Being a Good Neighbor During Home Construction

being a good neighbor during home construction

Building a brand-new custom home from scratch is exciting for our clients as well as our team. From developing the home’s design to selecting interior finishes, we aim to make the process as stress-free as possible. However, our customer service doesn’t stop with our clients. We know that the construction process has the potential to be stressful for the neighbors too – and we want to ensure that our clients have great neighbor relationships once they’re ready to move in. With a deep understanding of how construction can impact the community, we try to make the experience pleasant for everyone involved. Here’s how Hibbs Homes puts an emphasis on being a good neighbor once construction on our client’s home begins.

We Send an Introduction Letter

Hibbs Homes cares about the needs of area homeowners as well as our clients. Before we start any home construction project, our team sends a letter to those who live in the neighborhood. In the letter, we introduce ourselves and offer the following information about the project.

  • The location of the home
  • Date construction will start
  • Estimated timeline
  • Our contact information

We also let homeowners know we’re available to address any questions or concerns they may have.


Limit the Impact on Neighborhood Traffic

Nothing can have such a negative impression your day quite like being late, right? Whether you’re on your way to work or just planning to run errands, having travel interrupted by heavy machinery and tools blocking roadways and parking is a huge hassle. Hibbs Homes makes it a goal to impede neighborhood traffic as little as possible. We try to move machinery and receive material deliveries as quickly and efficiently as we can to keep traffic moving at a normal pace.


Reducing Noise During Construction

It goes without saying home construction is a noisy business. Job sites are filled with the sound of hammering, sawing, and so much more. So much noise can be a nuisance which is why we begin and end our work day during appropriate times. Homeowners can rest assured they will not be woken up by noisy machinery during the early morning hours. Likewise, we do not work late into the night.


Worksite Etiquette

Our team of contractors and vendors is composed of professionals who strive to behave professionally throughout the construction process. Neighbors can expect our contractors and staff to be courteous and respectful at all times.


Cleaning Up the Worksite

Our team at Hibbs Homes understands a construction site can be an eyesore to those who live in the neighborhood. With that in mind, we work hard to keep the worksite tidy and clear of debris. When construction ends for the day, we make it a point to clean up the area by putting away equipment and ensuring discarded materials are disposed of properly.
