•What do I need to know about soils issues?
Colorado is home to expansive soils in many areas, which can cause major issues when building a home. When moisture is absorbed into this type of soil, it can swell and exert pressure on a home’s foundation. Camerata Homes has extensive experience in dealing with soils issues. We always have a complete analysis done before any work begins. Problems can be avoided when the builder understands how to design and build the home to be compatible with its environment. Camerata Homes provides a copy of A Guide to Swelling Soil for Colorado Homebuyers and Homeowners to every new homeowner.
•What does it cost to build a semi-custom home?
One of the most common requests a home builder receives is to give a ‘per square foot price’ for their homes. This is a difficult number to produce without details about the actual project. Variables such as the soil type and topography of the lot, the desired building materials, the design layout, and the interior finishes all have a direct impact on the price of the home. Tile roofing, stucco, stone, brick and siding vary widely in price. Wood and tile flooring are much more labor intensive than carpet. Wood trim costs more than a paint grade trim. High end doors, windows and cabinets can also substantially increase the overall price. If scraping a lot in order to build a new home, an additional $15,000 or more can be expected for demolition and removal of the old home. There are also considerable differences in costs from one location to another. Some communities have special district fees, and can also have a wide range of utility fees, including water tap fees and other utilities. Camerata Homes will take all of these elements into account when they determine a home’s price. We provide free, new home consultation and new home analysis.
