Horan Building Company
Home Builders in Providence
"Mark Horan and Horan Building have built two homes for us over the past 10 years. We are a repeat customer for many reasons. It all starts with Mark and his extremely talented team. When getting to know Mark, there is a sincerity and confidence that he is going to build you an unforgettable home. And he did, twice! Building the kind of home Mark does, takes a lot of craftsmen. From the design team to the finish work, these folks are extraordinary. You’ll know what I mean when you see the finished product. Amazing! The people who work for Mark really care about building the best. They are there for you during the process and after as well. The homes are not only beautiful, they are solid too. Time is a great test to owning a home in a beach community. When you visit one of Mark’s projects, new or rich with family memories, you’ll know why we love our home and why there is nobody like Mark and his team! Thank you Mark and Horan Building Company! Sincerely, Hank and Laurie Holbrook"

Cross Tie Construction LLC
Home Builders in Providence
"Building a new home is most likely the largest investment we will make, so it was important to get it right the first time and we did in choosing Cross Tie Construction! Based on their many years of experience and their knowledge of the business, Cross Tie Construction LLC served as an advocate and became an integral and collaborative member of the overall home design. They assisted in helping to establish a realistic budget for each project and then monitored the cost and scope through the design and construction process. They provided extremely generous allowances which allowed us to choose the high-end finishes we desired. Their attention to detail was exemplary and shows in the quality of their work. We continue to get compliments on our home all the time! Each subcontractor was professional, courteous and executed the work as outlined in the builder’s plan specifications and to building code. Because of that, our home was finished on time and within budget!"

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 Providence 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 Providence 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 Providence 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 Providence:


  • 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?
