In 1954 a talented young plastering contractor named Harold Freure decided to build a complete home. With an eye for detail he found his homes to be very popular with the growing families in Waterloo County. From that first home on Suffolk Street over 60 years ago, the company that Mr. Freure founded has continued to grow and has built over 13,000 new homes. Freure Homes has also built schools, churches, shopping centres, offices, and factories.
Home building is a tough business, but our longevity is a testament to our commitment to quality and to customer service. We now have customers who are buying their second and third home from us. Drop in and visit one of our communities in Kitchener, Cambridge, Komoka and Stratford. We think you will find our sales people friendly and helpful while the quality of our product will speak for itself.
After building over 13,000 homes in the area, we know what it takes to build YOURS!

Back in 2006, Freure Homes teamed up with the Waterloo Regional School Board to participate in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program. This gives students a chance to participate in the construction of a home. Once the foundation is poured, and the backfilling is completed, it’s up to the students to build the home from the foundation up. A teacher with a background in construction assumes the role as the job foreman. In total, there have been 6 houses built by this program in both Kitchener and Cambridge. This great program allows students to gain experience and knowledge in the construction field to help select a career later in life.
