As a general contractor, we understand that construction is more than simply following drawings and making sure a structure is up to code. It is about making the clientís vision come to life. This means that details are as important as the end result - the way joints are placed together, the careful installation of materials to showcase their beauty, the final brush stroke that finishes a project. From concept to completion we take the time to make sure each milestone is met with the highest levels of craftsmanship and professionalism. We stand behind our work, warranty every job, and make sure our clients are involved in each and every step.

In order to succeed in the construction industry, a general contractor must integrate superior craftsmanship, experience, and dedication within the companyís culture. We believe that teamwork, integrity, honesty, and attention to detail each step of the way, makes the best construction environment for everyone; which ultimately leads to great customer satisfaction.

Business Representative

Joel Portillo

As a teenager, Joel would enjoy working over his summer breaks as an apprentice for his fatherís commercial concrete and framing company. He also worked with his uncle who is an electrical and plumbing contractor.

During his time as a foreman for both his father and uncles company, Joel met a lot of people inquiring about a reliable, trustworthy, and efficient general contractor. After hearing about the unfortunate experiences homeowners were having with builders, Joel was encouraged to attend school and become a licensed builder. By the mid 90ís, having the core elements of construction under his belt (foundation, framing, plumbing, and electrical) Joel & Co. Construction was founded.
