Old-Fashioned Builder

Greg Testerman, founder and owner of New River Custom Builders, is an Old Fashioned Builder. What does that mean for YOU? It means that rather than being a project manager who automatically hires the cheapest available subcontractors (here today, gone tomorrow) to build a "supposed" custom home, Greg employs a crew of local craftsmen that have worked for him for many years.

Projects of All Sizes

New River Custom Builders is ready for projects of all sizes. We have experience building large homes, cozy mountain cabins, and everything in between. No matter the scale of your home project, New River Custom Builders will exceed your expectations.


Besides providing a home with more living space, home additions can be a terrific investment. New River Custom Builders is an experienced full service remodeling, repair and renovation contractor that you can trust. We take on larger jobs and we do smaller projects and have built a solid reputation for outstanding attention to detail in both commercial and residential renovations and additions.
