As Calgary's population continues to grow, so does the demand for quality custom home builders. This can be both good and bad for homeowners because it presents them with more choices than ever before. On one hand, having more choices means that you're able to find a company that best matches your needs. On the other hand, when finding a custom home builder has already proven difficult, who needs even more choices?!
Custom Homes has compiled a list of questions to ask prospective home builders in Calgary. If you’re stuck and don't know what to do with all the choices that you have, keep these questions in mind next time you talk with your home builder:
Before you hire a contractor, find out about his or her qualifications and experience. Good contractors will be proud to tell you about their training, certifications, and previous work.
When selecting a builder, consider their experience. Builders with long histories in the industry are generally more reliable than those without much experience. Ask to see examples of the company's work if no portfolio is available on its website.
Do you build production or custom homes? Ideally, you would know the answer to this question before meeting the builders face to face, but it’s always a good thing to double-check that you are both on the same track. If they build custom homes in Calgary, what do they specialize in?
