Questions to ask a custom home builder

ING_32193_58852.jpg

Once you have selected a custom home builder, there are some questions you should ask to ensure they are the right builder for the job. When you have luxury home plans made, you want to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible and your custom builder is trustworthy and capable. 

There are a number of questions you can ask your custom home builder so you feel confident and certain about the work they are going to complete. Here are some questions we recommend you ask: 

Can I have a detailed quote? 

The last thing you want is to be surprised with unexpected costs. Ask your custom home builder for a detailed breakdown so you can keep a track of costs and budget throughout your project. 

What is included and what’s not? 

This question ties in with your detailed quote. You need to establish what is included in the quote throughout the work and what extras are not. 

What insurance do you have? 

Reputable builders should have insurance to cover you if anything goes wrong during the work. They should be able to provide proof and details of their policy so you can be confident you are protected if the worse was to happen. 

Are you a member of a trade association? 

Find out if your builder is a member of a trade association and call the association to double check. This will give you peace of mind that your builder works in the correct conditions and to certain standards. 

Can I have a contract? 

A verbal contract before starting building work is not ideal. A signed contract can set out terms and conditions as well as quotes and responsibilities. Contracts protect not only you but the builder too. 

Do you use contractors? 

Find out if your builder uses other contractors and how often a site manager will visit your project to ensure everything is running smoothly. 

These are some questions you may want to ask your custom home builder alongside anything else about how they work, schedules, materials etc. It’s important to feel comfortable with your builder, so you can approach them at any time with questions, queries or concerns.
