Termite proof

Steel frames are termite proof, ensuring your home is built for life. Dealing with termites can cost thousands and require chemical treatment. You can prevent the pests from ever becoming a problem by making your home termite resistant with steel frames.

Attention to detail and high quality

The only way to build a high quality home is to have scrupulous attention to detail. We care about the little things and ensure all the finishing touches are perfect. Second best is never good enough for us.

Hands-on approach

Our supervisors are on site every day, ensuring your build is going to plan. We don’t delegate critical work, ensuring only the best standards are achieved by our hands-on team. Our meticulous supervision ensures excellent quality control. It’s the only way to build a quality home; that’s our philosophy.

The quality of the build was a real standout for Fortitude Homes. From the ducting of the Rangehood to the silicon of all junctions really showed they care about the little things. Highly recommend.

Fortitude Homes’ use of steel frames was a standout for us. The 20 structural guarantee and knowing that the frame is termite proof is a great advantage for our investment property.
