Many times, homeowners have a difficult time distinguishing the differences between homebuilders and general contractors -- they seem to repeat the same question, "How do you select the right general contractor for your project? At McIntyre Contracting Inc., we distinguish ourselves with our attention to exacting detail and our unique design build process.
We simplify the homebuilding process by streamlining and consolidating the entire process: Throughout the entire process you are dealing with a single point of contact responsible for all aspects of design and construction. As the Design / Builder, we are uniquely qualified to not only design and build your dream home or handle your renovation, but most importantly we ensure that your project is built within your budget.
Other builders claim to be "design/build," which basically means they meet with you, take a deposit, and then send you off to an architect or designer to work with you on the plans. This approach creates conflicts right from the start which will lead to unusually long design time, numerous revisions, and cost overruns once construction begins. Instead, we work directly with you from concept to completion of plans, and into construction.
When you choose McIntyre Contracting Inc., you will never be sent to an outside designer who may or may not be able to capture your vision and then properly articulate the process to completion. John McIntyre will oversee the entire process as your plans are drawn and each detail is decided to ensure that your homebuilding experience is efficient, economical and free from confusion or concern.

Client accepted recommendation of the architect and it took about a year to receive the permit and bid the job. The job was competively bid and client selected McIntyre Contracting Inc. It took some time to procure the permit because it was the 1st year that the Town of Hempstead adopted the Energy Star requirements for new home construction. A complete set of engineered mechanical plans and spec's were submitted with the architect's plans delaying the review process. The client lives in New Jersey, so communication via phone, text and Email is on a regular basis with visits usually every other week. The job was performed as per a construction contract including a standard template, specifications and progressive payment schedule. All inspections, surveys and energy star rating tests are arranged by McIntyre Contracting Inc. We continue to have an excellent working relationship with client and if there is ever a problem, then we address it immediately.
