Personalized approach to your project
From your first consultation to the time you approve your estimate, we deliver a personalized approach to designing and building. From listening to your needs and exploring your vision board, to presenting you options for colors and finishes, our process ensures your preferences are front-and-center.
On-budget and on-time
During the introductory process, we'll hear your needs and take time to scope every detail to ensure that by the time construction begins, you have a clear understanding of the cost and timeline to anticipate. If you find that your desires surpass your budget, we present you with an alternate approach that potentially saves time and money.
Frequently asked questions
Do you remodel homes that Van Metre didn't build?
Absolutely! We are not at all limited to Van Metre built homes. Regardless of who built your home, Van Metre Design+Build would be happy to discuss your project.
How does cost for a home remodel compare to cost to buy and move to a different home?
That is a difficult question to answer because individual situations are unique. As a reference, each year Remodeling Magazine compiles a ‘Cost vs. Value’ report to compare the most popular remodeling projects. For selling your home and moving into a different home, you should expect to sacrifice no less than 10 – 15% of a home’s sale price on ‘transaction’ cost (closing cost/real estate commissions, cost for moving and initial cost to settle into the new house).
Is my project too small for Van Metre Design+Build?
Our Design+Build project minimum is $15,000. However, if your budget is under our project minimum and is more straightforward (little to no design required) then please inquire about our Handyman Support.
Will you build a custom home on my lot?
Yes! We can design and build a new home on a lot you own. We can also handle all site work to prepare your lot including all utilities, engineering, architecture and required permitting.
Are my material selections limited (Cabinetry, Countertops, Fixtures, etc.)?
Not at all. Our Design Centre for Van Metre new home communities is a great resource but you are not limited to just those items. Van Metre Design+Build partners with many other vendors which won't limit your selections in any way.
What areas does Design+Build serve?
We work in Northern Virginia. Some of the counties we work in include Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William and Fauquier.
