Your home may be the one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, so finding a new home builder who is experienced in the work you require is vital.

We’ve put together our top tips to finding the right new home builder for you. Renovating and building is often a large job, but it can run smoothly and professionally if you find the right builder!
Clearly define your needs
What style home are you building? What is your budget? What size home are you building? You need to ask yourself all of these questions and make a clear brief of exactly what you need and want. Some builders may specialize in certain types of home and use particular materials that you would like to use.
Create a list of potential builders
Once you have a clear plan of what you want, you can then begin to create a list of potential builders for your project. Ask around for recommendations, read reviews online and speak to different builders to find out if they are capable of carrying out the project. You can even ask to see examples of builders work to get an idea of what they have worked on in the past.
Find out different quotes from different builders and what they include. It’s best to receive a detailed breakdown before you begin any work, so you can budget and not be stuck with unexpected costs once the build has started.
Question your builder
When you have found a suitable builder who meets your needs, you then need to ask them questions to ensure they are the right builder for you. Take a look at our post listing some of the important questions you should ask a custom home builder.
