Good to Know: Top Questions to Ask When Comparing Kentucky Custom Home Builders

Starting a new home project is exciting and sometimes a bit overwhelming. After all, your home is one of your biggest investments. When you build one from scratch, you want guidance from a professional to help you through the process.  

So, where do you start when choosing from Kentucky custom home builders? Try asking each firm you’re considering these questions: 

  1. How many years have you been building custom homes? 
  2. Can you provide references or examples of your previous work? 
  3. Do you specialize in any particular style of home? (In the Rivers Pointe community, we have a wide variety of home styles to choose from.) 
  4. How long does it typically take to complete a custom home build? Can you provide a detailed schedule of the construction process? What measures do you take to ensure the project stays on schedule? 
  5. What is your pricing structure? Are there any hidden costs? Can you provide a detailed breakdown of costs for materials, labor, and other expenses? 
  6. What payment schedule do you require? 
  7. Do you hire subcontractors, and if so, how do you select them? 
  8. Can you provide information about the suppliers you work with for materials?
  9. How often will you communicate updates on the progress of the build? What is the best way to contact you with questions or concerns? 
  10. How much input can I have in the design and customization of my home? Do you have an in-house design team, or do I need to hire a designer separately? 
  11. What kind of warranty do you offer on your workmanship and materials? 
  12. How do you handle any issues or repairs after the home is completed?  
  13. Will you obtain all necessary permits for the construction process? 
  14. How familiar are you with local building codes and regulations? 
  15. Who will oversee the day-to-day management of the project? 
  16. How do you handle any unexpected challenges or delays during construction?

Finally, as you compare Kentucky custom home builders, there are a few questions to ask about client involvement, such as:
