Free Tickets to Build and Renovating Expo 2013 in Melbourne

Build and Renovating Expo

If you’re building or renovating, you can’t afford to miss the Build & Renovating Expo!

Win your tickets – read below how you and your partner can visit the Expo absolutely free ($40 value).

Australia’s leading Build & Renovation Expo is back, after a little renovation of its own. Running in partnership with the Master Builders Association of Victoria for eight years, the Building & Home Improvement Expo has undergone its own renovation. More than just a name change, the Build & Renovating Expo reflects a shift in focus and puts the visitor in the spotlight. Last year’s feedback from the serious builder and renovator was listened to – and this year’s B&RE was designed accordingly.

The Build & Renovating Expo is a one stop shop showcasing a handpicked line-up of over 250 industry leaders specialising in innovative building materials and products. Free industry seminars and the `Ask an Expert’ feature will continue as key highlights and, to keep the little ones entertained, the family activity area by The Lighthouse Foundation is not to be missed.

Dreaming about building your own house, perhaps like the one pictured below? Build and Renovating Expo is the right place for you to get expert advice on building, design ideas, and more.

Beautiful home

As well as including some of Australia’s most recognised brands, the Build & Renovating Expo is a major launching pad for many new products and services that are entering the market. Visitors are spoilt for choice in the areas of bathrooms, kitchens, flooring, lighting, heating/cooling, doors & windows, energy efficiency & solar products, roofing, fencing & gates, building materials, outdoor living, pools & spas, finance and sustainability solutions and more.

Which is the better ‘Standard Building Contract for a new house, HIA or Master Builders?

I’m really interested in learning about how I can renovate my kitchen (which is a very retro pink…fine by me, but I reckon down the track it could well affect the resale value!) on a budget. A small-ish budget. 😉 Things like where to spend and where to save, that kind of thing. 🙂

I tried to get my bathroom and laundry renovated so I contacted different plumbers, cabinet makers, tilers, painters etc to compare quotes. All the them offered to project manage the whole renovation process because they have their own network of tradies and they know the step-by-step of the whole process. Should I trust their expertise and let them project manage the whole thing using their contacts, or should I insist in getting different tradies in myself, and let them work among themselves?

We own a block of land that we are looking to build on in the coming year. We have a major interest in making our house as energy efficient as possible and have heard about Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) being used in the US. Is this a viable and realistic option for building a house in Australia and if so, are there any Australian suppliers we can talk to?

Is it better to renovate room by room or subject by subject ie do all the painting and then do all the floors etc. We have just bought a house and I am scared that we are going to jump in and do things in the wrong order.

When is it ok to use a Draftsman compared to using a Architecture for planning a renovation to an existing house?

What are my options for cost effective and low maintenance exterior cladding for a modern extension on a californian bungalow?


Vicki July 3, 2013 at 12:03 pm

We have purchased a block of land around two years ago and are now looking at building. Only issue is that it has a sideways slope from left to right and no builder wants to touch it. We have gone to the volume builders and they just laughed in our face. We have asked a few private builders and we were told that the cost to build would be doubled. I thought the build was the easy part of building and the decision to choose colours/kitchens/landscapying …etc would be the hard part.

which one is better cement sheet or timber for external cladding??


Emily July 9, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Hi, We have a downward sloping block, about 6m drop. What you you recommend would be better, spilt level and building with the slope or excavate & build a double storey?
Thanks 🙂

We are planning to out in bifolds or stacking sliding doors, a new timber kitchen and an outdoor pizza oven. I want to know where I can get the best deals and who can knock out a wall and put up a wall as part of the kitchen work to have it all done at the same time.

How can make my new house look like a million bucks for 50k?


Bruce July 12, 2013 at 3:55 pm

What is the most common sence sequence of events for renovating a kitchen?


Dale Hutchins July 13, 2013 at 2:57 pm

Hi, we are renovating a 70’s home and have slate throughout, we have jack hammered the kitchen dining and was the hardest job of all. We still need to remove some from the bathroom, laundry and toilet, too hard, not sure what is the best method. Need advice how to remove or recover with something else.

Does dropping a bath to floor level add value to a bathroom renovation?
