Clay Construction Team

Larry and Candice Clay


Building a Business with Integrity

To pursue their vision to build exceptional custom homes, Larry and Candice Clay founded Clay Construction Inc. in 2003. The Clays believe that a positive custom home building experience requires many elements:  a realistic budget, schedule tracking, detailed reporting systems, high-quality team, and a commitment to after-sales service.

From the start, Clay Construction has adhered to the highest standards, never compromising on quality. Over the years, this approach has earned Larry Clay and his team a solid reputation for excellence.

In addition to adhering to superior construction standards and client-centered service, Larry made a commitment to building with complete transparency and integrity. Larry’s primary goals are premier service and customer satisfaction. To meet those goals, Larry and his team monitor every aspect of the construction process to ensure that each detail is completed to the highest standard.
