The Judd Builders Difference
Our Custom Home Building Process
Buildertrend, our cloud-based construction app, brings the building process and scheduling together in one powerful system.
Effective communication with your builder is extremely important during home building and remodeling. We use a comprehensive cloud system called Buildertrend that brings the entire building process into one mobile app designed for maximum communication and collaboration. We provide our clients with a customized login where they can view their new home’s progress and communicate with us. Buildertrend keeps everyone on the same page and it keeps projects moving.
- Project photos and videos
- Daily logs
- Ability to make selections
- Document storage
Designing your new home is an interactive process where your input and involvement is highly encouraged. Collaboration with designers, architects, and the client is crucial during the design phase of the project. We guide you through this important step in the project and make sure you understand how everyone’s work will come together.
We’ve established relationships with a number of experienced architects who can assist you in the design of your future dream home. We also have clients find us after they’ve selected a plan to customize, or have already found an architect. Either way, our decades of home building experience brings creative ideas you may not have considered.
Buildertrend allows for collaboration and communication within the app which makes giving input easy. We work with you to make certain all of your needs and desires are a part of the final plan and become a reality.
The ability to communicate well with your home builder is vital to the success of any project. Establishing a strong foundation for open communication is of utmost importance to us. Our co-owners John Judd Sr. and John Judd Jr. have always had a hands-on approach to project management. Both are heavily involved in every phase of the construction process in order to ensure your complete satisfaction from start to finish. They make themselves available to answer all of your questions during the project.
During the introductory discussion, our goals are to get to know you and gain a good understanding of your needs and desires. We want to ensure that your custom home or remodel is a direct reflection of your style. Our team will keep the lines of communication open with you during the building process and continue to ask for your input.
It’s necessary to establish a relationship of mutual trust and understanding prior to building your home. We believe in 100% transparency when it comes to cost and budget considerations. We understand that your custom home may be the largest investment you’ll make and we find that being direct about expectations from the beginning serves the client and builder well.
Once your design is finalized, we provide detailed pricing based on your stated specifications. Our contract provides a detailed description of every aspect of your home’s construction and mutually agreed upon specifications.
Buildertrend gives our clients the ability to view documents and timelines from a desktop or mobile phone.
