Deciding to build a custom home from the ground up is a big decision, and ensuring you’ve chosen the right custom builder is an even bigger decision. With so many different things to think about when choosing a custom builder in Birmingham, it can be hard to know what to look for. At J. Wright Building Company, we know what kind of questions you should be asking to ensure your custom homebuilding experience goes smoothly.

One of the biggest challenges you will face when building a custom home is the budget! Deciding your budget is the easy part but sticking to it can be hard. Often, builders give you a fixed price portion plus an additional allowance at the beginning of the process. After the contract is set and building starts, the allowance can quickly run out and the project becomes overbudget. At J. Wright, we do a budget proposal first, then a final estimate, and then go to contract. Everything is pre-selected before our clients sign anything. This way, the price doesn’t change unexpectedly. We want to make sure you are confident in the decisions before we start building to ensure your future dream home is everything you want and more.

A third consideration when you’re choosing your custom builder is quality. You can rest assured you will get at J. Wright Building Company is quality craftsmanship. What other builders consider upgrades is often standard for us. We always make sure to use the best quality Sherwin-Williams paint, we use foam insulation and we install state-of-the-art energy-efficient features. We partner with the best tradesmen in the business and guarantee our homes are built to the most stringent construction standards, ensuring your home is built to the highest quality available!

At J. Wright Building Company, we aren’t like other builders. We focus on how to make the custom homebuilding process as easy and effective as possible for our clients.
