Questions to ask builder for new home

Embarking on your new home building journey can be overwhelming and stressful at times – you want to make sure you find the best builder for your dream home. We’re here to get it right the first time with two generations of experience, to ensure that you have a smooth and successful home building journey. So, we’ve created a list of the most important and frequently asked questions to ask your builder.

1. Are you a licensed builder?

This should be the very first thing you ask the builder. Building a home is a costly and time consuming project, that should be done right the first time. Choosing a licensed and professional builder will undoubtedly be more expensive than unlicensed, in more ways than one. The professional builder of your choice needs to be trusted, to minimise risk and mistakes.

2. Are you financially secure?

Building a new home is a significant investment. It may be one of the biggest investments you make in your life! This means that you’re placing a lot of faith and trust in your builder. The worst thing that can happen during your home building process, would be if your builder suddenly declared bankruptcy half way through the build. Check the builder’s financial status and credibility to ensure that they’re financially stable and that all your hard-earned money doesn’t go to waste.

3. How will your builder ensure a quality build of your home?

Your dream home should be built by the best and most experienced builders and not by one who causes anxiety and stress during the build process. Go with a builder that ensures only the best quality, has a process to build your new home and one that always sets high standards by having an on site manager while they build.

4. How will I be kept informed throughout the building process?

You should expect continuous updates and reports from your builder at every stage of your home building journey – choose a builder that keeps you informed of each stage of the build. Your builder should be 100% transparent and communicative during the entire process.

5. When can you start and how long will it take?

You need to know when construction will start on your home and when completion is expected, so you can move in. This will help you plan where to live and how to spread out your finances in the meantime. However, it’s important to note that the dates presented to you are a rough estimate, as factors outside of the builder’s control – such as weather, can cause delays during the building process.

6. How long does the warranty period last?

Another important sign to look out for in a good builder is the warranty period that they offer. If it’s a year or more, you can be sure that the home builder is confident in their work and that they will guarantee it will hold up to your standards, well after the completion of the build with no further call outs to fix problems overlooked.
