E2 Homes
Home Builders in Orlando
"Rob at E2 Homes was the project manager on my total renovation, and I remembered the excellent attention to detail he brought to every aspect of the project. When I was ready to add on, there wasn't any question who I wanted to handle the new work. My expectations weren't just met they were exceeded. From options to materials, choices and tradeoffs, we discussed and collaborated. This is someone I trust and who repeatedly proves their value. I would and do recommend E2 Homes and Rob to people I care about. I was so pleased I contracted E2 Homes and Rob for a kitchen renovation for a family member. I could not be happier with the results."

Element Home Builders
Home Builders in Orlando
"I have know Carl Jacobs for many years. I contracted with him in early 2000 to build me a wonderful two story country style home. It was and is the envy of the neighborhood. Carl is a true professional and really knows his trade. Any problem I had before the construction was complete or even after it was complete he was there to work the issue. I am 100% satisfied with the work he did for me and I would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone building a new home or having their home remodeled. I know you will be totally satisfied with the finished product."

Silliman CitySide Homes
Home Builders in Orlando
"Our positive experience with Silliman Homes was beyond our expectations! We are grateful for the strong customer service provided every step of the way. The team in place was incredibly professional. They articulated timelines, managed our expectations, and guided us through the process as we built our first home. When we would visit to check on the progress, the team-lead or subcontractor would greet us with updates. I felt my questions were handled in a timely manner. The attention to detail brought us the confidence in quality work provided by the Silliman Homes team. Bill Silliman says he 'doesn't build houses, he builds homes. Home is where your day begins and ends and where families grow.' Thank you to the Silliman Team for building the 'home' of our dreams and exceeding all expectations!"

Fortis Enterprises, LLC
Home Builders in Orlando
"Ed Valley and his team at Fortis Enterprise did an amazing job for our family. This was our first experience in building a custom home and quite honestly we did not know what to expect. We could not have been happier with our experience with Fortis. Everything was on time, in budget, and no surprises what so ever. The price point was fair and they deliver a great product. They worked with us from start to finish and Ed was always available day or night if we had questions or needed anything. I have already referred Ed to several friends and I would highly recommend Fortis Enterprise to anyone considering building a custom home."

Tolaris Homes
Home Builders in Orlando
"Tolaris Homes built our custom home on a lot that we owned. Rick Bavec (president) personally acted as superintendent. Through conception, design and construction he was always accommodating and fair in his dealings with us and with his fine group of subcontractors. Our project was completed substantially on budget and on time. Tolaris has also been helpful since we took ownership. They have provided useful advice and assistance in dealing with the minor issues that have arisen. We got to know Rick and his wife Sherrie fairly well during the 15 months of design and construction and now consider them friends. When you can say that about someone with whom you've had a fairly large business deal I think it's a good indicator of the character of the people."

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 Orlando 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 Orlando 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 Orlando 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 Orlando:

  • 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?
