Crawford Builders

History

Mac Crawford established Crawford Builders in 1972. In the ensuing 36 years the company has earned a reputation as one the Bluegrass region's elite custom homebuilders and remodeling specialty companies.

The company's culture and values reflect those of its founder. Mac was raised on a Kentucky farm, a place where hard work is not an option - it is a way of life. Other life lessons learned there were that if something is worth doing, it is worth doing right; also, treat people like you want to be treated. Soft spoken and unpretentious, Mac understands the importance of communication and that listening is every bit as important as talking. All of that describes Mac - and it describes Crawford Builders.

During its first years of operation, the core values of quality work and superior client relations set the course for success. In those early years, while Crawford Builders built great homes, a strong and respected company was also being built - one in which clients and suppliers alike could have full confidence.

In the 1980's, the company expanded from its core business, continuing to build elegant custom homes, but also undertaking major remodeling projects, along with offering home maintenance and repair services. This holistic business model provides Crawford Builders with expertise and resources often non-existent in other companies that focus on just one aspect of home construction.

The eighties also marked the emergence of Crawford Builder's penchant for being on the cutting edge of construction technology and techniques. The company was selected by Owings Corning to build the first super insulated, home in central Kentucky. That home was designated in 1984 by the Lexington Homebuilders Association as its Outstanding Single Family Project, the first in a long list of awards Crawford Builders has earned over the years.

In the 1990's, Crawford Builders continued to evolve, adding to the family aspect of the business when Mac's son Chip joined the company, working along side Mac and his mom, Terri, who serves as the company's finance manager and design consultant utilizing her degree in interior design. Chip now manages the company's remodeling business while Mac oversees new construction.

Beginning also in the nineties and continuing today is Crawford Builders close affiliations with the Lexington Home Builders Association of Lexington, the Home Builders Association of Kentucky and the National Home Builders Association. That involvement provides Mac, Chip and the company a means of giving back to their industry and community, while also staying fully abreast of the latest trends and best practices in home construction and remodeling.
