Building Homes for Families
We believe the  homeowners' opinion is the best gauge of our craftsmanship and service


    We recently retired to Muscle Shoals from Illinois.  After careful consideration we chose Ricky Veal to
    build our retirement home.  You might imagine the concern and anxiety we had living 500 miles away
    from the project.  Ricky understood our concerns and made it a point to be on site everyday to make
    sure the work progressed on schedule and within budget.
    Part of our project employed new “green” technology for heating, cooling, water supply, insulation,
    and backup generation systems.  Ricky wasn’t afraid to incorporate these new technologies and the
    whole project went smoothly.  We quickly learned that Ricky is a trustworthy, innovative, and versatile
    craftsman who insures high quality workmanship from his crew right down to the smallest detail.
    Needless to say, we are very pleased to have met and worked with Ricky and the whole staff at Veal’s
    Custom Homes.  Ricky and his staff kept us informed on all work site activities, provided frequent
    updates, made several excellent suggestions on changes to our building plans, and kept our costs as low
    as possible.  In the end, being 500 miles away was never a problem for us.
    We’ve already recommended Ricky to several people, and will continue to do so because we are
    impressed with his trustworthiness, integrity, attention to detail, and willingness to try new things.
    Thanks, Ricky – you made our dream come alive!

     This was our first time to have a house built. We had always heard that house
    building is very stressful, but Veal’s Custom Homes made it the smoothest
    process.  From the very start to the very end we felt like we were the most
    important customers.  Very good quality work.  
    We love our new home that was designed just the we wanted and dreamed.  
    We would build again as long as we could have Veal’s Custom Homes as the
       Carl & Amy  Simms                        
         As first-time builders with a baby on the way, Veal's Custom Homes made what could
    have been an overwhelming and stressful project   and made it a very pleasant experience.   
    Ricky's approach was very detail oriented, timely, thorough, cost conscious, and customer
    friendly. He was informative and helpful regarding our input and concerns throughout the
    entire process.
         We were very impressed with everyone involved. I cannot express enough how pleased
    we are with our home. We recommend Veal's Custom homes to anyone thinking about
    building a new home. We are happy we did and know you will be, too!

    For years, I had wanted to build a house on my land. I was afraid to because of all the
    stories of "bad experiences " I had heard. After multiple recommendations for Veal's
    Custom Homes, we made an appointment to talk with Ricky. He was very encouraging
    and made us feel comfortable with the building process. During the construction of our
    home, Ricky was always there to answer questions and handle any concerns that we
    had. He kept us on budget and Mae handled all the invoices.
    We are very pleased with our home and our choice of builders. We would definitely use
    Veal's Custom Homes again. You won't find a better builder!

    Before we selected Veal’s Custom Homes as our builder, his reputation
    preceded him. We saw and heard from others in the profession that Veal’s
    Custom Homes exhibited a strong work ethic and quality workmanship on
    all jobs. We are very pleased with our home in Veal’s Custom Homes’
    newest development, Stone Ridge. Mr. Ricky Veal was prompt in response
    to initial inquiries about the property and the plans for our home. He met with
    us on multiple occasions to customize the plans to fit our needs and to
    ensure the building process was executed smoothly. Throughout the
    building process, Mr. Ricky Veal was very thorough in his communication,
    planning, and execution. His knowledge and skill set were so valuable
    throughout the process. The whole process was enjoyable from start to
    finish. We will and have recommend Veal’s Custom Homes to anyone
    thinking of building.

    "Ricky took the stress out of building our home. He worked
    diligently to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. Ricky was
    always available and very prompt in returning phone calls. He
    helped us make decisions when we were unsure about what
    would or would not work. Most importantly, no matter how many
    questions we had, Ricky and Mae never acted bothered or
    frustrated. Ricky's patience helped us build a home not a house.
    We are so thrilled with our home! We cannot imagine the process
    being any easier than it was with Veal's Custom Homes!"
