Terra, Latin for earth, and Revo for renovation, the people behind TerraRevo Builders have been renovating and building custom homes in California for over 35 years. Our claim to fame is transforming old tired homes into open concept plans that meet the needs of today’s modern families, and that can be appreciated for decades to come. The projects we take on tend to appreciate rapidly where the market value of improvements made more than covers the cost of construction.
We help our clients figure out where to spend their money and where to cut back to keep construction projects within reach. Clients take advantage of our volume pricing arrangements and control the cost of construction by paying for fixtures and finishes directly. Alternatively, if a construction loan requires it, we can create a fixed cost budget for any project.
