Our Build Process
Silkwood Homes are much more than a trusted home builder and offer complete solutions for every customer. We understand the importance of building and all the questions that come with it. Whether you’re looking to build your first home, an upgrade for the family or expanding your investment property portfolio, we can assure you that your building experience with us is personalized and enjoyable.
Assisting you step by step in the decision making process is our pleasure as we work together to deliver your brand new home with quality assurance. Our friendly team of staff will take you through the building process, explaining the stages of building and what you can expect along the way. Here are the stages of building a home:
1. Slab Stage
Welcome to the beginning of your new home. During slab stage the site is set up for construction and the perimeter is marked out. Plumbing is laid and the concrete slab is then poured, creating the base shape and laying the foundations of your future home.
2. Frame Stage
At frame stage your home starts to take shape vertically with the construction and erection of all framework. Roof trusses and door frames are also installed.
3. Enclosed Stage
Enclosed stage focuses on all elements that form the external structure of your home. This includes brickwork, Colorbond roof or roof tiles, window frames, windows, external doors and gutters. Rough-ins also occur where plumbing and electrical conduits are fixed.
4. Fixing Stage
Inside your home starts to come together at fixing stage as all internal details are fitted. This stage involves plasterboard, skirtings, architraves, internal doors, tiling and all cabinetry installation. Waterproofing is also applied to all wet areas inside the home.
5. Practical Completion
Your new home is almost complete! During practical completion all internal and external finishing touches are completed, as well as plumbing and electrical fit-offs. You will meet your supervisor on site to attend a final inspection walk through.
It's time to meet your supervisor at your new home for the handover process. You will be presented with your shiny new keys and all required handover documentation. Then it's time to say goodbye to us and hello to that fresh home-owner feeling! You're officially ready to move into your new home.
