With so many types of home building companies out there, it’s a little tough to figure out who does what and who builds what. Here’s a quick run-down on how to tell the difference between custom and production home building companies.

Custom home builders generally:

Build on land you own. Some custom builders also build on land they own.
Build one-of-a-kind houses. A custom home is a site-specific home built from a unique set of plans for a specific client. Some custom builders may offer design/build services.
Build single-family homes.
Are generally small-volume builders (those that build 25 or fewer homes a year).
Tend to build high-end homes.

Production home builders generally:

Build on land they own.
Tend to use stock plans, but usually offer a variety of plan choices and options.
Build all types of housing — single-family, condos, town houses, and rental properties.
Are large-volume builders (those that build more than 25 homes a year).
Generally build for all price points — entry level, move up, luxury, etc.

Basic Precautions

There are a number of basic precautions that you should take whenever you are choosing a builder:

Where have they worked before?
Try and visit three or four of the Builders recently completed jobs and if possible, speak to the owners about the builders work.

Obtain Estimates
Ask two or three builders for estimates in writing, check to see that all work is included. Do not automatically choose the lowest one. Having work done cheaply may result in shoddy workmanship and sub standard materials being used.
Does the builder belong to a respected trade body?
Builders often claim to that they are members of trade associations. Contact you local Builder’s Association and ask for a list of registered members.

Ask to see your builders’ public liability insurance certificate. Also the work may affect your home & contents insurance – contact your own insurance company.
Agree the work and put it in writing
You should make an agreement or contract in writing with your builder. It should include, all work to be done, date of completion, security and safety, catering and lavatory arrangements, disposal of waste materials, hours of working and so on. (Please bear in mind any extra requests during the works may incur a cost at the end of the project).
Remember: Ask questions now, do not wait until it is too late
