If you are planning on building a custom home in Meridan, or surrounding areas like Eagle, Star, Middleton, or Emmett, ID, we want you to know a little more about Riteway Builders, and in general what to look for in a custom home builder before hiring one.

Check The Paperwork
Before getting started, you’ll want to check for a valid business license and insurance certificate. No matter how legitimate a company may look, it is a vital step to check the paperwork.  If all paperwork is in order, it’s time to researching reputation and reviews.

Check The Track Record
It today’s world, it just takes a second to pull up reviews and ratings online.  Don’t forget to visit the social media sites for a builder, and read customer comments.   In addition to some online research, ask your potential builder to provide a list of customer contacts and addresses that you might be able to visit with in person.  Ideally, ask for projects that are of a similar magnitude and style of the home design you like, so that you gain some ideas about how you want your new home to look. 

Attention To Detail
While asking questions and for information, pay attention to the communication and organizational skills of the builder. Does he or she listen carefully and respond with clear and informative responses?  Is the builder’s proposal detailed and thorough?  

What Is The Builders Style
Everyone has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to the style of home that they prefer.  There is no right or wrong style, so if you want a modern industrial look, choose a builder who’s previous home designs reflect that style.  Some builders are experienced with a wide range of different home styles, just make sure they have experience building using the style that suits you. As mentioned previously, don’t hesitate to ask for a possible walkthrough of other homes they have built. 

Obviously, there are other information and details that you’ll want to consider before making an informed decision when choosing a custom home builder. Just consider the above tips and you’ll be on the right track.
