Turning your vision into a meticulously crafted home of your dreams is the foundation of Roland Builder, Inc.

Forty years ago W. Lee Roland started this company and built it on Christian values with his wife Rosalie. As they walked in faith focusing on creativity, exceptional quality, and craftsmanship, demand for their services grew from small remodeling projects to unique, high-end homes. Their dedication to each project earned them a reputation for integrity, dependability and excellent customer service.
As the new President of Roland Builder, their son Brent values that reputation and carries his parents’ vision forward. He grew up in the business and now leads a highly qualified team of professionals who share his passion for exceeding your expectations with innovative design, exceptional quality, and a superior home building experience. Roland Builder’s continued customer service guarantees your satisfaction long after construction is complete and assures lasting value for your home.

The Roland Builder team earns numerous awards and recognitions each year, but what they truly value is using their God given talents to design and build homes that their clients fully enjoy and are proud to own.
