Some of Our Best Clients are the Ones Who DIDN'T Use Us
We have heard back from clients who experienced sticker shock and chose a less experienced company. They wound up paying more because of mistakes and multiple change orders. They did not get what Building Co. No. 7 delivers everyday: Excellence.
Correcting Mistakes Costs More Than Doing it Right the First Time
Get it right the first time by making wise and sustainable choices for long-term value. We do it the right way. Our knowledge-guided performance delivers value to you.

Q. Can you give me a ball park figure?
A. No. Every job is unique. Every estimate is unique. Therefore, giving out a guess is just that. A guess. We are not in the business of guessing. That would be a disservice to you and us. We do not want to set up false expectations about price. If we can take the time to sit down and figure the true cost of your unique job, we all win.
Q. Can you just patch it for now?
A. We realize that sometimes budgets can be tight. A patch is temporary. It can be peeled away. We want a permanent solution to your repair. Patching means someone will have to come back later and fix it again. When we put our name on anything, we want to be proud of it. Can anyone be proud of a patch? Even if it's good , some one winds up losing.
