The decision to buy a new build often boils down to personal preference. Some people prefer dated-looking properties, others look for a brand new home with little maintenance. Our clients often ask us if there is any difference between the two, and we explain that the difference is quite significant; here are some of the major benefits of buying a new home.Design input Buying a new home gives you the opportunity to have far greater input into the final design. Working from a blank canvas makes it far easier to personalise each room, meaning that your house will start to feel like your home in no time at all. Structural warranty All new builds come with a certified structural warrant, which offers a guarantee against any structural damage to your home. Equally, each new build will have been overseen by structural engineers trained in the latest developments of the field, so you can be sure your new home is structurally sound. Energy efficiency Standards surrounding energy efficiency have increased dramatically over recent years, which means that any new build has to comply with these rules. As such, all new builds offer great levels of energy efficiency, something that really benefits the planet, and your bank account! Security Security is always a feature of new builds regardless of the area they are in. The security facilities and infrastructure of a new build are always more effective than that of older dwellings and thus are significantly more difficult to compromise. Safety Equally, you can be sure that the gas and electrical supplies within the building are all secure. New builds go through a rigorous testing process, and gas and electricity safety certificates will only be released if the trained inspector is certain there are no faults. This will give you and your family that extra peace of mind. With all our skilled professionals under one roof, there will be no need to go to multiple traders such as plumbers, electricians, builders, carpenters or decorators because Williams provides the whole package. From the initial consultation meeting, through to design, supply, install, and maintenance, our team will be with you every step of the way.
