If you have obtained several quotes for your project, it is important to compare apples with apples. In this case – patios with patios. This will ensure you get the perfect outdoor area for the best price. Because there is so much detail in each quote, making a fair comparison can be extremely difficult.
Here are the vital questions to be asking the patio installation company:
Are the specifications of the patio the same?
Has everyone quoted you for the same style of patio? e.g. Flyover design
Is everyone using the same roofing? e.g. Insulated roof.
Are the posts the same on all quotes? e.g. Hardwood vs Steel
(posts can impact the cost significantly)
Are all dimensions the same?
(Minor changes to dimensions can have a significant impact on the price and engineering)
Is there an overhang on the roof sheets or beam?
Are there any extras included?
(Installation of lights and fans can add $1,000's)
Have they included connecting the down pipe to storm water?
Is QBCC Home warranty insurance included?
Is council / building approval included?
