“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.”

“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.”

“We moved from Maryland to Apex and by chance happened to find Bill after looking at many homes in other developments that we were not impressed by. After touring several homes that Bill had built and speaking with the homeowners, we knew that we had found the right builder. The attention to detail, quality of materials, delivery before scheduled completion and excellent communication between Bill and ourselves added to our overall satisfaction. Bill kept us up to date on the construction process, answered all our concerns in a timely manner, and assisted us in choosing the materials that went into our home.”

“My husband and I had been searching for a location to build our new home. When we finally decided on Villages of Apex it was in part due to the style of homes. I loved the fact that they weren’t all “cookie cutter” and having custom builders gave it that individual uniqueness. I knew I found our builder when all the homes that stuck out for me were all built by Bill Cotton and after meeting him, it was obvious that we had struck GOLD!! We were hesitant to build again after a negative building experience with our first home and knowing we would have to do this from long distance while our son finished out school added to our concern. From day one though, Bill and his superb team made us feel at ease. Excellent communication throughout and any questions were answered in a timely manner. His attention to detail showed in every room. We always felt a part of the whole process and at the end of it all were given the keys to a beautiful home that we couldn’t be more proud of. We don’t just consider Bill Cotton our builder; we are honored to consider him our friend.”

“The thing that comes to mind is Integrity and painstaking devotion to quality workmanship. From the time I first met Bill while the house was still in mid production I knew that Bill’s committment to his customers was top rate. There are so many things that has helped make his vision our home from the orientation of the house to the detailed trim. Little things that help keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter like orientation so sun doesn’t come in, blown insulation, creative heating/cooling systems, placement of cutoff valves to the aesthetics from high vaulted ceilings, magnificent trim work, and a flowing design that is both efficient and eye pleasing.

Even when items popped up during the breaking period of the house settling, Bill was responsive and the items were corrected. I have enjoyed working with Bill and look forward to many happy years in our home.”

“Bill Cotton is nothing short of “perfect”. Building with Cotton Custom Homes was a wonderful experience. I had always dreamed of building a custom home and it was exciting every step of the way. Beyond Bill’s expert craftsmanship, are his honesty, integrity, and strong code of ethics. These aspects of his character contribute to each step of the building process, from the day you commence until the finished product is unveiled. The superior quality of workmanship he expects from himself and his subs produces a beautiful and flawless home. Bill was patient with me as we worked through the design phase, enabling me to have all the features in a home that I desired as well as many I didn’t even know were possible! His ability to hone in on my design style enabled him to make suggestions and recommendations that perfectly suited me. He gave me a gorgeous home that I will be able to enjoy for many years to come.”
