Central Ohio’s Premier Home Building Team

There aren’t many builders that can say they’ve built homes for multiple generations within a family, but we can. And that’s the kind of meaningful legacy on which we’ve built our business.

Our Story

Our passion for designing and building custom homes started almost 30 years ago when Bart Denlinger left a successful career in commercial construction to focus on the residential side of the craft. Falling in love with the town of Troy, he and his wife, Teri, decided to put down roots here. They bought five property lots on which they built five homes: four were sold, and one they kept to raise their family in.

Today, having built over 500 homes, Denlinger & Sons Builders has solidified our reputation as the area’s premier custom home builder. Our company name is a promise that you will have a hands-on partner dedicated to bringing to life your vision for your new home.

Bart is keeping the business in the family, partnering with his son, Todd, whose training and construction management experience provides additional depth to our offerings, including a range of affordable, non-custom, expertly designed options for young families and downsizing empty-nesters.

We’re proud that Denlinger & Sons homes have been an integral part of growing our local communities.

Our Mission

Excellence is always built from the ground up.

Our Values


When it comes to designing and building a home, the details are as important as the big picture.


The only way to ensure our clients are completely satisfied is through continual, clear and open communication.


We never take for granted the trust our clients put in us to create their homes.


As builders of homes, family connection is the very heart of what we do.
