About Petrine Construction

Our StoryMeet the Team

Since 1985, Petrine Construction has been designing and building one of a kind homes and Commercial Buildings throughout the Northern Shenandoah Valley area.

Like many construction companies, Petrine began as a few young men, hammers in hand, with the energy and the desire to build something great.

Build they did, and 30 years on, Petrine has grown into one of the most reliable and trusted local builders in the Northern Shenandoah Valley.

In everything we build at Petrine Construction, it is our goal to integrate efficiency, beauty and practicality into our design and honesty, integrity and reliability into our business practices.

Homebuilding is our specialty.

We provide a range of products, from pre-planned homes, to fully customized plans and designs tailored to your ideas.

We provide a range of product offerings from starter homes to fully customized plans that are tailored to your ideas and dreams. We can collaborate with you on all of your different ideas; shaping your home with as little as a collage of pictures, or even so much as a pencil sketch on scrap paper.

Not sure where to start? Petrine has a large portfolio of home plans already in their system that will help you find and build the home that fits your needs. If you don’t find one on our website, make an appointment today to discuss your options.

Competent, Commercial Construction

We have built everything from churches to gymnasiums to corporate headquarters. We are an authorized Star Pre-Engineered Buildings Dealer.

Ideal Location

The quality of their work was superior, they responded to all our questions and concerns throughout the process, and we were able to work through weather-related set-backs and budget updates.
