Your Choice for New Home Construction
As a design/building firm we can provide you, our customer, with all the services you expect and need. From locating a desirable lot and establishing the perfect house design to moving in furniture and final interior decorating, Galarneau Builders supports all aspects of new home construction for the residents of Saratoga Springs.
Galarneau Builders can construct your new home on your lot or we can assist you in acquiring a lot. Through our company’s Maple Avenue Realty and our in-house broker, we have access to every lot as well as expanses of potential estate acreage included in the region’s Multiple Listing Service.
For the design of your home, there are several options. If you already have architectural plans, our team can use those to build from. Additionally, we can draw from one of hundreds of plans within our design portfolio. Lastly, we can professionally create a special custom design just for you. If you would like to see how we have designed homes in the past, look through our portfolio to see the exteriors, interiors and outdoor additions we have successfully implemented!
The process begins when we meet to determine your needs and wishes. Possible sites are discussed and interaction over a period of time results in design drawings that can be carried out within your stated budget. We then develop a cost estimate based on a full “material and labor take-off” based on the drawings. The drawings are sent to many of our subcontractors and suppliers to get current, firm pricing.
Once the cost estimate for your new home construction is complete, we assemble a detailed proposal that fully describes the scope of work and materials that will be used in your new home construction. Thus, no unwanted surprises!
Once construction begins you can expect to have continued close personal interaction with us through and beyond the completion of your project. Early on, after we have reached a contractual agreement, you will be guided in making your “selections.” You will be provided with a list of our suppliers so you can choose everything from flooring to ceiling fixtures, from cabinetry to plumbing fixtures, from tile to paint colors. But, as a totally custom home builder, we do not lock you into any one supplier. If you want it and it can be located, we will acquire it!
Unlike some builders, we encourage regular guided site visits. If you have questions we want to answer them promptly. If you see something that you wish changed, we will strive to ensure that you get exactly what you want.
