How long is the building process?
New home construction typically takes 8-9 months from the time we break ground on your home until completion, with one to two months for the design phase. The time varies depending on the size of the house, and weather conditions. Our priority at G&G Custom Homes is to complete your home to our standards before closing -- to ensure that you and your family can enjoy your home from the first day you move in.
What is a high-performance custom home with a ThermoShield program?

What Green building technologies do I incorporate?
At G&G Custom Homes, we ensure that our green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency in every step of the building and development process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of our homes must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and overall environmental impact. For more information, visit the NAHB-National Green Building Program website at www.nahbgreen.org.
What is my online scheduling software?
G&G Custom Homes uses BuilderTrend, a web-based service that allows homeowners to see the building schedule for their home, track spending, view pictures, and communicate with their builder throughout the home-construction process. Visit BuilderTREND for more information.
Where can I get financing?
We have some mortgage lenders and banks we have dealt with in the past that will work with you or bring your own. A good mortgage lender will answer all your questions regarding the borrowing process. Don’t rely on a low interest rate to determine a lender. Compare closing costs and other fees, and ask how the lender will be compensated.
What warranty do I offer?
A home is a major investment and buyers must be secure in the knowledge that the purchase is a good investment, was built by an experienced professional builder, and that quality materials were used. G&G Custom Homes provides a 10-year insured warranty through Residential Warranty Corporation (RWC). Residential Warranty Corporation (RWC) is one of the nation’s oldest and largest providers of written insured warranties on new homes, providing homeowners with a strong foundation of security for their home.
What brand name products do I use?
G&G Custom Homes takes pride in using well-known, high-quality vendors to supply building materials for its custom homes. Our suppliers include Pella & Anderson windows, Therma-Tru Doors, Porter & Sherwin Williams paint, Carrier & Bryant furnaces, Delta & Kohler fixtures, Thermadore & Ge appliances & many more.
What is the building process?
G&G Custom Homes provides their homeowners with a “Better Building Experience.” We accomplish this through BuilderTREND, a web-based service that makes the home building process easier for our customers. Homeowners can track selections online 24/7, easily track spending, access their schedule and budget information, document decisions to eliminate confusion, track warranty items, and look through their portfolio of their home throughout the building process.

Who is the main point of contact?
Joe Garcia is your main contact during the building process. As the owner of G&G Custom Homes, Joe is also the builder, superintendent and point of contact between suppliers/vendors and you, the customer. Joe Garcia and his wife, Mindy take great pride in the relationships they have built with their customers and the knowledge that they create a superior product. Joe sums up his philosophy in saying, "We will not just hand over the keys and walk away; we look forward to building a long lasting relationship with all our clients."
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT G&G:
"We cannot thank Joe and Mindy enough for making the process of buying a new home an experience of a lifetime. From the initial discussions through closing, they were both a pleasure to work with and they exceeded our expectations in every respect. The service, dependability and the flexibility they demonstrated were exceptional throughout the entire process. Their business is sure to prosper and we will readily recommend potential clients who are interested in a custom home or real estate services." - Jon & Kathy W.
"Clearly built quality is critical when searching for a new custom home, however less evident but equally important is the ongoing customer service you will receive later down the line. The attention to detail in Joe's homes is obvious for all to see, but his patience and ongoing support is where he excels. We have been particularly impressed by his personal attention and responsiveness whereby nothing was too much trouble and would have no hesitation in recommending G&G Custom Homes to anyone looking for a high quality product with top notch customer service." - Steve & Debra H.
"We were new to Indianapolis and felt very grateful that we found Joe to be our builder. Joe was masterful at the coordination and sequencing of the details of the construction that were seamless to us. Additionally, reliability of the construction timeline was the other factor that exceeded our expectations; Joe gave us a move date and not only met it but came in 10 days earlier than we expected. Impressive results from a true professional." - Steve & Linda C.
