Home | Experience Hunter Quinn | Our Process

New Home Building Process

One of our goals at Hunter Quinn Homes is to provide the best home buying experience possible. From our very first meeting to our 2-10 Year Warranty Program, we’re committed to helping you – our Charleston neighbors – every step of the way. We’ve included below a time frame about our building process so that you can learn what to expect as we work together to turn your new house into a home. (Or, view our building process brochure.)

Visit our Design Center & Model Home

From selecting paint colors and counter tops to pricing upgrades to turning a flex room into a mother-in-law suite, they'll guide you as you customize your new home.

Pre-Construction Meeting

You’ll be able to meet your construction supervisor to review your home plan* and finalize the options and features that you picked out during your time at the design center. This meeting will take place after the building permit has been received (which can take up to 8 weeks after the initial contract is accepted).

Pre-Drywall Orientation

new home building processYour New Home Consultant will contact you to schedule this appointment. Here, your construction supervisor will take the time to show you how your home is built and can answer any questions you may have about the construction process of your new home. He will verify all of your options such as phone and cable placements and address any concerns that may come up. Please be sure to bring your 2-10 Year Warranty Program booklet, which provides the construction performance guidelines that we use to address any construction concerns you may have throughout the building process. We've created this booklet to help you keep track of all your warranty information in one place and to show you all of the services we provide. (We recommend keeping this booklet with your other important home documents so that you can refer to it as needed throughout the life of your warranties.)

Home Owner Orientation

After inspections have been completed, your New Home Consultant will contact you to schedule this orientation. These meetings generally take place about a week before closing. Your construction supervisor will walk you through all of the finishes of your home. He’ll show you how to operate your new appliances and can answer any questions you have about your HVAC, water heater, etc. This meeting will also give you an opportunity to inspect the home so that any noted issues can be addressed by the builder. Your construction supervisor will also explain all of Hunter Quinn Homes’ post closing procedures and leave you with some valuable information about caring for your new home.

Final Sign Off

closing on a new homeIf you find any issues during the Home Owner Orientation, we offer this additional meeting in order to address these. Your construction supervisor will walk you through your home so that you can see the work that’s been completed and sign off on this work before closing on your new home.

30 day Warranty Inspection

After you’ve been in your new home for 30 days (and have had a chance to try out appliances, etc.) your construction supervisor will contact you for an inspection. During this meeting, he’ll walk through your home with you and address any items covered by your warranties that need repair. (You’ll find all of the items that are covered in your warranties in your 2-10 Year Warranty Program booklet.)

11-Month Follow Up

hunter quinn home warrantiesHunter Quinn Homes takes pride in offering this additional inspection because we want to exceed your expectations for customer service, quality, and value. Because your 1 year warranty expires exactly 1 year after the closing date of your home, it’s important that you request this inspection through our website in advance. In other words, this inspection must be done before the 1 year warranty expires. Inspection appointments can take place anytime during our regular business hours (from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Fridays).

*The plans that are finalized at your Pre-Construction Meeting are the official documents that Hunter Quinn Homes submits for building permits. The models, floor plans, specifications, and dimensions may have been revised, so know that we’ll build your home based on the plans that you approve during the Pre-Construction Meeting. Our artist’s renderings and models, which you’ll initial on your contract, may not be identical to the plans that we finalize at the Pre-Construction Meeting, so please ask us any questions you may have so that we can address your concerns. We’re always happy to help!
