Value Accurate Pricing

Do you know how hard it is to get an accurate price on a home remodel down at one of the big box retail stores?  Or, try this:  Google “cost to build a green home,” and you will get 92 million results in .20 seconds.  Pick one.

Solluna Builders and our clients value accurate pricing because we both want to know what a project will truly cost to build.  When you have confidence in the accuracy of the pricing for your new home or remodel project, you can make smart, informed decisions. Our accurate pricing adds value to your budget and plans, because we gather all the information necessary to create a detailed estimate for your project.  No surprises. Nothing left to chance.  No cost overruns down the road....
