Designing luxurious custom homes in Raleigh-Durham, Upright Builders excels in quality, integrity, and craftsmanship since 1987.

Upright Builders, Inc. has been exceeding homeowner expectations and building stunning luxury custom homes in Wake Forest and surrounding areas for over 30 years.

Founded by Wes Carroll in 1987, Upright aims to construct homes of impeccable quality with a focus on customer service.

Local, Family-Owned Business

As a locally owned company led by North Carolina native Wes Carroll, Upright Builders takes pride in serving Wake Forest home buyers.

Wes and his team are actively involved in the community through organizations like Habitat for Humanity and the Wake County Home Builders Association.

Reputation for Quality Craftsmanship

With over three decades of experience, Upright Builders has established itself as one of Wake Forest’s premier custom home builders. Their reputation for outstanding design, construction quality, and customer satisfaction is unmatched.

Homeowners rave about Upright’s constant communication, transparency, and focus on collaboration throughout the design and building process. Many describe working with Upright as “seamless.”

Home Styles and Customization

Upright Builders specializes in luxury Traditional, Craftsman, and Transitional style homes. Sizes typically range from 3,000 square feet up to 10,000+ for larger estate homes.

Every Upright home is completely customized to the client’s lifestyle and aesthetic vision. Their in-house design team works one-on-one with each homeowner to create a unique living space.

Upright’s sophisticated Design Studio provides endless options to personalize each home through finishes, fixtures, and high-end smart home technology.

Construction Process

Upright Builders self-performs much of the construction using their own team of trade partners perfected over decades. Homeowners can expect excellent communication and transparency throughout the 8-12 month build.

The company is known for exceeding code standards when it comes to durability, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality. This results in low utility bills and comfortable, healthy homes.

Upright conducts thorough inspections and walkthroughs at each stage of construction to ensure flawless results matching the homeowner's expectations.

Buying an Upright Home

Upright constructs luxury custom homes in Wake Forest’s most prestigious communities including Waterstone Reserve, Heritage North, and more.

Pricing typically ranges from $900,000 up to over $2 million for larger estate homes. Exact cost depends on size, features, finishes, and location.

Upright Builders has relationships with over 20 preferred lenders to help buyers finance their dream home. They also offer guidance on budgeting and managing cost.

The builder's website showcases photos and videos of past projects to provide design inspiration.

Guidance from Local Real Estate Expert

As an agent who has sold several Upright homes, I highly recommend them for luxury custom builds. Here are my insider tips:

Take time to understand their proven construction methods and premium materials - quality is their focus.

Invest heavily in the design process - Upright will incorporate special touches that make your home unique.

Consider long-term resale value when selecting finishes and materials. Smart upgrades will preserve value.

Inquire about their smart home tech integration - this is an area where Upright excels.

Ask about energy efficiency and indoor air quality features that improve home health.

Use any leverage you have as a buyer, especially on spec homes or lots they've held for over 6 months.

With over 30 years perfecting their craft, you can trust Upright Builders to deliver a finely-crafted living space that flawlessly blends aesthetics, functionality, and cutting-edge technology.
