Our Process: Custom Homes

Custom Homes The Clay Way

Building with Clay Construction is different. To put it succinctly, we build relationships founded on trust. To be more specific, we endeavour every day to be transparent, forthright and honest. We communicate often and openly. We own up to our mistakes, learn from them and strive never to repeat them. Clay Construction has been going strong for over 13 years and has experience in all aspects of construction. We draw on this wealth of knowledge daily for our custom home and renovation clients. At the end of the day, our goal is to always treat our clients as we would like to be treated.
