5 Reasons to Choose A Custom Builder Over A Volume Builder

For most people, their home is their most significant investment, and many choose to build their own home. This article is aimed to help these people. Volume builders offer a cost-effective solution with designs that are mass-produced. There is certainly a market for this but it’s not for everybody. The below aims to share with you the 5 key benefits of why you would choose a custom builder like us here at Conrad Construction.

The opportunity for more customization

If you choose a custom builder like Conrad Construction the options you have are wider. Where volume builders offer “upgrades” to some features, using a custom builder gives you greater options. This means that you will get more choice regarding the layout, materials, finishes, and other details of your home. It will be designed specifically for your own preferences and needs – rather than just choosing from a limited number of floorplan options.

The opportunity for more personal involvement

Custom builders have less projects on the go at one time, Therefore they are likely to be more involved with their clients. With a custom builder there are more opportunities for collaboration over the design of your home. This can be especially appealing for those who want to have more of a say in aspects of their home and feel a greater sense of ownership and pride in the finished product.

Attention to detail

Custom builders don’t get caught up on finishing a project quickly to save on overheads as they are more focussed on quality, so you may find that they have more attention to detail. They are generally building a single, unique home rather than mass-producing homes which means they are more focussed on building you the home that you want.

Quality Craftsmanship

With custom builds, built to suit your specifications, there is the opportunity for you to choose higher quality materials ensuring an enhanced finished product. As a custom builder, we’d go the extra mile to ensure that the home is built to the highest standards. We aren’t happy unless you are happy.


Custom builders are typically more flexible and willing to make changes to the design and construction of the home as needed, whereas volume builders may be more rigid in their processes. This can be especially helpful if the homeowner has specific needs or preferences that require this more customised approach.

As you have seen from this article, choosing a custom builder offers you a number of benefits, including greater customisation, personal attention, attention to detail, quality, and flexibility.
