Why build with Whalen Custom Homes?

New home construction has changed a lot in our area over the past ten years. Skyrocketing land prices, building material prices, and labor costs have caused many of the larger builders to cut corners. The quality of the materials and craftsman they use have continually diminished while their prices keep on rising. Large national companies have come to town offering super sales gimmicks and special promotions that don’t work for most people. They sure don’t build them like they used to.

We do! At Whalen Custom Homes, our philosophy is simple:

  1. Build a great product using nothing but the best materials and craftsmen.
  2. Deliver a true value to our clients when it comes to quality, features, and purchase price.
  3. Offer the best level of service possible.

We want your new home to stand the test of time. We understand it must be a sound investment whether you live there for two years or twenty. We will invest the time upfront to ensure that we achieve these goals. Before you make your final decision, give us a chance to show you what we can do for you. Let’s sit down and truly compare our homes with the competition. Remember you always get what you pay for, especially when it comes to a new home. Thank you for considering our company to build your new home.
