Our Approach

Building or remodeling your home may be one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, and Oliver Builders will be by your side to bring your vision to life. We take a team approach to every project; we will work closely with you, your architect, our skilled craftsmen, our subs and suppliers to ensure an excellent result. We believe that this collaborative approach results in a superior finished product. We bring our experience and ability to you in a personal way providing the quality you want and expect, within an established budget, and in the time promised.

It is never too early to talk to us about your project. We can use our expertise to advise you of the cost of construction and help you make decisions regarding design as well as materials during the planning process. Prior to beginning, you will receive an estimate detailing the costs, a clear job description and an accurate schedule. Once your project begins, we will meet with you regularly to discuss progress, review the budget, and address any questions or concerns. We pride ourselves on our personal service and our availability to our clients. In addition, our usage of the best construction software program and other internet technology helps keep our clients up to date with all project information and details. We use the award winning construction management system program called Buildertrend. This system allows us to keep information flowing between our office staff, production managers and clients.
