This may seem a strange question, but in the majority of cases your builder will only set foot on your property once. Why is that? What can you do to check if this is how your builder operates?
In all the larger building companies, the responsibility of oversight of your home is delegated to a site supervisor, who will co-ordinate and provide quality inspections for your home.
Now while most astute owners will perform a license check for the builder they want to build their home, have you ever thought about the Site Supervisors credentials? Or even asked the more important question. How many houses does your Site Supervisor manage at once?
You see when you talk with a Project Builder you need to realise a couple of things. When a company reaches this size and they have an impressive office and many staff they have very large overheads. For them to be competitive in the home building market they need to stretch each of their staff over as many jobs as possible, and pay their sub-contractors as little as possible in order to support the structure of the business. Pretty scary right. Especially when you consider it could be your home that they are building.
What can you do to avoid this situation?
Well if you want a superior quality home built by the Builder that you have chosen, then you need to be dealing with a custom home builder.
You see the difference with these builders is that they have personal oversight of your home. They will be directly communicating with you as the home owner and in some cases, carry out some of the work themselves.
These companies usually also use the superior tradesman from within the area, the ones who aren’t willing to work for nothing and cut corners in order secure ongoing work with the Project Builders.
