Our Story

“My father and mother founded the business 50 years ago; they collaborated, taught me the craft, and encouraged me to work in the field. I studied all the critical components of construction from the ground up, including siding, painting, and trim carpentry, and I was able to pass on that knowledge to the Natale team.
My staff and I recognize that starting the process of building a home is typically the most important decision a homeowner will ever make, so we've streamlined our construction process and recently completed the development of 25 new neighborhood home plans. All our team members recently spent a year and a half methodically studying our previous plans and incorporating the knowledge we acquired from previous experiences to create plans that we are truly very proud of.
I want all our clients to know that at the end of the day, they'll be living in a house - their Forever Home - that was built correctly, solidly, and will stand the test of time. We sincerely care at Natale Builders, throughout the entire process and afterward, we care about our customers and the home we're building”.
-Angelo Natale

We recently moved into our new Natale home, I could not be happier! The home is beautiful & well built. The attention to details is priceless. We built the home during the pandemic so there were many setbacks. However the owner Angelo & his father, would stop by regularly to check on progress and make sure we were happy and well taken care of. They and their staff were always a phone call away. Mr. Natale Sr. even took down my kitchen backsplash when I didn't like it!!

We had a great experience working with Natale. They helped us make sure we had a solid piece of land to build on and helped every step of the way. We were able to take a sample blueprint layout and customize every space to be ours. They were great during the build and after by taking to time to make sure everything looked the way we wanted and was working. Also the geothermal and solar installed has worked perfectly from the start!
