How To Choose The Right Custom Builder Perth

Choosing The Right Custom Builder Perth

Project or Custom – How to choose the right Builder for your new home

Project Home Builders have many pre-designed plans to suit different block sizes & budgets.  The design will be generic & not necessary tailored to client needs, there will also be limitations on what changes can be made.

The process with a Custom Home Builder is personal & bespoke.  The Builder begins with a blank canvas & a wish list, from which a unique home design is created with the client, to suit the actual block of land, it’s orientation, lifestyle needs & budget.

It’s important to know the questions to ask your prospective Builder instead of finding out critical information when it’s too late.

  • Don’t entertain pressure sales – sign a building contract only when you’re ready
  • Once the building contract has been signed, will there be any change to the price
  • Compare standard inclusions between Builders
  • Ensure the contract documents will cover every aspect of the build
  • Be wary of PC (Prime Cost) & PS (Provisional Sum) amounts & ensure the $ value proposed is sufficient
  • Enquire about the builders variation fees & charges, for post contract changes
  • Who will be the point of contact throughout the whole process
  • Expected time to commence from contract signing
  • Expected construction time frame from commencement to completion
  • Who is the project manager & how often does the work get inspected
  • How many homes will be under construction & supervised at any one time
  • Owner ease of access to site visits from lock up stage
  • Builder after hours flexibility for scheduling meetings throughout the process with owners
  • Check the builders registration & licence status
