Meet Your Builder

Before we deliver your home, help us make sure all the details are correct.

You will have 4 meetings with your Patrick Malloy Communities builder.

Pre-Construction Meeting

This is a short 30 minute meeting where you will be introduced to our onsite staff and be shown the house location on the lot you have selected.

Pre-Dryall Meeting – Framewalk

The “Framewalk” takes place once the framing of the house has been completed, and the heating, plumbing and electrical distribution systems are in place. This is an exciting introduction to your new home and an opportunity to view the “bones” of the home. At this time you will review any changes and your personal design center options, as well as outlets and low voltage locations. Because we are moving efficiently to complete your home on time, no further changes will be allowed after the pre-drywall meeting. Plan to spend 1 hour with your Patrick Malloy Communities Representative to walk through your home at this stage of construction.

We will call you directly to schedule your Framewalk, which will take place between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Please Be Cautious

Keeping in mind that your Framewalk takes place in an active construction environment, we ask that you follow these guidelines for your visit:

Please dress appropriately for a construction site and outdoor weather conditions. Patrick Malloy Communities will supply protective headgear and footwear, which MUST be worn at all, times. We are concerned about your children’s safety; therefore they are not allowed to accompany you during this appointment.

If you have any questions before or after your Framewalk, please contact your Site Construction Office or Customer Care Coordinator for further guidance.

Homeowner Orientation

A Homeowner Orientation is a tour and inspection of your new home, taking place approximately 10 days prior to your closing date.

You will be contacted by your on-site Warranty Technician to schedule your Pre-Closing Walk appointment, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday through Fridays.

Your Pre Closing Walk takes between 1 and 2 hours to complete and is your opportunity to:

• Become familiar with the general layout of your new home
• Receive an explanation of the various features and functions of the home
• Learn about general maintenance items of the home (i.e., the furnace, hot water tank, thermostat, fireplace, exhaust fan operation)
• Identify any pre-delivery concerns or deficiencies in your home

Closing Walk

This is your final walk-thru of your new home usually a day before closing. This is a short walkthrough to review any minor repairs that were addressed on your Homeowner Orientation.
