Significant changes to your home like a new extension or a redesign of a particular area will typically call for a professional hand. Then comes the question "what should I look out for while selecting a professional builder?". This question is even more important when you have little or no experience in the area.

  1. Have a clear idea about the project you want to undertake.
  2. Start with referral from people you know.
  3. Ask the builder about previous projects. Request to see some of them if possible.
  4. Check if they are a member of any trade organisation such as the Nigerian Institute of Building (NIOB)

  7. Find out if the builder is insured in case of damage to your property or other accidents
