Todd Best is a builder with great integrity. He puts the wishes and budgets of the owner on the forefront. Our house had a great deal of complicated cement work; steel framed and fine natural wood finishes and all was handled very smooth with no setbacks what so ever.
His crews were timely and his foreman arrived 1 hour early to organize the day. No one ever missed work and they were continuously there throughout the time it took to construct our home.
They kept a meticulous job site, arranged for sub trades to be there on time so the job flowed smoothly. All the sub-trades were of high quality and were able to take on all tasks given to them.
Billings were regular and understandable. They have an organized office staff. I am sure any one contacting Best Builders would be more than satisfied with the product they receive.
