Mantis Construction Company has been serving and satisfying customers throughout Philadelphia’s Main Line and the Delaware Valley for over 30 years. We are a full service residential builder specializing in unique and spectacular custom homes and renovations. Our reputation for quality and commitment has earned us the trust and confidence of our customers.

“The floor plan has become an essential part of the custom home and renovation project. When working with clients, we often improve layout during construction. Plans and computer virtual tours provide helpful but limited understanding of the space; it is only when the home is under construction do they finally understand and appreciate the their new home environment. You just don’t want a builder who puts ‘sticks and stones’ together but a builder who understands and will follow through all phases of your project with extensive experience and interest as we will provide.”

The beginning… Home owners have a lot of ideas. There are those who want a new dream home, and then there are those who have a home and location they are happy with but want additional or improved space. Ideas come from an architect, visiting a friends home, reading home magazines, a home they passed by, even television. Through out all this time, they have been anxiously developing a new vision. Homeowners are always asking “What can we do?”, “When can we do this?”, “How much will it cost?” This is a very important part of the construction phase. Developing a relationship and working with a builder at this stage is essential. We will spend time listening and understanding what you are trying to achieve and with our experience and knowledge walk you through, formulate, and develop a plan and layout that would transfer your vision into a reality and within budget. We can also collaborate with your architect or you can work with our architects. Difficult or structurally challenging projects are easily handled; Stephen, along with his extensive construction experience is a structural engineer and graduate of Drexel University.

We strive for perfection in craftsmanship, utilizing the latest in construction innovations and products. Your project will be built with exceeding standards. Selecting among the vast amount of products can be an overwhelming experience. You will work directly with our designers and suppliers taking advantage of their knowledge of all the different products and selections available. Renovation work is especially unique; the construction can be a “life style” compromising situation. We take great care and attention to maintaining the most suitable and comfortable home environment while the process proceeds.

Our relationship with customers is lasting. They have the confidence knowing we are readily available to service and warrant our work. They have a piece of mind their new home or renovation is backed by our commitment to quality and excellence. In addition to the manufacture warranties for products, you will also receive a minimum one year warranty from us.
