Hiring a contractor

To find a building contractor (i.e. a builder) refer to the Yellow Pages (under building contractors).

We recommend you get written quotes from at least 3 builders before deciding which builder to hire. You should get independent legal and financial advice before signing any contract that involves a large investment of time or money.

For more information, visit the Queensland Building and Construction Commission website.
