A New Focus

With Better Built, Troy 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.” Troy sought to introduce a fresh approach that emphasized quality, the offering of extra amenities as “standard”, and a genuine commitment to customer service.
