From Ann Arbor to Your Front Door: The Local Builder You Can Trust

February 24, 2023

Since 1993, Norfolk Homes has been a leading homebuilder in the Greater Ann Arbor area, having developed and built more than 40 communities over the past 3 decades. As a local builder who’s deeply rooted in the value of community, we understand that building homes is not just about developing land and constructing buildings—it is about creating trust, giving back and leaving a legacy that lasts generations. That's why we continually evaluate our building practices and incorporate the best construction materials, innovative technology and exceptional finishes to create homes that you'll love for years to come. Read below to find out more about our forward-thinking, incredible practices at Norfolk Homes and how we stand out as the local builder you can trust.

Incomparable quality

Unlike larger builders who may prioritize quantity over quality, we never lose sight of the fact that a home should never be compromised when it comes to excellence. Our dedication to quality construction is second to none, and we use the latest in construction materials, innovative technology, features and finishes to ensure that your home is built to last. Our standard construction features are designed with your safety and comfort in mind, from the engineered floor and roof systems that add stability to your home structure—all the way to the 16” center stud walls with steel beams and columns that provide additional structure to your home. Throughout each of our thoughtfully-designed floor plans, you can rest assured knowing that your home is strategically, carefully built and expertly crafted to last a lifetime.

Forward-thinking technology and efficiency

On top of our top-notch quality, we stay on the cutting edge of smart home technology and energy-efficient features. With the SkyBell Smart Video Doorbell, you can easily protect your entire household, and the Honeywell Lyric T6 Thermostat allows you to manage your home’s temperature from anywhere, anytime. Our team is also committed to keeping energy efficiency top-of-mind, from sealed ducts to Low-E windows that reduce damaging UV rays to foam and caulk air sealing that limits the amount of outside air coming into your home. We are also proud to offer Energy Star appliances and water-efficient faucets and showerheads, as well as a SEER 13 HVAC system to keep your home comfortable without putting a heavy strain on your electricity usage. We understand that health starts within your home, which is why we include the latest in smart home technology and energy efficiency for all of our homeowners to enjoy comfortable, sustainable lifestyles—as well as lower energy bills.

Unparalleled customer service

Perhaps most of all, what truly sets us apart from larger builders is our personalized service. When you choose to work with Norfolk Homes, you’re choosing a builder who keeps your needs top-of-mind throughout the entire process. Our team never starts on a project until we’ve gotten to know you as the homeowner and built a strong relationship with you. We want to know your wants and needs in a new home and your personal style so we can help you find the home of your dreams—which is something that can be difficult to come across with larger national builders. We know that strong communication is key, which is why we will walk you through each step of the process to answer any questions you may have and ensure that everything is coming along as it should. Norfolk Homes takes the uncertainty out of the equation by putting you as the homeowner at the forefront of our values—and we’re proud to be the Ann Arbor builder that can bring you home.
