Three Finer Things Found in Veritas Fine Homes


Veritas Fine Homes

A custom builder of the highest order, Veritas Fine Homes builds one-of-a-kind homes, every time. From its offices in Durango, Veritas works directly with owners to envision and realize dream homes in the $2 million to $10 million range on sites throughout southwestern Colorado. Second-generation builder and owner Troy Dyer enjoys every aspect of the design and development process. From sketching with clients to coordinating the fine-grain details with subcontractors, on more than 350 completed homes, Veritas drills down to understand what works best, long term. Dryer believes in cultivating relationships with clients, trade partners and product manufacturers alike to the best advantage of the finished home.

When it comes to picking the products used to build a Veritas home, Dryer insists that the most important consideration is the product’s ability to be serviced locally. Given the remoteness, homeowners could be in a bind down the line if equipment or materials used can’t be repaired in a timely manner. The second most important consideration is durability and longevity of use with limited maintenance.
