Are you finally ready to take the leap and build the custom home of your dreams? Taking the leap from renting or previously owned homes is exciting, but can understandably feel a little overwhelming for owners. Choosing the right home builder will give you the confidence you need to navigate through every step of the construction process, from home design to construction and finally taking possession. At Abbey Platinum Master Built, we know just how important it is to trust your home builder, and how much of a difference it can make when building your dream home. If you’re considering a custom build for your next home and are in the process, below are some of the key aspects you’ll want to keep in mind when selecting your home builder.
Experience and Portfolio
It comes as no surprise that experience is one of the biggest factors to consider when contemplating what home contractor to partner with. There’s no shortage of home builders in the Central Alberta Region, but the reality is, not everyone will have the experience you need for a safe and flawless home build. The right fit will not only have multiple examples of previous homes that align with your vision, but will be more than willing to show you how they can help make your dream a reality. Don’t be afraid to ask builders about any particularly challenging projects they may have undertaken as well as how they overcame difficulties, along with a thorough overview of their qualifications and more.
Quality and Transparency
Your home should be a solid structure, designed to stand the test of time and offer the whole family safety and comfort for many years to come. When searching for a home builder, it’s important to focus on the quality of their work and to let their existing show homes and layouts speak for themselves. Experienced and quality-focused builders will be concerned with providing quality results by using the right materials and having a proven process in place, both of which play a big role in guiding construction. When interviewing prospective builders, ask for information regarding how they handle projects and manage expectations, as well as how they facilitate communication between all involved parties. At Abbey Platinum Master Built, for example, we know that breakdowns in communication are one of the most common sources of delays and frustration, and that’s why we strive to make sure that everyone is always on the same page, all project long.
What’s Their Reputation?
Finally, while you always want to make sure you’re the one making the final decision when choosing your builder, it’s important to consider community reputation and check in with your network to get word-of-mouth reviews and advice. Friends and family are often a wonderful source of wisdom, and can be a great resource when it comes to learning what local builders are trusted.
Outside of your direct contacts, do some digging online and focus on builders that have a long history of industry-relevant awards that speak to exceptional practices where customer service, building, and process are concerned. Don’t forget to also take a look to see how involved in their community they are; after all, those who live where they build are far more likely to walk the walk rather than just talk!
