Are there specific credentials required for custom home builders?
To create the custom home of your dreams, a contractor needs to have very specific experience and qualifications. Before you make any final decisions about the home builder you want to work with, be sure they have the required credentials. In the state of California, for example, the Contractors State License Board, or CSLB, is responsible for regulating and licensing professionals in the state who are part of the construction industry. This includes companies that design and build custom homes and perform various types of home remodels. Be sure the building contractor you are considering is properly licensed before continuing the process. Working with an unqualified builder who is not properly licensed can end up costing you a lot of wasted time, energy, and money.
What else is important to consider when choosing a building contractor for custom homes?
Once the credentials are double checked, now you can start to consider if you are comfortable with the company. Take some time to talk with the professionals you will be working with. Sit down with the designers and builders who will be working on your project. Ask for references from former clients who you can contact to find out what kind of service they provide. Follow up with these references and ask for honest feedback about their experience. Finally, ask to see a portfolio of work if it is not offered to you. Look over their past projects carefully and decide if the style and final custom homes fit with what you are looking for.
What is the benefit of choosing a contractor who can also do design work?
Designing and building custom homes usually takes the work of more than one type of professional. Architects design the plans for custom homes, and contractors complete the work by building the custom homes. However, when you choose to work with Goff Development & Design Co, we handle the entire process from start to finish. By choosing a full-service design and build firm, you save time and money, and you are guaranteed to receive the same level of personal attention and quality service during each stage of the process. As a knowledgeable and experienced full-service design and build firm, the most important part of our work is giving you the beautiful home of your dreams.
Are there various style options available for custom homes?
Just like if you were in the market to purchase a home, there are a variety of style choices available for custom homes. The style you choose depends on the final look, size, and layout that you prefer. Modern custom homes, for example, are characterized by sleek, geometric features and muted color schemes. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are Victorian style custom homes. These homes feature ornate details, unconventional color choices, and plenty of windows, towers, turrets, and other interesting decorative elements. The style you choose may also depend on a specific feature you prefer. Greek revival style custom homes, for example, can feature pillars, while Pueblo revival style homes have a strong Spanish influence and may even be made from adobe. Cape Cod style homes are exceptionally cozy and quaint. Ranch style custom homes include simple layouts and open floor plans. No matter what specific elements of a custom home are important to you, a knowledgeable, experienced designer will be able to help you decide which style, or combination of styles, will work best for you.
