When it comes to home extensions, a lot of preparation is necessary to ensure that the job goes smoothly and is finished properly. That’s why it’s always best to work with a professional contractor that is trained and experienced to do the work.

That’s when it’s time to turn to Michael Duncan Constructions. We pride ourselves on top notch work and seamless home extensions on the Gold Coast, which you can prepare for in the following ways. 

Keep Your Budget in Mind


When you’re doing home projects, it can easily get more expensive than you originally considered. That’s why it’s vital to set a reasonable budget for your home extension. That way you get what you want and need without having to spend more than you're comfortable with.

We offer affordable building prices and can help you stick to your budget, from start to finish. 


Decide What You Want From Your Extension


An extension is designed to give you more space, so it’s a good idea to decide what you want the new space to function as. Perhaps you need more living space for entertaining family and friends. Or maybe you need an additional bedroom or a larger kitchen.

Knowing what you want from your extension allows us to create blueprints and a plan for building it to meet your needs. 

Understand the Timetable


When you’re preparing to undergo a home extension, it pays to understand how long it’s going to take and what things might come up along the way to change the timeline. Depending on the amount of work involved, a home extension can take a couple of months to complete.

You’ll want to have a plan about how you’re going to live around the work so that you experience as little inconvenience as possible. We’ll give you an estimate on how long it will take before we get started. 

Let Your Neighbours Know

You’ll be living with most of the work that goes into a home extension, but your neighbours will be dealing with it as well. Before we get started, you may want to let your neighbours know what’s going on and what they can expect. We’ll do our best not to inconvenience them or get in their way as much as we’re able. Letting them know allows you to make a plan together as to how you’re going to make it work.
