Choosing a builder to turn your dream home into a reality can be an overwhelming prospect. With so many builders to choose from, how do you know who will deliver the best quality results and who is best suited to your unique project?
At ARCA, we’ve learnt a few things over the years about what goes into crafting an exceptional home. Here’s what we recommend you look for in a high-quality builder.
1. A quality, hardworking team
A custom home is only as good as the team who builds it. One thing to pay close attention to is the team your chosen builder has assembled. Before making a final decision, you should determine the builder’s credentials, their experience in the industry and whether their completed projects align with your vision.
At ARCA, we demand the best and have put together a winning team of expert internal tradespeople and subcontractors with exceptional skills and a diverse range of experience.
A quality builder will have long-standing connections with local architects, designers, engineers, surveyors, subcontractors and suppliers to help bring your vision to life, within your timeframe and budget.
They should also go out of their way to ensure they are collaborating with you. From the first consultation, a high-quality builder will want to know exactly what you’re after, your unique requirements and the budget and timeframe you’re working towards. They’ll then be able to guide you through every step of the process and ensure you’re never left out of the loop.
3. Integrity and Honesty
It’s important work with a builder who is upfront, who will tell it like it is and not sugar coat or worse, obscure the realities of your project. This is especially important when it comes to budgeting and timeframes. When choosing a builder, you should look for someone who provides clear and straightforward information about the process, schedule and cost.
You can investigate the integrity and honesty of a builder by browsing their online portfolio and reaching out to past clients to hear first-hand what they’re like to work with. A quality builder will have a track record of satisfied clients who are delighted with the service and results they received.
A quality builder will be accommodating to your unique needs and requirements. At ARCA, we understand that no two clients or building projects are the same and we adjust our processes accordingly to provide a rewarding and memorable home-building experience.
Whether you already have your own plans or wish to engage our design team, we’re happy to accommodate and will work collaboratively with you to make your home building project a success. We’re always available to chat through your concerns or make any required changes during the preliminary or design stage of your build to deliver your project vision and goals.
