Focus on Quality First
When you have a custom home built, it’s not a temporary residence. This is where you are going to live, with your family, for the foreseeable future. As a result, the experience the builder has actually matters when it comes to a custom home.
The last thing you want to have to worry about is neverending repairs, especially repairs that are critical to the structural systems. These are often the most expensive repairs and upgrades down the road.
When hiring a builder, the first thing you should consider is the quality of their work. Be sure to check the builder’s references and ask them about the materials and building process they plan to use.
The team at Delano Construction has years of experience in planning and permitting any construction project. They can even offer help with excavation, if needed, making this a great team to handle your build.
Make a List of Quality Tacoma Builders
Once you know what quality builders are in your local area, make a list of the potential ones you want to work with. A great way to get to know more about each option on your list is by contacting the local home builders’ association.
Another resource to use is local real estate agents. They can likely recommend builders they have worked with in the past, or who have a good reputation in the industry.
Keep in mind, “the proof is in the pudding” applies here too. It’s important to see the results of the builder you are considering using. Delano Construction provides before and after images of projects they have done and will gladly offer references for customers interested in their services.
Transparency Is a Must
A quality builder is going to be completely transparent and happy to answer any question you may ask them. They will also provide you with a detailed timeline, as well as a comprehensive estimate in a prompt manner. At Delano Construction, you can even get a no-obligation, free estimate for the work you need done.
The builder should also disclose their building philosophy, the products they use, and the relationships they have with various contractors. Make sure you avoid any builder who can’t answer these questions in a clear and concise manner.
