What Do Home Builders Do?

A builder wears many hats, and when it comes to homebuilding they have a multitude of tasks. In general, builders are like responsible project managers, they oversee the different kinds of tasks involved in construction. Then again, there’s the master builder which is at the top of the hierarchy when it comes to skills, experience, and construction knowledge.

What knowledge and skills should a Master Builder have?

With construction, there are so many project details, it’s important to have good organisational skills. There are numerous things you should have your eye on if you are a builder. Mainly, you have keen oversight on the project blueprints, the build timeline, daily work hours, the work crew, access and permits, construction materials by type, installation details, and so much more.

It takes a very capable and highly-skilled person to have all of that on their task list on any given day. Master builders have a strong sense of leadership and accountability, plus a great sense of calm and control that they easily bring into the worksite.

Pricing that’s fair for the owner and good for the business. So there’s no room for guesswork there. When a builder knows how much things cost they can plan out the budget of the project accordingly.

Builders in Whangarei are amiable fellows. Most get along well with practically anyone and for this reason alone, a builder is guaranteed to have a solid network of suppliers, contractors and trade accounts that they can call in for their construction projects. That industry ‘black book’ doesn’t happen overnight, it’s built over a number of years through numerous projects under their belt.

A master builder is literally a ‘builder’. If put to task, they can do the work themselves like doing the hard labour of the build with their own bare hands. That’s why nothing gets past them, they know quality work when they see it, and they also know when to call out sloppy and unsafe installations. They expect nothing less from their crew, but high quality craftsmanship and the dedication towards building a home.
