- Make one comprehensive quality inspection checklist.
- When it comes to inspecting your build, go around with your builder and compile one comprehensive list. An organized and experienced builder will undoubtedly have one of their own ready to go. Arguments frequently arise toward the final stages of a project. It’s important to prepare yourself for these common pitfalls. When the general thrust of the rough work progresses, spirits are high.

- In this stage, there are many small items to attend to that all require an array of tradespeople. This part of your project can be difficult and expensive for your builder to organize.

Clear communication with timelines gives your home builder the space to do what they need to.

Let the builder manage your project. Project management can be tricky and views often vary in terms of best practice. However, in almost every case it’s best for you to leave management up to your general contractor. If you’ve done your homework, you’ll have a contractor who’s on your team and willing to have your best interest in mind at all times.
It’s ultimately your builder’s responsibility to make sure that they have the right subcontractors and manpower on-site at the right times. Allow them the freedom and flexibility to coordinate people and building materials. While outside sources like an independent architect or engineer can play important roles as experts who look after your best interests, it’s important that your builder run the project as they see fit on a day-to-day basis.
If you or another manager steps in too frequently, expect communication issues. This is when things go wrong. Choose a builder who’s professional and then let them do their job.
