T. R. Builder, Inc. is a Class A Contractor and Home Building & Remodeling Company that has been transforming homes across the Virginia Peninsula for over twenty years. Originally called T.R. Construction, Inc., T.R. Builder, Inc. is one of the few female-owned construction companies in the area. Missie Reed, President and Owner of T.R. Builder, is known for her attention to the finer details of each project, no matter the size and scope. From the smaller and simpler bathroom jobs to the new Custom Homes we build, each project is equally important and gets the same attention to detail.


Customer satisfaction (see Testimonials) attention to quality and teamwork provide a strong foundation for a successful business. A home is not built by the builder alone. It is the positive relationship between all involved in the project: the Homeowner, our T.R. Builder Team, our Subcontractors and our Vendors. All of those team players are who work together to make the project complete. Our personal approach to home building and remodeling focuses on consistent communication and teamwork among everyone involved. With this approach you will find that the actual “under construction” part of your project will be enjoyable. From concept on paper to completion and closing, our team will be in continuous contact with you. We can have meetings on site or in our office to discuss the progress and answer any questions you may have. We encourage your input during construction because open communication is a critical aspect to a successful project.
