Graham Builders has built hundreds of beautiful multigenerational and single family homes over the past 27 years. As Oahu’s most experienced locally-owned home design and general contractor, our homes are attractive, durable and built to each homeowner’s vision and budget. Our experienced staff is professional, courteous and enjoyable to work with. Here are the top reasons why homeowners choose Graham Builders for their home design and construction.
Dedicated to educating Oahu’s homeowners
One reason people choose Graham Builders is because our company makes great efforts to provide each homeowner with tools to support success. Graham Builders understands how intimidating a home construction project can be. We know this isn’t an everyday event and most homeowners lack the know-how in home building or remodeling.
To give the public a good start, Graham Builders hosts a free “how-to” home construction seminar. This workshop gives attendees a good understanding of where they should start, what they need and how they can reduce the stress that often accompanies one of the largest investments in their lives.
Personal architectural designer and project manager
Another reason clients rave about Graham Builders is that we provide clients with the strongest team possible. Homeowners meet directly with their own Graham Builders designer and project manager. This duo continues continues to educate and help clients understand the process of designing a home that is functional and realistic for the budget.
It is rare in Hawaii for a design build firm to have a design team on staff. Most companies outsource this position. But at Graham Builders, architectural designers are employees of the company. This worthwhile investment provides our customers with custom-fit, well-designed homes.
Multigenerational and barrier-free experts
Just as important, clients feel safe knowing they are working with experts in barrier-free living and multi-family dynamics. Many of our clients want to help their family members remain at home as they age. Parents look for ways to help their adult children afford Hawaii’s high housing cost.
Our company has been building ohana-style homes since 1990 and was the first on Oahu to have a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS). CAPS is a certification awarded to experts in home mobility and safety of elderly. As an experienced forerunner in multi-generational and aging-in-place home design, Graham Builders is the top choice among Hawaii’s families.
Holds a Better Business Bureau ethics award
Finally, our clients feel safe knowing that Graham Builders is the winner of the Better Business Bureau of Hawaii’s Torch Award for ethics. It is the first and only builder to win this prestigious award for trustworthiness. The company has also been honored with Pacific Business News’ Business Leadership Award and with the Public Relations Society of America’s Best in Show for their work in educating Hawaii about multi-generational home options.
