About Us

With a dream to provide high-quality homes and the courage and ability to make it come true, Joseph A. Myers founded the company in 1973. Soon after, his son, Benjamin, joined the team to assure another generation of PA home builders in the future. With professionalism, integrity and respect guiding them, the two dedicated their life’s work to building beautiful structures that you can call home.
Today, J.A. Myers has built more than 7,000 homes and offers more than 50 distinct model home designs. Every Myers home is quality built, structurally sound and beautifully designed with many standard features that are often considered “upgrades” by other builders. Plus, all of their designs can be altered to the owner’s needs and wishes, making J.A. Myers truly custom PA home builders.
