About McLain Homes
McLain Homes, LLC , founded in 2002, is the culmination of a lifetime of experience in real estate and construction, and has a solid reputation for building beautiful homes and stunning neighborhoods.
Owner Bryan McLain grew up in a family of builders in the rural area of Covington, Louisiana. His impeccable workmanship and commitment to customer satisfaction were passed down to him by his father and grandfather. Each of his homes is built with a lifestyle in mind.
Bryan's enthusiasm for artistic, old world design has made him one of south Louisiana's most sought after builders. His passion for antique architectural woods, old bricks and authentic European finishes and a lifetime of experience are the tools he uses to create the "McLain Home." Bryan's wife Sylvia's love of nature and horticulture also play a key role when locating properties. Soft hills and unique land topography are features in many McLain Homes.
Bryan and Sylvia work together to create living environments that are truly special. Their family village type neighborhoods offer parks, mature trees, nature trails, tree houses, baseball playing fields and soft streetscapes lit with gas lanterns and cobbled streets.

McLain Homes is building relationships in Acadiana one home at a time and continue to be a major factor in the growth of our community.

When building your new home, it is important to be aware of proper insurance coverage. McLain Homes feels a responsibiltiy to each of their clients to recommend that you take time to review the New Home Warranty Act. Its' purpose is to provide state legislation that outlines the responsibility of the builder. The act states that "The legislature finds a need to promote commerce in Louisiana by providing clear, concise, and mandatory warranties for the purchasers and occupants of new homes in Louisiana and by providing for the use of home owners’ insurance as additional protection for the public against defects in the construction of new homes.
This need can be met by providing a warranty for a new home purchaser defining the responsibility of the builder to that purchaser and subsequent purchasers during the warranty periods provided herein. The warranty, which is mandatory in most cases, shall apply whether or not building code regulations are in effect in the location of the structure, thereby promoting uniformity of defined building standards. Additionally, all provisions of this Chapter, shall apply to any defect although there is no building standard directly regulating the defective workmanship or materials."
As a new homeowner you should also be aware of the "Builders Risk" policy. This is a policy to protect your new construction from things like fire, wind, and sometimes theft. Your coverage will be outlined specifically by the company providing the policy. McLain Homes requires this coverage on all new construction.
McLain Homes operates under the state recommended guidelines and is in compliance with its' workers' compensation and general liability laws. Policy information is available upon request.
