Do you have a custom home that you would like built on a new or existing property? Quality Craftsmen can manage your new home construction project from blue print through completion. For homeowners contemplating remodeling their existing home or building a new home, the planning period can be very exciting. However, there are a number of details and decisions involved in the building process that can sometimes go overlooked. Here are a couple things to think about when talking to your contractor as you start your construction project:
- Heating and Cooling - Programmable thermostats that allow the homeowner to program time and temperature for automatic operation can save up to 30% during a typical setback period. If you’re building a home with three levels, you will also want to consider two separate heating and cooling systems.
- Electrical - All homes built by our contractors are wired to code requirements. This means that plugs are installed so many feet apart and so forth. If you have specific electrical needs or locations, let us know during the planning period so we can be sure to add those to the floorplan. Choosing the right finish fixtures in each room is also a detail that your contractor can address.
- Plumbing – In addition to electrical, all plumbing will be done under the code requirements. Installing a tankless hot water system will save you money over time, as well as ensuring you never run out of hot water. You should also have at least 2 hose bibs for exterior water use, located in diagonal corners of the home.
- Windows – When building a home from scratch, choosing EnergyStar efficient windows such as Simonton Windows is a great choice. Your windows will help save energy and reduce heating and cooling costs for your home. Our contractors have over twenty-five years of experience as Atlanta’s window replacement specialists.
Whatever the project you’re looking to build, an experienced contractor can give you the best final result. Contact Quality Craftsmen to ensure your dream project can be seen through fruition so you can enjoy your home for many years to come.
