Founded in the spring of 1990, McGrath Construction LLC is entering its third decade devoted to high quality, sustainable, true custom residential building in the Charlottesville area. While the majority of our work over the past 20 years has involved additions and remodeling of existing space, our projects have also included large upscale homes and other freestanding buildings. Since the outset our goal has been to build with the highest quality and most sensible materials allowed by budget and to do so with superior craftsmanship.

Always, our projects have been carried out with close attention to detail and in close consultation with the client which is at the heart of our mission. Our building creations have grown from a mix of architect’s, homeowner’s and our own imaginations and even hybrids of the above. While we don’t encourage midstream changes, designs have been known to evolve through the construction stage. This is custom.

Additionally, our staff has received training in green building procedures and materials through EarthCraft Virginia.

While we whole-heartedly agree with Mr. Emerson’s commentary on homeownership we humbly submit we can lessen that “task for life.”

Located in White Hall in Albemarle County, McGrath Construction is a Class A general contractor and hands-on company offering design and build services for the following:

  1. Additions

  2. Kitchens

  3. Baths

  4. Bedrooms

  5. Basements

  6. Wine cellars

  7. Outbuildings

Additionally, we can site and build whole houses from plans     provided by clients.
