KB Home (website)

We want to build you the home you've always dreamed of. The home that's been coming together in your imagination for years. The backdrop of your future memories. And we want to build it well, at a price you can afford. This is the idea that has driven our work since 1957, and the reason we set our standards high. During construction, we use dependable building materials and implement a building process that features a number of checkpoints and inspections. And we offer a 10-year limited warranty to give you peace of mind (see KB Home Limited Warranty for full details). We're not satisfied until you feel your experience has been a 10. It's all part of KB Home's everyday commitment to providing quality homes and outstanding customer service.
