We don't think about houses. We think about homes.

More thought built in
Our customer charter

Porter Davis isn’t just any building company.

We started with a bunch of guys who wanted to make a difference by treating customers with respect and by carefully thinking things through to deliver homes that meet your changing lifestyle needs. That DNA lives on in our business. It’s driven by our founder, expressed in our belief and reflected in our manifesto and comes to life in how we treat you.

Let’s face it, building a new home is a BIG deal – and you’re bound to have questions. We asked for feedback from customers and when necessary we have made the changes necessary to ensure we are giving you all the support you need. Our promise to you is that you will always have someone to talk to if you have any questions along the way.

You want your home to be perfect. We get that. That’s why we employ detail obsessed designers and builders. They obsess over things like quality and craftsmanship. Some might say they are perfectionists. We think that’s a good thing.

Build more beautiful

What we live by

  • Build with award winning design

    Our homes have been nationally awarded as some of the best homes. And it's that award-winning thinking that's built into your new home.

  • Build with award winning interiors

    Your journey, your blank canvas. Our team of qualified interior designers will help uncover your style and build a home that's the ultimate expression of you.

  • Build with more personalisation

    Whether you've got a very specific idea of what you want, or you have no idea and need the help of an expert, first we’ll listen, then think, then get obsessed with how it looks.

  • Build with our total respect

    If you want no surprises, no hidden extras, and fixed start and finish dates, then we respect that. So that’s what you get.

Our promise to you

If it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work for us.

At Porter Davis we drive a customer-obsessed culture. From the day you reach out to us to the many years after you have moved in - we want your journey with Porter Davis to be a positive and rewarding experience.
