Building innovations at every step

At TRU-Building, we are partners in bringing the creative vision of your new home to life.

We consult with you while designs are still on paper, choosing the best strategies and supplies for your build so we’re handing you the keys on time and within budget. You deserve to be involved in the progress of your project just as much as the planning. We provide a web-based software portal called BuilderTrend that allows you to view schedules, make selections, send messages and see an up-to-the-minute budget for your project.

Every cutting edge material and technology we use is about building for performance. From the moisture barrier under the foundation and the insulation in the walls, to the spacing of the trusses and the angle of the roof panels, we meticulously engineer every detail to integrate beauty and efficiency. We strive to offer you a better living experience, delivering proven value and quality of life.

A TRU-Building home will save you money in the years to come by using the best materials today. When you’re ready to break ground on the home of your dreams, we’re ready to help you build smarter and live better.
