How The New Construction Process Works

Steps to Building Your New Construction Home

Watching a new construction home take shape is a rewarding experience for any homeowner. From the first dig of the foundation to the last coat of paint, it’s definitely something you’ll never forget.

At Maronda Homes, we take pride in the way we build our homes, and we want to share our enthusiasm and expertise with you. Not only do we build the components of your home in the most efficient and effective way possible, but we’ll help you understand every piece that goes into your home – so you can know it inside and out. Our construction process consists of:

Slab on Grade or Foundation – The key to any home is a solid foundation. In homes with basements, we’ll pour concrete or construct masonry walls and install energy saving insulation and a moisture prevention system consisting of waterproofing and a drainage system. Our foundation will provide excellent structural support for your home.

Framing – Your home will take shape from the bottom floor panels and walls all the way up to the roof frame. Once framed, we’ll install roof shingles, exterior doors and windows, and begin constructing your garage.

Rough Mechanicals – Once your new construction home is framed, all the rough mechanicals like the HVAC heating and cooling ducts will be installed. Then, the plumbing lines are put in and the wiring for electrical outlets, smoke detectors, and telephone and cable lines are added. This phase covers anything in the walls or floors that are covered later by drywall.

Insulation and Drywall – After the inspection of your home’s rough mechanicals, your insulation will be added. The production supervisor will then conduct a pre-drywall walk to ensure the customer selections are in place.

Final Details – Your home will then be fitted with trim and exterior finishes followed by the shaping of your yard and the finishing of your mechanicals, which includes your new toilets, sinks and faucets, cabinets and countertops, floor registers, light switches and fixtures, and outlet plugs.

Pre-Settlement Walkthrough – Once your new construction home has received a Certificate of Occupancy and the final details are in place, your Production Supervisor will educate you about every aspect of your home with a one to two-hour walkthrough. During this orientation, we’ll teach you about the operation of your home. About a week later at your follow-up meeting, you can sign off on your new home!

Closing – Congratulations! You’re now a proud owner of a brand new Maronda Home! Once you get the keys, you can open the door to your brand new lifestyle.
