All the builders in our network are vetted to very high standards by TrustCo and have been recommended by people just like you, who have used their services. We only suggest builders we would use ourselves and guarantee to connect you with professionals you can trust.

How do we choose the best Brisbane builders for our network?

All builders are vet thoroughly before being accepted to our network. With over two decades of experience in the industry, we know exactly what to look for when assessing the quality of builders. If it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for you and we guarantee only the best builders make the cut.

Here’s how we vet the builders in our network:

  1. Clean QBCC Licenses with No infringements. This helps guarantee their impeccable performance in the trade and holds high for reputation and quality standards.

  2. Minimum of 5 years experience in the field with most having 10 to 20 years of experience. Why 5 years? Based on our insider knowledge of the building industry, around 75% of builders go out of business within the first 5 years and they are the reason for most of the horror build stories you hear about.
  3. We perform financial background checks on all our builders to make sure that they are stable companies. We also ensure that they are insuring a certain amount of work each year and steady growth to guarantee industry knowledge and know-how.
  4. TrustCo goes the extra mile by talking with each builder to find out their strengths, weaknesses and their comfort zone. This helps us identify what types of projects are most suitable for which builder and thus allows us to connect homeowners with highly experienced builders based on the type of project and experience.
  5. All of our builder’s quotes are very well presented and detail all aspects of the project such as inclusions, exclusions and the scope of work. Everything is clear and precise and the builders are always available to go through their quotes with clients and to provide expert advice on where savings can be made. All of our builders have extensive knowledge in their specialised areas and, in most cases, also have in-house designers to help make alterations.
  6. We do our due diligence online as well to ensure that all of our builders have a strong online presence and only have positive reviews on their website, local citations, social media, and so on.
  7. Our builders offer transparency with the ability for you to view any of their past projects upon request. This will help you identify their building approach, style and technique for you to decide whether they make a good fit for your project.

Our builders provide the following services

Custom-styled homes

Renovations & extensions

House & land turnkey packages

Exclusive in-house designs & designers to help create your home

All builders in our network provide free estimates and meet with clients prior to doing a detailed itemised quote. Thanks to experience and professionalism, these estimates are usually pretty much on the money give or take a 5% difference.

Understanding builder quotes

As part of our dedication to providing transparency, the builders that make part of our network vary from one to another. To provide the best service possible for people just like you, our builders have full autonomy over the way they negotiate their building quotes.

Some builders may charge for quotes while others may not.

You will commonly find this when looking for quotes from all types of builders Brisbane has available. Technically speaking, all builders charge for quotes with the free ones incorporating the builders quote in the final quote and are reimbursed once they win the contract.

As a quote can take up to 50 hours to complete when done thoroughly, you should not be swayed from a builder who charges to quote compared to one that doesn’t charge for the quote. You do get what you pay for and the effort spent is well-deserved.

Read this blog post to learn more about why builders charge for quotes and why you should not necessarily be deterred from one that does.
