Custom Home Builders and Home Additions

 

Considering that purchasing a home is probably the largest purchase most people will make in their lives, finding a reputable company to build your custom home or to do any remodeling of your home should also be a decision that is taken seriously. There are no doubt many construction companies in your area that will offer to do construction on your home. The key is to find a reputable construction company that will do quality work on your beloved home. Here are some things that you should look for:

Licensing and Certification: A reputable home building company will be fully licensed and certified within the state that they operate. If the company has a website (which they should), there should be a section where their credentials are listed. If not, call and ask them to give you this information. These credentials should have a unique number, and it may be a good idea to look up these credentials to make sure they are current and legitimate.
Photo Gallery of Previous Projects: On the company’s website, they should offer a photo gallery showing before and after photos of their previous work. Look for the types of homes and additions they have previously worked on and compare these project with the work you are hiring them to do on your home.
Customer Reviews: Good customer reviews are a must for any business, especially one that you are hiring to work on your home. Look for a large sampling of reviews, and as with the photo gallery, look for reviews that deal with project that are similar to what you are hoping to have done with your home.
Green Construction: These days, the importance of having an environmentally friendly construction company has come to the forefront. The amount of waste generated from a home construction job can build up quickly and have a larger negative impact on the environment than is necessary. Also, the materials and equipment used in your home construction project may or may not be environmentally friendly. within their licensing and certification portfolio, look for one of these green building certifications, such as membership with the Master Builders Association Built Green Program certification. Companies with this certification use green building practices and install only high-efficiency materials that are better for the environment and may save you in energy costs over the long run.

Keeping these things in mind, you should be off to a good start in the process of selecting a high quality, highly reputable home building company.
