CMM Custom Homes
Home Builders in New York
"My husband and I had very high expectations when we went searching for a home builder. We knew that finding the very best company would entail equal doses of technical prowess and empathy. We found both at CMM Construction in Avon-by-the-Sea, NJ. After evaluating the quality and beauty of their work, we challenged them to bring our new home to a breathtaking status. They understood exactly what we meant and never let us down as we advanced our project. They have made this often frustrating journey for many people taking on this task such a pleasant and memorable one for us. And yes, people passing by never fail to stop us to talk about its WOW factor. We couldn"t have asked for more."

Debcan Construction
Home Builders in New York
"When I first visited the incredible homes built by Debcan Construction, I could see that excellence and knowledge of first class, state-of-the art new home construction was evident in every phase of their building process. As an interior designer, I admire what they bring to the table for their clients. The finishing touches, both exterior and interior, including the most beautiful moldings, ceiling treatments, and floorplan layouts are truly awe inspiring and I cannot wait to see the next home they will build for their very lucky clients!"

Topilow Development
Home Builders in New York
"Evan is an absolute pleasure to work with. He takes great pride in his job and is completely committed from onset to finish. The end result is a true reflection of his passion for the craft. He makes sure he uses the best teams for the allocated job, and has keen sense of how to manage and coordinate all sides, seamlessly. He listened, put up with my endless requests and suggestions, worked attentively and methodically, gave us a basement that we will cherish for a long time to come. He made it appear like our basement was the only project he was working on, (which certainly wasn't the case)- always there and always ready. Of course we'll use his services again, its a no-brainer!"

Prestige Custom Building & Construction, Inc.
Home Builders in New York
"'As an interior designer with over 20 years of experience doing many multi-million dollar construction and renovation projects, I hired Prestige Custom Building & Construction, Inc. a few years ago to renovate my 1,900 square-foot loft in Long Island City. I had a very positive experience working with Lior, the president of the company. Comparing to other construction companies that I have dealt with in the past, I would put Prestige in the top rank. These are the observations from my experience working with Prestige that sets them above and beyond: • They were very resourceful and helpful during the entire project. Lior spoke his mind, shared ideas from his past experience and made valuable suggestions • They were reliable and dependable by making sure that the workers were on site as scheduled and cleaned up before they left each day • They were very fair and flexible when change orders were required • They were very client oriented as they listened and went out of their way to accommodate my needs • They took pride in their workmanship and did whatever it took to make it look perfect Trini Lam trinidesign.com"

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 New York 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 New York 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 New York 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 New York:


  • 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?
