Houston custom home builder looks over plans with client in front of new construction home

What to Look for in a Houston Home Builder

Building your own home is an exciting process, but it can also be overwhelming, especially if you’re working with the wrong builder. The best way to ensure a smooth and streamlined project, whether it’s a Houston new construction home or Houston build on your lot home, is to find a reputable builder who will execute your project to your standards, on time, and on budget. We’ve outlined the most important traits to look for in a Houston custom homebuilder.

Factors to Consider When Selecting a Houston Home Builder

Customer Reviews

When a quality Houston homebuilder executes a project, homeowners are eager to share their experience with others in the form of online reviews and word-of-mouth opinions. Do a quick search of Houston home builders that seem like a good fit for your project and research their online reviews, looking for patterns of their business practices and considering the following:

  • Are they easy to reach? 
  • Are they quick to respond? 
  • Do they complete their projects on time and under budget? 
  • Are they trustworthy?
  • Are customers pleased with the results?

Another way to research Houston custom home builders’ reputations is to drive through a neighborhood that features a few of their previous projects on a weekend afternoon when many homeowners are outside. Not only does this give you the opportunity to see their work in person, but also a possible chance to speak to the homeowners and survey their opinions on their experience with the home builder in question. This tactic is especially helpful in receiving honest, immediate feedback, as opposed to online reviews, which some disreputable builders pay others to write. 

Quality of Craftsmanship

Your house is your sanctuary, and when building a Houston new construction home, you expect this sanctuary to be built to last with quality materials. Our Houston home builder stands behind the work we do, which is why we offer our clients a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty, which is the industry’s leading structural warranty provider. This insurance-backed structural warranty provides 10 years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components, 2 full years of distribution systems coverage (electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, and HVAC ductwork), and 1 full year of coverage against workmanship and materials defects. Thanks to 25+ years of experience, LEVELTX takes our craftsmanship to the next level in terms of quality, beauty, and precision.

Ability to Stay on Budget

Houston new construction homes have jumped in price the past decade due to a number of factors. Soaring materials costs and a sharp increase in area property values have led to tighter budgets, which is something we take seriously. We want you to enjoy your finished Houston new construction home without the stress of higher payments on finishes you can’t afford. Not only do we claim $30 million in managed client budgets, but we search tirelessly for quality materials that meet your taste, lifestyle, and budget. We advise our clients on ways to trim costs on unnecessary finishes and would never upsell a component you don’t need or can’t afford.
