Choosing A Builder Abroad
|Money : Overseas Property|
Like any service provider, you need to be naturally wary of any builder, whether at home or abroad.
Expecially abroad however, it is critical that you ask anyone you think of employing for references to other work they have done - and then actively contact as many of these people as you can and see if they are satisfied with the work.
Why? Because you don't want any nasty surprises which would be much more time consuming in the long run than looking at examples of existing work and contacting the people who had the work done.
If you can, befriend a local who can give you advice, however be wary of too strong a recommendation, because in close knit communities it is quite likely the person they recommend will be a family friend, and therefore may not be the best choice for you!
Bottom line: research will pay off for you in the end.
