Our Process

Construction Process

The following list can be used as a general guideline in following the construction of your new home.  Many times when building a home, this process is not always followed step by step.  Many outside factors such as weather, availability of materials and other unforeseen circumstances may cause a variation in the process.


 

1
Foundation

After obtaining a building permit from the city, the foundation work will begin following excavation of your home site. Footings will be poured, and a few days later the foundation will be constructed.

2
Pre-Construction Meeting

If your home is a pre-sale, you will have a pre-construction meeting after the foundation is poured.

3
Framing

The next step is the framing of your home. During the framing stage, all walls will be sheathed and house wrapped; roof shingles will be layed; and windows and exterior doors will be installed.

4
Rough-Ins

After all framing has been completed, the rough-in stage will begin. At this time, HVAC ducting, electrical wiring and plumbing will be installed.

5
Pre-Drywall

After the home has been framed, you will meet with your Project Manager to determine outlet and TV locations as well as any additional items that may be addressed.

6
Inspections and Quality Control

At this point, several inspections must be completed by code inspectors. Regent Homes will also perform a quality control inspection at this time.

7
Insulation and Air Sealing

During the insulation stage, your home will be closed off and our insulation crew will work diligently to seal every crack and crevice. After all the insulation is installed in the walls and ceilings, an independent party will inspect the home to make sure it meets the requirements for Regent’s EnergySmart program.

8
Drywall, Trim and Paint

Drywall and trim will be installed at this stage. This includes interior doors, baseboards and crown moldings per contract agreement. After the trim is installed, the first stage of painting will begin.

9
Exterior Finishes

While work is being completed inside your home, outside brick and stone will be laid, and siding and underground utilities will be installed.

10
Flooring and Trim-Outs

On the floors tile, carpet and hardwood will be laid. Cabinets and countertops will also be installed. All mechanical trades will come back to your home to install the finishing touches such as lights, plumbing fixtures and electrical trims.

11
Landscaping and Sod

After exterior concrete is installed, landscaping will follow. This is the finishing touch for the exterior of your home.

12
Quality Control Inspection

At this stage, final code inspections are done by local government officials. In addition, Regent Homes own in-house quality assurance inspector completes a checklist to ensure that your Regent home is delivered 100% flawless. Also, an E3 Energy Inspector will visit your home to make sure that it meets all EnergySmart requirements.

13
Walk-Through Orientation

Prior to the closing of your home, you will meet with your Project Manager at your new home. Your Project Manager will show you how to operate the systems and appliances in your new home and will review the details of the warranty program. He/she will also locate inside your kitchen cabinet the emergency contact phone numbers for all the trades that worked on your home.
