Guy Lowry, the owner and President of Lowry Building Corp (LBC) started in the residential construction business in high school working summer jobs for local carpenters and roofers and even one summer for a commercial construction firm building Chesterfield Town Center. In 1980, after college, Guy went to work for his father at R. A. Lowry Constr. Co. In 1989 he started G. R. Lowry, Inc. and in 2003 founded Lowry Building Corp.
Through the years the he has remained a small business, by design, so he could work directly with his customers. This way you are working with the owner throughout the process – one that has a vested interest in the success of your home – rather than with an employee working for a paycheck!
LBC is very insistent upon quality throughout the homes they build. They still do things that a lot of builders quit doing long ago, i.e. cast iron plumbing stacks and sound proof insulation for the first floor half baths yet when the right product or program comes along they lead the way. Several examples of that are they built the first Energy Star home and the the first unvented crawl space in the Richmond area, they also built the first home south of the James River using Hardiplank siding. So, whether it’s the quality your parents insisted upon or the new innovations you desire you get it all with Lowry Building Corp.
While not original, Guy, has always lived by the saying “I would rather justify my price than apologize for it’s quality.”
