The case of building or renovating a house is not an easy matter. In addition to dealing with funds, you must think about the design, the type of material to be used and find a contractor to build it. Well, the matter of contractor or builder also cannot be considered trivial because choosing the right contractor is one of the important steps that will help you to realize your dream home. Meanwhile, don’t forget to prepare the surety bond as well.
So, in order to ensure that you do not choose the wrong contractor, then submit 15 questions below.

Are you licensed (if needed) and insured?
How do you compare your services with other contractors? What is the most important advantage of the house that you build?
What kind of warranty is offered?
Can you give me references from your previous customers? Do you build sample houses that I can visit? If not, can you help me see the house you have built for your customers before?
What energy saving features are there in the house that you build?
Do you build only based on the house design that you provide? Or can it be if I prepare the design by myself?
