Builders are always talking about “quality,” but few can explain exactly what this term means to their new-home clients. This should not be a mystery—construction quality is easy to see when you know what to look for. As a professional builder, John Kaltenbach Homes not only takes pride in creating high-quality homes, but also makes sure that our customers experience quality and understand the difference it makes.
John Kaltenbach Homes understands the building process might be foreign to those outside of the industry. The best way to help our clients understand the construction process, and appreciate the value of the high-quality materials and methods we employ is by scheduling visits to the job site at key milestones. For example, scheduling a walk-through in your newly framed home allows us to point out the high standards we require from our framing crews. On-site, we can show examples of exceptional work and explain how setting the bar high ensures reliable performance and comfort in your finished home.
After the framing phase of construction is complete, our customers can watch the ways that we install wiring, plumbing, and mechanical systems. Our exacting specifications make sure that those systems perform as designed and promised. As construction continues, we encourage new homeowners to schedule similar walk-throughs so we can showcase the high-caliber materials and methods we use to build homes. What is difficult to articulate in the office becomes clearly demonstrated as the house takes shape.
We also consider the conditions of our job sites as an indicator of quality. We expect, for instance, that our crews and trade partners maintain a clean site. Disposing of trash and scrap materials not only makes for a professional work environment, but also a safe one. We believe that our insistence on a professional looking job site translates into professional, superior-quality workmanship.
As a new home nears completion, quality is even easier to see and understand from a homebuyer’s point of view. Again, since John Kaltenbach Homes sets the bar high for construction, we pay attention to detail and work hard to make sure that walls are smooth; and that cabinets, trim, and other fixtures fit snugly into place. We make certain that windows and doors operate smoothly, and that flooring and other finishes are installed to meet the expectations of our discerning clientele.
Finally, the true test of quality construction comes with occupancy. Our customers understand exactly what we mean by quality home construction, especially after they have lived in their home for a while. The way our homes stand the test of time and the rigor of everyday living is a testament to the quality we strive to achieve from the foundation to the rooftop.
