What Our Customers Are Saying

“The challenge of building a home seemed overwhelming to us until Costa Homebuilders provided us with the tools to make it happen. Opening with Jeff Costa’s up-front let’s get everything on paper in the beginning approach so there are no surprises during construction, to the constant supervision of Chris Z over every detail of construction, we could not have had a better building experience. The subcontractors that Costa Homebuilders associates with are impeccable, beyond distinction. We quickly realized that from the beginning stages of construction from excavating to flooring, HVAC, drywall, lighting, skilled carpentry, windows, expert electricians, all the way through landscaping. The level of expertise associated with Costa Homebuilders enabled us to create a home that is custom-built. We have enjoyed one year in our home and continue to appreciate the distinct professional touches that were provided to us through Costa Homebuilders. We thank you for creating precisely what we asked for in our home.”

“After living in apartments for many years, I decided to buy a house. Unable to find anything I liked on the listings, my agent, Don Housely, led me to Costa Homebuilders. I am very glad that he did. When I first met with Jeff Costa, we discussed the type of house I wanted. After several revisions, the final plans were completed. I chose a lot that would accommodate a main level living area with a finished, walk-out basement. I was able to choose exactly what I liked from a large variety of quality building materials. I am extremely pleased by the quality and workmanship of my new home. Chris Zacur, the construction manager, coordinated the stages of building with the various craftsmen. He was always available to answer questions. He was a joy to work with. Chris Zacur and his assistant, Dave Alderson, were always there, making sure everything ran smoothly. If you are looking for a quality home, built by truly competent people, you will not find a better builder than Costa Homebuilders. I recommend them most highly.”

“A few years ago my wife and I decided to sell our home and move closer to Pittsburgh. Immediately we ran into a problem. When we tried to find an existing home that had the configuration and amenities that we felt we wanted it was just impossible. The perfect home for us in Pittsburgh did not exist. But it does now. Permit me to explain. When we were unable to find a home we decided to build one. To that end we interviewed and met with every high-end homebuilder we could find. After seeing Jeff Costa’s work, his system for planning and construction, and checking his references we decided upon Costa Homebuilders. My wife and I put together a 42 page document that described everything we wanted in a home. We took this to Jeff and he engaged a very competent architect as part of our package. The end result was a set of plans for a home that seemed to us to be perfect. After acquiring the necessary land, Jeff, his foreman Chris, and their team got to work. During construction, we found that we left a few things out of our 42 page dream list. The Costa team was helpful and flexible in helping us upgrade our plans even as the house was under construction.When we moved in we thought everything was perfect. As nice as it was, we found that one of the subcontractors had made some mistakes. Jeff and his team swooped in, assessed the situation, and made it right. What a pleasure it is to live in a custom designed home where things are just as we dreamed. Thank you Costa Homebuilders for a wonderful experience and a home we love.”

“When Susan and I decided to retire from our work in Northern Virginia, our goal was to reside in the Pittsburgh area and build a single story “ranch” style home. We approached Costa Builders because a close relative mentioned their name in passing. From over 200 miles away, the process was executed. We were sent MLS numbers for lots and able to use Google Earth to narrow down our new home location. Greg Costa drove us through all types of weather because he knew we only had the weekend to search. The location we selected was off the beaten path, but Jeff Costa said, “No problem. Let’s make this work.” We had a design plan in mind however the terrain was a bit difficult to negotiate but again Jeff said, “Let’s run this by our architect and make it work” and sure enough the small changes we made were hardly noticeable. It is a challenge building a home from far away. There must be a great deal of faith and trust that things will be done correctly. That faith paid off for we reside in “The Susan Model,” truly the home of our dreams. The incredible detail and the quality of material far exceeded any of our expectations.”

