About DB Homes
Dick Burke, Jr., Owner and President of D.B. Homes, Inc. had his first exposure to the modular home business when his father began to dabble in the industry. He quickly realized it might be the opportunity he had been seeking and founded D.B. Homes, Inc. in 2001. The first office was an unmarked, family-owned garage in Dale Borough that offered no parking. Burke’s brother-in-law, Keith Skowron, was the only other employee at the time and serves as the company’s General Manager. Shortly after, D.B. Homes partnered up with Ritz-Craft Corporation, who has over 50 years of experience building modular homes and is located in Mifflinburg, PA. and currently employs an average of 10 full-time employees.
D.B. Homes has come a long way since it’s unmarked office. In October 2006, D.B. Homes opened their new Corporate Office & Design Center on Eisenhower Boulevard in Johnstown, which offers 2 luxurious kitchen samples and countless other products and options for the homes.
Another milestone for the company was the opening of their first two-story model home in August 2008. After 6 years of overwhelming success, this model is due to be replaced in the Summer/Fall of 2014 and will showcase a unique elevation and floor plan. A second model home was added in 2011 offering a ranch style home. This model was designed to accommodate the customer looking for an affordable, single level home.
The Corporate Office & Design Center is opened Monday-Thursday from 8:00am-5:00pm and Friday 8:00am-4:00pm. Weeknights and Weekends by appointment only. To tour the model homes, registration is required in the office before entering.
DB Homes helped to make this process as hassle free as possible. From start to finish there was never a day we did not feel completely secure, confident and valued as a customer. Thank you for making us feel like our home was the ONLY home you were working on. The DB Homes crew felt like family, Love you guys! Mary Ann Northern Cambria, Pa
