Interviewing and choosing a builder can be a pretty daunting process, especially when the market is so saturated with builders. We have been building homes in San Antonio since 2002, so we have really refined our process to bring optimal quality and beautiful designs to every single one of our client’s homes. So to help make this process a little easier for you and to narrow down a builder, please read on to see the top 5 reasons OUR CLIENTS say you should chose CKC to build your dream home.
TOP 5 REASONS TO BUILD WITH CKC CUSTOM HOMES
1 BUDGETS vs. ALLOWANCES
In the world of building it is very common to be given allowances for your selection items. Meaning when you sign a contract with a builder you are given a set number for your appliances, lighting, flooring, and ect before you have even had a chance to pick these items out. The issues that arises with this process is during construction when you go to pick out your selections, that $15,000.00 appliance allowance might not be enough to cover the actual cost and you will have to pay the difference out of pocket. We have changed the process entirely by using actual budgets in place of allowances. The CKC interior designers will physically pick out all selection items with you up front, before signing a contract, and create an accurate budget for all items down to the very last cent. Saving you from that out of pocket expense down the road and create full transparency throughout the entire build and design process.
2. ONE STOP SHOP
We have created a “one stop shop” for our clients. We can assist in finding lots to build on, setting up the financing for your construction loan, designing the construction plans, gathering selections, and interior decorating for when you move in. Choosing to build in the first place can be a hard decision to make because of all the “work” and pieces involved, so we have really made it as easy as possible for our clients by handling everything for them.
We keep the line of communication open with our clients, giving them access to us for whenever they have questions. Another way we show transparency as a company is through our pricing. We are very open and up front about what we charge and what are vendors are charging us. We like to say when signing with a builder, it’s like being married, you have to have great communication and transparency to make the relationship work. This is something we fully understand and deliver to all of our clients.
4. OWNER CONTROLLED QUALITY
Quality control is number one to us, and what better way to ensure it than having the owner managing all jobs. The owner and builder of CKC Custom Homes, Chuck Powell, is the only superintendent in the company and personally manages every single one of our job sites. His wife, Kristal Powell, is the head interior designer and helps bring the client’s visions to life for their homes through the design and selection process.
5. FULL TEAM BEHIND YOUR HOME
We have a full staff of seven here at CKC Custom Homes. So you will have three interior designers, a superintendent, purchaser, assistant project manager, and client relations manager working diligently on your project daily to insure quality and timeliness of the project.
We hope this has helped you in your decision making process on choosing a custom builder. If you would like more information on building with CKC, please give us a call today at 210-408-7613 or fill out our contact form.
