Know the risk.

The Builder or Contractor is the source of knowledge for these owners so to keep them safe, policies must be explained and enforced. If your Builder or Contractor provides a Homeowner Manual, it should include safety tips and recommended times to visit the jobsite
Schedule visits in advance.
Give the homes in Owensboro KY Builder or Sales Representative notice before visiting or planning a stop. The more preparation the Builder has, the more likely they can be to have the jobsite ready for your visit to ensure your safety.
Have someone show you around.
Once an owner visit is scheduled, have a representative meet you their so they can take you around the jobsite and point out what’s going on, and to help avoid any accidents. This will not only make you feel safer, but can be extremely valuable, as the Builder or Builder’s representative can take the time to answer your questions and point important things out.
