Steps to Building Your New Construction Home
From the first beam of the foundation to the last shingle, building a home is definitely something you’ll never forget. Navigating the real estate market of today can seem like a big undertaking. Still, buyers are discovering why installing brand new can save them time, money, and headaches with limited resale and low inventory.
New construction offers some significant advantages as opposed to house hunting on the market. Buyers today are a dime a dozen, but you’re avoiding the competition when you build a new home. Swarms of buyers are vying for the few houses they see listed on the big home internet websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, or Redfin. That’s why new home construction is a game-changer because you can’t lose a home that hasn’t been built yet! A newly built home is yours, and only yours!
At Maronda Homes, we take pride in building our homes, and we want to share our enthusiasm and expertise with you. Not only do we make the components of your home most efficiently and effectively possible, but we’ll help you understand every item that goes into your home. You will know your home inside and out.
Our construction process consists of:
The starting point of any house is a solid foundation. In homes designs or floorplans that offer basements, we pour concrete and install energy-saving insulation, a moisture prevention system, and a drainage system. With a solid foundation, we will provide excellent structural support for your home.
Framing Takes Shape
Your home will take shape from the bottom floor panels and walls up to the roof frame. Once framed, we’ll install roof shingles, exterior doors, and windows, and begin constructing your garage.
All the rough mechanicals such as the HVAC heating and cooling ducts will be installed once your new construction home is framed. Then comes the plumbing lines; the wiring for electrical outlets, smoke detectors, telephone, and cable lines are added. Anything that is put into the walls or floors covered later by drywall will get added in at this stage.
Drywall and Insulation
After the review of your home’s rough mechanicals, it is time to add insulation. The production supervisor will then hold a pre-drywall walk to ensure the selections that you, the customer, have made are in place.
The Finishing Touches
Trim and exterior finishes come next, followed by the shaping of your yard and finishing your mechanicals, including your new toilets, sinks and faucets, cabinets and countertops, floor registers, light switches and fixtures, and outlet plugs.
What is a Walkthrough
The Certificate of Occupancy is the next important step. Once it is received and the final details are in place, a Maronda Homes Production Supervisor will run you through every aspect of your home with a one to a two-hour walkthrough going over every inch of your home. Throughout this walkthrough, we’ll tour you through all the features of your home. In roughly one week, you will be ready to go to your follow-up meeting to sign off on your new home!
Closing on a new home can seem like a big task, and it is a significant financial undertaking, but our staff and team are ready and able to help you cross the line when it comes to closing on your home.
