SAB Homes

Since 1989, SAB Construction has provided single-family and multi-family homes to home buyers in the Kansas City metropolitan area. Owner Scott Bamesberger’s extensive construction experience, keen sense of design, quality and value, as well as a strict organizational code, have made it possible for SAB Construction to transform the stresses of the home building process into an enjoyable event for its customers.

A home is a huge investment, and buyers are often anxious as the process unfolds. To help ease these concerns and make the building process more enjoyable for our customers, SAB has established a Sales Builder Program. Along with our designer showroom and on-staff design consultant, SAB’s computer-accessible, Sales Builder Program allows customers to obtain daily updates on the progress of their home while under construction. Sales Builder also allows the customer to shop for options and upgrades and download photos of their new home in progress to share with friends and relatives.

We have found Sales Builder to be an easy and time-saving way to benefit both home buyer and builder — and keep the positive excitement of the creation of your new home at the forefront. And as Kansas City homebuilders, our construction company, SAB Construction, has more flexibility in home design and building style than ordinary new home builders. Each SAB construction project schedule is updated daily by our field superintendents in order to give our home buyers and subcontractors the absolute latest information on the progress of every home. This strict approach to monitoring construction progress means fewer delays and errors and has created a positive overall experience for all involved. When a home is complete, we have an in-house service coordinator to answer your questions and assist with callbacks.

In recent years, SAB Construction has begun to build in Kansas City’s Northland, while continuing to maintain and expand in communities located in Lee’s Summit, Raymore and Kansas City metropolitan areas. At SAB, we continue to search for quality communities in which to build our award-winning products. We strive constantly to improve value without reducing the quality of our product.
