About Us

We at Kensington Custom Builders help make our customer’s dreams come true. We build custom homes of any size or type. From a charming 1400sq ft split ranch to beautiful farmhouses all the way to a three story home with custom exposed beams and elevators. We help our customers make their dream a reality.


The initial founders of Kensington Custom Builders are Steve Porter and Mike Primovero,  who are well-respected, hard-working contractors from Northern Ohio. They were tired of seeing subpar work being performed while homeowners were forking over their hard earned money for unrealistically high priced work. They made the decision that the only thing they could do was to change that themselves, one customer at a time.

Currently, Mike is in charge of field operations and Steve handles all business operations. Mike began building homes in the early 1990’s with his previous company, and has since built over 200 custom homes as an independent home builder. Due to his vast knowledge and extensive building wisdom, Mike will be with you every step of the way, from blueprints and lot purchase to picking paint colors and carpeting. With Mike’s vast knowledge and experience in home building he is unmatched by many.

Steve began as an independent business owner in 2004 and has since founded and managed numerous companies. Steve’s last venture was running an operation that grossed over $15 million a year in sales and provided employment and contracting positions to well over 40 men and women in Ohio and throughout the U.S.  Steve is an astute business man and is dedicated to the American Dream and helping people achieve it through home ownership. Steve has been building for over five years and has set up strategic partnerships with all our home good suppliers to allow all of our custom home customers the chance at sourcing exactly what they want in their home, from rare tile, to custom exposed trusses to magnificent landscaping, we can do it all.

We at Kensington Custom Builders believe in honesty, integrity and putting the customer first. We refuse to lower ourselves to subpar work and materials, and we will not over-price or over-leverage ourselves! Our philosophy at  Kensington Custom Builders is “When Only the BEST will do”!


(Some of the currently areas we are building in are in Medina and Summit County which include the City of Medina, Seville, Lafayette, Wadsworth, Westfield, Richfield, Hudson, and Sharon Center, to name a few.)
