Over the last few weeks, we’ve received numerous questions from Realtors, existing customers and prospective home buyers about what the COVID-19 measures mean for Craig Builders. In short, we’re open but are taking precautions. In an effort to continue to serve our community and address those questions, we provided detailed answers below:
Are you still building homes?
Yes. Per Governor Northam, construction has been deemed essential during this time. As such, we are maintaining construction operations while implementing numerous additional safety measures to keep everyone on our job sites safe.
Are people out looking for homes right now?
Yes. Customers are still relocating here for jobs, downsizing/rightsizing, upgrading, and moving into their desired school districts, among many other driving factors in their lives.
Can I still buy a new construction home?
Yes. Our Customer Representatives are holding small, private meetings as well as FaceTime and Zoom videoconferencing calls. We are prepared to be as flexible as needed in order to serve each customer exceptionally well.
Are your model homes open?
Our model homes are open from 12-5pm or by appointment, although we are limiting visitors to 5 at a time so that we can wipe down surfaces between visits. We are prepared to be as flexible to meet different customer's needs and preferences.
Our models are still available to be accessed by Realtor lockbox.
To ensure a safe environment, additional cleaning measures have been put in to place and all frequently touched surfaces are being disinfected between visits.
Can I see your model homes online?
You can find more information about our model homes here: Model Homes
How will this impact your 100% On-Time Deliveries?
Our team is working tirelessly towards having zero disruption to our reputation for on-time deliveries.
We are working closely with the Albemarle County government offices to ensure that building permits, inspections and certificates of occupancy can still be obtained in a safe manner
Is this impacting supply chains?
We’ve noticed small delays in procuring materials in certain phases of construction and have implemented steps to mitigate delays as much as possible.
In an effort to preempt potential delays, we’ve adjusted the timeline for our Design Studio meetings so that we can order materials early and ensure they arrive on the job site on time.
Over six decades of building homes in Charlottesville and Albemarle County, we have prioritized building a limited number of homes each year to ensure an unwavering commitment to the quality and on-time delivery of each home that we build. During this time, that commitment is as important as ever and we’re grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve our community in that regard.
