    Downward Chevron

    A builder should have a Certificate III in their specific field. This is usually acquired through a four-year apprenticeship which can be school-based or on-the-job training, though a healthy dose of both formal education and experience is helpful.

    They should also be familiar with the Australian Building Codes and Regulations, as well as local by-laws. This is usually acquired by experience in the local industry, which also builds quality and efficiency when it comes to the actual construction.

    References are also a great sign that a builder is up to the task - you can ask for photos of past work, and look through reviews left on Oneflare, to make sure they’re the right business for you.
