Because we know building performance

We advocate for homeowners and other clients by providing them with peace of mind and confidence that their building project will withstand the test of time and perform at the highest level.

  • “Assisting us from start to finish”

    Joray D.

    We used Complete Building Solutions on a church roofing replacement and ice dam issue. The new design to correct the ice dam problem has worked very well this last year. The contractor CBS set us up with has done a good job on the roof replacement and implementation of Rob's design to correct the ice dam issues. The interface with the insurance company has been handled with very little input from our side. I would highly recommend CBS.

  • "Quality and Expertise!"

    Issac S.

    "A little while back, I had some issues with poor insulation in my attic. I called Complete Building Solutions and Rob was quick to acknowledge my concerns. Rob made me feel like I was his top priority. He showed up on time as scheduled, walked me through my current situation and explained what the solution was and why. It was great to be able to understand what needed to be done and the peace of mind of knowing it was not just a temporary fix. CBS is my recommendation if you want quality and expertise."

  • "Cost Effective Solution"

    Matthew D.
    Complete Building Solutions did a great job of understanding our engineering needs, working with us to create a cost effective solution, and producing the needed engineering documents in a timely manner. We'll definitely use them next time engineering services are needed.
  • "The specs and instructions given were very clear and easy to follow."

    Marvin V.
    They quickly assessed what I needed and I had the specs sent to me before the end of the day. The cost for the services were actually less than what I expected because I could fit them in to an open time slot and I had the original house plans which made the job easier. The specs and instructions given were very clear and easy to follow. I would hire them again without second thought.
  • "He [Rob, principal] definitely knows what he is doing and fights for his clients."

    Shaylee O.
    Rob is going above and beyond the call of duty and he is the go-between in this process of getting my ceiling back to normal. Without CBS, I would have had major damage to my bedroom ceiling with no way to ever sell my house in the future. I am extremely grateful for his help!!! He [Rob, principal] definitely knows what he is doing and fights for his clients. I HIGHLY recommend Complete Building Solutions!!!

    Kendall C.

    "Wow!! I was so impressed with the service provided by CBS. The engineer and consultant were out at my property within hours of my incident. Even more impressive was how knowledgeable they both were. To top it all off, they had my full report certified and ready for me within a couple days. GREAT JOB CBS!!"

  • "I wish I had used them when I originally purchased my home."

    Aaron M.
    I was extremely pleased with their service. My inspection gave me peace of mind in my new home with some past foundation settling and potential water damage. They were extremely knowledgable and quick to identify any possible problems. Fortunately, my issues were far less serious than I originally anticipated. I wish I had used them when I originally purchased my home. They found items that were missed in my original inspection.
