Why Hiring an Architect Saves You Money
April 19, 2011 Leave a comment
If you’ve been working hard all these years as an OFW, building your dream house is one of the best investments you can make. An OFW’s dream house represents the fruits of your labor and the sacrifices you’ve endured during your time spent away from your family.
So should you hire just anyone to design and build your home?
A well-conceived residential construction project can be built more efficiently and economically. Let’s face it, building your home in the Philippines is not going to be a walk in the park. House design and construction is a long process that can be messy and disruptive if not done the right way.
That is why hiring a Filipino architect is a wise investment for your money and not an added cost when you design and build your home.
First of all, architects plan the project with you. As you get more ideas on how you want your house to look, your architect can make changes on paper much less expensively than when construction is already underway without an architect’s supervision.
An architect’s thorough drawings and specifications make it easier for contractors in the Philippines to accurately price and build your home. He/she regularly visits the construction site on your behalf to ensure that your project is being built according to your specifications.
Architects work with your budget and help you select the appropriate materials and workmanship at a fair price. Choosing materials and finishes that are beautiful and durable at the same time will help you save on frequent maintenance and replacement costs. A good architect always stays updated in the latest advancements in roofing, brick work, floor tiling, paint finishes, etc.
And, if you decide to sell your residence in the future, a sturdy and well-designed house has a higher resale value.
