Client Testimonial

“My husband and I purchased our first new home from CreekStone Custom Homes and are thrilled with their superior customer service and construction. In today’s market, we’ve heard so many heart breaking stories of builders who disappear and who don’t follow through with their promises which made us very skeptical of purchasing a new home. Jerry Severa, Owner/Contractor, for CreekStone Custom Homes is truly the exception to the rule, he is the epitome of home builders! He is a true man of integrity who really cares about the Home Owner even after the initial purchase! I never had to make repeated calls begging him to follow up on any of our concerns even after our warranty expired! Instead, he resolved any question or issue immediately and kept us informed each step of the way. We have several friends who have experienced serious construction issues including lack of support from their builders and we are very thankful that CreekStone Custom Homes built our home! Simply, CreekStone Custom Homes really cares about the home owner and the quality of their construction! I never hesitate to refer them to a personal friend or acquaintance because I am confident they will be as thrilled, as we are with their exceptional service and construction.”

How is your business since market conditions have changed?2018-12-31T20:48:34-04:00

CreekStone Custom Homes is as busy today as we were prior to the slow down in the market. A purge in the construction industry has not inhibited our company’s performance in any way, we are actually busier today than in previous years. There are reasons why companies like CreekStone Custom Homes continue to thrive in slow economic times like this.

We believe the primary reason is because we have built our company on a foundation of Honesty, Integrity and Quality. We always put the client first and corporate gain second.

How long has CreekStone Custom Homes been building homes?2018-12-31T20:49:47-04:00

This is the most commonly asked question in the building industry…
The better question to ask your builder is – what was your background prior to becoming a builder?

Do you have any hands on experience such as framing, interior trim or foundation work? An experienced framer is the one person who is the most knowledgeable of residential construction. If your builder’s introduction to the industry started at the closing table, then you should rethink if you have chosen the right person to build your dream home. Many of today’s home builders come from non-construction backgrounds with no actual hands-on-experience of home construction resulting in the poor quality of homes that you often see today!

Jerry Severa, Owner/Builder for CreekStone Custom Homes has over 30 years of hands-on construction experience including framing, interior trim and drywall work. He is a licensed contractor in the state of Georgia and a member in excellent standing with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.

“My wife and I are extremely pleased with the quality job Jerry did on our basement. His attention to detail was very impressive. Jerry was easy to work with and always available to discuss the project. His communication and honesty was refreshing. We have received numerous compliments on our basement from friends and family. I recommended Jerry to my neighbors and they had the same experience that we did.”

Kevin Nicholls | The Manor, Alpharetta, GA

“In 1998, I had my home built by Jerry Severa. He was always there to answer any questions I had and made sure things were going smoothly, I was very happy with the way the house turned out. In 2003, I called Jerry back to do some work on my house. I wanted him to enclose a porch and make it into a office and add on a sunroom. He had some great ideas for me. Jerry’s attention to detail is unbelievable! He does work as if he is doing the work for his own home. I could not have been happier with the outcome of both rooms. There is not one person that comes into my house that doesn’t say what a great job was done on the office and the sunroom and how beautiful it is. I would recommend Jerry to anyone that needs work done in their house or wants to build a custom home. Jerry is a rare find in his line of business.”

Gale Vuocolo | Alpharetta, GA

Attention to detail and commitment to excellence are hallmarks of CreekStone’s customer promise, and the quality of their craftsmanship far exceeds others I’ve encountered in this field. If you’re considering something as important as a home remodel, I highly recommend getting in touch with Jerry Severa of CreekStone Custom Homes.”
