The 3 Cs of Project Completion

There is a reason Albert Cichra Builders, Inc. has an outstanding reputation for quality and customer service. Unlike the other guys, we only take on one construction project at a time. That means you receive the full focus of our crew’s skills and attention for the entire duration of your project. Plus, Albert personally oversees every aspect of your build, which includes:

  1. Conceptualization

    So, you want to build something. What do you have in mind? Albert will meet you onsite to determine the scope of your individual project. He’ll recommend the best materials and design options to suit your purpose, upkeep needs and, of course, your budget. With more than 30 successful years in the industry, Albert knows how to hammer out a project plan to make sure every contingency is considered. The price and project timeline you sign off on are the price and project timeline Albert honors. No surprises. No hidden costs. Just a well-conceptualized project plan that ensures a successful build and a very satisfied customer.

  2. Construction

    A quality build hinges on quality materials and quality craftsmanship. With Albert Cichra Builders, Inc. you can rest assured that you are getting both. We only use the highest grade materials from the most time-tested and well-reputed vendors. We also only have one work crew that devotes its full attention to your project until the work is complete. Our guys are known for being one of the most professional and respectful crews in the local industry. They are all highly-skilled craftsmen who share Albert’s ethic for not only building things that look good, but also for building things that last. In fact, we stand behind our work long after any conventional warranty has expired. We’re that confident you’ll be pleased.

  3. Code Compliance

    One of the most daunting parts of any construction project is properly pulling all necessary permits to ensure code compliance. Unlike other companies, we carefully and thoroughly handle all aspects of permitting for you in order to ensure that you are protected from any future compliance issues. Our outstanding reputation for 100% code compliance and environmental consciousness has garnered us positive relationships with all of the various permitting entities. So breathe easy. From your original application to the final inspection, we’ve got you covered.
