Have questions about building or remodeling a house? We have answers!
How much does it cost to build a house? This is the most commonly asked question that we receive, and the honest answer is, “It depends.” Every house is custom, and the price depends on the selections that are made by the customer. Think of buying a car. What you spend depends on what you choose. You could buy a factory grade compact car or buy a high-end luxury sports car. The cost difference between these two cars is wide. With that being said, Elston Construction Co. regularly builds custom homes for $115-$130 per square foot under roof.
How long does it take to build a house? Most houses take 7-9 months to build. This may be longer or shorter depending on customer selections, weather conditions, material availability, and skilled labor availability.
Why do I need a Contractor / Builder? Chances are that you probably know someone that has “been their own Contractor.” Hey, we get it. Sometimes this is the only way for a family to build their home, but it is also a risky venture. Building a home takes an extensive body of knowledge and expertise. One oversight or mistake could cost you more than you saved by not hiring a builder. Not to mention, building a house is a full-time job that most people simply do not have the time or energy for. At Elston Construction Co. we work with you to design your home and make sure that every detail is covered. Once the design is finalized, we ensure that all the permits and site work are completed. Then we diligently manage your build by ensuring that all work is scheduled in a timely manner and all materials are ordered and available. Throughout the entire build, we work closely with our homeowners to make sure they are included in the building process, and we stay in frequent communication with them.
Do I need to get house plans before I meet with a builder? If you already have plans for a house, this is great, but it is not required. At Elston Construction Co., we offer in-house design services and also work closely with other local architects to design the perfect home for your family.
How much does it cost to get a quote for a house? A quote for a home project is very detailed (many numbers and spreadsheets!), and it takes hours of skilled, expertise work. A home build or remodel quote costs $250-$500 depending on the size and scope of the project.
Does Elston Construction Co. only build new houses? No, at Elston Construction Co. we build new houses, pools, and remodel existing homes. We also do light commercial work and some repair work.
