King Homes works hard to make sure customers come first and are completely satisfied with there New Home Purchase, Remodeling Project, Home Additions, Realtor Services, Self Builder Program, and Commercial Services. Here are some Testimonials from valued customers (C) and vendors (V).
I have worked with King Homes, specifically Chuck King, for a number of years. He built a custom house for my wife and I in 1999. We also had him add a second fireplace to our home as well as other additions over the time we owned the house. He also responded quickly to our need for repairs after Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Ike.
Hurricane Ike required very extensive repairs and as always, we were very pleased with his attention to detail, our desired schedule and his ability to understand our wishes.
I have since used King Homes to develop some wooded property into a fine retirement area for my wife and I with another custom house for us and also one for my daughter and her family. We have had many people tell us the area looks like a park. This work was completed in a very rural area with electricity as the only available utility. This required the installation of sewer treatment facilities as well as clean water supplies and roads.
We currently reside full time in these homes.
I would recommend King Homes for any size project without reservations. Problems will always occur during any project, but the willingness to quickly address and solve problems to our satisfaction is the reason my recommendation comes without any reservations.

Jan and I wanted once more, a little more formally, to tell you how much we appreciate the magnificent job you did in remodeling our kitchen. It is absolutely beautiful and we are completely delighted with it.
You have been a pleasure from the start of this project to its completion. Having spent thirty eight years in the banking business in Beaumont, much of it as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the region's largest bank, I have worked with some of the area's finest home builders. But,, I have not seen any more capable than you. You are a true professional. Not only are you a perfectionist, but your conscientiousness and attention to detail are extraordinary. Your careful onsite supervision and your excellent communication exceeded our expectations.
Thank you for completing this job efficiently, timely, and making it an enjoyable experience for us. We highly recommend you and we appreciate you more than you can know.
During the last several years, Chuck King and his company have done exemplary construction work for me. Having completed extensive repair work for an insurance company, he was recommended to me. Without question, he knows what to do and is conscientious in completing his work. I am confident in recommending him.
This letter is provided to document that "King Homes" was the contractor of record for the project referenced above. This project was a Texas Community Development Block Grant Program administered by the office of rural community affairs (ORCA) utilizing federal funding.
This particular project involved the replacement of private sanitary sewer service lines which ran from the private welling to the roadway right-of-way to tie into the existing city sewer cleanout. As such, temporary working easements were obtained to allow the contractor to work on private property in close proximity to the residential structure. Each interaction involved contacting the homeowner to coordinate replacement of the sewer service, which meant for a short period of time the homeowner would be without sewer service. The contractor maintained good communication throughout the project duration and exhibited good public relation skills with the citizens of China through the discourse of his work.
Through my law practice, I have had the distinct pleasure of having King Homes, Inc. as a client since 1995. Over that span of time, I have handled a number of matters for the company, primarily having to do with such topics as corporate matters, construction contracts and construction loan financing. Invariably, the principals of King Homes, Inc. have always chosen the "high road" in their dealings with customers and other businesses; they have demonstrated and earned my complete trust and confidence, and they are a credit to the construction industry in Southeast Texas.
After Hurricane Rita, King Homes, Inc. repaired substantial damage to my home in Hardin County. After Hurricane Ike, my home was again damaged, and King Homes, Inc. repaired that damage as well. On both of those occasions, the work which they performed was done promptly and professionally, and all of my questions (including those of my insurance carrier) were answered without delay.
I have no hesitation in recommending King Homes, Inc. as a contractor to perform business for you, or for any other entity or individual.
Yours truly, Moore Landrey, L.L.P. Kerwin B. Stone
Having experienced the building process with custom designed homes in the past with other builders, we were very pleased with the entire building process experience with King Homes for our newly constructed, custom designed home.
From the design phase through final construction completion, we felt that King Homes worked very closely with us in every aspect. Recommendations were provided to us throughout the process to ensure that we completed our project both on-time and on- budget.
We were kept completely informed and involved in the construction progress by King Homes to make sure the end result matched precisely with our vision of the home we had before construction began.
The final result of our project proved to be a quality constructed, energy efficient home that we are very much pleased with.
King Homes was highly recommended to us for a remodel job at our home in Orange. The remodel we were doing was not a huge job, but it did require the removal of a load-bearing wall, which we were not willing to trust just anyone to do. Mr. King visited our home to look over our request, explained how he and his crew would execute the project, and within a few days assembled a bid for us.
Once the project began, we were very impressed by the courtesy and level of professionalism of the various trades as they came in to perform their tasks, from demolition to completion. The work was accomplished to our complete satisfaction, in a reasonable amount of time, and at a reasonable cost.
We give you our highest recommendation to use Chuck King and his staff and crew of professionals at King Homes when you are building a new home or remodeling your current home or facility.
In February of 2007, I bought a home that King Homes was building in the Fairfield subdivision in Beaumont, TX. At the time, only the slab had been poured, therefore, I was able to customize several aspects of the home during the building process. Mr. King was extremely professional during the entire building process. In the beginning, he outlined for me the entire process since I had never built a home before and told me in general what decisions would need to be made and when. As the building progressed, he gave me ample notice when it was time to make decisions. He and his staff were always available to answer my questions or address my concerns as were his general foreman and his staff. Mr. King personally visited the site many times to make sure that everything was progressing as promised. I dealt personally with a few of his contractors, such as the painter and the granite company and they were just as conscientious and professional. The home was completed within a week of the original estimated completion date.
Overall, I was extremely pleased with King Homes during the construction phase and extremely pleased with the home itself. It is with no reservations that I am able to recommend Mr. King and King Homes.
King Homes built a 1200sf home in Lumberton for my mother several years ago after Hurricane Ike destroyed her home. I provide Chuck a plan view of a single story house that would be the right size for my mother. After I made some changes to the lay-out of the house and specified the trim, Chuck got started. He said that he would have the house completed in ~100 days and he kept his word. the quality of the workmanship was superb. We have not had any warranty issues with the house or appliances Chuck installed.
I had several companies provide proposals for construction of the house and Chuck submitted the most competitive bid. I made several changes to the house plans after start of construction, and the cost of those changes were very reasonably priced.
Without any reservations, I can recommend King Homes for any new home construction.

