For more than 25 years, Bontrager Builders Group, Inc. has served as one of Northwest Florida’s premier luxury custom homebuilders, with expertise in residential construction, commercial construction and luxury remodeling.

The secret to our success lies in the story behind the business. Stemming from a childhood passion for building, President Roger Bontrager got his start in the construction field as a member of a framing crew, before moving on to master finish carpentry and trim work, and ultimately, earning a contractor’s license and founding Bontrager Builders Group, Inc. His first custom home project, which totaled more than 12,000 square feet and included an indoor gymnasium, was featured in the 1995 Parade of Homes, the front page of the local paper and aired on the MTV show “Cribs” for three months. From day one, our focus has been on more than building the perfect home or commercial space – we aim to build long-lasting client relationships that live up to our guiding principles: honesty, integrity, and quality.
