About Christian Builders & Remodelers
Locally owned and operated since 1974, our philosophy at Christian Builders & Remodeling revolves around creating efficient and healthy living environments for our clients. Our company is a recognized leader both locally and nationally for energy efficient custom home building. Each member of our team is committed to the spirit of continuous improvement, both in the homes we produce and the methods we use to achieve the final product.
Rethinking the Process
We are currently building and designing custom homes within neighborhoods in Rogers, Otsego, Elk River, MN. From our beginning, we have served clients across the greater Twin Cities region. Our company has achieved business strength and economic well being through a dedication to innovative design, quality material usage, and an ability to deliver a better product. This commitment to “rethinking the process” has brought us to one clear conclusion: Energy conservation and indoor air quality are critical components in attaining the end-product our clients want.
Building Homes Customized to Our Client’s Needs
“A house is not a home until a family moves in and “test-drives” the product,” explains the president of Christian Builders. “The results [through independent third-party testing] indicate our homes have a diminished energy appetite and a healthier environment for the family to live within. Our after-sale service problems and related costs have been noticeably reduced. Client health and happiness go hand-in-hand with the health and happiness of our own business.”
Through careful product selection, customized home design and an eye on construction detail, Christian Builders has lessened the environmental impact, decreased our clients’ utility consumption, and given our clients and company a bright future.
Christian Builders is proud to be a Green Path Partner and to construct homes with a high HERS Certification.
