Testimonials

Boren Construction has been providing professional custom home building, remodeling and home renovation services on Whidbey Island and throughout the Greater Puget Sound Area for fifteen years. Our reputation as building contractors is so important to us and we strive to be known for our quality construction, great communication, and high integrity. Reference letters and contractor reviews are available in their entirety upon request, along with contact information for direct recommendations.  As you can see from the contractor reviews below, we are most proud of the relationships we’ve built with our clients over the many years we have worked in the Pacific Northwest as custom home builders.

We demolished two thirds of a run-down cottage on our property and made plans to remodel it. With plans in hand, we contracted with Boren Construction. The final result exceeded our expectations. Being a remodel using some existing structure and foundation, it presented a number of challenges in both plan and elevation directions all of which Boren Construction resolved nicely. The siding used panel siding with aluminum extrusion, lap siding, and metal siding. LeRoy Boren and his team carefully detailed it all paying attention to relevant building science. We were kept apprised of any issues as they came up and of progress so we were never left guessing. LeRoy is passionate about building, and this shows not only in his work but in his enthusiastic attitude toward our project and details of others he has shared with us. We found him to be well organized and professional in all respects.

LeRoy @ Boren Construction was fantastic to work with. He and his team were knowledgeable and responsive in all my interactions with them. He laid out a clear renovation plan and executed it a timely manner and on budget. I have received tons of compliments on the end result. The whole process was super transparent - they used online tools that allowed me to track every phase of the project in great detail. Most importantly they are nice folks with high integrity. I highly recommend them!

LeRoy Boren is a professional in every sense of the word. He takes pride in his work and it shows. I have found that communication is key in maintaining a good working relationship and staying on top of the many aspects of a project and LeRoy is a great communicator and has systems in place to make sure the job runs smooth. I will not hesitate recommend Boren Construction to my clients. His integrity is beyond reproach.

I had recommendations for a few builders from people who were very happy, but chose LeRoy Boren because he had just completed a home across the street from me and everything I'd seen there seemed professional. I also liked the online system he uses to keep track of the project- this helped me to make timely decisions about fixtures and colors and avoid any delays. Getting the project permitted took months and months and I wanted to be into my house by summer. The old cabin was removed in December, ground broken in January, and I was in on June 12. The actual building from tear down to move in took less time than the site use permit alone. Everyone who saw the house being built has commented on the quality of workmanship. "I love your builder" was a comment that I heard more than once. The work moved fast but without taking shortcuts. LeRoy was always accessible to me by phone, email, and in person. He addressed any concerns I had, made his own suggestions along the way, but made sure I was happy with the choices. The sub-contractors were all very good, showed up on time, and worked late, and left the site clean. Problems along the way were minor and quickly addressed. This is the first- and last- house I've had built and I couldn't be happier with my choice of builder. I said from the start I had to stay within my budget and he did, but not by cutting corners on quality choices. When I was unsure he recommended choices and had an eye for the aesthetics of the project. LeRoy takes great pride in his work, and for very good reason.

"I used Boren Construction to build my new beach home. From the start to the finish they were very professional and through with my job, The detail and workmanship was impressive enough that I recommended them to my neighbor in building her new home. Boren is now starting construction on that house."

“As a practicing engineer in Washington State with a specialty in residential and commercial structural engineering, I have known Mr. Boren and been associated with his projects for quite a few years. I have experienced his approach to problem solving and watched him work with clients, architects, engineers, subcontractors and his crews. He shows an ability to interact comfortably with clients, putting them at ease and promoting them to give input. He has demonstrated a capacity to work with architects and engineers, discussing the issues in technical language, providing valuable suggestions and recommendations and converting those discussions into effective results.”

“When we decided to build a custom cottage on our property in Greenbank, we were repeatedly referred to Boren Construction.  From our first meeting, LeRoy understood our budget and design requirements, and introduced us to a designer to create our unique space.  By having our builder and designer work together during the design process, we were able to get a design that fit our budget, and they took care of the permitting process as well.  Before we even began construction, LeRoy helped us make every selection decision for our project.  Because of this, our cottage was built on time and on budget, and the quality of the craftsmanship exceeded our expectations.  Boren Construction’s entire team of carpenters and subcontractors took really good care of our home, and were all very knowledgeable.  We would definitely recommend LeRoy and his team for anyone looking to build a new custom home!”

“We hired Boren Construction to build an addition to an existing older cabin, after interviewing several local builders. Boren Construction provided detailed project guidelines and consulted with us at each step to review progress and make any necessary changes. The construction was finished on time and within budget.  LeRoy Boren and his excellent crew have been together many years, and the quality of their work is first rate. They kept a clean worksite, and were respectful of the existing vegetation, especially the trees. The interior trim work using wood from our site is beautifully done, and LeRoy suggested metal work and lighting that complements the design perfectly.  I would highly recommend Boren Construction, and we plan to hire them again when we finish remodeling the old cabin.”

“As an owner of a construction related business, I’ve worked with a number of builders over the years.  When it came time to purchase and renovate our new waterfront home, Boren Construction was our first choice.  Ours was a major renovation, involving completely removing the existing roof framing- during winter.  Boren Construction’s skilled team anticipated and solved problems before they could affect the schedule and budget, and really helped us make good design and budget decisions.  As with any project of this size, there were challenges during the project and the Boren Construction team made sure every aspect of the project was taken care of to a high level of quality and detail, and always clearly worked hard to deliver the outstanding results they are known for.  I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Boren Construction in the future, and highly recommend them to anyone who wants high quality work and long term service and accountability.”

“Boren Construction is a first rate building contractor. Their chosen sub-contractors are well screened and very competent. Boren Construction uses project management software for scheduling which helps keep clients informed on ‘next step’ progress. I have found them to be courteous, considerate and flexible during all phases of the project. The quality of the skilled craftsmen is notable and warrants your consideration for any project from a simple, small-scale remodel up to a complete custom home construction project. Confidence, competence and quality with a very personable leader is a potent combination for this high-quality custom home builder.”
Robert Lane
“Our new home is a space of beauty and luxury because of Boren Construction and their innovative team.  Our architect recommended a few builders for us to interview and obtain bids from, and though Boren Construction was not the lowest “bidder”, we are convinced to this day that no one would have given us the kind of quality, communication, and dedication that Boren Construction delivered.  We never made a phone call that wasn’t either answered or responded to within the hour throughout the entire process; additionally, every decision we made was skillfully guided by a true professional who saw how everything would come together better than we ever could, and that is what has made our home the wonderful place it is today.  Our greatest thanks to the professional team at Boren Construction for making our house a true home!”
