What Do Some Of Our Clients Have to Say?


I have worked with Chester for over 30 years on many projects and most recently on my own dream home. Chester’s integrity, commitment to his clients, and honest process make him a partner to be relied upon from start to finish.
– Nora Towns

In 2011, Chester did a major renovation to our house. From the beginning of the project, Chester was willing to hear our ideas and provide suggestions or solutions for the best results. His team worked very hard and took pride in their work, reflecting commitment to quality workmanship and details in the beauty of our home. Throughout the project, Chester and his team were always friendly, professional and willing to listen to our ideas or changes. He made our dream come true!
– Debbie and Pat Batson

Chester, you did a wonderful job taking care of the repairs on our home after the April 2011 tornadoes. You made the whole repair process more pleasant and painless than I had expected. The workmanship was impressive and you did a great job communicating with us about expectations and desires. All in all everything you did for us exceeded our expectations. Our New Year toast this year was two parts: a wish to have no more storm damage and being thankful for having a good contractor. Thank you for a job well done!
– Bob and Lee Capshaw

Chester & his company built our first home in 1973 and our next home in 1986. He just recently built us a detached garage with an art studio above. Chester gave us quality homes, built in a timely manner & within our budget. In the process of building, he has also become a very good friend.
– Lynn & Libby Chou

My husband & I had plans designed for our final dream home but unfortunately, my husband passed away before we were able to build our home. I shelved the plans for a long time, thinking that I would never be able to build this home by myself. A friend recommended Chester & after meeting with him, my confidence grew to the point of building. Chester guided me through the whole building process & I ended up with a beautiful English Tudor home that blends beautifully with the rough mountain rocky terrain. His attention to detail is exemplified in the finished product.
– Mrs. Ann Hough

Chester just finished a beautiful country home for us & we are very pleased with the quality. We were working within a very tight budget but Chester brought the home in on time & on budget. We are very pleased.
– Thomas & Julie Papetti

Chester West built our first custom home & also did an addition to the same home. We later moved to south Huntsville & bought an older home that needed extensive repair & Chester’s company provided that service. Chester & his wife Pat, have become very good friends with our family.
– Mike & Becky Turner
