How to determine the credibility of a building contractor?

Building contractors in chennai

Visit their previous projects:

Visit the building contractor’s previous projects to know the quality of construction. You can also get to know about the standard of their work. You can visit multiple projects done by the building contractor if time is there.

Background check:

Do research about that individual house builder on the internet. Check out the building contractor’s customer reviews on google, just dial and a few more websites if there are any negative reviews or positive ones. Check out the percentage of negative reviews over positive ones and come up with a decision.


Check how transparent the civil contractor is during the first few meetings with them in terms of money. If they are not transparent enough they can’t be trusted.


Check out how many years they are doing building construction and how many projects they have completed so far. Do they have enough knowledge about construction? Check with the building contractor all this information before proceeding further.

Professional Implementation:

Check out the way they implement the project are they working professionally? Are they having a systematic approach for building construction?

A good building contractor will follow a systematic approach to building construction. First, the floor plan will be designed and then 3d drawings will be done(optional). Once the floor plan is completed soil testing must be done to see whether the soil is weak or strong, how many tons the soil can bear, what type of foundation should be used, all these data can be collected only from the soil testing report.

Once the soil testing is done, structural detailing should be done by a certified structural engineer. This detailing will contain what type of steel to be used, column size, beam size, foundation type and height all the structure related details will be given in this structural drawings.

Soil testing and structural detailing is an important step to keep the building long-lasting and with great quality. This is the very basic difference between a mason and a good building contractor. Only a few civil contractors use this approach for building construction. Find a contractor who gives importance to all these steps and construct a building.

 We at Cityrene, follow a specific systematic approach for building each project with great quality and long-lasting. We explain to our customer why do we do every step and we explain the importance of it.
