Frequently Asked Questions
For all the questions you have when building your new home, we have answers. Here are some of the most commonly asked ones to get you started. If you still have questions Contact Us and our Internet Advisors will be happy to help.
- Can I make changes to a certain floor plan?
You may make minor changes to floor plans. No foundation, elevation (front facade of home) or plumbing changes are available due to engineering, inspectors, etc. We give you many options with the homes so that you may choose what will best suit your needs. You should check with your Personal Builder℠ to ensure that the minor changes you select do not conflict with load bearing walls and structure.
- I'm being transferred to a different city where you build. Can I start the building process before I move?
We build homes for people out of town every day. You will initially have to visit to sign the paperwork with your Sales Consultant. You will then need to meet with your Builder to go over your selections. After that, he will be in contact with you to update you weekly on the status of your home.
- What is the difference between the Build on Your Lot program and the Master Planned Communities?
The Build On Your Lot program is for Homeowners who own their own land. It is the lot owner who must provide sewer, electrical and water before the building process with David Weekley Homes can begin.
In a Master Planned Community, the developer is responsible for providing the sewer, electrical and water as part of the community. A monthly maintenance fee is charged for the maintenance of most of the amenities that are associated with a Master Planned Community.
- What's the difference between an Imagination Collection and your regular Weekley home?
David Weekley Homes, whose name has become synonymous with creativity, has found a way to design homes that live, look and feel far above their price range - introducing the David Weekley Homes Imagination Collection. These homes look as if they couldn't possibly be this affordable. And, that's a big part of their beauty and value. With a home from the Imagination Collection, you'll enjoy all the benefits of a David Weekley home - Design, Choice and Service.
This collection of homes is designed and built with the same craftsmanship and many of the same features David Weekley homes are so well known for. By eliminating some of the more costly, less obvious options, we've crafted homes with a look and feel far above their price range. You'll still enjoy making decorator selections like flooring, carpets and countertops, as well as the personal attention we provide through our Personal Builder℠ and Warranty Service programs. If you're looking for an exceptional home at a reasonable price by a builder you can trust, choose the David Weekley Homes Imagination Collection.
- I am relocating to one of your cities, how can I find out about homes that are already under construction?
Each of our cities has a page that lists homes under construction and their estimated times of completion. To search for available homes navigate to Quick Move In in the Find a Home section.
- Do you sell your floor plans?
Our floor plans are not for sale. They have been developed after years of preparation and discovery about how people live in and use their home. In addition, every homesite has particular characteristics and soil conditions that require engineering and attention to detail, affecting the suitability of a floor plan to the site itself.
- What is a Bonus Room?
It is an optional room that may be added to the floor plan, usually upstairs, where a family can have a media room, work-out facility or an additional all-around gathering room.
- Why do you offer only certain floor plans in one community and not in another?
Most Master Planned Communities are governed by the developer. We have to meet certain guidelines in a community and therefore may be limited in our decisions.
- Are garages included in the square footage?
We do not include garage space in our square footages.
- I'd like to work for your company. Who do I talk to?
You'll find more information on our career page accessible from our home page or visit WorkForWeekley.com.
- Could you tell me the advantage of HardiPlank compared to real wood?
HardiPlank® is used in many communities for exterior siding and exterior wood trim. It combines the look and warmth of natural wood with the durability of fiber-cement.
Hardiplank resists damage from humidity, rain, snow, salty air and termites. You may not have to paint as often as you would with wood
- Do you offer computer pre-wiring?
We offer ISDN lines, Cat 3, Cat 5, as well as other options.
- Do you have virtual tours on your web site?
Yes, we do. These virtual tours offer you a 360 degree view of rooms or exterior surroundings of our homes. You will see links throughout the site on floor plans that have virtual tours.
