Choosing a builder who can bring your vision to life is one of the most important considerations of the pre-building phase. Here’s how to choose the very best.
A builder who understands your vision and what you’re trying to achieve, while taking into account your family’s needs, is key to minimising the stress of the build process.
When choosing your builder, try to find a company who specialises in providing your highest priority needs. For example, your biggest consideration may be your budget, or it may be that you’re looking to get your build done as quickly as possible.
Perhaps your main concern is getting the latest high-end fixtures and fittings, or you may be more concerned with having a stress-free build where everything is taken care of for you. If you’re like many other Territorians, you might be looking for a home with the strongest structural build, to protect you from all kinds of Territory weather.
Different building companies specialise in different things. Work out what matters to you in your builder and find the right builder to match your values. Don’t be afraid to ring around and ask questions of different companies to make sure the one you settle on is a value fit.
When choosing a builder, things to look for include:
- Do they offer an on-time build guarantee?
- Do they offer an extended warranty on build or fittings?
- Do they have any negative reviews on Google (or other review sites?)
- Do they have any customer testimonials on their site?
- Are they a registered builder (check here: http://www.ntlis.nt.gov.au/building-practitioners/)
- Can they show you through any project homes?
