Westport Builders, Inc. provides planning and construction services for a wide variety of projects in the Monterey Bay area. Major renovations and green construction are the focus of our business. We provide personalized attention and fair building practices, which lead to successful outcomes for our projects.
Our mission: to create the best
living environment for our clients.
Westport Builders, Inc., was started in 1980, as part of a Santa Cruz development company. For nearly thirty years, our exclusive focus has been on building and remodeling residential structures for satisfied customers. As General Contractors, we have built dozens of fine homes and completed hundreds of renovation projects.
Working with many of the best architects and interior designers in the Monterey Bay area, we have built outstanding projects in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, and Monterey Counties.
With the knowledge and experience from many projects, we know how to manage a complex project properly. We have the capability to budget, schedule, and supervise your project in the most cost-effective manner.
Over the years, we have produced a variety of projects with one common theme: practical craftsmanship. We utilize the talents of the best subcontractors and tradesman in the building business to create and renovate beautiful homes. Our mission is to insure customer satisfaction within the construction process.
How We Work
We usually work from a negotiated contract. We are not the “low bid” kind of contractor. We provide high quality workmanship at a fair cost with a reasonable profit. We enjoy the building process and strive to create an exceptional project with good detailing and proper management.
Most new construction projects are “lump sum” based on an extensive bid process. Nevertheless, the project can evolve or change significantly during the course of construction. Change Orders and Allowances provide mechanisms for flexibility during the course of construction.
Since most of our work comes from referrals, many projects we build are for repeat customers. For those who don’t know us already, our new clients will have had experience with building projects in the past. We rarely work for someone who has never “experienced” a construction project in the past.
At least half the projects we have built are on a time / materials basis, especially remodeling projects. We provide a “good faith” estimate and work diligently to stay within the cost parameters. For repeat customers, who know us and know how well we work, this method is the fairest approach to remodeling and restoration. In these ways, our customer’s interests are best served. From their initial dreams and wishes, our project has a truly successful outcome and we can all be proud of the building or remodeling a beautiful and practical home.
Our whole effort is to provide superior workmanship at a fair price.
