10 reasons to build a custom home

Building a custom home has many benefits from a design, bulid, project and personal level. We pride ourselves on being a full-service home builder, this holistic approach contributes to a wonderful finished product.

  1. You deal directly with the Builder.

    At Promenade Homes we prefer a personal approach, you are not a job number on a sheet of paper, you are a valued client who has direct access to Rob Frigo, owner and builder, day and night.

  2. An original design to suit your needs, your personality and your style.

    Promenade Homes works with a number of multi-award winning designers. They work closely with you to design a home specific to your requirements and block orientation, as opposed to limiting your choices when using modified standard project builder plans.

  3. We will quote owner supplied plans or architect plans.

    If you have already had your dream home designed, we are happy to work with you and your designer or architect, just ask!

  4. High quality control due to a limited number of homes.

    Because Rob is able to be on site regularly to supervise trades, installers and everyone else involved in your build he checks the work to ensure it is only of the highest quality and standards.

  5. Faster response times due to a limited number of homes.

    If something happens which needs to be addressed, we can act straight away as we are not trying to build a vast number of homes, in many areas, at one time.

  6. High quality control due to ongoing relationships with trades and suppliers.

    Rob has formed relationships over many years with a select number of trades and suppliers, so he knows their work is only of the highest quality.

  7. We have a flexible approach to owner supplied items and trades.

    Does your friend sell bathroom hardware? Is your brother a carpenter? No problem, let us know and we will work with you to make it work.

  8. A flexible approach to modifications and variations once on site.

    For better or worse, we all change our minds. Because Promenade Homes is a custom home builder, we are not limited to a set of project rules which govern a build, and if something needs to change we will do our best to do that for you.

  9. Homes completed on or before specified time frames.

    We understand that you are excited to move into your home as soon as possible. Using a custom home builder like Promenade Homes, who build a limited number of homes per year, means less or no delays due to trades being assigned to multiple homes across different sites. We therefore can stay on time or in some cases hand your home over to you early.

  10. Customer service is a high priority!

    For Promenade Homes it is all about relationships. We are a family owned and operated builder, and getting to know our clients personally and meeting their expectations, is very important to us. That’s why we were nominated for the HIA Customer Service Award – Small Volume Builder and we are proud to have been named a finalist.
