Testimonial

In June of 2015, we suffered a fire in our sanctuary. While a portion of our building was saved from the flames, our sanctuary was burned to the ground, and all of the surrounding structure was damaged. After interviewing several contractors, we opted to sign with Weaver Commercial Contractor. It was one of the best decisions we made. From the very beginning, they worked with us through every aspect of our situation. They interacted with the insurance company to be sure all of our needs were addressed. They helped us think through and find the best solution to our present and future facility needs. They worked hard to not only to present an option within our budget but also to build that facility within that budget. They addressed all of our questions and concerns quickly and thoroughly. As a result, we completely demolished the remains of our old building, downsized to a facility that better fit our present context, and built a new building. The building came in on time and on budget. We could not be happier. One of the most impressive things through this whole process is the interaction we had with WCC. They listened to us and worked to give us what we wanted. They never made empty promises or pushy sales pitches. They found solutions to help give us something that fit our budget and our needs. We are so thankful to have been able to partner with them in this process.
