Maryville Tennessee Home Builder Review

Maryville Tennessee Home Builder Review

At Debuty, we know we can toot our own horn all day, but what matters is what our clients say about us. We invite you to read this Maryville Tennessee home builder review a former client posted on Google. We look forward to giving you this same care. 

“After being extremely disappointed with customer service from other contractors in Maryville that do Kitchen remodeling, I happened upon Debuty Builders Inc. I sent an email asking if they could help us with a kitchen remodel.  Within an hour, I had a response and an appointment for the next day. We sat down with Robby Waters and picked out a beautiful kitchen. That afternoon Robby had sent us a diagram. Quickly the next day he sent us the price estimate. The following day our cabinets are on order at HALF the price of the other two estimates I received from local contractors.

I cannot tell you how refreshing this experience was.  I had been feeling extreme frustration with other contractors and their lack of customer service and getting back with us! Robby is an amazing representative for Debuty Builders and went out of his way to ensure we were happy with everything. I HIGHLY recommend this business for any remodeling you may have to do!” 

 

We are so honored by our clients trusting us and continuing to spread the word about the work we are doing at Debuty Builders, Inc.  Additionally, our pleased client referrals are the greatest compliment and testament to our hard work.  We take seriously the opportunity to create and better your homes and spaces!  In other words, the team at Debuty can not wait to work with you!

2022 Design Trends

2022 Design Trends

Many design trends making a splash this year are inspired by decades past such as the 40s and 90s. Coupled with a modern approach, you can expect 2022’s homes to be zen and functional. Neutral shades predominate, but bold accents are making appearances. Irradesant hues and metallics – like mother of pearl and bronze – are often featured as well. The outdoors are being invited inside through widened door frames and accordion windows. Merging towards minimalism, cords are being hidden and TVs are being disguised within decor as portrait frames.

Black, White, and Beige

This year’s neutrals have a tiny splash of color in them. Trendy blacks have a touch of olive, and whites have a dash of brown. Past greys and other off-white hues make last year’s kitchens decidedly easier to adapt. This subtle tonal switch instantly brings warmth to a room making guests feel more welcome.

Wood

Scruffy wood has largely been rejected in this year’s design trends. In its place, natural, soft-toned woods have become popular, but they, too, aren’t as simple as they might seem. The trendiest exotics are treated to a barely-there white stain before being finished with a matte sheen. Birch-inspired wood is the exception and is being achieved with the help of distressed, unvarnished surfaces. In contrast, bold wooden wall treatments give art mid-century modern-inspired furniture an element of warmth.

Kitchen Features

Kitchen islands with subtly-shaded bodies are back, so you can haul out your paintbrush. Backsplashes are equally key in this year’s design trends. They’re wider than they’ve ever been, covering entire walls in metallic tiles and verticle patterns. Adding a bold backsplash to your kitchen is one home renovation that can greatly change the dynamic of your room without greatly hitting your bank account.

Open Bathrooms

This year’s bathrooms are inspired by Mediterranean environments. If your tub doesn’t make a statement, it’s time for an upgrade because it will form a key part of an expanded bathroom, which should be spacious and inviting. Homeowners are breaking into their hallways and closets to expand their bathroom footprints. They’re even creating an outdoor space for their destination bathtubs. Add an atrium roof and a garden to your interior bathroom to create a balance between indoors and out. For extra luxury, drying stations are being used instead of walk-in closets.

Not So Open Floor Plans

Open floor plans have been a part of design trends for years, but methods of handling them are constantly in flux. Post covid, building trends seem to reflect more private areas and nooks within a floor plan. Wooden slat room dividers are making an appearance as yet another way to artificially demarcate living spaces without removing the illusion of spaciousness.

Stone

While some stylish homes have been adding more wooden accents, others opt for a cool stone finish. Marble and granite are back on trend, with vintage rattan achieving a contrast. Add original terrazzo or soapstone and you’ll achieve a decidedly light and confident style.

Living Vintage

Painted wood furniture achieves an authentic look that can be enhanced by Mediterranean ceiling beams. Scruffy jute rugs add an unexpected, but thrilling, contrast. Foliage-dominated arrangements are adding a laid-back atmosphere. However, traditional fresh-cut florals are offering charm to design and are being seen more frequently.

What Does it Cost to Build a House?

