Algra Bros. began when three brothers combined their skills and talents in a new vision of homebuilding for the Fraser Valley. Our reputation for excellence in home construction continues to grow with each new development and stunning private home project. Today, Algra Bros. is also a major player in area commercial development.

In residential construction, we strive to build sustainable homes and walkable communities. We bring this same commitment to commercial work, focusing on walkable and vibrant urban communities that connect business, entertainment and living. With the eye of a craftsman and the principles of new urbanism, we are building a better, more connected way of living.
