For the past four decades, Summit Homes has been recognised for their building excellence and received hundreds of awards in construction and design. Beginning as a family-owned and operated company, which they still are today, Summit continues to employ local workers rather than outsourcing overseas for improved efficiency, understanding of the site, control and accuracy. Since opening in 1988, Summit’s main headquarters is located in Myaree, with offices also in Bunbury and Busselton.

What’s On Offer and What Are The Key Selling Points?

Summit Homes offers a number of home designs with the assurance of tailoring the design to suit any type of budget. Summit’s Myaree headquarters presents a purpose-built factory and a granny flat display home. With every Summit home built, customers can enjoy the award-winning Style Studio which is an 800sqm interactive space and a complementary interior design consultation with the La Vie Interiors. In addition, clients also have direct 24/7 access to their Site Supervisor.

What are the hurdles that you encounter most frequently throughout the building process? How can clients prepare for these?

The key to an easy, stress-free, cost-effective building experience is finding the right quality of builder. It definitely pays to undertake some research when deciding on which builder to go for as building a home is more than likely the most significant investment you’ll ever make.

Can you give your top recommendations of what to look for in a builder?

When shopping around for a builder, the top 3 questions to ask are:

1. How many homes are you currently working on?

In order to gain a fair indication of the company’s size and ability, be well informed on the number of projects the builder is able to take on. For instance, a smaller builder may be able to give their full attention while a larger builder may be well versed in the process and have the buying power to keep costs low.

2. At which points of construction can I inspect the build?

It is important for the builder to involve you in the process to avoid reaching the final stage and walk-through only to realise that there’s been a lot of errors that haven’t been addressed. Ideally, the builder can help you get more involved by facilitating direct access to the building supervisor who can stay in contact with you and provide updates on the progress of the home.

3. How long has your company been operating?

By asking your builder a bit about their history, you can evaluate the experience they have accumulated in the area and how many awards they have been recognised for to back up their credibility.
