Not only was their communication amazing, but you could also really see that they cared about our needs, the quality of their work and their subcontractors.

FAQs About Custom Homes

When you are a trusted contractor building custom homes, you become the one people turn to with their questions. At Zar Custom Homes, we could fill a book with all the questions we have been asked about custom homes since we began in 1991, and we are always happy to answer any that you might have. Here are two common questions to get you started:

How are you able to successfully keep projects on schedule and on budget?

There are two main factors involved: experience and relationships. With our experience, we can best anticipate anything that could derail the construction of custom homes and avert the danger. In addition, experience lets you meet challenges as they come up and resolve them quickly. Our relationships with our suppliers and the community also help us overcome challenges. With both experience and relationships, we seldom have “unexpected” issues like someone new to the industry would face.

How is your dedication to consistent communication a benefit to me?

Communication is the number one way to avoid misunderstandings that can lead to an unsatisfactory result. It also helps us keep your project on time and on budget because any issues are caught before they take more time and money to resolve. We also believe that communication reduces your anxiety, so you can enjoy the process fully and remain excited and engaged during the construction.

Why Choose Zar Custom Homes?

When you work with Zar Custom Homes, you will discover that we are not afraid to take risks. Our design process starts with you in mind. We will inquire about your needs, wants, and custom features that you don’t even realize you need yet!

Lisa and Russel are amazing to work with. Not only was their communication amazing but you could really see that they cared about our needs, the quality of their work and their subcontractors. They make a great team (Lisa with the design and vision, Russel with the execution) and made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Highly recommend working with Zar.
We hired Zar Custom Homes to build our house in Eastover in 2013/2014 and it was the best decision we ever made. They were so incredible to work with! They communicated well with us, answered any questions we had during the process, and offered suggestions to help us with difficult decisions we had to make. They really became family during the whole process. The biggest brag we have on them is their dedication to the timeline. They told us it would take 10 months to build the house...and it literally took 10 months (even with weather issues, etc)!! Friends who have built their houses or were doing a renovation with other companies have always complained about a project taking longer than quoted and how frustrated they were, and I love that we didn’t have that problem! We had some unfinished space and decided to finish it a couple years ago...with no hesitation, we called Zar to do the project for us. And I know when we decide to finish our basement, there will be no hesitation then either. You can’t go wrong with Zar! They are the best!
