When you move into your new home there are a lot of things that are typically not quite finished. If you had your home built new then you received a fresh home that cannot have color on the walls for at least a year. This is because the contractor needs to be able to clearly see any stud pops or cracks. The ground commonly settles on construction sites and this settling can cause minor cracks in the drywall or paint.
Another thing that you might not like about your new house immediately is the basement. Some contractors will finish the basement but others ask that you wait a year to have it finished. This is for the same reason why they discourage paint colors on the wall. When your house is being constructed you have the option to pay an additional fee for more light sockets in each room as well as upgraded appliances or appliances at all. Some people prefer to bargain shop and find their own appliances at a cheaper price then the contractor will provide.
Exterior finishes are minimal on new constructions. Your home will most likely not have a fence or storage shed. These are after build features that you will need to have installed. You might get lucky enough to find a smaller scale builder that will go the extra mile and install a fence. Some home owners associations have specific rules on the type of fence that can be installed in a yard. If you acquire land in an established non-HOA neighborhood then you will not have to abide by these rules. You have options when it comes to the fence you are going to install in a regular neighborhood. You can install a wood privacy fence, a chain link fence or an iron fence. If there is an existing fence that needs repair you should still consult with a fence installation company. When seeking a chain link fence repair Denton TX and cities all across the United States have installation and repair specialists.
Before any fence work or shed installation can occur you will need to have a ground wire company come out and mark any spots on your property that has wires running underground. These are marked for your own safety reasons. You could get electrocuted or end up cutting important wires to your home if you dig before you have the land marked. You should also have the land marked for in ground garden spaces if you plan on utilizing a tiller. These companies come out free of charge and will spray paint your lawn to mark where wires are running. This will help you make a better plan when it comes to digging for gardens, installing sheds and having fences replaced or repairs.
When you are deciding upon what company to have service your home you should always acquire recommendations. You can look online and read reviews from previous or current customers and you can drive past previous jobs that the contractor has completed. This will give you assurance that you have made the right choice.
