Tudor homes were brought to the U.S. by European-trained architects during the 19th century. An eclectic, asymmetrical home that reflected homes built in the late medieval and early renaissance period, this style became widely popular during the 1920s and 1930s. Recognized by the steeply pitched gable roofs, brick exteriors, hand-hewn, half-timbering masonry and stonework, and leaded glass windows, Tudor homes put emphasis on permanent materials and a bold architectural framework.
This list presents contractors who are capable of successfully crafting Tudor homes. Aside from the years of experience gathered by these firms, they have created homes that helped generate features in Luxe, Architectural Digest, Veranda, and Professional Builder.
