Our Approach ...

 

As a licensed, full-service general building contractor, we are capable of projects as simple as a front stoop and as complicated as energy-oriented concrete home construction.  Our approach and process allow us to understand, educate, support, and guide our customers.  

For over two decades, we've focused on researching and testing the latest in high performance and innovative construction technologies and processes. This helps us best serve our customers with efficient and cost-effective expertise, materials and methods.

During our complimentary consultation, we answer questions and discuss what’s working and what doesn’t work for you, your dreams, pictures, and ideas you have to share.  We are very focused on the structural and foundation components of our projects.  We know that the foundation and structure of a home ultimately has the biggest impact in the long run.  In addition,

  • We focus on practical building concepts and systems that help minimize costs and maximize the end result.
  • We strive to maintain a strong education on new products and building concepts that will help us to provide better results for our customers.  Our customers tend to bring unique ideas, products, and concepts into their own projects and we help to incorporate these and exceed their expectations.
  • Our reputation has been forged by the hard work, integrity, and service we provide in the planning sessions and communication with our customers.  
  • We trea t people with the dignity, respect, and appreciation they deserve.  
  • We do not employ commissioned sales people, or even sales people for that matter.  Our customers deal directly with the people that are intimately involved with projects from start to end.
  • We have a long list of satisfied customers and long-term relationships that all began with sketches and a blueprint.

 

5 Benefits of Working with Solid Ground ...

 

...INTEGRITY...

At Solid Ground, we strive to build in ways that really make sense, including how we work customers and provide them with what they are looking for.  Our business model is far from the cookie cutter approach that you see with production and national builders. 

...FOCUS...

We focus on your unique needs and project goals to help achieve results beyond what you can envision.  We use our experience and unique talents to educate and guide our customers and to help them make decisions that they feel good about. 

...COMMUNICATION...

Good communication is not easy, and saying “people are people” is not one of our mottos.  We understand that just because something was said doesn’t mean it was heard, so we endeavor to use proven processes to help ensure your decisions are clearly communicated.  This includes getting to know you so we can better understand your needs, and working hard to get things written out so all parties involved in your project are clear on what needs to be done.

...QUALITY...

Of all the ways one can describe quality, we bring it right back to the people and processes involved in assuring great results.  We work hard to make sure you have the best materials and services affordable to exceed the goals of your project.  We focus on quality vs. quantity or volume of homes.  To the Solid Ground team members, quality means assuring all the details are covered, including operating with integrity, focusing on what you and your family desire, communicating with clarity, and building excellent homes and home improvements. 

...THOUGHTFUL...

We believe that thoughtful decisions should be made when building.  If we are going to be intelligent about our home building and home buying decisions, then we must acquire and apply knowledge.  We must be able to adapt to our new environment and changes in the current environment.  We must have the ability to comprehend relationships, evaluate and judge, and have the capacity for original and productive thought.  We believe that thinking through your needs and goals for your family will help produce better results, and this is how we work through the process of making thoughtful choices with each owner.

 

Matthew 7:24-27 (NIV)  24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”             Two Builders, Two Houses, Two Foundations, Two Very Different Outcomes
