When a client is looking for a stress-free way to build their new home, they will want to hire a contractor that offers “turnkey construction” to build their home and take care of all the details.
Client responsibilities include: obtaining financing, finding the right property, choosing a floor plan, choosing colors, flooring, fixtures, wood finish, cabinet style, countertops, window and door styles, and deciding on amenities .
The contractor is responsible for: Everything related to the house being built. The contractor hires the bulldozer, frames the structure and finishes the interior. He is responsible for purchasing the materials and hiring the subcontractors. Everything is finished down to the cabinets and the carpet. When the house is finished, the client “turns the key” and moves in. A licensed contractor will provide a post-construction warranty, in addition to guaranteeing the performance of the project while it is being built. The contractor accepts all responsibilities that come with building the house.
What are the benefits of hiring a turnkey contractor?
A turnkey contractor builds a custom home for the client while protecting them from the headaches and stress of a construction project. The customer gets all the fun! They can choose their favorite amenities and colors and watch their dreams come to life. When everything is done, the client enjoys the final result. If something goes wrong, they ask the contractor to fix the problem according to warranty and performance guidelines. The contractor takes full responsibility so the client can relax and enjoy watching their new home being built!
Another way to ensure that each of your construction projects has a better outcome is when choosing a home builder or contractor for any construction project, always hire a licensed contractor, that is the first way to save yourself from future Headaches. So make sure you know everything that is included in your price; get your warranty guarantee in writing; do some research, including a background check; And always ask for references. If any of the information you want for the proposal is missing, or if they have information from you, those are red flags and I would suggest going ahead and finding a licensed contractor who will share all the information you need to feel comfortable going forward with your project.
Building a home should be a stress free and fun experience, finding the right builder allows you to have just that!
