Consistently Providing the Lehigh Valley with the Highest Quality Single, Twin and Townhomes
For close to five decades, Kay Builders Inc. has been an influential part of neighborhoods in Allentown and across the suburbs of the Lehigh Valley. In 1961, founder Dick Koze quickly established a reputation for excellence as an innovative new home builder in the Lehigh Valley among his peers and the three generations of satisfied homebuyers who enjoy a quality built, customized home or townhome. With twenty-seven communities to its credit, this innovative, award-winning builder is the choice of many who have come to call the Lehigh Valley home. Now owned and operated by son Rick Koze, this third generation builder uses the same skills and principles that made Kay Builders a home building success early on. Rick grew up in the construction business, earned an economics degree from Yale University and had a 20-year career in finance before taking the helm at Kay Builders in 2002. He brings with him the perspective of the contemporary home buyer along with business experience and acumen. Rick and the Kay team, with their years of work in the Valley, know the best land and locations to build new single, townhome and twin communities.
Family-owned advantage: As a family-owned and operated business, Kay Builders eliminates costly managerial layers between builder and customer. With a lower cost structure, we are able to deliver a customized home with many included features at a good price while using materials and building methods that exceed industry standards. You will receive personal assistance from senior members of the Kay Builders team and your comments and feedback are carefully considered. We pride ourselves on giving our customers quick responses to questions, pricing requests and architectural changes so that they have time to consider their options. Take comfort in knowing that the owner visits each site every day to observe building quality and architectural consistency to insure the best finished product. Changes and improvements to each building are made in real time every day.
What makes a Kay Builders community unique:
Kay Builders does things a little differently than other builders in the Lehigh Valley. We are a fully integrated company, performing all functions in-house - from property acquisition, land planning and site development through architectural design, construction, and marketing and sales. Kay Builders, as one of the Lehigh Valley's only fully integrated homebuilders, designs and creates communities with a focus on the unique natural features of the land and surrounding environment. New homes are carefully integrated into these settings and exterior features are incorporated to add character and create a unique sense of neighborhood. We work with customers to choose the best lot location for their needs and the most complimentary exterior color combinations which results in a pleasing landscape.
Kay Builders innovation: Kay Builders provides you with the most up-to-date home designs by traveling the country to study emerging architectural trends. Our team adapts these concepts to local demand, with an emphasis on style, comfort, energy efficiency and convenience. We include sophisticated design elements in our homes such as spacious lofts, techno centers, custom fireplaces, relaxing salon baths, elegant tray or soaring vaulted ceilings, well placed niches and alcoves, plus an abundance of well-insulated windows providing extra light and ambiance. Ever conscious of value, Kay Builders often includes these and numerous other luxury elements as standard. We constantly research new technologies and because of our flexibility we are able to quickly integrate new building products and methods into the building process to provide you with the most up-to-date features.
CUSTOM-i-ZABLE new homes and twins:
Kay Builders encourages your creativity and customization. You have the freedom to expand rooms, move walls to rearrange traffic flow, add bathrooms, finish basements and choose from a myriad of architectural accents. Hand framing all homes on site enables us to cost effectively make changes late in the process, so if you forget something, don't hesitate to ask. Reflecting your individual lifestyle, we'll help you put personal touches on your home without having to resort to more costly, fully custom alternatives. With creative floor plans and our personalized approach, Kay Builders provides individuals and families alike with enjoyable lifestyles particularly suited to them.
Care for the environment: Instead of clear-cutting an entire development, it is our policy to develop each community in small phases. This allows us to give particular attention to highlighting each home site's natural grades and features. Developing a new-home community in small phases enables us to minimize destruction to the environment and the erosion impact on streams. Trees are saved when possible and trees that must be cut are mulched and spread to enhance the soil. Rocks are often repurposed into well placed walls, an added value at no cost. Inside the home, we focus on energy efficiency. Windows and HVAC systems exceed industry standards and features such as house wrap, extra insulation, attic fans and energy-efficient light bulbs are often included as standard. Our new partnership with HouseLogix is groundbreaking. Their wireless, remote access house technology system provides lighting control functions and control of mechanical systems that can be used to greatly improve the operating cost of your home.
