Quality, Craftsmanship & Experience


John Gudaitis began his career building premium homes in 1985 as an apprentice working with master builders on Cape Cod. During this time he learned the art and craftsmanship of custom home building and the value of superior workmanship, integrity and communication. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts, he moved to Atlanta to start his own construction company specializing in custom home building and complete home remodeling. For over 20 years, Riverfront Builders' emphasis on quality, craftsmanship and innovative home design has produced many satisfied customers, and established our reputation for excellence. The company's explosive growth has come largely from word-of-mouth referrals and repeat clients due to our excellent customer satisfaction. We have completed many luxury homes and renovation projects, including custom work on a celebrity luxury home in New Bern and several beachfront estates.

We are more than just another builder, we are carpenters and craftsman. We have produced hand-crafted kitchen cabinets, built-in bookcase units, architectural columns and beams, and custom arched mahogany doors for our clients. We use proven traditional techniques that have been performed by craftsman for generations, but have been long ago abandoned for easier and cheaper methods. We believe the traditional carpentry methods produce a better quality product, and are worth the additional effort. We are not just building homes, we are building relationships. This is more than just a Mission Statement, it is something we firmly believe and work hard to achieve everyday. When you choose us to build your next home or office, you can be assured that we will build it to your specifications, on-time and on budget. We realize we are not just working on another project - we are helping to make someone's dream come true!
