Building takes time
The average timeframe to build a house is forty eight weeks
(twenty four weeks for design, documentation and consent; twenty
four weeks to build)
The average timeframe to repair a house is forty two weeks
(twenty two weeks for design, documentation and consent; twenty
weeks to repair)
The process for your repair or rebuild starts about six months
before building begins. We refer to this stage as design,
documentation and consent.
During this six month period you need to think about organising
temporary accommodation and care of pets for the time you will be
out of your house so that you are ready to move when builders
commence work at your property.
In addition to our over cap repairs and rebuild of homes we also
manage claims for earthquake damage to out of scope items such as
paths, fences & driveways. We have a suburb by suburb
assessment programme for customers who only have out of scope
damage and after assessment you can choose to have the work managed
by us, or to take a cash settlement and do the work in your own
time with your choice of contractor.
