The building process is a memorable one and Michael Mercho, of family owned Integra Builders has delivered on some of the finest custom homes in the industry for over 30 years. From Indianapolis to Bloomington, “Our family takes great pride in our ability to create distinctive and creative home designs that feature state-of-the-art and comfortable interiors; combining luxury, functionality and beauty,” said Mercho.

Integra believes architectural features in a luxury custom home can add immense depth and character to a home built in the modern day – windows and doors are important details to place heavy consideration on. Mercho explained, “It starts with initial quality, and the Pella brand has a great reputation for quality, customer service (to the builder) and warranty (to the homeowner) especially with McComb Pella Windows and Doors.”

Mercho has had a long-standing relationship with McComb’s representative Ryan Lee. “Ryan will come to our office, and go through each and every single window, one by one as we work through the CAD or 3D renderings to make sure everything comes out right. He’s personable, knowledgeable and we appreciate the relationship we have built with him over the years,” said Mercho, “and for the client’s selections, I can send Ryan’s information and he handles it start to finish.”

Building a custom home should be an exhilarating and rewarding experience. Integra Builders takes the utmost care in making sure your home reflects your lifestyle and individual taste. With an unparalleled reputation for excellence in today’s custom market, they design each home with the highest level of craftsmanship every step of the way.

As an example, the prairie-style grid windows used Pella’s Lifestyle series and Mercho explained the details and problem-solving their team executed with Ryan. “We worked with Ryan on the sizing of the windows to be sure they could be installed properly on the arched wall and be able to still properly waterproof the openings.”

As summer 2020 quickly approaches, a unique market trend is biophilia – the innate, human emotion connection to nature. Integra loves to incorporate biophilia with McComb Pella Windows and Doors by designing and installing collapsing, bifolding, or sliding windows and doors into wall cavities – it’s a great way to bring the outdoor weather, festivities, and entertaining inside without a large barrier! We all know and appreciate, connecting with nature has been a necessity for humans the past few months!
