What Is Turn-Key Construction – Why It's a Great Way to Build a Home

When a customer is looking for a stress-free way to build their new home, they will want to hire a contractor that offers "turn-key construction" to build their home & take care of all of the details.

The customers responsibilities include: Procuring financing, finding the right property, choosing a floor plan, picking out the colors, flooring, fixtures, wood finish, Cabinet style, countertops, window & door styles, and deciding on the amenities.

The contractor is responsible for: everything involved with the home being built. The contractor hires the excavator, frames the structure, and finishes the interior. He is responsible for purchasing the materials and hiring the sub-contractors. Everything is completed down to the cabinets and carpet. When the home is finished, the customer "turns the key" and moves in. A Licensed Contractor will provide a post construction warranty, as well as guaranteeing the performance of the project while it's being built. The contractor accepts all of the liabilities that come with constructing the home.

What are the benefits of hiring a turn-key contractor?

A turn-key contractor builds the customer a custom home while protecting them from the headaches and stress of a construction project. The customer gets to have all the fun! They get to pick out their favorite amenities and colors and watch as their dreams come alive. When it's all done the customer gets to enjoy the finished result. Should something go wrong, they call on the contractor to remedy the problem according to the warranty and performance guidelines. The contractor takes on all the liability and responsibility so the customer can relax and enjoy watching their new home being built!

Another way to make sure every one of your construction projects will have a better outcome is when choosing a home builder or a contractor for any building project, always hire a licensed contractor, that's the first way to save yourself from future headaches. Then make sure you know everything included in their price; get their warranty guarantee in writing; do a little research, including a background check; and always ask for references. If any of the information you want for the proposal is missing, or if they withhold information from you, those are red flags and I would suggest moving on, and finding a licensed contractor that will share all of the information you need to feel comfortable before moving forward with your project.

Building a home should be a fun stress-free experience, finding the right builder enables you to have that!
