By: Helene Johansen, SSKB Marketing & PR Assistant

Every strata community requires regular maintenance and regardless if the money is taken from the sinking fund or the admin fund, it is in the best interest of your community to secure a reasonable price.

Often it is crucial to find a contractor that specialises in large strata projects in order to get good value for what you are paying. But, where do you find contractors that specifically specialise in strata?

  1. Check reviews at Living In Strata and gather quotes from several different contractors
  2. Invite the contractor(s) to come along to a committee meeting to explain their quotation and answer any questions to ensure you get value for your money
  3. Provide contractors with a scope of work to cut a deal.

Watch out

Be smart though, if one contractor comes back with a quote which is very different from all the others a red flag should go up. Why are they so much cheaper or extremely expensive? Don’t waste your time by inviting these contractors to your committee meeting!
