WE ARE LOOKING TO BUILD A NEW HOME, CAN YOU HELP US SELECT A PIECE OF PROPERTY?

Absolutely. It is never too early to involve a contractor in your project. The sooner we are involved in the construction process, the more control you can have in meeting your budget and design goals effectively. We are happy to meet you on various sites to give our expert opinion on home layout, ease of access, utilities, etc.

WE HAVE PLANS AND LAND, CAN YOU BUILD OUR HOME FOR THE SQUARE FOOT PRICE WE HAVE BUDGETED?

Square foot pricing is complicated. Foundations, decks, garages and other spaces often aren't counted in a price per square foot cost. However, material and labor is still required to complete all aspects of your home. Therefore, square foot pricing isn't always an accurate way to budget for your home. Additionally, selections and desired finishes vary greatly between owners. We recommend that all parties meet and discuss expectations and create a preliminary estimate for pricing direction. 

CAN YOU REFINISH OUR HARDWOOD FLOORS, REPAIR SIDING AND RE-TILE A BACKSPLASH?

If you own a home, you know there are always repairs and small remodel projects. However, as a general contractor, we are unable to provide handyman services. It is most cost effective for homeowners to hire a handyperson who can tackle multiple small jobs when permits are not needed. Please give us a call to determine if a General Contractor is needed for your project. If not, we will happy recommend trades to help you complete your home project.

HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?

M.G. Dillingham works within one hour of Weaverville, NC. We hold a General Contractors license in the state of North Carolina.

CAN YOU PROVIDE DRAFTING OR ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES?

We always recommend involving a professional designer or architect to help plan your home. Having plans drawn not only helps you correctly envision your space, it also helps to ensure more accurate estimates. Though we pride ourselves on creativity and problem solving throughout the process, we do not offer any drafting or design services in house.
