Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Would you comply with my project within building laws?
Maine Home Builders is licensed, insured, and bonded with all the cities we work in. Our contractors and subcontractors have liability insurance certificates and the construction supply vendors we work with. We make sure to present permits and get our construction inspected as required by various municipalities.
What to expect during a building project?
First, you can contact us to discuss your project ideas to form a detailed construction production schedule and a contact list. Our team of contractors would determine your project goals and address the concerns regarding the project. This will also include forming a detailed pricing quote so we learn where your budget is fixed. After beginning the construction, we will update you on all the construction steps.
From where the building resources would come for my project?
With so many years of experience in the building contracting industry, Maine Home Builders have formed a reliable relationship with various building resource manufacturers and businesses. We strive to offer you quality as per your project requirement while meeting your budget, so we use local resources as possible.
Do you have standard home plan features?
We can avail you of some standard home plan features on our website; you would want to explore that may be completed within a fixed pricing quote. However, as we specialize in the custom home building process, we can avail you of service flexibility accordingly.
How long would it take to finish my building project?
This does not have a defined answer as there are different variables that affect a building's construction timeline, such as material, labor availability, weather change, etc. But the average timeline can take about eight to ten months for standard home designs.
Do I need to hire other professionals for building plan designing?
The general answer to that can be no, as we can build your home with just your intervention and custom requirements. But if your building project requires any plan designing aspect or any architectural assistance, we can connect you with our skillful and talented third-party plan designers and architects for a successful project.
Do I need to sign a pre-construction service agreement?
At Maine Home Builders, you can expect to sign a pre-construction service agreement which is an essential document to offer you a detailed architectural plan, a structural plan developed by a licensed engineer, and other specifications of the project to complete it within a pre-determined desired budget goal.
Who would I contact during my building construction process?
Maine Home Builders makes a team approach to constructing a customized home. You would get to interact with various team members at any stage of your project. But after beginning the construction phase, your major point of contact would be our project managers, who are extremely skilled and experienced.
Does your business provide free estimates, change orders, and revisions?
We may offer you the first project estimation quote for free along with the first. But additional changes in orders and revisions might charge you extra fees.
Do you offer any financing assistance?
