WELCOME TO HOMEOWNERSHIP THE SIMMONS WAY!
“The Details Make the Difference!”
Simmons Homes takes pride in building homes that are high in quality and will continue to serve its customers needs for a lifetime.
Although your home may be one of the biggest investments you will ever make, cost is only one measure of its value. Ultimately, your return will be based on how well it lives up to your expectations. This is why we focus our efforts on delivering a home that you can grow into, not out of. Simmons Homes takes great pride in Customer Service at every phase of the building process.

Maintaining your home
Beyond Simmons industry-leading one year warranty coverage, home owners also have a very important responsibility to maintain their new homes in proper working order. Proper maintenance of a new home will minimize the major repairs over time and increase your enjoyment of your home.
With the help of many skilled craftspeople, Simmons Homes has pieced together a complex puzzle of elements that make up your completed home. As part of this process, we have prepared the site; laid the foundation; framed the structure of the house; installed the plumbing, heating, and electrical systems; completed the interior and exterior finish; and landscaped the site.
Buying a new home is the largest and possibly best investment most Americans will ever make. It is hard to find a financial adviser who does not recommend homeownership as the first step in planning for a family’s financial security. Buying a newly built home also gives you the latest in materials, appliances, equipment, design, and amenities available in homebuilding today and helps to assure the best possible resale price when it is time for you to make that move – up purchase.
