Dunning Custom Homes provides professional, award-winning construction and remodeling services for homes in established communities in Chatham and Orange Counties, NC.
As homes in the Triangle area of North Carolina begin to age, the needs for qualified general contractors who provide home remodeling and home renovation services increase. Since this segment of the construction industry is where Dunning Custom Homes began 25 years ago, it is something we take pride in offering. Our home renovation projects have ranged from gourmet kitchen remodeling, to outdoor living and screened porches, to full tear downs and home rebuilding of dated homes.
New home construction and home remodeling/renovation require a very different approach. General contractors and sub contractors that are geared and trained only in new construction cannot easily transition into this segment of the industry. Our team is comfortable in either, and have had continued success in accommodating owners in both.
Needing a home office, sunroom, trendy first floor master suite, or additional garage bays? Dunning Custom Homes can accommodate all of these needs and more! Our expertise allows us to protect our owners from running into issues like encroaching on setbacks, damaging neighborhood utilities or not anticipating how the new addition will tie into the surrounding properties. Leave these worries to us. We have successfully overcome all of these and more to deliver a project that is seamless within its surroundings.
It is hard to leave a community you love and are a part of, simply because you have outgrown your home. Our full home renovation service allows you to have both. Our team is geared to determine and provide solutions for all pre-construction engineering and design issues to allow us to minimize the impact on the existing property and surrounding neighborhood. You can have your dream home without leaving your memories behind.
We sometimes find our dream community offering the perfect schools, strong proximity to our careers, along with an excellent quality of life and climate. The only part of the scenario we cannot locate is the perfect match in a home. In this situation a prospective buyer can try to find an older home that offers a great property, but not much else worth saving. If the value of the surrounding area supports this type of renovation, it can provide a path to the perfect long term home ownership scenario.
Once this decision is made by a buyer, it is important to choose a general contracting firm that is experienced with the many phases of this unique niche of home building. There are many pitfalls for an in-experienced GC if they are not familiar with the numerous town regulations and guidelines, as well as the challenges that site logistics can present in a quiet, older community. This is not a project for a home builder who strictly constructs new homes.
The president of Dunning Custom Homes John Dunning, began in the industry strictly in the remodeling/renovation segment. He was lucky enough to learn from a true craftsman who was meticulous in ever phase from cleanup to carpentry. 25 years later they have complete countless successful remodels, large and small, as well as many large tear downs and rebuilds in the town of Chapel Hill, as well as in the surrounding Chatham county area.
