Not everyone wants to practice their renovation skills to qualify for the next season of The Block, and we’ve all heard renovation horror stories.
When you buy an established home, you don’t always know what you’re in for. The hot water system might be about to burst, the oven might be a bit dodgy, or the roof might leak. A variety of issues might be lurking under the surface that you missed during inspection. You’ll reduce these risks when you buy a new home because… all your inclusions are new.
Better yet, if there are any issues with your brand-new home, you’ll benefit from Metricon’s Lifetime Structural Guarantee and other warranties included with your new home. However, you shouldn’t worry, as your new Metricon home will be built to the highest standard and include quality fixtures, fittings and appliances.
