Who We Are

Established in 1992, Homer Contracting Inc. is one of New England’s top-rated contractors. Based, and founded, in Arlington, Massachusetts, Homer Contracting began as a painting contractor. While still keeping our status as an industry leader in painting, we have simultaneously evolved into a full service general contractor. Our experience in finishing buildings has allowed us to bring unparalleled quality and attention to detail to our general contracting work, which inspires our clients to work with us time and time again. Homer specializes in complex projects in the academic, commercial, residential, federal, state, and historic restoration markets. We attribute our success to three qualities: our stability, our self-performance and our culture.

How we do it


Careful but steady growth has allowed Homer to survive, and thrive, over the past three decades. Conservative by nature, we make sure to provide our clients the highest quality work while at the same time having an open and honest dialogue about the intricacies of each individual project.

Homer is in the business of building relationships and will stand by our work long after your project is completed.


Homer Contracting is a collaborative, family owned, and close-knit firm.  The majority of our project managers, supervisors, and field personnel have worked together for at least five years and some for almost twenty-five.

Our trust in each other inspires open communication with owners, architects, and subcontractors which results in efficient problem solving, and most of all, the development of long-lasting relationships.


While most construction firms outsource their labor, Homer Contracting has the ability to self perform in five key trades. These include our original trade, painting, as well as carpentry, masonry, waterproofing, and general labor.

This allows us to have a better knowledge of the work, which in the end greatly benefits the client by: providing more accurate estimates, offering on-site solutions to the unknowns that accompany every project, and guaranteeing a high level of quality whether we are self-performing or subcontracting the work.
