Building a new home requires that you find the right home plan and the right team to build the home.
That team will be led by a general contractor. Taking time to plan when hiring a general contractor will help ensure you get a good fit. Here are some hiring-a-contractor tips that will guide you in finding the right one.
1. Start With References
Asking for recommendations will help you start the search, but look for recommendations from people who have worked with a contractor. Has someone you know recently built a home or done a major remodeling project? Talk to this person about his or her experience. If he or she had a positive experience with a contractor, add that contractor to your list of people to call. Starting with vetted professionals endorsed by those you trust should cut your research time significantly.
