How Projects Progress

McBride Custom Homes follows strict standards throughout the life of a project to ensure your home is exactly as you’ve always dreamed, with as little disruption as possible. We also work closely with our sub-trades to put together a project schedule that highlights the events of each day as well as milestone dates. This schedule is posted where everyone, including you, can see it. We pride ourselves on completing projects on-time.

Here’s what to expect at key stages:


Thorough Job Planning and Specifications

Each project begins with an in-depth interview and thorough walk-through with all involved parties, followed by a very specific and clear quote that clearly states all of the details and specifications of the project at length. This upfront process keeps everyone on the same page—and helps ensure we stay on budget.


Meticulous Job-site Management

We pay attention to the smallest details. We work with you to determine where to park our trucks, where to place the dumpster, and whether or not a port-a-john is required. We take off our shoes, cover carpet, and clean up at the end of every day so that we disrupt your life as little as possible.


Consistent Dust Control

We use industry leading HEPA filter air cleaners on every project to ensure superior dust control in your home. We’re so focused on dust control that we have even had clients say their home was cleaner while we were working on it than before we arrived!


An Expert, Professional Team

When hiring employees, we look for professionals who share our vision and passion. Everyone who becomes a McBride employee enjoys the process of creating things and servicing the client. We only hire the best professionals in our industry and are committed to their success.


Long-Term Warranty
