7 More Reasons to Choose TCB

1. Unmatched Quality Workmanship At Every Phase

The Thomas Custom Builders name is synonymous with spectacular workmanship from start to finish. We don’t take shortcuts, and we don’t settle. There’s no compromising with Rick Thomas and Dave Holmes.

2. Project Oversite

Dave Holmes is incredibly demanding of our work crews. There is no room for second rate work. Our field crew and Project Manager are continuously analyzing progress onsite and always available to address any questions or concerns you may have. Our goal is not just meet but to exceed your expectations.

3. Rock-Solid and Stable Finances

We wouldn’t have survived in the home remodeling business without a stable financial foundation. You can be confident that we will be around to stand behind or workmanship far into the future.

4. Single Contact Communication

One of the most common compliments we get (and we don’t want to sound like we’re boasting here, but we receive a lot of them) is that we’re excellent communicators.  If you have had home remodeling done before (or even if you haven’t), then you should know that homeowners are often left with a list of numbers of people to call when they have questions. Or, homeowners are left wondering, “What’s next? What happened on my job this week? When will the job be done?”

You don’t have that problem with Thomas Custom Builders. With a single call you can always reach the owner, and we will personally handle any question you might have. We also provide regular updates by email or phone from our team about the status of your job. After all, it’s your home, and you deserve to know what we’re doing with every minute of every day on your job.

5. Full Year Warranty On Craftsmanship

 Thomas Custom Builders offers a full year warranty on our craftsmanship. That’s simply something sub-standard crews can’t afford to match.

6. When We Start, We Work Until It’s Done (No Drawn-Out Deadlines or Surprises)

We know what it takes to get your job done right the first time, including hiring the right labor and ordering the right materials. We also accurately assess the amount of time each project will take, and we communicate the timeline to everyone on the job. When we start, we stay on the job, according to schedule, until it’s finished. Period.

7. Blend New With Existing Structure – and Make It Look Good!

Nobody wants to see the line of separation where the new home addition begins. We pride ourselves on seamless design that makes home additions or kitchen and bath updates look natural.

It’s also usually a relatively expensive undertaking that can turn out to be one of the worst experiences of your life if you choose the wrong company.
