bulletProminence Homes Inc., a quality custom home builder, was founded in 1989 by partners Mark Padrutt and Kurt Bauch. Their initial project was a speculative home in the Cross Creek (Akron) development. Since then, the Rootstown-based company has built homes for customers in Summit, Portage, Stark, Medina and Wayne counties.
bulletIn 1998 the Home Builders Association of Greater Akron named Prominence Homes its Builder of the Year.
bulletSince their company was formed, Bauch and Padrutt have adhered to a simple philosophy: Quality homes are a good value. This commitment to quality permeates all aspects of their business, beginning with the initial concept/planning and design phase and continuing through the completion of each building project.
bulletProminence Homes is dedicated to customer satisfaction. Padrutt and Bauch spend a significant amount of time with their customers at the outset of every project to ensure they fully understand the customers’ needs and desires regarding their new home. They also maintain close contact with each customer throughout the building process.
bulletProminence Homes works with a highly skilled group of tradesmen – many of whom have done work for the company since the late 1980s and early 1990s.
bulletProminence Homes customers can choose from a variety of stock plans, including colonials, ranches and one-and-a-half story homes. Any of these plans can be modified to meet an individuals customer’s needs.
bulletProminence Homes also builds completely customized homes. Padrutt and Bauch can begin with something as simple as a customer’s sketch – or they can work with any plan a customer brings to them.
bulletProminence Homes typically has one or more speculative homes under construction for prospective customers to view. They frequently showcase their work through the construction of model homes, as well.
bulletProminence Homes offers options in design and construction for individuals who are physically challenged. Lever handles rather than knob-type handles, larger doorways and handles in the tub and shower are just a few of the many options available to make life easier for customers.
bulletIn addition to being named the HBA’s 1998 Builder of the Year, Prominence Homes has earned special recognition for several of the homes it has built over the years. The company has twice earned the coveted People’s Choice Award - first place during the Fall Parade of Homes and has also garnered first place and honor awards in recent Best Homes competitions.
bulletProminence Homes is a member of the HBA of Greater Akron, and the Western Reserve HBA. Padrutt has been a trustee of the HBA of Greater Akron since 1997. The company also supports the local and national "Home Builders Care" initiative and is currently involved in the HBA’s John Brown Home restoration project in Akron.
