At P.L. Lyons, one of our core focuses is providing quality workmanship in all the custom homes we build. As a homeowner, one of the largest aspects throughout the homebuilding process is being able to rely on the team of builders that you are entrusting with your home.

From updating you with the details of your project on a weekly basis, to communicating when about your decisions on details, whether early on or with your final furnishings and finishes. It’s YOUR house. YOU always have the final say in our world. Our team desires for the homeowner to be involved throughout every phase of the process.

It’s important for both the building team and homeowners to be transparent throughout the entire home building process. In doing so, both parties feel in-the-know and on the same page.

Ethical and Transparent

One of the main reasons our clients have given us their trust for the past four decades is our commitment to ethical standards. We will never be veiled about the progress, details, or pricing of your home because we know that these are the integral parts that homeowners need know. They are so foundational.

A part of our values at P.L. Lyons Architectural Builders is holding ourselves to a high ethical threshold as builders, as a business, and as people. We want to assure our customers that they can trust us to be open and honest in all aspects of their home project and our conversations with them.

Many contractors will hide important information from the home owners in order to save themselves money or make them pay more than expected because of an error or simply because they didn’t want to disclose it. We value our customer’s trust and will do our very best work in every single scenario to maintain that trust we’ve earned.

But additionally we want it to feel like we’re partnering with YOU. Our first design consultation with you should feel a lot like that. We create sketches and renderings side by side with you.
