We will visit your lot with you to walk it and discuss our ideas for your home’s construction.

Is Petrine licensed and insured?
As a professional construction company, Petrine has carries general contractor liability insurance. This covers any property damage or bodily injury the company accidently may cause to you, your family, or and property. We are glad to show you copies of our license and insurance certificates.
Do we get to select building materials, appliances, styles and finishes?
Where you really get to make choices is during the selections process. Our experienced designers will walk you through all of the decisions you need to make as to your appliances, counter tops, cabinets, finishes, colors, lighting and other materials. You will have a spending allowance defined in your contract through which you can make your selections at no additional cost. If you wish to go outside that cost, you can, but you will need to make up the difference in price yourself.
Are my home styles limited by Petrine?

What is the difference between cost plus and fixed price contracts for custom home builds?
A fixed price contract does not depend on the resources used or the time spent. It most often offers a firm price or has a ceiling price/target cost on an adjustable rate. A fixed price contract puts the risk and responsibility on the contractor for all costs, which can influence the resulting profit or loss.
Will Petrine go over budget on our custom home?
How often do we need to visit the building site?
What types of foundations do you offer?
Petrine can also build a full basement upon which the house is built. We excavate the dirt, then place footings below the frost line, and pour a concrete slab to create a floor. This also creates an extra level within your home for a family rec room, gym, workshop or storage, and can increase the value of your home.
Should we choose a custom builder before or after we find a lot?
If you already have a lot, let’s talk about how we can use your lot to its best advantage when designing and building your custom home, capitalizing on the sun’s orientation, views, slopes and other factors.
