Selecting a Builder to build your dream

Posted: 2016-06-28

Selecting a builder to entrust with the task of building your new home can often be a difficult decision. Whether you are planning a fully custom home or are looking for your ideal ‘off the shelf’ design, you want to make sure that you get it right and select a builder that can not only produce a beautiful new home but deliver a stress free building experienceBallarat Builder David Gordon and the team at D.R. Gordon Building have the skills and expertise to look after your new home build and ensure a smooth process and a quality finished product.

We have listed just a few of the benefits of trusting us with your build:

Deal with Dave

When you build with D.R. Gordon Building, you meet and deal directly with the Builder. Dave will assist with your initial inquiry, be directly involved in the design process, sign Contracts with you in person and ensure the construction of your home runs smoothly from start to finish. Dave’s name is on the Business, in your Building Contract, on your Building Permit so it’s only fitting that he is the man you get to deal with! 

Quality over Quantity

We don’t take on a large number of builds, only about 15-20 per year, carefully managed depending on the size of the homes and their locations. This ensures that we can stay on top of each build, we don’t have long waits for our selected trades people to be able to complete works on your build and ensures that Dave and the team can really deliver that personalised approach that we strive to give our clients. We aim to be the best, not the biggest! 

No Sales Gimmicks

Other Builders can offer ‘enticing’ sales gimmicks to try to win sales, and the old saying of “If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is” sometimes needs to be considered. When you select a Builder, there are more important things to look at, such as their reputation, the satisfaction of their clients and the quality of their finished product; whether or not they are offering you a free TV (for example) shouldn’t be the biggest factor in you selecting them as your builder.  At D. R. Gordon we offer upfront quotes and clearly list all the items that we have included in the price so there are no surprises along the way. We believe in and back the quality of the finished product we hand over, which in the end is what a client should be looking for, not just a token gift for their purchase.

A Personalised and Personable Experience

 We want your building experience with us to be as enjoyable and stress free as possible. From your initial contact with our office, though to the Design and Estimating stages, Colour Selections, Contracts and then the exciting Construction phase, our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to assist you and ensure the process runs smoothly. Our staff are all locals who have knowledge of Ballarat & District, we know the area and the likely weather and site conditions we expect to encounter here.  We are available to answer any questions you have at any stage during the building process and only too happy to walk you through your build at any stage. 

We understand that building a new home is not only a financial investment, but an emotional one too. We build homes for our clients, not just houses.  We aim to ensure that our clients have an enjoyable building experience and have a quality home that they can be proud of upon completion.
