When you look for a builder to handle the construction of your custom home, you need to think about how much responsibility and freedom you want to give him in terms of the purchase of the raw materials. You need to ask yourself how much you are willing to compromise on the quality.
It is not that all custom home builders use substandard materials. A few of them resort to such methods which affects the whole home construction industry.
It is a normal practice in home construction wherein the quality of materials and construction is reduced in some areas and the quality is intact in some other areas. Builders do this to cut costs. You have to make sure that the builder you hire doesn’t do this. After all, you would be spending a lot of money in case of a custom home.
You need to ask the builder to be completely transparent about what kind of materials are being purchased, what are the brands being purchased and what are the costs. You need to involve yourself a lot more in the process of purchasing the raw materials for your custom home.
