GH Builders Launches “Design Your GH Home Online” Interactive Portal

By | GH Builders Technology

New Feature Allows Home Buyers to Customize Their New Home Instantly at ghbuildersnaples.com

Naples, Florida, September 17th, 2019– Southwest Florida home builder GH Builders, created by Gulfstream Homes, announces the launch of its “Design Your GH Home Online” Interactive Portal now available on their website. The home builder specializes in providing the cost-conscious home buyer with a first-class, value driven home building experience in Golden Gate Estates. Through a more interactive process, buyers can be more involved in the building of their home.

The “Design Your GH Home Online” Interactive Portal offers a new level of transparency to the home building process. By clicking on an available floorplan, potential clients can build their home with the click of a mouse, watching the floorplan transform right on their screen. Floorplans can be altered with up to 30 structural changes on some plans, and there are over 900 possible selection combinations in one floorplan alone. Not only does this give clients the chance to customize their home exactly how they desire, the program also populates a price, so that clients know what they can expect to pay for their new home from a structural standpoint.

Spearheaded by the GH Builders team with the partnership of web designer Terry McKyton with TCMC Interactive, a revolutionary new way to customize a home virtually has emerged. Customers make their selections in the comfort of their own home, eliminating the pressure and risk associated with selecting these options without seeing the finished product first. Prospects and clients can send their plan directly to GH Builders, making for a more streamlined process. GH Builders’ complete transparency (www.ghbuildersnaples.com) makes it easy for clients to know what they can afford before embarking on their home building endeavor.

Chris Ghannam, Operations Manager with GH Builders, speaks about the program and how GH Builders seeks to provide even more value to their buyers.

We want our clients to feel more included in the home building process. Instead of worrying over how a certain selection is going to impact the space or the price, clients are now able to see it in real-time. This is just another added value to our clients and it really helps to open up the dialogue at our initial meetings, because now they know what they can achieve with our services. This is made possible through our partnership with TCMC Interactive. Working with Terry [McKyton] helped to make this project a reality as he was willing to push the envelope and try something that has never been done before,” he explains.

McKyton explains the process and the outcome of the service.

The [GH Builders] team really knew what they wanted to accomplish, and it all came down to figuring out how this was going to work with the artist’s renderings and the conditional logic of the floorplans. We’re really happy with how this program turned out. Everyone I’ve showed this to has been really impressed, and I really think clients will be as well,” he says.

Tips for Getting Your Home Hurricane-Ready

By | New Homes

In light of recent events, many homeowners have been prompted to re-evaluate their current hurricane preparedness plan. Even though we haven’t experienced a hurricane this season, it doesn’t mean that we can forget about proper hurricane prep, making sure that our home is ready to stand up against anything that comes our way. When we consider how to prepare for a hurricane, protecting our families comes to mind first, which means that a properly protected home is crucial. Whether you’re building a new home or you simply want to safeguard your current home against inclement weather, we can help. Here are some of our top tips for getting your home hurricane-ready.

Invest in Proper Hurricane Protection

Don’t wait until a hurricane is barreling toward us to start thinking about getting proper hurricane protection for your home. At this point, many manufacturers have a wait list and products will not arrive on time. The key to being ready for a hurricane is always being prepared. If you’re building a custom home from the ground up, you may want to consider impact-resistant windows or getting metal storm panels fitted to your windows. Many homeowners like the idea of impact glass, simply because there isn’t any installation time. Your protection is always there. Homeowners also like storm panels, since they’re not difficult to install, but it’s important to work with a qualified provider to ensure that they fit your windows perfectly. Other forms of hurricane protection for your home include:

  • Accordion shutters

  • Rolldown shutters

  • Hurricane fabric

All of these products are specially fitted to your windows to ensure a tight seal, protecting your home from wind, rain and flying debris during a hurricane.

Do a Little Spring Cleaning

It doesn’t have to be spring to clean out your gutters to ensure that they’re working properly. After all, if there is too much debris in your gutters, water will not flow off of the home like it should, which can cause problems during the heavy rain we tend to experience during a hurricane. You will also want to be sure that your windows and doors have an adequate seal around them. If not, moisture can sneak in during a heavy rainfall, so caulking around these areas is important.

Have a Hurricane Kit and Plan At the Ready

Your hurricane kit will need to include helpful items that will get you through a few days without power. Compiling a kit now will help you save time and worry later, and it can be easily stored so that it is readily available at storm time. You’ll need to include items like:

  • Flashlights

  • Extra batteries

  • Canned food

  • Plenty of water

It’s also important to know your evacuation route if you should need it. This is especially important if you’re moving into a new house that may be in a different area of town than you’re used to. Be sure to read up on proper evacuation procedures, so that you’re not lost if and when the time comes to leave.

Storm-Proofing Your Home

Here in Southwest Florida, we can’t be too careful during hurricane season. That’s why it’s imperative to protect your home and make it the safest it can be, so that you and your family can stay safe and protected. We may have lucked out this time, but we’re not out of the woods yet. Devastating storms can come crashing onto our shores at any moment, so storm-proof your home for the sake of your family’s safety and keep these tips in mind. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
