How To Choose The Right Custom Home Builder

New home built by custom home builder Westrock Contractors

Are you ready to build your dream home? Does your current home need a refresh or remodel? If the answer is YES, one of the first and most important decisions you can make is choosing the right construction team to work with you to help you accomplish your vision. 

After being in the construction business for many years, I have put together a list to help customers make the decision of hiring an honest, experienced and reputable builder: 

Create a list of potential builders

  • Start with a Google search and Google reviews of local builders and construction companies. 
  • Review social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, etc) and also take a look at local newspaper publications to search for information on local contractors, builders and construction companies established in your area.
  • Local real estate agents are a great reference and may be able to help you in your search.
  • And probably one of the best tips for finding the best builder for your new home or remodeling project is to ask friends and relatives about contractors they have dealt with personally and have had a positive experience with on their own project. 
  • Lastly, search the Better Business Bureau The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a private organization that provides the public with information on businesses. It also handles any consumer complaints with the company you are considering to hire. 

Ask Questions & Get Answers 

  • Have a sit down meeting to go over all the questions you have for the home builders. This may take several meetings before you make your final decision. 
  • Then try to visit recently built homes or remodeling projects. If possible talk to home owners to get an accurate impression of the company’s quality of work and the builder’s reputation. 
  • Some questions to ask home owners include: Are you happy with your new home or remodeling project? If you had any issues, were they fixed properly? Would you buy another home from this builder?                                            

I hope this advice is helpful to any homeowner needing construction services in the near future. I can assure you as a builder the most important thing to me is to create a strong foundation with my clients. I will listen to your specific needs, operate with honesty and keep open communication throughout your building process. Whether building a new custom home, or remodeling your current one, our Westrock Team would be thrilled to help you with your next project!
