Raleigh, NC Masonry & Stone Veneer Installation by Mangum
Building one masonry home represents a small step in energy conservation and resource management. Each homeowner can be empowered to make a difference in how they impact the environment.
If it’s such a great way to build, why isn’t everyone doing it?
The NC custom home builder can make money building the same way they learned how to build from their parents or old bosses. It’s accepted. It’s easy. It works. Of all the answers I get from my contemporaries, this is the most honest. Why would you change something when you’re already making money doing it one way?
But if you look at the way the typical American home has changed over the last 50 years, more has gone into the finishes and features of a home while quality has slowly deteriorated over that same time. Homes aren’t built the way they were 50 years ago.
Raleigh or Wilmington, NC custom home builders, in general, are leery of promoting and using a feature that, upon closing, the homeowner will not see. They choose to place that extra 1-2% they would have spent on concrete walls into additional profit or finishes.
It’s an understandable approach, but Mangum Design-Build knows better. We give clients custom and period homes and stone work that not only look great upon construction, but are durable and will last for years to come.
Building a Quality Raleigh, NC Custom Home, from the Ground Up
It is a custom home builder’s responsibility to look after not only the first family that lives in that house, but the second, third, and fourth. With commercial property development, it is also our job to make sure the space is welcoming and will accomodate the needs of any business that leases the space. But most builders don’t see it that way.
Production builders (tract home builders) have and will always default to building and promoting products that generate the most profit per house. Everything in a production home is systematically calculated and analyzed. From hardwoods, to brick veneers, to the type of faucets, the production home is profit driven. On a production scale, 2-3% premium on a home might not mean much for one home, but when you’re building 10,000-25,000 homes per year, it’s a cost savings that they will not overlook. If a builder is looking out solely for profit, they are not operating in your best interests.

Building a custom concrete home requires preparation, planning, and experience. A builder has to know what he is doing from start to finish before he begins building one. It requires a lot more time on the job site. It requires a better builder. Finishes and features are only a small part of what makes up your home.
