We at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. want to help you create the ideal home for you and your family. To make their dream home a reality, many people choose to renovate their existing property, while others choose to start fresh by building an entirely new home. If you are leaning toward the second option, you’ll want to work with qualified new home builders. Having experts on hand to answer questions, work on designs, and help navigate decisions will help you make your new home the best it can be. To help you find the best team for the job, we at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. have put together this guide on what to look for in new home builders.
- Licensing and Insurance- When interviewing potential candidates, your first question should be about their licensing and insurance. You need to make sure that your new home builders are qualified to perform the work that you need, and you need to know that they carry the right insurance coverage to protect you if something goes wrong in the course of the work. Any legitimate contractor will provide these without hesitation; if they seem cagey about it you should take your business elsewhere.
- Solid Portfolio- Once you establish their credentials, the next question you ask potential new home builders is to see their portfolio. Go over their past work to get a sense of whether they would be a good fit for your project—have they done projects of similar scope? Do they have experience with your desired style? A portfolio is another thing that legitimate contractors should be happy to provide, but you can also supplement your research with online reviews and client testimonials.
- Open Communication- As we alluded to in the previous two sections, another key quality for new home builders is open, honest communication. You will be working with your contractor for an extended period of time and will be entrusting them with many details and decisions for your new home. You need to be able to trust that they will keep you in the loop about construction progress and possible setbacks. See how they follow up your initial consultation—if you’re not satisfied with their communication style now, it’s not likely to get better, and you should probably move on.
If you are in search of reliable new home builders, you can always turn to our team at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc. We’ll help you bring your vision into reality.
