We're here for you, every step of the way

Communication is the Key

When you make the decision to build a new home with Vintage Homes, we provide you with our Vintage Homes Homeowner Specification Manual, which serves as your "guideline" while your home is being built. While your home is being built, the manual will detail every stage of the construction process, as well as prepare you for each meeting that you will attend with your Vintage Homes team, which will be taking place in the weeks after your contract is signed. 

Your Vintage Homes Homeowner Specification Manual has been designed to assist you through every step of the exciting process of building a new home. We ask that you read certain sections prior to your appointments to help the process flow easier. Because communication is a vital ingredient to customer satisfaction, the Vintage Homes Homeowner Specification Manual helps to answer many of your questions before, during, and after your home is completed. 

Communication is key
