Our Philosophy

Our main focus is toward the more discriminating buyer that may be buying their first home, but more likely are "down sizing" as their family moves on.

We try to build in superior locations that naturally attract home buyers and give each home our personal attention throughout the construction process.

Our standard features include many upgrades, and we are there for you after the home closes.

A good reputation in the construction business is very important, and we are determined to be the best at our home-building business. Reputable builders respect the building codes and try to keep pace with changing codes affecting the home-building industry.

Being a member of HBAMT and Better Business Bureau shows a builder's intent of responsibility and willingness to be accountable for their business practices. We have been members of both for many years.

We pay special attention to the integrity of the structures we build using top-grade materials and sturdy construction techniques.

We try to build home designs that reflect today's lifestyles.

Our attention to detail and our work ethics are a testament to our professionalism and a home well built.

Our goal is to grow our business as the "home builder our home buyers would recommend to their family and friends."

Let Gentry Contracting be your "builder of choice" and join the many satisfied home owners we have worked for over the years.
