The fireplace and hearth are the focus of any house and room. The word "focus", it turns out, is Latin for fireplace. Period buildings are designed from the fireplace out, and that is often where our clients ask us to begin. Mantels, panelling, and built in cabinetry all key off the fireplace and hearth. Let us restore or recreate the tradition of the "fire place" in your home. Traditional Builders, Inc. uses antique moulding and hand planes to bring an authentic, hand-crafted finish to our work, both newly milled or carefully restored. Clients have come to trust us with the architectural details that express a building's character.

Traditional Builders, Inc. offers full general contracting services to owners and architects who share our commitment to this rich architectural heritage. Working in Maryland and the Washington, DC area exclusively, we help clients to preserve the distinctive historic buildings of the region, and to produce new buildings that faithfully continue this architectural tradition. We look forward to talking to you about your panelling, wainscoating, mantel or fireplace surround project.

Clients appreciate the close personal attention we give to every project. Our company is fully licensed, bonded, and insured, and can administer all permitting and Historic District Commission review issues. Contact us by  email or call our office at  (410) 991-1834, or fax us at  (410) 263-5586.
