A Blueprint For America

American Grade was created when our founders' local homebuilding business built a Made in America house. They successfully converted $300K of imported products to American products and built a home using over 90% American products. However, the process to find the American products they sought was very difficult and there was no method to quantify what an American home truly is. This inspired them to create an easier way for others to include more American building products into their projects.

American Grade evolved as the source to find American products and services and the American Grade Homes and Buildings programs were developed to quantify and certify projects using American products found in the search engine.
