New Custom Homes in Montgomery County, Texas
Located in Conroe, Texas, and Montgomery County, Schenck Builders, LLC does not just build custom homes, we
build lifestyles. We understand that a house is not just a home; that it takes on the personality of its owners,
from style and decor to design and function. We work closely with our homeowners to build them a home that is
custom and demonstrates a personal touch that defines who they are, whether they choose to live on a waterfront lot
on Lake Conroe or Montgomery, an acreage lot in Magnolia, or a golf course lot in The Woodlands.
We also want the custom homebuilding process to be as stress free as possible. That is why we handle
everything in the homebuilding process from pulling the Montgomery County, City of Conroe, or Walker County permits
to scheduling inspections with engineers or the City of Conroe. Also, by limiting the number of custom homes
per year we build, we are able to keep the personal touch that our custom home clients deserve through the
construction process. At Schenck Builders, you are not just another name on a contract, you are truly a partner
with us in building your new home.
Additionally, we provide one on one time with a local design specialist who can work with the client to
personalize their custom home. In addition to the customization based on each customer’s individual needs, Schenck
Builders, LLC offers standard custom features that set our homes apart, regardless of whether its a Mediterranean
style waterfront home on Lake Conroe, a Hill Country custom home in Montgomery, or a French Country home in
Whether you choose our plan or yours to build or you work with us to design a custom home, the typical
construction process is as follows:
The lot or homesite is surveyed and staked out as to where the custom home will be located. Tree
removal, and underbrushing are performed as well as stripping of the organic topsoil, which is removed or used
to grade areas around the slab. Depending upon the elevation of the property, select fill is brought in and
compacted in place to give the home foundation to be placed on.
Depending on the design of your home and an independent soil test performed on your lot, a structural engineer
will design your foundation to ensure proper beam depth and cable size and piers if necessary.
Our custom homes are framed on-site, which provides the flexibility to customize and maximize the space and
shape of each home. Only the highest quality framing materials are used on each custom home.
In addition, when constructing a two story, the sub floor is both glued and screwed down to eliminate floor
squeaking. We work in conjunction with our client's inspectors to guarantee that the custom home is constructed to
proper building codes.
Schenck Builders, LLC uses top-of-the-line heating and air conditioning systems with programmable thermostats.
All wiring is copper and sized according to local building code. The plumbing systems that we use are the Vanguard
manabloc system with schedule 40 pvc drain and sewer. Only the highest quality materials are used.
We only use premium composite shingles, metal roofs, or tile roofs depending upon the design. The roof decking
on a Schenck Builders custom home typically has a radiant barrier such as Tech Shield. Because of the additional
cost, this expensive material is not used by most home builders; however, we use radiant barrier decking on all
custom homes because of its high energy efficiency value. On average the radiant barrier keeps attics 20 to 25
degrees cooler, creating a significant savings in utility bills.
We use high-quality, energy-efficient batts and blown insulation as well as spray foam insulation and other
green energy efficient options. We will work with you so that you choose the most affordable and energy efficient
options for your custom home.
All Schenck Builders homes have the highest quality interior finishes available today. From custom texture and
faux finish painting to elaborate trim and custom onsite built cabinetry the options are endless. We work with
local trades from Montgomery County, Texas, whom we have used for years, to create the perfect interior finishes on
your custom home.
Schenck Builders, LLC uses masonry materials on the exterior of every home, including brick, stucco, hardi plank
and stone. We work with you on the choices of your exteriors for your custom home so that it suits you perfectly.
We then shop for the best prices for the materials that you choose. When your custom home is completed, it is a
reflection of you, whether it set on a waterfront lot on Lake Conroe, a sprawling acreage lot in Magnolia, or a
golf course lot in The Woodlands, Texas.
