Welcome to Wirth Development

Builders of the Finest Custom Homes in Chesapeake, Suffolk and across Hampton Roads


Wirth Development Corporation was founded in 1988 by Chip Wirth Jr. and his wife Patty. Our firm was built on major home renovations and custom homes. Later the company expanded into commercial projects and custom single-family homes across greater Hampton Roads. Whatever the development project, the Wirth team goes the extra mile to ensure clients are satisfied. Chip says, “We’re going to do what it takes to get it done.”

What sets Wirth Development Corporation apart is the relationships they have maintained with subcontractors and vendors for over two decades. Clients know they can count on exceptional service and product consistency, regardless of economic swings.

When you partner with Wirth, you get the whole package. Years of experience in various arenas show clients that builders at Wirth are committed to constructing high-caliber projects on time and on budget. Chip sums it up best, “We offer people a great combination of quality and price.”
