Checklist for Building a New Home

blueprints and other contracting tools from a Checklist for Building a New Home

If there is one thing all homeowners will swear by it is that building a new home is no small task. After all, this is somewhere you’ll be spending a significant portion of your years. You simply can’t take any chances. It needs to be not just clean but have that modern edge that realtors and potential customers would find appealing to should you ever choose to sell it.

But with everything to consider, this can be a bit more than an average individual can deal with. And this is where professional contractors come in. Your typical contractor should be able to take you through the process, secure all the permits and oversee the job to the end.

What Kind of Contractors Do You Need?

Mainly, you will need the following contractors:

  • Construction team for foundation
  • Roofers
  • Door installers
  • Drywall installers
  • Painters
  • Appliance installers
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Floor installers

However, as you may already know, not all contractors are the same. There are a few key things you should consider in one to get the best out of the experience. Let’s take a look.

Check their qualifications

First and foremost, the person you are trusting with building your dream home must have a reasonable track record, or at least an online reputation as a show for work already done. On top of that, they should have an established financial and distribution system, since they’ll likely be dealing with suppliers and bankers on your behalf. In this case, there are a few things you can confirm in your background check. Ensure that they:

  • Have all the required permits and licenses as applicable to your state or city
  • Have positive reviews and samples of previous work done
  • Have workers compensation and other insurance on their personnel
  • Have relevant experience in the field.
  • Have references to back them up
  • Provide a reasonable timeline for completing the project

Luckily, a simple internet search should be enough to confirm most of these. And by so doing, you’ll be safe from penalties due to licensing requirements. Also important is to ensure that you are cleared to build your house in your intended location.

Jack of All Trades

While certified contractors claim to have an all-around experience in all construction matters, most of them usually have an area of expertise where they’ve specialized in such as painting or roofing houses. If you decide to hire a single contractor to perform the entire project from start to finish, be sure that the contractor you hire can handle all the primary services.
