Who We Are & What we Do

Summit Oak Builders is a premier custom home builder crafting homes in New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, and the surrounding hill country of South Central Texas including Comal, Blanco, Hays, and Guadalupe counties.

Locally owned and managed by Greg Griffin, Summit Oak Builders will ensure every detail, decorative touch, and modern amenity in your new custom home is suited for your family’s discerning tastes. Most importantly, our dedication to artistry and quality in residential design and construction is matched only by our commitment to exceptional service before, during, and post-construction.

Although Greg is personally involved in every project from the early stages of design through the final finishing touches at completion, he knows what truly makes Summit Oak Builders special, and sets us apart, is the Summit Oak Team and the skilled craftsmen that work on every project.

Greg has spent the past 20 years developing relationships with quality subcontractors and only involves those tradesmen who show their commitment to excellence in the work they perform. Our Team and our Trades are what make the difference and that is why a Summit Oak home is a special place to call home.

If you can envision it, we can build it. Summit Oak Builders takes pride in creating beautiful, functional spaces for our clients. Whether you are taking advantage of a breathtaking view, nestling your home in a natural environment that offers seclusion and solitude, or have a desire to be close to town in the thick of the action, we can build a home that fits you perfectly. Growing Families, Multigenerational Design, or Empty Nester Layouts? Yes, we do it all!

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Before contacting Summit Oak (SO) in March 2021, we had already interviewed about a dozen builders who currently build custom homes in Vintage Oaks. Our first contact was with Erica (sales/design) and in that initial meeting, we laid out our budget and expressed that this was a firm number. At this point, the pandemic was in full force and construction material prices, especially lumber, were rising rapidly. SO helped us stick to our budget and never so much as suggested that we might want to spend more than we were comfortable with spending. In the end, our final price was less than one percent above our targeted budget. We are thankful for that. 

In that initial meeting with Erica, we gave her floor plan ideas we were interested in and went about marking up one of their “conversation starter” floor plans. Greg (owner) did a great job of incorporating our ideas into the plan. One thing Greg and Erica did for us, and for which we are thankful, they asked questions to make sure we understood the implications of what we were asking them to put into the plan. With the plan completed and the contract signed, we began the selection process. In our opinion, this is where Erica really shines. We believe she has a really good eye for pulling together all the elements (colors, textures, etc…) of your custom home. We are very pleased with all our selections which wouldn’t have been possible without a lot of hand-holding on Erica’s part. After the selection process was complete, we were handed over to Clay (construction manager). We found Clay to be easy to work with and he was always attentive and responsive to our concerns. He kept our job on track and got us to the finish line. Additionally, Clay was very good about keeping our worksite, both inside and outside, as clean as possible. If you walk through other builders’ home sites, you will find this is not always the case. This was our first custom home and to say there are a lot of questions to be answered would be an understatement. While the process was not always “unicorns and rainbows”, each challenge we faced was handled collaboratively with SO and resolved to our satisfaction. SOH never assumed they knew what we would want. 

We are very pleased with our new home and with the relationships, we developed with the employees at SO.

“After evaluating an array of builders, we were convinced Summit Oak Homes would serve us well. Giving Greg and Erica our ideas, they would masterly craft each design concept to satisfaction. Oversight during construction was second to none. Any concerns during the building process were addressed immediately. After living here for over a year, if we have any questions Summit Oak is just a phone call away in full support. Since receiving the keys we continue to appreciate the diligence and artistry that went into creating the beautiful quality house we call HOME. Thank you Summit Oak Homes!”
