Residential New Construction

When selecting a contractor to build your home you want to make sure you are choosing the best you can afford. The same way you wouldn’t choose the cheapest surgeon you can find to perform your heart surgery, you shouldn’t pick your builder just based on price.

Your ideal home builder or General Contractor should be somebody with a great reputation for building quality homes on time and within budget. We are your go to source for custom home builds in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and all of Northeast Florida.

At Smarter Remodeling we pride ourselves in pricing every residential construction project upfront to avoid surprises while the build is ongoing. This approach might seem to produce higher priced projects but it’s only because our proposals will include many details other builders prefer to leave out of the initial estimate to appear to be cheaper. Inevitably, those details will appear in the form of change orders that will increase the price sometimes up to 50% more than their original estimate.

Custom Home Builder

We have an ample selection of cabinets, Countertops, plumbing fixtures, paint colors, Windows, doors and flooring for you to select every detail of your new home.

We start the process by creating a proposal that will fit your budget. Then we will move to get your drawings ready so we can work with you in all the details of your new home. Once the drawings are finalized and approved by you we will submit for permits.

While we wait for permits we continue with the process by creating a tentative schedule that will become final once all the details are approved. We will grant you access to our online platform where you will able to see not only the schedule but your entire project including any change orders, material selections, pictures, plans and all communication in one central place.

By the time the plans are approved all your selections are done and we are ready to start building your house. We will maintain open communication during the entire process so you know exactly where we are in the process.

Once you house is built we will provide you with a folder, or a digital file, containing all the information about your warranties, product selection and other useful information so you can keep up with maintenance items and keep you home running efficiently.

Building your dream home shouldn’t be hard. Contact us and see why we are the area’s premier custom home builder.

Venci Danailov
Fabian Videla and the Smarter Remodeling team are the most responsive, honest and comprehensive remodeling contractors I have ever had the pleasure of working with or recommending. Whether it is for windows, kitchen remodeling, electrical and AC, or room additions, I have always found them to be attentive and ready to explain where they are at in the process, or make a better suggestion, whenever I had a question. I also have used them several times on projects at the beaches and in the Historic District with my clients and friends, many of whom will hire them for one project, then call them later to do another remodel or upgrade. An additional bonus is the high level of technical expertise used in collaborating with homeowners to assist in visualizing the final design and aesthetics as well as the importance Fabian places upon job cost accuracy from day one. Their patient and relaxed approach from inception through the final punch list is a huge plus in today’s fast paced contracting environment, and provides a degree of comfort and confidence that makes them a clear and trusted partner.

Smarter Remodeling does the job the right way! They know what is required for the project and include everything needed in the estimate. They do not leave things out of an estimate that are needed for the project just to give you a smaller estimate...only to hit you up later with change orders that jack up the price. They are knowledgeable, honest and professional...and they can help you achieve the lasting impression you desire from your remodeling project.
Hunter Malin

Commercial work can be very technical, but it was one thing after another. There was no hiccups, there were no problems and it was under budget. Fabian really saved us, big time. I'm happy as can be, and honestly, I thank Fabian.

From the first time, Fabian came in and gave me his ideas and I felt so comfortable with him. He knew all the processes. We know other people that have had work done with serious complaints. We have been able to say that we did not have that experience.