King Homes carried all the approved insurance limits throughout the projects including Payment and Performance Bonds, General Liability, Builders Risk, Auto Insurance and was worker Compensation compliance.
We have called upon King Homes on other projects we were interested in pursuing as we value their knowledge and opinion in the construction field.
We would not hesitate to recommend King Homes for any construction Project.
For the past eleven (11) years, I have provided surveying and engineering services for Mr. Chuck King of King Homes and have been associated with him through our membership in the Home Builders Association of Southeast Texas. It is my opinion that Mr. King constructs a quality building, giving attention to detail and being certain that the building meets the more stringent guidelines of the Texas Department of Insurance for structures in hurricane prone areas. I very much appreciate the integrity Mr. King displays in our professional relationship and look forward to working with him on future construction projects.
I have been doing business with Chuck King and Terrell Woosley from King Homes, Inc. For quite a number of years. During that time I have found them to be hard-working, ethical, and truly interested in meeting the needs of their customers.
I have not had a closing with them yet that the customers were not completely satisfied and anxious to close and move into their beautiful home. One of them almost always attends their closing so I have the opportunity to see them interact with their customer. It has always been a pleasant experience with good report between them and the customer.
Both Chuck and Terrell are good friends and valued customers of myself and Texas Regional Title. If you need any further information, please feel free to contact me.
It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation of Chuck King. Chuck has been doing business with Orange County Building Materials since the Lumberton location opened in early 2000. He has had an account with us since June 8, 2000 and has maintained a successful line of credit for over ten years.
It is my opinion, due to my experience with Mr.King, that he is a highly qualified and successful businessman.
After hurricane Ike, our office facilities were in need of renovation. After many bids and visiting with several contractors, we elected King Homes to remodel our offices. Chuck King and his staff were professional to work with throughout the remodeling process and they even offered us advice on how to save money, as well as, what plans may not be best for us and our "office design". His team was always on time, professional and very courteous during the process.
I would recommend King Homes for any business or home construction or remodeling.

After Hurricane Rita left a path of destruction throughout Jefferson County in 2005, our Texas State Optical office was left with substantial damage. The entire roof was lost from the Dowlen Road Center where our office is located.
My partner, Leigh Kimball, and I contacted King Homes for a bid to get our optometric office back in order. We found their bid reasonable and comprehensive.
We had a trying time dealing with our insurance company. Because of an inordinate time procuring and insurance settlement, we were extremely interested in returning to operations as soon as possible. Amazingly, not only did King Homes finish our project ahead of schedule, they came in under budget. Additionally, the quality of workmanship exceeded our expectations.
It is without reservation that I can wholeheartedly recommend King Homes.
