Here's What It's Like to Build a Raleigh Custom Home - Review of Stanton Homes:

"Stan (the owner) has put together a group of people that care about the quality of home they build. I would like to mention that it took us about a year to find land to build but Stanton Homes honored there initial quote even after a year (which is technically only for 60 days). This spoke volumes about their character to ensure that we were building the most affordable home possible. Although cost of building materials had most likely increased after a year, they didn’t try to pass the increase in expense on to us.

During the initial design phase we worked with Jim, who is super!!! Jim was always accommodating to our busy work schedules. He was available day and night to work with us on any concerns about design changes.

We also really enjoyed working with Phil (an up and coming project manager at Stanton Homes that is great to work with) over the last 8 months of construction. As a home owner and someone who has some experience in construction, I was heavily involved throughout the entire building process. Some companies might have found it somewhat intrusive during the building process but Phil was more than accommodating to address any concerns or questions I had. I would like to mention that Stanton Homes has a framer (Nick) they use that I would recommend to anyone because he does an excellent work!!

I also would like to mention that Andrea, the interior designer, is great with helping you make your home look beautiful- thanks again Andrea for all of your suggestions, especially the dining room color.

Darwin and Charles are great to work with as well. They wrap up many of the fine little details just before you move in. We have been in our home for about four months and have not had any problems. For the size of this company, they are one of the best builders out there. I would recommend this company to anyone. If you ever need any additional details just send me an email at dwilli8@yahoo.com. I would be more than happy to talk with you further about our experience with this company. Overall this is an excellent company.

Just to give everyone a final update, we have been in our home for approximately 18 months now. We did not have any major issues during our 6 month, 8 month, 12 month, and final 18 month inspection provided by Stanton Homes. There were your general nail pops and minor caulking issues that happen as a house goes through multiple seasons. Phil had the painters come in immediately during our final house inspection to deal with those issues. The painters were an excellent crew that cleaned up every day after they finished, which is something we really appreciated given that we have two young children. Stanton Homes builds an excellent home and we are very pleased with the craftsmanship and friendly service provided during our building process. Make sure you ask for Phil when you decide to build with Stanton Homes."

Here's What It's Like to Build a Stanton Home - Reviews of Stanton Homes:

We are pleased to write the strongest possible review of Stanton Homes and the team that build our beautiful, custom home in the historic Hope Valley in Durham NC.

Through lifetime of relocations, we had owned six homes previously and had an experience of building a custom home in Kentucky. Thus, as we set out to build our retirement home where we plan to “age in place”, we began our search for a custom homebuilder. Our criteria were to select a local builder, rather than a national company, for the following reasons.

(a) We wanted the builder to create a unique home for us and not force us to select from 6-8 cookie-cutter designs.

(b) We wanted a builder to respect the beauty of North Carolina and not bull doze acres of land to build 50-100 homes from which to select one.

(c) We wanted a builder who lived in the area, rather than “build and move away”. Only then, a long-term guarantee would be honored and would mean something.

(d) We wanted a builder who is affordable. After meeting with two national builders and 3 local builders, we selected Stanton Homes, 800 W Williams St, Apex, NC 27502.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our overall Stanton Homes experience, and highly recommend them to anyone who would like a beautiful custom home. The Stanton Home team really personalizes the details and everyone on their team is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

The most valuable player (MVP) in the construction team is of course, Phil Travers, the Project Manager. From the very beginning, he told us that he would meet with us as often as we need him at the site. He was always available to answer our questions and met us on a regular basis on site to discuss any issues that we found. Since we had partially retired, we could be at the site 2-3 times a week and prepared a long list of questions for him. Being compulsive, we prepared such check lists each time we met him. We texted and emailed him with follow-up questions. We didn't really need to be on site this frequently and some of our questions were premature in that they would have been solved over time. In responding to such questions, Phil was very patient, polite and kind. He took the time to explain to us how each issue will be addressed.

Building a house is an arduous, anxiety provoking process, requiring attention to thousands of details. Patience and persistence on part of the client yield handsome dividends but the client needs a reputed trustworthy builder and a cohesive, skillful team. Stanton Home provides such a team. We strongly recommend Stanton Home as a custom homebuilder in the research triangle area of North Carolina.
