When it’s finally time to build or remodel your home in the Eastern Rochester area, the builder you choose is just as important as the parcel of land you purchase, the floor plan you choose, and the materials that go into your home. Making the right builder choice is a big deal, so how do you choose?
Do the awards and affiliations a builder has really matter? While every builder worth his circular saw likes to be acknowledged for his work, the real question is: what do these awards and affiliations mean to you—the homeowner?
Gerber Homes is a member of the Rochester Home Builders Association, the State Home Builders Association and the National Home Builders Association. That means we subscribe to certain standards of performance and conduct. We’re held accountable, and we’re also involved with other builders that are constantly looking for better, more efficient ways to deliver quality. That means you’re not dealing with some “lone wolf” contractor who’s not accountable to others. And it means that you benefit from the combined expertise and knowledge of a group of professionals.
Awards are nice, but some trophy doesn’t do you a lot of good. The thing is, it’s not the trophy or the award that matters. It’s why a builder wins it that counts. It’s recognition from others in the industry that a builder is achieving exceptionally high levels of quality in his craft. Gerber Homes has won awards for “Builder of the Year,” the “Homearama People’s Choice Award” and was even inducted into the Home Builders’ State Hall of Fame. That means you can deal with a builder that doesn’t just talk about good building practices and quality—they deliver.
We’re also part of the community. We’re not just here to build a few homes and then ride off into the sunset. We live here, too—and have for three generations. With more than 50 years of experience, we’ve built more than 3,000 homes in the surrounding communities! And because this is our home, too, Gerber Homes is a member of the Ontario, Webster and Canandaigua Chambers of Commerce.
We’re proud of our awards and affiliations—not because we want to put something in a trophy case, but because of what it means for our customers. We really do believe that YOU’RE number one! We Build Dreams. Families Live Them!
