Custom Homes and Renovations: Making Homeowners Dreams a Reality

by S. Gentry Custom Homes

New homes and renovations are happening at a quick pace to keep up with the demand of Montgomery County and its surrounding communities – one of the nation’s fastest growing and affordable areas. Whether laying foundations for the future, or transforming existing spaces to meet today’s needs, projects take time to complete and having a team to help design and strengthen your inspiration is vital to the process.

Helping clients realize their visions of unique custom homes and customized renovations of existing homes is the mission of Scott Gentry, founder of S. Gentry Custom Homes. Scott is keenly aware building relationships and consistent communication are keys to successful projects. With a lifetime of exposure to the industry, and an earned 22 years of practical knowledge and understanding of the field, Scott confides, “It’s important to have someone you trust with proven experience in construction.”

Scott recognizes extending the kind of trust needed to initiate the building or remodeling process can seem intimidating. To answer this potential uncertainty, he utilizes his own well-developed, longstanding business relationships as a point of confidence for clients. Having a strong network of professionals from multiple specialties helps assure clients the highest quality service and product

Scott’s established association with industry contributors also improves the client’s financial bottom-line. The client-focused team of experts assembled by S. Gentry Custom Homes streamline the building and renovation processes to get the best price for the client without annoying do-overs which can be costly. Scott explains his professional enthusiasm, saying, “Working with homeowners to ensure desired details are met at an affordable price-point within their budget gives me great satisfaction.”

Collaboration is fundamental to successful projects and helping clients achieve their dreams. Scott expands on this concept by stating, “I help clients get the result they desire, through consultation and consistent communication… the best results occur when clients understand the overall concept of their new home or renovation from the beginning. Unknown concepts slow down the process and add expense. From carpet to chandeliers and all points in between, specifics of detailed design create positive outcomes.”

Sometimes it is hard to visualize the end result at the beginning of a project, and potential clients aren’t sure where to start. The S. Gentry Custom Homes response is to establish and maintain clear lines of communication from point of first contact, to and through every level of design and project implementation.

A little extra time spent exploring options upfront can eliminate the emotional distress of surprises by unexpected changes during the process. Scott clarifies, “Preparation is key to starting the process of making your dream home a reality.” Keep a list of features you want in your custom design and bring them to a consultation with the builder. To improve the process, Scott provides his clients unparalleled availability. From initial sketches to final touch-up before move-in, he is experienced in and personally involved with all aspects of making a client’s dreams a reality.

For potential clients, unsure of whether to build new or renovate an existing space, S. Gentry Custom Homes provides some points to consider. With new construction, not everyone wants a home with the same floor plan as their neighbors’ – as produced in developing subdivisions. Scott assures, “We don’t make [clients] choose from a cookie cutter pattern – the homeowner is in the driver’s seat. We can make everything fit together for the perfect plan without the added expense of making modifications to a select floor plan“.

Regarding renovations, he notes, “Some customers love their current location, but want a fresh look. Remodeling is trending upward as available land becomes scarcer.” Additional current trends noted include: Modern Farmhouse, expanded bathrooms, remodeled kitchens, shiplap, resilient exteriors to promote weatherization protection, and black windows and trims. It’s important to remember that any home can be enhanced to increase the value and pleasure of the homeowner.

S Gentry Custom Homes offers services to residential and commercial clients who seek renovations, remodeling, new construction, consulting, and other added features including outdoor kitchens, pools, or additional rooms with expert craftsmen every step of the way.
