Contracting the right builder is a critical first step in the construction process of your dream home.
Some homeowners liken it to hiring an employee — while others compare the experience to a marriage – you have to spend a lot of time together, make a lot of big decisions and ultimately trust each other to build something that lasts.
“This is the biggest purchase you make – period,” new homeowner Amy Greene says.
Don Ghiz also has recent experience in hiring a contractor. He is in the middle of a construction project and said he spoke to several candidates before making his selection.
Before picking a contractor, Ghiz evaluated a number of builders based on their level of experience, competency, style of house they were comfortable building, method of accounting, communication skills and willingness to stay positive.
