Fundamental Questions To Ask Your Relocatable Homes Building Service provider
Because each lightweight homes building manufacturer is unique you have to be sure you ask each potential contractor the same questions. In the event that they have ‘other benefits’, list them separately your own goal is to learn your perfect match.
Ask your building contractor if they have a network of local builders with experience building and assembling relocatable homes in your area. If your building company is a long distance from your block of land, you need to know that there are local professionals who know very well what they are doing, as assembling relocatable homes are incredibly different from traditional homes. You should be ensured your local builders and technicians who will work on site doing the fundamentals and assemble work of your lightweight home have experience,… preferably the company you have chosen to manufacture your transportable home. If not, you will need to get other ways of ensuring the process goes smoothly like mailing daily videos to the manufacturer of progress –
the land before construction
the pegged area (measure it yourself and tell your contractor)
the concrete slab/slumps/footings
access to the land
placement of the segments
joining of the segments
power cable connections
and anything more your manufacturing contractor may require, or that you’re worried about.
There are two main pitfalls to avoid when choosing a local flip builder
Firstly, make sure your local builder has experience and not new to your building manufacturer’s ways as each manufacturer is different with unique building methods and preferences. Your local contractor needs to be ‘on the ball’ and proactive; not reactive.
Second of all, make sure your local builder has plenty of time to devote to your project. Unfortunately, good local builders are always in high demand and some of them undertake too many projects at once which can drag your building process out. Of course, this is where you will need to be sure you ‘match’ you, your building manufacturer (building contractor) and your local builder. Even if you score the best local builder to project manage the foundation, assembly and placing your signature to off of your easily transportable home, if he is juggling way too many other tasks, he may accidentally neglect something on building your shed or delay your build.
Interview a few good builders and do not be afraid to use a builder that is further away from your work site you would like. Paying a little more to operate a vehicle an extra hour for a good builder who has a reputation for exceptional work is better than using an inexperienced or overworked local builder.
