What do new home builders do?


For builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform Norfolk, VA market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Norfolk, VA market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. They also obtain the necessary permits.

A good builder has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on Norfolk, VA zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
