At present Steve will bring the customer from concept stage through design, on to the finished product. We take great pride in our final product, knowing that our firm is committed to taking care of the customer with the utmost respect and responsive services required in today’s quality conscious environment.

Gander Builders reputation with area tradesmen, village officials and satisfied customers has earned their respect over the years. We work closely with both the client and the trades, guiding them confidently through the design and building process. We are committed to listening to our customer’s needs and suggestions, along with all ideas brought to us by our subcontractors. This concept has allowed us to grow with the changing times and turn out a finished product that each and every participant in the project is proud of.

We use the latest in computerized programming and communication technology to streamline our building process, everything from Nextel radio systems, Buildsoft Construction software to automated faxing. Gander Builders is a full service custom homebuilder. From the day of contract through completion and on into the service, we work on specifics with a personal touch. Attention to details and communication with our customer is the key element setting us apart from other builders.
