Defining Quality in New Home Construction

Every builder must adhere to the same rigid building codes, but the goal of building codes is to ensure the health and safety of the people who will actually live in the home once it is completed. They are not designed to define or evaluate quality.

While our homes meet, and often exceed, these codes, they must also meet our standards of quality, and more importantly, yours.  Our quality program has three components:

QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION means that the finished product reflects precision and accuracy in all the details, from the ones you don’t see to the ones you do see. It is evidence that craftsmanship and pride are valued more than expediency. Though labor and materials cost every builder approximately the same, there are many methods of construction and choices of materials. We simply won’t cut corners today that will compromise your comfort tomorrow.

Quality of construction begins with careful management of the job.  You'll often see Alex making the rounds to each home and overseeing the work.  With a very hands-on approach, he carefully monitors each phase of construction before going on the next.  

QUALITY OF MATERIALS means that all the components in your home have proven their reliability. We use only brands made by leading manufacturers which stand behind their products. 

QUALITY OF YOUR BUILDING EXPERIENCE is perhaps the most important component. While building a new home is a complicated process, we work hard to make it an easy and rewarding experience for you. We do this by listening and responding quickly to your questions and your needs.
