Contract transparency when evaluating builders

The Advantages of Building with GH Builders

By | New Homes

When you’re looking to build a new home, the ultimate goal of your project is to build a home that works for you and your family. And when it comes to building a home from the ground up, there are many companies available to take on your project, but how do you know which one is going to be the right fit for you? After all, choosing the wrong builder can be extremely detrimental to the outcome of your project, which means that you must do your research before finally choosing the right builder for your home. At GH Builders, we take pride in setting ourselves apart from the competition, and we do this in a number of unique ways.

Here are the advantages of building with GH Builders.

GH Transparency

Building a home shouldn’t be a guessing game. Often times, homeowners are shocked when they get the final bill or disappointed when they see the end result. GH Builders never wants you to feel that way, which is why we provide contract transparency with every project that we take on. From the cost of your home to the features inside and out, you’ll know what to expect. And with our “Design Your GH Home Online” portal, you can design your perfect home from your computer and see how each feature will impact your bottom line.

GH Builders also provides a master spreadsheet with all security information and data wiring, so that you know what’s running through your home. There are no secrets, no gray areas. When you partner with GH Builders, you know what you’re getting and exactly how much it will cost.

GH Diligence

Taking extra precautions to ensure that everything is done right throughout all facets of your project is one of the most important aspects on the GH Builders mission. For example, the GH team tapes off all openings, electrical outlets and wiring prior to beginning work on the drywall segment of the process. This ensures that no drywall mud accidentally gets into any areas where it shouldn’t be and nothing is compromised in the process. This also keeps all aspects of the space clean and looking brand new. Other examples of how GH Builders goes the extra mile include:

  • Specialized drywall for each area of the home.

  • Clean up of all trash and materials from the jobsite every day.

  • Continued maintenance and practices in place to ensure that all work is being done efficiently and correctly.

Choosing a builder who takes the extra time to make sure things are done right is what you deserve for your home project.

GH Solutions

Staying within budget is important when it comes to building your new home, and you may get discouraged if you have your heart set on a certain feature, but it’s out of your budget. With many builders, this happens and there’s nothing that can be done; however, with GH Builders, we work to make sure that you get what you want. For example, some clients desire counter-depth refrigerators, but this can often times be more expensive in smaller depths. GH Builders realized the desire for this and decided to build out the wall behind the refrigerator to accommodate a full size refrigerator, giving it the counter-depth appearance. Because of this, clients can get what they want without going over budget.

When you’re looking to build a home, be sure that you find the right builder who will help you achieve your goals for the home. Because every homeowner is unique, a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Find the builder who gets you and understands your vision.

The GH Builders team is excited to help you build the perfect home in Golden Gate Estates! Call (239) 260-1755 or visit www.ghbuildersnaples.com to learn more.

Why Contract Transparency Matters When Evaluating Builders

By | GH Builders Technology

In the modern world, we have options…a lot of them. From your car to your clothes, your pets and your food, there seems to be a world of options to choose from and the home building industry is no exception. When you’re on the hunt for a builder, not just any builder will do, and hiring the wrong home builder can be a disaster. One of the most important aspects of the home building process is contract transparency, which if you can believe it, can sometimes be hard to find with many builders. Knowing what you’re getting and what to expect during the building of your home is crucial and unnecessary headaches, like hidden fees can cause problems. Here’s why contract transparency matters when evaluating builders.

Knowing What to Expect

Building a new home can come with a lot of questions that need to be answered by you. That’s why it’s important to iron out the details with your builder, so that there are no surprises before, during or at the end of your project. Aspects of your project that will need to be clear and concise include:

  • Timeline

  • Cost

  • Home design

  • Lot details

  • Finishes

the list goes on. Being able to refer back to your contract to get the answers you’re seeking is a big advantage. After all, it is almost impossible to remember everything you talked about with your builder, so instead of wondering about a specific detail, you’re able to check your contract and know exactly what you’re getting and what to expect.

Knowing What You Can Afford

A big factor in building a home is cost. This may not come as a shock, but if you’re not well-versed in the home building industry, you may not be aware of how changes to the layout or additional features can impact the numbers…and the timeline of your project. Seeing these details in black and white can help you figure out just what your budget is, so that you can get the most out of your home project. Plus, having transparency in your contract means no hidden fees and no surprises.

Here at GH Builders, we offer a web feature that allows clients to make structural changes to their project, helping them to better understand how these changes can impact costs. Prospective clients, as well as current clients are able to utilize this feature to go through all major structural options, seeing how the price changes automatically for all areas of the project that can actually be controlled. There are some exclusions to this, one of them being land options, since building in Golden Gate Estates has many variables that are discussed in the preliminary stages. No competitor in this market offers this type of calculating tool, which helps take the guesswork out of the entire way the home building process works.

The Importance of Contract Transparency

Finding a builder who offers contract transparency is not only helpful, but imperative to the success of your project. Not only does this increase the level of trust that you have in your builder, it helps keep everyone involved on the same page. In some cases, where there isn’t contract transparency, the homeowner may have an entirely different picture in their mind about their project than the builder has, which can result in tension and disappointment. The last thing you want to experience during this process is excess fees, longer timelines, added stress and not getting what you expected.

When it’s time to start a home project, look for a builder who provides you with a clear outline with no strings attached. Not only will you know what you’re getting from the beginning, so will your builder. After all, open and honest communication is everything when it comes to the success of your home project.

The GH Builders team is proud to provide contract transparency to its clients. Call (239) 451-6157 or visit www.ghbuildersnaples.com for more details.
