“...Advantage Homes should be your first call...”

Two and a half years into our home ownership, we remain delighted with Advantage Homes’ superior quality of workmanship, which earned a top rating from our homeowners’ insurance carrier. From settlement through construction to the warranty inspection a year later, Rick Centra and his team were a delight to work with. If you want integrity, excellent communication and professional service from your builder, then Advantage Homes should be your first call.
