Kay Builders Doesn’t Do Cookie Cutter

Have you ever noticed when you are driving through a new home community how all of the homes seem to look the same? It seems as though over the past decade, the focus of homebuilders has been on cost savings, which has translated to less interesting curb appeal and a rather uniform look as a result of production efficiencies. When the economy and housing industry suffered a downturn after 2008, builders also reduced the number of included features, both inside and outside of their homes, while also using cheaper materials as a way to reduce costs.
For Kay Builders, the leading builder in Lehigh Valley, PA, curb appeal is one of the main priorities along with quality construction, the best locations and our CUSTOM-i-ZABLE trademark. Kay Builders has actually increased the number of features it includes and has added to its exterior features. Interior features include 9-foot first floor ceilings, lofts and vaulted ceilings, tile floor and maple cabinets, 95.5 percent high efficiency furnaces and hand framing. Included exterior features such as brick and stone facades, architectural garage doors, metal accent roofs and complicated roof lines add significantly to our curb appeal. We also make sure to advise customers very carefully on what color combinations look the best and we add significant amounts of landscaping. Most importantly each home is individually designed so that no two look the same.
One of the problems of not keeping specifications at a high level in order to reduce cost is that customers who have already bought at the higher specification years back are going to find it hard to get value back on resale. Taking masonry off and cheapening materials often can lead to a rundown look in the community after a short period and can mean higher levels of maintenance for homeowners. Kay Builders has found other ways to reduce its costs by improving efficiency, reducing overhead and shopping suppliers aggressively to provide more house for the same price.
At Kay Builders we are concerned about your resale value. Because the Lehigh Valley is our primary market, we rely on repeat buyers and what better way to assure this than focusing on resale value? Homes in Kay Builders communities typically have high resale values because of this commitment to quality, value and curb appeal.
We invite you to visit any of our six communities: The Trio Fields community consists of 150 single homes and 220 townhomes located in Lower Nazareth which is noted for excellent school systems, low taxes and a rural feel with close proximity to all amenities. Trexler Field, a neighborhood of 358 twin villas and single homes on 230 rolling acres in Upper Macungie Township, Parkland School District; Laurel Field, a well located neighborhood of 238 townhomes also in Upper Macungie and Parkland School District; The Fields at Lockridge, a twin home community in Lower Macungie Township, East Penn School District; The Fields at Indian Creek, active adult community of 219 single homes in Emmaus, PA and Blue Ridge Chase, a single home community in Upper Saucon Township, Southern Lehigh Schools.
The townhomes in our communities have been popular because of their unique curb appeal compared to other townhome communities. We also offer master-on-the-main plans for those customers seeking to downsize from larger homes. Kay Builders has taken a revolutionary approach to townhome construction in terms of flexibility. Any model can be joined with any other model, which results in no two buildings looking alike. Interest in the single homes is also strong. Here the company offers many newly designed floor plans to feature the latest designer trends.
Kay Builders has served the Lehigh County continuously for 6 decades, longer than any other homebuilding company. We have also constructed more homes in Lehigh County than other homebuilding companies, having served over 3,500 satisfied customers. Our team has had to work hard at maintaining our reputation since the Lehigh Valley is our sole source of business and we must work harder to ensure the community continues to trust the Kay Builders team. We hope you will have the trust and confidence in us to serve you in your search for a new home.
