Building A New Home – Selecting A Builder



While there are no guarantees, here are some things to consider


when selecting a builder for your new home:


Referrals from family, friends and co-workers can be a good source


but find out if they get a referral fee. Usually, someone you know


would not refer a builder unless they had a good experience.


Check the builder’s background. Is there a permanent business


location? How long have they been in business under their current


name? Do they have adequate insurance and are all workers –


including sub-contractors – covered by workers compensation?


Are they members of the local builder’s association? Are they


certified by the State? How much experience do they have with


homes similar to yours?


Visit at least one job site in progress. Is the site organized? Are building


materials properly stacked and properly covered to prevent weather


damage prior to installation? Does the quality of materials and


workmanship meet your expectations?


Check references. Get a list of recent projects that you can visit or


call the current owners. Ask questions about timeliness in completing


the work, the quality of the work, response time when follow up calls


were needed and would they hire them again. Find out the suppliers


and banks they use and call for a credit reference. Finally, check with


the Consumer Protection Agency. If there have been complaints,


how were they resolved? These simple steps can prevent big headaches.