“My experience with Costa Custom Homebuilders was outstanding. They built a beautiful home for me with great professionalism, craftsmanship and attention to detail. I would strongly recommend them for custom home construction. Perhaps more persuasively, I would call them first if I ever build again. Indeed, I have consulted with them on many projects since they built my home, and on each occasion I was similarly impressed with their knowledge, honesty and commitment to excellence. I encountered Costa Homebuilders in the midst of needing to switch builders due to failures of my first builder early in a rather sizeable project. Costa quickly got me and my family back on track. They made important stylistic and structural improvements to our plans, engaged in frank and open discussions about our options regarding materials and vendors, and executed the work timely and with care. Costa is a family-owned company with generations of experience and a stellar reputation. I have worked closely with Jeff Costa, the company’s chief executive, on my own home and with respect to other projects. He is extremely knowledgeable, anticipates and helps navigate common issues based upon his considerable experience, addresses any unforeseen issues promptly and honestly, and insists on the highest quality. Quite simply, Jeff inspires confidence and effectively sets the tone for the entire company.”

“Jeff really cared what our specific needs & desires were & helped us design the home that achieved them. Chris was extremely patient with our many questions. He was very helpful during the process with this to consider. He even phoned us a pic of our newly bricked home while we were in Flordia. We miss him. I have friends that are building with a national company and have not had our positive experience with going local. Kim was always most gracious and helpfull. Ken and Sam were great. We had a great time making decisions & watching the building process and we feel we met good people and made new friends.”

“We had our final walk thru today and we couldn’t be happier with the house. We absolutely love it! All of your vendors were SO great to work with, especially Sam, Lola, Ken, and Ray! We also had great experiences with both Mark’s electricians and Adam’s plumbers. All of your Costa employees, both on the job site (Mike!!) and in the office are awesome! Especially Kim! Everyone we know who has built a house always told us how stressful, busy, and time consuming their building process was. I am happy to say we had an exact opposite experience! Your team made this such a wonderful, easy, and carefree experience. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks for helping our vision “come to life” And thank you to you and your entire team for building our dream home.”

“We absolutely love our house! Neighbors walk passed and tell us how much they like the look of our house and how all of the details go together so well. We walked in that 1st day thinking we had about a 30% chance we would build. After meeting with Jeff just one time we were 100% sure we would be building and wondered why we waited so long. Ken at General Woodcraft couldn’t have been more helpful. Love our kitchen. Mike and the whole service team has been great. No request was too large or too small. Even when something unexpected happened, we never stressed because we knew that it would be taken care of, and it always was. After talking to friends, I know that isn’t the case with other builders. This is our dream house and we hope to never move again, but if we do we will be calling you back!”

“After doing some research online for a quality home builder in the Pittsburgh area, I came across Costa Homebuilders. We got in contact with Tony, exchanged a few emails, met for an overview of the project, and were on a roll building in no time. From start to finish this company has been a pleasure to deal with. They made building a home a stress-free process. If you are looking for a high quality home builder, Costa is undoubtably THE company to work with. They’ve established a team of extremely talented professionals in every aspect of home building. The quality and craftsmanship of their work is second to none. I highly recommend Costa Homebuilders and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again.”

“Exceeded my expectations hands down. Jeff probably spent close to 10 hours answering every possible question I had before we signed with Costa and did it with a smile on his face. With new construction there are always surprises;however, before they happened I was notified of what could come.”

“We are grateful that Costa was very flexible in addressing changes and last-minute requests. Everyone was easy to work with. We are most impresses with quality of finished product. Tony was exceptionally pleasant at all times and many trade contractors received A++ rating for quality, professionalism, timeliness and cleanliness”.

“Thank You guys for the wonderful home you built for us. From the first contact with Jeff through the closing and beyond, the service was outstanding! Even above the quality construction and professionalism, you have been great people to work with. The whole process A-Z was great! We’d build again with you guys!”

“Everyone was helpful. Tony and Chris were great and always returned my calls promptly and took care of whatever I asked of them. Ken with the kitchens and Sam at Rusmur were outstanding to work with. The electrician was very helpful and would always answer calls and texts.”
