    Adam Hobill : Design added this to 13 Hidden Costs Often Missing From Builders' Quotes23 September 2015

    6. InsulationYour drawings should clearly nominate the insulation requirements for the property, and the designer has probably spent some time considering the best insulation for your particular project. If they have specified insulation over and above what’s required to meet minimum standards, you should ensure that the builder is following suit, with the allowance they’ve made in the quote. For example, the plans may nominate R5 ceiling insulation even though the minimum requirement for your climate zone is only R3.5. But some larger-volume builders will be so conditioned to only including the standard R3.5 insulation that they may only make an allowance for that in the quote. It is important to remember that the plans form an important piece of your contractual documentation, so if the drawings nominate R5 insulation then that’s what should be quoted for. It’s also likely that the insulation specified on the drawings is required to meet energy efficiency and thermal comfort requirements, so accepting a downgrade in insulation may also cause difficulties in final approvals, if the house no longer meets requirements.
