Finding the Right Builder

The first piece of advice I would give is to research the potential Builder's you wish to quote on your home.

In my opinion, testimonials are the most important resource you have to select your Builder.  It takes 5-8 months to build a new home. There are dozens of people involved, working for many different trades and suppliers. Your Builder has to control all of these people and personalities and make sure your expectations have been exceeded. If a Builders past clients have spent many months working thru all of this and they can still enthusiastically recommend the Builder they used, that Builder is the one for you!

Of course, these types of Builders already have a system in place to make sure the end result exceeds client expectations and that is sure to be reflected in a great testimonial.
