Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Birmingham
Signature Homes
Home Builders in Birmingham
"I have used this company twice for the building of 2 residents. I have built 3 times prior and they are hands above making the experience enjoyable, professional with great attention to your worries and handling any issues. Great subs and organized outfit."

Bluestone Building, LLC
Home Builders in Birmingham
"1500 Sq. Foot remodel of our home in 2008. Bluestone was great to work with and did an amazing job. They were able to keep us on budget and finish the job in a timely and on-schedule manner. I always recommend Bluestone to friends who are looking for reliable builders."

Scotch Homes & Land Development
Home Builders in Birmingham
"I contacted Scotch Homes when I wanted to build a large home and barn on my land. I had heard nightmares about working with contractors but this was a fantastic experience. Wayne Scotch met me on the land and worked very hard to build exactly the home I wanted. He worked straight through until it was finished and finished within my budget. The home is beautiful and Scotch Homes did an excellent job."
- JoAnne Headrick
Curtis White Companies
Home Builders in Birmingham
"I contracted Curtis White Companies to build a home plan that I had found on the internet. Joe and Katie were very easy to work with -- they explained everything that had to be done and gave realistic expectations of how the process would work. Once construction began, they were very good keeping me updated on progress and aware of what steps needed to be taken. They were always good about hitting specific target dates (despite a very rainy summer to work in) and kept me in the know on the things I needed to have to them. In the end, the final product is the home I was hoping for and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend Joe and Katie to anyone looking to build a house."
- Earl Roberts
Taylor Burton Company Inc
Home Builders in Birmingham
"This has been the 3rd renovation project I have contracted through Taylor Burton Construction and as expected the experience was fantastic. Taylor and his business parter Blake were always engaged in every aspect of the project. This renovation required an expertise that I would not have entrusted to any other firm. Taylor Burton grew up building homes with his father and is unmatched in his construction knowledge in the state of Alabama. The project was painstakingly reviewed to keep the addition from looking like an addition and I can say it was a success. If you are in the market for a high quality renovation contractor in the Mountain Brook or Vestavia area then Taylor Burton Construction is the company to use."
- Mitch Davitte
Harmony Custom Homes & Additions, Inc.
Home Builders in Birmingham
"During the month of August 2012, I contacted Harmony Remodeling, Inc. for an estimate/consultation to do some renovations on our property primarily on the outside of my house. We needed repairs to a basement leaking every time it rained. The following projects were completed to my satisfaction: replace french drain in crawlspace, re-grade front yard, build rock retaining wall, tie in and re-route downspouts, remove and replace lower section of driveway, replace garage doors, remove gutters and replace with larger gutters, and waterproof entire basement wall. I was very pleased with the respectful workers and the outstanding workmanship."
- Dori Cantley
Building Concepts LLC
Home Builders in Birmingham
"I used them for a very small job because of my budget and was treated just like I was spending a million dollars. Very professional, on time, and conscientious of the quality of work done. Electrical and hanging light fixtures, but they do it all."
- Mandy Roberts
Michael Jacobson Real Estate and Construction
Home Builders in Birmingham
"Michael Jacobson helped me with a complicated set of problems when I purchased an older home. To move in to a livable dwelling, a lot was required to get the very old wet basement into good shape, as well as significant upgrades and repairs to existing plumbing and air systems. This involved a variety of workers across several trades, skills, and professions including masonry, landscaping, plumbing, and heating/air. Michael knew all the right people to do good work for affordable prices. He followed up when necessary on a long list of tasks. I recommend Michael as a contractor for tough jobs involving many different elements and a tight budget."

I have full confidence in his integrity, expertise, and experience."
- The Lawn Butler
BRBC LLC / Bradford Residential Building, LLC
Home Builders in Birmingham
"David, Chris and Craig did an exceptional job building a house that my family will enjoy for a very long time. Their craftsmanship was second to none, they were very professional and took pride in the jobsite as well as making sure their subs completed work that satisfied BRBC's very high standard of craftsmanship. If I ever built again in the future they would be the only builder I would call."

What do new home builders do?

For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Birmingham market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Birmingham has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Birmingham also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Birmingham:

  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
