From Insurance to Custom Homes
Bella Home Builders, Inc. is a true reflection of it’s founder and president David DePaulo. His traits were shaped by humble beginnings. He believes in honesty, hard work, attention to detail and a passion to design and build. As a third generation builder, he recalls his grandfather building and designing projects throughout the Capital Region. His values have been instilled “to do what’s right, be honest and fair.” We choose not to be a high volume company. We build a house as perfect as we can at a competitive price. We keep our promises, building should and can be stress free.
Our Vice President and on-site manager, Tanner Duguid is also a third generation builder. Tanner is well known for his attention to detail and having “zero tolerance”. Our demands and requirements of our workers are far above average. We know we are only as good as the people around us. We employ only the finest most talented craftsman in their field. Our extreme high quality of work and craftsmanship has been consistently recognized, year after year in the “Showcase of Homes” and the “Parade of Homes”. The award that we are most proud of and have won every year is the prestigious “Quality Workmanship Award”. We have also earned “Peoples Choice Award” and “Realitor Choice Award”. Our customers will tell you we build each and every home as if it was our own. We love the thought of having the responsibility for fullfilling our clients dreams and aspirations. Building communities that families can grow and be proud to live in is a special opportunity and one we take extremely seriously. Our homes are custom designs that work both inside and out. Our interior designers and architects are always available anytime throughout the design and building process.
