What To Look for in a Custom Home Builder in Tampa

While browsing through the three, four, and five bedroom floor plans on our portfolio page, you may be wondering what to look for in a custom home builder in Tampa. With so many companies out there, one Google search and you are already overwhelmed.

The basic qualities you will want your custom home builder Tampa to possess are experience, knowledge, and trustworthiness. The first thing to do after your online search is to create a list of potential builders. Now, we will go through the list of companies and ensure that they possess the qualifications required to build your dream home in Florida.   


Most custom home builder Tampa, like Cogdill Builders of Florida, have sample custom home plans on their website. This selection of floor plans should coincide with your style and type of home you are looking to build. For example, if you are looking for a contemporary and modern design, cross off companies that strictly build farmhouses or traditional style homes.


Just because a company builds a large number of houses does not necessarily mean that they have the knowledge and background to construct the dream home for which you have been saving. Take a moment to look at the about section on each company’s website and ask them questions about their knowledge and skills during your phone interview. If they don’t pass the test or their story doesn’t match up, cross them off the list.
