The Norfolk Difference: Your Local Homebuilder

March 18, 2022

Norfolk Homes incorporated in the Greater Ann Arbor Area in 1993, and over the past 29 years we have developed and built more than 40 communities. It is important for us to never lose sight of what we do, which is more than developing land and building homes—we build trust, communities and legacy. Your home is more than a financial investment, or a place to hang your hat—we believe your home is an intricate part of who you are, which is why we continually evaluate our building practices and implement the best in construction materials, innovative technology,  features and finishes.  

Construction standard

Our commitment to quality construction is second to none. With standard construction features including: 12” overhangs that offer incredible protection to your home against strong winds and heavy rain, engineered floor and roof systems that add stability to your home structure, 16” on center stud walls that are more expensive than some builders may choose—but that add a considerable amount of additional structure to your home with steel beams and columns—you can rest assured that your home was built to last.

Smart home technology

Having a home with the latest technology available is within reach when you choose to work with our team at Norfolk Homes on your new construction home. With the SkyBell Smart Video Doorbell, you’ll easily be able to protect your entire household as it combines the weather-proof doorbell, motion sensor, security camera and two-way intercom—all in one easy-to-use system. Set up alerts when anyone presses your doorbell or goes past the built-in motion sensors—and even see, hear and speak to anyone at your door using the free app on your smartphone or tablet. 

Stay comfortable all the time in your home with the Honeywell Lyric T6 Thermostat that is Wi-Fi enabled and can be programmed to manage your home’s temperature on its own. Adjust the temperature and comfort settings from your Android and iOS devices, and even give voice-activated commands on Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant—for a truly effortless way to keep your home comfortable at any time of day. 

Healthy home promise

Keeping energy efficiency top-of-mind is a crucial part of our process. Sealed ducts enhance the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems to save you money on energy bills, and Low-E windows go above and beyond in reducing the amount of damaging UV rays that get through to keep your carpets, furniture and floors protected from any sun damage that may otherwise occur. 

Our team also offers foam and caulk air sealing that limits the amount of outside air coming into your home to keep your comfort level high, Energy Star appliances that keep your energy levels low without sacrificing high performance or durability, water-efficient faucets and showerheads that help conserve the amount of water you use and a SEER 13 HVAC system to keep your home temperatures comfortable without putting a heavy strain on your electricity usage. 

Place your trust in our team

When you choose to work with our team at Norfolk Homes, you’re choosing a builder who keeps your needs top-of-mind throughout the entire process. As we continue to grow our business each year, we are committed to elevating our services for our homeowners. 

Take a look through our communities, browse our floor plan options,  and move-in ready homes  to begin the journey to your future home. 

We moved back to the area and after touring several new home communities we purchased a quick move-in home from Norfolk Homes in Arlington Woods. We immediately felt at home here. Arlington Woods is very peaceful and serene, and we’ve loved getting to know our neighbors. We highly recommend this builder!
