Chesapeake Homes is the subsidiary of Dilday Builders, Inc. which has been in business since 1979 serving the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula.
We started out constructing stick-built spec homes, then transitioned into custom homes. As our market has evolved, now we almost exclusively provide systems-built home for a discerning client base that demands quality homes delivered on-time and on-budget.
When we started, Lloyd Dilday and Evelyn Dilday were the officers in DBI and this remained until Jennifer Dilday, Lloyd and Jennifer’s daughter, came on board and has become the Secretary/Treasurer, joining Lloyd who remains the president. We started as a family business and remain so today. Most of our employees have a lengthy tenure with DBI and are considered an extension of our family. They are conscientious, hard working and talented, and only provide the best in every project at hand.
Although most of our homes are custom designed, we presently offer two fully furnished model homes for inspections and we’re located at 201 N. Main St., directly across from the new town park.
