We stand by our work and are proud of the reputation we’ve built for high-quality custom home construction.

TejMar Builders provides design-and-build services for custom homes across the Triad region of North Carolina, including Guilford, Forsyth, Alamance and Rockingham counties. Our founders, Karen and Gustavo, grew up in the Triad and it’s where they chose to raise their family.

When you contract with TejMar Builders to build a custom home, we’ll work closely with you and your mortgage lender, real estate agent, designers, and others involved in the process. We apply our passion and knowledge to help you create your dream home.
