How To Hire A Builder

So you’ve decided to build, now what? When it comes time to hire a builder, the process can seem overwhelming. How do you choose the right company? Dunlap has been serving the WNC area for over 40 years, and during that time, we have been fortunate to work on projects in a wide variety of sectors. We have some tips to help you hire the best builder for your job. 

The Type Of Construction Matters

Not all builders are qualified in all types of construction. What this means is that you need to narrow down your choices to experienced, appropriately licensed companies for the sector you’re building in. In some cases, like municipal construction, there are entirely different codes and procurement processes that must be adhered to. In other cases, it may be a matter of familiarity with materials and function – like restaurant construction. It’s rare to find a single builder with experience in as many areas as Dunlap. Because we have been in business since 1979, we have had the opportunity to grow our expertise in nearly all areas of commercial, municipal, restaurant, and even medical construction. Truly a one-stop shop, we hold a vast portfolio of experience to offer any potential client.

Hire A Builder That Understands Your Vision

Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, meet with several companies to get an idea of their process. During this time, you’ll get a sense of whether or not they understand your vision for the build. Connecting with a builder is about more than just dollars and cents. Ultimately you want to feel like the builder you hire will listen to your needs and goals and make appropriate suggestions from a practical point of view.

As a family-owned and operated business, we treat each project like it’s one of our own. Our clients come back to us over and over again because of our excellent customer service and attention to detail.
