“My husband and I had planned to build a new home and were near the conclusion of final architectural plans when an older home on property adjoining ours came up for sale. The location was spectacular and the home’s basic layout was very similar to what we’d hoped to build, so we changed course, bought the house and set out to undertake a total renovation. It was important to us to find a contractor with experience in both new construction and remodeling and, in particular, one who would be comfortable with figuring things out as we went along, as we did not want the delay and cost of another set of architectural plans. Kenny Guffey turned out to be the perfect choice. Unlike new construction, any renovation project as extensive as ours is going to present unexpected challenges. In addition, we had lots of ideas of our own (some excellent, some not). Kenny and his team were always willing to listen, often came up with innovative ideas of their own and never hesitated to bring in other expertise, when needed, to ensure the best results. Kenny himself is an experienced builder, but his greatest asset is the team of employees he has recruited over the years. Each is skilled in multiple building trades and crafts and they work extremely well together. This added to the “quality control” aspect of our project, as each of his team feels responsible for the whole job and each pays attention to work performed by others.”

After selecting a set of house plans, my search for a contractor began. It seemed to me that the standard method of gathering three estimates and going with the low bid was seriously flawed. All contractors are not the same, and the homeowner, not the contractor, determines the cost of the house.  The characteristics I was looking for in a contractor was honesty, dedication to quality, and a great “eye” for detail. My search stopped when I met Kenny Guffey. Kenny exceeded my expectations in a home builder. The normally stressful time of building a house was actually fun and rewarding. The best testament I could give Kenny came a few years after building our first home. We decided to relocate to a nearby town. There was no question who would build our second home, and I was just as happy with Kenny the second time as the first. Building a house is a big decision. A lot of stress, effort, and money goes into it. You deserve a contractor who will be honest, not cut corners, and build your house to be the envy of the neighborhood. Do what I did. Hire Kenny.

Kenny was originally referred to me by another builder who was too busy at the time to build for me.  Therefore we could refer to him as the “builder’s builder.”  My wife Becky and I have been in our house now for 5 years.  The attention to detail that Kenny paid to building our home has come to the roost!  We have had no significant problems of any type with our house.  Everything has worked well and we constantly have positive comments about the quality Kenny and his crew built into our house.

More significantly, Kenny and his wife Becky are people of character.  I know for a fact that Kenny considers his reputation to be more important than whatever amount of money he could make by bypassing quality issues.  Additionally, he was always very upfront with what our costs would be.  Although I consider Kenny a friend, that has not colored my judgment of his work, which is excellent.  Moreover, he has a knack for “connecting” to clients a very positive and open way.  I have referred him to several friends.  Everyone who has used him as a builder is amazed that, finally, here is an honest one.
