What our clients say
  • Trust-Worthy
    Worth Calfee

    Building a home is a significant and daunting endeavor. A Home-building Contractor serves as the guide through this adventure. It is therefore paramount to have a home-builder that is Trust-Worthy and Competent. Bill Cotton, and the entire Cotton Custom Home Team, are exactly that! We feel so fortunate to have found Cotton Custom homes, not by coincidence, but by a well-deserved referral. Cotton Custom homes converted 3 years of planning and blueprints we provided them into our dream home. Every detail, every feature was handled with utmost attention and Care. There were no surprises, no hidden fees, and no mistakes found at the completion of the project. We were able to finish our home “on-time” and “under-budget”! I would not hesitate one second to recommended Cotton Custom homes to any of my friends or family.

  • Professional Process
    Steve Lovell

    We wanted to extend a huge thank you to Bill Cotton and his crew at Cotton Custom Homes in Apex NC. After interviewing 9 builders we picked Cotton Homes based on client reviews, industry experience and professional process. Bill has the ability to listen and understand your desires and scope that into a realistic budget. It isn’t everyday that people get a chance to build their home. It is a big undertaking both mentally and financially so selecting a builder can be risky. Building with Cotton Custom Homes was a delightful experience as Bill kept us on budget, offered key feature ideas and managed the project with his online software. After our build was over and our keys handed to us, we both said “we could do this again” with Bill by our side. Alas we are here to stay. Love our home, the process and the people we met through Bill along the way. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

  • Extremely Cautious
    Kathy Montero

    My husband and I had never built a house before, but through good fortune, contacted Bill Cotton to build a custom multi-generational home to meet our dynamic long term needs. Because we had heard so many horror stories about the home building process, we were extremely cautious and skeptical. However, Bill, Tim and Anita have earned our trust and respect. Everyone throughout the project was responsive, honest, helpful and sincere. It truly felt like a collaborative process and that we were included as part of the team. Our new home is magnificent and has many basics that other builders consider upgrades (wainscoting, custom carpentry, energy efficient rating, etc).
    The Cotton team managed the scheduling and various crews very well – most everyday someone was working on something at the job site with little idle time. There were no unexpected additional costs, our home was finished on schedule and has exceeded our expectations. This is how building a new home should be.
