our company


Daybreak Custom Homes was established in 2000 with the mindset of building architecturally stunning homes, while providing “A Higher Standard of Personal Service”

Over the last 20 years, Daybreak Custom Homes has built luxury homes all over Houston and it’s surrounding counties in many master planned communities including Fulbrook, Royal Oaks Country Club, Bender’s Landing, Weston Lakes, Bayou Oaks at Cinco Ranch, and Kingwood. We also specialize in building on acreage property and in most subdivisions with our Custom Build On Your Property program

Both Mike and Ray, the Daybreak owners, have followed in their father’s footsteps in the luxury home building industry, and are now 20 year veterans of the craft. The brothers grew up learning about construction and working in the field. They learned the business from the ground up.. From summer jobs picking up trash, cleaning construction sites, and doing ‘punch-out’ work, to scheduling trades, working with clients and learning how to manage the complex flow of construction and learning the complexities of running a business.

Mike, an A&M finance grad., manages the company’s finances and purchasing, while Ray manages the company’s client interactions and marketing. Together, they complement each other with their varying strengths and they work as a team to run the business and give excellent service and knowledge to their clients. They take the time, as a team, to work directly with you from design through build. This is a huge asset as they are able to provide two different professional perspectives and give you a more ‘well rounded’ approach in helping you make solid building decisions.

“We have learned so much in the last 21 years and we want to share that knowledge with you…” They understand that your recommendation is worth more than any advertising that can be purchased and will make your satisfaction their number one priority!

"We want to go above and beyond normal expectations, forming a lasting partnership with our clients… We strive to fully understand our client’s vision and combine it with our experience, in order to take that dream home and make it even better! Together, we execute the building of their dream home and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime…!”

“We understand that your decision to purchase a new home is one of the most important choices of your lifetime. There are many builders that can build a home for a competitive price, but most seem to forget the reason why they have the opportunity to build in the first place, YOU the homeowner. Our quality and attention to detail speaks for itself, but there is nothing more important than forming a trusting relationship and giving the personal service that you deserve. We will be there for you throughout the process, giving you our honest opinions, and make sure you are completely satisfied.”

-Mike Hurlbut
Co-Owner Daybreak Custom Homes

“We have a team of project managers that is second to none. Our primary goal is to build your home with impeccable quality and care. We want you to be involved in the process and well informed on a weekly basis. We don’t only want this to be your ‘Dream Home’ …We want the process to be like your “Dream Building Process…!”
