We always dreamt about building our own house. But when the moment finally came, even the thought of building a house from scratch was more than overwhelming. And all those horror stories about cawboy contractors... It really makes you think twice. But then my friend recommended using one of those "compare quotes" services. I came across Procompare online. I thought, I'll give it a go. I was surprised at how quickly builders contacted me. And on top of that they were all locals. After talking to them and some word-of-mouth recommendation, we went with Mr Mpho. So far, all is going smooth and according to plans. There were some bumps on the way, but Mpho handled it all very professionally, so we are completely confident he will continue in this way until the end. All I can recommend is get several quotes and go for a quality contractor.
Sizane and his crew extended our house. They did a great job, great value for money and a top quality finish. All works conducted in good spirit and all the team were all very polite and helpful. I can only recommend their services.
We were looking for a builder to remodel our home. After several quotes from Procompare and careful consideration we decided to go with Mr Trevor. Couldn’t be more pleased with the work that has been undertaken by him and his crew. I highly recommend him.
Before starting to build a house, you must have: a site plan, layout drawings, a fire installation drawing, drainage installation drawings, particulars of any existing building or structure that is going to be demolished (and you need to state how it will be demolished), and any other plans and particulars that your local authority requires.

The construction contract should include at least: the name of the contractor and contact information, the name of the homeowner and contact information, description of property in legal terms, the cost, description of the work, the completion date and the right to stop the project.
