Custom Home Builders in Houston – What Does Alleanza Mean?

Alleanza is an Italian word for covenant. When you share your dreams and your plans with us, we will make promises and commitments to you that we take seriously. We stand by each of our custom built homes in Houston with a lifetime guarantee. This is our covenant – our promise - to you and your family. We will do what we say we’re going to do, and we’ll exceed your expectations every step of the way.

Alleanza’s History

We started as custom home builders in Houston in 2007. All our homes have been distinguished by their design, custom features, and high quality. Our company started during an inconvenient economic period for real estate, but we knew that custom built homes in Houston had potential, and we knew we were the best at what we do. When you provide high quality and outstanding customer service, people will always want to work with you. We’ve found that to be true, and by the end of 2017, we will have completed our 50th custom built home in Houston. We’re proud of that as well as the many relationships forged along the way.

What Makes Alleanza Unique?

Our designs are unique, compared to other home builders in Houston. The architects we work with are talented and they design truly custom and high-end homes.

Our reputation for doing what we say we will do and standing behind our work is well established. There’s a lot of credibility associated with our name and our ability to create custom built homes in Houston. We’ve been building custom homes for 14 years, and people know we can be trusted.

Our process is seamless for the future homeowner. We make it fun and managed and predictable. We are constantly communicating with you, your architect, and the entire construction team. Everything is transparent and predictable and the end result is exactly what you envisioned when we first started talking about your dream home.


This review is long overdue. We built our dream home with Shawn and the Alleanza team – and every day for the past two+ years that we have been living in this home, we are grateful for how amazing it is. Every. Single. Day. We love everything about our home, every room. It was worth the wait, the ups and downs, the delays – all normal items when building a custom home. The one item we will single Shawn out for is this: he will stick with you and he will be fair. He will see things through, and he will use reason and good judgement in difficult times, always standing by you so you feel supported. I know friends and family members who have had horrific experiences building custom homes, but that was not our experience. We would build again with Shawn, without any hesitation, and would highly (highly) recommend him and his team to anyone building a custom home. Further, we consider Shawn and his team to be part of our family now. I believe this is common in the Alleanza family of homeowners, but not common elsewhere. A couple of other points worth calling out: Shawn worked very well with our architect and our designer – it was a perfect triangle of artists and creators who in many cases can easily butt heads. Yes, there were strong opinions here and there, but everyone worked very well with each other, respectfully and professionally – it was a dream team. Second, Alleanza’s framers and foundation team – both – are beyond rock solid. We had a pool table installed upstairs. The team has been installing pool tables in high end homes for over 30 years. We were told all tables require a “shim” upon installation to even out the table so that everything is level. When they got to our installation, there was no “shim” required. The team told us this was the first house they had ever installed a second floor pool table where the floor was perfectly level. A big shout out to those crews on Shawn’s team! Overall, we support a 5 star rating for Shawn and his team – and our house supports it as well.Read More

Shawn and Carlos were great to work with throughout the entire process of building our custom home. The Alleanza team is professional, honest, and always follows through on their commitments (100%! - before or after your move in). The team worked tirelessly to get us in by our target date. If we had any concerns, they went the extra mile to make sure everything was correct even if we tore a few things up!! It wasn't just about the inside of our home either. The team worked with the custom pool designer, landscaper, and artificial turf crew for our soccer ready back yard. You dream it and they can deliver it!Read More

I bought a house newly built by Alleanza. I've bought homes on spec before, and built custom, and I can say confidently that the build quality on this Alleanza house is fantastic. Shawn and his crew also did modification for me prior to move in. Shawn and his workers are professional, timely and responsive. I would definitely use him as a GC in future for a custom home or renovations. I especially want to call out the custom carpentry, which is amazing and far exceeds typical builder quality work.Read More

This was the second time working with Shawn and the Alleanza team building a custom home. The team is extremely trustworthy and can take on even the most complex projects. We used a different architect the second time around (George Allen Cole - who is awesome!) and Alleanza did a great job incorporating every last detail from the plans. They are always up front about challenges and are quick to provide solutions. They always follow through and even after move-in, they go above and beyond to deliver a top notch experience. Highly recommend!Read More

Shawn and his team are absolutely fabulous to work with - incredibly professional, kind, and responsive. We went through the process of designing our custom build with Shawn and were always impressed with his good nature, honest and professional responses, and desire to help us achieve our vision. This takes patience and Shawn has it. I highly recommend Shawn and his team to those looking to take on the project of a custom home. Shawn is ready to get into the project with you, and be a true partner at every step.Read More
