Whether we are building a new home or renovating an existing home our emphasis on perfection and owner involvement through the construction process is what has distinguished Dinallo and Wittrup since 1979.
Our Philosophy - Setting Trends, Not Following Them
The two-family locally owned business located in Solon, Ohio has built over 600 homes throughout the Chagrin Valley area. Dinallo and Wittrup Homes has long been a trend-setter, pioneering subdivision construction and implementing a "green" building approach before it gained popularity. With new, custom-built homes and renovation and remodeling projects that are not only structurally sound but pleasing to the eye, Dinallo and Wittrup have become the area's go-to builder, known for quality, design and most importantly, customer satisfaction.
A large number of repeat and referral clientele has benefited from the expert eyes of Rick and Neil, the dedication of skilled craftsmen and the company's basic philosophy of taking time to learn what owners want and need in their homes – from room sizes and shapes to the smallest details. That same attention to detail is also provided on home renovation and remodeling projects that enhance your current home while adding to its value.
Dinallo and Wittrup’s dedication to the building process begins well before construction begins and nothing is overlooked. With daily on-site visits, Rick and Neil fulfill their philosophy of striving for perfection and delivering the best home on time, every time, with no surprises.
