Choosing a Building Contractor in the Texas Coastal Bend Area

Choosing a building contractor in the Coastal Bend area of Texas should be a very carefully and well-thought-out process!
There are many "builders" that will take a set of plans, call the cheapest subcontractors and - BINGO! - your house is built...but at what real cost to you? 

When selecting your contractor, be sure to consider the following questions, and be mindful of the hidden or long-term costs that result from hiring a contractor whose primary focus is getting your house built cheaply.

    • Does the contractor or builder simply choose the lowest subcontractor bidders or does he select quality subcontractors who are known for their workmanship and known to stand behind it?
    • Does the contractor or builder understand the structural requirements for a truly sound structure that will last for years in the coastal environment? In nearly 50 years of building homes, Canterbury Design and Construction, LLC has NEVER suffered any damage to or lost a home that we designed and built to the many storms we get here on the Texas Coast - can other contractors say the same?
    • Does the contractor or builder understand the "R" values and the construction that helps the values of heating and cooling your home required in the Coastal Bend area of Texas?  This knowledge is essential for maximizing home efficiency while also reducing your heating and cooling costs, both immediately and for the long-term!
    • Does the contractor or builder just let the low bid subcontractors choose what materials go into your home?  A good building contractor will be very hands-on throughout the building process, and will be an essential part of making critical decisions like these.
    • Does the contractor or builder have the years of construction experience in the Coastal Bend area of Texas or has he/she just moved into the area?  You will want a contractor who is intimately familiar with the unique aspects of building homes made to withstand the natural forces (pests, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.) present in and unique to the Texas Coastal Bend area!

Building a home is a very expensive investment and the home owner wants his investment to be safe from all the hazards of nature that are present in the Texas Coastal Bend area .  We use the word "investment" because if your home is built correctly it will be an investment that will continue to appreciate over time.  A perfect example of this investment is the first house Canterbury Construction built: it was constructed in Rockport, Texas in 1965 for $19,600.00.  This same home recently sold in 2012 for well over $600,000. This is the type of lasting quality your investment should have as well.

Canterbury Design and Construction, LLC has a proven track record of quality construction that has stood the test of time.  Choose your building contractor wisely in order to ensure the lasting quality that your investment should have!!!
