Nov 19, 2021
Constructing a home that suits their family requirements is a dream for every person and it is once in a lifetime investment for many people. This kind of an investment should be made by with good clarity and trust. The construction ecosystem in India is very broken and non-transparent which makes the process of home construction very tedious, and time consuming and marred with quality issues, time delays and cost escalations if not done with in partnership with a good contractor. How to choose a good individual house builders or contractor? Look for referrals in family and friends or go for a professional home construction company? Or carrying out the construction on our own is the good choice? Which is the best option?
Problems faced by customers during residential home construction process
To start a residential house construction a customer needs to go through the stages of design, supply of materials and the actual process of construction. He needs to first find a good architect or design firm that can design the house as per his requirements, then he needs to get the detailed drawings of structural, electrical, plumbing, elevation, architectural, etc. Many of them do not even do a soil test or visit your site before giving you the structural drawings so how can you be sure that your structure is sound and will stand the test of time and nature.
As shown in the image below he has to interact with minimum 10 different trades (Civil, Electrical, Plumbing, Painting, Carpentry, Flooring, etc) of contractors or hire one general contractor who has the team and experience to bring together the people from 10+ trades and carry out the residential or commercial building construction. There are many individual home builders or contractors in the market but the find a good contractor is still a challenge and how to trust him with you dream home construction is a question to ponder about. Do you have the time to manage the residential construction project and do it add value to the project and do you have the required knowledge understand the construction methods being used by the contractor.
If you are finding a general contractor and giving the residential building construction as a turnkey contract, you need to know if the contractor is skilled or does he hire skilled employees and sub-contractors and also what is the material specifications he is promising and how he will ensure the quality of the materials and are you being given the wrong materials that do not fit your taste or quality standards. There is a lot of scope change the construction material specifications and it will lead to a struggle with your contractor to get him to use the right materials.
If you are purchasing on your own, you have to go to multiple home construction materials stores and take quotes and compare and buy the materials according the specifications desired which is a very tedious and cumbersome process by itself as you do not have a one-stop-shop for construction materials like Home Depot in any city of India, where you can just go and pick up all your materials as you need. You have to visit over 50+ stores in your city in different locations and chose on your own during the time of your residential house construction project as there is no website like Amazon to order the construction materials to your house construction site doorstep. Will you save time and money at the end of the day? In most cases, for working professionals this will not be the best utilization of their time to manage a home contractor or a home construction site, it is mostly a one-time activity so better to go with a trusted, experienced and professional residential home construction company.
