Testimonial
I have known the people at Weaver Commercial Contractor for many years and have great respect for them. In 2005 our church began looking at expanding so we contacted WCC. We visited several newly constructed churches that WCC and other contractors had built. After meeting with other contractors we chose WCC for our project.  Our leadership team met WCC and discussed our vision and needs. They prepared and then presented us with a layout and together we worked through several revisions of the plan. WCC assisted in all areas of the project. They met with village officials to get city sewer and water issues resolved. They helped us with every phase of the project, often walking us through ideas that we had for certain areas of the building and interior design. The people at the construction site were always friendly and helpful when we had questions. Ron Wenger was always very willing to meet with and discuss our concerns our leadership team had. They were very conscientious about our budget and kept us updated with monthly budget reports. As a result we came in under the quote they had given. We always felt like we were well informed throughout the project and at no time did we feel uninformed. I would highly recommend WCC for any building needs you may have. They will walk you through every phase of the project. Their integrity is impeccable and the character of the company is evident from the top down. You will receive a quality product at a fair price from Weaver Commercial Contractor. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Sincerely,  
Pastor Duane Detweiler
