Choosing the right builder

Choosing the best builder - where to start?

Most of us will know someone who has either had added an extension to their home, carried out renovation and conversion projects or perhaps even ventured as far as doing a self-build to achieve the house of their dreams. However, we probably haven’t thought how they went about appointing their builder. With ever increasing media coverage of ‘rogue builders’ in the industry, can we be forgiven for our misconceptions around choosing the right builder?

Finding a good builder who’s reliable and trustworthy can be quite daunting, especially if it’s the first time you’ve had to source one. The right builder should fill you with the confidence that they can realise your building plans and will deliver the project on time and to budget. Ideally, you want to work with someone you can form a trusting partnership with; one who you get along with as they will seem part of the onsite family for a while.
