Our residential construction experience in Ames and Central Iowa for new home construction has ranged from entry-level starter homes to large, custom single-family homes; from smaller townhomes to multi-family or multi-generational homes. We have remodeled sunrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, finished off neglected basements, completed family room and deck additions, and provided general repairs and maintenance to our clients’ homes. Whatever the case may be, we are here to serve you. Our team is ready to help you every step of the way to give you your dream home.
Our first order of business is to listen attentively to the vision you have for your new home or remodel project. We never assume to know what you want or what your goals are. It’s only after we capture and fully comprehend your vision that we can roll up our sleeves and start on a solution!
Responsiveness is refreshing! We want you to feel heard and see your desires demonstrated with an efficient floor plan and creative exterior elevation. This is when it starts to get exciting! You’ll see firsthand that we get energized by the process of designing your home or remodel project.
Delivering results is what matters most in the building or remodeling process. Fulfilling your dreams and desires is the bottom line. While an excellent end product is critical, we care more about your experience getting there. The home building process should be fun and rewarding, regardless of the project type or scope!
Building a new home is a big undertaking and can be overwhelming. However, we work hard to ease the complex process by breaking it down into specific steps for you to be aware of and understand. When you focus on one step at a time, the building process not only becomes manageable, it becomes fun and rewarding. The six steps outlined below capture the process we take at Integrity Construction in residential building or remodeling. It all starts with an introduction meeting. We encourage you to contact us and schedule a time to start the conversation and learn more about our team and our building process to make sure we are a good fit for you.
Meet with our team to help us capture your vision and goals for a new home or remodel project. We focus on listening! You come with all of your thoughts, desires and preferences, then we take those and turn them into a Preliminary Design.
Based on what we’ve heard and learned from you in our introduction meeting, we’ll prepare floor plans that demonstrate a preliminary solution and share it with you. Concepts for the exterior shape and preferred style for your home will also be discussed.
During this step, more details and refinements for the floor plans are developed along with the house exterior design and site layout. We also prepare “outline specifications” that describe the building materials and finishes in greater detail.
The detailed construction drawings and specifications are completed during this step. We gather competitive bids from our subcontractors and suppliers and present a detailed construction proposal with firm pricing. You’ll never be blindsided by an increased final price.
This is when the fun begins. During the construction phase, we meet with you regularly and guide you through the material and color selection process. We take it one step at a time so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
After the final cleaning is finished, we’ll review every aspect of your home together to answer any questions and cover home maintenance and warranty information. All that’s left is to move in!
