Tips on what to look for in a Toronto Design-Build firm?


There seem to be many options in today’s home design and renovation market. Unfortunately, sometimes too many options can be a problem. In addition, most companies have not been in business for over a few years. So how do you make the right choice? 

Well, I wish there was an easy answer to that question, but unfortunately, there is not; there are a few things you can look for that should guide you in the right direction.


Firstly make sure that all of your questions are answered. 

Don’t settle for vague, generalized responses to questions about designing and building your home. Instead, you should be impressed by each answer’s level of knowledge and expertise.


Second, trust your gut,

It might seem strange, but your internal sense of people is usually the best gauge when dealing with someone about something you don’t know much about.


Watch out for the sales pitch

Remember investing money into your home is the most significant expense you will ever have, and in most cases, I find people pay attention to the wrong cues to decide who they want to hire. Be careful of the salesman or woman. People want your business and will say anything you want to hear to get it. Always be cautious with the person that tells you everything can be done but is a little remiss on exactly how. This is where good questions come in and ensure they are answered satisfactorily. Do not ever settle for vague, generalized answers. Make them bring specific examples of either a design thought process or project costing that directly applies to your home. A good Toronto design-build firm will be able to answer any of your questions quickly and advise you on the best options for your home. This is a custom home business, and no cookie-cutter approach will work. Each house has a different set of variables, and each homeowner has a different set of needs. Talk to the person that will be doing your design or building. A salesman is neither qualified nor on the hook for either of those two areas of expertise.
