Of all the decisions involved in building your dream custom home, the biggest one you have to make comes before the process starts. Choosing the right custom home builder can make or break your dream custom home project.
There are many people who do not like the houses they live in because the designer did not listen to what they want.
Hire the right design-build team for your custom home, and you’ll be surprised how smooth sailing building a home can be. Hire the wrong custom build company, prepare yourself for overwhelming stress.
With the right custom building team, you get the house you want and need. With the wrong custom builders, you end up settling for less.
Here’s what to look for when trying to hire a custom home builder:
Comfort and compatibility
You will be working with your custom builders for quite some time on a project that is very important to you and your family.
First, you should be comfortable with them. Second, you should be compatible — is the builder imposing their vision on you?
So make sure you get along swimmingly with your custom builder and that they listen to your needs and wants.
Diamante Homes never forget that it’s YOUR HOME, YOUR DREAMS and YOUR MONEY. We listen well to what you want for your home.
A good track record
A very crucial step to take when deciding on a custom builder is to look at their portfolio – the houses they’ve already built.
Check their projects in your neighborhood and see if their construction sensibilities align with yours. You have to establish that the custom builder is able to design and build you your dream home. If your dream is to have a modern home, ensure that the custom builder is able to build modern and elegant designs.
Diamante Custom Homes is recognized as one of the top Design Build firms in the country. We consistently receive extensive recognition with some of the most prestigious awards in the home building industry including:
- Parade of Homes Awards
- Summit Awards
- Home and Garden Best of Show
- The 2006 US Dept of Commerce – Minority Business Development Agency – Construction Firm of the Year
Years of experience
Custom builders who have been in business for many years are able to offer better quality and value for your money. Experience cannot be bought and you need experts and not a novice in your home.
The longer they’ve been in the business, the more skills they have acquired and more fine-tuning opportunities they’ve had. Experienced builders have the capability to understand your needs better than custom builders who are just starting out.
Diamante Custom Homes has built many houses in the fastest growing markets in all of Texas. We have been in business for over 10 years and show no signs of stopping!
Another crucial thing is to verify if the custom builder you’re considering is operating with a license. A custom builder with all of the right documentation will get a quick approval process for various applications and will be able to offer a home warranty to protect you against losses.
Choose a custom builder who is a member of the home association of builders. What this means is that you can trust the company and they adhere to higher standards if they’re part of a reputable organization.
Diamante Homes Custom Builders are part of a small group of nationally recognized custom home builders — The NAHB Builder 20 Club — carefully selected by the National Association of Home Builder by invitation.
The members are identified as the “Highenders” and communicate on a daily basis as an informal board of directors and meet semi-annually to discuss industry-related matters.
