“Green Building” is a relatively new term, but The Grout Company has been involved in recycling and utilized green building techniques throughout our 33 plus year history. Four years ago, we decided that all new houses built by The Grout Company would be constructed to Earth Advantage standards which include increased insulation levels, material recycling, energy efficient windows & doors, high efficiency heating & ventilation systems, advanced sealing & moisture abatement techniques, recycling of materials, low voc paints & finishes, energy efficient lighting & appliances, and utilizing low impact materials. Significant effort is continuously made to utilize the most energy efficient and sustainable products and techniques in all of our construction projects.
The company is a full service general contractor specializing in both new construction and remodeling. Randy Grout, with a combined degree in architecture and business from the University of Oregon, is the owner and manages all aspects of the company. With offices in both Portland and Bend, The Grout Company has been in business for over 33 years. Randy recently obtained the Sustainable Homes Professional designation, a rigorous and demanding six month course offered through Earth Advantage, concentrating on sustainable building practices and high performance systems.
The Grout Company’s roots stem from a long history of working in Northwest Portland’s restoration and revitalization programs. The company was very active in a majority of the restoration and development along Portland’s upscale N.W. 21st and N.W. 23rd Avenues and the Uptown area executed during the late 70’s and early 80’s. Having moved back to Bend in 2001, Randy has completed a number of unique residential and commercial projects in Northwest Crossing and the surrounding area.
Customer service, quality, integrity and attention to detail are cornerstones of our company philosophy. In addition, making the construction process enjoyable and a learning experience for everyone involved is vital to the success of a project.
We have our own home designs which can be modified to satisfy your needs or we can work with your own architect or designer. We can also recommend a small number of architects and designers with whom we work on a regular basis to provide you with a winning design.
