Your topmost aim is getting the right team when hiring a custom home builder for your dream home. There have been instances when projects are not finished to standard or not completed at all. For this reason, do your homework and ask the right questions. Consider asking the following questions when hiring a home builder.
Have you built any home before?
Your contractor should offer you his resume by providing a list of jobs he has done in the past. This information will help you rate the quality of his completed projects with a feeling of customer satisfaction or dissatisfaction. If satisfied, it will help you build confidence in the company and projects finished. Also, you may have a project similar to the ones they have completed.
What type of timbers do you prefer to use?
A professional home builder will have crucial reasons for choosing the materials he uses and must be able to defend them. This will provide you with a sense of relief concerning the construction of your home and his trade’s practical knowledge.
Are you a licensed builder and are you in any home builders’ association?
Most builders’ answer to this question is a YES! However, a few things will reveal if he’s licensed or in any local association. Things like expertise, experience and if customers are satisfied. A good home builder will be proud to be in an association to display his credentials and advertise his profession too.
What are your terms of payment?
It’s essential to know there won’t be any hidden charges and when the builder expects payment. The amount you will be paying at the beginning, middle and end of the project.
