What our home owners say about us.
Jerry quickly earned my trust. He was upfront with me about his estimates, what was going on the City permits, the Planners, his subcontractors, and the schedule. Whatever he told me was on target, and his follow-through was remarkable. If I asked him about some small detail, there was always a full explanation that put me at ease. He took time with me, no matter what else was on his plate. Most of all, Jerry always did what was best for me, not what was best for him. In today’s world, I would say there are few who have the talent and personal commitment that Jerry Spivey has. I highly recommend Better Builders without reservation.

We had a big job. Very big job. Jerry was so knowledgeable of his craft and masterful. We dreamed up some incredible feats such as engineering a beam with a lot of offsets to install cathedral ceilings and complex roofline, and putting in a stairwell we purchased in the south. He played close attention to detail the whole way through.
We particularly appreciated that Jerry was on our job site as leader, not just a contractor. He has a wealth of experience and an interestingly innate ability to analyze and handle situations. We cannot speak highly enough of Jerry Spivey and Better Builders of Oregon.

There were so many decisions to make building our new house – many decisions that required experience we didn’t have. When questions came up about how we wanted something done, Jerry always asked, even about small things. He would explain various options and help us through the process. And if we wanted something done that was a little outside the box, Jerry found a way to satisfy our wishes. At all times, he cared not only that we were pleased, but well-informed.
We personally enjoyed watching Jerry’s plan in action. He employs perfectionism in how he orchestrates things, carefully planning ahead to avoid any glitches or unnecessary delays. If we ever build again, we will have Better Builders be our builder - no question!

I did my homework and researched green builders and in particular, ICF specialists around the state of Oregon. I was so incredibly grateful to find Better Builders of Oregon because Jerry spent more time with me up front to explain the process, the differences between the different green building systems and to walk me through all the benefits and alternatives. He knew the technical aspects of building system and how a home goes together better than any other contractor I had met in my many months of research. Better Builders is a superb builder, full of talent, trustworthy, pays attention to the details and kept me at ease and happy during the entire process. I HIGHLY recommend Better Builders as your custom home builder.

I recently contracted with Better Builders to complete a contemporary condo remodel in downtown Portland whilst I was living halfway around he world in the Middle East. Although the distance and time difference would seem to make this a challenging proposition, Jerry’s attention to detail and dedication to get the job done right made the process easier than could be imagined. I believe Better Builders quality work and ability to make creative, practical design decisions with limited input from me contributed towards getting offers within 14 hours of being on the market and a sale price higher than originally anticipated!!
Many thanks to the Better Builders team for a job well done!
