I don’t know where to start?

Our team is great at communicating and guiding people through the build process – and we can answer all your questions when we meet up.

Do I need my own drawings?
If you already have some drawings of your proposed building works that’s great but otherwise we can provide leadership in advising you what you need to do.
What is the typical process for our home renovation process?
We are highly experienced in home renovations and extensions in the Eastern and South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We understand the building process can be big and daunting, but we are with you step-by-step from conception to completion.

How long does a renovation project typically take?
This really depends on the size and depth of your project. However, we have over 30 years of experience behind us and have seen it all! So, once we understand your renovation or extension needs, we are then able to provide you with more accurate timeframes.
We guide you through each phase of your project and keep you up-to-date of expected times across each stage. This is from preparation, to council approvals, to construction, to handover.
Can you take care of everything for me for my home renovations?
Absolutely! We have an experienced team who take care of all stages of your project from conception to construction. We also assist with obtaining all required building permits and council approvals.
We have a highly-specialised team on hand to get your project completed. From engineers, to builders, electricians, plumbers, bricklayers, carpenters.Dymond Homes and Renovations is complement by experienced consultants and tradespeople.
Can I stay in my home during the renovation?
Typically, yes. Most of our clients choose to live in their home during the renovation phase. However, this is only possible provided you have safe access to bathroom and toileting facilities.
When you choose to stay in your home, we will work closely with you to schedule building works for as minimal impact as possible.
We also require you to undertake an Occupational Health and Safety session to ensure you remain safe when around construction.
Do you have your own tradespeople?
Yes! We have developed a strong team of tradespeople who can help with the entire building process. This includes professionals such as draftsmen, designers, builders, project managers, engineers, soil testers. And tradesmen such as bricklayers, carpenters, plumbers, tilers, painters – just to name a few. We have it all covered!
We prefer to use our own tradespeople as they have been highly vetted by us and we know you will receive the upmost quality of workmanship and attention that your building works demand.
How much will my renovation or extension project cost?
This will depend on your specific building works. However, we work thoroughly with you to develop a project plan that is designed with your needs and budget in mind. We always do what we can to give you the best value for money, without compromising on quality and your overall building works vision.
It’s important to remember that this is your family home. And quite often it is actually cheaper to extend or renovation your existing home, then it is to purchase a new, bigger house.
