Drees Homes: A Quarter Century of Curb Appeal
Based in Ft. Mitchell, Ky., Drees Homes operates as a successful third-generation business. To encourage potential customers to take their first steps in the front door of one of the 1,600 homes they construct each year, the nationally ranked builder relies on decorative millwork products from Nu-Wood.
"For the past 25 years we've worked with Nu-Wood to develop unique entry surround systems and windows headers for our homes," says David Metz, vice president of purchasing and operations at Drees Homes. "This allows us to differentiate our product elevations from our competitor's products. The instant curb appeal we create using these decorative millwork pieces appeals to our customers for so many reasons. The stylish polyurethane products offer long-term performance, resistance to decay, and low maintenance capabilities. You can't beat that for exterior trim pieces!"
Family-owned and operated for 89 years, Drees Homes is ranked nationally as the 32nd largest homebuilder in the United States. With housing developments in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Maryland and the Washington, D.C. area, Drees Homes has also been named the 14th largest private builder in America.
"We've built our reputation one home at a time, paying special attention to detail and craftsmanship," says Metz. "It's because we have great home plans and take time to select the best products for our homes that our company has been able to sustain continued growth all these years.
"We feel our homes have tremendous curb appeal that homeowners can connect with immediately. Each house exterior is well differentiated, and the Nu-Wood decorative millwork products add to that differentiation in the marketplace. At Drees Homes, we rely on Nu-Wood for dental molding, louvers, window headers and entry surround systems to help us create low-maintenance exteriors that will appeal to our home buyers now and in the future."
Nu-Wood, a Jasper Plastics company, has created easy-to-install decorative millwork for more than 30 years. The company produces polyurethane, PVC, faux stone and brick products that are all proudly sourced, designed and manufactured in America. Lightweight Nu-Wood products resist peeling, rot, moisture and insects, making them an ideal decorative accent product for the exterior and interior of residential and commercial projects.
