When the time comes to select a new homebuilder in Baltimore, homeowners should have several criteria in mind. Finding the best custom homebuilder in Baltimore requires asking questions and considering the answers carefully.
First, before hiring a Baltimore homebuilder, inquire whether the builder has built similar homes in the past. Homes that are comparable in price, size, scale, in a similar neighborhood, and of the same quality. The right custom homebuilder in Baltimore will answer these questions concretely and with confidence. J Paul Custom Homes & Remodeling has a repertoire full of world-class custom-built luxury homes that are sure to excite any potential homeowner.
Next, confirm that any homebuilder in Baltimore under consideration has adequate insurance coverage. The homebuilder should also be bonded to appropriate levels for the project. Make certain the prospective homebuilder has general liability insurance and worker’s compensation in sufficient amounts? No matter who the homebuilder is, if the company does not have sufficient coverage, the homeowner may be liable for any damages or injuries that occur on the property while it is under construction.
As a trustworthy Baltimore homebuilder, we maintain separate bank accounts for each project. We provide our clients with viewing access to the account. We recommend avoiding any homebuilder in who pools assets for multiple projects.
We plan and price our entire projects in advance. This means that the project is planned out step by step, and each item is scheduled and priced before construction begins. As we work together to complete your project, you will make thousands of decisions. We will create a plan to cover every detail of construction. It is our part, as a premier Baltimore homebuilder, to develop this plan. Any clients working with us, as their homebuilder in Baltimore, should expect such a plan. We take this approach in order to it eliminate expensive, last minute changes during construction.
One final consideration in choosing a homebuilder is the fee structure. Some builders charge clients using a “cost-plus” fee structure. This is considered by many reputable builders to be a less than optimal arrangement. When choosing a homebuilder in Baltimore, pay attention to any fee for service arrangement. This fee structure means that the builder charges a set fee, based on the time required for the construction to be completed. This fee will not change due to contingencies. A fee for service structure incentivizes the builder, and subcontractors, to complete the home construction project within budget, and on time.
The homebuilder-homeowner relationship is a partnership and should be treated as one. Choose the homebuilder who values hard work, craftsmanship, and a customer-centered approach to business. Choose J Paul Custom Homes & Remodeling. Call Today.
