It’s important to verify the contractor’s credentials, experience, and evaluations to make sure they have the expertise you need for your unique project. Also make sure the contractor has the necessary insurance coverage to protect your project.
  • Consider sustainable options. Talk with your contractor about green building methods or using eco-friendly materials during the residential construction process.
  • Create a budget. Your contractor should give you a detailed cost estimate of the project so that you can determine what financing you need. 
  • Inform your neighbors. Let your neighbors know that there will be residential construction going on. Talk about any possible disruptions, such as noise or additional traffic, and address any concerns they might have. 
  • Consider securing short-term housing. Depending on the scope of the project, you might want to think about finding temporary housing. This can entail renting a home or apartment or living with friends or family. 
  • Remain communicative. Keep lines of communication open and consistent with your contractor. Resolve any issues or modifications right away to prevent delays.
  • Do a final walkthrough. Before declaring that your project is finished, take a careful walk through the finished home to make sure that everything matches the original blueprints.
