Cheektowaga, NY (PressExposure) July 10, 2008 -- The service works in conjunction with a DirectBuy membership. DirectBuy members can buy many of the materials for their new home at the manufacturerâs price, without the typical contractorâs markup. Those materials not available at the manufacturerâs price are still available to members at the discounted contractorâs price.
By working with Keenan 2000 Development as their own personal construction consultant, DirectBuy members also have a resource to arrange construction financing, hire all the required subcontractors, attain necessary permitting, and have an on site manager from start to finish. All thatâs required of the consumer is to provide the designs and retain a contractorâs insurance policy, two things Keenan 2000 Development can help with as well.
âConsumers pay the markup on materials and labor because, essentially, they donât have the skills to do it themselves. With our âBe Your Own General Contractorâ program, you can build your own customized home without knowing the difference between a flathead or a Phillips screwdriver,â said Chris Banks, Keenan 2000 CEO and project coordinator.
Working with their construction consultant, the consumer selects the items he or she wants for his or her homeâe.g. windows, cabinets, flooring, etc.âas part of creating the estimate. That all but eliminates going over budget for any one phase of the construction.
âWhen youâre custom-building a home the traditional way, most contractors will offer a certain package that gives you X number of choices. For example, a bronze package at $150 per square foot might only allow you two styles of windows. So, if you want a higher grade of window or additional choices, you need to move up to the silver package at $175 per square foot, even if everything else remains the same. With the DirectBuy program, we comprise the estimate based on what you want so thereâs very little chance of going over budget,â said Banks.
Besides helping coordinate the construction, the âBe Your Own General Contractorâ program offers assistance in attaining financing for your construction project. Only DirectBuy of Buffalo members are eligible for the âBe Your Own General Contractorâ program.
