Commons & Burt Builders’ mission is to provide a cost-efficient, high-quality building to the client’s satisfaction. 

My husband and I received bids and interviewed several contractors prior to a “major” home renovation on what would become our family home. We chose Commons & Burt for a number of reasons—a competitive and realistic bid, excellent references from prior clients, a glowing report from our own architect, and Steve and Owen’s ability to listen and communicate right from the start.

The working relationship between Commons & Burt and our architect was great. Steve is very effective as a team builder so all who were involved were on the same page. Owen was a very hands on project manager and his calm demeanor and years of experience kept things smoothly moving along. He was always very realistic about both the time and cost of completing any aspect of the job so there were no surprises, which we greatly appreciated.
We were consistently impressed with the professionalism of the subs who worked with Commons & Burt, and the quality of their work was outstanding. In less than a year, our fixer became the family home of our dreams. We have been in our home for over ten years and still love it!
