on my project?
No, but as much as possible once the work has commenced, there will be someone working on your project every day. External factors will sometimes affect this but for the most part we aim to keep on schedule.
Will I need to get materials?
No. We will organise that aspect unless you prefer to do this yourself. You will obviously select your preferences on materials where there is a choice: windows, paint colours, floor design, tile design and so on but for actual construction materials we use our regular suppliers. For anything you prefer to organise yourself ensure you let us know when we come to discuss your project so we don’t include it on the quotation.
