When it comes to your estate, you want something that makes a grand statement. It should also be built to last. For many homeowners, a concrete home fits both criteria. Concrete has a sleek reputation. However, there is no need for modern building materials to feel cold, stark, or uninviting.

Your property is your oasis, whether to entertain or recharge after a long day. With Dernehl as your builder, your concrete home will not only look impressive but will also feel stylish and inviting. It’s no small feat, but we have been known to win awards for making it happen.

In Atlanta, it’s all about setting the stage for your life. With a stunning concrete home as your backdrop, everything else in your world will fall into place. For homeowners that are not willing to compromise on their vision, turn to our award-winning concrete builders at Dernehl in Atlanta.
Our high-end concrete homes are statement makers. A concrete house is built with concrete as the main structural element, specifically with concrete-bearing walls, rather than wood. Even the floor and roof of a concrete house can be made of concrete. Concrete is incredibly durable and can be customized to look exactly the way you want. We offer five types of concrete building systems for you to choose from:
Rectangular blocks are the most widely used concrete building material. Modern concrete blocks offer improved insulation than those of the past. The insulting barrier raises the R-value by decreasing air leakage, making it ideal for your high-efficiency home. Concrete blocks offer great wind and water resistance during storms, flash floods, and tornadoes as well. A versatile design element, concrete blocks can conform to virtually any design plan you can imagine.
INSULATING CONCRETE FORMS (ICFs)
One of our specialties at Dernehl is the ICF home. With this system, concrete is poured into insulated blocks, planks, or panels that interlock. Special grooves ensure a tight fit. With Dernehl as your Atlanta ICF contractor, your home can withstand the most extreme weather conditions, outlasting wood in terms of durability and longevity. Homeowners that choose ICF can enjoy impressive energy savings as well. This system offers maximum insulation. Combined with endless design choices, ICFs are the top choice for homeowners seeking customization and long-lasting craftsmanship.
CAST-IN PLACE CONCRETE FORMS
With concrete poured into temporary, removable forms packed with reinforced steel and insulation, your home becomes a fortress that can withstand severe Atlanta weather. The interior walls can be furred out for drywall or custom-textured for a sleek or earthy look, depending on your preference.
CONCRETE PANEL SYSTEMS
For Atlanta homes situated on flat, sprawling land, you might consider concrete panel systems. Precast concrete is transported to your property, lifted by cranes, and secured to your home’s foundation. With tilt-up concrete, wall casting takes place on-site. The walls are then tilted into place. With proper planning, the installation of your home is both efficient and seamless. Our concrete panels can be flat or curved to fit your residential vision.
AUTOCLAVED AERATED CONCRETE (AAC)
Popular in Europe, this precast concrete mixture expands and creates small air pockets. This greatly reduces the weight of the concrete, without sacrificing much in terms of strength or durability. This material has superior fire resistance and can be molded into blocks of any size.
There is nothing more exciting than seeing your vision come to life in concrete form. At Dernehl Company, our team relishes seeing the excitement in your eyes once your home is ready to be unveiled.
Not only will you have a one-of-a-kind concrete home to call your own, but you will also have the assurance of knowing your home is built to last.View Projects
For many of our clients, the decision to use concrete goes beyond aesthetics. Not only are our luxury concrete homes beautiful, but they are also functional. Some of the numerous advantages of concrete include:
Contrary to popular belief, concrete homes can be finished to look any way you desire. The options are breathtaking. With concrete, you aren’t limited to a certain look. That is because concrete is a building material, not a style.
Our concrete homes can withstand harsh weather, which makes them an attractive choice for Atlantans that want peace of mind. You can rest easy knowing your concrete home can stand up to high winds, heavy rains, hot summers, flash floods, and icy winters.
SMART ENERGY SAVINGS
As a savvy homeowner, you can offset the cost of concrete building materials with the long-term gains from lower energy and insurance costs.
Concrete drowns out noise pollution. It is ideal for a family, celebrity, or individual who values discretion, whether entertaining private parties or simply enjoying a peaceful retreat from the outside world.
MAXIMUM FIRE RESISTANCE
Safeguard your family, pets, and prized possessions with a concrete home. Concrete is flame retardant, so it offers increased protection in the event of fire compared to homes constructed of wood.
The process for constructing a concrete home differs substantially from building a home from wood. For this reason, it’s essential to hire an experienced Atlanta concrete home builder.
At Dernehl, our concrete builders eliminate the studs, instead of using ICFs, blocks, posts, or panels. Every inch of concrete is meticulously laid according to the specifications you requested during the consultation process. Our professional concrete builders ensure the work is done right the first time. We eliminate costly mistakes by making the small details of your project a top priority.View Projects

Both are versatile, time-honored building materials. Each has pros and cons. Wood is less expensive than concrete, however, it tends to age faster.
Repair and maintenance costs for wood are also higher. Concrete is flame resistant, rot resistant, pest resistant, and can withstand high winds during a storm.
