K&V Homes was established in January 1997 as a collaboration between two high school classmates, each having gone their own way to pursue further education and then reuniting to initiate a career in homebuilding. Dean graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Finance and Colin graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Civil Engineering. These degrees created a solid foundation for their next step as respected homebuilders in the Des Moines metropolitan area.
Prior to their homebuilding venture, both Dean and Colin worked as framers, constructing houses for other homebuilders. Today, Colin and Dean use their education, over 50 years of combined residential construction experience, and designations as Graduate Master Builders to build the highest quality custom homes.
Having won several awards for past HomeShowExpo houses demonstrates the quality, craftsmanship, and pride that are a part of each and every K&V home.
Dean and Colin address not only personal tastes in the homes they build, but also functionality. Attention to every detail allows K&V Homes to design and build homes that are truly unique. To obtain the best results, they encourage their homeowners to be involved throughout the process. Several walkthroughs are scheduled throughout the process to ensure that all details are being addressed and that the house is progressing to the homeowner’s satisfaction. Building a new home can be overwhelming to some, but Colin and Dean strive to make the building process enjoyable. Offering suggestions and advice, sharing examples of previously built homes and connecting the homeowner with their team of trades and vendors are just a few of the amenities of building with K&V Homes.
K&V Homes takes great pride in the time and talent of all persons involved with the construction of their houses. Should any problems arise, Colin and Dean include the following with each home purchase:
K&V Homes honors a one year warranty from the time of closing. At the end of one year, the homeowner is asked to compile a list of items to be addressed. Either Dean or Colin will meet with them personally to review this list. Most items will be completed by Dean or Colin. However, should the item fall outside of their realm, another trades person will be notified to rectify the situation.
Prior to the one year walkthrough, any emergency items can be addressed by notifying one of the trained professionals on the K&V Homes Emergency Contact list. In addition to this, the homeowner may compile a list of 6-10 items and notify K&V Homes of this list. At this time, either Dean or Colin will meet with them to review the list, and, as mentioned above, either address the item(s) or notify the appropriate trades person.
All interior equipment (appliances, mechanicals, etc.) will present with their own warranty time and disclosures.
Regardless of the situation, the homeowner should feel free to contact either Dean or Colin with any questions or concerns.
As a homeowner, you are entitled to live in your house without worrying about how to contact your builder.
K&V Homes strives to maintain this philosophy by keeping the lines of communication open at all times. Colin and Dean work to establish a unique relationship with each homebuyer.
After the one year warranty has expired, Dean and Colin want you to consider them a resource for all of your questions concerning your home. From a general maintenance issue to a new project, they are available to assist you in any way they can.
