Last week, we covered the first four questions you should ask your custom home builder. Embarking on a custom home project is an exciting and challenging time, but with the right building company, you can proceed with a team of experienced individuals who can help your dream come to fruition.
5. Do Your Homes Have Warranties?
No custom home building company can ensure that nothing will go wrong. This is why you should ask what warranties they offer for the new home during and after construction. In the case that something goes wrong mid the process, the company should be able to cover the expenses in some way. It should also have a warranty covering specific mishaps that might occur post-construction.
6. How Have You Handled Setbacks?
Do not go into a project with a custom home builder until you understand how they react to setbacks in the process. Ask the builder yourself to know their building project history. Since you are in a team with your custom home builder, it is essential to have a building partner who can work through any challenge and come out resilient on the other end.
7. Can I Have a Few References?
Likewise, ask if you could have a few references from clients who have worked with this building company on their current custom homes. Your custom home builder should be glad to offer you a few clients to give you feedback on the company’s performance and their custom home. The more voices confirming the performance of a custom home builder, the surer you can be about how well your own home will turn out. Even among equally reputable custom home builders, you can see the different styles and methods of each, and choose which works better with you.
8. Can You Work Within My Budget?
One of the most fundamental questions to ask is one concerning your budget. With the given budget, what can your custom home builder do with it? Can the custom home company build you the home of your dreams, or at least cover all your wants and needs? If you have the means, and the builder has the way, you and your builder can go full steam ahead.
