Things to think about when choosing a builder.

Building a new home or renovating an existing house is a big deal. If you have been through a home-building or renovation project, you'll understand there's a lot more to choosing a builder than getting the best price. The following information is designed to help you to make the right choice.

A good place to start when choosing a builder in the Far North is to look for one who belongs to either the Master Builders Association or The New Zealand Certified Builders Association. Builders belonging to either of these organisations have been through a strict vetting process that ensures they have a history of stability and success and a solid reputation for realising homeowners’ aspirations.

You should also check to make sure your builder is a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP). The New Zealand Government licence builders so that the public can have confidence the builders working on their homes and buildings are competent, and that homes and buildings are built right.

It's also important to find a builder you can relate to, with good local knowledge and communication skills. Meet with your builder and make sure you can relate to them on a personal level before engaging them. Don't be afraid to ask for references and examples of previous projects.
