One of the most important decisions you'll make while planning construction on your new home or remodeling project is choosing the contractor who will make it all happen.

Are they licensed and insured? Do they have a solid reputation with references that can back them up? These are all things you'll want to ask about before signing any contracts or agreements.

You'll also want to ask whether or not they're a member of the El Paso Association of Builders, which is a federation of over 9,000 people employed in the construction industry in greater El Paso and Southern New Mexico.

Better yet, you can simply visit the El Paso Association of Builders online and look through their member portfolio to find a reliable, trustworthy builder to help you take on your next home construction project.

Once you find one you like, get to know them. Ask questions about how they get involved in the construction business, what kind of projects they've worked on in the past, and anything else you're curious about.

After you've had a chance to get acquainted, it's time to really get down to business and partner up with your builder. This is your project after all, right? Be involved with every step of the process, make your voice heard, and get the results you want.

The El Paso Association of Builders is here to help.
