Building Your Dream Home: Top 10 Questions

Q: I know we want to build, but we don't have any idea where to start. How do we begin the process?

A: The first thing to do is research builders in the area. An internet search will likely turn up dozens of residential builders. But simply picking based on an internet search is risky. You should schedule an appointment to meet personally with as many builders as possible. At Integrity Construction, we relish the opportunity to meet with potential new homeowners and assist them in developing a vision for their dream home.

Q: How much is building new going to cost?

A: That depends on your vision. Integrity Construction builds homes throughout the cost spectrum, which means no matter your budget, we can hit your target. So, really, the cost is dependent on what you want in your new home.

Q: How many floor plans do you offer?

A: Really, it is unlimited. Integrity Construction offers everything from standard floor plans to fully custom plans. Our in-house team will guide you through the design process to personalize a floor plan that’s just right for you.

Q: Do you have financing partners?

A: Integrity Construction works closely with our corporate bank to help those building a new home secure financing. If you have a relationship established with another bank, you are free to work with them as well. Regardless, it is essential during the process to ask how much money will be required up front for a down payment.

Q: How much choice do I have with my finishes?

A: At Integrity Construction, we want your new home to be YOUR home. It should reflect your tastes and preferences. And to help you in selecting finishes and colors, we offer you the assistance of our Selections Coordinator who has extensive experience in home décor and design and offers consultation from our fully outfitted showroom. These basic services are offered to you at no additional cost.

Q: What materials are used in building my new home?

A: We have relationships with a wide range of manufacturers to ensure we have access to the best materials at a reasonable cost. If you have a preference for things like faucets, appliances and windows, we are prepared to meet your needs. If you don’t have a preference, we will use the best materials available at the cost point that meets your budget.

Q: Is some type of warranty offered?

A: We pour our heart and soul into the construction of your new home. We work tirelessly to ensure your dream home is everything you expected and more than you could have imagined. And to ensure everything is taken care of if something does go wrong, we offer a ten-year structural warranty and a full one-year warranty on our homes. We frequently go beyond the call of duty to address any and all concerns.

Q: How long does the building process take?

A: For most, it takes 4 to 5 months, but in some cases, it can be as quick as 3 months. A number of things play into the construction duration, from weather to the availability of the various finishes you want. At Integrity Construction, we keep in contact with subcontractors and suppliers to ensure there are no delays in the building process.

Q: Where can I build?

A: We own or have access to lots in residential developments in Ames and rural developments surrounding Ames. We also build in the communities of Gilbert, Story City, Nevada, Huxley, Boone, and more.

Q: Why should I choose Integrity Construction to build my new home?

A: Because we understand your project is about much more than four walls and a roof. It is often the culmination of a dream. And we are humbled to be a part of the process. So, when you build with Integrity Construction, you can count on:
