Who We Are

Prime Homes has dedicated itself to supplying western central Connecticut with the highest quality homes for the past 24 years. These homes stand out in design and craftsmanship while blending beautifully with the rural and suburban landscapes they graciously inhabit. The commitment shows.


I have had the pleasure of working with Jerome Bertuglia and Prime Homes, Inc. as an architect for several years now. We have worked together on multiple new construction and remodel projects. During this time, I have come to appreciate first hand the respect and manner in which Prime Homes works to provide their clients with beautiful and creative workmanship individualized for each house or remodel project. I value the high quality of craftsmanship that they put into each of their projects. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Jerome and his team to anyone who is looking for a good working partnership and excellent quality of work.

In January 2008 we hired Prime Homes to do a complete renovation of our approximately 6,000 square foot Modernist glass and stucco home. This is not a typical New England contemporary house, nor was it a typical renovation project. We chose Jerome because of his stellar reputation AND because he has the eye of an artist. He was the only one of all the builders we interviewed who understood that the clean, sophisticated and minimalist look we wanted could only be achieved with absolute attention to details. We are still thrilled with the results. Jerome's crew and his subs are professional, neat, do work of the highest quality and are delightful to work with. Jerome is exceptionally honest and trustworthy and was extremely budget conscious during the project, even as my husband and I expanded its scope to include outdoor hardscape and landscape. We've recommended Jerome to several friends who have been just as happy with the process and the outcome as we were. Finally, we have done major work on 4 previous houses, but this is the first time our builder has become our friend!Read More

Jerome Bertuglia of Prime Homes helped us completely change our home. Our home was old and had absolutely no character. It now looks and feels like a new home, yet it still fits into our neighborhood beautifully. We tackled this overhaul in three separate projects, always relying on our expert builder to give us long term sound advise. Jerome has the expertise to handel any problem we came across. Eventually every room was remodeled and updated. This was no easy task due to the fact that we lived in the house during all three renovations. I believe this speaks highly of Jerome's foresight, planning, and amazing team and staff.Read More

In 2011 we hired Prime Homes to complete a total restoration and feature addition on a home they had built 10 years earlier. Jerome is a unique builder in that he possesses skill on both the building and design side. His attention to detail and sensitivity to design, including scale, material use and finishes, exceeded our expectations and helped deliver a superior outcome. We would hire him and his team again without hesitation for a new build or remodel.Read More

Jerome Bertuglia and his company built our home in 2007. The process and the product was entirely professional and exemplary. The house was delivered on time and on budget. Jerome has an eye and an instinct for design as well as construction details and his many recommendations both before and during construction made the end product even better. Since then, he has always been available for additional work and upgrades as he takes great pride in his customers and his homes. He does not forget about his customers!Read More

We worked with Prime Homes, Inc. for the construction of our first custom home (approx. 5400 SF). Jerome Bertuglia was the utmost professional from the very beginning and we continued our relationship with him throughout the entire 13 years we lived in the house. As this was our first new house build, he guided us throughout the entire process and answered all our questions open and honestly. Jerome is not satisfied until all aspects of the project are done to the highest quality and his subcontractors are top notch. Jerome's attention to detail is unparalleled and we could not be happier with the end product. I am pleased to call Jerome not only our builder, but a dear friend.Read More

Jerome Beruglia of Prime Homes built us an exceptional home of high quality and design, all within budget. He was excellent to work with, always. After seven years we hired Prime Homes to build an addition. It was seamless and beautiful, just like the original.Read More
