Go With a Proven Process

When you’re ready to build your custom home, you will receive an extensive blueprint of what you can expect throughout each phase.

The Paradigm team has the expertise, network and creative strategy to construct your forever home. Below are some of our most often asked questions:

It’s a common misconception that only the wealthiest families can afford to work with Virginia custom builders. While the level of customization will inevitably influence the total price, the cost of customizing a build with a reputable company like Paradigm isn’t that much more than building a home in general.

On average, it’s typically cheaper to buy an existing home; however, with a custom home build, you can make sure to include elements that save you money in the long run. You can install energy-efficient appliances, for example, which will yield lower utility bills month after month. Custom homes are also more affordable when it comes to ongoing maintenance. If you were to buy a 20-year-old home, for example, you might have to replace major appliances or even the entire HVAC system within a few months of moving in. Your custom home, on the other hand, shouldn’t need any major repairs for years to come.

Since not every contractor is equipped to build beautiful custom homes, you can’t turn to just anyone to make your dream a reality. The best way to find trustworthy Virginia custom builders is by seeking referrals from friends or loved ones, reading testimonials from past clients, comparing processes, and evaluating past projects. Here’s a complete guide to choosing a Custom Home builder that can help in your decision-making process

The Paradigm Process is comprised of six steps, all of which were designed to give clients exactly what they want in a custom home. Here are the steps:

  1. The Introduction Meeting
  2. The Architectural Design Stage
  3. The Pre-Construction Drawing Stage
  4. The Construction Stage
  5. The Move-In Stage
  6. The Post-Build Stage

As you can see, our Virginia custom builders will be there to guide you every step of the way as we bring your vision to life.