What Does it Cost to Build a House?

 

 

Or what is your square foot price? These are questions I get asked almost daily, I personally don’t think that there is a fair answer. I love trucks; so, that’s the example I am going to use. What package do you want on it? XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited.  It is based on what you are wanting and what you are willing to pay for. The same applies to your home.

 

Cost Ranges

These numbers are for example purposes .We can take them a 2000 sq foot house and build it as a “base” model  on a slab with builder grade items it may be around $180 a sq foot. ($360,000) Then, we can take the same home and add hardie siding, black some stone on the foundation, higher efficiency Heat/Air Unit, Real hardwood floors, and add elegant quartz tops with high end cabinets. Well that same home is now $225 per sq foot.($450,000).  Let’s add a basement, meaning higher foundation cost, more stone or brick to cover to exposed foundation, the same home is now at $248 per sq ft ($496,000).

 

Technical Factors

When it comes to your home, there are some items that will be decided by your land. We can do a slab foundation less than we can do a cost of a basement. But a unfinished basement will drive up your sq foot price. Because instead of spending 15k on a foundation you are spending 45k on a basement. If you decided to finish the basement it is more money now but it will lower the sq for price over all.  Some of the items items are do we have to clear the land, is the drive way 30’ or 200’ how long is the water line running? How is the soil? Can we do a conditional septic or is it on city sewer? All of this things will effect your per square foot price.

 

Final Quotes and Expectations

Its not fair for me to give you a square foot price and give you an unrealistic price on your biggest investment. The overall cost is within the details of what you want and any specifics of your property. Building your home should be a fun and enjoyable experience with realistic expectations.

Preventing Condensation in your home

Preventing Condensation in your home

Why is there water on the windows inside my house? Condensation is the answer. Condensation is the process of moisture collecting on surfaces that are cooler than the surrounding air. During winter months you may notice moisture at your windows on especially cold days. HVAC systems only dehumidify the air when they are operating in cooling mode. When they are in heating mode, no dehumidification takes place. Because of this, the relative humidity in your home will be slightly higher at times during the winter. We can help you with some information about preventing condensation in your home.

When warm, moist air meets cool windowpanes, droplets form on the surface. In Tennessee, during hot and humid weather, you will find condensation accumulating on the exterior of windows. Often you will hear the weatherman refer to “dew point.” Dew point is the temperature when the air mass is fully saturated; relative humidity is 100% causing the water vapor to become a liquid. So, at 72° with relative humidity at 50% inside your home the dew point is 52.4°. Say that is the situation in your home and someone takes a shower and doesn’t use the exhaust ventilation and the home is now 72° with 55% humidity. Now your dew point is 55° and if your window surface temperature is 55° or below, you will have condensation. If you have a home temperature of 70° with 40% relative humidity your dew point is 44°. That means if your window surface temperature is 44° or less, your windows will sweat.  

Here are some great tips on preventing condensation in your home.:

  1. Ensure you are using the exhaust fans in the bathrooms when showering. Run the fans for about 20-30 minutes after the shower so it can pull the humidity out of the air preventing condensation in your home.
  2. Use the exhaust fan over the cooktop or range in your kitchen while cooking. If you are boiling water make sure to keep a lid on the pot to help reduce the amount of steam let out into the air.
  3. Raise blinds slightly so air can circulate at the windows to help dry out any moisture that accumulates because of condensation. You’ll want to keep an eye on your window sills and wipe up an excess water to avoid damaging the sills.

Finishing a Basement Adds Value to Your Home

Finishing a Basement Adds Value to Your Home

For a homeowner, finishing the basement is one of the easiest ways to add more living space to a home. Your family will enjoy the space, and you will increase the value of your home. But finishing a basement takes time and money. It’s not really a DIY project. As one of the best builders in Maryville TN, Debuty Builders Inc. can help make your basement into valued added living space.

