Innovative architectural exteriors
Open sight lines, thoughtful room placement and well-designed traffic patterns
EnergySaver™ homes backed by the Environments For Living® Program’s heating and cooling energy usage guarantee"
In this article, we'll explore the David Weekley home buyers experience in more detail giving you the insight and knowledge you should know before choosing a builder.
David Weekley New Construction Home Buying Process
Below are phases that you can expect over the next several months while your new David Weekley home is being built.
Ready, Set, Wait?
At the start, you might not see much activity on your homesite. Don’t worry! A lot of behind-the-scenes work is happening. This is when David Weekley secure the various permits, finalize plans, distribute blueprints to the plumbers, electricians and framers and order materials. It might be several weeks before any major activity begins on your homesite, but rest assured that all of the background work is being done to create a smooth process!
Stage 1: Foundation Complete
This is when David Weekley prepares the homesite, set foundation forms, install in-slab plumbing and when the concrete is poured and cured. This is the point when many people wonder if their home will be large enough. Seeing the foundation without walls can be very deceiving.
Stage 2: Frame Complete
You'll be surprised how quickly this is done. One day, there’s nothing but slab. A few days later, there’s a home – well, at least the framework of one, with exterior and interior walls, as well as the roof. This is when you get your first true sense of your home’s breadth and shape.
Stage 3: Shingles Complete
This is when the structure becomes "weatherproof." We install decking, flashing and shingles. We also install the windows and wrap the exterior walls with sheathing.
Stage 4: Insulation Complete
All electrical wiring, outlets and breaker boxes are installed at this stage. Air conditioning and heating equipment is put in place, as well as plumbing. This is also when municipal inspections are completed.
Stage 5: Drywall Complete
After electrical, plumbing, HVAC, inspections and insulation are complete and exterior and interior wall surfaces are covered and finished, your home begins to resemble its final form. Brick, stucco and/or stone goes up on the outside. Drywall is installed and texture is applied inside.
Stage 6: Interior Trim and Doors Complete
Once the drywall is complete and the texture has cured, the finish carpenters arrive to install all the interior doors and molding, as well as any staircase railings and balusters.
Stage 7: Kitchen and Vanity Tops Installed
Next, David Weekley installs kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Countertops are set in place and all of the interior is primed and painted.
Stage 8: Carpets Installed
After the paint dries, your plumbing and light fixtures come in. This is also when carpeting, tile and wood flooring is installed.
Stage 9: Personal Builder Completes the Home
During this stage, the Project Manager, Warranty Service Representative and your Personal Builder℠ perform a thorough inspection of your entire home to assure that it meets our high standards of construction.
Stage 10: Homebuyer Accepts Home
Your Personal Builder will introduce you to your new home, pointing out all its unique features and systems. In as few as 10 days, you will have closed and be given the keys to your brand new David Weekley home.
During settlement, you will be provided with a warranty request form which ensures any future warranty work is noted and corrected. David Weekley always surveys all buyers after move-in and utilizes their feedback for future design modifications. After moving into your new home you can log into your "My Home" portal to add more personalized options and report warranty issues. This portal is also available during the new construction process to keep up with checkpoints and updates with photos!
