Relentlessly obsessed with quality.

Unlike many other construction companies, Elite Design-Build is committed to quality craftsmanship.  We exclusively use the best materials and offer the industry’s best warranty on all labor and materials.   


Our goal is to work with clients for whom the highest-quality is the most important value, and create lifelong relationships with you for all your home design, construction, and renovation projects.


Elite Design-Build is experienced with a variety of project types and scopes.

  • Kitchens & bathrooms

  • Custom woodworking; including cabinetry, stairs, fireplace mantles, entryways, doors, and window casings

  • Built-ins; including shelving, home offices, entryway benches, bed frames, etc...

  • Accent walls & ceilings; including wainscoting, tongue & groove, shiplap, and coffered ceilings

  • Custom decks & porches

  • Exterior framing, siding, and roofing

  • Whole-house builds



Our pricing is upfront and honest -- and reflects the expertise, quality of materials, workmanship, and professional communication that you’ll experience when you hire us. 


Instead of bidding low and then rushing projects to move onto the next one as soon as possible -- Elite takes the time to get every last detail right.  We will never compromise on quality to cut costs, and we work with homeowners who want the best.


We always provide in-person estimates, realistic schedules that work for you, and final payments aren’t due until the finished work is completed to your complete satisfaction.

Plus proactive check-ups after completion.

When you hire us, you're getting more than just a construction company -- you get peace of mind.

Our work comes with a 3-year warranty on labor and materials, a 5-year warranty on defects, and a 10-year structural warranty. 


We also conduct home check-ups 3 & 6 months after completion, to ensure everything is up to ours and your standards, and we'll perform 'tune-ups' if anything is out of place -- including scratches, caulking that's shrunk, and drawer adjustments.


From creative, thoughtful interior design to carefully crafted construction.

We'll always start with an in-person meeting at your home, so we can get to know one another and make sure it'll be a good fit working together.  We'll answer any questions you have about the process, budgets, your financing options, timelines, etc...

Once under contract, we promise to work transparently and make your project a top priority.  Our interior designer and lead contractor will meet with you to understand your goals and preferences and then begin to carefully craft a plan.


We can include you as much or as little in the shopping and design process as you'd like -- we want to make this process as easy, streamlined, and fun for you as possible!  And we'll always guarantee you'll love the end-product.
