How to choose the right Building Contractor

So you have finally made the decision to build a house. Congratulations! You’re going to be very busy – after all, there will be a lot happening now. You cannot hope to micromanage every little thing because construction is a multifaceted activity that requires a great deal of planning. The best thing to do is to entrust a good contractor with the building of your home. Sure there are hundreds of building contractors in Kannur. So how will you choose the right one?

Here are a few tips to help you:

  • Ask around: Friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, acquaintances etc. should be your first source. If any of them has hired a building contractor recently or in the recent past, ask them about their experience with the contractor; how much they charged, did they deliver on time, how good was their rapport with various vendors, did they do a quality job, and so on. Get references – as many as you can; make a list, with their contact details. You can also search online or in the yellow pages.
  • Phone Interviews: Talk to the prospective contractors over the phone and find out:
    • Do they handle projects similar to yours?
    • Can they provide financial references?
    • Are they available for the project?
    • How many projects do they have under way at the moment?
    • How long have they worked with their vendors and subcontractors?
    • What is their normal turnover time for such a project?

This will give you an idea how reliable they are, how much attention you can expect them to pay to your project, how smoothly and quickly you can expect the work to be carried out, and so on.

  • Meet them face to face: After your phone interviews are done, shortlist 3-4 contractors who sounded promising. Have detailed discussions with each of them about timelines, estimates and so on. An efficient and reliable contractor will be comfortable answering such questions and will be able to put you at ease.
  • Check out their work: Visit the sites where these contractors are working on projects and take a look for yourself how the work is going on. You will get a first-hand view of the efficiency, quality, politeness, and punctuality of the contractor and their workers.
  • Go deep: To make your final decision, ask prospective contractors to provide detailed estimates, with breakdown of the costs into material, labor, transportation, and so on.
  • Check payment schedules: See if the contractor offers flexible and reasonable payment schedules. If they ask for hefty advances, it’s a warning sign.

Apart from these you need to keep some things in mind, like not going solely by the price. Be a little wary of the lowest bidder – especially if the difference is very high. While you need to stay within your budget, quality, efficiency and reliability are more important factors when choosing a Construction Company in Kannur.
