We can’t overestimate how important your flyscreens will be during the summer season when flies and mosquitoes are out in force. Builders will usually engage window suppliers to supply windows, and these suppliers may or may not include fly screens as part of their quote.
Some windows out there may not fit flyscreens at all (on that note – check out our blog on choosing the perfect windows for your new home).
Some new home quotes included fly screens and some don’t so it’s best to check with your builder what their policy is before signing a contract.
Take your time and thoroughly check what’s included and excluded in your new home quote.
Unfortunately, new home quotes from different builders are not easy to compare. Some will include things as standard and others won’t and what’s “included” and “excluded” from your quote is not neatly arranged for easy comparison.
But don’t worry. The most important thing is that you take your time to really understand what is in each quote so you are clear on what extra costs you need to add to each quote before you can accurately compare them.
Often the cheapest quote will turn out to be the most expensive once a number of essential items have been added.
If you struggle with this part of the process try asking a professional whose opinion you value, like your accountant or bank manager or even a friend who has had a new home built for them. They will no doubt all have valuable information to share with you on this important issue.
