The project finished ahead of schedule, on budget, and the quality is outstanding!

Joel remodeled our main floor, fireplace, kitchen, and stairways and we love it! The house was built in 1979 and to incorporate the new changes within the existing design required experience, creativity, and imagination. Joel presented a variety of options, trying to define what our needs were.

Once we settled on a vision, Joel helped us bring the project into focus and worked with us to include all of the details and fit our budget. He provided us with a plan including a start date and a firm schedule. He supervised all of the sub contractors and expected the best from them. We were so confident of Joel and the success of the project, that we left it in Joel’s hands and went out of town for over a month. Upon our return, we found that everything was completed exactly as we had hoped or better. The project finished ahead of schedule, on budget, and the quality is outstanding.

We had one final closeout meeting with Joel and he asked us if there was anything else to be done.  We couldn’t think of a single loose end. He had completed every detail discussed and more. I have worked in the construction business and completing a project to this high degree is a testament to Joel’s expertise, experience, and attention to quality. He cares about his customers and wants them to fully enjoy their new home.

Overall, this project went off without a hitch – better than we have even expected!

Our company has hired Pine Butte Builders for multiple commercial building and remodeling projects over the last 12 years. The most recent was a large scale construction project for a new bus and RV service facility on our property in Clackamas County. Our new shop consists of a metal building on a concrete slab, with approximately 12,000 sq.ft. for the service shop w/ 10 bays, plus 4,000 sq. ft. of finished office and mezzanine space. Joel was key from the start to finish of this project. From the initial budgeting process to determine if it was even feasible, throughout the entire process to the final touches, Joel made sure all our needs were met. We came in under budget and within the timeline we expected 

He was instrumental in helping us keep our costs down by making smart design and material choices, and worked seamlessly with our architect & engineering firms. He was also flexible during construction when we asked for changes, even at the last minute. We were pleased with all the subcontractors he hired and never had any issues with safety or security during the entire 6+ month construction.

Overall, this project went off without a hitch – better than we have even expected. Joel and his team are professionals from the word go. Although I think we’re finally done with new construction and renovation at our facility, Pine Butte will be the first contractor we will call if that ever changes.

It could not have gone more smoothly.

My wife and I recently acquired a townhouse in Welches Oregon.  We loved the area and wanted to do some remodeling to make what was a special place even more special.  The team at Pine Butte has a strong reputation in the area, so we engaged Joel Mumford for the project.  It Couldn’t have gone more smoothly.  As with any remodeling project there are myriad of choices related to construction options, materials, etc.  Joel and his team were the perfect consultants leading us through the process.  We Couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.  The project was completed on time and on budget, but even more impressive was the great communication and partnering we received from the team throughout the process.  Without hesitation I can recommend Joel and the team at Pine Butte!

The jobs always came in on time and on budget.

Joel Mumford, owner, Pine Butte Builders, was the general contractor twenty-five years ago when I was the general manager at The Resort at The Mountain, Welches, Oregon.  It was his job to turn an aging resort into a beautiful Scottish Highlands retreat.  In order to do this he renovated and updated 132 condominium units, recreated a lodge building complete with a restaurant and lounge.  He also rebuilt the Golf Pro Shop and created a restaurant and lounge at the Golf Course.  The jobs always came in on time and on budget, resulting in guest satisfaction, and making the management of The Resort much easier.

Ten years ago Pine Butte Builders added an art studio to the second story of my private residence.  This required tearing off a good portion of the roof and opening an exterior existing wall.  The new room was highly functional, complete with beautiful cabinetry and skylights.  It is a delightful addition  to the house.

This year Pine Butte created a bedroom in an existing space at my daughters home.  The success of the project relied on Mumford’s creative problem solving and vision for the project, along with major attention to detail involving matching complex molding throughout the room.

These experiences with Pine Butte Builders spans many years of consistently excellent results.  I always call with the confidence that the job will be completed successfully.

From the bid process all the way through completion, we were very impressed with Joel Mumford and his crew of sub-contractors.

When we decided to have our master bath remodeled, we asked neighbors and  friends for recommendations and Pine Butte Builders, Inc., was at the top of the list.

Great experience! From the bid process all the way through completion, we were very impressed with Joel Mumford and his crew of sub-contractors. They were all very professional, easy to work with, explained everything along the way, on-time, and the workmanship was top-notch, down to the small details. They took great care protecting the areas of our home that they walked through and worked in from dirt and damage. Our bathroom turned out even better than we imagined. We’re extremely happy we decided to go with Pine Butte Builders, Inc. We would definitely work with them again and plan to in the near future.

What a surprise to find a builder that was honest, earnest and efficient.

Coming in on budget and on time was essential for us and Joel helped us make choices that allowed us to reach our goal. We found the subcontractors Joel uses, to be high quality craftsmen. Building a house can be stressful because people are used to buying things ready-made these days, but Joel’s friendly manner and job management style made the process fun.

Joel brings honesty and integrity.

Joel brings honesty, integrity and patience to the building process. His communication skills and diligence are appreciated. If we love it, he loves it!

Our house greatly exceeded our expectations and the quality is almost beyond words.

We were on an extremely tight budget and lived 200 miles away when we built our home. Our builder had to deliver at the agreed price and on schedule. Further, we depended upon Joel to creatively solve problems when we couldn’t be present. In fact, we were able to visit the job site only four times during construction. Joel delivered at the agreed upon price and we were able to utilize our contingency fund for things we didn’t think we could afford at the outset, and Joel completed our house ahead of schedule. That is unheard of in residential construction. Our house greatly exceeded our expectations and the qualtiy is almost beyond words. If we have on piece of advice, it is to stand back and let Joel build your house. You won’t be disappointed.
