The “Alaimo Home” Difference

Alaimo Custom Homes

This is the most important page on our site.  At Legends, our standards are what make us different.  We encourage you to compare, but please make sure you are comparing “apples to apples”.

Cost for average 2000 Sq.ft. two story home.

Granite Kitchen Counters!
One of the many reasons that an Alaimo Home is above the rest!


Silent Floor System with TJI floor joist and 3/4″ Edge Gold underlayment, squeak free guarantee.
2″x10″ joist with 5/8″ plywood meets code and is what other builders offer, but results in squeaking and crowned floors.


All 6′ and wider headers are Microlam LVL or LSL laminated beams.
2″x10″ and 2″ x 8″ wide headers can move, shrink and warp. Why take a chance?


Central Air Conditioning and Gas Fireplace.
These are probably the most requested options and they’re standard here. 


Ceramic tile throughout foyer, kitchen, dinette, laundry room and all baths.
Linoleum is what most builders offer as standard but even upgraded linoleum is not durable.


White Semi Gloss Paint on all trim to contrast with wall colors.
This is the look most people want.  Why should you pay extra?


6 Year Power vent hot water tank and 96.5% hi efficiency furnace, no flue to waste energy.
Who wants a 4″- 8″ round pipe sending hot air outside all winter and only a 6 year water tank?


Fan lights in bathrooms and powder room, included even if the room has a window.
These rooms should vent moisture outside in the winter as well as the summer.


Energy Star Appliances.
All appliances we provide will be “Energy Star Rated”


Recessed Door Chime.
One of those items that should be heard and not seen.


8′ (12 course equivalent)  Steel reinforced, solid concrete foundation walls.
Not concrete block. Basements that are up 40 times stronger than block & drier.. A dry basement is very important & should not be optional.


4000 psi fibermesh concrete for porch floor and garage floor.
3000 psi meets code but we want to make sure that floor doesn’t move.


18  20′-1/2″ reinforcing rods under garage and porch floor.
Another measure to make sure the floors don’t move.


Blacktop Driveway & Landscaping Credit
These two items give a new section of homes a completed feeling and keep property value up.

As you may remember, building a home was a “Bucket list” item for us. With a new home build, we were able to get the floor plan we envisioned in a great neighborhood. It was a big decision to build – so many people told us it would be a nightmare to build – but with you it was a wonderful and clearly stated collaborative process- thanks to: • your accessibility and incredibly fast response to our initial questions • your guidance from the initial contract meeting and initial planning meeting • your accessibility and incredibly fast ongoing response to our questions throughout the process • your thoughts during each walk through to insure all as we planned was in place before the finished product • and also thanks to Terri’s help with the original sale and ongoing questions we had We truly love our new home and loved working with you. You provide service before the sale, during the build and are committed to continued service after the sale, and when it is needed. Your integrity before the sale was important to our decision – and it showed throughout the process. JoAnne Fournier and Mary Jo Brenner
“All my friends told me to beware about the nightmares associated with building, well at final walk through I told Mr. Alaimo my friends now tell me they don’t want to hear any more about how great my experience was. I guess they’re jealous.” Doreen Watson
