Once the permits are obtained, the builder will prepare the site and select how the home will be situated on it. They oversee the entire construction process, which includes—but is certainly not limited to—laying the foundation; erecting the framing, roofing and siding; building the walls; and installing the plumbing, heating and electrical work.
The local building department will inspect the construction site for code compliance throughout the home’s construction. But a professional home builder will make certain the home meets both code and warranty guidelines long before and after the officials show up. Once the house is finished, the builder informs the appropriate municipal departments that it is ready for final inspection and the approval that the home is safe for its new owners to move in.
Professional home builders strive to deliver a home that will make their customers happy. To meet this objective, they act as public relations professionals. The builder will discuss the construction process and building schedule with the buyer, and plan times when the buyer can tour the building site and ask questions about the status of their new home.
Home builders are also business people who establish a network of reliable and quality materials suppliers and trade contractors with whom they conduct business on a regular basis. They are schedulers and record keepers. They must think on their feet, keep complex construction timelines and tackle multiple tasks simultaneously in order to keep the construction process moving forward and ensure the home is completed on schedule.
Builders must wear many hats in order to deliver a home where the new owners can hang their own hats, raise a family and build lifelong memories. Builders take pride in the final outcome of their work. We are honored to not only build your dream home, but to build a community we can all be proud of.
