Frequently Asked Questions about Jaggers Construction
Validation Certificates are available to be sent directly to you from our insurance company which is general industry practice – Wyatt Insurance (865-470-9654). We carry Worker’s Compensation (WC-41-015707-00) and General Liability Coverage (Q45 1150494) ($1,000,000 occurrence and $2,000,000 aggregate). As you move forward, we can have these documents sent to you and have your financial institution listed as holder.
An important thing to note about us, we will lock our fee not to exceed the associated fee with this estimated cost to build at the time of estimate. However, if you come in under budget our fee will float down. We do this as a measure of good faith to let you know we do our best to accurately estimate the cost of your new home and to let you know we will not benefit if the cost of your home goes up. However, we will reduce our fee if your home comes in under budget.
We feel good about our estimates. Deron does a very thorough job and likes to get the estimate as accurate as possible. We are confident our suppliers give us competitive prices which we pass on to you. We are also confident in the consistent quality we are able offer because we have been using the same skilled craftsmen for many years. In addition, we believe our way of doing business has fostered trust with our customers, and that is tremendously important – and the reason we feel like we have stayed busy during slower economies too.
Christmas Lumber, Noland and Company, American Lighting, Gray Hodges, Modern Supply, Home Choice Designs, Dixie Kitchen, Tennessee Valley Waterproofing, Claiborne Hauling, Dempster Solid Poured Wall Foundations, Pella Windows, and General Shale Brick. However, we are open to using other material suppliers in the area if you have special relationships or preferences.
Construction Notebook – In order to make the construction process simple, you will be provided a notebook with step-by-step material selections needed, as well as your budget information for each selection and places to shop with supplier contacts (multiple suppliers for each product, their phone numbers, websites etc). You will receive our builder discount with suppliers, or you are free to choose your own supplier (if you wish). The notebook will also include an order of things to pick out as well as the budget amount you have for each category (ie plumbing fixtures etc). Our customers have found this step-by-step notebook process to take the “headache” out of building, and they have also found our supplier discounts help save them money. They also like having the flexibility of using a supplier they may have a special relationship with when it can save them money (for example your cousin sells carpet and can get you a special deal). In addition, Kim is available to help with color and product selection for your home. You can see some of her work on past homes under the “attention to detail” page on our website. You can also see many pictures on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/JaggersConstructionTn This service is offered free of charge to our clients.

We are confident in our workers, but it is our job to make sure the home is being built to your satisfaction. This means being on-site very frequently. Also, by being on site often we can keep things going smoothly and efficiently by planning ahead for material needs etc. We will not take on more work than we can do and do well.
- We believe in doing all we can to do the job right, and that our company will succeed or fail because of how we treat people.
- We believe that doing the right thing is not just a way to succeed in business but is part of who we are, who we want our children to be, and who we should be when we call ourselves Christians. Our name is not the only name that we represent.
- We believe you have the right to know where every dollar goes in the construction of your home. That is why we build on a cost-plus basis.
- We believe you should expect us to keep you informed of progress on your home, and we will return your phone calls in a timely manner.
- We believe you can and should enjoy building your new home!
