Having long standing relationships with many of the areas most accredited & successful home builders, Custom Installations understands what it takes to be a great subcontractor.  We’ve worked on everything from tract housing to luxury custom homes to multi-unit projects.  Competitive pricing, reliable service and expert craftsmanship are just a few of the reasons we obtain clients for years and years.

We are trained, certified and have elite status with many of the most prominent manufacturers including CertainTeed, GAF, DaVinci, James Hardie, Mastic, Beechworth, Pella and Marvin to name a few.  Our status not only gives us the best pricing & ensures all products are installed to current standard trade practices but it also allows us to offer extended warranties that our competitors cannot.

We always follow the specifications and make sure everything meets current building codes but we also believe that cost engineering ideas help you and your customers make the best decisions for the project.  There are many ways to budget & install roofing & siding and our estimates will clearly outline the differences with optional pricing.

We handle all of the exterior trades which allows us to help our builders coordinate all of the work and ensures that there isn’t any “finger pointing” between the trades.  Our process includes production audits that ensure that your various trades are being completed in the correct order with a goal to minimize cost over runs and change orders.
