An In-Depth Look at the History & Legacy of David James HomesMany builders and contractors claim that they’re dedicated to customer service, but David James Homes of Virginia and West Virginia has devised almost every part of its process to serve its customers in the best way possible. When Merle Heckman started David James Homes, he had over 20 years experience working as a cost controller for another builder. He not only knew how to control costs, but how to make the home building experience less stressful and more enjoyable for customers. Since 1995, David James Homes has specialized in building highly customized homes at prices below what traditional builders charge. “Our concept is very unique to the Virginia and West Virginia market,” notes Merle. “Rather than pricing homes with allowances for amenities, we have showrooms where customers can choose everything from flooring to roofing, and we can give them a set price for their new home. Customers love the convenience, and it allows us to purchase materials in large volume, realizing substantial savings that are passed on as lower prices.” Speaking of selection, David James Homes has sales offices/selection centers in Culpepper, Lynchburg, Roanoke & Winchester, Virginia; and Clarksburg, West Virginia. We also build in Morgantown, West Virginia, and Uniontown & Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. That kind of geographic diversity – and a library of ranch, bi-level, split level, cape cod and 2 story homes – helps buyers from all over find the custom David James home they’re looking for. Finding a custom home builder who is financially stable, guarantees their pricing, and offers a huge variety of floor plans, is to say the least, unusual. But, Merle Heckman has an unusual approach to building homes. And it seems to be working. The company has experienced sustained growth over the past 15 years, and Merle believes it’s because “we treat the customer right; we take care of them.” Part of that care is David James Homes’ unparalleled Warranty Protection Plan, which includes a 15-Year Basement Waterproofing warranty, a 10-Year Structural Warranty, and a 5-Year Standards of Performance Warranty that warrants every home against any defects in workmanship. Thanks to Merle, and the David James Homes family of employees, its customers enjoy a unique and incomparable relationship based on integrity and respect. What better legacy could David James Homes and Merle Heckman have?
