If you’re looking for a quality home builder for your new home, remodel, or addition, you may be wondering where to start. And if you’re like most people, your search will begin online. Here’s what to look for making the important decision of choosing an established, reputable builder to work with.
Research, Reviews & References
Before you meet with your builder, try to preview their work and read testimonials. Confirm their license number, which should be displayed prominently on their website and marketing materials, and look for any specialty certifications that are important to you. Don’t hesitate to request a list of references, either. Established builders will be happy to provide you with this information.
Questions & Communication
When contacting your candidates, look for a builder who is communicative, transparent, and clear. At IHS, we’re more than happy to address any concerns and answer any questions you might have. From the initial phone call to the consultation, clear communication is key. If you have preferences related to materials and design, be sure you make those known early on.
