Turnberry Construction Group
Home Builders in Philadelphia
"Turnberry Custom Homes is amazing. Kevin is absolutely great to work with and steps through each part of the project with you making sure you are comfortable along the way. He's incredibly knowledgeable about the processes and products that are being put into your project and/or home. Our project involved clearing part of a heavily wooded lot that we plan to build on in the very near future (Turnberry will be building the home as well) and it was done quickly, professionally, and under budget! We've worked with several builders and contractors over the years and Turnberry is by far the best."

Rockwell Custom

"Luke and Rockwell Custom were so knowledgeable and helpful with the remodel of our kitchen and beyond. My husband and I felt like we got to be a part of the process while gaining so many ideas and insights from Luke. We were traveling while some of the work was being done and we had full trust that the project was in the right hands. Looking forward to using them again for some other home projects!"

Bowman Walker Construction
Home Builders in Philadelphia
"Bowman Walker Construction helped to make our beach home dreams come true. Thirteen years ago we bought a small Millman home in Villas, NJ. We had dreams of remodeling our home and adding an addition. With our own ideas in mind we contacted Lance and Dave at Bowman Walker Construction to begin the process. Our home successfully went from a three bedroom one bath home to a four bedroom two and a half bath, with a stunning master bedroom suite, porches and decks. At the time we lived five hours away from the construction site........we were daily kept informed of changes, problems and potential choices. The lines of communication were always open. When we visited the site we would do a walk through to discuss every detail. Our home is a beautiful example of their choice of detail and quality of workmanship. We are so happy and proud to own a Bowman Walker Construction home."

"Wow! Impressive, professional and completely enjoyable describes our experience in working with W.B. Homes. We recently designed and installed two models and a vignette for W.B. Homes at their Saddlebrook Estates community and were delighted with their clear, communication, upfront information sharing, immediate responses and clear understanding and appreciation of the design process. When we arrived on site, we were incredibly impressed with the immaculate craftsmanship and architectural designs of their homes! Each and every on of us said we would buy a home from them if we lived in the area. Everyone in the company - from top to bottom - are professional, talented, kind and a joy to work with! We're honored to be a part of their successful team!"

Dakota Dawn Delineation
Home Builders in Philadelphia
"Michael did an AMAZING job for us. One of the firms that we interviewed was an architect from the firm that designed the original job. He withdrew saying "your home is what it is, there's nothing that can be done to change it." Dakota Dawn gave us a whole new look with relatively minor exterior work. What they accomplished on the inside was remarkable. We would recommend them without reservation!"

Vaughan and Sautter Builders
Home Builders in Philadelphia
"We built a house in 2012 with Vaughan and Sautter builders and cannot say enough positive things about our experience through the process and the quality of their work. We took a model home and made some adjustments to fit our needs. They listened to our needs and were incredibly helpful with ideas and suggestions to ensure that our home was exactly the way we wanted it to be. Our project manager was fantastic. His attention to detail was top notch and he truly treated the project as if it was his home. He made great suggestions and ensured that we were updated and involved during the entire process. The finished is impeccable. I would recommend Vaughan and Sautter builders to anyone looking to build a new home! You will not be disappointed with the service and quality."

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Philadelphia market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Philadelphia has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Philadelphia also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Philadelphia:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
