Building the American Dream

You dream it and we'll nail it.

From the first pre-construction meeting to the ceremonial delivery of your front door key, we keep you informed every step of the way. After all, we’re not constructing a new house, we’re building your new home. There’s nothing more important to us than that.

Good communication helps us serve you better and keeps you informed. Please feel free to contact your AllenStyle representative anytime you have a question, concern, or need more information. We’ve also created a handy online tool called Builders Trend. It’s a very convenient way of “checking the job” without actually having to go to the site.

SAFETY DURING CONSTRUCTION

SAFETY POLICY DURING CONSTRUCTION

Your safety is of upmost importance to us. Please contact us any time you wish to schedule a site visit. Our insurance carrier requires everyone wear a hard hat for protection. They also require a member of our staff accompany guests during a scheduled visit. Please remember:

RULE ONE IS SAFETY FIRST.

LOCKS & KEYS

When exterior doors and locks are installed, a master key will be needed to access the home. If you wish to enter your home during the construction process, please contact your AllenStyle Homes representative to schedule a site visit.
