"Mike and I love the doors! Thank you for sharing your ideas! You made the doors a focal point, not just a function! Joe and Dustin finished quicker than anticipated. I appreciate you stopping in while the work was being done and also for following up with a visit to see the finished product. Mike and I look forward to working with you again in the future!"
Mike & Eileen Telesky - 2012

“In a market with abundant houses we could not find the one for us.  We chose Crusader Homes and were extremely pleased from beginning to end!  One of the best aspects of working with Matt is the pinpoint accuracy he delivered from a pricing, timeline, and delivery perspective. Matt was very attentive and reactive to our needs and wants and offered great ideas in the design and layout of our home.  We would recommend building with Crusader Homes to anyone!”
Chris & Kim – 2011

"Crusader homes built us a beautiful home with high quality materials that we are very proud of.  They worked hard at accomplishing all our wants and needs while being mindful of our budget.  The owner was very easy to work with and personally addressed all of our concerns.  Most important for us was the time frame we had to work with and crusader homes more than met our needs and finished ahead of schedule.  We would not hesitate to recommend crusader homes to anyone looking for a high quality beautiful home."
Mike and Sandy - 2011

"The true testament to Crusader Homes is with all the inventory out there in this housing market, we chose to build with Crusader. We were looking for more space, affordability and style. And we got all three. We couldn't be happier with the choice we made. They listened to our needs and desires and worked with us to make the most of this opportunity to build our new home. We would do it again in a heartbeat."
Tommy & Jessica - 2010

“Crusader Homes (“CH”) has constructed for me a duplex with over 3,400 finished square feet plus basements, remodeled my 30 year old garage, and provided infrastructure at my 28 homesite property development. Firstly, during and after the construction process, CH has been timely and attentive to the needs of the project. Secondly, the owner of CH would personally meet with me to address any and all needs. Lastly, and most importantly, the construction has proved over time to be of sound quality. Working with CH has been a positive experience, and I recommend them without qualification.”

Jay & Wendy - 2008

"Thank you for building such a solid home we can be proud of. Our house is truly a home to be comfortable and happy in. The overall construction of the home is solid, but what makes it so nice is the details and custom features. We feel that we found a one of a kind house for a reasonable price. Taking the time to build an energy efficient home is also evident in our electric and gas bills. We would be happy to give our recommendations to anyone that is looking for a great builder. We are grateful that we found a reputable builder."
Dr. & Mrs. Jonathan Truchan - 2007
