About BetterBuilt of Northwest Florida

Our Heritage

While BetterBuilt of N.W. Florida was founded by Troy D. Speegle in 2009, the company’s lineage traces back more than 45 years. Speegle construction has been in business in the Florida panhandle since 1970 and continues to serve military, government, and commercial clients throughout the U.S. With a client list that includes the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command, Eglin Air Force Base (FL), Tyndall Air Force Base (FL), Cannon Air Force Base (NM), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, just to name a few, Speegle Construction brings a wealth of experience in performing major construction projects for the most discerning clients to the luxury home building industry.

A New Focus

With BetterBuilt, Speegle set out to establish a high-end residential construction company that applied the same quality standards that are hallmarks of his commercial construction operations. He found that, all too often, residential projects sacrificed quality and attention to detail for speed and “fattening the bottom line.” Speegle sought to introduce a fresh approach that emphasized quality, the offering of extra amenities as “standard”, and a genuine commitment to customer service.
