You're Planning to construct your dream home. You have a budget and a deadline. Now all you need is a builder. To help narrow your search, we’ve outlined a few factors to consider when choosing a contractor for your building project.


Delays are expensive. So your deadline is not negotiable. Make sure that when your contractor provides you with a start date and a completion date they can deliver. What is their past track record? Have other customers complained about missed deadlines or delays? Do they offer an on-time guarantee? If so, chances are they’re accustomed to meeting deadlines.


A contractor’s reputation is one of the most valuable assets. If your contractor has an honest and reliable reputation, you can feel confident that it stems from quality work and great customer service. Online reviews on websites like Google and Houzz can also be helpful.

Don’t hesitate to ask for references. If your builder is worthy, they’ll be happy to share them.


Decisions need to be made and details finalized throughout the construction process, and within a tight timeline. Open communication between contractor and client from start to finish is essential.

Make sure all of your requirements and specifications are drafted as annexures and agreements before sign with your contractor.

Workings drawings are the key when coming to construction, changes and modifications are always expensive and additional cost to you, make sure you freeze all of your requirements first and agreed before finalizing the contractor.


Meticulous builders are good. Read the company’s website, talk to previous customers and look at some of their past projects. Examining completed projects is the best way to assess the quality of their work.

Meet the team members that include all levels (engineers, technicians & laborers), understand the dedication and commitment at all levels.


In the end, it all comes down to your satisfaction with the way the project was managed and the finished product. Choose a contractor that puts customer service above all else. Make sure they listen, understand your needs, and deliver what was promised.
