Step-By-Step Construction


At United Home Construction, we have laid out a step-by-step plan that will take each customer from the first construction phase to the final inspection where they are given the keys to their new home. For each phase of construction, there is at least one quality checkpoint that must be passed in order to move on to the next phase. The following will give you more information about each of these phases.



Preconstruction


At the preconstruction meeting, we will have final review of your plans and specifications. Together, we'll verify the placement of the house, review the blueprints, and you will find out what to expect during the building process. Once city and state permits have been attained, construction can begin.



Excavation


After final review of your house plans, a surveyor will stake out the placement of your foundation. Our land clearing crew will remove trees and debris where the foundation is to be placed. The excavation crew will follow. The hole will be excavated and prepared for the foundation.

United Home Construction utilizes several methods to ensure the stability of each foundation.
