Most things you'll want
are just plain Included.
With Copper Builders’ all-inclusive pricing, you’ll enjoy clarity and peace of mind throughout the new home construction process. You’ll receive pictures, descriptions and the itemized prices of everything in your home, in an organized document. There are no hidden costs, and no unwelcome surprises. According to our clients, meeting with us for their price quote is the most valuable part of their homebuilding journey.
Included Features in every New Construction Home from Copper Builders
While our Included Features vary by community, every project must meet our high-quality standards. Your Selections document outlines exactly what’s included in your new construction home. Additionally, every Copper Builders home has the following features.
Enjoy peace of mind with a 1-Year Warranty on your entire home, plus a 10-Year Structural Warranty. Our homes are built to last – we’ve taken the extra step of partnering with Guardian Builders Warranty (GBW) to provide warranty insurance on our homes. We include a comprehensive home warranty that meets the highest industry standards.
Fixed Price Construction
We believe in transparency, with a fixed-pricing system that provides peace of mind. Many custom builders use a “cost-plus” pricing model, adding a management fee to the cost of construction. This puts the builder in charge, not the client, and increases the risk of cost overruns. With fixed pricing, we’re accountable for getting things right.
Most custom builders build a few homes each year; we build hundreds. Copper Builders’ purchasing power means on-time deliveries to keep your project on schedule and volume discounts from our suppliers. That savings is passed along to our clients, with higher quality finishes at value prices.
With so many years of experience, we’ve seen firsthand which products are made to last. We carefully select trustworthy brands that we know our clients can depend on. Copper Builders homes feature quartz countertops, modern fireplaces, solid-built cabinetry and mahogany front doors.
Our trade partners are critical members of the Copper Builders team. We have a stringent hiring process and have ongoing relationships with the best in the industry. All of our trades follow best practices to ensure precision and quality.
High Ceilings and Enlarged Spaces
A high first floor ceiling creates a spaciousness that you won’t find in a resale home. The extra volume and height gives your home’s interior a feeling of lightness and calm in your most important living areas and entry ways.
Interior Trim Details
We incorporate architectural elements like ceiling trays, wall paneling and decorative molding to add high-end style to both traditional and modern homes.
Site Finished Hardwood Flooring
Lasting homes need long-lasting flooring. Our hardwood floors are stained in your chosen color, and then sanded and finished on site by our flooring experts.
Copper Builders homes feature low-maintenance exterior finishes that are built to last. We’ve chosen 30-Year architectural shingles, backed with a radiant roof underlayment that reflects heat and saves energy. Low maintenance doesn’t have to mean boring either, these days a beautiful exterior can also last a lifetime.
Professional Design Help
Designing your dream home is exciting – and intimidating. Our expert designers will turn your ideas and inspiration into cohesive design selections, so your dream home is perfect for you.
Easy Project Organization
Good organization is key to a hassle-free experience. Our CoConstruct App and online software lets you collaborate with your designer and trade partners, tracks your selections to keep you on budget, and keeps you up to date on the schedule.
A Better New Home Construction Process
Watch your dream home take shape while Copper Builders does the hard work! Many custom builders are “jack of all trades” types that may understand construction but lack business sense, making the process slow and painful. With Copper Builders, you’ll make design selections in advance – so there’s no last-minute scramble. With our innovative CoConstruct system, you’ll have questions answered quickly, feel confident that selections are properly noted, and receive regular updates and progress photos.
How "Allowances" Work
Custom homes are all we build. Every Copper Builders home is as unique as the family who lives there.
Using "Allowances" To Design Your Home
When you build a custom home, we set aside a budget for the interior finishes you’ll select with your designer. This is called an Allowance. Working with allowances gives you broader design choices and more flexibility in the way funds are applied. Builders who don’t work with allowances must limit their clients’ options. A request for changes can result in significant upcharges.
Benefits of Allowances
The Power of Accurate Allowances
A properly designed allowance system sets a budget that’s realistic for the type of home being built. For example, the flooring allowances for Copper Builders homes are calculated using the cost of hardwood floors, not laminate or vinyl. Some builders will “low bid” a custom new home construction project by using allowances for mid-grade finishes, then adding upcharges when the client selects the high-end materials they expected.
At Copper Builders, we’ve spent years developing accurate allowances that meet luxury home standards, so there are no surprises. Our generous budgets allow most people to create stunning new construction homes without needing to spend more.
Custom Cabinetry Allowance
Your allowance includes custom cabinetry that’s designed specifically for your storage needs and lifestyle. Our trusted cabinet designer knows exactly what questions to ask before creating a kitchen that’s both functional and beautiful. Choose custom kitchen features like drawers sized for your pots and pans, specialty storage for a stand mixer or blender, or glass fronts for display. Add a baking center, coffee bar, or extra bins for recycling. Custom cabinets let you fully integrate appliances, with the refrigerator and dishwasher hidden behind matching door panels.
Lighting is an industry that offers limitless options, and we love encouraging our clients’ creativity. Our trade partners work closely with you to optimize your allowance and find lighting that speaks to you.
Your budget for appliances allows for high-end brands, giving you access to a broad range of features and options. Your allowance includes the refrigerator, dishwasher, cooktop and wall ovens. Or substitute in a commercial range. Our trade partners are experts who will help you fine-tune your selections. Customize your kitchen further with upgrades like a second dishwasher, a wine refrigerator, or a built-in coffee system.
Ceramic Tile and Stone Allowance
Our generous tile allowance lets you design a statement-making kitchen backsplash, a stunning custom shower, or bathroom floors with patterns and borders.
Durable, high-end quartz countertops are standard on Copper Builders homes. Choose from a wide range of solid colors, or the newest designs that replicate marble, granite and limestone in stunning detail.
Plumbing Fixtures Allowance
Using the plumbing allowance, you’ll work with our team to design stylish bathrooms using high-quality, name brand fixtures. Create a spa-like master suite with our custom options for faucets, sinks, shower sets, rain heads, and bathtubs.
Closet Shelving Allowance
Work with a professional designer to craft a master closet that’s perfectly suited to your storage needs – your allowance includes custom closet shelving.
