Unlike most contractors, we work off the client's budget. Instead of saying "pay this" we value engineer their project to make it both affordable and ensure they get the best bang for their budget. We love beating other quotes and giving a better product, our motto is "If It's unusual, we'll build it!" We also love small jobs, handyman type work. Everyone gets treated with the same respect.
