Q: Is the length of time a builder has been in business important?
A: Every contractor starts somewhere, and the best ones work hard during their early years to establish a good reputation. However, homeowners need to decide if they want to be part of someone’s learning process. One advantage of a contractor who has been in business for a decade or more is their longstanding relationships with subcontractors and suppliers. A high-quality contractor will develop relationships with high-quality subs, and these relationships have a lot to do with keeping the project on schedule.
