Dowling Homes

There are no stupid questions.

Here are some of the questions our clients ask us

Do Dowling Homes provide firm quotes?

Yes. All Dowling Homes’ clients are provided with an all inclusive, fixed price quotation.

Will we have a contract?

Yes. Dowling Homes use the HIA “Plain Language” fixed price contract.

Will we be insured and what sort of warranties/guarantees can we expect?

Yes. Dowling Homes carry building Indemnity Insurance on any building work over $12,000 as per the Building Work Contractors Act which protects you against risk. We also carry full Public Liability Insurance.

Dowling Homes also provide a 5 year structural warranty.

What if something goes wrong?

Life isn’t perfect. Sometimes things happen. When things go wrong, we keep a sense of humour and perspective, whilst at the same time immediately taking whatever steps are necessary to get the project back on track.

How are payments made during construction?

Approximately 6 progress payments are paid to Dowling Homes at stages specified in the contract during the construction period.

Do we need to have plans drawn before we contact Dowling Homes?

No. We can create a unique design for you, to suit your budget.

Will we need to move out?

This depends on the extent of the project, and how much of an impact the building process may have on family life. If the project is such that you are able to live in your home while the building project is underway, we will make every effort to minimise the disruption to you.

What is our guarantee of good workmanship?

We have an excellent network of experienced contractors. All works are performed in accordance with the Building Code of Australia, relevant Australian Standards, and OH&S Regulations.

Why choose Dowling Homes?

It’s not just a job to us. We genuinely love what we do. Most of our work comes from recommendation, and to us there’s no better feeling than the satisfaction of happy clients, and the referrals that come from that.
