Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Grand Rapids
Kenowa Builders
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"I hired Kenowa Builders for a complete remodel of our family home. Dealing with the entire Kenowa team was great. At the beginning of the project we sat down and reviewed the entire scope of the project and the needs of our family. They took everything we discussed, put it into a plan with a time line. Through out the course of the remodel they were always there, responding to my phone calls, answering my questions and giving me updates as to the progress. They were also very receptive to last minute changes we would make in the plan. They listened to our needs, wants and desires and then made it happen. I could not be happier with the end results. With the vision they brought, they took our old home and made it a contemporary show place."
- Dan Longberg
New Urban Home Builders
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"New Urban Home Builders was hired as the general contractor for renovations in our condo. The scope of work included a bathroom remodel, kitchen update, new wood flooring, painting of the interior, construction of a new closet as well as electrical and plumbing work. In addition, we had the terrace enclosed for pet and child safety. All of the work was done to perfection with careful attention to detail. After completion, there were a couple of minor fixes that were taken care of immediately. All in all, the experience was wonderful and I would readily recommend them to anyone."

North Cove Builders
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"We hired North Cove Homes to finish our basement and do a barn wood accent wall in our living room. Neal is fair and very straight forward. His crew works fast and was very respectful of our home. We were very pleased with the work they did and would definitely hire them again for future projects."

Whitmore Homes LLC
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"My Husband and I purchased a 5 bed, 2.5 bath spec home from Whitmore Builders in 2015. We were delighted to hear the home would be featured in the spring Parade of Homes - and it did not disappoint, winning "Best Interior". We've been so delighted with our home and the responsiveness of the Whitmore team with any questions we've had. We love all the detail and the effort and energy you know went into it. Working with Whitmore Builders has been an incredibly positive experience!"

Hawks Hollow Builders
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"I worked for Hawks Hollow Builders, and from the viewpoint of quality building, I can give them a very high recommendation. The guys I worked with were experienced professionals, who each took pride in a job done to the best of their abilities. Of course, many builders take pride in the detailing of a job - custom case work, or in building an oversized cedar timber porch, but at HHB, the guys frame a job in the best way they know how, never rushing through a project at the cost of thorough quality. These are the kind of guys who recognize that you might have to cut something more than once for it to fit right and look best. The owners were on site often, reviewing what had been done with our boss (both our foreman and the owner of the company). In other words, they were very involved, and it was welcomed. They also were able to envision better what had been described on paper. They also have a woodshop, run by one guy who's been there for many years. His skill for woodworking is incredible, and the doors and cabinets he builds are beautiful. If you are looking for creative minds, capable hands, and honest builders, I can recommend Hawks Hollow Builders."

Engelsma Homes LLC
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"The Engelsma team is the best in class when it comes to their people, quality, and the experience of building a new home. We used Houzz to help provide the vision of what we were looking for in our new home and they made it come to life. Our rustic modern mountain retreat is something quite amazing. Building a custom home can be a daunting task, but their design team made everything seem effortless. From the Floorplans to fixtures and the smallest details, the craftsmanship is amazing. Their woodworking team built all the custom alder cabinets and their carpenters created a work of art. I had the opportunity to visit the project every day and interact with all the folks on their team and all the subcontractors. Every one that worked for or with Engelsma were wonderful to get to know. As we sit in our living room and go into thought, I look around at the work of art that their team created, amazed at every detail that we had the honor to be apart of. We had the pleasure of moving in a couple months ago and as I walk through our home, I see the faces of everyone that put their mark on every little thing that went into it. The craftsmanship and detail is unbelievable and we feel so blessed that words cannot express how thankful we are for you, Jason, Kevin, Ryan, Mel, Corinne Allison & Jaclyn, Melissa (for dealing with “Bob the Builder next door), Casey, Nick, Darryl, Sammy, Rob, Tyler, Glen & Kurt, Tommy, Herman, the painting team lead by Joe Corey Kayla Erica Will Phil, Brian Brandon and the team, Dave on the deck, Dan Mike & Jeff on the drywall, Don Allen Jeramy Mike Tommy and the team on the masonry, Jim & Nate on the concrete, Mark Ryan and the siding team, Pat and the team on flooring, Don and his sons on the tilework, Crazy Carl and team on the plumbing, Steve, Eric and team on the electrical, Jason’s mom Nancy and the cleaning team, Kerry Dan and the team at Standale, DeeDee on the blinds, the Belden team, and everyone else that played a role in making our dream come true. I may have missed a couple people, but I see them all in every part of our home and will continue to be thankful for the thought that was put into every part that went into the house that is now our home. God has truly blessed us with allowing us to work with their entire team. Again, words can’t express how thankful we are to work with such wonderful people."

Snowden Builders LLC
Home Builders in Grand Rapids
"We hired Snowden Builder's to replace our deck with a 4 season porch, after meeting with several other companies and contractors. Bob didn't try and force his solution to fit our needs as most of the other contractors. He listened to what we wanted and came up with a solution that was perfect for us at a reasonable price."

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Grand Rapids market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Grand Rapids has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Grand Rapids also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Grand Rapids:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
