Choosing the Right builder will Bring your new home to life!
Questions you should ask a builder to help determine his skills, experience and professionalism.
Are you a full time builder? How many years have you been in business? How many homes have you built? How many homes do you build in a year?
Will you manage the process to obtain all necessary permits, deal with conservation authorities, register my building and all other paperwork requirements for my project?
Do you have experience building waterfront homes?
Do you build only from home plans you supply? Or can I provide my own set of plans?
Are you licensed and insured? Do you offer a Tarion Warranty?
How and when will the final price for my home be determined?
How do you compare yourself to other builders? What are the most important benefits of the homes you build? What are the major energy-saving features of homes you build?
Is your company familiar with new trends in housing, such as CMHC Healthy Housing™ and FlexHousing™?
Can you give me references from prior home buyers? Can you help me make an appointment to see a waterfront home(s) you built for another customer(s)?
Will you directly manage all of the trades people on the site?
Do you have an established network of sub-trades who work with the company on all or most of your homes? Who are they?
Who will be my day-to-day contact on my building site?
How and when can I make changes or upgrades before and during construction?
How often (and when) will I have access to the home during the building process?
How long will my home take to complete?
