Will My House Be Ready If I Build New Construction?
That is probably the most important question facing anyone who has decided to build new construction in Clayton, NC or anywhere for that matter. The prospect of being on a deadline can be daunting.What if its not ready? What if you relocate to Clayton based on a date of when you were told your new construction home would be finished....and it’s not?
So planning is the first step, how long does it take to build a new construction home in Clayton? Well lets say you have just decided to move to Clayton and you have a house plan that you love and are ready to sign a contract with a custom home builder to have them build it. First thing you have to do is find a builder, then you have to get references from that builder, at least 10-20 and if they can’t provide you with a healthy list of satisfied recent customers then you need to move on
. There were NINE subcontractor vans on this home being built by Steve Corker with Corker Enterprises today.....you can be sure it will be finished as promised!
So now you have found the builder who will build your dream home, from this point before any plans have been ordered it can take seven months, it will probably be six and it could be as little as five. How come?
There are a couple of factors that come into play when it comes to getting a house built on time, here in Clayton, NC we have a mild climate especially in winter, rain may delay the build but we don’t see the bitter cold and freezing that parts of the North East will. Next up is how busy is the builder, do they have a team in place ready to go, can they handle a couple of jobs at the same time? Is the builder you choose financially sound ?
Will the custom home builder be at the job site on a regular basis, in today's home building world almost all the work is done by subcontractors and so it’s imperative the builder is at the job site, not all the time but enough to make sure the job is being done correctly and on schedule.
Are you allowed on the building site ? Sounds weird right,you’re building the home of your dreams and some builders don’t want you on the job site. There are safety issues undoubtedly but you should be able to visit your home being built, the best plan is to set up a time that’s best for you and the builder if you need to speak and if you just want to check on progress go in the evening or on Sunday, remember a good custom home builder is watching the schedule and unexpected stops will delay the build.
Probably the biggest delay is going to come from changes made after construction has started or if the builder has to wait for decisions to come back from the buyer, so again it’s very important you can feel comfortable talking to the builder and not afraid to voice your opinions and ask questions up front, you will be dealing with this person for the next six months.
Each stage of construction of your custom home should have an anticipated completion date, the footing, the foundation, the framing, drywall, electrical, plumbing and if they are all met, you should have no worries, if it feels like you and the builder on on the same team, then you have chosen the right builder.
