Homeowner Education

You create the home. We'll handle the small details.


Simplifying all aspects of the residential construction process, without all the unnecessary jargon.

Are you a homeowner looking to remodel your home, add on to your home, build your custom dream home, or just want to learn more about the construction process? Well we're here to help.


The goal of the TEKRA Homeowner Education Series is to simplify the construction process so you can feel more confident and comfortable during your next project. The ability to make educated and informed decisions starts with understanding the basics.

The series consists of short, informative, 1-3 minute video clips as well as expanded blog posts documenting different aspects of the construction process and detailing all that goes into creating a beautiful final product.

We understand that the building and remodeling process can be overwhelming so we try to cover a wide range of topics to help you along your journey. We encourage you to use it as a resource to learn about different materials and processes, as well as some of the things to expect when hiring a contractor.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram (@tekra_builders) or Facebook (facebook.com/tekrabuilders) so you don’t miss a beat and catch some behind the scenes action of our projects! Feel free to reach out with any feedback or topics you’d like to see covered.
