3rd Generation


Grenz Homes a 3rd generation home building & construction company working in the greater Sacramento area.

Started by Raymond M. Grenz in 1968 & Incorporated in 1975, Grenz Homes Inc. was formerly known as Ray Grenz Construction Co., Inc.  

Following a stint in the U.S. Air Force, Ray came home on a Friday, had Saturday off, was given plans on Sunday and told to meet the masonry contractor on Monday....thus a home building career starts!! 

Although Ray grew up in the home building business, Ray officially went into business with his father Emil and his brother Aaron when he got home from the Air Force in 1953.  The name of the business was Emil Grenz & Sons, General Contractors & Builders.  They had a large yard on 24th St., close to Sac City College backing up to the train tracks. 

In 1990, Chris moved back to the Sacramento area and helped run the construction crews.  In 1996, Ray retired and Chris became President of Ray Grenz Construction Co., Inc. In 1998, the name was changed to Grenz Homes Inc.

Grenz Homes Inc. has built 100's of homes throughout the Sacramento region.  Areas including Yolo, Placer El Dorado and Sacramento Counties.   In the last two decades, we have built  homes in the Pocket area, Davis, Roseville, Rocklin,  El Dorado Hills, Folsom , Granite Bay, Loomis,  Carmichael, Wilhaggin, Fair Oaks and Orangevale areas .  We have built several homes for 2nd time customers too.  We have also been asked to build homes in the bay area twice for two different 2nd time customers.  Along with referrals, we feel that is the highest of compliments.

Recently, Jeff and Chris have teamed back up combining for over 50 years experience and a countless number of custom homes built between them.

​The Grenz name has stood for quality work for a fair price for over 9 decades in the Sacramento region.  A tenure in Sacramento that is very hard to match!  Very few companies, let alone construction companies, can make that sort of claim.  

Give us a call and see what Grenz Homes Inc. can build for you and your family.
