Step 1 - FREE Site Inspection with clients

Step 4 - Quotation

Pricing starts when clients are completely satisfied with their design. Once floor plan has been finalised we move onto the next step of providing you with a quotation. Throughout this process we endeavour to seek pricing for quality materials from suppliers at the best price available to us. If you wish to complete any work yourself now is the time to let us know. When quotation is finalised we will contact you and organise a time suitable to come in and sit down with us to go over the quotation.
