Finding the Best Architect for Your Home

Finding the right architect is about finding what matters to you. By understanding what motivates your home project, the right architect will create work that meets your goals for design, details and budget. The right architect will essentially make a project come to life. As part of our Design-Build service, Comstock Residential Contracting will match you up with the architect that will best suit their needs.

Not every architect in Westchester or Fairfield is right for every job. There are differences between each architect’s style, capabilities and price that can make them the wrong or right choice for you and your project. Many people are referred to architects that don’t share their vision or respect their budget.

The Difference the Right Architect Can Make

Over the past several decades, Comstock has worked with and has built relationships with many of the area’s architects.  Some of these architects are appropriate for clients with less design-heavy objectives and others are more appropriate for clients with larger budgets and who are seeking high design.  Finding the right architect for you, your personality, your project and your budget can be a difficult and daunting process.  Many people do not know where to start and will get architectural recommendations from friends.

At Comstock we make architectural recommendations only after meeting with our new clients at length to identify needs, goals, budgets and the level of detail and finish quality sought.  Because we have relationships with architects at all price points, and because we make the effort to understand the client and the project requirements, we are uniquely positioned to suggest candidates and have a high degree of success in matching our clients with the right architect for them.

Deciphering Architectural Plans

Once you have an architect working for you, it can be hard to figure out what they want to do. When a plan comes back to you, it’s little more than a beautifully rendered architectural drawing. Without a construction management partner, it’s up to you to figure out the logistics of the build, the materials and the costs associated with all of this.

As part of our ongoing construction management and hands-on service, Comstock Residential Contracting can figure that out for you. We’ll provide detailed specifications for the materials required to complete the project, filling in the blanks in the architectural design. We speak architect and can help you decode what the drawings mean for your plans with material options that fit within your budget.

Throughout the process, Comstock will be your advocate to make sure your dream doesn’t exceed your budget.
