Things to Ask a Custom Home Builder

Building a custom home isn’t just a project. It’s a commitment that needs to be done correctly. The quality of your builder matters, as does your ability to communicate with them. Before you hire a custom home builder, here are a few things you should prepare to ask them about.

Their Experience

It’s best to have a builder with years of experience and a good track record to show off. 

You can ask them questions like:

  • How long have you been doing this?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • What licenses do you have?

 Ideally, your builder should be able to give answers that help you trust their competence. 

You may also want to ask about any current projects they have, their challenges, and what specific types of homes they specialize in.

Your Project’s Details

If you don’t have a good understanding of your project’s budgets, limits, and options, then being able to build yourself a house will be easier said than done. So, you should consider asking questions about your home’s warranty (and if it’ll have one), how quickly the project will be finished, and if you’re allowed to use your own set of plans.

Anything Else

There may be other concerns you have before the building begins. You should voice those questions as soon as possible, even if they don’t seem important immediately. 

For example, if you’re concerned about the environment, you may want to know if the house has any energy-saving features.

Understanding the neighborhood is also important. If you’re concerned about moving into a new community, your builder can help you prepare.
