History & The Team
T&G Builders has been a premier beachfront custom home builder and home improvement contractor for over 25 years. We are known for our uncompromising commitment to quality, our passion for using innovative technology and premium materials to complete projects, and our exceptional attention to detail.
Since our inception, T&G Builders has completed over 500 projects, and we have continued to grow along with Worcester and Sussex Counties to provide residents with gorgeous coastal homes they love to spend time in with family and friends.
We work with our customers through every step of the building process starting with an in-house design service. Your entire construction process will benefit from the streamlined and seamless communication that comes from having everyone involved in your project on the same page. Any changes or alterations will be quickly and effectively communicated to all stakeholders.
Truly, a custom builder we provide our customers with conventionally framed roofing systems and engineered floor joists. This allows us to provide you with a phenomenal, long-lasting finished product that will hold up to the harsh environment of coastal Delmarva. This building method allows for changes to be made easily and found opportunities for additional space and alternate design features.
At T&G Builders, our staff makes all the difference. They are all experienced, professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to serving each of our customers with the right remodeling or new construction solution.
