what our clients think

Barton Construction has constructed 3 stores for me, I have been extremely pleased with their quality of work, attention to detail and timely delivery. I highly recommend Barton Construction.

- Liz Crawford, Sport Clips

When it came to building our professional office building, we met with several capable builders, but after meeting with Doug, the owner of Barton Construction Inc., we knew we had our builder. From start to finish, it was a very streamlined process. He kept our project on track, and built the space we envisioned.

- Nilesh & Dr. Pooja N. Patel

Barton construction provided extraordinary service from the early conception phases of our new home construction to execution. Their attention to detail and follow-up was superb. They have my highest recommendation without reservation.

- The Richardsons

When it was time to renovate my car dealership, I turned to Doug and Barton Construction.  Their comprehensive design-build services and professionalism smoothed the way from start to finish and allowed my business to remain operational throughout the entire process.  Barton Construction provided first-rate work and delivered my project within Ford standards.  Quality scope. On budget. And on schedule.  I whole-heartedly recommend Barton for your project!
