Knockdown & Rebuild

What is a Knock Down Rebuild?

There are two types of knock down rebuilds – one is to completely knock down a dwelling and start from scratch, the other is to undertake a partial one, where only part of the home is removed and rebuilt.

With a traditional build, this could mean waiting six months to a year whilst builders demolish and build a new home on your property. Or for a partial rebuild, it involves living with noise and disruption

Why Knock Down Rebuild?

If you love the area you live in or can’t find a suitable plot for a new home – a knockdown rebuild might be for you. There are many benefits for the type of build:

By building on the same site as your current property you can save on land registration costs, stamp duty, agent fees and legal costs. You can also boost the re-sale value by rebuilding a home, as opposed to renovating it. It also allows you to create a more energy efficient home than your current one and enjoy the savings it affords. Your new home will also come with a full new home warranty, which covers you for 6 years for major defects.

Modular Building Is The Perfect Solution

When you build a modular home, you can start building well before you demolish your existing house. Unlike a traditional build, modular homes are constructed in a factory setting and then transported to the building site, which minimises any disruption to you and your neighbours. No one wants to be taken out of their home any longer than they have to.

A modular build also speeds up the construction process. It is only 10 to 12 weeks, as opposed to traditional build timeframes of 9 to 18 months. This is because the majority of the build is done off site and not affected by weather, design complexity or other external factors.

Another huge plus is that you know what you are getting and when you are getting it. The whole process, from the design to lock up, is clear, fixed and explained to you thoroughly before the contract is signed. The schedule is pre-planned so there are no nasty surprises. Even on land – that other builders would consider challenging sites, such as a sloping property, the terms are the same. You know what you are in for from the start.
