  • The average blowout was more than $6000 in WA. Twice the national average.
  • Projects often took up to 95 per cent longer than expected.
  • 81 per cent of homeowners stayed at home while renovations were being carried out.
  • Plumbing was the most common area for a project to go over budget and over deadline.
