Deciding to build a new, custom home in Plainfield is a big decision with a lot of key steps. Before you can break ground, you need to choose a builder that best aligns with your goals and visions. With years of experience building stunning custom homes for families in the Plainfield area and beyond, we know exactly what you should ask yourself when researching potential builders.
- What’s their reputation like?
Once you have an initial list of builders, do a deep dive on who they are. While testimonials from their website are a great place to start, they’ll probably be slightly biased. Dig into reviews on every platform possible, like Google My Business, Facebook and Houzz, to make sure they treat their customers the way you want to be treated. If their reputation seems too good to be true, a reputable builder will be happy to provide you samples of their work or even connect you with previous clients. Don’t be afraid to ask!
- Can they give me what I’m looking for?
Every custom home builder has their own style, and it’s important to make sure their capabilities match your vision. While some are incredibly versatile, other builders have specialties that may not mix perfectly with what you want. For example, a custom builder that typically creates traditional American or farmhouse-style style homes may not be the right choice for you if you have minimalistic, modern taste. Be sure to view their past work and be upfront about your expectations.
- What’s their process like?
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, call your list of preferred builders and ask what a partnership with them will look like. Do they offer free consultations? Will they design your home with you step-by-step? Will you be involved in the entire process, or will they handle everything? How do they estimate pricing? Questions like these will give you a good understanding of how they work and if they’re right for your project.
