Things to Consider When Building a Waterfront Home

Things to Consider When Building a Waterfront Home

Dreaming of building a custom waterfront home in the Tampa Bay area?

As contractors specializing in waterfront properties, we know from experience the ins and outs of what it takes to build the perfect waterfront home. There are many factors to keep in mind to ensure your home’s success for years to come.

Before You Build

Before you purchase the lot to build your dream home, there is a lot of information that needs to be reviewed. You’ll need to understand the soil, flood plains, slope conditions and erosion history. Any seawalls and bulkheads will need to be carefully inspected to ensure they have been properly maintained. You’ll also need to understand the zoning restrictions for your lot as well as any other specifications or limitations on altering the property.

A septic system will be the first important step in the building process. Before the build actually begins, you’ll want to determine what kind of septic system is right for your soil type. This septic system will also require a drainage plan.

Tips for Building A Waterfront Home

The biggest thing to keep in mind when building a waterfront home is how well it can withstand all that mother nature has to offer. Unfortunately, being the Tampa Bay area, we are subjected to hurricane seasons that can often be long and damaging. Thankfully, when starting from scratch, we’ll be able to help you design a home with the proper materials that can help make your home stronger and more secure. Some of the best practices we follow for waterfront homes are:

  1. Advanced framing systems
  2. Impact-resistant windows and doors
  3. Concrete walls
  4. Optimal roof pitch for wind deflection
  5. Proper drainage to prevent water from entering the home

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
