The Platinum Builder Award is a national award given to approximately 47 home builders annually out of nearly 10,000 members.

This prestigious award is bestowed to a very small number of builders. The Platinum Builder Award recognizes accomplished builders who demonstrate leadership in new construction with Innovations in design, marketing strategy, and construction technology.

This recognition represents our company’s continued commitment to consistently build quality homes with little to no warranty issues. If a warranty issue does arise, addressing it in a timely manner is our top priority.
