GREAT LOCATION, “average house” – Ever said that?

A knock-down rebuild is a great option for keeping what you like and replacing what you don’t. Although becoming more popular amongst homeowners; the questions remain.

What are the risks associated with knock-down rebuilds? What is the cost of a knock-down rebuild? How long does a knock-down rebuild take? The good news is, with ANSA, we understand. Hey, it’s a big deal! That’s why certainty and transparency throughout the process are paramount for us. We want to answer any of your questions.

What is the cost of a knock-down rebuild?

We take the time upfront to know exactly what you need. We then set up the tender based on your unique requirements. Our processes are communicated up-front, giving you an understanding of how long you will need to be out of your house (and when you can move back into your new one!).

I’m worried about the unknowns of a knock-down rebuild?

It is your choice. But there are benefits of a knock-down rebuild that should be considered. Stating the obvious, a knock-down rebuild is completely new. New builds are generally easier to maintain. They come with structural warrianties, new wiring, new plumbing, and assurances of compliance to new building codes too. This all impacts the value of your home.

Is it better to renovate or knock-down rebuild?

Our costs vary but with ANSA there are no hidden costs whatsoever. Our costs are all laid out for you upfront so breathe, there will be no curveballs with us.
