How to choose the right construction company for your home

Building a home is an important process for every family. You may have been preparing years for this moment. Likewise, if you have had your house for years and are thinking about building a house extension or doing renovations, there is a lot at stake. But with so many options out there, how can you make sure you are choosing the best construction company to work on your project?

It’s important to make sure that you are choosing the right professionals. After all, it is your home, your money and your time, so you need to choose the best construction company to work with. Here are some of the things you should be looking for when making a decision.

Find experienced builders in your area

The first step, of course, is to do a local search. You will want to make sure that the team has extensive experience in the area of construction that you need help with. For instance, some construction companies specialise in renovations or house extensions. 

Make sure you choose a company that really understand your needs and requirements and are reliable and experienced.

At OakCroft, we are located in the south-west of England, across Dorset and Devon, where we offer a wide range of construction and renovation services, including new home builds, landscaping and exteriors, home renovations and garage building. 

We operate to extremely high standards to build all the projects we work in. That’s why you can trust us to look after your house throughout the whole construction process.

Request to see previous projects 

Before you start working with a new construction company, you may want to look for previous references from other clients. Looking at reviews will give you an idea of how happy the clients were at the end of the projects. 

However, it is also important to speak with the company about their previous projects so that you get an idea of how they work and what to expect during the construction process. 

We are more than happy to have a chat with you before we start working together to show you some of our previous work and answer all the questions you may have. You can also find some examples of our previous projects here.

Get in touch with us to find out more about our projects and how we worked with them to make sure we met all their initial requirements. 

Find a team that will finish your project on time

Some companies delay projects for months. This can be problematic for various reasons. To start with, more time usually means an increase in the overall cost of construction. You don’t want to end up paying too much because of poor planning, so it is important that you work with a team that can explain what every part of your project actually entails so that it doesn’t end up taking more time than it should. 

Besides, it is no secret that construction work can disrupt your life in a major way. Because of this reason, at OakCoft we always make sure that we finish on time, meeting all the deadlines and producing work of the highest quality, so you always know you can expect the best results.
