How to find a good builder

February 15th, 2016 · No Comments · building services

Getting the right builder for your property is among the most crucial decisions that you will have to make in the entire building project. The expertise and professionalism of the builder plays a major role in the outcome, so you have to be very careful while choosing who to hire. You can hasten the process of research and selection, thanks to some proven ways that summarize the entire process. The proven ways are given in the ten steps below.
1. Definition of needs
Your needs may vary depending on what exactly you need to build. Some builders specialize in specific types of homes while others may deal with a wide range of construction types. The type of materials to be used might also shed some light as other builders specialize in handling certain types of materials.
2. Experience
The number of constructions that a building firm has been involved with, as well as the number of years they have been in operation can be a good measure of skill and experience level. The more the experience, the higher the quality you are likely to get.
3. Satisfaction of past buyers
During the research process, go an extra mile to get references and referrals from the builder and find out whether their previous customers were happy with the results. They should be really happy and eager to recommend them to you if their job was good.
4. Licensing and insurance
This is of particular importance, just in case anything goes wrong. You need to make sure that you are dealing with a builder who is licensed and insured, with their insurance covering you as well, just to be on the safe side.
5. Warranty
A major advantage of constructing new property is the fact that the home and nearly everything in it is new and fall under a warranty. Ensure that the builders offer a structural warranty that lasts a satisfactory amount of time to you.
6. Resale value
Some homes depreciate in value over time, mostly due to poor workmanship. On the other side, others will maintain or even appreciate in value over time. The builders of such have great reputation and can easily be found.
7. Involvement in the industry
Good builders will join associations such as the Local Home Builder Association, showing the confidence and commitment of the builder to his job and the community. Such associations are a good place to start looking.
