Meet the Custom Homes Team


At Wardell Builders the excitement truly is building! Our team works to create our clients’ dreams with an emphasis on sustainability and our clients’ health. We commit ourselves to completing custom homes that exceed expectations while being both on time and on budget.

All of our projects use a foreman or superintendent to keep the quality and progress on track. Many members of our team have worked together for more than 15 years and we believe our work is a reflection of that experience. Every project brings new lessons and strategies that we carry forward. Still, our team members are encouraged to continually keep learning and growing professionally. From building conferences to green-rated courses, to industry training sessions we ensure our team is on the cutting edge of building techniques and innovative technologies. We believe our extensive experience is the reason we build beautiful homes while paying complete attention to every detail.

The Process


Get Inspired
We have been given the opportunity to work on a range of houses all over San Diego. We have experience in various styles and building materials and would like to share our previous projects with you to get your creative juices flowing. Take a look at some of our recent work and see what fits your personal taste. At Wardell, we are confident you will have an unparalleled experience with our excellent craftsmanship and all-encompassing service. We look forward to putting our collective expertise and passion to work for you!
Pre-Construction
This is the phase where we figure out your vision for your home and determine a schedule and budget. We cover the desired materials, service and equipment to give you the most accurate cost estimate possible. By bringing our team into the process early many cost issues can be avoided altogether by incorporating value engineering. By making adjustments to your plans or the materials you are using for your home we can cut costs without impacting its look or functionality. Our job is to implement the vision you, your architect and designer have all the while honoring your budget. Next, we determine a schedule of how long it will take to get the work done and the necessary steps we need to take.
Construction
Construction is where any demolition begins and new materials are delivered. The project manager is strict with staying on the agreed schedule and stays in close communication with everyone on the project to determine any changes. We like to hold progress meetings and maintain daily project status reports online to ensure everyone has full disclosure of the project's progress. Efficiency saves substantial expense and energy when building custom homes. This is one of the many areas that highlight the Wardell difference.
Coming Home
You will see our quality standards guarantee play out when you do the final walk-through with one of our construction supervisors. From highly-detailed punch lists to practical instructions on how to maintain your home, we work to make sure your home's excellent craftsmanship and our all-encompassing service deliver value.
Beyond the Build
This is what sets Wardell Builders apart. We don't just build homes - we build life-long relationships by making sure your home exceeds your expectations, beyond turning over the keys. Our clients can take comfort in our warranty - for years to come our maintenance and repair division is happy to assist you with quality care and maintenance of your home.
