Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Hawaii
H-1 Construction, LLC
Home Builders in Hawaii
"Luke Stensland (H1 Construction) & Ryan Fujita (Fujita & Netski Architecture) commenced planning and construction of a total remodel of my 2 bedroom Yacht Harbor Towers condo in February 2014. After initial discussions of the design concept, Ryan drew detailed drawings of the project suitable for town planning approval while Luke applied for the necessary permits and go ahead from Yacht Harbor Towers HOA. Luke was able to work with the challenges of dealing with the HOA and of a project in a down town high rise. The remodel included complete re-wiring, re- plumbing, hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry and painting throughout. In addition all new appliances were installed. As I live in Southern California, trust and communication were particularly important during the project. As with any large project unexpected situations arise and Luke put forward ideas to achieve the best final result. There were many decisions to be made during the construction and decorating fazes and Ryan was invaluable in keeping design consistency. The final results of the extensive custom cabinetry and feature tile work exceeded my expectations and gave the condo the “wow" factor I was looking for. Finding the right team and good fit can be challenging in Hawaii, Luke and Ryan are a young professional team who work well together and made the project an enjoyable experience. I would definitely work with them again."

Atlas Construction
Home Builders in Hawaii
"I know how stressful it is finding and contractor, so I wanted to share my experience with others so that they can make a more informed decision. When we decided to tear down and rebuild our home in Kaimuki, we met with five contractors. All of them had great ideas but each were different in their approach – some more pushy, a few seemed too busy or apathetic, and only one was real down to earth and made us feel like they had our best interest at heart – Atlas. For example, the Project Manager (Nathan) was very concerned about keeping us within our budget so that our mortgage payments would be manageable as opposed to building a house that would maximize the contract price (it seemed that way with some of the other contractors). What also really impressed us were all the complimentary comments that were made by their clients during our site visit to other projects that were in progress or competed. Their vendors and subs thought very highly of them too! They accommodated every request we had, allowed us to build the home we wanted (not according to their specifications), and were transparent about the process, costs (no mysterious change orders or nickel and diming), and timeline. They treated our Project as if it were their own and provided us recommendations during the design AND BUILD process. To those looking for someone to build their dream home, my recommendation would be the same: Find someone you feel comfortable with because there are so many decisions to be made from beginning to end and you want a partner that you can trust that will help guide you and also be fair with you when the inevitable obstacles occur (which it will). We love the home they built for us two years ago and are glad we picked a contractor that was a pleasure to work with. Atlas built our home and a lasting relationship with my family as well. To this day, if I ever need any assistance or advice for my home (solar, new fence, leaking washer), I can pick-up the phone and call Bruce (the owner) and he sends someone right away to kokua."

Todd Boyd Homes
Home Builders in Hawaii
"Todd Boyd did a marvelous refresh/remodel of our unit at Wailea Point. The complex was built in the nineteen eighties and this particular unit hadn't had much done to it since. As a result unexpected problems kept revealing themselves. Plus, it all had to be handled distance as my husband and I were in California while the work was being done. Todd handled it all with aplomb and good humor. The job was finished on time and on budget and we are delighted with the results. We plan to do more significant work on the unit in the future and wouldn't consider hiring anybody else!"

Dean Bowman Construction Inc
Home Builders in Hawaii
"We hired Dean Bowman to replace windows, doors and lay down new stone flooring in our house. He is very organized and structures the work to be as efficient as possible. His crew are craftsmen who pay attention to detail; if Dean doesn't like the quality of their work he corrects them to make sure it meets his standards. He responded quickly to a few problems that surfaced during the job. He is a clear and straight-forward communicator, and very down-to-earth. The billing system he uses is very transparent and easy to track. Even though the majority of his projects are building new very high-end homes on the Big Island, he took our small job and executed it with the same high quality of workmanship as his bigger jobs. We are extremely happy with his work and will continue to work with him as our home improvement projects develop."

R Clary Builders Inc.
Home Builders in Hawaii
"We completed a full home renovation in 2014. Our experience with R Clary Builders was incredible from beginning to end. There was no "wish" too small or too large. We were accommodated throughout the process and our final product was WONDERFUL. I recommend R Clary Builders to anyone considering a renovation."

Pu'uwai Design & Construction
Home Builders in Hawaii
"Unlike most of people that live on the mainland that built a home in Kauai, we do not have any horror stories to share. I believe that’s because we had an open dialog with Puuwai Construction. The building of our home was a seamless process that kept everyone in the loop and there was never a surprise. With that said, we highly recommend Puu’wai as probably the best construction company on the island of Kauai. Mahalo, ~Holt & Margo Cloward"

Mali Bella Company, LLC
Home Builders in Hawaii
"Mali Bella competed our lanai addition. They did full service permits and build out using Trex and wood rails. We also added a hot tub and needed to properly engineer the weight load. They not only managed the whole project, but made suggestions to improve the design for a better end-use. The pricing was right on target with other bids, but because Joe Megill was able to make creative suggestions to make the end-use better, I feel like we really got our money's worth. I would add that our timeline was pushed back, but in this market it's tough to have projects come in right on time. As a Realtor, I've also recommended Mali Bella to my clients. Mali Bella adds the creative touch to help you achieve what you want. Hire them if you can, it will be worth it."

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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii 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 Hawaii:

  • 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?
