Frequently Asked Questions
A : We believe that in construction, what makes a contractor great is not only their ability to avoid foreseen problems, but also by their ability to adjust on the fly and deal with unforeseen problems when they arise. With over 45 years of experience, we have seen a lot of different things! This gives us a great database to pull from when things don’t go our way. In the event that something does come up unexpected, you can count on us to amend the issue quickly and effectively with no additional cost – or headache – to you. One of the benefits of being design-build is the efficiency created within problem solving (see more about design-build). As your contractor, it is our job to protect you from the stress of construction, and that’s what we do best.
A : The number one thing to consider when building a custom home is that you are purchasing both a product and a service. The reality is, you will spend an extensive amount of time and energy with your builder during the construction of your new home. Your relationship with your builder is as important – if not more important – than the product that you will receive at the end of the process. The experience and customer service that you will receive can be the difference between your home meeting your expectations or not. There is an extremely high amount of trust required to ask someone to build your dream home for you. We know this, and we don’t take your trust for granted. We’ve geared our entire process to take care of you first, because we know how important that is.
A : Colorado is such a great place to live! The mountain views and sunny weather is unbeatable, however, even in beautiful Colorado we have to be aware of some potential pitfals when buying land. Expansive soils, flood plains, high bedrock, fire danger, and high water tables are just a few. We’ve seen just about every situation here in Northern Colorado, and we know what to look for when buying land. We’ll help you find a great lot and have the means to help you identify these things before you purchase it, so you don’t need to worry about getting into something that you’ll later regret. As a licensed real estate agent, we can help you from the very beginning of your journey all the way to the end (see more about this service).
A : In summary, two major things make us stand out from other custom home builders; we are a design-builder (see more about design-build), and we are centered around Building Made Personal. It is our goal to make sure you have a great experience and have fun the whole time. We will get to know you and your family well during our process and will customize the process for you in every way. From breaking ground celebrations to blog videos to ribbon cutting ceremonies, we’re here to make this a lasting memory with you and your family. After the process is over, we’ll take the extra step in making sure your home is everything you expected it to be.
A : Our goal is always to build a long lasting friendship with you, therefore our warranty comes with a ‘no questions asked’ policy on most items. We want you to be happy with your new home and we will do everything we can to make that happen. Our warranty lasts one year, but we would never turn away one of our customers who had a warranty concern in the 13th month. We’re both practical and realistic and are here to serve you.
A : Our typical design-build process takes between 10 and 12 months. This depends largely on what time of year we start and how long the design phase takes.
A : We realize different people have different priorities and dreams for their new home. Understanding this, we start with your priorities and dreams and create a game plan customized for you to accomplish those goals within your budget, beginning with the design. Every home we build is a completely custom project designed by us and built for the people who are going to live in it. We customize every part of the process and cater it for you, from the specifications to the architecture to the contract to the selections.
