Am I limited to a certain price range when building a custom home?
One of the most common mistakes made in the home building process is under-budgeting. The cost of building a home is based on many changing factors, such as size, location, labor and materials, and then there’s the current real estate trends to consider, which makes it impossible to nail down a perfectly accurate, one-size-fits-all. Building a home is a huge undertaking as is factoring in all expenses, which an experienced contractor should be able to do. Start the build process with an experienced licensed general contractor who knows the process. Be honest with yourself and your builder.
What if I am having a hard time solidifying my vision, but have a general idea of what I am looking for?
This is where having an experienced builder comes in. KellCo Custom Homes specializes in taking a build vision to the next level and creating a unique, one-of-a-kind home that will not only serve the needs of you and your family today, but for years ahead. Take the time to share with your builder your overall desires of the home and allow your builder to take it from there.
I’d like to keep things as simple as possible. Do I have to call someone else to help me with the interior design?
Many builders are able and appreciate the opportunity to help their clients with a concise plan, up front, on an interior design. KellCo Custom Homes delivers a complete design package to help you execute the design starting with the architectural phase. Having a strong team on every level during construction is critical.
What kind of new home warranty and/or insurance should I be looking for in a home builder?
Most home warranties are backed by the builder and can vary; some are purchased by the builder from an independent company that assumes responsibility for certain claims. Having a builders warranty is very important. Be sure to read over your contract agreement carefully as each contractor is different in offerings. In addition, a licensed general contractor should carry general liability insurance, workers compensation as well as builders risk insurance.
