How do I select a custom home builder?
Reputation, reputation, reputation. The reputation of your custom home builder is the most important consideration when selecting the contractor to complete your project. Gather referrals and testimonials from past clients. Ask past clients questions such as: Would you use Ivan Stanley Fine Home Builders to build another custom home? Would you refer Jeremy Fischer, Ivan Stanley to friends or family?
Other considerations include experience and longevity in the region. Does the home builder have considerable experience in the area? Does the custom home contractor have knowledge of construction rules and regulations specific to your jurisdiction? Does the home builder understand how to build with respect to weather conditions or other challenges particular to the region?
