We took on an enormous project with renovating our 1981 home in 2019, and Grau Building was more than up for the task. Not only did the original plan involve taking down walls, moving other ones, building a new roof for the breakfast nook, a complete kitchen and master bath overhaul, and new flooring everywhere, but yeah, then we added more! The remarkable thing, in spite of the extras, they finished within 3 weeks of the ORIGINAL scheduled completion (for a project that took 6 months in total) and a month ahead of the revised date! The result is gorgeous and of the highest quality.

Jeff and our project manager, Danielle, were 100% committed to our vision for our new home, and also offered valuable feedback throughout to help us edit and spend wisely. We chose to work with Grau for their portfolio and transparency in a user-friendly online portal (which was an absolute must for us, as we were still living out of state when the project began). We soon discovered their reputation was well-deserved; the Grau team is knowledgeable, professional, accessible and really fun to work with. Their chosen vendors and contractors are also highly skilled and friendly, and all stand by their work. We have now been in the house for over a year and have had minor things come up, but Jeff and the extended team have always answered our calls quickly – when the weather changes caused our new front door to swell, Dave (Grau’s go-to-guy for finishes and quality control), came by and fixed it at no cost to us. Overall, we have loved living in our home (and you know we have spent a lot of time in it this past pandemic year) and are so thankful to the Grau team for the amazing transformation. We not only recommend Grau Building to our closest friends and neighbors, but also plan to work with them again when we take on rebuilding our deck and screened-in porch – project next!

We used Grau Building Company to renovate our entire house.  Jeff and his team did a fantastic job!  They are professional, adaptable and great to work with.  As far as workmanship, they just cannot be beat, and we would recommend them over any other contractor in the Triangle area.

Mr. and Mrs. Alexander

We could not have been more pleased with the results of our project and the entire Grau team.  Everyone was not only attentive to every detail but also a pleasure to spend time with.  They were totally intent on making our home an extraordinary success.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Grau couldn’t have been more pleasant to work with.  Their quality of work is evident every step of the way.  They are professional, organized and stay on budget.  We can not recommend them enough.

Mr. and Mrs. Freedman

We cannot begin to say enough great things about our experience with Jeff Grau and Grau Building Company. Having heavily renovated three homes and built another from the ground up, we consider ourselves relatively sophisticated consumers when it comes to home construction. We are pleased to share that Jeff exceeded our expectations at every turn.

Mr. and Mrs. Waters

We were presented with the itemized costs before the project started so we were well informed and there were no surprises.

Mr. and Mrs. Huang

Thank you for making our [kitchen and bath] renovations so easy. You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and we look forward to Part II, Part III, etc.

Dr. and Mrs. Ginsberg

Mr. and Mrs. Vilen

Mr. and Mrs. Vilen

Words can’t adequately capture the superb quality of our finished home nor the exceptional experience of working with Jeff Grau.

Mr. and Mrs. Edmonds

Jeff Grau was a pleasure to work with. He listened carefully to what I wanted to do with the complete renovation of a newly purchased older home. He provided excellent guidance on quality, pricing, timing of each part of the project and stuck to the schedule and budget.

Ms. Wald

I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Grau and Grau Building Company on numerous projects, where I was the residential designer and he was the general contractor. I have always found him to be very easy to work with, wonderful with the clients, excellent to communicate with and provide an exceptional home.

Mr. Johnson

I have little doubt that an absentee sale could have been problematic. You facilitated everything and I don’t think things could have gone more smoothly. I appreciate your attention to detail and keeping me posted each step of the way.

Ms. Fedkiw
We had a wonderful experience with the Grau Building team! Jeff Grau and his colleagues are educated professionals who speak our language.Our project was a true partnership thanks to the proactivity and responsiveness of Jeff and his associates.
Mr. and Mrs. Scales

We were senior citizen hurricane Katrina victims when we first met Jeff Grau. Were he a different type person, he could have taken advantage of our vulnerability, like so many are doing to the people of the Mississippi coast and New Orleans, but instead he was understanding, kind, patient and above all, honest! His integrity is so much above the average business person. He built us a beautiful home within our budget, mostly via phone and internet, that we are proud of and are enjoying tremendously. He continues to be there for us when we need him. He has our highest recommendation. Thank you Jeff, for being such a huge part of our getting our lives back together again.

Mr. and Mrs. Sampson

The home building process was a very positive experience with Jeff. From the onset he carefully listened to our ideas and requests and was more than willing to work with us on all of them. Any concerns or issues that we had were responded to in a timely manner and we are more than satisfied with the finished product. We get many compliments on our home but more importantly enjoy it immensely and feel we have a well built house.
