Six things to consider before signing a contract with WA builders

When it comes to building your own home, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement. But considering that it’s likely to be one of your biggest financial investments, it’s vital to do your research first. Here’s what you need to know before signing a contract or preliminary agreement with any home builders in Perth.


The Concrete Slab

The concrete slab needs to be durable and of the highest quality to enhance the lifespan of your new home. In an endeavour to save costs, some home builders will use slabs as thin as 75mm. At Persona Homes, we won’t use anything less than 100mm to ensure the integrity of your home’s foundation.


The Bricks

Another important structural aspect to consider is the bricks used by the home builder. There are two types of clay internal bricks: vertically cored and horizontally cored. At Persona Homes, we always use vertically cored bricks which have a compressive strength of 12Mpa, compared to horizontally cored bricks which only have an Mpa of 3.50. That’s just one of the many ways that we’re committed to quality building.


The Builder's Credentials

If you’re on the hunt to find a builder, it’s crucial to consider their credentials. A large number of registered builders are ex-trades people, such as brick layers or roof carpenters. However, a builder that is qualified as a civil or structural engineer can offer a higher level of technical service and attention to detail when it’s time to build.


The Builder's Reputation

Before signing with a builder, you must first be satisfied with their reputation. If the builder won’t let you speak to existing or past clients, and/or they’ve appeared at the Building Commission, these are potential red flags.

Almost 98% of Persona Home’s business is generated from referrals and word of mouth recommendations. Because of this, we know that all of our procedures are successful and that our team are providing the highest level of service.


The Tradies

Always do your research on the tradespeople employed by the builder, as they’re the ones most knowledgeable about the standards the builder sets and their demands. Ask the builder for a contact list of their long-term tradies so that you can ask them questions or voice any concerns.


Site Supervision

Unlike other custom builders, we don’t load our site supervisors with an unmanageable number of projects. This ensures all site supervisors have adequate time to give every home the attention it requires, including attentively monitoring all trades, people and subcontractors.

Thank you for a great home

Your custom matters to them

For speed, I would give Persona Homes, Perth Custom Builders 5 out of 5. Typically, speed depends on the building supervisor, and Persona had good control of their building supervisor.

I would strongly recommend them

I was given time to consider things such as colour schemes, light fittings and so on, This was a relief and I think it led to better decisions.

Kee Loo

Two Storey Home Owner

Persona attended to things promptly

Kenneth and Yovi carried out a pre-handover inspection, and they went through everything with a fine-toothed comb. They were incredibly thorough and I really appreciated this.

Yos Thamrin

Project Manager

Building is a very detailed process

In short, I would say Persona Homes, Perth Custom Builder is large enough to build high quality, yet small enough to provide personal service – and at a genuinely fair price.

On time and on budget

I had easy access to the site supervisor, the General Manager and the two owners of the company and they were always willing to listen and help. I am happy to recommend them to anyone looking to build.

I was right. I love my new home.

After speaking with several high volume builders who just wouldn’t listen, a friend recommended Persona. Immediately after my first meeting with them, I felt comfortable and knew I could trust them to design and build my home.
