Meet the Builder

The builder that's trusted MORE than any other!


Lowder New Homes is part of a large family of companies called The Colonial Company, known throughout the Southeast for its financial strength, organizational strength and quality products.


Founded in 1956, Lowder New Homes has satisfied thousands of homeowners for over 60 years. In conjunction with Lowder Construction Company, Lowder New Homes repeatedly ranks as one of the nation’s largest homebuilders by numerous national trade publications. One of the largest homebuilders in the state of Alabama, Lowder New Homes produces in excess of 200 detached single-family homes annually, including home styles ranging from custom-built executive estates to garden homes. The Lowder New Homes name has become synonymous with quality homebuilding, value and customer satisfaction.

Financial Strength

Lowder New Homes’ consistently strong financial position stems from its ability to weather the cyclical nature of the homebuilding market, as part of the diverse business mix represented by the Colonial Company. This mix includes segments such as insurance, commercial and multi-family residential construction, residential single-family construction, residential real estate sales, commercial real estate sales and site development from grading to underground utilities, operating in a variety of markets located throughout the Southeastern United States.

Customer Satisfaction

Over 95 percent of Lowder New Homes’ customers would and do recommend Lowder New Homes to friends and family members, a customer satisfaction rate well in excess of the national industry standard. To maintain this level of satisfaction, Lowder New Homes implemented a customer service system which includes three milestone meetings for customers: pre-construction, pre-closing and post-closing. Additionally, builder representatives are fully trained and prepared to be available for customers seven days a week, week in and week out, to answer any and all questions they may have.
