Step Two: Construction
Once everything has been designed and all the necessary Shire and Council approvals have been given, construction can commence! This is where you will experience the Lordz difference – quality, care & efficiency in construction. You carefully designed your new home throughout the planning & pre-start phase- now you can sit back and let our experienced building team carefully bring it to life.
Construction starts with siteworks where we do all the necessary clearing and levelling of your land, install retaining walls if required, and survey and peg the boundaries. Other building companies in Perth don’t even tell you that siteworks isn’t included in the price of the house, but with Lordz all the information is provided to you up front. The siteworks fee depends on the location of the land and how much work is required to level it and prepare it for slab down.
The slab is what builds a solid foundation for the rest of your home. We ensure this is the highest quality available that will meet requirements of the Shire – and we always consider the soil report for your block. Once the slab is set, brickwork follows.
We always use quality two-course bricks to construct the walls of your home – and these are available in a wide variety of colours and textures. The bricks are a key ingredient in the character of your home, and our professional brick layers ensure they are laid with precision and care. There’s no rough around the edges here.
The final structure of your house is completed with the roof frame and roof cover. We use quality pre-treated timber for the roof frame, this allows for more creative designs and more versatile during construction. The roof cover comes in 2 materials firstly metal (this could be colourbond or trimdeck) and secondly tiles (many profiles to choose from) we are also open to any alternative method for example metal roof sheets with a tile profile if it’s what you desire.
The final steps in this phase are putting in ceilings, windows and doors. Once these are in, your home can be officially locked up for security purposes. Your home is now in the lock up phase, where we move onto the internals and final finishing work.
