The Benefits of Building a Custom Home

As the housing market and the economy in general have recovered in the past few years, Americans are expanding their horizons when it comes to home ownership. Though older houses are still a popular option, there has been a greater shift toward custom-built homes, and for good reason. Building a new home provides a great many number of advantages, including:

Total Control

Older homes often require some sort of renovation to meet the buyer’s exact desires and demands. With a custom-built house, you are in complete control, down to the type of wood used for the fireplace mantel. No decision is out of your hands. When your new home is complete, you have the assurance that it is exactly what you dreamed it would be.

Less Costly

Buying a home is a major investment. It may seem like it’s cheaper to buy an older home, and upfront, it may be. But many older homes require much more upkeep and repairs than a custom-built one. Instead of spending your Saturday dealing with foundational problems or fixing a fidgety sink, which cost time and money, you can instead enjoy the day with your family, knowing your custom-built home is problem-free.

More Energy-Efficient

One of the major costs of older homes is energy inefficiency. From the refrigerator that consumes way too much energy to poor insulation that leaks air conditioning, an energy-inefficient home may as well be burning money. With a custom-built home, the latest construction techniques, as well as brand new appliances, ensure your home is energy-efficient, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars every year.

A Place to Call Home

Whether you rent or buy an older home, it may be tough to really see it as your own. With a custom-built house, you have the peace of mind that you are the only family to make memories there. It is truly a home for you and your children, one that can be cherished for generations. Your custom home will be like no other, unique to your family alone. Brackettry Custom Homes can make this dream a reality. If you live in Cecil County or Harford County, we are ready to work with you on your new home.

New Construction

Custom Home Building

Brackettry Custom Homes Builds new construction houses using state of the art building science driven technologies.


Poured Wall Foundations with Waterproofing and interior and exterior drains - Keeping water out of your basement and preventing further costs down the road. Also providing a solid base that will not crack and shift like block foundations.

Engineered Lumber

Engineered lumber as joists provides a flat and level floor due to every board being the same as the board next to it, unlike conventional lumber.


Advantech subfloor with adhesives - Advantech 3/4 subfloor is glued and screwed with its patented adhesives to creates a strong, flat, and squeak free floor.

Zip System

Zip system sheathing is like standard OSB sheeting. However, it has a factory fluid applied member that is applied to it. This, in conjunction with zip tape makes your new house a completely sealed membrane against the elements. Air, Water, and insects are the 3 things that destroy a house. The Zip System prevents that damage.

Air Sealing

Air Sealing - All houses are Air sealed in the walls and attic to prevent energy efficiency from literally seeping through the cracks. We use top of the line insulation in addition to the air seal to create an insulated home which won't kill your electric bill.

Personal Service

Personal Service - Unfortunately, with a chain builder you're not working with the owner of the company and skilled carpenters to create your home. Its being subcontracted out and built for speed, not quality. Here at Brackettry Custom Homes you work closely with the owner to get the house of your dreams. Daryl and his employees physically do the work to exceed all expectations.
