Questions to Ask Your Home Builder

If you have decided to build a custom home, then it is natural to feel overwhelmed about the sheer size of the project. One way to start feeling more in control, is to make a list of questions to review with your builder. During the entire building process, you will have many different conversations with your builder during which new questions are sure to come to up, however, these questions will help you get started, so you can get a handle on what to expect at the outset while your luxury, custom home is constructed.

How much of the floor plan can be customized?

Some custom home builders have set floor plans from which you can choose, while others allow full customization from the ground up. Even when there are a set of floor plans you are choosing from, there is likely to be some wiggle room for customization. Ask your builder how much room there is for customizing or adding certain features you may want. For example, if your floor plan doesn’t include a deck but you want one, find out from your builder if that is possible.

What is your warranty program?

You should always ask your home builder about the warranty he or she offers. A good warranty will protect your investment and ensure that you can get the fixes you need without additional cost to you if the work is not done correctly. Good builders offer good warranty programs, so be sure you ask about builders’ program in detail.

How long will the building take?

This question naturally has major significance. Often, the timeline for building projects can’t be given precisely, but your builder should be able to provide you with a reasonable estimate of what to expect at each stage of the building process, so you can plan accordingly.
