Here at David Jordan Homes, we have over a decade of professional experience in building custom homes for clients, so we can spot an unreliable home builder from a mile away. If you’re thinking about getting a custom home built for you and your family, it’s essential to choose the right company for the job.
Before agreeing to work with a home builder, make sure to watch out for these red flags to avoid costly issues or accidents down the road:
- Lack of Experience or References — If a home builder is unwilling or unable to show you examples of their completed projects, this is a major red flag. A trustworthy home builder should have plenty of references and photos of their successful projects.
- Unclear Contracts — Make sure to carefully look over the contract from a potential home builder to make sure it’s detailed, comprehensive, and informative. If it doesn’t have details or exact costs and timelines, you should consider a different company.
- Expensive Payments Before Work Begins — Although most home builders will require a deposit before starting a project, be cautious of a home builder who asks for significant amounts of money before they begin doing any real work.
- Lack of Credentials — You should always make sure that your home builder is licensed, insured, and bonded. These factors are key to protecting you in case they get injured on the job or if part of your home is damaged during construction.
