Get the Facts Before Starting a Home Construction Project

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

For most homeowners, building a new house or taking on major renovations on an existing home can be daunting. Many find themselves asking questions such as how much will it cost? What design will best accommodate my family’s needs? And most importantly, which company can I trust to walk me through the entire process from start to finish?

Fortunately for homeowners, Graham Builders, Hawaii’s premier design+build company, can provide those answers. With more than 20 years of experience, the locally owned company has helped families bring their dream homes to reality. Here’s what two recent clients have to say about their experience with Graham Builders:

We wanted to build out from our current house, but had no clue how to do it. We ended up going to Graham Builder’s free informational seminar where they walked us through the whole process. The presentation was very professional and very easy to understand. The best part? We never felt any sales pressure.

— Eric I., Hawaii Kai

Another customer noted:

After checking out a number of design+build contractors, I decided to go with Graham Builders after attending one of their great informational seminars, and I’m glad I did! They were professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with, had great design ideas, addressed all of my concerns and built a house for me that I am proud of and get many compliments on.

— Diane I., Moiliili

Since 1995, Graham Builders has educated more than 5,000 homeowners on the step-by-step process of homebuilding and renovation through its monthly “Building Your Home for Life” seminar. A leader in the industry, Graham Builders was the first design and construction firm in the state to offer free educational seminars to the public.

“Our ultimate goal with the seminars is to inform and educate homeowners of what is involved with new builds and remodeling projects and why they should choose professionals with a proven track record,” said Evan Fujimoto, Graham Builders president. “We’ve accomplished that goal if homeowners leave feeling empowered with knowledge to make informed decisions about their home projects.”
