The Veerman Sunroom
"We hired Matt and The Stratford Companies to convert our dingy screened-in porch to a sunroom eating area. We couldn't be happier with the results. My wife handed them a page torn from a magazine as a general idea of what we were trying to achieve. They captured the most important elements from that inspiration in the final result. In fact, I can honestly say that the result exceeded our expectations and is now our favorite room in the house. From start to finish, the project was handled expertly with an extraordinary attention to detail. This professionalism extended to all interactions with their employees and sub-contractors as well. I strongly recommend The Stratford Companies for any remodeling or new home construction, and will absolutely use them again in the future should the need arise."

Bringing it all to life

We assign a dedicated project manager (PM) to each of our construction jobs. This experienced individual works to ensure your project runs smoothly. They deal with subcontractor and supplier scheduling, budget creation and quality control. Their overarching responsibility is customer relationship management — i.e. keeping you up to date and involved to ensure your home reflects the design you worked so hard to perfect. One of the tools we utilize to do this is an online project management and collaboration service. This keeps direct lines of communication open between you and your PM. In addition, we issue each PM an iPhone and laptop computer, making every jobsite a mobile office.

Building a custom home requires a fair amount of trust and vulnerability between our clients and Stratford at every stage. You share your needs and dreams, along with your financial information with us, entrusting us to provide creative solutions and a quality product. We believe one way to reciprocate this trust is to operate with open-book accounting. This means that you see the cost of everything including labor, materials, overhead and profit margins for every item in the estimate. We empower you to make choices that align with your budget and your priorities.
