What do building services include?

Most builders are experienced in working with a range of different project types, tools, and materials, although some specialise in delivering a particular type of building service or skill. Some of the most common building services include:

New builds & renovations

Whether you’re planning a new extension or a renovation in an existing space, you’ll need a professional builder to draft up the plans and implement them. Drafting involves drawing objects and plans to scale with details to help guide the building or construction project. Some of the most popular types of renovation and installation projects include kitchen installations, bathroom renovations, and home extensions. If you need demolition, your builder can help organise and oversee the process before you start your build or renovation. Your building contractor will refer to the plans for ordering, measuring, and installing all the materials, and work with other contractors as needed to expertly build and finish the project.

Sheds & outdoor living

Want to improve your outdoor living areas or add extra storage space with a shed? Builders can help with outdoor projects like shed installation, gazebo installation, and even plunge pools. They can also help with installing patios or pergolas. Your building contractor can help with the entire process, from choosing the design and ordering the materials, to concreting and installing the foundations and structure. Finally, they can do the finishing touches, like rendering or shelving. Experienced builders will also check details like local rules and regulations to ensure your structure is compliant.


Need your driveway concreted? Your building contractor can help lay concrete for a new driveway, seal your driveway, or repair an existing driveway surface. They’ll recommend the best driveway materials so you get the design and function you want, before ordering the materials needed. They’ll prep the surface, excavating to ensure it’s level, compacting the ground, then reinforcing the edges with timber. They’ll use a concrete mixer, wheelbarrow, shovel, and trowel to mix and spread concrete, smoothing the surface as they go. To seal the concrete, your building contractor will need to wait a couple of weeks for it to fully cure, before spraying, rolling, or brushing the sealant onto the clean surface.

Fix sheeting to new garage


Evatt ACT, Australia

6th Jan 2021

I have a new steel frame shed due to be built in Feb 2021 by a recognised shed company. To match the rendering of the existing house, I would like the garage walls to be sheeted, as opposed to colourbond, so they may be rendered. Sheeting can be blue board, EasyLap or similar material. Happy to take advice. Final dates of the build are TBA and it's likely the sheeting will need to go on at a certain time during the construction of the garage. This can be negotiated though to a suitable time. Will need all materials supplied and is for the sheeting only, rendering not required for this part of the build. Expected price quoted is a rough guide. Dimensions can be supplied to those interested in the job.
