05. Over 200 projects completed

18 years personal experience by our owner in many different fields of construction. Steel roofing, steel buildings, overhead doors, kitchens, bathrooms, new homes, additions, new garages, even moving some buildings!

What we Value



Authentic and as honest as they come. There won’t be any surprise prices at the end of your project. Any upgrades or changes will be brought up immediately and approved before moving forward. Honesty begins with open communication, don’t expect any surprise bills at the end. Our quote is what you pay, unless you approve changes.


Customer satisfaction is guaranteed. The project is not complete until you are satisfied. But we assure you, you will not get a better finished project from another company.



Customers are always asking us if we can try something new or implement the newest styles, colors or processes. We adapt easily to the newest trends, styles and services to keep you on the cutting edge.


Our aim at sustainability begins by donating as much of your “old” things as possible. Many people will still use your old cabinets, old sinks or old doors as “new to them” in their homes. We also try to save and reuse as much lumber as we can not only to save you money, but to save the environment just that little bit.



Times change and we adapt. We are continually educated on innovative products and services. We use up to date tools and processes to insure your project is precise when complete.
