Tidewater Homes was established in 2014 by three natives of Jacksonville, Florida who combined have over fifty years of knowledge and experience in the home building and construction industries. As the founders, it was our desire to take that knowledge, experience and the principles acquired through our careers to create a company formed on the foundations of honesty, quality and great customer service. We strive everyday to make the home-building experience an enjoyable one.
At Tidewater we pride ourselves on constructing homes of superior quality. Each home is built with the same care, craftsmanship and attention to detail that we would put into the construction of our own personal homes, no exceptions. It’s our desire for each and every one of our homeowners to be as proud of their new home as we are proud to build it and put our name on it. We continuously look for ways to enhance our homes through the newest and most innovative products available in the marketplace so that we can deliver the best home possible.
We know that there is no substitute for superior customer service through every step of the journey you take with us. We also know that you will have many questions along the way, and we are happy to answer each and every one. We are local and we are accessible, which means we are just a phone call away. You put a tremendous amount of trust into us and we take that very seriously.
We take tremendous pride in creating home designs that are sustainable and architecturally stylish. We are involved in every phase of plan development, and the result is a well-designed, extremely livable home. Our philosophy carries over to our home customization program as well. Because we are a semi-custom builder, we can offer plan and design options that will suit your needs and wants, as well as your budget.
The Home-building Process
At Tidewater Homes we strive to provide you with the highest quality home-building experience. We are a company of friendly and approachable people who desire to build you a spectacular looking home and want you to enjoy the process along the way. One of our Tidewater Homes concierges will guide you through the process every step of the way.

Buying a new home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, which is why it’s important to ensure your home comes with protection. As a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW) builder member, Tidewater Homes provides every home we build with 10 full years of structural home warranty protection from the nation’s leading home warranty company.
What does being a 2-10 HBW member mean for your home? 2-10 HBW only accepts the best builders into their program. To become a member, Tidewater Homes went through an extensive screening process that measures our building practices against strict underwriting guidelines to ensure we maintain a high quality product in addition to a careful inspection of our workmanship.
With the purchase of your new home, you’ll receive a copy of the structural home warranty contract that explains what is covered as well as a maintenance booklet to give you tips on how to care for you home. In addition, the warranty is fully transferrable, which increases the resale value of your home.
