New Construction Solutions for Residential and Commercial Needs

It is impossible for the process of building a home to be a passive exercise because there are just too many decisions to be made on a regular basis. At Hornsby Roofing, we make sure that all your roofing needs are taken care of. We have more than 20 years of experience and there is no challenge that will be too complex for us to handle. There are some things you’ll need to know before you decide to buy a new home and we’re going to highlight some of them.

Before you can even think about building the home, you’ll need to run the numbers to determine if it is a feasible idea. You don’t want to be overstretching your finances just for the sake of getting a home. A good housing plan should offer a cost estimate tool. This is to enable you to know exactly how much you’re required to spend on the project. Once it is clear that you can afford to build your home, the next step would be to look for a house plan. You can reach out to an architect or purchase a predesigned house plan. If you intend to borrow, it is important to keep in mind that home construction lending is different from a typical mortgage.

There will always be things that are needed even after the construction is completed. Having a “punch list” is important so that you’re not caught off-guard. There are two categories of problems when making the punch list: Reasonable flaws and unreasonable flaws. You should account for both categories of the problems.

Build Green

The builder you choose will play a big role in the success of the project. You don’t want to be working with just any other person. Make sure that the builder has a track record for high-quality work and excellence. You should do research to find out if the builder has the necessary credentials for the job. A new construction project is always going to be complicated in nature and you will need a seasoned builder if you’re to pull it off.

There should be research on maximizing energy efficiency in your home. Since you’re building from the ground up, there is more control over the different aspects of the process. You can decide to use only materials that are environmentally-friendly and don’t contribute significantly to the carbon footprint. Don’t rush when selecting the insulation and HVAC systems.

Having a reliable builder working with you will solve most of your problems. You can rely on years of experience to help you with the different construction needs. For a general contractor for your home and roofing needs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Hornsby Roofing.
