A Word From The Builders

Canzano Building Company and JDM Building Company were originally founded on a single, guiding principle: To create realistic expectations in the building process, through honesty and integrity.  Since their formation, back in 1987, and now, backed by 125 years combined experience, these companies have thrived and prospered on that same principle and continues to do so today!

Through the use of thorough and complete contract documents, we disclose to our clients, the precise specifications and features of every home we build. Through the use of state-of-the-art, construction management software, we have designed and implemented a system in which we convey to every subcontractor, a detailed “Work Order”. This “Work Order” encompasses all aspects of a subcontractor’s scope-of-work for a particular home, including standard, as well as optional features alike, and is issued from our main office to essentially every subcontractor on a given job. It is through this system that we enable our field personnel to act as quality control inspectors rather than caretakers. We feel that our Field Personnel’s time is better spent insuring that each subcontractor is performing their work in a timely and professional-like manner, rather than instructing the subcontractor as to the specifics of the work he shall perform. It is not only through this system that we are able to minimize errors in the construction process and deliver to our customers their dream home, on time with excellent quality and craftsmanship, with character that is shaped on the customers’ needs and wishes.

Our History

Canzano Contracting Corporation was formed by brothers Nick and Rob Canzano in 1991 with a vision to build quality homes at a reasonable price in the greater Southeastern Michigan area.  JDM Building Company, LLC was founded by Domenic and Joseph Mancinelli, as a father and son team, with the same vision. Since that time, while completing the construction of over 600 new homes together and the development of numerous new home communities in the Tri-County area, they have seen that vision become a reality.

Emphasis on high quality standard features, as well as a generous offering of optional (upgraded) features has become the hallmark of their approach in creating value in new home construction.  Historically, when comparing the standard features offered by other builders in similar communities, one will find that our standard features far exceed those of other builders in terms of not only product specifications and product selection but in terms of brand recognition as well.  It is our objective to build quality and savings into every home we build.

Compare and see the difference.  We invite you to discuss building your dream home in one of our communities or on a lot you own.  Please contact us to start planning the ‘HOME OF YOUR DREAMS’.
