Our Team

Innovative construction operates strictly on the following ideals:

  • We treat our customers and subcontractors as we like to be treated
  • We don’t pick and choose when to have morals
  • We are only as good as our subcontractors
  • All of our subcontractors are educated in remodeling NOT new construction
  • We would not put a person in someone’s home that we would not put it our own
  • We believe in making each job and customer experience the best it can be and let the business grow organically; we are not motivated by the bottom line.
  • When you are a customer, you are a customer for life. We stand behind all our projects and guarantee the quality of work
  • We grow our business through client relationships, not through advertising.
  • We appreciate every job, whether it is a three hour job or a 5 month project.
  • We stress cleanliness on our job sites
  • Our business is a team.  Our employees work “with us”,  not “for us.”
