By Linda Ward


Getting a new house can be quite exciting. However, the hustle of shopping for readymade houses can be quite hard. Some houses are overpriced and with poor finishing. It is better to have a new home construction NH as you will be in charge of the design and quality of your premises.

Building a house is quite extensive and detailed. As a homeowner, you need to have a general knowledge of the process that takes place in constructing a house. A design or house plan is the first thing to be addressed. An architect or a home designer will help you come up with a suitable plan. A homebuilder or project manager then oversees the whole process of building.

The homebuilder will oversee all the activities and be responsible for hiring subcontractors to work on specific details of the house. He or she will also be the one responsible for paying the subcontractors. The first step in building a house entails work related to the foundation of the site and preparation of the site. The next step involves a rough framing process of the floor, wall and roof.

The next step entails a rough installation of electrical system, plumbing and heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Sewer lines, water supply lines and bathroom appliances are fixed at this stage. Insulation materials are installed to create a more comfortable environment. After insulation, drywall is hung and completion of interior textures is done. Exterior finishes and interior finishes are done. Driveways, finishing of floor and mechanical trims are completed lastly.

Choosing a homebuilder is very important. One should shop carefully so that they can have a good quality home in the end. You can get a list of potential builders from the New Hampshire Home Builders Association website or office. Newspapers and magazines also contain information on builders in the real estate section. Contact information can also be obtained from your local real estate agents. You can also ask for first hand recommendations from friends and relatives.

After conducting a search, come up with a list of contractors who caught your attention and set to interview them. During the interview, ask them all the questions you have in mind. Know about their working experience around New Hampshire. Visit the houses that a contractor has recently built. Most importantly, talk to the house owner to determine if the contractor delivered to their promise.

The quality of work that a company delivers will be evident in several features. These features include tiles, cabinetry, trim work and carpeting. The estimated cost can act as a guide, however, the cheapest is not always the best. Get a contract from the contractor and go through it before signing it. It should be clear on the design, materials, cost, warranties and payment schedule.

To avoid incurring costs of repair and replacements, it is prudent to select materials that are of good quality. Permits are required during construction in New Hampshire and it is up to the contractor to provide them. When the building is completed, the homeowner should conduct a thorough inspection to ascertain that the work is flawless. Any appliances, faucets, lights and windows should be working. Workmanship guarantees and home warranties will be used to sort out premature malfunctions and repair.