Finishing the Basement

There are many reasons why finishing your basement is the right choice for your family. Listed below are reasons why you might want to consider this as an option for your home:

  • Entertaining family and friends.
  • Many families love to put a mini-kitchen in their finished basement for easy access to food and drink. Additionally, a finished basement is the perfect place for pool tables and home theaters.
  • Working from home.
    Because of the COVID pandemic, many companies allow their workers to work from home. If you do not have a quiet space for your office, your basement may be the most cost-effective solution.
  • Providing a dedicated playroom.
    As your family grows and the children age, the toys increase in both size and number. Finishing your basement not only gives your children a playroom, but it allows the main house to remain clutter-free.
  • Homeschooling.
    For the past two years many homes became classrooms. A finished basement allows a quiet place for study with space for school supplies.
  • Accommodating guests.
    Whether it is a mother, guest, or kid back from college, a bedroom in the finished basement gives everyone their own private space.

Simply adding more square footage to the home also is one huge reason. With some basements going ahead and finishing it out can almost double square footage. This is optimal for both family sanity and for resale value!


As you can see, there are many ways finishing your basement adds value to your home.  If you are doing new construction or remodeling, Debuty Builders Inc. in Maryville, TN is here to help you reach your goals!

Keep Resale in Mind

When it comes to remodeling, there’s no shortage of great design advice. Kathie Maughan Francis, principal and founder of Maughan Design, Inc. in Portland, Oregon, says it’s important to design with resale in mind if you’re planning to stay in your home five years or fewer. “If you’re planning to stay more than seven years, design your room for yourself. The look will consider dated by the time you put the home on the market,” she says.

Pamper Yourself

Unless you’re a fan of luxuriating in a bath on a regular basis, skip the whirlpool tub. A vertical spa can achieve close to a full-body massage with its vertically aligned water jets along your shower wall. If you have no time for a bath, think about updating your bathroom with something you’ll use and notice every day, such as a luxury shower with dual heads. For cleanliness, convenience, and efficient water usage, choose an electronic faucet. This will make the most of its practical benefits.

Trade a Built-In Desk for Cabinetry

Often tucked into nooks in the kitchen, a planning desk functions as a message center for a busy family. It’s a handy spot for handling messages, mail, and bills. “In a kitchen, people insist on putting planning desks in. No one ever sits there and plans anything,” says Michael Cordonnier of Remodeling Designs in Dayton, Ohio. Consider whether you’d benefit more from additional cabinets or a pantry before you put in a desk.

Connect Spaces

Looking for a home renovation project with a big impact? Opening up walls and hallways is one way to get the most from your remodel and create more livable spaces. To make open floor plans work, each area of your home should carry one or more style elements over into the next room. Paint all adjoining walls and architectural details the same color so as not to disrupt the visual flow.

Don’t Share the Mudroom

Everyone wants a main-floor laundry room. For smaller homes, an organized laundry room-mudroom combo can be ideal. If it’s squeezed into a tiny area near the garage, though, homeowners often are unhappy in the long run. Bob Near of Lake Country Builders in Excelsior, Minnesota. He advises owners to create separate mudroom and laundry room areas, even if that means moving the laundry room to the basement.

Know What You’re Getting Into

Sure, remodeling is exciting. But there’s also a lot of frustration as you encounter unexpected snags, delays, and the inevitable inconveniences that come from living in a construction zone. You’ll handle the lows better if you know they’re coming. A reputable remodeler will condition your expectations before a project begins.

Create a Temporary Kitchen

Speaking of lows, it can’t get much worse than living without a kitchen for weeks on end. Minimize inconvenience by setting up a temporary kitchen away from the construction area. Include a refrigerator and microwave oven, so you can continue to make light meals at home. The dining room, family room, or other adjacent area is likely the best candidate for this role.

Pack Away Your Valuables

“A remodeling project is going to affect every room in the house,” says A. J. Paron-Wildes, general manager of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. “The homeowners need to take down pictures, move vases, and pack away valuables before work begins.” While you’re at it, take steps to protect your immovable fixtures, including built-in cabinets and chandeliers. Have flooring covered with cardboard sheets if it needs to stay in good condition.

Communicate Effectively

Remodelers can do some amazing things, but they can’t read minds. “Let the company supervisor or project lead person know if anything is unsatisfactory so they can deal with the issue,” says Jeff Hurst, a Certified Remodeler (CR) and president of Hurst Total Home, Inc., in Kettering, Ohio. “The contractor may not be aware that something is not OK with the owner.” Before you start a project, you and your contractor should exchange phone numbers for calling or texting as well as email addresses. Keep in mind that you’re probably not the contractor’s only client, so they may not return calls and emails within minutes.
