Are All New Home Builders The Same?

February 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

When asking the question "are all new home builders the same?", be prepared for a long and complex range of answers. Many people, including builders and contractors, will have a differing opinion on this topic and different reasons for their answers. In short, however, the answer is: no. But why is this and how can you tell the difference?

Well, just as there are many types of residence out there, there are also many types of new home builder. Not all will be suited to the project you have in mind, which is why time and research are vital in choosing a good contractor. There are some contractors who specialize in renovations, others in extensions, and others still in residences from scratch.

Once you have found a builder that specializes in new homes, however, you're in a whole new ballpark. New home builders can generally be placed into one of two categories - custom and tract builders. The contractors and quality of work will differ greatly between these two categories, so it is important to ensure you are choosing the best contractor you can:

Custom home builders do not buy their materials in bulk and tend to adhere to higher standards of quality in their projects. When using one of these builders, the buyer has complete control over all the choices - from features to colours to style - the overall look of their new home is completely up to them. While a custom builder does tend to cost a bit more, most buyers will agree that it is worth it in the long run. Tract home builders are known for creating "cookie cutter homes", which means that all their buildings are identical in almost every way. This is largely because these contractors buy their materials in bulk and use them in every project they are approached with. Because of this, lower quality materials are often used, which leads to lower quality homes entering the market. Even though these houses are cheaper to build, they do not last and make for very dissatisfied buyers.

So, when it comes to choosing a new home builder for your next project, keep in mind that they are not all the same. Ensure that you choose a contractor who is best suited to the project that you have in mind, such as a renovation, or an extension or a residence from scratch. Then look into custom and tract builders. By doing this, you can ensure that your new home builder does the best job possible.
