We worked with Hurd Builders to build our custom home, and then we had them back to finish our basement. We cannot say enough good things. They are reliable, honest, and clearly take pride in their work. They also get a lot of joy making their customer’s ideas a reality. Between Russ’s builder expertise, Melody’s design experience, and their employee’s and contractors’ care for the details, we’re so glad we worked with Hurd Builders.
Two of the biggest issues I hear from friends and neighbors who built their own homes are outrageous cost overages and repeated problems. Hurd’s pricing is realistic. Baring unavoidable, unexpected expenses, you will be able to complete your project within a reasonable margin. We made selections for our house without compromising on design or quality. We ended up having a small overage that we thought was quite predictable and reasonable.
As for problems, there will always be a couple surprises. And surprises are far different than the nightmares you hear of that result from the poor planning and communication other builders are known for. One of the great things about Hurd Builders is that they mitigate the stress the customer experiences by handling most issues. If that can’t be done, expect a patient, clear explanation. They’ll follow that explanation by collaborating with you to resolve the issue. Their integrity was never more obvious than when we had a handful of conversations about unavoidable problems.
As if that all isn’t enough, when they found out our previous home was selling, they tightened the schedule of the remaining work. They worked very quickly the last few weeks to get us into our home in time. We were incredibly grateful for them taking care of our family in this deeply personal way.
